Question description

This assignment should be three-to five- pages, in addition to a separate title page and a separate reference page, using APA format.  Format your writing as follows:  MS Word, double-spaced, 12-point font, one-inch margins all around.

  • Create a profile of yourself as an educator. The profile will include your preferred teaching style, an in-depth look at your experiences as an educator (if you have not worked with children, you have most likely been an educator with your own children, family members, co-workers, church members, etc.) and how that informs your teaching style and your philosophy on how children grow and learn (this is not the same as your philosophy on family and community engagement but will overlap). Please base the theoretical perspective you developed in last week’s discussion, as well as your experiences.  You must cite one reference in your profile. Do this before you begin writing your philosophy statement and approach. If you have had to do some of this thinking, reflection and creation in another course, contact your instructor if you would like to re-use portions for this assignment.  
  • Create your philosophy and approach to family and community engagement.  Build your philosophy statement from the bulleted items you created for last week’s discussion.  Be sure to incorporate concepts we have addressed in the course discussions thus far, and also draw from your direct experience working with families, if you have them. Your philosophy statement and approach should align to a theoretical perspective. You must cite one reference in your philosophy and approach statement.
  • Identify three questions you want to find out about in the interview with the director or staff person in the early childhood program.  The questions should focus on some aspects of family and community engagement to help support or expand your philosophy statement.  If you are currently working with young children and their families, try to think of questions that relate directly to issues that have arisen for you. If you are not currently working with children and families, these questions can be ones you have curiosity about. 

Discuss the reasons why you chose these questions. You will be continuing with the pilot study in the next three assignments: you will collect the responses/data (Week Two), analyze the data (Week Four) and discuss your finding in relation to your philosophy of education (Week Five).
