These two questions are due on 10/30 there is two seperate questions and can be a few paragtaphs long could you help me with these and the paper I will post on another question?
1. 1st question
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?
- The teachers who are providing guidance and instruction.
- The parents whose job is to ensure their child is academically successful.
- School administrators who oversee the school’s overall success.
- The government that appropriates funding.
- The students who should have an intrinsic value of education.
2. 2nd question
This week we discover some of the complex challenges and opportunities
with which schools are faced. These challenges and opportunities
Part 1: Map it!
- 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).
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:
- How they might relate to one another (see example)
- How they might have a cause and effect relationship impacting student learning.
There are a number of ways you can represent your ideas graphically:
Part 2: Describe it!
- 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 mapping, mind mapping, or thinking map free software you may discover through Google searching such as Inspiration.
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.
Here’s an example:
*Note you can change colors when you click on the graphic and select the design tab in the tool bar above.
