May 31, 2019 Off All,
The purpose of this assignment is for you to reflect on your new understandings about communities, families and children’s learning, health and well-being, and how this will influence your future practice. You do not have to answer every prompt question below, rather focus on what has been most important to you. To prepare for this assignment: – Discuss the importance of group work and teamwork as teacher – Reflect on the research you have read and the interactions you have had with others over the semester – how do you think it will influence your practices as a teacher (be specific here – Reflect on the way research is/is not influencing policy and practice in schools and early childhood education and care settings; – Reflect on the relevance of early intervention and prevention to current early childhood practice and the interrelationship between practice and research. Working as part of a group was a major part of this unit. So …if you think about your experience working collaboratively… – What are your impressions of the challenges and benefits of working in collaboration? – How might this influence the educational leader you will be one day? – Review the research, what does it say about the importance of collaboration for effective program delivery. Link this to what you might do to ensure you deliver effective services for children and families?
