In Unit 3 you interviewed two education professionals about inclusivity and diversity in their educational settings. For this assignment, you will report on what you learned from those educators, analyze your findings, and apply what you learned to your own educational setting.
Create a 3–4 page paper that includes the following. Using your own wording, create a short heading for each bullet point below and organize your responses to each bullet point under the appropriate headings. You may choose to use level-1 APA-formatted headings for this purpose, but you are not required to do so.
An background statement: Describe the two educators you interviewed (educational setting, grade or age level/subject area, years of teaching experience, diversity of students they teach, and any other information that you think is necessary for a reader to gain a basic understanding of the educators in their professional roles).
A description of how the educators illustrate the current state of inclusivity and diversity in their settings. Specifically identify and give a brief description (one or two sentences) of at least two key issues related to inclusivity and diversity in educational settings that were revealed in the interviews. Use information given by the interviewees, not your own experience.
A description of strategies the educators use for creating inclusive learning environments. Identify and give a brief description (one or two sentences) of at least two specific strategies that were revealed in the interview. Use information given by the interviewees, not your own experience.
A description of strategies the educators use for demonstrating respect toward and valuing students from diverse backgrounds. Identify and give a brief description (one or two sentences) of at least two specific strategies that were revealed in the interview. Use information given by the interviewees, not your own experience.
An analysis of how well the educators are creating inclusive learning environments for all students. Which one do you believe is more proficient at this skill? Assess the evidence you have to support this view. Focus on the strategies the educators actually use and how effectively the educators use them. Do not, for example, comment on what an educator could do with more available resources. Then, make an overall statement about which educator is more proficient at creating an inclusive learning environment.
Conclusions or “big ideas” you drew about inclusivity and diversity from your interviews. Use information given by the interviewees and summarize it into at least two big ideas.
An application of these “big ideas” to your own educational setting. Identify and give a brief description of strategies you can use to apply these “big ideas” in your own setting to promote valuing of diversity.
