BACKGROUND: Now that we are looking at young children, preschool and elementary school becomes a big and important part of their “” (remember from chapter 1?)
Obviously, parents continue to be a very important part of children’s development. But children spend a growing amount of time with peers and educators in this period of life.
To prepare for this assignment, you. need to review(warmth, discipline, etc.), the various you read about (e.g. Montessori, child centered, teacher centered, etc.) AND the (emotional regulation, peer and play, and the resulting types of parenting (authoritative, etc.),
think about and describe from your schooling ( ) and assess it in terms of a) parenting types as reflected in your teacher’s behavior ( ), b) schooling type(s) you experienced as discussed in our text ( ), c) at least one key developmental accomplishment of this period ( ). ( thrown in for strong proofreading.)
DETAILS DETAILS! So paint a picture of a particular teacher in a particular class in a particular school in a particular time. And help me see that how you see it all now, looking back with these two chapters in your back pocket.
If I were doing this, I know I would go back to 2grade, when I left Chicago, Illinois, and moved to Athens, Greece. I would have a lot of fun thinking about how different my teachers and schools in Greece were for me, and how that compared to school experiences in America before and after, was then what I just left. Iassroooms I experienced would be sure to discuss a) teachers in terms of Baumrind, b) the more child centered vs. teacher centered classrooms I experienced, and c) how this impacted my self-confidence and attitudes as a student, among other things…there are a lot of individual scenarios in each of this settings I could focus in on.
So have a little fun!
