 10      10 unread replies.    10      10 replies.         

Your  initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until  Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect  both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.  Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon  above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

   Brain Development    

Brain-based education suggests that physical exercise is important  for brain development.  Research has shown that in addition to physical  exercise, other activities focus on stimulating the social development  and intellectual development of young children.


Gerry, who is still incapable of jumping with both feet, may not  be invited to join in a game of jump rope.  This is an example of how a  child’s individual characteristics (motor skills in this case) can  affect context (social environment) and influence development  (LeFrancois, 2012).  

Reflect back on your own development as a  child, or on the development of a child you know, and provide an  example of how individual characteristics affected development.  Using  the text and other scholarly resources, provide some suggested  activities or strategies that would provide the necessary support to  enhance the affected development.  For example, Gerry’s teacher notices  she is being excluded from the game of jump rope and intervenes by  showing Gerry how to twirl the rope.  Gerry is now included socially,  despite her delayed motor development.

Guided Response:  Review your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two classmates.   Analyze their suggestions and compare their personal experiences with  your own.  Discuss the outcome of your experiences, and whether their  suggestions have worked or failed for you in the past.  Suggest  additional activities and/or strategies that they might find helpful.
