Many resources are available to help us continue to develop our
knowledge of language acquisition. As professionals, you will need to
identify and evaluate the resources available to you. Please spend some
time evaluating professional resources linked to language acquisition.
For this discussion, choose a specific language acquisition topic to
explore further. Several examples include our previous topics of
bilingualism, communication disorders, language developmental stages,
brain research, supportive language acquisition practices, family
support of language acquisition, etc. Write the topic you explored in
the subject line of your discussion post. Then, provide three sources
that can be used to learn more about this topic. Your sources may
include a journal article, webpage, video, research, podcast, etc.
Include links where appropriate, and be sure to cite all sources in APA
Your 300-350 word post should include the following for each selected source:
- Summary of the resource
- How it supports language acquisition in children
- How you will use it specifically for your future professional role
- An APA-formatted reference of the source so your peers can access and review it
When you submit your assignments each week, they will be returned to you
with specific feedback. This feedback should be used to revise the
assignment for the Final Project. Please make the necessary corrections
and apply them to your Final Project, which is due in Week Five.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’
posts and respond to at least two of your peers’ posts. Select posts
that provide sources you can connect with and may be able to use in your
future professional role. Your responses should be a minimum of 100
words and include how the source will specifically benefit you in your
future professional role.
