Fairy Tales in Literature Jane Yolen has chosen to write in the fairy tale genre to help young adults learn about a horrific time in history, the Holocaust. Fairytales are stories that have survived for centuries. The author feels that by retelling the Holocaust in this genre she can help preserve this time in history for years to come. Fairy tales can be used to tell a larger story for example, the fairytale of Briar Rose in and of itself disguised the horrors of the Holocaust. When presented in the manner of a fairy tale the teens and adults can look at the story from a different perspective.
So say if you act out on these attitudes, it could have a bad effect on the children your working with and other children they might know, and you would not want them to copy your own actions in a result. Everyone from child to adult that we may meet on a day to day basis could have a different opinion to mine, and are more than likely will have different values and mind sets. When you are around children of your own or other parents children, you have to be in control of the things you are saying and the actions you are taking, because children can take so much information and tend to copy what an adult says and does, as most children will see there family and other adults as a role model. Like me for example, i act almost the same age as the children i work with, but yet at the same time i act a mature age to show them what they should and should not say and be careful of what i am saying to the children when with them in class. If we go and show bad attitude and show that we are negative to certain people around them.
Difficulty with reading and writing If a child is having problems with reading and writing this could cause concern. This could be recognised, as a child would be at a delayed rate to the rest of his/her peers. This could affect the child’s /young person’s behaviour/social development...Low self esteem and loss of confidence may be a result. With peers of the same being more advanced ridicule and bullying may result Learning to communicate is one of the main skills a child needs to help them develop in all areas. They can quickly fall behind from peers of the same age.
Reading this will better help them connect their history lessons to real life. That is why I believe this book should be taught alongside history lessons pertaining to that point in time. Having this book read in an English class while learning facts about the Dust Bowl in History class will form connections better than just one or the
Poor living conditions, inadequate diet and exercise and quality of life, leading to increased illness. Toys are needed to encourage play, development and stimulation.

Children suffering from this may become frustrated and problems could arise at home or in school, behavioural problems could also be seen, as well as the child becoming unenthusiastic or disliking school. If dyslexia is undetected then this will affect their development at school and could spoil any chance of achievement. Physical disabilities could include: Cerebral palsy; cerebral palsy is a condition which affects the movement, posture and co-ordination of a person.
Reading about the author should tell the authors culture and from where and what time period he or she is from. These simple facts give the reader more insight into the piece of literature. Those facts can determine the nature of the piece as the author would be more inclined to write about his or her own culture, time period, and origin. Different historical periods will give pieces of multicultural literature different meanings. Examples of this are with “Under the Banyan Tree” by R. K. Narayan and “Jewish Christmas” by Faye Moskowitz.
However a practitioner needs to encourage positive behaviour and manage children’s common behaviour. Specific types of unwanted behaviour that should be referred to others: • If pupils are a danger to themselves and/or others • If you are dealing with a difficult situation on your own • If pupils are not carrying out your instructions • If you are not comfortable dealing with a pupil, for example they are behaving in a threatening manner or behaving unpredictably • When an incident is serious enough to warrant the involvement of a senior member of staff, i.e. biting Other behaviour concerns that should be referred outside of the school are ones that interfere with a child's learning. If the child is destroying property, this would also be an area of concern. Other behaviours that could be of concern and interfere with learning could be attention maintenance, hyperactivity, or severe withdrawal.
This can cause conflicts and resistance. For this reason it is very important that social workers, foster parents, and natural parents be sensitive and support the child through the separation process. (Crosson-Tower, 2008, p.351) The transitory nature of the foster care system has been seen as a problem especially for children who already have attachment issues. These moves can create even greater problems. (As cited in Crosson-Tower, 2008, p.351).
.2 How and when is peer pressure harmful? Can it ever be helpful? Why? Peer pressure can be harmful when peers are constantly advising you to do things that are wrong and insinuate that you are not cool or will not be allowed to hang with the “in crowd” because you are doing what they are doing. Many children feel pressured because they want to fit in and do the wrong things just so that they can feel like they are a part of something.
