 In this week’s media segment, Janis  Keyser, Early Childhood Educator, explains how the “teaching to  strength” approach is affirming and motivating for children. Rather than  focusing on “fixing” areas of weakness, “teaching to strength”  emphasizes building on and shaping positive traits, instilling a  positive attitude to learning, and expanding children’s areas of  expertise. Through this approach, early childhood professionals become  keenly aware of the particular characteristics and preferences of the  children with whom they work.

In what ways does “teaching to strength” support any or all of the  four anti-bias education goals as described in Chapter 1 of the course  text? Be prepared to share at least two specific examples.
How might “teaching to strength” help contribute to creating an  affirming environment and enhancing the positive interactions you have  with children?
What professional and personal dispositions, strengths, and/or  experiences do you possess that might help you use the “teaching to  strength” approach effectively in your early childhood setting?
At least two pages!
