Concrete poetry is a type of poetry in which the words of a poem are given a visual representation

Concrete poetry is a type of poetry in which the words of a poem are given a visual representation in the shape of the poem itself. The visual shapes of the poems are just as important in conveying the intended effect as the poem’s content, such as meaning, words, rhythm, rhyme, etc. The term “concrete poetry” was coined in the 1950s by Brazilian poets and its principle tenet is that using words as part of a specific visual work allows for the words themselves to become part of the poetry, rather than just unseen vehicles for ideas. Concrete poems have been created based on the shapes of stars, cats, apples, trees, candles, faces, and many other shapes. The words or content that create each shape align with the shape itself. For example, the shape of an airplane is created with associated content, ascending into the sky. The words that make the airplane outline state, “a flick, a shudder to soar, a push–the nose, the wings held high and steady–the plane is ready to touch the sky.”

As our textbook mentions, poetry can foster creativity. Concrete poetry is particularly effective in early childhood education because it merges the two most important elements of children’s literature: content/narrative and illustration.

Your assignment in this module is to send home a concrete poetry assignment (including directions and a sample poem) for your early childhood classroom. In this mock assignment, the student and his/her parent/guardian will create a concrete poem using/tracing the outline of one of each of their hands. The child and family member must describe how they use their hands, what they like about their hands, and/or why hands are important. Once you complete your directions to send home with a child and your sample hand poem to be attached to these directions, you will ask a friend/family member (preferably one with a child) to complete the second page as if they were your student and parent. Then, you will scan both pages and attach them online for grade submission. Have fun and be creative!

Please review the following templates for this assignment; each template is numbered. You may use these templates as your own documents or create something similar.

You may also wish to print the assignment instructions:

On page 1, clearly type or hand write directions to the parents and students, defining concrete poetry and outlining the project (stay positive, write in letter format, and write clearly on half of the horizontal page). Also, you may use phrases from the descriiption above or below when defining concrete poetry in your directions.
On page 2, create a sample “hand poem” that you have completed with the outline of your own hand on the other half of the horizontal page. You may write and/or draw inside your hand, around the edges, in the fingers, etc. It may rhyme or not. There are no limits with concrete poetry! Be creative so you will inspire the student and his/her parent to be creative!
Page 3 will be a completed set of “hand poems” by a parent/guardian and child. Please prep the horizontal space for the parent/guardian as if you would really send this home by labeling the spaces, drawing a line down the center, etc. Although this may be a friend and his/her child, please imagine this is your student and his/her parent/guardian.
Upload both complete documents.

Post one ES

I think what I personally found so meaningful was the week we talked about one culture and two mental illness. I think these are subjects that are so important when working with so many different families. We are going to meet so many different kinds of people and being educated and respectful is so important. I think if we focus on these things and make sure we understand the best we can then we can truly make impacts on so many families. I thinking knowing peoples history and background helps you treat and form a better care plan for them. We should make sure that we are truly learning about our patient because every single patient we meet will be different from the last. I think that’s what makes our job as health care works so interesting but also very challenging. This course made me so excited to really get out there into the field.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

There are many views about how children develop have been put forth by theorists. I found that newer ideas describe the stages of a child’s development and specify the usual periods during which these growth stages take place. Among the most significant being was what I learned in week 3’s lesson on Parental Influence on Development. Specifically on the Attachment Theory. Familial security in the early stages is of a dependent type and forms a basis from which the individual can work out gradually, forming new skills and interests in other fields. Where familial security is lacking, the individual is handicapped by the lack of what might be called a secure base from which to work (Salter, 40, p. 45, as cited in Bretherton, 1992). Essentially, in her dissertation, Ainsworth acknowledged the connection between parent-child relationships and child development. If the parent-child relationship is characterized by parental sensitivity and awareness, then the child tends to be more secure. The extent of this connection was further conceptualized as Ainsworth conducted years of empirical research, as well as through collaborations with Bowlby and other attachment researchers (Bretherton, 1992).


