Course Description

Chinese American children and adolescents are usually acculturated to mainstream American culture faster than their immigrant parents. Such generational acculturation differences are stressful for both children and parents. This workshop will explain the factors related to parent-child cultural dissonance among Chinese immigrant families and protective factors for reducing the negative impact of cultural dissonance on child and youth development. The workshop will also suggest practices to childcare providers for helping Chinese immigrant families develop positive parent-child relationships and prevent severe cultural dissonance after the children entering teenage years.
研究顯示幼兒若是在早期能有良好的自我控制,他們將會有較好的學業成績及情緒發展。本講座將探討幼兒的心理健康和知識發展。同時將介紹如何評估幼兒的心理健康。請加入我們一起來探索中國幼兒心理發展。華裔移民家庭中的兒童与青少年通常比他們的父母更快地融入并適應美國主流文化。兩代間在文化適應上的差異對孩子和父母都會造成緊張和壓力。這個工作坊將解釋華裔移民家庭親子文化摩擦的成因,以及哪些因素能夠減少這些文化摩擦對兒童与青少年成長的負面影響。我們還會爲兒童看顧機構提供一些具體的建議。

Course Description

Many media investigated Asian parents’ parenting strategies and wondered the secrets of Asian children's excellent academic performance. However, little was discussed in regard to Asian children’s psychological needs and mental health.
This workshop intends to educate Asian parents, teachers, and educators on Asia children’s development, and psychological needs. Common questions and issues for Asian children’s mental health needs will be discussed, and culturally appropriate strategies will be provided.
由於虎媽蔡美兒的教養方式在美國掀起廣泛討論,美國媒體紛紛探討亞裔族群父母的敘養方式。絕大部分的討論著重於亜裔青少年優秀的成績表現,極少部分的討論是著重於亞裔靑少年的心理需要。研究䫟示亜裔女姓的自殺律是最高的,同時亞裔孩童及靑少年也遭受普遍的心理疾病或症狀。亞裔父母往往不了解童青少年的需要而一味顉壓或忽略孩童的需要,等到悲劇發生時,通常是為時以晚。本講座將敎育亞裔父母老師關於孩童在同年齡層的心理需要,一些常見的問顁,以及因應之道。

Course Description

Young children are naturally curious about the world. They observe, explore, investigate, create, invent, wonder, and question. Indeed, young children have been interacting with the world since birth, and bring personal knowledge of the natural world to school with them. TK and early childhood teachers capitalize on these early experiences and provide sustained and varied opportunities for young learners to acquire knowledge, skills, and dispositions that establish the foundation for life-long learning.

The Preschool Learning Foundations and the CCSS, NGSS, and CA Content Standards are the guiding documents that help TK teachers determine what to teach in the TK classroom. Understanding the continuum of learning, which is guided by the foundations and standards, lays a foundation for effective early learning programs and classrooms.

In this session, the presenters will discuss the critical importance of engaging young children in scientific exploration, drawing from the literature on development and the research on learning in science. Participants will engage with high-quality instructional materials that the presenters (university faculty and experts in early childhood) developed for pre-service and in-service settings. Participants will analyze the alignment between the Preschool Learning Foundations and the NGSS Kindergarten Standards, explore published science experiences and lessons appropriate for young learners, and engage with other early childhood educators in the room.

The interconnectedness of learning is a central tenant of developmentally appropriateness for learners in transitional kindergarten and early childhood. Therefore, as participants examine ways to foster understanding of important science concepts and practices, they will also consider natural ways to promote language and literacy within their science instruction. Young learners who engage in inquiry-science generate and investigate questions, and express their ideas through written and oral communication. They use their emerging literacy skills to record observations, to comprehend texts read aloud, and to share their experiences and knowledge with others. The relationship between the language arts and content learning is apparent throughout the Kindergarten Standards and the Preschool Learning Foundations. These concepts will be explored during the session.
