This activity will allow you to expand your knowledge of developmental stages.
Answer these questions for each of the 4 scenarios on the next few pages. Feel free to read other students responses, and elaborate or respond to previous posts.
4) School-ager Scenario:
You just started working in an afterschool program for 5-8 year olds at a local elementary school. The children are expected to do their homework as soon as they come in afterschool since this is what parents want. You notice that this is a constant struggle with children acting up and complaining (and doing very little actual homework.) Your supervisor asks what you think they should do. What do you think should change and how would you explain your reasons?
