INTASC Standard, Description and Rationale
Standard# 6 Assessment
The teacher understands and uses multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress, and to guide the teacher’s and learner’s decision making.

Name of Artifact: Toddler Observation Project
Date: February 13, 2014
Course: EDUC 121
Brief Description: For this assignment, I observed a 36 months old child. This assignment will help me to better understand the toddler’s physical development process. In this observation the topics I have covered for the toddler’s observation are his physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. Further in this observation we are going to discuss whether the toddler’s growth is typical for his age group, the difference in his behavior, and the signs of independence, if any observed.
To document my understanding of Standard# 6, Assessment, I decided to include the Toddlers Observation Project because the toddler is observed under naturalistic observation in which the child engages in various activities and reacts to certain situations spontaneously, or naturally. This project will help me better understand the typical growth and development for toddlers of this particular age group.

Toddler years (1 to 3) are a time of great growth and change, and a typical toddler will gain command of motor, cognitive and behavioral skills at a rapid rate. (2013, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health, Seattle Children's Hospital). In this observation I decided to observe and to understand the essential growth and development factors of a toddler. The toddler under observation for this project name is Jameson. He is 3 years old. He is white, and has blond hair with blue…...

...1) Introduction a. The “Babies” video showed us three different children. There was Ponijao from Namibia, Bayarjargal from Mongolia, and Mari from Tokyo. b. We meet the easygoing Ponijao, her mother and other members of her Himba tribe outside her family's dirt hut in Namibia. Curious Bayarjargal lives with his parents and siblings and a herd of cattle on their farm in remote Mongolia. Mari has a toy-filled existence in a small apartment with her parents in Tokyo. c. I was expecting more differences, because of the different cultural systems they were raised in, but I was struck by how similar their development was chronologically. This is, like, I think the theme is much more about the similarities than the differences.

...And The Mountains Echoed -Khaled Hosseini One fall 1952 So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one. But just the one. Don’t either of you ask me for more. It’s late, and we have a long day of travel ahead of us, Pari, you and me. You will need your sleep tonight. And you too, Abdullah. I am counting on you, boy, while your sister and I are away. So is your mother. Now. One story, then. Listen, both of you, listen well. And don’t interrupt. Once upon a time, in the days when divs and jinns and giants roamed the land, there lived a farmer named Baba Ayub. He lived with his family in a little village by the name of Maidan Sabz. Because he had a large family to feed, Baba Ayub saw his days consumed by hard work. Every day, he laboured from dawn to sundown, ploughing his field and turning the soil and tending to his meagre Pistachio trees. At any given moment you could spot him in his field, bent at the waist, back as curved as the scythe he swung all day. His hands were always callused, and they often bled, and every night sleep stole him away no sooner than his cheek met the pillow. I will say that, in this regard, he was hardly alone. Life in Maidan Sabz was hard for all its inhabitants. There were other, more fortunate villages to the north, in the valleys, with fruit trees and flowers and pleasant air, and streams that ran with cold, clear water. But Maidan Sabz was a desolate place, and it didn’t resemble in the slightest the image that its name, Field......

In 2013, Baby Boomers are ages 48 to 66. There are about 77 million boomers (the largest single generation surpassing children) in the U.S. today accounting for approximately $2 trillion in marketplace spending clout (Brandweek, March 2006.). Demographic Information The population size of Baby Boomers in 2006 was 77,980,296, with a percentage of 50.3% male and 49.7% female.

Baby in a Bottle

... BABY IN A BOTTLE by Benjamin Bautista The truth was, Mr. Libre felt sorry for his wife. He was very careful to hide it from her, of course, but day by day, through the years, as he saw her watching the shriveled half-black baby in the bottle, he felt more and more sorry for her. She would touch the bottle gently, once in a while, and run her hands fondly over the cold glass; inside, the stiff, skinless body of a four-inch boy now dead for five years, would bob up and down in the green alcohol. And then sometimes, slowly, to herself, she would smile. Mr. Libre‘s wife was a plain woman with high cheekbones and a sad mouth, who was only twenty-nine years old but whose eyes were no longer young. Mr. Libre himself was thirty-three but graying hair and some thick corded veins on his hands made him look older. He was a small man andvthin, and long hours of bending over receipts had given him a stooped posture and made him appear even smaller and thinner. Very often, whenever he could, Mr. Libre would try to walk to his wife to get her to start talking too, but it became harder and harder for them to find things to talk about. The talk always turned to the past and how different it might have been if they‘d had children. Mr. Libre didn‘t want to talk about those things but his wife did, and gradually, the pauses stretched longer and made them both uneasy. But he was always patient with her; even if he was tired or irritable he never showed it in any way. By now he had......

