adopting a strengths-based approach as foundational to developing effective practices and programs. This approach begins with valuing and celebrating individual qualities and characteristics that make each individual unique. For this week's Application Assignment, put yourself in the role of a professional who is working to advocate for adopting a strengths- based model for working with individual children in early childhood settings. Your overall goal is to engender positive attitudes towards children's unique qualities. The focus of your advocacy is educating early childhood professionals about the strengths of cultural and linguistically diverse populations. To complete this Application Assignment, review the examples of strengths- based models provided in the Required Resources. In addition, review "Responding to Linguistic and Cultural Diversity." Based on this information, develop your own definition of strengths-based as it applies to culturally and linguistically diverse populations and then create a visual presentation with PowerPoint to educate others about this perspective.
