Childcare Teachers

It’s not enough just to have excellent teaching materials. Early Childhood Education faculty sometimes need help improving their own literacy skills as well as creative and results-oriented strategies to use with their students. Using adult narratives and children’s literature, the Teacheread curriculum teaches essential literacy skills for use not only in the childcare workplace, but also in future educational pursuits. Additionally, adults learn how to be reading role models for children. All 29 lessons have been correlated with CASAS competencies as well as federal standards and guidelines.

In order to implement programming, participants need to attend Teacheread training that combines individual assignments, small group work, lecture, and discussion.

Training participants will

  • Learn about the adult education, best practice research for the curriculum and instructional strategies
  • Experience the curriculum as both learners and instructors
  • Examine the use of formal and informal assessment tools to maximize instruction and student success
  • Learn how to contextualize instruction for the childcare workplace
