Question Description
I’m stuck on a Sociology question and need an explanation.

For your Final Project, you will integrate the knowledge that you have gained about guiding the social and emotional development of infants and toddlers to create a professional presentation. In a ten- to fifteen-slide PowerPoint or Prezi (Links to an external site.) presentation (not including the title and reference slides), you will address the following scenario:

Scenario: As the new director of a recently opened early childhood center, you are in charge of presenting a 30-minute presentation to prospective families who are seeking care for their infants and/or toddlers. To ensure that all required material is covered, you must create a presentation that addresses each of the areas described below. You will need to design each slide to be clear, concise, and aesthetically pleasing.

Preparing the Presentation
The presentation must include:

Ten to fifteen slides (not including separate title and reference slides) formatted according to APA style.
Introduction to the Center

Provide your personal introduction that includes your preferred teaching style and a detailed overview of your experience as an educator (if you have not worked with children, you have most likely been an educator with your own children, family members, co-workers, church members, etc.).
Describe the Program’s Philosophy- Consider how the course content informed your program’s philosophy on how children learn and grow (this is not the same as your personal philosophy but will overlap). Please describe your program’s philosophy, which should be supported by the theoretical perspective that aligns most with your personal view as well as your experience and knowledge you have acquired in this course. View the example of a program’s philosophy here (Links to an external site.)..

Introduction to Social and Emotional Growth in Infants and Toddlers

Discuss key components of healthy social and emotional growth in infants and toddlers.
Discuss stages of emotional development in infants and toddlers.
Explain how your center will use this information to inform daily practices.

Fostering Healthy Social and Emotional Development in Infants and Toddlers

Discuss environmental factors that foster healthy social and emotional development in infants and toddlers
Discuss guidance techniques that foster healthy social and emotional development in infants and toddlers
Explain specific strategies you use in your center to assist children with diverse needs

Conclusion

Create a summary of your presentation.

Q & A

Develop three questions that prospective parents may ask following your presentation. Share your responses.

You also must incorporate the following elements throughout the entirety of the presentation:

Include a title and reference slide and use a minimum of four scholarly research articles, including two from the Ashford Online Library.
Professional examples.
Practical applications.
Use the notes section at the bottom of the slide to elaborate on the key points of your slide.
Use APA Format throughout your presentation as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Appropriate and Pertinent Visuals (e.g., graphics, charts, photos, graphs, etc.).
Suggestions

Your slide should include only talking points, remember that a presentation is different from a paper
For additional assistance in Designing an effective presentation, see the Designing an Effective PowerPoint Presentation: Quick Guide (Links to an external site.)

Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
