Question description

  1. PART 1 Defeating Poverty's Influence

    According to the research (Wardle 2013; Kozol 2010) students who live in low income areas are exposed to a lower quality and/or standard of education than those in higher income areas. The research further states that students in integrated schools perform better on tests, possess increased ambitions for educational and occupational accomplishments, and lead more integrated lives as a result. Would a standardized, state-mandated curriculum work to support these students? Explain your answer, and support your response with at least one outside resource.

    Additionally, who should be held accountable for this sub-par education?

    1. The teachers who are providing guidance and instruction.
    2. The parents whose job is to ensure their child is academically successful.
    3. School administrators who oversee the school’s overall success.
    4. The government that appropriates funding.
    5. The students who should have an intrinsic value of education.



  2. PART 2The Classroom - The Cornerstone of Society 
  3. This week we discover some of the complex challenges and opportunities with which schools are faced. These challenges and opportunities include:

    • Pygmalion Effect.
    • Hidden Curriculum.
    • Ecological Environment.
    • Diversity (segregation and integration).
    • Sleeper effect.
    • Impact of legislation (i.e.; Brown v Board of Education & Lau v. Nichols).
    • Cultural Deficit.
    • Achievement Gap.
    • Heterogeneous Groups.
    • Parent Involvement (lack of).
    • Community Involvement (lack of).

    Part 1: Map it!

    Each of these profound topics is extremely rich in the literature specifically in how they translate into our society. However, we shall take a more cursory approach and map these topics in one of two ways:

    1. How they might relate to one another (see example)
    2. How they might have a cause and effect relationship impacting student learning.

    There are a number of ways you can represent your ideas graphically:

    • Use the SmartArt graphics in MS Word, under the insert tab. Pick the graphic design that most appropriately represents the relationship between these topics you choose to map. You will need to either add more tabs/blocks to the organizational chart or create several smaller maps to address all bulleted topics.
    • You could also use a number of concept mappingmind mapping, or thinking map free software you may discover through Google searching such as Inspiration.
     
    Part 2: Describe it!

    Include a brief, concise summary paragraph explaining the map for your classmates. Highlight certain parts and explain the relationships. Save your graphic and description in a single document and add as an attachment when responding to the discussion.
