Allocate at least 4 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Communication among all stakeholders is essential in the development of young children. When educators know and understand the stakeholders’ perspectives, they can best serve the students and their families.
For this assignment, you will be interviewing one teacher, one family member/guardian, and the director from your field experience child care center. Use the questions on the “Community Demographic Template” to conduct interviews that examine the roles of schools, families, and communities in the education of young children.
Use any remaining field experience hours observing the center and how families are involved.
After you have completed all three interviews, reflect, in 150-200 words, upon the contribution each person you interviewed makes to the education of young children. How will you incorporate this knowledge into your future teaching?
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
