This project will be a training module designed for new and experienced teachers. It will include basic information on child development and developmentally appropriate guidance techniques focused on positively guiding the behavior of preschool age children. After completing the training, teachers will be better equipped to handle mistaken behaviors. They will understand why children display certain behaviors, which behaviors are typical, and techniques for dealing with the mistaken behaviors. It will also include a mentoring section. By doing this, experienced teachers will be able to share their knowledge with novice teachers. In addition, experienced teachers will be able to stay fresh and current on appropriate practices. It will be designed with the education of adults in mind.
