The Teacher Time series provides teachers and family child care providers with content knowledge and teaching practices related to child development.
The new season of Teacher Time (2021-2022) focuses on the four subdomains of the Early Learning Outcomes Framework domain, Approaches to Learning. The subdomains are: Emotional and Behavioral Self-Regulation; Cognitive Self-Regulation (Executive Functioning); Initiative and Curiosity; and Creativity. Practices, interactions, and activities highlighted in each infant/toddler and preschool episode focus on teaching and learning experiences that support children’s approaches to learning in ways that are culturally and linguistically responsive, and that promote children’s sense of identity and belonging by providing equitable access to learning for all children.
