Presentation

On yourDiscussion Forum, you are required to post a response to the three questions outlined below. Each question generates its own response (in other words, do not do one post that answers all three questions).

You may either initiate a discussion or respond to someone else’s post. In your posting, back up your response to the question with reference to your readings.

Each posting is only short. A maximum of 200 words for each post, excluding references.

Make sure that you follow the correct procedures for referencing. You need to provide both in-text citations and a reference list at the end of each post (even if you only use one reference).

In order to pass you must make a minimum of one posting per question. Please commence your postings in the first week of study and complete them by the end of the third week. You cannot make all your postings in the final week. Answer the questions in your own words, drawing on your readings. The short survey also needs to be completed.

Requirements

Question 1.
After reading the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and associated readings (Week 1), select one article from the Convention you think is especially important for your work as an early childhood educator. DO NOT choose Article 31. State the number of the article, describe it in your own words and briefly explain why you think it is relevant.

Question 2.
After reading the booklet on the Right to Play (Week 2: Module 2) briefly explain why the Right to Play is relevant to your work as an early childhood educator.

Question 3.
Find an example of practice in your early childhood setting that relates to the Right to Play. It can either be an example of good practice or an example of where practices could be improved. Explain why you believe this is a good or poor example of respecting children's right to play. Do NOT identify your workplace.

Assessment 1a
Q1. Most important article from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), applicable for my work as Early Childhood Educato
    The UNCRC presents the agreement for the rights of children in their early years, because to live a peaceful, free and justified life in the world, every member of a human family need to have their rights realized, safeguarded as well as exercised (UNCRC, 1990). I, being an early childhood educator, have to safeguard the rights of the children so that they are subjected to better living conditions, whether at home or in the early childhood setting. After reading the 54 articles underlined in the UNCRC and other relevant readings,
I could identify Article 27 to be specifically important for my practice. The article 27 states that the nations that comply by the World Heritage Convention, that is, the State Parties, believe in the right to have an optimum standard of life for every child, so that they can develop wholly (UNCRC, 1990). Besides, it is the responsibilities of the parents to provide that standard of living to the children at par with their capabilities. For that purpose, the States Parties would extend support towards the parents and measures to sustain their adequate conditions. This article is relevant to my practice because, from my professional areas of duties, I can follow it to support the cause of establishing a quality standard of life for the children in their early years, by extending a supportive hand and educating them.
