Assignment 1:

In teams, compose a research-based essay and informational brochure focusing on ‘Direct and Indirect Child Guidance’.

Part 1: Essay

In your essay, provide a comprehensive explanation of the two
different types of guidance (direct and indirect), what each entails,
and how teachers or caregivers can implement these in the early
childhood setting.

Your essay should be 1250-1500 words and should include at
least three (3) citations. The sections should be clearly marked with
headings so that your instructor knows which points you are addressing.
Follow the guidelines for APA writing style. The title page and
references page do not count towards the minimum word amount for this

Part 2: Physical Classroom Model

Create a research-based classroom model (i.e., a visual model
of the classroom with identified areas of that physical space and a
caption for each part of the room explaining your rationale for where
everything is placed). Write a 500-750 word description of each part of
the room and explain why you chose that design element as it relates to
promoting positive guidance for young children.

Use Word or PowerPoint to design a single page visual layout of
an ideal classroom that focuses on creating direct and indirect support
for properly guiding children’s academic, social, and behavioral
development. Be sure to make this realistic, detailed in terms of
including all necessary components in this physical space, colorful, and
include a solid balance between text and graphics.
