Week 1 assignment | social justice

Assessment Description

Becoming a great teacher requires you to reflect upon your own personal and cultural experiences in order to best understand your students’ unique needs. In this two-part assignment, you will first examine the layers and complexities of your own personal identity while also researching and exploring key terms related to social justice education.

Part 1: Social Justice Key Terminology

Using the “Social Justice Key Terminology and Personal Identity Template,” define the key terms listed, in your own words. Describe what the key terms look like in a school or a classroom setting considering how each term might appear through student-teacher engagement, classroom instruction, classroom management, curriculum, schoolwide events, or parent/community-school connections. With the blank rows, choose two words related to social justice that are of interest to you. In the Reflection section of the template, based on your current understanding of social justice, in 50-100 words reflect on how diversity presents both challenges and opportunities for teachers. In another 50-100 words, explain how your personal experiences, spiritual beliefs, and cultural values have shaped your personal perspectives on education. Explain how Christian worldview may or may not be a part of your cultural values. 

Part 2: Personal Individuality

Using the idea of the Bronfenbrenner diagram, create a digital infographic on the “Personal Identity and Social Justice Key Terminology Template” that exemplifies dimensions of your personal identity through appropriate photographs, graphics, and images of artifacts. Focus on images that relate to the various elements of your personal identity.

Your digital infographic should include the following:

  • Inner most circle: your name
  • Second ring: your daily practices with home, school, and peer groups (examples may include friends, hobbies, interests, etc.)
  • Third ring: your connections (examples could be parents, your job, extended family members, your neighborhood, your community, etc.)
  • Fourth ring: your cultural moral values and spiritual beliefs (examples may include political, faith, or economic systems)
  • Fifth and outer ring: changes you have experienced over time with societal expectations (examples may include death of a family member, new additions to the family, experience with diversity or adversity)

Support your key terminology with 2-3 scholarly resources.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
