Include All Children in an Early Childhood Classroom

Feeling included in a classroom is so important to a child’s self-concept development and ability to learn and thrive. Early childhood teachers, through observation, can see which children are feeling included and which children are feeling excluded. For this assignment, you first review the resources for the week, which shows a culturally and linguistically diverse classroom. Then, respond to the following assignment instructions in a well, organized, thoughtful and complete paper: Select four types of diversity listed below (preferable diversity characteristics with which you are not familiar).
