Learning for Early childhood education Age 3-5

This assignment serves as a compilation of influential works you have read/viewed over the thirteen week period.  A bibliography, personal summary and analysis of the chosen literature and readings that helped shaped your course learning is required. 
The intention is to keep a running list of the books, various text, readings, supplemental literature you have found along the way that has influenced further thought and excitements. Look at the curation holistically and then look for connections with your personal and educational environments as well as with the course content.  
In sum, you are creating a written reflection on your collection and the curation process as a whole, weaving in your key learnings. 
• What do you notice?
• What connections have you made?
• How have you interacted with the literature? Which was most influential?
• What?, So What, Now what?
*remember the repertoire is vast here: readings, videos, blogs, picture books, other classmates suggestions, children’s work, childhood or personal books, graphica, informational books, poetry. However, it should have been discussed or discovered during the thirteen weeks, not newly listed for the sake of this assignment. 
 If this assignment is left to the end, it may be a big task. It is best to work on it throughout the course by keeping a running list and a few notes as you make connections.  Synthesis and reflection can be done sufficiently within a 2-4 page reflective piece and the number of works need not exceed 20 in your bibliography.  The bibliography does not have to be annotated.
