The importance of Children’s play in their learning and development.
Why is Children’s play in early childhood is important with their learning and development?
Learners must demonstrate the ability to create a literature review and use appropriate grammar and spelling. Workbook 1 must be completed and deemed satisfactory before beginning workbook 2.
1. Identify and justify how your chosen topic links to the NQF – National Quality Framework
2. Annotated bibliography: Review of relevant literature – Find 5 to a maximum of 8 sources of information about your chosen research topic.
These sources must be current, relevant (preferably Australian) and from reputable sources. eg. Government websites, academic papers and journals, published works and peak organisations.
For each source of information document;
• Publication details
• Summary of what is in the article (approximately 2 paragraphs)
• How might this support your topic (approximately 1 paragraph)
3. Identify stakeholders that you can survey about the topic. (Educators of early childhood or the families)
• Your target group will need to be at least 20 people
• Provide a brief explanation about how you will conduct your research and the resources needed.
4. Research methodology: Based on the National Quality Framework – Australia and your literature review, you need to create a survey containing questions about your research topic. Questions will assist you to identify your target group’s needs, beliefs, practices and outcomes in relation to the topic. Within your survey you will need to ensure:
• There is an introduction to the survey introducing yourself and explaining the purpose of the survey
There is a combination of questions – quantitative questions (number questions) and qualitative questions (more in depth, opinion questions).
• Your introduction and questions contain correct spelling and grammar
Dante Alighieri played a critical role in the literature world through his poem Divine Comedy that was written in the 14th century. The poem contains Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. The Inferno is a description of the nine circles of torment that are found on the earth. It depicts the realms of the people that have gone against the spiritual values and who, instead, have chosen bestial appetite, violence, or fraud and malice. The nine circles of hell are limbo, lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. Others are heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Dante’s Inferno in the perspective of its portrayal of God’s image and the justification of hell.
In this epic poem, God is portrayed as a super being guilty of multiple weaknesses including being egotistic, unjust, and hypocritical. Dante, in this poem, depicts God as being more human than divine by challenging God’s omnipotence. Additionally, the manner in which Dante describes Hell is in full contradiction to the morals of God as written in the Bible. When god arranges Hell to flatter Himself, He commits egotism, a sin that is common among human beings (Cheney, 2016). The weakness is depicted in Limbo and on the Gate of Hell where, for instance, God sends those who do not worship Him to Hell. This implies that failure to worship Him is a sin.
God is also depicted as lacking justice in His actions thus removing the godly image. The injustice is portrayed by the manner in which the sodomites and opportunists are treated. The opportunists are subjected to banner chasing in their lives after death followed by being stung by insects and maggots. They are known to having done neither good nor bad during their lifetimes and, therefore, justice could have demanded that they be granted a neutral punishment having lived a neutral life. The sodomites are also punished unfairly by God when Brunetto Lattini is condemned to hell despite being a good leader (Babor, T. F., McGovern, T., & Robaina, K. (2017). While he commited sodomy, God chooses to ignore all the other good deeds that Brunetto did.
Finally, God is also portrayed as being hypocritical in His actions, a sin that further diminishes His godliness and makes Him more human. A case in point is when God condemns the sin of egotism and goes ahead to commit it repeatedly. Proverbs 29:23 states that “arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.” When Slattery condemns Dante’s human state as being weak, doubtful, and limited, he is proving God’s hypocrisy because He is also human (Verdicchio, 2015). The actions of God in Hell as portrayed by Dante are inconsistent with the Biblical literature. Both Dante and God are prone to making mistakes, something common among human beings thus making God more human.
To wrap it up, Dante portrays God is more human since He commits the same sins that humans commit: egotism, hypocrisy, and injustice. Hell is justified as being a destination for victims of the mistakes committed by God. The Hell is presented as being a totally different place as compared to what is written about it in the Bible. As a result, reading through the text gives an image of God who is prone to the very mistakes common to humans thus ripping Him off His lofty status of divine and, instead, making Him a mere human. Whether or not Dante did it intentionally is subject to debate but one thing is clear in the poem: the misconstrued notion of God is revealed to future generations.
