Understanding Today

Based on the Week 5 video class sessions and Children at Risk notes in your Understanding Today’s Child student manual, answer the following questions:

  • What are you already doing in your classroom, in your interaction with children, or in your ministry that should continue based on the information that was shared in these sessions?
  • What needs to change in your teaching and interaction with children and/or families based on the information that you have learned?
  • What first step will you take this week in making these changes?

Referencing the course content is required. The entire post should be 200-300 words.

Post your answers (200-300 words) in the Week 5 Forum by Friday at 11:55 PM (Central Time).

Return to the Week 5 Forum (via the link at the bottom of this page) after Friday, and respond (75-100 words) to at least two posts written by your classmates in a way that will stimulate their thinking. You might ask expansive questions or agree or disagree with certain parts. Be sure to give specific reasons or examples as to why you agree or disagree. Include personal accounts, reasons, or examples to support comments that you make. Be sure to answer any questions that other students post and follow each conversation to a logical conclusion. Include references to course content in at least two of your responses.

Your responses (75-100 words each, including references to course content) need to be posted to the Week 5 Forum by 11:55 PM Monday (Central Time).
