ECE 214 week 5 Assignment

  

Health, Nutrition, and Wellness Presentation
 

As a teacher, you have the opportunity to share the knowledge you have gained in this course with your colleagues to support a collaborative approach to shared health, nutrition, and safety goals. For your Final Project, you will create a presentation for other educators in your center that is focused on the development of a program valuing health, nutrition, and safety.
 

For this presentation, imagine you are part of a team of teachers at an early childcare setting working toward accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). As part of this lengthy process, you have been tasked with the creation of a professional development training for teachers focused on enhancing effective health, nutrition, and safety practices at your center. Use the knowledge you have gained in this course, as well as practical application and research to support your presentation.
 

You can be creative for this project, but you must include the following:

  1. Introduction that states the      purpose of the presentation 
  2. Summary of what will be covered      in the presentation
  3. Health (five to six      slides/pages)  
    1. Explain what this component       includes in the early childhood classroom.  
    2. Describe two to three       strategies to support health and wellness in the classroom.  
    3. Identify and describe at least       two resources that teachers can utilize in their planning and       implementation. These can be text or web-based resources. 
    4. Create a family activity or       newsletter that you can send home to support family engagement in       fostering children’s overall health and wellness.  
    5. Discuss one obstacle that       teachers may encounter and a plan for how to deal with the challenge.

  6. Closing You have two options      for your Final Project.  You many either submit an 18- to 22-slide      PowerPoint presentation (not including a title and reference slide) or you      may choose to create a Prezi. You are able to use the free version of Prezi to create your presentation. Be creative in your      delivery. Include visuals, audio, and video if you choose, but be thorough      in your content. Your presentation must utilize at least eight scholarly      sources, in addition to the course textbook. Be sure to address the      required topics with critical thought, elaboration, and college-level      writing. The PowerPoint or Prezi presentation must be formatted according      to APA style, and it must include a title slide, reference slide, and      citations where appropriate.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
