Enlisting and Providing Support by Kimberly Allison

For my advocate plan, I am seeking other Early Childhood Teachers to support having more literacy in the classroom.  I will seek them out and show them that having more support in the classroom will give more support with their teacher and it might free them up on some things.  I will show them that students need all the support they can get to help them grow.  I  want to ask you, classmates, how should I approach other teachers with my plan? And, how should present this plan to others outside the school about my advocacy plan?  I have found out that most people that I talk to about my advocacy plan, they want visuals about how my advocacy plan will work for students.  They want to see actual footage of my advocacy is action.  I just do not know how to show them this if it is my plan to make it happen.  Should I film students with other people reading them and maybe see how the students act when they are with them?  I would appreciate if you could give me your feedback so I can make this plan come to play,

Advocacy Role

“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
― Elie Wiesel

The thing that excites me most about my advocacy plan is knowing that children might get a chance to engage with people who can be a life long partner in their lives. Being a key part of their literacy will help them throughout a lifetime.

The challenges that I feel that will encounter with the advocacy efforts that I have targeted is that they will not show up for the students when they expected to and that they will discontinue with the literacy and this will be a let down to me and the students.

I believe that the most effective that I could do in helping me to overcome any challenging emotions about presenting and implementing my Advocacy Action Plan will be for me to present it to friends and family first.  When I present it to them, I will ask for them to critique me and give me feedback; whether good or bad.

I feel that I can encourage others in their advocacy efforts by simply showing them how my plan is working out and remind them why they should continue and do their best with their plan.  Others can encourage me by simply being honest with me and let me know if I am doing enough or not enough.  I want others to know my passion for what I am doing and maybe join in with me.  When other join in what I am doing then that would very encouraging to and for me.
