Respectful relationships and intentional teaching

michael mims 134037

This workshop explores the art of intentional teaching to align our focus to the child's focus and needs. We discuss moving between roles of intentional observer, player, mediator and provider using proactive strategies to: develop positive and respectful relationships with children, support play and learning, and positively guide behaviour.

Explore and discuss the following topics:

The intentional listener: communicating positively with children

  • Value and provide secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships
  • Encourage confident and capable communicators

The intentional observer: interacting respectfully with children

  • Respectfully observe to move flexibly in and out of different roles as an educator, using proactive strategies
  • Being purposeful in engaging, questioning and respectfully entering children's play to avoid being the 'play crasher'
  • Being a co-learner and modelling learning dispositions

Child-focused practice and supporting children's identity

  • Respect and support diversity in your curriculum
  • Provide an environment that reflects children's lives, interests, family and commmunity
  • Consider behaviour from the child's perspective/needs to respond appropriately.

Workshop facilitator: Andrea Isitt
