If you need more guidance for writing a summary, please take time to look at the resources in module that have been provided to help you.
After you complete your summary, write a personal response to the article. Answer the following questions in a essay format: a) Can you connect the topic or ideas to any of your own personal, lived experiences?; b) Does it build on knowledge you already had or is it new information for you?; c)What does it make you think more deeply about?; d) What does it make you question or wonder?; e) How could you use what you have read in your future practices or your current daily work with young children in the classroom.
