Session 1 Landing Pad (download version)

This landing pad offers research (Just the Facts, Ma’am), videos and DVDs (See for Yourself), web resources (Find It Online), and organizations/initiatives that can be used to guide thinking about Quality Rating and Improvement Systems and the ways in which they are (or aren’t) intentional in their focus on children and families who are diverse in terms of their race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, language, culture, and ability. The featured materials also highlight the importance of using explicit terms and definitions, examining current approaches to data collection and analysis, and considering new methods and models.
