Ashford ECE 205 Week 5 Discussion Child Development Resource Review

Child Development Resource Review. [CLOs: 2, 3]. 1st Post Due by Day 3. By completing this discussion, you will be meeting Weekly Learning Outcomes 4 and 6.

As a professional in the field of child development, you must stay current with the latest research and practices.

Initial Post – For this discussion, visit the Ashford University Library to locate an article that was published within the last 10 years on an area of child development that you find interesting and meaningful to your professional career. Some examples might include:

  • Brain based research

  • School readiness

  • The role of technology on development

  • Diverse family structures impact on development

  • Access to health care

  • Nutrition and wellness

    After finding an appropriate scholarly resource, review and include the following in your discussion:

    • Summarize the article in your own words.

    • Explain how this article relates to other discussions or content you have learned in this course (ex: ages

      and stages, developmental milestones/domains/parenting styles).

    • Discuss how you might use this knowledge in your future professional role.

    • Be sure to provide an APA 6th edition citation within your discussion, so your peers can read your article.

      Guided Response – Please respond to at least two peers. In your responses, select two articles from your peers that you found particularly interesting and engaging and discuss why you were moved by this topic. How can you relate the information to content you have learned in this course? How can you apply the content of these articles to your own professional life?

      Though two replies is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you (including the instructor) before the last day of the learning week; this will further the conversation while also giving you opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences with this topic.
