This training guide helps early childhood staff and program leaders in American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) early learning settings implement the Making It Work (MIW) three-step process. There are many ways that staff engage with children and families. From center-based to family child care to home visiting, staff can pair the MIW three-step process with program models to integrate materials that represent the community, culturally and linguistically.
Use this presentation to facilitate a deep understanding of the MIW process and help programs develop implementation plans. Review the presenter’s notes for talking points, time frames, and handouts for each slide. Discover multiple sample agendas, including ones for trainers and participants. Use the trainer agenda that most fits the amount of time you have for the training. Find activities and handouts to help staff explore key concepts shared in the presentation.
