Instead of being safely reunified with their families or moved quickly into adoptive homes many remained in foster homes or institutions for years.
The Child Study data I have gathered comes from the observation I have completed at Mission Bell Elementary School. Mission Bell Elementary School is a local school in Riverside. In the P.M preschool class there are 24 students, one teacher, and one assistant. The child I decided to observe is names Zoe. Zoe is 4 years and 10 months old. I immediately was drawn to Zoe because she had such a big personality, was very social, and smart.

While observing her I had to pay close attention to her biosocial development, motor skills, cognitive skills, communication skills,

There are many ways to approach a service project and approaching it correctly is key to really learning and growing as a person from the experience. Really committing yourself during service is a huge concept in my eyes so one can truly gain the true experience of the project. Understanding the word shalom is critical to learning how shalom and the service learning project connects. The terms and mindset one decides to take and apply to serving will ultimately lead to how much they will grow during their service project.
