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.
From the moment they are born, children are precious and deserve to be treated with uttermost care. They are vulnerable and as they grow, they spend a lot of time discovering and learning new stuff. Parents should be careful because during this period, what the child learns, sticks for the rest of their life. It is said that the environment has a way of shaping the life of children. We don't want our children to grow up with bad influence and that's why we should as parents invest in bringing up our children in an environment that bring out the best in them.
Though Fred Wilson specializes in creating works of art that represent his perception of American history and American society as a whole, Wilson’s Drip Drop Plop came into creation as a representation, primarily, of Americas repetitive racial history against African Americans. When Fred Wilson was asked to be the American representative at the Venice Biennale, Wilson thought that it would be best to incorporate glass unto his work, something that Venice is well familiarized with, taking in mind that it is a city generally known for its glass manufacturing. The medium which Fred Wilson chose consisted of black glass shaped in the form of droplets and puddles. He chose to work particularly with black glass for his display as a representation
People love serenity (Basic). People love customisable items. People love gardens (Parallel). People around the world keep gardens. Whether their gardens provide them with food, beauty, or a place to hold parties, people keep gardens for many reasons. Japanese gardens are a large part of their culture and represent different aspects of the person who tends it. The beauty of a garden only reflects the diligence of its’ caretaker. In Gail Tsukiyama’s novel The Samurai’s Garden several of her characters tend their own Japanese-style gardens. Throughout her novel, she reveals the importance of the gardens present, and how they represent their caretakers inner selves.

During my time at placement I was given the role of a Nursery Assistant; My duties were to plan and prepare activities for children, read stories, nappy change them, observe and make notes for use in their reports. I was also a key worker for one child, I had to monitor their progress and share information about their development with their parents and carers. The setting was a warm and welcoming environment, I found that all of the staff were very friendly and reassuring. The placement lasted for four weeks and I worked from Monday to Friday from 8:30AM to 5:30PM. On my first day I arrived at 10AM for my induction and was introduced by the manager of the setting to the other members of staff.
In the novel Candide written by Voltaire, one of the main motifs is the garden. It has been mentioned multiple times throughout the book. The first garden was the Castle of baron Thunder-Ten- Tronckh, there is the garden of Eldorado, and Candide's final garden. As a main motif, the garden symbolizes people's lives and how they must nurture them to have a good outcome. The garden is used cleverly throughout the novel to convey an optimistic moral about the importance of gardens' cultivation that determines the life and fate of the characters. It underscores that the only worthwhile thing for people to do is to cultivate their gardens. While cultivating gardens are an emblem of hero’s prospect and fortune, neglected ones lead to his misery. Voltaire provides in Candide several types of gardens. A garden that someone can be kicked out of it like what happened to Candide in baron Thunder-ten- tronckh, another garden that someone can foolishly leave as Candide did Eldorado, and a final well taken care of garden that makes human being close to happiness.
Skip Hollandsworth’s “Toddlers in Tiaras” argues the negative effects of participating in beauty pageants for young girls. Hollandsworth supported his argument through the use of the following techniques: narratives, testimonies, logical reasoning, appeals to emotion, facts, and an objective tone that attempts to give him credibility. These techniques are used to help persuade his audience of the exploitation of young girls in beauty pageants and the negative effects that pageants will have on their lives.
Throughout my time at Suffolk Community College, I have done a lot of observations and many hours of student teaching between the ages 4-7 years old. So, walking into an infant classroom for an observation was a first-time thing for me.
The environment has much improved offering children a wide variety of learning experiences that are allowing the children to explore paint water and sand and cosy areas for relaxation that also have a wide variety of books for the children to look at and mark making resources. Staff are continuing to develop their planning to ensure it is responsive and relevant.
“Biophilic design is the deliberate attempt to translate an understanding of biophilia into the design of the built environment” (Kellert, 2008). It involves building and landscape design that enhance human well-being by fostering positive connections between people and natural environment. It is an innovative design approach that aims to maintain, enhance and restore the benefits of experiencing nature in the built environment. It starts by observing the effect of the mutual interaction between the natural and the built environment. The learned knowledge is then reflected onto the design and construction of the built environment. Utilizing that knowledge in architectural and urban design can guide architecture towards a more humane experience.
On today I observed Ms. Douglas’ kindergarten art class. The room was colorful and filled with various resources such as the elements of art, some key concepts to becoming an artist, and the rules. On the whiteboard were the words I CAN… with the objectives of the day/week listed for each grade level. The display which caught my attention the most was the display board on the side of the room labeled Art Behavior Race. It was a reward system that Ms. Douglas used for all of her class to earn prizes based on their class behavior. There were various prizes listed such as, a free day, candy bags, and the final prize was a pizza party whenever the class reached the end of the race. The room was set up with students seated in groups according to
Uniqueness of the château Vaux-le-Vicomte lies in the fact that its style and beauty had inspired the creation of the much more famous Versailles, the favourite residence of Louis XIV, the Sun King. Unlike Versailles, however, Vaux-le-Vicomte’s turbulent history reveals a great deal of treachery and misfortune brought to its owners and, especially, its creator. In its case, the statement that “great beauty comes only with the great price” couldn’t be truer.
In Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, appearances prove to be deceptive veneers that disguise the reality of situations and characters. Ibsen’s play is set in 19th century Norway, when women’s rights were restricted and social appearance such as financial success and middle class respectability were more important than equality and true identity. Ibsen also uses realism and naturalism, portraying the Helmer’s Marriage through authentic relationships, which are relatable to the audience. In A Doll’s House, Nora represents 19th century women entrapped by society to fulfill wifely and motherly obligations, unable to articulate or express their own feelings and desires. Initially, Nora appears to be a dependent, naïve girl, yet as the play unfolds, we see her as strong, independent woman, willing to make sacrifices for those who she cares about as well as herself. Henrik Ibsen uses symbolism in order to portray Nora’s sovereignty from the strict social guidelines of morality and appearances in 19th century Norway.
When a comparison is made to the hollyhock house, a difference in architectural design, materials and construction is evident. The Hollyhocks is an indication that Wright had started adopting a new architectural language (Friedman, 1994). This can be seen in the heavy and block like forms, smooth stucco surfaces, stylized geometry, and U-shaped garden courtyard (Friedman, 1994). A look at the plan shows Wrights plan to achieve thematic unity in the final building (Levine, 1996).
