This is the sixth module of eight. Module 6 covers CDA topic area 6: Maintaining a commitment to Professionalism. The five classes’ focus on helping providers explain what it means to be professional. We will use self-reflection to explore and examine what it means to be a professional and ways to develop and maintain professional relationships. We will review the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and the New York State Core Body of Knowledge. We will explore the professional’s role in advocacy for children, parents and the child care profession. We will discuss how our professional vision supports reflective intentional teaching. Participants will develop a plan for ongoing professional development. This module can support students who have previously taken CDA training but lack the hours in CDA content area 6. Completing all eight modules will result in completing 120 classroom hours in the eight CDA topic areas. Training outcomes will be measured through the use of multiple tools including but not limited to pre/post-tests, self-reporting on training evaluations, informal observation of classroom and group discussions and various homework activities.