Babies Having Babies

...Aleida Calderon Mrs. Merrell Gross ENC1101 5 November 2013 Word Count: 1364 Babies Having Babies Although the rate of teen pregnancies in the United States has declined in recent years, it remains the highest of any developed country. According to an article in, “In 2011, a total of 329,797 babies were born to women aged 15-19 years, for a live birth rate of 31.3 per 1,000 women in this age group. This is a record low for U.S. teens in this age group, and a drop of 8% from 2010” (“About Teen Pregnancy”). While the rates have declined, the stigma that surrounds the problem has not. Researchers have not been able to provide an explanation as to why the rate has dropped. Many parents, politicians, and researchers disagree about the significance and the effects of this issue. Some believe teen pregnancy is a small indicator of society’s prominent predicaments; others argue that it maintains those crises. Teen pregnancy has a significant short-term and long-term impact on the American economy and not only affects teens, but also the nation. Teen pregnancies have financial ramifications that affect the whole country. An article in Public Health Reports states, “Giving birth in the teen years can limit one’s social and financial well-being” (Penman-Aguilar). Many believe that a link exists between the high teen pregnancy rates and poverty in the U.S. The United States spends billions every year on sex education programs and on helping the majority of teen mothers by...

The thing you need to remember is that is right way to change a diaper. Here are a few suggested steps to get you started .First use things first you need to be prepared. Before you start you need to grab your supplies that means clean diapers, wipes, and wet cloths. If your baby has sensitive skin make sure you use lukewarm water and guaze. If your baby has a lot of diaper rash it is best to keep a lot of diaper rash cream or petroleum jelly on hand Here is something to remember never leave your baby unattended not even for a second. You need to wash your hands before and after each diaper change. Then you open up the clean diaper and place the back half with the tabs on both side under the baby, next you unfasten the tabs on the dirty diaper, fold them over to prevent the tabs from sticking to the baby. Remove the front of the dirty diaper if you are dealing with a boy you might want to have any extra diaper or clean cloth to cover the baby’s penis so he doesn’t pee on you. If the baby has pooped use the front part of the diaper to clean the bulk of the poop off the baby’s bottom. Make sure that you let your baby’s skin air dry to prevent diaper rash, or you may apply rash cream or petroleum tump until it falls offjelly. After that your baby is ready for a new diaper. Remember if the baby is newborn don’t cover the......

Baby Theresa

...Baby Theresa The case of Baby Theresa became a worldwide controversy that made several minds scramble on making the right decision. Baby Theresa was an anencephalic infant with no chance of survival. Her parents volunteered her organs for transplant to save other children, yet by the time she died, her organs were too deteriorated to be transplanted. Several question arose when this scenario came into questions for the Florida Law officials. South Florida ruled that Theresa's vital organs could not be transplanted until all brain activity - including any function of her brain stem, which controls respiratory and heartbeat - had ceased. Vital questions/concerns were raised on if the right decision was made and if the law was upheld. In one way I believe doctors should have allowed the transplant of Baby Theresa's organs because they could have benefited other children and this would not have harmed Baby Theresa, who had no conscious life anyway. On the other hand, it is always wrong to use one person as a means to somebody's else's ends, that it would have been wrong to violate Baby Theresa's autonomy. But Baby Theresa had no capability of autonomy and her parents were her decision maker. Yet the law makes rules in order to abide certain circumstances like these. Therefore if the law were to bend the rule for this situation then the law would not be upholding their status and would have to give everyone an exemption. Several statements can be made and inferred with......

..."You are going to have a baby" seven words that changed my life. On April 14th, I woke up and didn't want to go to school because I wasn't feeling well. My mom came into my room and asked me if I was going to get out of bed and go to school. I told her that I needed to go to the doctor. "Why, are you sick?" she asked. "No, I think I'm pregnant." We both just sat there and cried together. I knew then what I should not have done that night. A baby would take up all my time, the time that I needed to grow up myself. I got up, dressed myself, and didn't bother putting any make-up on because I knew I would probably be crying. We went into the doctor's office and found out that I was a little over three months pregnant. When the nurse said those seven words, I started to cry. I looked over at my mom and she had tears in her eyes. I didn't know what to think. I wanted it to be a dream, that I would wake up from and everything would be okay. We then listened to the heartbeat, which was really fast. It was really neat and it made us cry some more. The nurses asked me a whole bunch of questions, gave me on some prenatal pills to sample, and then told me to schedule an appointment to come back sometime next week. They acted like it was no big deal. Well, it was, didn't they realize that I was only seventeen years old, a senior, and not even out of high school yet. I could no longer be the carefree cheerleader, who had fun with her friends every weekend, and played beach......

...and similarities of four babies’ childhood from four different locations. Among these four babies, two babies are from urban area, Mari from Tokoyo, Japan and Hattie from San Francisco. Where other two babies are from rural area, Ponijao is from Opuwo, Namibia and baby boy Bayar is from Bayanchandmani, Mongolia. This assignment will presents below four main differences between rural and urban area babies experiences in their childhood: sanitation and safety, feeding and bathing, toys and play and family structure. Firstly, one of main concern between all these four babies is about sanitation and safety. Ponijao and Bayar were growing up within an uneducated society, where Safety and security is less concern and children play with animals and insects. Babies from rural area usually feed with unhealthy food; they don’t have stronger medication system to improve babies’ health conditions. The main goal of babies in rural area is to join their society and do same work their family do, nothing extra. On other side, Mari and Hattie both were grown up in urban cities and regularly checked by doctors and stronger medication system. Society in urban area always more concern about safety and security of babies in terms of foods, medical system. Secondly, food is a main part of everyone’s life and it is essential for everyone’s health. New born babies get their food directly from their mother and it is very important to consider their mother’s health for babies’ feeding because many......

