Imagine an experience where teachers feel safe, comfortable, and eager to share their insights, struggles, and goals with one another and where the joy of learning and continuous quality improvement unfolds. This session will provide peer learning team strategies that lead to deeper understanding of assessment tools such as the Environment Rating Scales as well as state early learning standards. The result puts teachers and program leaders "in the drivers seat" of continuous quality improvement, by building team capacity to improve quality through integrated and meaningful use of the assessment tools and learning standards.
