Ashford 7: - Week 6 - Final Project

Summative Assessment

Background Scenario:

You are working for an early childhood center in your neighborhood. It has recently opened, and the director has placed you in charge of giving a 30-minute presentation on the program’s family and community engagement plan and approach.

Your responsibility will be to develop a presentation that reflects your center’s philosophy for family and community engagement based on current research and best practice. Your goal is to motivate parents and organizations in your community to participate in the family and community engagement plan for your school. You will need to include an overview of the plan as well as any assistance available to families through the organizations invited. Please use your creativity to ensure that your presentation is encouraging, enlightening, and inviting.

Preparing the Presentation

The presentation MUST:

  1. Describe your program's philosophy regarding family and community engagement.

  2. Determine how each of the following issues are addressed in your plan:

    • Developmental and learning outcomes for the child.
    • Respectful engagement with diverse family groups.
    • Approach to including families whose children have special needs.
    • Facilitation and support for connecting with community organizations.
    • Evidence of quality Early Care and Education programs.
  3. Align the components of your plan with current research and best practices in early care in education by making connections to examples or research found in the textbook, required readings, and at least five outside scholarly sources.

  4. Incorporate textbook and at least five or more visuals - (photos or links to video). You are free to use either PowerPoint or Prezi as formats for the presentation.

  5. Provide what you would say to families upon showing each slide. (Use the notes portion at the bottom of the slide for this.)

Include a separate title and reference page, formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your reference page must include a minimum of five outside scholarly sources in addition to the textbook and required readings.
