Discuss Assessment & Intervention During Early Childhood

In Week One of this course, you were asked to find a child to observe. Using the plan that you created in the second discussion forum this week, you will observe the child using the requirements below and summarize your observation. This can be done in one sitting, or it can be done in two since you will be conducting two different observations. Two is preferable for accuracy of assessment.

For the observation, you will need to:

  • Be sure you have the permission of the child’s parent or guardian.
  • Exclude any identifying information for this child (e.g., last name).
  • Follow the guidelines for minimizing bias shared in section 4.1 of the course textbook.
  • Familiarize yourself with sections I-1.6 – I-1.11 of the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct regarding assessments.
  • Be sure you have the appropriate materials ready:
    • You will need either a Running Record Form or an Anecdotal Record Form, whichever you choose. For this form, you will choose one developmental domain to observe (e.g., cognitive, physical, motor, or language).
    • You will need either a Time Sampling Form or an Event Sampling Form, whichever you choose. For this form, you will choose one developmental domain to observe (e.g., cognitive, physical, motor, or language).
    • Example: Assessing “Bobby,” I would first observe his motor development using an Anecdotal Record Form. In a different sitting, I would observe his cognitive development using an Event Sampling Form.

For the assignment, you will need to include:

Next Steps: Review and Submit the Assignment


Why do disagreements often lead to fights rather than opportunities?

In preparing for this discussion, you took part in an interactive scenario called “The Graduate.” In the scenario, you got to experience different people presenting different arguments (some of which you may not have liked). We have learned a lot in this course about the meaning of an argument and what constitutes a good argument. This discussion allows us to discuss more positive things that we can learn from “arguing” in the right way.

Prepare: To prepare for this discussion, watch the following video from Daniel H. Cohen [Link here to http://www.ted.com/talks/daniel_h_cohen_for_argument_s_sake.html] and review section 9.4 of Chapter 9 called “Confronting Disagreement by Seeking Truth.”  Take a look as well at the required resources from this week and make sure that you have completed “The Graduate” interactive scenario.

Reflect: Think about experiences you have had that involved conflicts with others. What was the genesis of the conflict? Would it have been possible for the exchange to be more productive? Think about why disagreements often lead to fights rather than opportunities to learn from each other.

Write: Answer all of the following questions: What is an area of life in which you have experienced people treating arguments as a kind of war? What were the consequences of that approach? What is an area of life in which you have experienced people treating arguments as a kind of performance? Was that approach effective? Why is it better to treat arguments as a venue for learning? What traits of character does it require to be able to live according to that approach? What benefits can it have in our lives to take that approach? (please give a specific example)

Explain the link between the painters and composers

Answer all questions meeting the minimum word count using this citation:

Explain your answer using appropriate references to the musical element vocabulary (dynamics, tempo, rhythm, melody, texture, form, harmony, etc.). How do you think Adams’s “Ride” compares with Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries,” which was written 100 years earlier (Unit V)?

Explain the elements of the communication process

The work must be all ORIGINAL work. Its either 1 or 2 pages APA style format including the reference page.

As stated below the paper must answer all the questions listed below that applies to the speech you choose. I would prefere and may even pay a little extra if you choose the Obama inarguable address speech.







The ability to recognize and explain the elements of the communication process is the beginning of truly understanding how to prepare for and deliver effective oral presentations. When we are able to recognize the elements of the communication process, we are then able to think more critically about the other factors involved in the effective delivery of oral presentations.

For this assignment, you will view a historical speech (see below) and explain how the speech uses each of the elements of the communication process identified in Chapter 1 of the textbook.

After viewing the speech, prepare a one- to two-page paper (not including title and reference pages) with an introduction and conclusion, formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Provide an explanation for the elements of the communication process seen in the speech by answering the following questions:

  1. Speaker: Who is the speaker in the speech?
  2. Message: What is his/her message?
  3. Channel: What is the channel of the speech?
  4. Interference: What types of interference do you see in the speech?
  5. Setting: What is the setting for the speech?
  6. Audience: Who is the audience for the speech?
  7. Feedback: What feedback do you see in the speech?

You must format your in-text citations for both the textbook and the selected speech video according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

What ideas or phrases come to mind when you hear the term intelligence?

                                         DUE TOMORROW 10PM NEW TORK TIME




Social and Emotional Intelligence


What ideas or phrases come to mind when you hear the term intelligence? Prior to the current emphasis on emotional and social intelligence, individuals tended to associate intelligence with one measurement: intelligence quotient or the IQ. While the IQ focuses on intellectual abilities, emotional intelligence focuses on an individual’s awareness of his or her feelings and the feelings of others, and social intelligence focuses on an individual’s interpersonal skills (Zastrow & Kirst-Ashman, 2013, pp. 475–476).



To prepare for this Discussion, read “Working With People With Disabilities: The Case of Andres” on pages 28–31 in Social Work Case Studies: Foundation Year. Consider what you have learned about social and emotional intelligence in this week’s resources as well as what you learn about the person and environment as it relates to young and middle adulthood.



  • Post by Tomorrow New York Time a Discussion that includes the following:
  • An explanation of how social and emotional intelligence are related to cultural factors
  • An explanation about how you, as a social worker, might apply the concepts of emotional and/or social intelligence to the case of Andres
  • An explanation of how social workers, in general, might apply social and emotional intelligence to social work practice. (Include a specific example in the explanation.)

Be sure to support your posts with specific references to the resources. If you are using additional articles, be sure to provide full APA-formatted citations for your references.

Discuss Globalization and Government

Globalization and Government” Please respond to the following:

  • Tom Friedman (2005), states that “Globalization” is a wonderful and natural process to which people need to adjust. To some critics, it is a dangerous pattern that needs to be resisted through public authority. And to others, it is a process that is not natural at all, but encouraged by public policy that serves some interests at the expense of others. According to Henry Kissinger (1999) “globalization is really another name for the dominant role of the United States.” Agree or disagree with Kissinger’s statement and provide evidence from the textbook that supports your view. Justify your response.
  • The Global Closet Calculator is a two-part interactive game that introduces the concepts of interdependence and globalization. Go to the National Geographic’s Website, located here, and click on “Begin Your Journey.” Discuss how your map of interdependence compared to everyone else’s. Next, identify the badges you received from the second part of the game, and provide your opinion as to whether or not you agree or disagree with those badges.

Question/scenario is below:

Minimum 300 words AND 3 internet references


Chef Samuelson is ethnically Ethiopian but was adopted and raised by Swedish parents and grandparents from whom he learned Scandinavian cookery. What is known as International Fusion Cuisine includes components of two or more distinct cookery traditions. Some hail this development. Others bewail the loss of cultural integrity that they fear will occur if the fusions “crowd out” the original distinctions of the “less powerful” culture’s cuisine. Thus we have a political power struggle played out in cultural terms, in this case, food. Provide one solid, logical argument, based on the hegemony theory you have learned, in favor of EACH point of view. Provide one solid, logical rebuttal to each argument.
