West Los Angeles College Child Development DAP Discussion
I’m working on a english discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
In Chapter 11, we learn about developmentally appropriate practice (DAP), one of the most important elements in CD 02.
Please view the video below (referenced on page 294 of your textbook) and read the NAEYC article discussing the guidelines for DAP in action.
Then, you will do the following
1. Define in your own words, what is developmentally appropriate practice?
2. Why is it important as it pertains to child development?
3. Explain how art can be a developmentally appropriate way to help children cope with trauma (you can reference the example on page 296 of the text, or provide one of your own).
