The daily schedule sets the stage for learning opportunities. Frequently the daily schedules are based on curriculum, outdoor schedules, meal schedules and operating hours. It is not always as easy as developing a schedule that would work best for children and adults in the classroom; other factors play a role in the development.
For this discussion, you will develop a daily schedule for one of the scenarios described below and share it with your classmates as well as your answers to reflective questions about the selection and creation of your daily schedule.
Select one of the three scenarios below and build your daily schedule around that situation. Share your daily schedule with your classmates in the discussion area. Include your answers to these three questions when you post your schedule: Why did you select this scenario? What was challenging about the daily schedule you were developing? What is the most important thing that you consider, and why, when you are developing a daily schedule? Post your initial response to this Discussion by the Due Date listed in the Course Schedule. Remember to receive full credit for this discussion you must respond to at least two of your peer’s initial posts by the scheduled due date, and you must post something on three different days by the final day of the discussion. Your Responses to your classmates are substantive, demonstrating mastery of course concepts and furthering dialogue.

Scenario 1: Infant and young toddler classroom that provides full day child care. The program is open from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. Some children start their day at 6:30 am and end their day 5:30 pm. For infants and toddlers not on a bottle, the food program regulations require that meals are at least 3.5 hours apart but not more than 4 hours, and there can be two snacks a day. Children need to be offered at least 30 minutes of outdoor time during the day, and if they spend more than 4.5 hours in the room, they need to be provided with a nap or rest time. Infants should be able to eat and sleep when they are hungry and tired.
Preschool classroom that provides preschool and extended day care. The preschool program starts at 8:00 am and ends at 11:30 am, but if children need extended day care the program opens at 7:00 am and closes 5:00 pm. A bus with children will be arriving at 7:45 am for the preschool program and leaving at 11:30 am. You provide breakfast for both groups of children. The bus leaves before lunch and then children staying for an extended day stay for lunch, rest and then afternoon experiences. Children leave anywhere from 2:00 pm-5:00 pm from the extended day program. You can serve two snacks during the day, and breakfast and lunch need to be at least 3.5 hours apart. You need to schedule at least an hour of outdoor play during the entire day, one small group activity, and one large group activity (this can be a circle time).
Scenario 3: This is a pre-k classroom that is in the local school district’s elementary school building. School starts at 8:15 am and buses that bring children in start arriving at 7:45 am. There is breakfast served in the cafeteria at 8:30 am and then your lunch is scheduled for 12:45pm-1:15pm. The school day ends at 3:15 pm, buses start loading at 3:00 pm. Your scheduled outdoor time is from 12:00 pm-12:30 pm. You also need to provide children with a 30-minute rest period and two snacks. Make sure you have time for free play, small group, and large group opportunities.
You will consider the Elgin Marbles as a case study of cultural heritage and art ethics.
Figure of Iris Figure of Iris from the West Pediment of the Parthenon The Acropolis, Athens, Greece, about 438-432 BC The British Museum. Used with permission. Who is the best conservator of artifacts: museums or the descendants of the people who created them? Is art an integral component in cultural or national identity? In this discussion, we will debate the problems involving the “ownership” of important cultural artifacts. Within a museum collection’s context, these artifacts would be called “material culture.”
First, research Lord Elgin and the Elgin Marble controversy surrounding specific works removed from the Parthenon in Greece. Also visit:
Parthenon Sculptures The Acropolis museum When you are done with your research, answer the following questions in the discussion forum:
Who owns material culture? Should members of specific cultural groups be entitled to art and artifacts that are part of their heritage and identity? Using the example of the Elgin Marbles, explain how our ethics and concerns over maintaining the cultural heritage of “others” has changed over time. Do you agree or disagree with Lord Elgin’s 19th-century collection methods? Should the scholarly value of the works outweigh issues of Greek cultural heritage? Do you think Greece still has a claim on the marbles or not? Defend your position against those students who disagree with you. Research, post and discuss an image of another looted work. Examine the larger ideas within the controversy. Why are original artworks important? If these marbles were stolen, how does this change your idea of the museum? How do you see the role of the museum (past and present) and how are museums evolving to deal with problematic accessions? Provide new insight, examples, and perspectives for those who do not agree with your point of view, and add further information or knowledge to those you agree with. Post two or more replies.
