Piaget developed the theory that the best way to study children was in their natural environment. The aim of this assignment is to study children in their natural environment just as Piaget and gain first hand evidence of their developmental process. The procedure for this experiment is to document the actions observed and to use the observations as evidence for the child study. To gain an efficient amount of evidence the observation must consist of at least 20 hours but the hours must be spread out within a 2-4 month time span. The student is observed in the same setting, so he is comfortable enough to “act natural.” The first class I observed was Ms. Alison’s class which consisted of 12 boys and 2 girls, age 4. Ms. Alison is a new inexperienced teacher. The second class I observed was Ms. Corney’s class which consisted of 9 girls and 8 boys, age 5. Ms. Alison is an experienced teacher, of whom has been teaching for 5+ years. During the instructed time in each class, observation will be taken of the students peer to peer communication, academic ability during curriculum activities and each child’s individual progress within their own development.
The student I observed is an African American/Hispanic, male age 5. He can understand Spanish and is learning English. For the sake of this experiment I will refer to the student as “Michael.” He has black hair and dark brown eyes. Michael is high energized, happy boy whom enjoys playing with toy cars. He is learning to communication with his peers as his English is progressing. He became the focus of this child study because I have observed his behavior progression more so than others. The focus on one student allows for a more thorough observation, compared to observing a group of students. His motor skills have fully developed and he does not display any difficulty completing physical task within his range.…...

Differential parental investments in education and children under kinship care in the Philippines Joseph J. Capunoa, and Xylee Javierb a,b School of Economics, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City 1101 Philippines Abstract While education is universally held to enhance a child human development, policies must still contend with parental biases. Here, we investigate if school attendance of young household members aged 6-12 years old varies with their kinship ties to the household heads in the Philippines. Applying probit regression techniques on a dataset culled from the five rounds of the Annual Poverty Indicators Survey, we find that the probability of attending school of the head's own child is about 2.9-percentage points greater that that other relatives in the same age group, controlling for income and other factors. However, there are no differences in the likelihood of school attendance......

...Maloy Chapter 11 Discussion Question #5 To what extent would you be willing to contact parents of low- achieving students when you become a teacher? Do you think this should be part of the classroom teacher’s responsibilities? As a teacher it will be my job to create an equal learning experience to every child in my classroom. I will need to make modifications and exceptions for students who preform under his or her peers. These modifications may include extra time for assignments, extra help in specific subjects either in class or after class or even modifying the assignments to a level in which they understand. If and when I see that these modifications are not helping the student progress, I will then know it problem outside the classroom that is causing this child to struggle. I believe that it is my responsibility to report to higher authorities that a child is consistently doing poorly. For example, a principal should be notified. At this point it is also important to have a meeting with the child’s parents to inform them of their child’s problem. This meeting will allow the principal and myself to talk to the parents about the reasons why a child is doing poorly. We can determine if there is a problem going on in the home, in the classroom or if the problem originates from the lack of parental support. This information can be used to determine ways to help this student in the classroom and at home. It does not stop here. Throughout the school year I...

...Angel Green DRE 098 11/20/14 Final, Draft Disciplining a child these days and time can be hard on a parent. Children need to know how to function at home, school and in public places. Every parent wants their children to be happy, respectful, respected by others, and able to find their place in the world as well-behaved adults. Therefore, there are positive and negative methods of discipline a child, are quite different and so are the results. Research has shown that there are numerous methods of disciplining a child in a positive way. One of the most effected ways are removing of privileges. When a child is asked to clean his room and don’t, take his toys for an hour. For and older child if he is told to be home at a certain time and he is late, take his car for the day. Grounding a child and taken activities from a child will make the child understand that rules has to be followed. Acknowledging good behavior is the best way to encourage your child to continue it. In other words, “Catch him being good.” Compliment your child when he shows the behavior you’ve been seeking. Developing skills for positive discipline takes a lot of practice and a lot of time. On the other hand, negative disciplinary methods are often used as well. In fact, many parents believe that spanking a child is necessary for discipline the child. In the US, when a survey was conducted of 94 percent parents with toddlers acknowledged that they had used some form of corporal...

Social work is a value-based profession, and one of the core capabilities, at all career levels, is recognising, and where appropriate addressing, personal and professional values and prejudices. It is not uncommon, for the law to be seen as a critical component in developing provision and strengthening professional practice. According to the College of Social Work, in social work professional practice we work with some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised individuals, families and communities, often at the most difficult points in their lives. When parents do need help, they still want to be in control and indeed in the vast majority of families they should be it is important that a balance between intervention and assistance is maintained. (2009 NIRFPS) Since the late 1980’s there has been an increasing awareness of the impact of oppression and discrimination on clients and communities (Thompson, 2001). In 1997 Thompsons Theory called the PCS model recognises oppression and discrimination from a Personal, Cultural and Structural perspective. In the Code of Ethics of Social Work it is stated, respect for human rights, commitment to promoting social justice and professional integrity are at the core of social work practice throughout the world, but in actual practice of implementing the law there is a stark......
