Understanding the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) (Focus on Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten)
This session will help Kindergarten teachers learn about the CLASS tool utilized in pre-Kindergarten classrooms, and through analyzing video exemplars and engaging in role play, understand how CLASS pre-Kindergarten indicators align to various elementary teacher observations tools (e.g., IMPACT, Danielson, etc.).
