Question Description

Write a two- to three-page paper in which you address one of the following scenarios:

  1. You are an elementary school principal who is committed to ensuring that students experience a developmentally appropriate environment. You are tasked with introducing a new state-mandated, textbook-based curriculum to your Kindergarten teachers. How do you recommend they integrate this while maintaining a DAP environment? Is there a way to make this Kindergarten textbook developmentally appropriate? (Think scaffolding here.) Use the Kindergarten standards for reading from your state in your response and discuss the guidelines for developmentally appropriate practice from the required text.
  2. You are a parent who is concerned about the new state-mandated, textbook-based curriculum for Kindergarten, and you are writing a letter to the school board in protest of this new policy. In your letter, define DAP, describe the benefits of DAP, and explain why you feel this curriculum may be inappropriate. List potential negative effects of this curriculum and how it is developmentally inappropriate to literacy development.  Suggest an alternative approach to developing literacy skills.
The paper should be two to three pages in addition to the title page and the reference page. Use at least one reference in addition to your text. Your paper should also be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
