Discussion 1
This discussion assignment is similar to the previous one (Discussion 3). To complete it, read the material below and respond with your assessment of what is going on and what should be happening differently.

Tip: Your submissions to this forum should not be repeats of last week's posts -- this one has a different focus and different solutions. A hint may be found in the assignment’s title, "Infant Grief and Loss". Think about why and how infants might experience grief and loss in addressing the situation below.

In a structured child care program for the infants and toddlers of teen mothers, the very youngest infants are in one small room with a caregiver. At four months, the infants are moved to the next room, with a new caregiver. At eight months, they are moved again - and so on until age three. An observer noted, "On the day I visited the center, the caregiver of the youngest infants was standing in the doorway of her room, watching the caregiver in the next room try to comfort a tiny, crying infant. The first caregiver looked upset. I asked her what was wrong, and she said, 'That baby was with me for the past three months; I really love him.'"

Design/identify an activity for each of the developmental domains that would be appropriate for the age range that you chose. Be sure to tell why the activity/exercise that you chose is developmentally appropriate. Since there are 4 developmental domains, you will be listing 4 activities/exercises. DO NOT SIMPLY REPEAT FROM THE TEXTBOOK.
Discussion 3
Part 1: For this final discussion forum, describe three things you learned from the course that you will want to remember 5 years from now. These can be ideas, theories, concepts, techniques, etc. that you think are memorable and will be useful to you in the future. In addition to naming and describing them, be sure to say why you believe they will prove useful.

*** Be sure to be thorough here. This discussion calls for you to reflect and articulate beyond a list. ;-)

Part 2: The second part of your post is regarding the Developmentally Appropriate Practice Book. Of what value is this book and how can it be used effectively in your work with children? Why is DAP so important?