Understanding that attachment is an emotional feeling that occurs between two people as they begin to bond and seek closeness to another to feel secure. The first feeling of attachment a person experience is when they are born, they are attached to their mother or in some cases adopted caregivers because the caregiver’s lookout for the newborn’s needs. This provides the babies a sense of secureness and this starts the beginning of trust between the baby’s and the primary caregiver that will be a crucial part of the baby’s milestone development throughout their early childhood and beyond. I consider this material to be the most meaningful to me as I feel it was the most relatable subject. However, there were many assignments and material covered I found beneficial. I truly enjoyed taking this class and learning about child development. Thank you Dr. Hudson and my fellow classmates for the positive interaction and for the amazing experience! I wish you all the best of luck and have a great week 8!

Hello class, 

This course has been very nurturing and made me realize how health conditions affects a mental health in a child and the development. As a mother it helped me first of all value and prioritize the importance of mental health in my child since it is a crucial factor in her development and will define her as an adult. It is impressive the importance of culture in a child development and how it affects their decisions as they grow up as well as the treatment options when they face a health issue. The relationship we build with our children will help them define themselves as they grow up and be able to face the issues in a healthy way without putting any limits in the interactions they have with others but let them build healthy boundaries within the relationships they build and a personal identity. I also learned how development and milestones are crucial when defining a child’s development stage and it can be affected by the disorders.

Week 3 Group Exercise Instructions: Review the following tort scenario and discuss

Week 3 Group Exercise

Instructions: Review the following tort scenario and discuss responses to each of the questions. Please explain your responses in your group response. In preparing your responses, think about identifying the rule (legal test) and each of its elements/factors; the source of the rule (i.e. from which case(s) is the rule derived); and the apply the facts of the scenario to the case.

Bob MacDonald owns and operates a farm located on the outskirts of Waterloo, Ontario. The farm is located in an area that has been rural in nature. There are numerous other farms in the area. However, in the last ten years a new residential neighbourhood consisting of about 50 houses has been built adjacent to the farm.

The MacDonald farm grows crops and has recently started to raise livestock, pigs and cows. The livestock operation includes a liquid animal waste storage pond. The farm has operated for over 80 years without complaints, but recently residents in the adjacent residential neighbourhood have raised concerns regarding some of the farm activities. In particular, the residents note that the livestock operation has resulted in strong odours coming from animal waste storage pond. They indicate that the smells are so severe that the residents are required to close their windows on and they cannot use their backyards. The residents, however, do concede that the severity of the smells varies over time and much of the time the smells are less severe. MacDonald has indicated that farms are a crucial part of the Ontario economy and are necessary to provide local sources of food.

A group of neighbours wants to bring a legal action to prevent MacDonald causing further odours from the livestock operation.

What remedy would the neighbours ask the court to grant in order to get the relief that they seek?

Advise whether the neighbours have a valid claim in private nuisance against MacDonald arising from the disturbances to their residences and assess whether the claim is likely to succeed.

Who has the onus of proof in a claim such as this? What is the standard (burden) of proof for such a claim?

Does the fact that MacDonald’s farm was in existence before the houses were built, and that the purchasers of those houses knew or ought to have known about the smells associated with farming provide a defence for MacDonald?

Would the neighbours be able to bring a successful claim in trespass in relation to the odours?

One of the neighbours, Patricia Grier, has a severe allergy to livestock. The result is that she has been unable to use her outdoor areas on her property at all since MacDonald began raising livestock.

Advise whether you think Patricia Grier would be successful in asking the court to award damages based on the interference to her use and enjoyment of property caused by the presence of livestock on the MacDonald farm.

As part of his farm operation, MacDonald must maintain farm machinery, which requires him to store industrial cleaners and used oil in a shed on his property. These substances are toxic and as a result are stored in secure barrels and the shed is locked. On September 15th, some teenagers broke into the shed, which is located away from the farmhouse, but immediate next to a residential property owned by John McIntyre. The teenagers vandalized the barrels causing the toxic substances to be released and to contaminate the McIntyre’s yard and an adjacent steam. The stream is an important habitat for a rare species of fish.

Could McIntyre bring a successful action against MacDonald even if it were determined that MacDonald was without fault in the release of the toxic substances. Explain.
