In this weeks media segment, Janis Keyser, Early Childhood Educator, explains how the “teaching to strength” approach is affirming and motivating for children. Rather than focusing on “fixing” areas of weakness, “teaching to strength” emphasizes building on and shaping positive traits, instilling a positive attitude to learning, and expanding childrens areas of expertise. Through this approach, early childhood professionals become keenly aware of the particular characteristics and preferences of the children with whom they work.
To prepare for the Discussion, reflect on the following:
In what ways does “teaching to strength” support any or all of the four anti-bias education goals as described in Chapter 1 of the course text? Be prepared to share at least two specific examples.
