Enrolling in a CDA program is an important step in your professional development. To support you in this journey, we’ve partnered with Teachstone to offer the CDA with CLASS® and CDA Renewal with CLASS® - comprehensive programs that will prepare you to obtain or renew the CDA credential.
The Only CDA with CLASS®
These programs build CLASS understanding and skills for improved interactions between teachers and children. CLASS stands for Classroom Assessment Scoring System. It is a research-based method of measuring, evaluating and improving teacher-child interactions. Used in 23 states’ Quality Rating Improvement Systems, CLASS is the most widely-used system for assessing and improving teaching quality.
The Tools You Need to Prepare for the CDA
In the CDA with CLASS programs, you’ll find authentic classroom videos to demonstrate best practices that you can immediately apply in your own classroom. We include the Competency Standards book (a $25 value), needed to prepare and apply for your CDA. You’ll also receive access to our CLASS Learning Community where you can ask questions and benefit from peer-to-peer discussions.
