Creating alignment between planning and teaching
2 days ago
In this week’s episode, we take a closer look at creating alignment between planning in the boardroom and practice in the classroom. In our conversation with, Carole AlKahouaji, we dive deeper into the scenarios that teachers and administrators face when working with the many moving parts of running a program. We discuss the different methodologies in an early childhood education setting, how foster a healthy relationship between teachers and parents as well as the importance of seeing teachers as professionals -- valuing them for the work that they do. We compare the way different countries implement their programming, from Germany, Italy, France, Japan and more. Particularly the different emphases on maintaining teacher well-being in order to create a low-stress environment that promotes play and active community building for young children.
