Introduction

Going to college is a dream come true for thousands of students a year. But getting there and staying there is not always an easy task. Coming into a college is often perceived as crossing a border of a kind, coming into an institution of higher education where not all students always feel welcomed or comfortable. There are many reasons for that, but teachers and administrators are not always aware of what has happened in a students’ past experiences or what is happening in their current lives outside of school. Yet, one can argue that to be effective teachers and successful students, we have to bridge that gap and work to understand and support each other.

In the past few days, we have completed readings and watched videos that deal with the issue of educational borders or barriers, whether those include childhood trauma, economic hardships, unsupportive families, and often deep inequalities. Martin Luther King Jr. gave us insight into the purpose of education, but then Malcolm X, Sherman Alexie and the four California students from First Generation showed us that the path to learning is not necessarily a smooth one.

Barriers to education are things that prevent students from attending school or completing their schoolwork. Some barriers are physical, such as a shortage of schools or transportation to them while others may be related to the circumstances in which a student lives, such as financial struggle, unhealthy family environments, learning disabilities or simply lack of encouragement or support. These barriers can result in students dropping out of school early or never attending at all, and we have to find a way to fight that.

In order to address the issue, we will look at our own experiences and barriers in relation to what the authors we have worked with over the last couple of weeks.

Reading and Writing Skills

Over the course of this assignment, we will continue to work on developing key academic reading and writing skills, which you will use throughout your career as a student and which constitute the basis of most scholarly writing. You will be focusing on developing a strong thesis, summarizing a text concisely and clearly, and making an argument using your own experiences as support (information).

Focusing Questions

Now that you briefly understand what we are doing with this assignment and why we are doing it, I will now introduce our guiding questions. Through our reading and writing over the next few weeks, we will be considering and discussing the following: What claims about education does your author make? What educational barriers have you faced? Can you find any connections between your experiences on those of the individuals we have read and watched?

Assignment Overview

The section below outlines the specific requirement of this assignment.

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to:

  1. Read and respond to a college-level text.
  2. Compose college-level writing.
  3. Produce an academic summary of an article.
  4. Respond to a topic with an original argument.

Goals

This assignment will help students meet the following Student Learning Objectives, as stated on the course syllabus:

  1. Use personal experiences to provide evidence in support of an argument.
  2. Synthesize researched material from multiple texts to create and support an argument in response to a prompt. Draw direct evidence from texts in support of claims and analyze how that evidence supports the claim.
  3. Utilize the various phases in the writing process—prewriting, writing revision, and proofreading—to produce clear, articulate, well-supported, well-organized essays.
  4. Avoid plagiarism by properly citing quoted, summarized, and paraphrased material using MLA format.

Task

Compose a summary and response essay, between 700-900 words in length, in which you clearly summarize one of our class texts (or one of the trauma videos/ OTHER VIDEO OF TRAUMA or the experience of one student from First Generation) and then respond to it by agreeing or disagreeing with the author’s ideas based on connections between the author’s claims and your own experiences.

Note that you are not allowed to use any outside articles or sources.

Please make sure to review your lecture on Writing a Summary and Response.

More Specifically, the paper should have four paragraphs:

  1. Introduction: The introduction should introduce the readers to the idea of educational borders. It should introduce the article you have chosen to summarize. It should end with a thesis that states how the article relates to your experiences in education so far.
  2. Summary: Your summary of the one text you chose formatted in Academic Summary format.
  3. Response: Ideas and points you acceptdisagree with examples from your own experiences. This should be formatted in PIE paragraph structure.
  • In the Point (topic sentence), you should name what you agree or disagree with the author about.
  • The Information will give an example of your personal experiences to show why you agree or disagree. The
  • Explanation will explain to the reader how your experiences prove that the author is correct or wrong in his/her assertions.

4. Conclusions: Restates your thesis and provides a final thought.

NOTE: Since you are citing an article or video, don’t forget your Works Cited page.

EEC6611 Early Childhood Education

I’m studying for my Communications class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Last week you had a big cleaning day in your program. The children took their chairs and toys outside and scrubbed them down with soapy water and brushes. Today a dad came in with a complaint that he does not pay tuition for his children to do your cleaning. Basing your response on Montessori’s ideas about real jobs and responsibility, what would you say?

Then respond to the following:

As you observe children scrubbing toys and chairs, what would give you clues that they are learning? Include all kinds of learning, not just mathematics and literacy (although you can certainly discuss those too).

1. My response to the father would be- “children want to partake in taking care of themselves and their environment. Montessori believed that if the child is capable of a task, giving them the opportunity to do so will help increase their competence. Also, allowing children to take responsibility will aide in building their self-esteem because children have a great interest in real work. They always want to “help”.”

Observing students completing their task to scrub their toys and chairs, an indicator for me that they are learning would be the child’s focus on the activity and the engagement in helping each other complete the task. For example, if I see a student is taking their time, I know they are focused and want to do their best. If I see a student rushing, screaming “I’m done!!!!” I will probably believe they are uninterested in the idea of learning to clean and find another developmentally appropriate activity for them to engage in, perhaps even assisting their peers in putting items away where they belong.

2. This actually happened at one of the classes at our center a couple of years ago. A parent called me to file a complaint against a teacher because she had made the students clean their desks after they did a painting activity. The children actually loved the idea of cleaning up themselves with sponges and it directly relates to Montessori’s concept of offering children a key to guide their exploration of the world (pg 41). My response to the parent back then was that it was part of the curriculum and that the teachers were there to guide the children to be independent and learn about the environment around them which is not to far off from what I would respond with now having more knowledge on Montessori’s “Beauty and Order” concept. Parents often feel they should not burden children with chores such as cleaning up and this does not prepare them for the world. If this would’ve happened now, I probably would have responded the same way but I would have added that engaging the child in real-life work like cleaning, is beneficial and enhances the child’s self-esteem as it makes them feel proud. It also allows them to be independent and gives them responsibility.

1. Gélinas, C., Bérubé, M., Chevrier, A., Pun, B. T., Ely, E. W., Skrobik, Y., & Barr, J. (2018). Delirium Assessment Tools for Use in Critically Ill Adults: A Psychometric Analysis and Systematic Review. Critical Care Nurse, 38(1), 38–49. https://doi-org.lopes.idm.oclc.org/10.4037/ccn2018633

This source is a study conducted to analyze the development and psychometric properties of delirium assessment tools for critically ill adults to determine their effectiveness and efficiency. The study focused on five different existing assessment tools including the (Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU), Cognitive Test for Delirium, Delirium Detection Score, Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist (ICDSC), and Nursing Delirium Screening Scale. Two individuals then set a standard scoring scale and sored each tool from 0-20 based on effectiveness, quality, implementation, etc. It was found that the Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU), with a score of 19.6, and the Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist (ICDSC) with a score of 19.2, were teh most effective tools. The ranking continues with the Nursing Delirium Screening Scale (13.6), the Delirium Detection Score (11.2), and the lowest scored, less effective tool, the Cognitive Test for Delirium with only 8.2. This source will be able to help me with my change proposal because I can analyze why these certain tools scored so high and develop similar tools to implement in my facility. The negative with this article is that it did not really consider outside factors aside from the assessment tool that may affect how they are used.
