You will compose CBK statements as per the assigned topics on the syllabus. Your statements will detail your position on each core competency area (page 1) for early childhood educators.

For each competency you choose, discuss one how you will apply the competency in your classroom, and 2. What additional training or education would you like/need to feel competent in the competency.
