ASH SOC 312 Week 2 DQ 2 Self-Regulation
Check this A+ tutorial guideline at
Regardless of a child’s unique qualities, one thing remains the same; to
improve learning and behavior, children must develop strong selfregulation skills. Read the following article from the National
Association for the Education of Young Children NAEYC, “Developing
Young Children’s Self-Regulation Through Everyday Experiences.”
The marshmallow experiment is a famous test conducted by Walter
Mischel at Stanford University and discussed by Daniel Goleman in his
popular work. In the 1960’s, a group of four-year-olds were given a
marshmallow and promised another, only if they could wait 20 minutes
before eating the first one. Some children could wait and others could
not. The researchers then followed the progress of each child into
adolescence, and demonstrated that those with the ability to wait were
better adjusted and more dependable determined via surveys of their
parents and teachers, and scored an average of 210 points higher on the
Scholastic Aptitude Test. Watch the video, Kids Marshmallow
Reflect on the information in the NAEYC article, the video, and your text
and explain how toddlers with better self-regulation skills are less likely
to demonstrate behavior problems in preschool. Explain why these selfregulation skills are so important and how you will promote the learning
of self-regulation. How will you deliberately teach self-regulation as part
of everyday experience? Share an example of your own self-regulation
skills that you can model for others.
Guided Response: Review all of your classmates’ posts and respond to at
least two classmates. Suggest additional ways self-regulation skills are
important. Reflect on the instructional strategies your classmates will
use to teach self-regulation and offer additional strategies that you
believe will work well.
