initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Self-Image, Social Competence, and Self Efficacy
Chapter 9 of the textbook explores the principles behind the development of self-image, social competence, and self-efficacy in children. Early childhood educators and families have a crucial role in the positive development of these areas. For this discussion, please create a short article that is at 150 to 200 words long for your parent newsletter or a short two- to three-minute video for a parent presentation. Your article or video should explain to parents what self-image, social competence, and self-efficacy are, the process of development in children, how you will positively support children in the classroom, and ways parents can support this positive development at home. If you choose to create a video, please be sure the file is saved in a format that can be attached or linked in your discussion post for viewing.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. For this guided response, please imagine that you are the administrator of your classmates’ programs. Respond to at least two of your peers from a leadership perspective, telling them how you will support the programs that they described.
