Collaboration with families and colleagues is key when it comes to child development. It is commonplace for educators to seek feedback on ideas, strategies, and approaches to the children’s learning.
For this field experience, interview the director of the child care center about the family structures represented at the center. During your interview, present your Community Advocate assignment from Topic 2 to the center’s director. Obtain feedback on your assignment. Ask the director how the family structures at the center compare with those discussed in your Community Advocate assignment.
Write a 250-500 word summary of your interview in which you compare the family structures at the center with those discussed in your Community Advocate assignment. Include any feedback or insights provided by the director in your interview. Explain how you could apply what you learned to identify the values and needs of diverse cultures and communities in order to incorporate students’ experiences, cultures, and communities into your future teaching practice.
