Culture influences learning. How children are raised affects how they learn. Effective educators consider the various learning needs of the students, or their culture, when planning for instruction.

For this assignment, identify a birth to Pre-K child care center, and observe an infant/toddler classroom and a preschool classroom environment within the same center. During your observations, answer the questions on the “Clinical Field Experience A: Observation Log.”

Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.

After observing the two classrooms, write a 250-500 word comparison of the learning environments. Address the following questions:

  • How will you develop clear lines of communication with families to ensure diverse learning needs are met?
  • What challenges might you face in communicating with families of different cultures?
  • How could you integrate diverse cultures into your future classroom in order to develop a positive learning environment?

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
