MAECEL Virtual Toolbox – Tool #2 Practical Application of My Graduate Program
An important overarching theme of the content for this week of class has been what it takes to become an early childhood professional. In your reading and discussion on professional standards you had to defend standard 6d: Integrating knowledgeable, reflective, and critical perspectives on early education (NAEYC, 2011). In your discussion on ethics in early childhood education you acknowledged the importance of engaging in an ongoing process of self-reflection (Bredekamp, 2017, figure 16.3). As you can see, an important aspect of becoming a professional is reflection.
In the article, Fostering Reflection (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., Danielson (2009) states that Great teachers know when to make decisions quickly and when to step back and reflect (para. 1). As part of your reflection as both an educator and a student, it is important that you understand how the learning you are engaged in right now will not only benefit your future career, but has important practical application. The purpose of this assignment is to guide you in this reflection process in the hopes that as you progress through your program you will continue to reflect on what you learn in each course.
For this assignment you will create a presentation for your future self. This presentation should be created as a 5-6 slide power point or Google Slides presentation.
Your presentation audience is your future self upon completion of your program capstone course. Your presentation must include the following:
