Module: 1.3.4 Effective Supervision of Children and Youth
This module was revised in 2016 to incorporate social-emotional learning and Quality Standards for Expanded Learning in California as part of CalSAC's work with the Expanded Learning 360/365 project and revised in 2019 to incorporate language to support mental health and wellness.
Participants will gain skills for effective supervision of children/ youth by examining expected outcomes of working with children/youth, using tools for communicating expectations and applying techniques for dealing with problem behaviors.
In this training participants will:
- Identify social-emotional skills important to the development and growth of children and youth, to incorporate into their daily work
- Identify ways to communicate expectations for behaviors
- Identify and practice specific skills required for effective supervision of children and youth.
Participants review the Five Effective Supervision Guidelines and share a Heart Story.
Participants will work to define social-emotional skills and develop a plan to help children and youth practice and develop social-emotional skills.
Expectations for Behavior
Participants will use a model activity for developing expectations for appropriate behavior.
Participants will work to refine their supervision skills, using the Behavior Guidance strategies and scenarios for thinking through a situation.
