Scholarly writing is objective, addresses key stakeholders, clearly states a problem(s), provides the significance of the stated problem(s), and is logical and organized. The aim of scholarly writing is to make an argument that is supported with evidence. The peer-reviewed journals you have found in your library searches for literature are examples of scholarly writing. To be an effective change agent and a leader in the field of education, it is crucial that you have well developed scholarly writing abilities.

As you have explored your selected case study’s documents, you have read a variety of types of writing that differ from scholarly writing. For example, you may have read blog posts, letters to the editor, newspaper articles, and government reports.

Your role in education will likely require you to not only read a variety of types of writing, but to use a variety of writing types in your own communications. As you may have noticed in the case study documents and the resources you have been exploring, the type of writing you use depends on your audience and the purpose of your communication.

For this Assignment, create a simple message related to the case study. In addition, identify three different audiences to which to communicate the message. These audiences may be extracted from the case study documents, or you may identify different audiences appropriate for the message. Consider how you might convey the same message in writing to the three different audiences for your case study.

To prepare for this Assignment, review the documents related to your selected case study. Identify an aspect of the case study which would require a simple message for three different audiences. These audiences may be extracted from the case study documents, or you may identify different audiences appropriate for the message.

Submit a 3 page document in which you:

  • Explain the simple message related to your case study which you wish to communicate.
  • Create three written communications – one for each of three audiences you identified – using the appropriate type of writing for each context. (Each written communication should be approximately 2 paragraphs long).
  • Explain why different types of writing are appropriate for different audiences/stakeholders. Provide specific examples.

Issues in K-12 Education Case Study Scenario Your state is considering a required set of education standards that all schools must adopt. You have been nominated to serve on the statewide committee to inform the legislature as to which standards, if any, should be adopted. You will have the opportunity to take a stand on the following issue. Does a set of required standards improve or limit education for ALL students (e.g., general education students, special education, English language learners, gifted learners) in state schools? Consider the following questions: How can standards be implemented to improve the quality of education for ALL students in all levels and types of classroom (e.g., general education, special education, vocational)? Is it more effective to adopt district standards, state-specific standards, or national standards? Once you decide which standards to adopt, what materials, supports and training will be needed to implement them? How do different stakeholders (e.g., policy makers, government leaders, principals, teachers with various specialties and points of view, students, parents) feel about the issue of standards adoption and implementation? Stakeholders The State Department of Education, school administrators, teachers, students, parents, educational specialists, politicians, business leaders, employers, advocacy groups, and the community at large. Document Set 1 • Document 1: A brief overview of the standards-based movement with information synthesized from multiple authentic sources • Document 2: Statistics and quantitative data that demonstrates inequality and falling international performance; the data focuses on literacy, science, and math scores, as well as the importance of education on lifetime earnings This document is pieced together from a variety of authentic documents • Document 3: An authentic document that explores the function of technology in education, and non-traditional settings for K-12 education © 2014 Laureate Education, Inc. Page 1 of 2 • Document 4: An authentic document that introduces new guidelines for education reform that will prepare all public school students for college or a career Document Set 2 • Document 5: A simulated editorial from a school administrator detailing concerns and issues with implementation of the Common Core State Standards • Document 6: A simulated magazine article that illustrates some the issues regarding a set of uniform standards and expectations for English Language Learners • Document 7: A simulated blog post with relevant comments about the concern that a common set of standards might exclude such disciplines as art and music • Document 8: Simulated blog posts about the Common Core State Standards and special education NOTES: Common Core is arguably one of the most pressing and controversial issues in K-12 education. The goal of this case study is to have students consider the various stakeholders involved, and take a position on both the broad issue of standards-based education and one or more subtopics that fall under this umbrella. © 2014 Laureate Education, Inc.
