Many psychologists and educators have formulated theories based on scientific evidence and research to help you better understand how children development. Unfortunately, there have been many popular myths that have also influenced current educational practices.

    1. Find one source showing positive impacts of this ‘event’ and one that shows a negative impact of the event.
  2. Then, choose at least four myths in early childhood or early childhood education that you feel affect current teaching practices. Use the resource book for this course: Great myths of child development. Skim the title page and choose myths that sound interesting to you or that you feel have interfered with your work in early childhood education.
