2 Welcome and introductions Who is with us today? 2

3 Objectives Become familiar with Revised Foundations for Early Learning and Development NC Department of Public Instruction’s plan for roll- out of revised Foundations Seven professional development modules on ‘Effective Teacher Practices Supporting North Carolina Foundations for Early Learning and Development’ 3

4 The Back Story How we got where we are today 4

5 Foundations’ Five Developmental Domains Approaches to Learning Cognitive Development Language Development & Communication Health & Physical Development Emotional- Social Development 5

6 Foundations Treasure Hunt! 6

7 On what page(s) will you find… 1.The age periods used for developmental indicators (infants, younger toddlers, older toddlers, younger preschoolers, and older preschoolers) (Hint – look in pages 1-7!) 2.A text box that summarizes the intended uses for Foundations (Hint – look in pages 1-7!) 3. A summary of the document’s organization and guidance on how to think about developmental domains and their overlap (Hint – look in pages 1-7!) 4.A list of how goals and developmental indicators should and should not be used? (Hint – look in pages 1-7!) 5.The subdomains and goals for each of the five domains listed? (Hint – look beyond pages 1-7!) 7

8 Developmental Indicator Continuum Infants: birth to 12 months Younger Toddlers: 8 – 21 months Older Toddlers: months Younger Preschoolers: months Older Preschoolers: months Developmental Goals Continuum of Growth 8

9 Standards, Curriculum, and Formative Assessment Standards Curriculum Formative Assessment Define the expectations for knowledge and skills children should have Organized by age level Based on developmental literature Assumes additive acquisition of knowledge Adapted from Corcoran, Mosher & Rogat,

10 Standards, Curriculum, and Formative Assessment Standards Curriculum Formative Assessment Scope: the breadth and depth of content to be covered Sequence: the order in which content is presented Provides activities to facilitate critical areas of development and learning that can be embedded in classroom routines 10

11 Standards, Curriculum, and Formative Assessment Standards Curriculum Formative Assessment Adapted from The Council of Chief State School Officers, October 2006 A process used by teachers and children during play and learning activities, that provides feedback to the teachers and children, so that teachers can adjust their teaching to meet the needs of children, and so that children can understand what is expected of them. 11

12 Relationship between Foundations and NC Standard Course of Study Older Preschooler: Story sequence 3 rd Grade: Recounts stories 5 th Grade: Identify main points of stories High School: Analyze how author selected words and organized text for meaning English Language Arts 12

13 Relationship between Foundations and NC Standard Course of Study Older Preschooler: Patterning 3 rd Grade: Identify and explain patterns in arithmetic 5 th Grade: Analyze patterns and relationships High School: Arithmetic with polynomials and rational expressions Mathematics 13

14 Relationship between Foundations and NC Standard Course of Study Older Preschooler: Awareness of body 3 rd Grade: Understand human body systems 5 th Grade: Understand how organisms perform functions necessary for life High School: Understand cells and organisms: evolution and genetics Science 14

15 Relationship between Foundations and NC Standard Course of Study Older Preschooler: Recognize the roles of people in the community 3 rd Grade: Understand how events and individuals have influenced communities 5 th Grade: Chronicle key events and people in US history High School: Understands creation and development of societies and civilizations Social Studies 15

17 Stakeholder Input Identifying professional development needs for schools systems and the early intervention program – Stakeholder input helped to identify priorities for training and resources needed to implement into teacher/practitioner practices 17

18 Training Content Priorities Embed the Foundations and NC Professional Teaching Standards into existing professional development initiatives Focus on “instructional practices” Cross-walk to Common Core to communicate alignment with K-12 18

19 What does high quality early childhood instruction look like? What are research-based practices for early childhood? When a teacher implements a research based practice, what NC Professional Teaching Standard is she addressing? 19

20 Teaching Standards 20

21 What early learning standard is the teacher addressing in her practice? When a teacher implements a research based practice What early learning and development standard is she/he addressing? 21

22 What Teacher Standard Do You See? 22
