For this assignment, you will be creating a draft of your Written Proposal for your final presentation. The focus of this draft to is to present as clear a picture as possible of your Written Proposal so that you may receive feedback which will guide you as you create your presentation in Week Five. Completing a comprehensive draft this week will allow you to concentrate your efforts in Weeks Four and Five on the creation of the presentation, with minor adjustments to the written portion, thus splitting the work into more manageable portions. Please refer to the Final Project guidelines for more information on the Final Project as you prepare the draft of your proposal.
In the Written Proposal draft, you will be creating a script in which you identify and describe at least two weekly activities for each age group that address their physical, cognitive and psychosocial developmental needs. All three domains of development must be addressed within your activities. For example, you may have one activity which enhances cognitive and psychosocial development and a second activity which enhances physical development. In addition to identifying these activities, you will demonstrate a foundational knowledge of children’s developmental continuum by explaining your reasoning for choosing each activity in each age group, based on your analysis of theory and current child development research.
Additionally, you will go “shopping” for at least one age-appropriate game, toy, picture, or other “play” item for the activities in each age group. Keep in mind that this may include things like art, music, technology, or safety tools as you deem fit. For each item that you propose, you will provide a link to a website from which the item can be purchased by the city, as well as an explanation for why the city should purchase the item informed by research and theory.

The headings in bold and the outline formatting with numbers and letters should not be altered.
