Blog: Week 11: Your Personal Language and Literacy Development Journey
Life can be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.
—Søren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher
Throughout this course, you have examined the language development journeys of young children. You also created and documented the journey of a fictional child whom you created. You now consider your own language development journey by reflecting on a personal experience in which you were learning language and/or a time when you were supporting a young child in language development. You then apply what you have explored in this course to analyze and deepen your understanding of this memory.
Because this is your final activity in this course, be sure to take your time in your Blog interactions, supporting your community of practice colleagues as they share their final insights.
By Day 3 of Week 11
Post the following in your Blog: Describe a personal memory related to your own language development journey and/or a time when you fostered language development with a young child. Explain how this course has deepened your perspective of that memory and/or experience. Then, share an activity or resource from this course that has affected your current and/or future practice as an early childhood professional and why. Last, describe a topic or issue you would still like to learn more about and how this topic or issue might affect your future research as a scholar of change.
By Day 7 of Week 11
Interact with your community of practice, sharing additional insights, comparing experiences, and posing questions that promote further dialogue.
