Content Review

| January 8, 2016
  • Respond to each item. Each response should be concise and between two and three paragraphs in length.
  • Use MS Word to write your responses, and submit your answers to all three questions in one Word document.
  • Copy and paste each question within the document, so that your Instructor can see which question you are responding to.
  1. As defined in your text, hunger is “a chronic shortage of necessary nutrients” (Robertson, p. 256) and malnutrition is a condition in which there is a shortage of macronutrients, micronutrients, or both. Review pages 256–258 in your text and summarize the main dangers that hunger and malnutrition pose to a child’s development. Identify three reasons, as given in the text, why children may suffer from malnutrition or hunger.

  2. The article “SKIPing Toward an Active Start: Promoting Physical Activity in Preschoolers” describes a number of strategies for encouraging physical activity in young children. Select either toddlers or preschoolers and describe at least three developmentally appropriate strategies that could help this particular age group become more physically active and fit. Propose ways that adults who work with young children can help them maintain good fitness habits.

  3. Of all the allergies from which children suffer, peanut allergies are among the most serious, causing 80% of deaths due to food hypersensitivity (Robertson, p. 276). Peanut allergies are also one of the most common allergies, affecting approximately 5% of children 0–3 years old. Review “Reality Check: Peanut Allergy” (pp. 357–358) in your text and summarize what adults working in early childhood settings need to know about this health threat. In what ways does a child with this allergy impact everyone in the same environment? Propose one way you might turn this situation into a positive learning opportunity for all children.

            As a professional in the field of early childhood, you must consider all possible strategies for preventing injuries to children.  The “ABCs of Childhood Injuries” is a conceptual tool described in your text (pp. 64–68), that can help you assess causal factors of injuries and assist you in taking steps to prevent them.  Use this tool to analyze an example of a real-life injury that has occurred to a child in an early childhood setting.  (If you do not know of a real-life example, imagine a hypothetical one).  Describe the accident in terms of its “accessories,” “behaviors,” and “conditions.”  What modifications in the conditions or behaviors could you apply to the situation in order to prevent this kind of injury from happening again?

CLASS: this is how the format should look for the paper.  You answer this question in two or three paragraphs.  My advice is to use this first paragraph to answer the first part of the question {Use this tool to analyze an example of a real-life injury that has occurred to a child in an early childhood setting.  (If you do not know of a real-life example, imagine a hypothetical one).  Describe the accident in terms of its “accessories,” “behaviors,” and “conditions”}.  Notice I am typing with two spaces in between my sentences, and using Times New Roman font, #12.  These are rules according to APA.  Please notice that I do not have too many spaces between paragraphs either.  You have to check this when double-spacing your paper, because sometimes it does not format correctly.  You can do that by using the arrows in the middle of Word.  It will say “remove this space.”  If it says that, then you need to click on it.  I did add the page numbers.  I showed you a YouTube on how to do the page numbers, along with the header in the email.

I would use the second paragraph to help you answer the second part of the question (What modifications in the conditions or behaviors could you apply to the situation in order to prevent this kind of injury from happening again?).  Make sure you answer all parts of the question.  In addition, here is how you do the citation for our book.  When you cite a book, it is like this: (Robertson, 2013).  You do not need to add the page number at the end.  You can use (Robertson, 2013), at the end of the sentence.  Also, please do not forget to put quotations around a direct quote from the book.  It is okay to use quotations from the book, but I would use them sparingly.  Good scholarly writing, is paraphrasing your writing, or using your own words.  If you paraphrase, you still have to put (Robertson, 2013), at the end.

Locate and read through your state’s licensing regulations on this page of the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education’s Web site: http://nrckids.org/STATES/states.htm.  Summarize your state’s regulations on three important safety issues, such as medical records of children, records required for caregivers, or sanitation guidelines.  (If you have a choice of regulations for different kinds of facilities, focus on the facility in which you would like to work).  In your view, are these regulations strict enough?  Are they too strict?  Explain your answer, citing specific examples to support your position.

I am trying to show you how the formatting always works for each content assignment.  Read this question carefully.  The way this question is written, it could be divided easily into three paragraphs.  The first paragraph could be the summary of your state’s regulations piece.  The second paragraph could be a discussion about whether your state’s regulations are strict enough or too strict?  The third paragraph could provide the examples that support your position.   I am only writing one paragraph, so you would need to add at least one more.  Remember, the directions say to write a minimum of two to three paragraphs per question.  You can also look at the rubrics to assist you in what, and how you need to format the Content Review below.

“Falls from playground equipment,” writes Robertson, “are the leading cause of injury in early childhood education environments” (2013, p. 134).  Review the SAFE concepts as described on pages 150–155 of your text, and summarize the components of a SAFE playground or outdoor play space.  Think of playgrounds in any early childhood environment with which you are familiar.  Identify at least two features of the playground area or equipment that are hazardous.  How would you use the SAFE concepts to improve these conditions?

This question needs at least two paragraphs.  The first one would be to identify two features of the playground area or equipment that are hazardous.  The second paragraph would be to answer, “How would you use the SAFE concepts to improve these conditions?”  Please make sure you remember that a full paragraph is five to seven sentences.  I am also attaching a sample reference page with a citation for a book, and two websites.  On the reference page, please notice where I use italicized font (the title), where I put periods and when I capitalize words.  The APA template I am attaching demonstrates this.  All types of references are different, so you must review the template, and the APA guide very closely.

In addition, please do not forget to add the rubrics at the end of the paper.  I am attaching it for you so you can cut and paste; however, you are really supposed to attach these yourselves.  The rubrics are in the announcements, and under the section called grading in your class.  Before you submit the assignments to me, remember to proof read with the spell check, and grammar button.  The last tip I have is to use Turnitin drafts for those of you who are experiencing high numbers on your report.  By using the Turnitin draft located under the “Academic Integrity” section of our course, will allow you to view your report prior to turning it in for an actual grade.  Then you can “fix” what the report says you are doing incorrectly.  I hope these tips help for your future writing.  Remember, I am here to help you be successful.  You may not always agree with my comments; however, I am here to help you become better and better writers, along with deeper, critical thinkers in the course material.
