Think about a child that you know. The child should be 5 years old, or younger. First you will create a developmental profile on this child by describing the child based on all domains of development. These will include: physical, cognitive, and social/emotional. Be sure to address the following:
How the child is part of typical development
How the child is as an individual
How culture plays a role in this child's development
After you have created a developmental profile of the child, identify two ways that you meet the developmental needs of this child. Be specific and give details about supporting this child.
we will be thinking further about our teaching practices. Choose one of the five guidelines for effective teaching, and discuss how you will or do include this in the learning environment you set up for children. The guidelines are:
Creating a caring community of learners
Teaching to enhance development and learning
Planning curriculum to achieve important goals
Assessing children's development and learning
Establishing reciprocal relationships with families
should include a specific plan for addressing the guideline with at least two examples.
