1 Integrating CSEFEL into the Work with the Framework and Foundations
2 In this sessionExplore areas of overlap among the foundations, framework, and CSEFEL in:Overarching principlesTeacher strategiesScope of topicsDiscuss how CSEFEL resources can be integrated into professional development, particularly on the social-emotional development domain of the foundations and framework
3 The California Department of Education spent time and resources to develop a research-based system to improve the quality of programs for children and families. Each component of the system has a unique focus and is meant to be used with the other components.Each component of the system has a unique focus and is meant to be used with the other components.At the center of the system are the Learning and Development Foundations that describe the learning and development that preschool children typically demonstrate at 48 and 60 months with appropriate support.The Curriculum Framework offers guidance on how programs and teachers can support the learning and development described in the foundations through environments and experiences that are linguistically and developmentally appropriate, as well as individually and culturally meaningful and connected.Briefly go over assessment system, professional development, guidelines and resources…return to today’s focus on the foundations and framework.

5 What Does the Framework Do? 5What Does the Framework Do?“Created as a companion to the California Preschool Learning Foundations, Volume 1, this framework presents strategies and information to enrich learning and development opportunities for all of California’s preschool children.” p. v
7 National CSEFELNational Center focuses on promoting the social-emotional development and school readiness of young children birth to age 5.Jointly funded by the Office of Head Start and the Child Care Bureau, under the auspices of the Administration on Children, Youth and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
8 Partner Project: TACSEI TACSEI (Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Intervention for Young Children) is a partner National Center focused on sharing practices that improve the social-emotional outcomes for young children with, or at risk for, delays or disabilitiesFunded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs

12 CSEFEL Links to Products Each curriculum framework includes teaching strategies, interactions with children and families, and setting up of environments; and provides an overall approach for teachers to support children’s learning through environments and experiences that are:developmentally appropriate,reflective of thoughtful observation and intentional planning,individually and culturally meaningful, andinclusive of children with disabilities or other special needs.
13 Overlaps Among the Foundations, Framework, and CSEFEL Overarching principlesTeacher strategiesScope of topics
14 Eight Overarching Principles of the Framework Relationships are centralPlay is a primary context for learningLearning is integratedIntentional teachingFamily and community partnershipsIndividualization for all childrenCultural and linguistic responsivenessTeacher reflection and planning timeThe eight overarching principles outlined in the framework are also at the core of the CSEFEL Pyramid Model.

16 Framework Approaches: Environments and Materials The framework provides guidance on environments and materials to support children’s social and emotional development. Level two in the CSEFEL Pyramid model similarly provides guidance on creating supportive environments to promote social and emotional development.
17 Framework Approaches: Teachable Moments, Interactions, and Strategies Woven throughout the chapter on social-emotional development are guidelines for using teachable moments (click) and interactions and strategies (click) for teachers to use to support children’s social and emotional growth and development. Similarly, the CSEFEL Pyramid model addresses teachable moments, interactions, and strategies in both levels 2 and 3 of the model.
18 Engaging FamiliesRecognizing and respecting the primary role that families play in their children’s lives, both the framework and the CSEFEL Pyramid model provide strategies for partnering with families to support children’s social and emotional development.

20 Using CSEFEL as an additional professional development resource You and the teacher have identified interactions with peers and friendships as a place to start.

23 CSEFEL Module 2 Resources for Teachers Part III discusses social emotional strategies for Friendship SkillsLook at your handout for some of the resources availableDiscuss at your table how to use these resources to inform your work with teachers
24 Another OptionModule 2 Part III on Friendships is a one hour module that includes video clips, handouts, and activities.Pull this section from the overall CSEFEL training as a stand-alone module to deliver in a professional development training session for a small group, adding additional slides to connect the concepts to the foundations and framework as appropriate.Use the set-up slides from this presentation as part of your intro. Make sure to indicate the corresponding pages from the foundations and framework in the way that we did on the last slide.GO TO SET SLIDES AND SHOW MODULE

27 CSEFEL Modules 3 and 4: Beyond the Scope of Foundation/Framework Work Individualized Intensive InterventionsTop of the PyramidModule 4Leadership Strategies for Supporting Children’s Social and Emotional Development and Addressing Challenging Behavior
28 CSEFEL Areas of Caution The “Top of the Pyramid” is not addressed in the Curriculum Frameworks, and so is not an area that is anticipated as a CPIN area of training or support.In general, the development of intensive individual intervention plans is done by a team of people who include individuals with specific expertise in positive behavior support or behavior planning.
29 RememberIf there is a conflict between CSEFEL materials and California Foundations/Curriculum Framework, California’s information is the referenced.For example, CSEFEL includes references to “time-out” as a strategy, and this is not encouraged in California practice.
