Using the CLASS® Pre-K to Improve Program Quality – Online Series

up to 9 PD hours English Program Directors, Education Coordinators, and Education Supervisors

This series provides an overview of the quality indicators in the Classroom Assessment Scoring System® (CLASS) tool. Directors, education coordinators, and supervisors will reflect on the quality of teaching practices in their program and begin to identify areas for improvement.

Participants who complete the series will:

  • increase their knowledge of the tool’s research base
  • gain understanding of effective teacher/child interactions that are proven to support learning
  • learn strategies for using the tool in professional development and program self-assessment systems

Participants can earn up to 9 PD hours by attending the three facilitated online sessions and completing three online assignments. As part of the assignments, participants will have the opportunity to practice using sections of the tool in their own programs.

Please Note: This series has been approved by RIDE to serve as a RIELDS Next Steps class. Additionally, hours in this series can be applied toward meeting the RIDE CECE Approval Standard 4.1 requirement that education coordinators have documented hours of professional development in mentoring, supervision, and leadership.
