Although, in the last 20 years, the early childhood occupation has enhanced standards and responsibility for the advancing the current early childhood educators. I desire to benefit from the field experience is more of “the hands on “method and resilient understanding about the responsibilities teachers have toward students within an inclusive classroom. Also be able to cultivate the right skills to assist needed for preschoolers with disabilities.
Fuller and Strath (2001) conducted a quantitative research study that examined local populations of early education organizations based on the 1990 household census data to report features of the early childhood workforce nationwide. Multiple economic and regulatory forces shaped the population of early education organizations that operated within states and local communities. The median center-based teacher was 34 years of age, reported having completed some college, and was married. The median family childcare home provider had a high school diploma. Fifteen percent of all preschool teachers in urban areas were African American and 8% were Latina. The researchers analyzed data from 1994 on basic indicators of the early education organizations within neighborhood conducted every four years that included all preschool and childcare organizations.

Hello, my name is Arpandeep Kaur. I am a student of Early Childhood Education which is a branch of education theory where hands-on hands experience are achieved and which relates to the teaching of young children up until the age of about eight.

“Teachers of English and literature have either submitted, or are expected to submit, along with teachers of the more "practical" disciplines, to the doctrine that the purpose of education is the mass production of producers and consumers” (Berry). Berry uses the word practical to describe the way in which we produce students as though they were massed produced. School systems today demonstrate specialization, and with that follows oversimplification. “In our society, which exists in an atmosphere of prepared, public language-language that is either written or being read illiteracy is both a personal and a public danger” (Berry). While schools relax their education standards and primarily focus on profitability, we become vulnerable to loss of literacy through
This is a key part in schools today because it’s enforcing a higher bar of achievement for teachers and students (Catapano, 2018). Implementing standards into a school system that are internationally benchmarked means all states and countries have a way of measuring their academic performance. They can use this also as a tool to compile scores and understand the weaknesses to improve students’ knowledge. This provides teachers with various ways to assess their students more frequently through observations and informal assessments to understand the student’s comprehension level of the lesson material. It will help the teachers to strive to improve her test scores by adapting lesson materials to the needs of each
No matter what you believe or what you think is the correct thing to do, it seems that both sides, the Chinese way of educating children and the Western way, have negative and positive effects. It seems that the definitive goal for all parents is to gain their children a great future, and perchance the predominant factor should not be how you do it, but why. Notwithstanding the fact that the author is not entirely objective, she argues well for her viewpoints and constantly makes the reader reflect on how to educate

What information did I know prior to reading information presented within the chapter? Prior to reading chapter one I can remember learning about PL 94-142, This is the education for all Handicapped Children Act, this law was put in place to order that all children with special needs receive service within the public schools. After reading chapter two one thing that I already knew was that everyone has a desire to know if there child is developing at a normal rate.

Social and physical environments in the home and the social environment in the classroom impact early childhood development. This paper discusses: the impact of the social environment in the home on early childhood development; the possible negative impact of the physical environment on a preschool child in a Guyanese home; and the impact of a positive social environment in the early childhood classroom.
The history of the achievement gaps is complex, and many educators believe that there is no single primary cause for its existence and persistence. The period of segregation in the United States is most influential factor that has shaped the racial gap in education. Tracing back to the history, the term “segregation” notably appears in the education settings is through the Brown vs. Board of Education court case in 1954. Since the period of slavery, ethnic minorities, especially Blacks, have been placed in a disadvantaged setting in term of educational opportunity. However, in Brown vs. Board of Education, the Supreme Court ruled that states cannot separate schools for blacks and white students, which required schools to desegregate and provide
In the story “everybodyEverybody´s somebody’s Somebody’s babyBaby” by Barbara Kingsolver, Kingsolver uses the United States to show us that in many places people do not care about children, and yet, they expect them to be great. Kingsolver has a four year year-old daughter, and she tells us how good well they treat her daughter in Spain.
As early childhood educators, we the teachers have differing philosophies and approaches to education of our own. There are many different types of early childhood programs. Each program is unique in its philosophies, methods, and program goals. Every one of us early childhood educators is unique in our own way, which makes each early childhood program experience different and special to everyone involved. 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.

Early childhood is an essential stage of life in terms of a child 's physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Growth of mental and physical abilities progress at an amazing rate and a very high proportion of learning takes place from birth to age six. It is a time when children particularly need high quality personal care and learning experiences. Approximately 60 to 70 percent of preschool-age children in the USA attend an early childhood program or child care program out of the home, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Children learn language skills by interacting with the immediate environment and training or simple structural changes can improve language skills of children (Bouchard & Gilles, 2011).
