Anti Bias

Anti Bias

The context in which early childhood programs operate today is characterized by ongoing discussion between parents, teachers, and the research community about how best to teach young children and what sort of practice is most likely to contribute to their development and learning. Recent studies show that many teachers who say they believe in developmentally appropriate practice do not have developmentally appropriate classrooms. Studies also indicate that teachers who receive in-service training on developmentally appropriate practices via workshops, site visits, and journal reflections reported a greater tendency to use these practices in the classroom.
There is no singular formula for developmentally appropriate practice. Rather, teachers use these strategies to make day-to-day decisions based on the individual children, their families, and the social and culture context.

Fall of Roman Empire

The fall of the Roman Empire

The Roman Empire fell because of political weakness, but this was not the only factor involved. The Roman Empire stood in great power for many decades. Rome was considered the center of civilization for years. Even though it attracted many invaders, the city was well protected by its surrounding walls and powerful army. Some people believed that the Roman Empire would last forever.
Under the rule of Diocletian and later Constantine, the empire was split into Western and Eastern parts of Rome. The emperors said that the reason for this was to make it easier to govern. The emperor chose to govern and build the capital in the Eastern part and gave the Western part to a co-emperor. The reason for that might have been that the Eastern part was much richer in resources and had better lands for farming. There may have been other reasons for that such as the Eastern part did not produce enough food for both parts of the empire and by separating them they?d
