Never Too Early: Social and Emotional Learning through Literature Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Washington County Starting Points - Waterbury
Instructor: Rachel Corbett

Teachers of young children and the children's books they provide are an important tool to guide children's social and emotional learning. In this two-part, workshop, early childhood professionals working with children birth to age 6 identify social and emotional themes in children's books; plan and practice using the books to promote social and emotional learning with children in their program; and design effective strategies to promote social and emotional learning in their program. There are two, two-hour sessions one week apart, and 2 hours of homework between the sessions. Participants must attend both sessions and complete the homework to gain the 6 training hours. Seven new children's books are provided to each participant who completes the training.
