Early Childhood and Family Studies
topic：Reflection on Childhood Assignment
2 pages (no less than 2 and no more than 3), double spaced, 12 point font.
In this assignment you will reflect on your own early childhood experiences and consider how at least two of these influences have made you who you are today. Our unique experiences influence how we view the world. By reflecting on these experiences, we gain a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
Requirements: 2 pages (no less than 2 and no more than 3), double spaced, 12 point font.
I am interested in seeing that:
1. You have reflected on your past experiences – an incident, a life event, an early relationship, a school experience, a set of circumstances – anything that happened from ages 0 to 10. Please choose 2 influences. This information is worth 40 points.
2. You have connected your story to 2 concepts/ideas we have talked about in class. This could be from lectures, readings, videos, discussions, or activities we have done in class. Example, risk and protective factors, parenting styles, Bronfenbrenner’s model . This is worth 30 points.
I do not need you to write our reflection in two sections – you are welcome to weave in the ideas or concepts into your story. However, if it’s easier for you to organize your paper into 2 sections, that’s fine too. You do NOT need to cite these ideas or concepts but please provide a brief explanation of how they relate to you.
