This edWebinar prepares early childhood consultants, coaches, and leaders to implement a simple five-step process that can be used to create and revise discipline policies that support young children’s social-emotional competence. Viewers will be able to:

  • Explain how high-quality discipline policies promote young children’s social-emotional competence and create more equitable climates for learning
  • Describe how the Teaching and Guidance Policy Essentials Checklist (TAGPEC) five-step process can be used to create and revise discipline policies to support the social-emotional competence of all children
  • Apply a reflective framework and consultative stance that is essential to forming collaborative and responsive relationships with teachers, families, and other program staff

The presenters share examples from case study programs, an overview of the seven essential features and 34 items of the TAGPEC, and pause-to-reflect activities that support learning of the consultative stance.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-3 teachers, school and district leaders, and early childhood consultants, coaches, and leaders.
