Week 1 Discussion

For your initial post, create a poster for an early childhood education setting that welcomes families into a diverse environment.  This poster should communicate that your early childhood education environment supports diversity for every child and family.

Through the use of words and graphic images, the poster should communicate or evoke the following items:

The purpose and importance in early childhood education of a working knowledge of cultural diversity

An example from lived experience of the above

One or more strategies that early childhood professionals can utilize in their environments to foster success with diverse children and families

Some notion of how this strategy or strategies can enhance teaching and leadership in an early childhood education environment.

Attach the poster to your discussion and then explain how your poster communicates each of the above points.

Your strategies should be supported by details that are factual, relevant, and credible.  Be as creative as you wish with your poster using pictures and visuals.
