Appropriate Behavior Expectations Case Study
[WLOs: 1, 4] [CLOs: 1, 2]
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read the IRIS Center’s Establishing Classroom Norms & Expectations. Within this resource, review the case study labeled “Level A Case 1” and the STAR sheets.    This is the link to it.  http://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/wp-content/uploads/pdf_case_studies/ics_norms.pdf
When you envision the ideal early childhood classroom, you see children working in groups, getting along, demonstrating problem-solving skills, and being totally engaged in the stellar lesson or activity you have created. However, as we all know, that classroom does not just “happen.” It takes a tremendous amount of effort and preparation on the teacher’s part for this harmony to exist. Teachers must let their students know their expectations. This is generally done by teaching the rules of the classroom. In addition to stating the rules and procedures, a teacher must respond to children’s actions both positive and negative in order to demonstrate their expectations. This way, appropriate expected classroom behavior can become the classroom norm, instead of the exception so that you can spend your time engaging with your students in the amazing, creative lessons you have created instead of dealing with negative behavior.
In this assignment, you will create your own expectations for appropriate classroom behavior and utilize a case study to practice creating strategies surrounding norms and expectations.
In your paper,
Identify and describe three expectations for appropriate classroom behavior for young children with examples for each.
Critically analyze Ron’s challenging behaviors to determine contributing factors (as presented in Level A Case 1).
Construct two specific strategies for addressing Ron’s challenging behavior, and describe the implementation plan and desired outcomes.
The Appropriate Behavior Expectations Case Study paper

For further assistance with the formatting and the title page, refer to APA Formatting for Word 2013.

For assistance on writing Introductions & Conclusions as well as Writing a Thesis Statement, refer to the UAGC Writing Center resources.
Must use at least one scholarly sources in addition to the course text.
The Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.

Reading Response: God as ‘Merciful and Gracious’ in Exodus 34:6-7
Overview
We have spent time reading through the books of Genesis and Exodus. You have read the stories of God creating the heavens and the earth, of promising Abraham and Sarah a son, and of blessing them with descendants which would outnumber the stars in the sky. We already see a pattern of God’s benevolence, this desire to bless and give, in all of these stories. You also read of God using his servants Moses, Miriam, and Aaron to rescue the Hebrews from oppressive slavery in Egypt to bring them into the land of Canaan. But there is a very special place we would like to camp out on in Exodus which captures core ideas we will use during our Educators Roundtable discussion this week. That passage is when God gives Moses very specific details about the kind of God he is, how he is to be known and remembered by his people. Watch the following videos about what is meant by the word ‘Grace’ in this passage of Exodus 34:6-7 and follow the instructions below.


Instructions
Summarize the concept of ‘grace’ as presented in the videos.
Connect what you watched in the videos with a relevant section from our required textbook readings this week. Identify and summarize that section from our readings in approximately 300-400 words, to reacquaint me with that specific section from our reading. Note: Your selection cannot be strictly a summary of the videos or a passage of the Bible required to be read this week or related online readings which are not from our required textbooks. Your summary must be from a section in the required textbooks on the syllabus for this week.
Designate an additional 200 to 400 words responding with your insights and/or analysis of how that section of our required reading connects with this idea of God’s kindness, compassion, and grace.
Requirements
You should include at least one and no more than two citations from the book and citations should be no longer than 50 words in length.

Case Study Jose, 7 years old, and his mother live alone in a one-bedroom apartme

Case Study
Jose, 7 years old, and his mother live alone in a one-bedroom apartment close to his school. Most afternoons Jose walks home alone, lets himself into their apartment, and watches television until his mother comes home from work. His favorite after-school snack consists of potato chips and a soda or fruit drink. For dinner, Jose’s mother usually brings something home from a local fast food restaurant because she is “too tired to cook.” She knows this isn’t good for either one of them. Jose’s mother is currently being treated for high blood pressure, and the pediatrician has expressed concern about Jose’s continued weight gain. However, Jose’s mother doesn’t see how she can change anything given her work schedule and limited income.
How would you describe Jose’s short- and long-term health potential?
What concerns would you have about Jose’s safety?
What potential health problems is Jose likely to develop if his current behaviors do not change?
What specific suggestions would you make to Jose’s mother, and how would you share your suggestions in a respectful manner?
