Suggested Responses: Students' responses should include an understanding of multicultural issues in contemporary classrooms. An example would be determining the use of English as a second language among the students in his/her class and then identifying which parents would benefit from English language support. Another contemporary issue is the inclusion of children with special needs in the early childhood classroom. A child with a specific muscular development delay may need resources beyond what is provided by the school. A teacher might advocate for the child's family by securing information on state and federal funds available for children with this particular disability. Other child advocacy issues would include homeless children, children in poverty, and children with abusive home environments. All of these issues would require an effective teacher's advocacy involvement. Strategies for child advocacy could include writing letters to appropriate community, state, or federal agencies; holding workshops for parents with English as second language and securing a community resource person to work with these parents in job applications or obtaining a GED; identifying medical resources within the community; forming a teacher advocacy group within the school to address curriculum needs for children with limited English backgrounds; inviting a local representative to visit the classrooms to see firsthand the challenges of serving children with special needs.
