Summary: Write a 3-4 page written report about adolescents and their identity

Description: I know we are in a remote teaching and learning mode due to COVID19. Your observations of your students is limited, except for Interns who have greater access/interactions. However, do the best that you can, note the students you observe/come into contact with at your school. Take into consideration your text, video’s and the issues and topics brought up in this week’s reflection forum when writing your essay. Based upon your observations:

  • What cultures do you believe are represented at your SED 640 school site?
  • Are there many different languages spoken?
  • What do you think are some of the cultural/Identity issues present and what challenges if any do you believe some of the students may face?
  • How do these challenge (cultural and identity) impact your role as the teacher?

INCORPORATION OF THE CLASS FORUM IS IMPORTANT:

You are expected to incorporate into your assignments contributions from your peers from the reflection postings. Doing so is not as difficult as it sounds. On the second slide below I have circled the search bar located in the upper right hand corner. The search bar is there on every forum.

Our topic/Assignment for session #2 was about “Puberty” . Lets say that you have decided to write about poor/low self-esteem or self-image during puberty and the importance placed on “good looks” etc., the role acne played during puberty. It would be CRAZY for me to expect you to recall or remember every one of your peers that wrote something about acne in their reflections. All you need to do is put a KEY word in the search bar and as slide #3 below, 10 of your peers had something to say that included the word acne. No doubt this search process will help you identify your peers who have something to say! Incorporating their contribution as per our scoring rubric just became easier!
