In the Week 5 Case Study: Dispositions/Closure, we learn that the parents of Mrs. Ashland’s student nominate her for Golden Apple Award. In their nominations the parents express what she has done for their child and each child’s storyline is wrapped up through these explanations.
After reading Week Five Case Study, imagine you are a judge on the panel who determines which teachers receive the Channel 6 Golden Apple Award. As you do with each submission you receive, you need to analyze the letter you received about Mrs. Ashland using the dispositions of effective early childhood educators (Chapter 9) and NAEYC’s Statement of Commitment to determine if she possesses the necessary qualities to receive the award. Defend your position to recommend or decline Mrs. Ashland for this award by clearly identifying which dispositions she does or does not possesses and whether or not she displays the characteristics stated in NAEYC’s Statement of Commitment.
