How to Promote a Problem-Solving Spirit in ECE (Webinar)
Learning Level 1: Introductory/Awareness
Intended Audience: Administrators, ECSE and General Educators, Teacher Assistants, Family Members, Family Educators, Psychologists, Social Workers, SLP’s, OT/PT’s
Confusion, small squabbles, bigger arguments, frustration, giving up. Young children encounter problems on a day to day basis, and what they do and what we as adults do when they encounter these problems can make all the difference! In this workshop, educators and family members will examine their role in these problems and learn how to instill a problem-solving spirit in their young children. Participants will learn what role problem solving plays in supporting young children’s development overall and specifically related to self-regulation; identify real opportunities for problem solving in the lives of the children in which they work; and walk away with specific strategies to promote a problem-solving spirit in their practice with young children. Putting reflection into action, educators will specifically create one problem-solving tool: The Wheel of Choices that they can use in practice the next day.
