Creative teaching: designing creative and culturally rrlevant

 

Week 6 – Final Project

Creative Teaching: Designing Creative and Culturally Relevant Instruction

For this final project, you will be a classroom teacher developing a creative and culturally relevant idea, concept, or movement for your school. Think about everything you have seen, heard, discussed, shared, and viewed over the past five weeks. What information stuck out as something you would want to implement in your school or classroom? Was there an idea that you wished you could share with your colleagues? What ideas did you discover that will help your students with being creative while also being culturally relevant? You are going to create a proposal for an idea that you would like to implement in your school. Think about to whom you would need to propose this idea? Your administrator? Colleague? PLC team? For a few more ideas to brainstorm, view this Association of School and Curriculum Development (Links to an external site.) (ASCD) video.

Your presentation can be formatted in a way that is appropriate to your style of presentation. You can write an essay, create a PPT with a voiceover, record a presentation with an accompanying outline (with citations and resources), or use one of the other ideas presented during this course. Included in your presentation/proposal should be the following:

Content Expectations

Part I: Audience and Rationale (2 points): Write an overview of the class/school/target population, including age ranges, grade(s), subject area(s), and relevant micro and macro cultural components.

  • Helping learners find their creative strengths
  • Promoting experiment and inquiry and a willingness to make mistakes
  • Encouraging generative thought, free from immediate criticism

  • Conveying an understanding of phases in creative work and the need for time
  • Developing an awareness of the roles of intuition and aesthetic processes
  • Encouraging students to play with ideas and conjecture about possibilities
  • Facilitating critical evaluation of ideas

Written Communication Expectations

  • Page Requirement (.25 points): The length of the final project will depend on the medium you choose; however, some general guidelines would be 8-10 pages (for a paper) or 8-10 slides (for a presentation), 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.
  • Resource Requirement (.25 points): Reference three scholarly sources in addition to the course textbooks, providing compelling evidence to support ideas. All sources on the references page need to be used and cited correctly within the body of the assignment.

Next Steps: Review and Submit the Final Project

Review your assignment with the Grading Rubric to be sure you have achieved the distinguished levels of performance for each criterion. Next, submit the assignment for evaluation no later than Day 7.

If you are enrolled in the MAED Program, it is imperative that you keep copies of all assignments completed in this course. You will return to them for the portfolio that you will create in your final MAED course. This portfolio is a culminating project that will demonstrate that you have met program outcomes.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
