Instructions
Critical thinking helps us learn, develop new ideas, and formulate theories. “Critical thinking” has been defined as “self-guided, self-disciplined thinking which attempts to reason at the highest level of quality in a fair-minded way” (The Foundation for Critical Thinking website).
Sometimes artists use drawing as a visual process of critical thinking, allowing them to see their subject from copious perspectives within numerous contexts. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the Renaissance era drawings of artists like Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo, or in the nature studies of Albrecht Dürer. Critical thinking can also be found in the schematic and preliminary drawings of modern artists, including sculptors and architects.
Step 1: Research
Using the CCCOnline Library Art Research Guide and sources, the sites listed below, or comparable sites, research Renaissance drawings as a basis for your essay. Major artists of the Renaissance produced large quantities of “cartoons”—sketches used as studies for larger works. Although these drawings were not usually considered art at the time, many did survive and are now proudly exhibited in museum collections.
Recommended Research Sources:
The Smithsonian American Museum of Art
Metropolitan Museum of Art, Materials and Function
Metropolitan Museum of Art, Albrect Durer
Studies for the Sistine Chapel Frescoes
Art History Blogger
Blogs are not typically considered scholarly or professional publications since there is no professional or academic peer review. Anyone can publish a blog, irregardless of his or her credentials and with or without proofreading and editing. However, after careful review by subject-matter experts, this blog is considered to be of the quality required for scholarly publication. Carol Hendricks, the author/publisher, is an art museum professional with a masters degree in Art History, and the content appears accurate and professionally written.
Step 2: Writing
Essay (800 – 1200 Words)
First, insert an image file of the Renaissance preparatory drawing you have chosen to write about. Review the information regarding “thesis statements” in Module 1 Read/View resource, Writing Skills Development: Developing a Thesis Statement. In your thesis statement, identify the artist who created the drawing, the subject of the drawing, and explain how the artist is using the art as part of their critical thinking process.
In your essay’s body paragraphs, explain what the artist was studying. Begin your draft by considering the following questions:
What did this artist hope to accomplish?
Were preliminary sketches a normal part of the artist’s process?
How did other perspectives and contexts affect their subject matter, technique, concept, etc.?
Give a specific example from your chosen image to support your statement.
Conclude by explaining why critical thinking furthers this artist’s studies, plans, and goals, and how drawing aids them in this process.

Responsive Routines
Adapted from CFESL The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning Vanderbilt University ​vanderbilt.edu/csefel
Routines are the everyday experiences that infants and toddlers experience in our care—feeding, sleeping and diapering. Because they happen regularly, they can seem boring or sometimes “rote” and impersonal. But we miss a great opportunity to respond and connect to the children when this is the case. For this assignment, you are to learn the difference between routine caregiving and responsive caregiving during daily routines. And then, reflect on some responsive routines and why they are considered best practices.
Below you will find a descriiption of a “best practice” during a daily routine. It is bold and in italics. Reflect on why this is considered “best” practice (or maybe you’ve never thought about or disagree). Write down “what I think now.” Next search in our DAP book under “The Infant Years” and “The Toddler Years” for what research says about this practice. Then write down your new thoughts or ideas based on what you’ve learned on a separate piece of paper.
​Note: Some of these routines reference both infants and toddlers. You may choose either age per question—just make sure you have a mix of the 2 ages when you are finished. There are 12 examples—you may choose 3.
One basic premise of Responsive Daily Routines is Primary Care and Continuity of Care. First, answer this question:
1. An important foundational piece of Responsive Caregiving is providing Primary Care. What is this? Why would this be important when we look at responding to young children in their daily routines? What is continuity of care—how is it different than primary care?
2. Implement a flexible routine (eating, sleeping, inside-outside) so that toddlers learn to predict and the schedule should follow each infant’s and toddler’s need for feeding and sleeping
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
3. Provide a private place for family members to feed an infant, if the family desires. For older children, welcome families to eat with them.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
4. Ask families about their cultural and family preferences for the child’s eating habits, needs, and food preferences.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
5. Sit with toddlers for eating rather than hovering above, getting cots ready for nap, or running around waiting on them. Use feeding time for infants as an opportunity for emotional connections between the adult and child. Infants are held when they have a bottle—even those who can hold the bottle themselves.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
6. Provide opportunities for toddlers to begin to serve themselves, pour milk out of a small pitcher, and clean the table with a sponge. Accept accidents and sensual explorations of food as part of the learning process
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
7. Make diapering a special time for adults to be emotionally present with children, following their cues. Use diapering/toileting times as opportunities for emotional connections between adults and children.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
8. Use encouraging and positive words at all times (not “you’re stinky” or “this is gross!”) when talking about diapering and pottying.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
9. Encourage children to participate in the pottying routine (stand and pull up their own pants, etc.)
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
10. Gently rock or pat infants who need help to get to sleep. Watch and listen for them to signal when they want to be picked up from a crib and respond positively and quickly to their signals
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
11. Plan and implement a transition time from play to sleep with a predictable sequence for toddlers. To build positive relationships read stories, talk gently, and/or pat a child gently to sleep according to the child’s needs. Toddlers may pick a special book or have their own stuffed toy or blanket if needed.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
12. Greet each infant and toddler and his/her family member(s) warmly in the morning to assist in the transition from home to the child care center/home and to give family members a chance to communicate needs, priorities and concerns. Use transition routines as opportunities to build emotional connections between the child and his/her family, the teacher and child, and between and among peers.
a. What I think now:
b. Write down your new thoughts and discoveries. Include DAP book page and quote.
