Effective support and training are keys to the successful implementation of any curriculum. Educators who understand and support a curriculum's goals and objectives are more likely to implement the curriculum as it was intended and to promote positive outcomes for all young children. C4L recognizes the importance of providing effective curriculum-implementation training as well as ongoing opportunities for educators to learn and enhance their professional knowledge, skills, and practices.
While the teacher's handbook is an excellent place to start when implementing Connect4Learning for the first time, C4L users may also take advantage of the following professional-development opportunities:
Online Learning Modules
