Part 1

 

In our society, we encounter moral questions every day. Television shows and films commonly present characters who must face moral dilemmas and choose a course of action. You can see this in both dramas and sitcoms, like “Dexter,” “Law & Order,” “The Office,” “”Scandal,” and “Breaking Bad,” and in films, such as I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Avatar, and The Blind Side.

 

Choose a television show, film, or piece of literature that you believe suggests a moral choice. First, provide a brief overview of the show, film, or piece of literature, and then explain the story which features a moral question/ethical dilemma. What was the result of this dilemma/moral question? Was the rationale for this choice convincing? In your Discussion response(s), consider how the categories of morality, such as self-interest, altruism, moral absolutism, or moral relativism, are portrayed in these decisions. Incorporate a connection to the Unit 3 reading material in your response; include APA formatting.

 

Part 2

 

The text discusses "whistle-blowing" and issues of morality and work. If you were in a situation where your employer was acting unethically, would you blow the whistle?

 

What are some of the elements to consider in making this decision?

 

Which factors would you need to ensure before you would report what you know?

 

Which factors might prevent you from acting? Incorporate a connection to the Unit 3 reading material in your response; include APA formatting.

 

Part 3

 

Jamal is a 22-month-old toddler in your home childcare center. He has been in your center for 2 weeks and you have some concerns about his development. His mother reports that the pregnancy and birth were non-eventful and that he has developed typically. Jamal’s mother stayed home with him until 2 weeks ago when she took a full-time clerical job. Your concerns about Jamal are two-fold: he is not walking yet and he only says three words consistently: mama, bye-bye, and no.

 

What would be your recommendation for assessing Jamal?

 

 

Would a standardized test be appropriate? Why or why not? If yes, give examples of appropriate standardized assessments.

 

 

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of standardized tests.

 

Keeping in mind that you can and should always try to collect assessment data from a variety of sources, what further assessment would you recommend and why?

 

 

Give an example of how you would you approach Jamal’s mother to discuss your concerns and the need for appropriate assessment. Please remember that as a student in the early childhood profession you cannot identify nor suggest a diagnosis, but you can recommend appropriate assessment by a trained professional.
