Use the Summative Template(attached) Your supervisor is impressed with your Workshop Proposal at this point and has permitted you to continue working on your proposal. This week you will continue filling out the Summative Template for your Workshop Proposal. Using the Welcome to the Ashford University Multigenerational Center! interactive from Week 1 as a guide, you will describe the space you will use to deliver your workshop. Please be sure to name one of the areas shown in the Week 1 interactive, and explain why this is the ideal space for your workshop. You will include a complete list of all materials necessary to have a successful workshop. Review the rooms and locations from the interactive to determine if specific furniture needs to be included as well. All good presenters prepare for the unexpected. Think about your target audience, and anticipate two possible issues or roadblocks that may arise. Using your background knowledge of your field of study, share two possible solutions for each roadblock. To substantiate your workshop topic and to demonstrate the importance of this topic to your director, review the Professional Standards table for your field of study (included in the course shell). You will choose two of these standards and explain how they represent the objective of your workshop.
- Describe the environment or the space needed to deliver your workshop.
- List the needs and/or supplies for the Workshop.
- Describe two possible roadblocks and two corresponding solutions for each roadblock.
- List two professional standards from your field of study.
- Explain how the two standards support your content.
Use the Summative Template and fill out this section. In the final part of the Workshop Plan, you complete the final two components of the Summative Template. decide which other groups (field of study?) would either benefit from your workshop presentation or could be incorporated somehow. For example, if your field of study is ECE, and you have created a workshop for preschool students to learn specific yoga poses, ask yourself how you could include one of the senior groups that meet at the center as well. The best workshops are those that keep teaching. Think of the positive relationships this could foster! In addition, you will include two strategies (using your text as a guide) to deliver the workshop objective.
- Partnerships: Identify which groups at the Multigenerational Center could also benefit from the workshop. (Before, during, or after the workshop.)
- Strategies: Identify two strategies to deliver your workshop.
The Template Assignment:
- Must be at least three pages in length (not including the title, reference, and flyer pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. (Links to an external site.)
- Must include a separate title page with the following

Part 1A: Workshop Details
Title “Promoting Proper Cognitive Development in Children.”
Explanation Parents will work with their children using “Piaget’s theory of cognitive
development to ensure that the young ones can adequately gain meaning
and knowledge from experience and information” (Beilin & Pufall,
2013). According to Magnuson and Starr (2000), the early stages of a
child’s life are essential to their development. Consequently, parents
should be heavily invested in ensuring their young ones develop
necessary cognitive abilities as early as possible. As humans age, the
ability of their brains to easily adapt to change gradually reduces.
Therefore, the early years of a person are crucial to their development
and future success in life.
Objective/Purpose The objective of the workshop is for the attending parents to learn
various activities that can promote proper cognitive development in
their children. Comprehending the various phases of cognitive
development is challenging. It is vital to involve children in activities,
which push them to apply the lessons they have gained, in addition to
help them innovate ways of synthesizing the information they receive.
There are various evidence-based activities, which have been proven to
promote an active approach to learning about the core phases of
cognitive development. Parents can learn how to offer their children

diverse techniques to experiment and explore their environments. The
experiences gained by the children will aid in their comprehension of
various concepts in a practical manner.
Target Audience The target audience consists of parents with young children. This target
audience requires assistance in learning about ways to promote their
children’s cognitive development.
Theory The theory selected is Piaget’s Theory of cognitive development. This
theory asserts that the intellectual development of children occurs in
four stages: “sensorimotor, preoperational, concrete operational, and
formal operational” (Stagnitti & Unsworth, 2000). During these phases,
the children master various skills gradually. They do not develop all
skills at once. In some instances, they fail to master any skills at all. The
stages described by Piaget occur from birth to young adulthood. The
sensorimotor stage occurs from birth to 24 months old with the
objective of getting object permanence (Beilin & Pufall, 2013). The
preoperational stage occurs from 2 to 7 years old with the objective of
getting symbolic thought. The concrete operational stage occurs from 7
to 11 years old with the objective of getting operational thought. Finally,
the formal operational stage occurs from adolescence to adulthood with
the objective of understanding abstract concepts (Beilin & Pufall, 2013).
This theory supports the content choice by ensuring that parents are
familiar with the natural progress of the acquisition of skills. Many

parents that lack this concept tend to rush their children to develop
certain skills (Stagnitti & Unsworth, 2000). This can leave them
frustrated at their children’s apparent lack of progress. In other cases,
some children may require extra help in developing their skills and this
theory provides techniques for doing so. For children with learning
disabilities, this theory allows their parents to recognize their problems
early on and enroll them in the appropriate learning institutions to cater
to their needs.
