Culturally Relevant, Developmentally Appropriate Lesson Plan
Early childhood educators and administrators play an important role in the development of culturally relevant, developmentally appropriate curricula. As discussed in Chapter 3, the concept of culturally relevant, anti-bias instruction includes planning lessons that are relevant to the children and families in your program. For inspiration, read the article Reading Your Way to a Culturally Responsive Classroom (Links to an external site.). Using the required Lesson Plan Template (Links to an external site.), create two multicultural lessons that you could conduct as an early childhood professional based on the developmental level of your choice:
- Infant/toddler (must be activity-based)
- Preschool (can be literature- or activity-based)
- Early elementary (must be literature-based)
It is required that you use the Lesson Plan Template to complete this portion of your assignment. It is suggested that you utilize the Early Childhood and Child Development: Lesson Plan Handbook downloadas a guide for how to effectively plan this lesson.
