Naturally, some of these experiences will have contributed to your personal development and identity with greater impact than others. Furthermore, many in-school variables have affected your educational journey. The decisions made by those teachers and school staff defining your in-school learning experiences were derived from their philosophies of education and their understanding of educational theory. The prevailing educational theories informing your EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 1 Discussion Caine's ArcadeFor more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comCaine’s Arcade. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Caine is a 9-year-old boy whose afterschool and weekend project turned into an international imagination movement. As theCaine’s Arcade video explains, Caine built a gaming arcade almost entirely out of cardboard and opened it up for business in the storefront of his father’s auto parts store. This story provides an excellent example of how characteristics of Caine’s personal identity might affect how and what he learned from the specific experiences portrayed. The cultural values that nurtured Caine’s curiosity and inventiveness can be identified within his video story and the factors contributing to his “funds of knowledge” going into the project can be EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 2 Assignment Cultural Competence in the ClassroomFor more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comNikhil 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. 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.EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 2 Discussion 1 Landfill Harmonics and 21st Century SkillsFor more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comLandfill Harmonics and 21st-Century Skills. 1st Post Due by Day 3. As educators, knowing about the 21st- century skills is important, and being able to recognize the skills within specific examples is an indicator that you truly understand them and how they work in application.

In this discussion, we go a step further by considering 21st-century skills in relation to another inspiring story of creativity, imagination, and inventiveness.EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 2 Discussion 2 Outside ChallengesFor more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comOutside Challenges. 1st Post Due by Day 3. This discussion focuses on identifying the economic, technological, social and personal factors outside of school that can result in barriers to academic success inside school. From Week One’s readings of the course text and the assessments related thereto, you should now be familiar with the research that describes the relationship between factors of social class and school success, the impact of diversity on learning, and the importance of family involvement. These factors represent powerful variables outside school that impact learning inside school. For this discussion, discuss factors in your own life, outside of school and the direct and indirect relationships with your learning experiences inside of school. Be sure to review the Week Two Instructor Guidance for additional information that can assist you in excelling in all assessments for this week.EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comHCS 475 Week 2 Discussion Question 2For more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comProvide an example of a time when management presented you with an organizational or procedural change. What steps did management take to implement and communicate the change? What was the impact of that change on employee morale and production?

Throughout this course, you have had many opportunities to view a number of such resources. This assignment encourages you to reflect on the key concepts presented in the course through the creation of a web-based presentation or website that you can use in the future to support your teaching efforts. The goal is to showcase several model schools or programs representing what you have learned thus far regarding culturally relevant practices, creativity, and innovation. A plethora of options exists as you search for model schools or programs.

Robinson (2011) noted that “When people say to me that they are not creative, I assume that they haven’t yet learnt what is involved” (p. 1). Do you find it interesting to consider that creativity can be learned? Or conversely, that it can be unlearned? In this discussion, you will apply your knowledge of creativity and the strategies needed to encourage it by reflecting on a personal experience in which your creativity was either stifled or enhanced.

Have you ever seen Blue Man Group perform? If not, here is a ten- minute video that showcases the group’s unique, creative talent: Blue Man Group – part 01. In their own way, the members of the Blue Man Group reflect the essence of the Landfill Harmonic project. For example, at the heart of Blue Man Group’s act are musical instruments made from things that were not originally designed to make music. Similar to the Landfill Harmonic accomplishments, Blue Man Group’s creativity is not just applied to making music, but to making the instruments that make the music.EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 5 Assignment A Case for Problem-Based LearningFor more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comFor this assignment, you need to assume the role of a classroom educator. This can be based on a class that you are currently teaching, one that you have previously taught, or one that you hope to teach in the future. Suppose you are participating in a department team meeting with the other teachers in your grade level. You are having a discussion about an upcoming unit. One of the teachers indicates that she plans to distribute the same packets she used last year and schedule five days of independent seat work for her students to complete the packets by locating answers in the course textbook. This would be followed by a written exam over the material in the packets.EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 5 Discussion 1 Decisions!For more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comDecisions! Decisions! 1st Post Due by Day 3. Teachers are professionals who must make many decisions throughout their day! Some decisions are immediate, spur of the moment choices like disciplining students or revising a lesson that is not working. Others decisions are more calculated, like developing a semester-long project designed to incorporate community resources into a problem-solving scenario. All the small decisions teachers make throughout their day likely support the two most important, larger overarching decisions that are made at the beginning of a learning experience and are based in part on many macrocultural and microcultural factors:• What is truly important for students to learn?EDU 692 Enthusiastic Study / snaptutorial.comEDU 692 Week 6 Discussion Creativity, Innovation and CultureFor more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.comCreativity, Innovation, and Culture. 1st Post Due by Day 3.
