Create a PowerPoint presentation for new early childhood teachers within your district to be shared at a professional development seminar. Be sure to include the following:
- Explain how early childhood education theories help teachers to understand the early childhood learner. Provide specific examples for your audience.
- Indicate how teachers can utilize specific theories during instruction (e.g., how can teachers utilize Piaget’s cognitive development theories to better design instruction for their age group).
- Use a minimum of three theories for this assignment.
- Use the resources listed above under videos and book(s) for this week to provide support and evidence for this assignment
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists. Keep in mind, the purpose of this assignment is to help teachers better understand how to utilize theory in order to better design classroom environments and curriculum tailored to their age group.
Support your presentation with at least two scholarly resources (i.e., journal articles). In addition to the journal articles and specified resources for this week, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 80-100 words for each slide
