Week 2 – Assignment

 

Cultural Competence in the Classroom
 

Nikhil Goyal is a successful high school student who, like many students his age, hates school. But unlike most students his age, Nikhil wrote a speech about it and delivered it to a global audience via a TEDX Youth (2012) presentation (please click here for a written transcript of the video). The central theme of the presentation is relevance and, specifically, how schools often lack relevance to the lives of their learners. The majority of Nikhil’s story focuses on Nick Perez, a boy who was marginalized in school and medicated to be able to adhere to the parameters of thought and behavior expected for participation in the school. As you view the presentation, you will learn how Nick became disillusioned by the lack of relevancy and interest in his studies and how his disenfranchisement eventually led him to drop out of school.
 

In this assignment, you will reflect on the story of Nick Perez and analyze it based on what might have happened differently if Nick’s education targeted the learning of 21st century skills through culturally relevant learning opportunities. Additionally, you will recommend a culturally relevant learning experience that might have been able to meet Nick’s needs in high school. Review the Instructor Guidance for this week for additional information and use the Ladson-Billing (1995) resource and Chapter 4 of Wardle (2013) to define a culturally relevant learning experience; apply this framework to the creation of solutions. Then, create your formal written assignment to meet the content and written communication expectations stated below.
 

Content Expectations Video Analysis (3 points): Address the following three guiding statements: According to Nick, “I was denied the right to exist       normally.  My school had wasted my time until there was no time       left”.  Based on the information presented in the video, describe       the learning experiences and cultural competencies that you believe were       valued at Nick’s school.  Then, using Nick’s interest in computers       as a form of his cultural identity, describe cultural competencies and       learning experiences that would be most applicable and interesting to       Nick (think about the way that he described his life at home and at       computer camp).   Examine the 4C skills (a) creativity and innovation,       (b) critical thinking and problem solving, and (c) communication and (d)       collaboration that are presented in Learning and Innovations Skills. Determine which of these skills you perceive are       most likely relevant to Nick’s current position as a programmer in an       advertising firm and which of these skills you perceive are not       adequately addressed in typical classroom environments today. Explain how the acquisition of learning and innovation       skills through culturally relevant learning opportunities can lead to       greater student success in the classroom and in the real world. Cultural Competencies      References (1.5 points): Reference      cultural competencies in your response to the Video Analysis guiding      statements. Include examples using at least one      of the following four characteristics:  Awareness of one’s own cultural worldview (including       biases) Knowledge of different cultural practices and       worldviews Positive attitudes and open-mindedness toward cultural       differences Ability to work successfully with others from       different cultures Culturally Relevant Learning      References (1.5 points):      Reference culturally relevant instruction in your response to the Video      Analysis guiding statements. Reflect on strategies that align with this      approach and include at      least one of the following nine areas: Maximizing academic success through relevant       instructional experiences Addressing cultural competence through reinforcing       students’ cultural integrity Involving students in the construction of knowledge Building on students’ interests and linguistic       resources Tapping home and community resources Understanding students’ cultural knowledge Using interactive and constructivist teaching       strategies Examining the curriculum from multiple       perspectives  Promoting critical consciousness through opportunities       to challenge predominant elements of the students’ social norms 21st Century Skills Framework      (1 point): Reference 21st century skills      in your response to the Video Analysis Questions to reflect the framework developed by the Partnership for      21st Century Learning.

Written Communication Expectations Page Requirement (.25 points): Submit three to five pages, not including the title and      reference pages. APA Formatting (.25 points): Format your paper according to APA style as outlined      in the Ashford Writing Center. Syntax and Mechanics (.25      points): Display meticulous      comprehension and organization of syntax and mechanics, such as spelling      and grammar.  Source Requirement (.25      points): Reference at least one      scholarly source in addition to the Partnership for 21st Century      Learning’s Skills Framework, Ladson-Billing (1995) resource, and Chapter 4      in Wardle (2013) to provide compelling evidence to support ideas. All      sources on the references page need to be used and cited correctly within      the body of the assignment.
