Hi. I am having trouble with unit 2 q1.a what exactly does it mean explain the differences between sequence of development and rate of development. I can answer this in 2 sentences so how am I meant to do 300 words?! WHAT AM I MISSING???
In section 'a' I explained sequence and rate, talked about holistic development and outlined the five developmental groups (physical, communicative etc). I then took an activity and detailed how elements of development can be seen. My activity was team sports, so physical development would be height, strength, speed, social and moral development would be fair play.
In section 'c' I talked about how being slower than another child or not as tall can affect confidence, how having communication problems may impact on the team, etc. So all children are at differing stages of development but that in itself can cause problems, as a child could be aware of their differences and feel vulnerable or lack confidence.