...beautiful babies: Ponijao from Namibia, Mari from Tokyo, Bayar from Mongolia and Hattie from San Francisco. All four babies are surrounded by different macrosystems but display similar developmental patterns regardless of their upbringing. All these children still must go through the same developmental milestones. In the first year of life babies undergo dramatic changes, many of these are observed in this film. All four babies are living in their own microsystems, each very different from one another. Ponijao has a big family consisting of several siblings, Bayar lives with his parents and a brother, and Mari and Hattie are the only children for their parents, which is a typical situation in developed countries. We see the babies going through the Sensorimotor Stages as soon as they were born, they all were breastfed, which is a sign that they had sucking reflexes that are connected with rooting reflex and breastfeeding. There was an episode where Babinski reflex shown: Mari was sitting in her highchair and a family cat playing with baby’s feet. I noticed that Mari had all possible toys to help her to develop mentally and physically, but she also can be seen playing with CDs and cellphones. On the other hand Ponijao was happy to play with sticks, stones beads and a plastic bottle. I saw Bayar unrolling toilet paper and feeling very happy when he finally got to its base, which he immediately put in his mouth (Oral Stage of Sigmund Freud’s Theory). Watching these babies......

...which there were appropriate referral sources. At the meeting, observers told ED staff that they were leaving cards in the ED with the telephone numbers of three hotlines for battered women, although from that point on observers did not mention the cards to staff. The fact that ED directors had allowed these activities to take place was an indication to ED staff that the directors had granted some legitimacy to this issue. On the other hand, at no time did ED or hospital administrators set up procedures for identifying battered women or give any other indication that they viewed the issue as a priority. Informally, staff knew about battered women from having seen them in the ED. Based on a record review, an average of one woman per day comes to each of these hospitals with injuries inflicted by husbands or boyfriends.3 All staff who were asked about battered women expressed awareness of "these women." ED staff do not usually use the term "battered women," but refer to "the woman who was hit/beaten by her husband/boyfriend."4 A major reason for staffs awareness of the presence of battered women is that in 75 percent of the cases the battered women volunteer that they have been injured by a husband or boyfriend. In the other 25 percent of the cases, it becomes known because a relative or the police tell the cause of the injury. In the following section I describe the three major responses to battered women in the three EDs: "positive," "partial,"and "no......

Miracle Baby

...Miracle Baby My life has changed forever the day that I found out that I might not be able to have any more kids well at least what the doctors thought. My husband and I were looking forward to having a child together even though he considers the girls to be his own. I was so upset and wasn't looking forward to go home and tell my husband the news. We were trying to get pregnant over a year already. I thought that I would just enjoy our girls but God had different plans for me. On March 7th my life has changed around. I was relaxing and playing with the girls but I felt really nauseous all day. I knew that I couldn't be pregnant but something in my heart told me to get a test and take it. My youngest daughter Brianna exact words that stay in my head," Mom I know that you are pregnant." Well when I took that test I started crying my eyes out and my girls were there and kept saying "mom you will have another baby some day we know it." Well when I gave them the test it showed them two lines. They started crying and screaming, "Mommy your pregnant! We are going to have a brother and sister." I sat them down and had to explain to them that I might not be having a baby because of what the doctors said. I had to wait two weeks until I could see a doctor. They doctors were shocked and told me not to get too happy. I did exactly what they said and woke up two days later bleeding. I went to the hospital and I found out that I had placenta previa which is when the uterus...

Baby Inhalation and Exhalation – Using the “Inhalation and Exhalation” chart, fill in the muscles involved in inhalation and exhalation as well as the movements they perform in Table 4. Table 4. Inhalation Accessory Muscle Function Principal Muscle Function Exhalation Active Muscles 546 Function Station 2: Spirometry Measuring the capacity of the lungs is an important indication of possible respiratory distress. A pulmonary function test (PFT) measures lung function, and one of the most common tools to measure volume and capacity is the spirometer. The capacity and volume of the lungs differ according to sex, age, body type, and fitness level. For regular day-to-day activities only about 30-40% of the lung capacity is used. With regular aerobic exercise, it is possible to increase the overall capacity of the lungs. Through disease, environmental factors, or lifestyle choices it is also possible to reduce the capacity of the lungs. For example, asthma, emphysema, air pollution, altitude, weather, and/or smoking can all reduce lung capacity and volume. Directions 1. There are three spirometers located at this station. Use an alcohol wipe to clean off the mouthpiece on one of the spirometers. 2. Using Table 5 below, determine your tidal volume, expiratory reserve volume, inspiratory reserve volume, and vital capacity using the......
