Teaching: A Guide to the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standard and Related Accreditation Criteria
Item #: 9903
# of Pages:68
The criteria in the five NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards that focus on children (Relationships, Curriculum, Teaching, Assessment, and Health) make clear the link between the quality of children's experiences in school settings and the quality of the teacher. Teachers juggle many tasks, and those who purposefully use multiple instructional approaches optimize children's opportunities for learning. This resource focuses particularly on NAEYC's Teaching Program Standard. Discussed here are developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate and effective teaching approaches that enhance each child's learning and development in the context of the program's curriculum goals.
This is one of nine booklets addressing the Standards and Criteria specific to NAEYC Accreditation of early childhood education programs. Be advised that if your program enrolls in NAEYC Self-Study (the first step toward Accreditation) it will receive a copy of this booklet, among other resources, as part of the cost of enrollment.
