Brain DevelopmentBrain-based education suggests that physical exercise is important for brain development. Research has shown that in addition to physical exercise, other activities focus on stimulating the social development and intellectual development of young children.Gerry, who is still incapable of jumping with both feet, may not be invited to join in a game of jump rope. This is an example of how a childs individual characteristics (motor skills in this case) can affect context (social environment) and influence development (LeFrancois, 2012). Reflect back on your own development as a child, or on the development of a child you know, and provide an example of how individual characteristics affected development. Using the text and other scholarly resources, provide some suggested activities or strategies that would provide the necessary support to enhance the affected development. For example, Gerrys teacher notices she is being excluded from the game of jump rope and intervenes by showing Gerry how to twirl the rope. Gerry is now included socially, despite her delayed motor development.I knew a child who was very small for his age, he was short and didnt weigh as much as other children his age. This characteristic affected the development of the child when he attended Junior High School and began to have interests in playing sports. Because of his size, many thought that he couldnt participate in football, a contact sport that would require for the child to be exposed to much bigger children and potentially be hit or have to hit these other children on the field. Although it was mandatory to allow all kids to try out for the team, only the kids that the coach thought were the best could make the A team while others would play on the B team. The A team was the real team and the B team was akin to the practice squad and kids that were on the B team understood fully how they were considered second tier. This childs development could have been hampered and he could have developed a negative perspective throughout life because of his size if not for the coach/teacher who was able to enhance this students cognitive and physical development. The coach was keen to inform the child that he didnt care about the childs size but only about his performance. If the child could compete, give his best in practice, and show his ability, the child could easily make the A team and start for the football team. This coach/teacher imparted in the child the wisdom and instructional methodology to overcome any physical obstacles by appropriating a persons other attributes and skills that can ensure that the child will excel and prevail. The child did indeed prevail and not only made the A team but became the starting receiver and cornerback for the football team. The strategy that was utilized was that a teacher/coach should ensure that children understand their physical limitations dont limit their potential if they choose to work hard and apply themselves for success. This child went on to start for the A team the next year as well, and when the child graduating from Junior High School to High School experiencing the same situation of being much smaller than other children, he had the confidence and understanding that his physical size wouldnt limit his potential to play High School football in the state of Texas. This student, whose size was considerably smaller than other children his age, also was a starter in his Freshman year of High School in the same positions that he played previously in Junior High School, the child actually played briefly as a running back for the A team when the leading running backs were hurt.The importance of this summary and real life story is that teachers should instruct into children the belief that they can do anything their minds set them forth to do despite their limitations physically or mentally.
