The art of intentional teaching

Environment ECECworkshops
This workshop explores the art of intentional teaching to align our focus to the child's focus and needs. We discuss moving between roles using proactive strategies to: develop positive and respectful relationships with children and to support play and learning.

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 community
  • Using intentional teaching to understand children's needs and positively guide cooperative behaviour

Workshop facilitator: Andrea Isitt
