A short reflective essay examining practice in relation to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1200 – 1400) (30%) Critical and reflective thinking are part of this process. This part of Assignment 1 requires you to think more deeply about children′s right to play. What is the ″right to play″? Why is it an important right to protect and enact in early childhood education and care? Draw on your readings to reflect upon the practices and / or policies of your early childhood service in relation to the right to play. In your discussion, give examples of how you think children′s right to play is respected in your service and ways that you think this could be improved. Explain why you think these are good or poor examples. Please refer to the Right to Play booklet; ACECQA′s Guide to the Quality Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and any other material as appropriate, to guide your thinking. In your essay you must: • Link the right to play to the UNCRC • Explain why the right to play is important. • Look for examples of practices/ policies in your setting where you can see these rights enacted or where you think practices could be improved. Make sure you consider these examples in the light of identified readings. • Discuss these examples in your essay. In your discussion explain why you think these are examples of good or poor practice. • Make sure your essay starts with an introduction and ends with a conclusion. • When you have all the parts of your essay in place, proofread your essay by reading it aloud. This can help as you can then hear any grammatical errors and see if the discussion flows logically as a whole. Include interlinking sentences (see the essay template on the Interact2 menu and/or use the PEAL paragraph structure (see http://student.csu.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/2743045/Introduction-to-Essay-Writing-workshop-presentation.pdf) to ensure the discussion flows logically from beginning to end.
