Emotional Support: Teachers Put CLASS™ Into Practice

The Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS™) measures emotional support in four dimensions: positive climate, negative climate, teacher sensitivity, and regard for student perspective. This training will prepare teachers to review these areas through the lens of their own teaching practices.

What to expect

This training is four clock hours.

  • Learn to identify and define interactions that fit in emotional support dimensions.
  • Recognize opportunities and barriers to emotional support interactions.
  • Set three action goals to support emotional support in the classroom.

Who should attend

  • Classroom-based teachers who work with preschool children
  • Family child care providers*

*While the tool is validated in center-based care, it’s used nationally to support quality interactions regardless of setting. For this reason, family child care providers will also benefit, but some of the wording and video would be less applicable.
