Week 2 Content Review EDUC 4206
Content Review Directions: •Respond to each item. Each response should be concise and between 2–3 paragraphs in length. •Use MS Word to write your responses, and submit your answers to all three questions in one Word document. •Copy and paste each question within the document, so that your Instructor can see to which question you are responding. 1.Social and emotional development are complexly intertwined. Consider what you have learned about the toddler’s need to master autonomy while forming reciprocal attachment relationships with significant adults. Explain, using at least two examples, how these developmental needs are essential and complementary components of social and emotional development. 2.Supporting children’s cognitive development requires understanding each child’s zone of proximal development. Using your own words, explain the term zone of proximal development. Then, describe how two of the teaching strategies included in the article “Infants and Toddlers Exploring Mathematics” demonstrate supporting toddlers within their zone of proximal development as they acquire knowledge of mathematics. 3.”…a growing body of research strongly suggests that child-rearing practices and other environmental factors can dramatically influence temperament during the first three years (Swim, 2017, pp. 55). In your own words, explain what the term temperament refers to, and identify how creating a good fit between the toddler’s temperament and his/her environment-including the physical environment and adult and peer interactions within that space—can promote positive social and emotional outcomes.
