Social justice and diversity advocacy are subjects that have proven to be sensitive over the years in most nations globally. A lot of movements have existed to fight for these two issues. Consequently, the education sector has provided units that enhance one’s understanding on the concept. Particularly, the EDU310 course has been significant in helping comprehend Social justice. I consider it the gateway to my comprehension of these educational theories.
These issues have increased our attention in understanding the development of race, ethnicity and culture. In addition, immigrants continue to shape our understanding on diversity by examining the acculturation to society and the diverse views that influences their families. Furthermore, the No Child Left behind Act influences the child development field by allowing states to develop standards that children must master at a specific age.

We help to provide young students the foundation for their educational futures. In this paper, I will focus on comparing and contrasting two programs that stood out to me, the Emergent Curriculum and the Creative Curriculum. When you examine early childhood programs, you will find that there are many similarities and differences across the board, making each experience something a bit different and exciting in its own way. Curriculums Emergent Curriculum Emergent curriculum emerges out of the interests and experiences children have in their daily lives. Emergent curriculum is a great way you can plan a

On this statement, the multicultural education is very important in our country for us to be able to provide the educational equity and improve positive socialization behaviors to all international students who have different cultures. A lot of scholars have given definitions to the concept of multicultural education. For instance, Banks (1988) treated multicultural education as a kind of reflection on ideas for the purpose of enabling all students from different cultures and different ethnic group backgrounds to have access to equal educational opportunities and the same learning treatment from school and teachers. Multicultural education is a process of comprehensive school reform and basic education for all students. It challenges and rejects discrimination in schools and society.

Important social occurrences help to shape a specific generation and how it thinks and behaves (Dittmann, 2007). Currently, work environments and most effective leadership styles require leaders and subordinates from these various generations to work closer and be more connected than ever before (Carucci &Epperson, 2011). Digital immigrants (veterans, babyboomers, and generation xers) across the board in various fields comprehend that their leadership should be based on legacy.
Introduction Over the past year, I have learned a lot of valuable lessons in the VIC151 course. Not only did the course challenge me to question my previous beliefs on education, it also provided me the opportunity to expand my understanding of a number of interesting topics such as social justice education, mindfulness, holistic education, progressive education, and multicultural education. The following portfolio is an amalgamation of the various items I believe represent my experience in the VIC151 course. Philosophy of Teaching Critical Pedagogy
Teaching Strategies for Students with Severe Disabilities Teachers are regarded as second parents when students are in school. As such, they do not only have a secondary authority over these children but they are also given the responsibility of making sure that students will become globally competent through the quality education they provide. Several teaching strategies and methods are used in order to ensure that students are able not just to comprehend but also retain the lessons they are taught in school. However, educating students nowadays also include those who are severely disabled. Like other normal students, the disabled ones should not be deprived of education too.
We can all agree that majority our lives have been committed to school, and some may say it had been terrible for them. Waking up early before the sun rises, seeing random people that may cause problems just because of their social status, or having strict teachers that have no care for their students who are unable to understand lessons and enforcing them with the threat of an F. But for others some would say it was an okay experience, they did not mind the time school started, got along with others and were average students who did well. However, everyone has questioned their education, which by how would they possibly ever use it when it comes to the outside world in which school has no control of. Since the time when our own parents went
This is important because if we ignore a child’s culture, we are showing them that their sense of self, their sense of being, is not important. A child’s culture, the values and beliefs that they learn at home and from their families, shape who they are as individuals, and who they will become as they continue to positively develop their own sense of identity. Without having a strong sense of their own identity, a child will struggle to feel a sense of belonging. If we ignore a child’s culture, or don’t bother to take the time to appreciate and include their culture in our daily teachings and communications, how can we expect children to achieve the first learning outcome in the ELYF, Children have a strong sense of identity.
Response to Lewisetta In practice, educators use many terms or labels to discuss children and families who live in poverty. Gloria Rodriguez and James Fabionar (2010) assert that the many terms we use should serve "as a reminder of how often we are called on in education to talk about -- but not necessarily to" -- our students and their families who live with low incomes (p. 64). As educators, we must be sensitive to the effects of poverty on our students' state of mind and ensure that we separate their developing sense of self from their living conditions. As a starting point, we must be extremely careful how we talk about children who live in poverty.
My annotated bibliography consists of 4 sources related to the Child Development major. Child development degree programs appeal to students who wish to pursue careers that make a difference in the lives of children. Students learn everything about children's physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth from infancy until adolescence, and how they develop within their surrounding social contexts. Students gain a clear understanding of social and behavioral sciences, the theories, major research findings, and research methods fundamental to the field of child development.
Many people don't know when working in child care one thing should be understood throughout, each child is different, sure they all follow the same milestones and stages but no amount of books and research can one hundred percent make us understand children, or can it? Early Childhood Education covers the period between birth to 9 years of age. During this time growth is very rapid growth, the children develop their cognitive, language, social, emotional, problem-solving and motor skills. So the question here is do Developmental Milestones and Stages apply exactly to children and how do teachers apply all of these studies to Early Child Care classrooms?
