The work in EDU692: Creativity Culture and Global Contexts in Education Decision Making

 

I need help with this work it was assigned to someone who couldn't understand how to complete the day it was do so if you hace any question please ask.

 

Question 1

In this discussion, you will apply your knowledge of culturally relevant pedagogy to the development of an evaluation instrument that could be used to examine the degree to which a specific place-based experience implements culturally relevant strategies. You will test your instrument as you evaluate a lesson that addresses an interesting “place-based approach” to instruction. Please review this week’s Instructor Guidance for detailed assistance on preparing for and completing this discussion.

Initial Post: This discussion requires you to construct a single document consisting of four parts. Based on your knowledge of cultural relevancy, develop a basic evaluation instrument that you could use to determine the degree to which an instructional experience incorporates culturally relevant pedagogical principles. Structure your evaluation instrument as a series of five to seven questions, in which each question includes three levels of criteria from which to select. Once you develop your instrument, use it to evaluate one of the place-based lesson “stories” shared on the PromiseofPlace.org. Finally, using the same document complete with data (evidence) from your evaluation of the place-based lesson story, summarize how well you think your selected place-based experience addresses cultural relevance. In addition, describe the characteristics in your instrument that specifically addresses the components of place-based education and cultural relevance presented on the Promises of Place website. The four-part document should include the following components:

 

 

  1. Evaluation instrument (five to seven questions and three levels of criteria).
  2. Evaluation results (use your instrument to evaluate a selected place-based lesson “story”).
  3. Analysis of selected place-based experience regarding cultural relevance.
  4. Analysis of evaluation instrument regarding place-based education components and cultural relevance.

 

Question 2

This discussion asks you to reflect on the importance of valuing equity over equality in the classroom and in life outside the classroom. You will identify examples that illustrate the values of equality versus equity in popular culture (such as advertisements, television shows or movies, and song lyrics). You are asked to reflect on the nature of these two distinct concepts and their importance in education and life outside the classroom.

Initial Post: In this discussion post, identify examples of equity versus equality in popular culture that you might be able to use in a class to help your students understand the value of equity. Create a document that presents clear examples of the differences between equity and equality as depicted in the media. This might include advertisements (pictures), song lyrics, or commercials (linked from Youtube.com, for example). Find at least two examples that illustrate specific differences between the two concepts of equity and equality and clearly explain in your document how the examples illustrate equity versus equality. Try to locate examples that could be used in a class you might teach now or in the future. You can create your document in Microsoft Word or use a Google document and share the link to the document with your post rather than attaching it. 

Next, briefly reflect on the role equity plays in the classroom by explaining how you would use your selected examples to help students understand the differences between equity and equality, and why equity is more important in the classroom. Provide at least two examples of how equity can aid diverse learners in the classroom (e.g., language issues, assessments, grading, instructional needs and accessibility, etc.). Summarize how the underlying principles of culturally relevant instruction contribute to equity in the classroom.
