- How will it help you as an early childhood educator in the classroom? List at least two things you will do in the classroom as a result of the information you learned from the resource.
Be sure to include references and weblinks to the three resources you chose. Your essay should be 1500-1750 words and should include at least three (3) citations. The sections should be clearly marked with headings so that your instructor knows which points you are addressing. Follow the guidelines for APA writing style.
