A New Way to Learn for A Higher Standard of Teaching
To help programs sustain the Pyramid Model while saving money, we created an online professional development program that makes new-hire or recurrent training for your staff easier. Like all our work, the courses are evidence-based and promote nurturing relationships between staff and children. Each of our courses are on-demand so your workforce learns at their pace and on their own time.
This module will focus on the importance of culturally responsive practices in enhancing outcomes for all children, especially those from diverse backgrounds. The role of implicit bias will be discussed. Participants will be offered a variety of activities for implementing the 7 principles of culturally responsive practices that help us recognize and identify implicit bias. Additionally, participants will be offered ideas for how to use the values of the family and community to inform teaching and learning through the lens of the Pyramid Model. The development of this module (2 hours) was partially support by the Pyramid Equity Project in collaboration with the University of South Florida, the University of Colorado Denver, and the PBIS Center with Preschool Development Grant national activity funding.
