CURRICULUM TRAINING

Implement and teach with fidelity

We will review curriculum components to gain an understanding of how they are used for instructional purposes. Daily, intentional lesson sequences for social-emotional development using Conscious Discipline® strategies will be modeled. Teachers will review content area skills integrated into daily lessons representing all domains (Social Emotional, Cognitive, Language and Physical). Application of learning will be approached through group activities to model key lessons.

Follow-up Training will expand your knowledge of Frog Street curriculum to further increase the effectiveness of its implementation. This course provides an opportunity for educators to share their classroom experience to strengthen understanding of using the Frog Street curriculum with fidelity. Teachers are encouraged to bring questions and findings based on their observations and experiences.

Frog Street coaching focuses on making sure that educators are equipped to implement curriculum with fidelity. It is designed to foster communication and support, and the intentionality of coaching is reflected when both coaches and educators are prepared for the coaching session. The coaching sequence includes a strategy session, observation, and modeling.

This course is a customized, in-depth training of the curriculum pedagogy, organization, and implementation strategies. Focusing on these areas will strengthen the district or agency administrators’ ability to coach and support fidelity of curriculum implementation and effective, continued use. The course will focus on trainer-led model lessons and participant-led small-group applications to deepen the understanding of the curriculum for more effective future training.In addition, the course instructor will review an Administrator Classroom Observation Fidelity Tool and demonstrate examples. A training module (PowerPoint and supplemental training materials) will be provided for the district/agency to use in their implementation trainings.

Love & Learn is a home-based curriculum that empowers parents to be their child’s first teacher. We will review the components of the curriculum to gain an understanding of how they are used for home visitor guided interactive sessions. In addition, participants will understand how to implement the curriculum activities, observe the child’s progress, and plan activities with the family member. A special emphasis on developing social-emotional skills will support dyadic and triadic interactions.

Kids’ Club training is ideal to learn more about a summer school program, end-of-year review, or intervention support—and offers engaging, creative activities to make learning fun! This training will help teachers understand how to implement the program to meet the needs of all the children.

This training will serve as an introduction to ABCmouse with a walk-through of the teacher platform. This session consists of setting student experience levels, creating student groups, and assigning lessons to students. Participants will also review the student platform and discuss strategies to ensure fidelity of students within the program. Discussion among participants is encouraged about ways to incorporate different teacher and/or student functions throughout the day. This training goes beyond what is included in the Frog Street Pre-K curriculum and includes a library, additional math activities, and an avatar the children can design.

AIM Observational Assessment is designed to assist early childhood teachers and administrators in making thoughtful and developmentally appropriate decisions for guiding learning and progress from infancy to kindergarten entry. To ensure reliable results, it is important that teachers implement the methodologies of observational assessments with fidelity.

Designed specifically for Pre-K teachers, the Frog Street AIM Criterion-Referenced Assessment is a comprehensive, research-based, direct assessment tool that integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning outcomes. The Frog Street AIM Criterion-Referenced Assessment provides benchmark data to determine the skill levels and support needed for all learners. It is a web-based scoring and reporting platform that provides instant access to organizational data, parent tools, practice cards and letters that describe the child’s strengths and areas for growth. The implementation training provides data collection and assessment strategies for use in the classroom.

Assessment plays a critical role in the ongoing cycle of curriculum and instruction. This course will cover the importance of integrating the AIM assessment into your classroom, and how to do that naturally and effectively. Assessment should become an integrated part of your teaching practices and routines, not something completely separate other than the physical documentation. You can collect data through observation, anecdotal record, work sample, audio video recording, photograph or documented conversations. Assessing children in their natural environment as they perform actual tasks should be a functional part of the curriculum and your routine in the classroom.
