NAEYC Format for Position Statements

1. State topic

2. Pick a side

3. Provide evidence that supports your side (research, opinion) using at least 3 supporting pieces.

4. If problem, provide an alternative solution and why you believe it could work.

Sample Position Statement for ONE area (Created by Instructor): According to the NAEYC (2009), developmentally appropriate practices to assessment include creating a community of learners.  I agree with this area of focus:

· Each member of the community are valued (school personnel, students, families, and the community)

· Teachers must establish a classroom environment that is safe for learners (including physical and psychological safety)

Because I support ideas stated for creating a community of learners, I will create a classroom management system to ensure community members are valued and a classroom environment is structured that promotes physical/psychological safety. (Jaruszewicz, 2013 and ASCD, 2015)

Sample Position Statement from ONE area (From Instructor Guide): The school administration wants to implement a school uniform policy because so many students are dressing inappropriately for class. I am against the school implementing such a policy.

· School uniforms will take away student rights.

· School uniforms are expensive.

· One hundred kids were surveyed and 85% were against uniforms.

I understand the issue that high school kids are wearing inappropriate clothes to school. However, instead of implementing a formal uniform, a less drastic suggestion should be considered first. One solution could be to make the current dress code stricter.
