Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Imagine that you have been asked to present on educating a diversity of learners during a full-day professional development workshop at your local school or school district. Your Signature Assignment is to plan this workshop using the template provided (attached).
Choose four specific topics from these topics (Cultural Competence, Racial Ethnic and Language Diversity, Socioeconomic Realities and Diverse Family Structures, Gender and Sexuality, Differentiating Instruction) that would be relevant and helpful to teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, and other staff; you will define the exact audience. Each of the four topics you choose will become a 45-minute session, which you will outline using the template. Note that the template includes a short break between the two-morning sessions, lunch after Session 2, and a short break between the two-afternoon sessions.
While creating your full-day professional development activities, including current and immediately valuable resources on each diversity issue you explore. Given that this is an academic assignment, you do need to include in-text citations and a reference list.
Length: 5-7 pages, using the provided template, excluding the References page
References: Include a minimum of 8 credible resources with at least two resources for each session.
