I’m stuck on a Writing question and need an explanation.
For this benchmark assignment, you will create an early childhood education professional growth plan that outlines your goals for 3‐5 years after you complete this program. Complete the “Professional Growth Plan Template” to include a goal, plan/steps, and rationale for each of the following areas:
- Ongoing collaborative learning through professional development in the field of early childhood education (e.g., professional development opportunities and/or educational conferences in your school, district, or state)
- Ongoing learning through personal reflection (e.g., your teaching experiences, exposure to young children and families, a personal journal, meeting with a mentor teacher)
- Ongoing learning through advancement of education (e.g., master’s degree, national board certification, reading or gifted endorsements)
In each section, align your goals to a Georgia state requirement, professional/ethical requirements, and/or your own ongoing learning interests.
Additionally, in 250‐500 words, include a rationale why this growth plan will ultimately serve to maximize learning outcomes for young children.
