This in-service professional development has two components:
1) Classroom visit workshop
Educators will observe Megan working with 1-2 age groups at their own facility.
This will be followed by a reflection on the observed interactions and discussion about practical ways in which educators can embed literacy into their daily practice.
Please note that this mentoring session must take place during facility operating hours.
2) In-service mini workshop
A whole team workshop usually delivered in the evening, over 2 hours, out of operational hours.
This interactive and information professional development session will inspire educators with new ideas and effective pedagogical approaches to teaching about literacy in the early years.
