This assignment focuses on a resource that could be used within an early childhood centre to support children from home into and within early years child care settings. This assignment does not address the transition to school.
As a group you need to create your own resource. Although you may draw on existing resources you need to create something of your own.
Design a resource for early childhood educators working in settings with children from birth to 5 years of age, this resource is to support children, teachers and families who are transitioning from home into and within early years child care settings. The main purpose of the resource is to support these transitions and those involved with them. The resource can include images, diagrams, pamphlets, toys etc but it is important that these are used in ways that support teachers, children and families with transitions.
The assignment needs to include, relating to the resource:
a brief introduction that summarises the importance of transitions within early childhood settings for children and their parents, and the important role of educators the challenges transitions can pose, identifying factors that can get in the way of children and parents making smooth transitions as they move into these new settings Strategies and practices that support children, families and practices to make smooth transitions into new settings that links directly to your resource a digital representation of the resource itself Assessment Criteria

Watch the video: “Should We Demand an End to Drug Patents? It’s Killing You!” In this video, Neal Asbury, host of “Truth for America” joins Thom Hartmann as they discuss a controversial issue—ending the patent protection of pharmaceutical companies for humanitarian reasons. There are strong arguments on both sides.
Discuss the major issues on sacrificing intellectual property rights for humanitarian causes. What is your opinion? Besides viewing the video, feel free to conduct an online search on the topic to collect materials for your answer. Provide those citations in your answer and articulate your argument with facts rather than emotion.

Choose three of the following to answer in your initial post. Be sure to write in complete sentences and proofread your work carefully. If you happen to use any quotes from the text or outside resources (not required here), you must cite them according to MLA standards.
After making your initial post, reply to at least two of your classmates’ posts , but at least one of those MUST BE ON A DIFFERENT QUESTION than you answered.
1. What associations does the word lottery have for you? Are they relevant to the story?
2. Comment on the ending of the first paragraph.
3. On what other occasions might the people of the village gather in the way they do for the lottery? Mr. Summers is in charge of “civic activities.” Is the lottery one of these? Explain.
4. Discuss the degree to which the tradition of the lottery has been kept. Why does no one want to make a new box? Why is the whole institution not abandoned?
5. Examine the character of Tessie Hutchinson. She claims that her fate is not fair. Is there any reason why she should be singled out? Is she a tragic heroine? Consider her cry, “There’s Don and Eva. . . . Make them take their chance!”
6. On your first reading, when did you begin to suspect what happens at the end of the story? How soon might it become evident? What are the most important hints?
7. One reason the ending can surprise a reader is that the villagers never speak directly of what they are about to do.Why not? Are they ashamed? afraid?
8. Comment on the conversation between the Adamses and Old Man Warner. What is the implication of Steve Adams’s last appearance in the story?
9. Does the rhyme “Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon” adequately explain the institution of the lottery? What other reasons might people have for such behavior? What is the social function of a scapegoat?
10. After her family has received the black spot, Tessie complains, but Mrs. Delacroix tells her, “Be a good sport, Tessie.” Comment on this choice of words.
11. Discuss the reaction of the Hutchinson family. Why does the lottery single out a family first and then a victim?
12. Old Man Warner says, “People ain’t the way they used to be.” Are they? What does he mean?
13. Why are the people in such a hurry to “finish”?
14. What is the implication of “someone gave little Davy Hutchinson a few pebbles”?

You are to investigate the types of funds currently available to shipping firms.
Your report should be supported by examples drawn from real shipping companies, and make reference to relevant theories, textbooks, journals and reputable internet sources, in accordance with good academic practices. The latest developments in the financial markets and/or relevant corporate regulations should also be taken into consideration.
You are expected to provide a minimum of one example per funding option identified. Make sure your examples provide current, relevant and complete information (e.g. amount raised, compensation offered, repayment period etc.) without straying off topic. Don’t forget to properly cite your sources. You are meant to study developments in the financial markets – not the shipping markets. Likewise, you are meant to look into regulation that might affect financial institutions or corporate taxation – not IMO regulation and conventions about vessels and their operation. In other words, developments should be addressed only if you can prove that they affect (with evidence and sources) shipping companies’ funding options.

Acting as the reporter, create a questionnaire of ten questions (Five questions for each athlete) based on the athletes you chose to ask questions. These must be good quality questions, that get into the details and intricacies of the particular athlete’s life.
Including things such as family background, diet, training, lifestyle, social issues, wages, goals, accomplishments, etc. The main task here is coming up with solid questions that can really stimulate a good answer.
Questions would have to be formulated to reflect the history of sport and its broader historical methodology.

The Task Pick one of the arguments from our reading packet about how work is changing today, or will change in the coming years. Explain the argument, and what you find interesting about it. Then, do a little research on a career or profession you might be interested in pursuing.
How might it change in coming years, due to technology or any other factor? Do any of the arguments you’ve read in the essay packet for unit 3 apply to this profession? Why or why not?
Interesting Arguments The first thing you’ll need to do is pull out some of the arguments that you thought were interesting in the essays we read for this unit. Let’s start by pulling our three such arguments. For each one, tell me the author’s name, and provide the first few words of a quote, so I’ll know where the argument is coming from. Then, explain what the argument is, and the reasoning behind it in your own words. Finally, explain what you think is interesting about it. A. Interesting Argument #1:
B. Interesting Argument #2:
C. Interesting Argument #3:
Researching a Career Next, you’re going to need to do a little research on a career or job that is interesting to you, to see if it is changing now, during the current pandemic, or is likely to change in the near or distant future. What is a profession or job that you might want to research and write about for this essay? It might be a career you’re considering, or perhaps one that’s always been interesting to you. D. Career or profession or job I might want to focus on:
Now, do a little general research on the question: how might this job change during or after the pandemic, or in the near or distant future? Find two potentially useful articles; read them, and summarize what they say below. Note: I’ve used the term “general research” here. What does that mean? Well, it’s research that helps us to see what kind of info is out there, what people are talking or arguing about. For your purposes, it might just be some intelligent googling. For instance, if I were interested in a career in food services, I might google key words like “food services industry automation problems” (without the quotations, so you get a wider selection of hits). I just tried this and came up with some promising leads – try it! E. Summary of Potentially Useful Article #1:
F. Summary of Potentially Useful Article #2:
Making Connections Finally, the Focus Question above asks, “Do any of the arguments you’ve read in the essay packet for unit 3 apply to this profession? Why or why not?” Let’s make some connections between these writings and your career of interest. First, remind yourself of all the claims that these articles have made about work in the mid-21st century – 30-50 % of jobs being replaced by automation, jobs that have dignity, jobs that Graeber calls “bullshit jobs,” jobs that produce something that helps people or provides them with joy, jobs that will be transformed by tech – and many more. Write a paragraph or so speculating on which of these arguments are relevant for the career you’re writing about – do they apply, or not? How and/or why? My “making connections” paragraph:
