Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.

Case Study: Student with Special Needs
All students have a right to education and safety at the expense of the school that he/she attends, including students with special need that requires special situation with no additional cost. Having such a diverse student body, an administrator would need to have an understanding of the legal ramification that is included in disciplining and accommodating special education students academically. All students have a right to be educated and in education there is a needed to become cautious that a special educational student can be expelled and/or suspended for being offenders of the school disciplinary code of conduct, like all other students. Also, staff and administration must become aware of the procedures of the IDEA in discipline students of special needs. This paper will discuss the disciplining of a special education students and if the disciplinary action taken to discipline a students was appropriated according to the special education laws.

Case 10: Evaluating the Consultation and EducationDepartment Research

Evaluation the Consultation and EducationDepartment
The Greenby Community Mental Health Center process evaluation measure suggests the Consultation and EducationDepartment needs to implement the address of the real questionable issue within the organization, and to evaluate the programs being offered through the organization. The questionable issue at the center involves the discontinuance of the Consultation and Educationdepartments. We understand the organization is facing an issue in regard to required service programs. We also understand the community mental health center has suggested as long as there is a director available the proposed suggestion will work, but doing so will take away workshops that have been instrumental to the program consumers. The implemented design includes dedicating a percentage of each professionals work towards Consultation and Education (Lewis, p. 242).
The process evaluation should include a strategy, which involves active participation from the workers, in the organization, in order to meet the objectives of the process evaluations. We will be utilizing and analysis, which is set in place by the expert consultants the director, has contracted. Strategic...
...help contrast current operations or conditions with objectives ( Judith A. Lewis, Thomas Packard, & Michael D. Lewis, 2006 ). Program planners need to be able to make judgments concerning the effects of specific services. The purpose of evaluation is to help improve the ways agencies serve individuals and communities. The Greenby Community Mental Health Center is facing the cutback of the Consultation and Educationdepartments. Although consultation andeducationdepartments are required for all community medical centers, they do not have to be fully staffed. They can instead implement consultation and education as a percentage of each professional's work. The Executive Director insists that funding needs to be given to the programs that bring in revenue. Although consultation and education's workshops have attracted many from the community who would not be there otherwise, the revenue is shown for other programs not education and consultation. The Executive Director needs something on paper to take to the Board of Directors showing that these departments are needed and should remain fully staffed as is. A process evaluation measure and an outcome evaluation measure is needed to display the programs' effectiveness. The scope and purpose of each need to reflect how they influence design. Specific issues and challenges may arise from the evaluation and needs to...
...have faced (and still do) doubts and discrimination from the public, but along the way they have also reaped benefits they would not have if the merger had never taken place.
Title IX was the stepping-stone for mergers and sports, but immediately after the merging took place, women were fully discriminated against. When men and women's sports combined, it opened new administrative positions for women, but what these women found were that they were constantly being pushed down to the bottom of the pile, to the least authoritative positions. Men were the head coaches, and the head of the physical educationdepartments Men organized the teams schedule for the season and organized practice hours. Also, "male sexist attitudes ensured that male rather than female athletic directors and heads of physical educationdepartments were almost automatically appointed to direct merged departments" (Hult p.96) This male over female preference continued right up to today. As of 1992 there are more men in administrative sports positions than women.
Women have been playing basketball for over a century before the Women's National Basketball Association came into existence. It was here at Smith College where many women got their first taste of the game. Women were described as having a "masculine performance style... rough and vicious play... worse than in men" (Hult 86). This aggressive playing style had to be...
