Part 1

Identify and discuss six values about life and success that you vividly recall learning from your family. For each, explain how the particular value is supported by or at odds with your current community setting; community setting may mean current family framework, school, job, peer group, etc. You will want to refer back to Lesson 1 and 2.

Part 2

To practice lesson planning, create an age appropriate activity for the early childhood aged student. Then, create a section of your lesson plan that describes three strategies that can be implemented to modify/adapt this lesson to meet the needs of dual language learners. Your lesson plan should include a learning objective (what the students will be able to do), materials, a step-by-step guide on how to complete the activity, and a description of the modifications/adaptations. You will want to refer back to Lesson 4.
