State Standards vs. Developmentally Appropriate Practices. Write a two- to three-page paper in which you address one of the following scenarios:
- You are an elementary school principal who is committed to ensuring that students experience a developmentally appropriate environment. Not all of your kindergarten teachers really understand how to use developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) to create such an environment yet. You are also tasked with introducing and enforcing the use of a new state-mandated, textbook-based reading curriculum to your kindergarten teachers. The curriculum is based on the State Content Standards for Reading in your state. As a principal, your job is to show teachers how they can successfully integrate the textbook and standards-based curriculum into their kindergarten classroom while maintaining a developmentally appropriate program. You decide to write a short article that you will ask all the teachers to read prior to your first meeting to introduce the new curriculum.
- You are a parent who is committed to ensuring that your youngest child experiences a developmentally appropriate learning environment in kindergarten. Your oldest two children learned to read in a kindergarten classroom that used DAP and they are now excellent and enthusiastic readers. You have just learned that there is going to be a new state-mandated textbook-based reading curriculum used in kindergarten next year AND that the new principal does not understand how to use developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) to teach reading. The curriculum is based on the State Content Standards for Reading your state. You decide to research and then share some suggestions for how the kindergarten teachers can successfully integrate the textbook and Standards-based curriculum into their kindergarten
