Assessing What Teachers Need to Help Children Succeed

CSCCE Announces Commitment to Action at the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative America (CGI America) Meeting

On June 25th, the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment (CSCCE) announced our Commitment to Action, Assessing What Teachers Need to Help Children Succeed, at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) America Meeting. This represents a two-year commitment to expand the use of, and scale up our online tool, Supportive Environmental Quality Underlying Adult Learning (SEQUAL) and accompanying services and training resources.

SEQUAL plays a critical role in informing quality improvement strategies as it gathers teaching staff perspectives about quality improvement by addressing five critical areas of teachers’ learning environments: teaching supports, learning opportunities, policies and practices that support teaching staff initiative and teamwork, adult well-being, and how supervisors interact with staff to support their teaching practice. Just as children’s environments can support or impede their learning, work environments promote or hinder teachers’ practice and ongoing skill development.
