Developmental Checklist Observation Summary
EDU 119-OW

My observation data was collected on a 2 day observation of a young boy, by the name of Jade. This child is located in a class of 16 children, at a preschool in Rocky Point, NC. His birthday is 11/21/09, and at this present time of observation he is 4 years old. After several days of observation and according to the 4-5 year old developmental checklist, John is well above his age level in development.
On day 1 of observation after arriving from breakfast, John washed his hands. After washing his hands he sat down on the carpet to wait for his teachers to join the carpet. The teacher read The Three Little Pigs. After the story, the teacher showed the children a short clip on you tube of the story, then asked the students to draw a picture of the story they had heard. John drew a picture of three pigs and 3 houses and wrote his name at the bottom. He then proceeded to retell me the story about the pigs and the wolf leaving out minor details. In retelling the story John covered some of the Language Milestones and some hand and finger skills while drawing the picture. According to the Language Milestones John was able to recall all parts of the story, not just some. He was able to speak sentences of more than 5 words, and he was able to tell a long story. By writing his name John showed hand and finger skills. He was able to print all the letters in his name.
John is a very easy going child that got along well with all the students in his class. At carpet time, John and the other children did the song Head, Shoulder, Knees and Toes. This covered the social milestone. He followed rules very easily. He showed independence by going to the bathroom on his own, without having to ask. He came out of the bathroom and washed his hands without having to be asked. This showed me that John was…...

This article contains information on how parent involvement can foster positive transitions from “early childhood settings to elementary school for children with challenging behaviors and/or those at risk for more serious emotional/behavioral disorders” (Malsch, Green, & Kothari, pg. 47). The authors give readers suggestions on how parents and educators can communicate and work together to ensure a healthy transition to kindergarten. This article would be interesting to those involved in education, because the “transition to kindergarten sets the stage for future academic success as well as for children and families’ relationships with the educational system” (Malsch, Green, & Kothari, pg. 47).

Annotated Reference List

...Annotated Reference List Karen McGee Grand Canyon University: UNV 501 May 29, 2013 The article Preparing Teachers for Special Education in the United States: A Reflection was interesting because it told the history of Special Education. It talked about how Special Education teachers should stand up for the kids in their class and do everything they could to help their students succeed. It discussed the high turnover rate among Special Education teachers and stated that support from principals, administrators, and even legislators are extremely important and much needed by Special Education teachers. The article was scholarly because it was written and researched by five professors in the Special Education Unit from the University of Nigeria. The second article Using Tablet Computers as Instructional Tools to Increase Task Completion by Students with Autism struck me because I am currently using an IPAD to do math and literacy with my Pre-K students. I wanted to see the findings in their case study to see if it was good or not for our students. I found that it is beneficial but the study showed mixed reviews. The study was done in a class of 7 in Maryland over a 4 week period. This article is considered scholarly because it was written by 3 women, all of whom are educators or directors of Special Education, which work at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The last article was The relationship......

The author of this peer reviewed article, an expert in the field based on his education, title and position, discusses not only the truth about healthcare and its revenue and spending, but brings to light a new outside-of-the-box idea for reducing waste. As a future nurse and healthcare administrator, I found this article intriguing and unique. Even though this article grew out of a turnaround for one healthcare system, others nationwide would be wise to adopt and follow its discoveries. First, Dr. Kaplan and his board identified their current management procedures benefited themselves, employees, vendors, rather than their patients. To resolve this, his board adopted the production and management methods of Toyota, the leading carmaker, in identifying their target consumer, their patients, and ways to identify, reduce if not eliminate waste. Following in Taiichi Ohno’s footsteps, the father of the Toyota production method, Dr. Kaplan and his board focused on reducing and...

"It's Our Best Choice Right Now": Exploring How Charter School Parents Choose. Education Policy Analysis Archives, 21(81), 1-19. In this journal article, Research Associate at the Research Alliance for New York City Schools, Dr. Adriana Villavicencio, discusses the reasons why parents choose charter schools instead of the public school options available to them within the districts where they live. The author states that most people believe that charter schools are being chosen more because “quality drives consumer choice” (Villavicencio 2013). After interviewing parents who enrolled students in two different charter schools, Villavicencio discovers that parents do not necessarily make choices about school selection based upon school performance or quality, but on a variety of different influences such as socioeconomic status, school location, and education level of the parent.

...work. The last source that I feel like will contribute to my paper is the child specialist article. My whole paper revolves around child welfare specialist and child abuse and neglect. So I feel like this article is very helpful because it lets you know exactly what the role of child welfare specialist is. Because of the ever growing numbers of children with learning disabilities, a new idea, one of a “child specialist” is presented. According to Sapir (1984) the role of the “child specialist” is clear and the ethics and philosophy supporting this method are deliberated. The importance of this new role originates from the many socio-economic forces in our society which are counter-productive to children’s best welfares. 4 Reference Johnson, C.F. (2004).

In this article I begin to remedy this oversight about the past, and I suggest how it can be beneficial in the present. Using both published and unpublished primary sources, I argue that the business ethics field emerged in the early twentieth century, against the backdrop of the establishment of business schools in major universities.
