The Human Brain. Read Chapter 2 of the class text. Our text states, “The human brain appears to be “prewired” for the development of language” (nature) and “It is only through interaction in the environment that language is acquired” (nurture). In what ways does brain development research document the influence of both nature and nurture on language development? Which do you think is more crucial to language development and acquisition? Why?

Journal. In a home, community or social setting refrain from verbal communication for a set amount of time. All communication must be completed with nonverbal interaction. Use eye contact, shared references and gestures to communicate with others. Share the experience in detail in your journal entry and relate how lack of oral language development affected your ability to communicate. Make sure you include the actions and reactions of those involved. How does the experience relate to a child’s language development? What did you learn from the experience? What was the most difficult part?

Applying Theoretical Perspective to Curriculum Content. Go to MindMeister and create a free account.

You will be creating a Mindmap to share with your classmates using MindMeister. Your map will show the following theoretical perspectives: behaviorist, nativist, cognitive developmentalist, and interactionist. Incorporate a brief overview of each into your Mindmap and identify the theorist-researcher associated with each perspective. When this portion of your Mindmap is complete, share your Mindmap with your classmates by exporting your file to the Doc Sharing forum.

Language Development in Infants and Toddlers. Read Chapters 4 and 5 of the class text and explore the recommended websites:

PBS Parents: http://www.pbs.org/parents/

Babysigns: https://www.babysigns.com/index.cfm?id=72

According to Otto (2010), “During infancy and toddlerhood, children’s language competencies develop in five areas of language knowledge: phonetic, semantic, syntactic, morphemic and pragmatic” (p.126). Identify a minimum of two developmentally appropriate activities for infants and two for toddlers that would enhance language knowledge. Explain which area or areas of language knowledge the activities support and the expected outcome of each. Share any experience you are aware of that effected your own or your child’s language acquisition as an infant or toddler.

Language Development in Preschoolers and Kindergarteners. Read Chapter 6, 7 and 8 of the class text, as well as the articles from ProQuest.

Language knowledge develops during the preschool years to prepare students for success in kindergarten and beyond. Preschool education and the government funding that supports it has been a consistent topic of debate since its conception. Given what you have learned about the importance of developmentally appropriate methodologies in respect to learning and to the continued support of preschool and early education programs, what do you think of giving iPads to kindergartens or having prom in preschool? Support your argument with evidence to prove the developmental appropriateness or inappropriateness of either. If you had a child in either program, what would you do? Why? In addition address how the program could impact support and /or funding for early education programs.

Early Literacy. Read Chapter 8 of the class text and watch a minimum of three videos available from the ReadingRockets website (http://www.readingrockets.org/podcasts/earlylit).

Identify the videos you watched and provide a brief synopsis of your favorite. Discuss the methods and strategies that were used or presented in the video. Identify the curriculum presented that supported language acquisition and explain how they are developmentally appropriate. How do they address the five aspects of language? Would you use any of the ideas presented in your own classroom? Or with your own children?

Kindergarten Curricular Goals. On page 261 of our text, Otto (2010) lists the following five curricular goals:

1. Increase children’s ability to communicate orally in instructional and conversational settings.

2. Encourage an awareness of the purposes of reading and writing.

3. Increase vocabulary through conceptual development.

4. Increase listening comprehension.

5. Increase children’s awareness of the process of communicating by using written language.

Given the ability of a kindergartner and his/her language development, what kinds of activities would be appropriate to support each goal? Provide evidence supporting your activity choices. If possible, recall your own personal experience in kindergarten and relate activates that enhance

ECE 315 Week 4 DQ 2 Phonics Controversy (Ash)

www.uophelp.com

Phonics Controversy. During the primary years, children’s language development increases in amount and complexity. They are exposed to more direct instruction of phonetic, semantic, syntactic , morphemic and pragmatic knowledge. Some believe their natural development may be stinted by the regimented rote memorization of phonics and the manipulation of language, while others believe a systematic approach, such as phonics instruction, is the best way to increase language acquisition. The controversy over whole language and phonics has developed over the past twenty years. Describe the central concerns of the current controversy regarding phonics instruction. Then choose two of the language enhancing activities explored in Chapter 11 of our text and determine whether or not phonics instruction can and/or should be embedded in them. What is your view on phonics instruction? Why?

Assessment Referrals. What considerations must be made before making a referral for additional assessment in determining whether a student has a communication disorder or not?
