Write an essay that takes up a multicultural stance on a curricular artifact (phenomena and other forms are applicable, too, but you will need to discuss how you’re collecting them for analysis).
Curricular artifacts can include (but are not limited to) the following: course syllabi, activity write-ups, lesson plans, content lists, multi-media sources, storybooks, photographs and videos, and web content. (YOU MAY NOT USE TEXTBOOKS). Additionally, you can analyze objects, media, and performances outside of formal schooling that have educational aspects that can inform multicultural thought (e.g. film, museums, artwork, etc.).
This critique can address a range of different features of the curriculum – content, structure, language, assumptions, intentions, etc. – but it must do so in a way that addresses how that artifact represents elements of culture, particularly race and or racial bias.
Describe how the artifact represents systemic racism
Reflect on the enduring impact of the artifact on the individual, classroom, or the community.

Assessment Description
Part of an asset-based approach to working with ELLs is recognizing the cultural and linguistic resources they possess. The asset-based approach contrasts with the deficit-based model that once dominated how many viewed second language learners. Schools and educators can help close the inequity gap faced by our diverse student population by exhibiting asset-based behaviors and expectations, focusing on viewing cultural and linguistic differences as assets and not deficits.
Imagine you have been asked to plan a schoolwide event leveraging home and school connections for ELL families. In 150-250 words, create a proposal of the event to submit to your school principal that addresses the following:
Part 1: Schoolwide Event Proposal
Title, description, and rationale of the event
Agenda, including time frames and activities
Equipment and supplies
Part 2: Cultural Connections
In addition to the proposal, write 500-750 words justifying how the event supports each of the following:
Cultural influences, cultural competence, and social-emotional needs of ELLs in teaching and learning
Intentional strategies for family and community engagement that support and highlight the assets of home language, communication, family involvement, and culture to build family, community, and school partnerships
Inclusive school and classroom environment taking into consideration language acquisition and key environmental factors such as family, community practices, and the role of culture in student learning
The role that family and community practices have in influencing language learning
Alignment to asset-based behaviors and expectations
Support your proposal with 2-3 scholarly resources.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
ONLY COVER PAGE AND REFERENCE PAGE ARE REQUIRED TO BE APA STYLE. I will attached a PowerPoint as an example. Please
check that out for format purposes.

 

 

Millennials are also known as Gen Y, Gen Next, Echo Boomers, Screenagers, Facebo

Millennials are also known as Gen Y, Gen Next, Echo Boomers, Screenagers, Facebookers and the MySpace Generation, and these are just a handful of other names. Regardless of what you call this generation of individuals, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are nearly 80 million young adults born between 1976 and 2001 who are preparing or have already joined the workforce.
In the video this week, Simon Sinek explains how the millennial generation became so entitled. A combination of technology, impatience, and environment have created a wave of young people who experience challenges in the real world. Answer these questions in your thread: (a) What positive characteristics do millennials bring to an organization? What does this generation feel is important in a job and what do they expect from their employers? What role can you as a college or university professor play in shaping the way the Millennial student thinks about their education or career? Feel free to include a Bible verse or link to another video to support your statement.

In many classrooms across the nation, students have access to technology. This is especially true since the onset of the COVID pandemic. There are many educational tech-based apps available for teachers to infuse technology into the classroom. Specifically, there are applications which would be useful in promoting movement, music, dance, and drama.
Design a lesson that will incorporate the use of one or more web/computer/mobile applications available to teachers or students.
As with the Arts based lesson plan,
this lesson should be something that any teacher would be able to easily follow and implement in their kindergarten classroom. Your lesson plan should minimally include a rationale, objectives, resources, and procedures.
