Mr. Jones a high
school social studies teacher allocates twenty-five percent of his class
grade on student participation. He believes that class discussion is
one of the most important parts of his class and that students must be
encouraged to participate. He also believes that students must be
recognized for their “good work” which often equates to their oral or
class contributions. This semester Mr. Jones has a student with a
pronounced stutter, another student who has just arrived to the United
States from Bolivia and is learning English. Another student in Mr.
Jones’ class is extremely shy and does not want to be the center of
attention in any setting. Mr. Jones likes to call on students who are
not volunteering during class in an effort to encourage them to speak up
and meaningfully participate. The students who are not participating
feel uncomfortable and are becoming increasingly alienated from the rest
of the class. Grading for these students is also a significant factor.
Based on this fictitious scenario, you are to write a three- to
four-page paper that addresses the role and responsibility of Mr. Jones.
Using the discussions, reading, video, and learning thus far in this
course, substantively respond to the following sections:
Equitable Grading Issues: What considerations might need to be made for the various students in Mr. Jones’s class? (One page)
Stigma: Consider the social effects that these types of differences may
have on the students in Mr. Jones’s class. (One page)
Response: Explain how the parent(s) might address these issues with Mr.
Jones on behalf of their child. Consider their cultural diversity and
language preferences (One page).
Page Requirement: Three-to-four maximum pages, not including title and references pages.
Formatting: Use APA formatting consistently throughout the paper. It is
recommended you use the content area labels as headings for each
section of your content for the paper.
Equitable Grading Issues
and Mechanics: Display meticulous comprehension and organization of
syntax and mechanics, such as spelling and grammar. Your written work
should contains no errors and be very easy to understand.
Requirement: At least two sources including the Course textbooks, and
selections from the recommended readings for this week and previous
