Module 01 Course Project – Introduction

See the Module 01 Course Project – Introduction for a description of requirements for your case study.

In this project, you will be completing a case study. You will select one case from the three provided and answer the question at the end of each study. (stated below was my chosen one) You will need to conduct research in the Rasmussen Library and use some of the suggested resources below to aid you in supporting the child and family in your chosen case.

Positive Behavior Support

Case Study C:

Darrin, a four-year-old boy, has recently joined your classroom. His mom reports, “He can be a handful,” but his behavior is nothing like you’ve seen before. Darrin swears frequently at teachers and classmates, states he’s going to “kill you and bury you in the back yard,” and is so aggressive that the other children are afraid of him. You have started tracking Darrin’s behavior to see if you can determine the function of his behavior, but you just can’t seem to find a pattern.

How can you support Darrin and his mom?

Your final Case Study submission is both a paper and a corresponding Power Point.

Your final paper must be 5 – 7 pages long. It should demonstrate a strong case for how you would support this child and family. Remember your role is not to diagnose this child. Instead, your role is to indicate how you, as the child’s early childhood teacher, will support this child in your classroom and this child’s family. Your work must be supported by research from at least 5 different sources, one of which must be from the Rasmussen Library. Include both in-text citations and a References page in APA format.

The Power Point is a representation of your paper and should include the same information, but in this visual format as if you are presenting to an audience of your colleagues.You should have 7-10 slides. Please construct your PowerPoint with a notes section which details what you would say if you were presenting orally and the research behind your slides. Include citations on your slides in APA format corresponding to your Reference page from your paper.
