As Early Childhood Educators we are constantly faced with ethical dilemmas. We have to find a balance between what we believe is right and what is being required of us. Consider the following scenario:
Eduardo, age six, has just been assigned to RachelÂ¿s class. Eduardo acts out, hits other children, and screams when he doesnÂ¿t get his own way. In a team meeting, Rachel asks for ideas on how to help guide EduardoÂ¿s behavior. One of RachelÂ¿s colleagues suggests that when he hits another child, she should Â¿ just give him a good whack on the bottom, and heÂ¿ll soon get the message not to hit others.Â¿ Rachel needs to decide how to handle disagreeing with a colleague over the best course of action to follow when dealing with a childÂ¿s behavior problem. She could suggest immediately that giving children Â¿ a good whackÂ¿ is developmentally and culturally inappropriate, or she could talk after the meeting and share her views that she doesnÂ¿t think physical punishment is a way to guide childrenÂ¿s behavior, or she could report her colleague to the central administration, or pursue another course of action.
In a one to two page paper with proper APA format and citations, respond to the questions listed below. Concisely state:
a) What is your stance on parents using corporal punishment?
b) What role do you think teachers need to play in monitoring each other?
c) How much disruption should a teacher and classroom tolerate before disruptive children are removed from the classroom/school?
NB: We do not resell papers. Upon ordering, we do an original paper exclusively for you.
