Discover the purpose of the Responsive Early Education for Young Children and Families Experiencing Homelessness publication through reading and discussion
Explore the various definitions of homelessness
Discover the diversity of families experiencing homelessness and practice critical reflection
Identify specific teacher strategies in communication and classroom practice to support young children and families experiencing homelessness
