Describe behavioral strategies that can be utilized to assist a child who is struggling with self-regulation.

Create a self-regulation newsletter for one period of development (infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, or adolescence). You can present your newsletter either in written format or as a YouTube Video. If you need help creating your YouTube video, use this Webcam Quick Start Guide. Your newsletter/video will need to include the following information:

A paragraph about the emotional development of children within this stage of development. (e.g., after age two, children talk about their feelings or preschoolers typically pick up strategies for regulating emotion by watching adults). Make sure to include emotional understanding, empathy, and the role that temperament plays with children this age. 

At least four specific tips for how you can help to promote emotional self-regulation at this stage of development (e.g., redirect the infants attention or parents/teachers or caregivers of preschoolers can use warm, patient verbal guidance that includes strategies to handle stress).

At least two behavioral strategies that can be utilized to assist a child who is struggling with self-regulation.

A concluding paragraph that outlines why good emotional self-regulation is vital for empathy to result in sympathy and prosocial behavior.

Consider how a different type of narration might alter the effect of a story.

develop a response to the following:

Identify the point of view used in the narration of the story. 
Provide a specific example from the story to illustrate your argument. 
Discuss how this perspective affects your reading and interpretation of the story. 
Consider how a different type of narration might alter the effect of the story.  

Point of view refers to the perspective from which the story is narrated. 

First person: In first person, the story is told from the perspective of the narrator, using first-person pronouns. (“We are driving off the bridge!” I screamed.)
Second person: This is not commonly used. In second person, the narrator addresses the reader as “you,” which gives the audience the feeling that they are a part of the story. (Example: As you drive off the bridge, you scream, but no one hears you.)
Third person: The story is told using third-person pronouns (“The car is driving off the bridge!” he shouted), and the narrator is either godlike in the ability to see and know everything (third-person omniscient) or not all-knowing with knowledge limited to the perspective of only one character (third-person limited). 

Tips
Remember to provide evidence for your claims in the form of quoted passages from the story. Quotations, paraphrases, and summaries should be cited according to APA rules of style, including in-text and reference citations. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of the document.
Check grammar and spelling before posting.

If someone knowingly causes self-harm, should other citizens be required to pay for their treatment?

A priority referenced through this agency that I personally feel to be the most important in health care today is healthy living. The truth is that our country spends more resources on health care than any country in the world, yet we are the least healthy in the developed world (AHRQ, 2016). Close to half of our citizens have one chronic medical condition, with a large portion of those conditions being self-induced, attributed to unhealthy living. 
Putting greater resources into preventative medicine is going to be key to improving the healthy living practices of our communities. We all know it falls onto the individual to make the healthy living choices but providing everyone with the education and tools to be healthy is something I feel is the greatest priority. Leading by example and showing others the benefits of staying active and eating responsibly is something that I take great passion in doing. Roughly 80% of all heart disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes and 40% of cancers are directly caused by the individuals actions (Advocates for Public Health Education, 2018).
A question that a patient asked me one day, stands out to me. “Why should I have to pay for someone else’s health care costs, when they are the ones responsible for their conditions?” If someone knowingly causes self-harm, should other citizens be required to pay for their treatment?

What is the correlation between creating personal education goals and self-directed learning?

 
Review the “Student Personal Educational Goal Setting Form” to complete this assignment.
Modeling and guiding students through the goal setting process can be a time consuming, but extremely valuable experience. The deeper the understanding that students have, and the more practice they get, the more natural goal setting and self-assessment will become.  
Part 1: Educational Goals
For this field experience, you will be working in the same classroom setting as in Clinical Field Experience A. Observe a math or English language arts lesson and identify the learning objectives delivered during instruction.
Following your observation, work with your mentor teacher to identify a small group of 2-3 students. Guide them through the process of setting educational goals directly related to the learning objectives identified in the lesson.
Have a discussion with the students about their understanding of the learning objectives. Use the “Student Personal Educational Goal Setting Form” to guide each student independently to set educational goals from the learning objectives. Reflect with students individually through this process, guiding them to formulate their own educational goals. Complete a “Student Personal Educational Goal Setting Form” for each student in your small group.
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class. 
Part 2: Reflection
In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your experience guiding the students through setting their personal education goals.

How does this process foster student ownership and independence in their own learning?
What is the correlation between creating personal education goals and self-directed learning?
How can you use this process in your future professional practice?

Submit the “Student Personal Educational Goal Setting Form” and reflection as one deliverable.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
