The State of Early Childhood Assessment Professional Development in MinnesotaMinnesota Framework for Universal Multicultural Instruction: Meeting the Needs of All Learners

This framework is intended to support professional development that embeds inclusive multicultural practice. The framework offers key principles, reflective questions and examples of training strategies in four foundational areas:  How we learn/how we teach; what we learn/what we teach; how we demonstrate learning/how we assess learning; and, how we access support for learning/how do we support learning. Writers and trainers can use the framework to identify and refine inclusive multicultural elements they already use as well as increase efforts to include perspectives, background, and expertise of both instructor and learner. CEED authored this work with guidance and funding from the Minnesota Department of Human Services Child Development Services for particular application to the development and delivery of non-credit based training for child care.
