COSP Classroom Approach:
A Two Tiered Approach


ith a COSP Classroom facilitator, groups of early care professionals engage in a professional learning series that includes reflective discussion around an eight-chapter video-based curriculum. This Tier 1 series provides a clear model of children's attachment needs and the importance of the teacher in responding to these needs. This professional learning environment supports teachers to move from behavioral approaches to seeing the ways attachment needs are communicated by behavior and misbehavior. After completion of Tier 1, coaching sessions are held with teachers working in the classroom setting. The COSP Classroom Coaching model follows an evidence-based Practice Based Coaching framework put forth by the Office of Head Start.
