Establishing and maintaining a sense of community is an integral part of the cla

Establishing and maintaining a sense of community is an integral part of the classroom environment. These elements are what make students feel comfortable and safe to learn.
Allocate at least 4 hours in the field to support this field experience. 
Speak with your mentor teacher and, provided permission, seek opportunities to observe three different classrooms, pre-K-Grade 3. Your mentor teacher must approve any hours spent observing another classroom environment.
In each classroom, observe how the teacher shares the class schedule, posts rules, and promotes a positive classroom community during routines and instruction. Pay particular attention to the use of digital media and tools used to meet the needs of diverse learners.
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
In 500-750 words, summarize and reflect on your field experiences. In your summary, compare and contrast the three classrooms, answering the following questions:
    •    How did each teacher share the daily class schedule with the students?
    •    How did each teacher post and share the classroom rules and behavior expectations?
    •    What positive routines and behavior reinforcements were implemented during instruction to establish a positive learning environment?
    •    Did the teachers have different expectations for their students?
    •    What differentiation was identified during instruction?
    •    What adjustments would you have made in the classrooms? What technology resources would you utilize?
    •    How is the design of the each classroom you observed different? Share one design example that aligns with a positive classroom environment.

Hi, Answer both questions with a 250 word response each. Please keep both DQ1 and DQ2 responses separated. Thank you.
**Saade, Morin, and Thomas (2012)** Article is attached. For question 2.
Question 1
Critical thinking is one of many vital skills that learners must develop in order to successfully examine research, analyze data, and complete a dissertation. Consider the characteristics and practices associated with the skill of critical thinking. Which of these are more or less beneficial or important than others? How does synthesis integrate into your view of critical thinking? (This response does not require research support.)
Question 2
Saade, Morin, and Thomas (2012) describe critical thinking as the mental processes of discernment, analysis, and evaluation applied to information in order to achieve a logical final understanding and/or judgment. Describe your approach to breaking down information into component parts to better understand the characteristics of a statement, concept, or problem. How might outlining help to develop understanding? How do you know when to reach beyond previous experience and seek out other sources of information to enhance your understanding of the work in front of you? (This response does not require research support.)

Hi,
Answer both questions with a 250 word response and 1 reference for each. Please keep both DQ1 and DQ2 responses separated. Thank you.
***Morse, Barrett, Mayan, Olson, and Spiers (2002)***  article is attached.
Question 1
There are several unique characteristics of qualitative research that make it distinct from quantitative research. Describe the aspects of qualitative research and the elements of design that contribute to the rigor of the work. What actions of the researcher can compromise the integrity of the findings?
Question 2
Validity and reliability are primarily quantitative research concepts. Morse, Barrett, Mayan, Olson, and Spiers (2002) argue that their exclusion from qualitative research design undermines the credibility and rigor of qualitative research conclusions. Were they correct in this assertion? Why or why not?

Hi, Answer both questions with a 250 word response and 1 reference for each. Please keep both DQ1 and DQ2 responses separated. Thank you.
Question 1
Doctoral learners becoming researcher/scholars must be able to produce original, written academic works and to evaluate the calibre and originality of their writing and the writing of others. At the same time, all research has its foundation in other research. How can you as a doctoral level researcher balance producing your own original research with recognizing and crediting the works you use as your research foundation?
Question 2
This University  places great importance on academic integrity based in the Christian worldview. How will you go about utilizing sound habits and behaviors to prevent plagiarism, intentional or unintentional, in your coursework, doctoral writing, and ultimately your dissertation research? What temptations might doctoral students encounter that would challenge their ethics? How does your worldview influence your adherence to academic integrity?

There are many options available to families as they choose an early childhood education environment for their young children. While Montessori may be the most widely known, other options include Project Approach, Head Start, High Scope, Reggio Emilia, and Waldorf. As an early childhood professional, you need to be knowledgeable about the different options for families, as they may come to you as a resource.
For this assignment, create an 8-10 slide digital presentation for a professional development for new early childhood teachers that demonstrates educational options (birth-pre-K or K-3).
The digital presentation should include the following:
    •    Explanation of three evidence-based early childhood environments, one being Montessori and two of your choosing.
    •    How each environment contributes to building a safe, positive learning environment of openness, mutual respect, positive relationships, and supportive interactions.
    •    Key elements families should consider when choosing an environment for their child, such as use of compassion and care to promote child development and provide a safe learning environment.
    •    Description of the benefits of each educational environment, as well as the management system it uses.
    •    Title slide, references, and presenter’s notes.
Support your presentation with 3-5 scholarly resources.
The digital presentation should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
