8085 Assignment 3: Project Reflection
As you grow as a leader, you will continue to explore and develop your sense of responsibility to children, families, the community, and the early childhood field. In this course, you began your exploration of leadership with an introduction to theory and skills. You also explored how personal and field-based ethics and principles informed ongoing commitments to, and interactions with, the field. In the context of advocacy and social change, who we are as leaders and how we chose to move the field forward can have a significant impact on where the field is in the long and short term.
In the final week of this course, you are challenged to reflect on your Advocacy Action Plan and consider how the plan you developed reflects your ethics statement, your leadership principles, and extends opportunities for positive social change for children, families, your community/organization, and the early childhood field.
Consider the advocacy action Plan you developed and submitted. Reflect on the ethics and leadership principles statement you developed during Module 2 Discussion 1, as well as Module 3 Assignments 1 and 2. Consider the capacity of leaders to act in ways that reflect and support social justice as presented in the Learning Resources.
