Education Philosophy Position Final Paper Michele A. Williams 2012 Educ. 305-D04 LUO As postmodern educators feel their way through an ever changing multicultural classroom environment, it is imperative that each hold firmly to their philosophical positions and do not let society influence them in a negative way. At the same time all teachers should be continually reflecting inwardly to make oneself accountable to their profession.

Educational policies are the rules, guidelines and or boundaries that have shaped my career as student, a teacher and most recently as an educational administrator. Throughout my career I have not questioned always questioned the reasons for the development of these policies. From the readings in this course, I have begun to examine the how and why of policy development and beginning to understand role the policy analysis has in the evaluation of educational policies over time. The role of the state, the role of the individual within the state, changes to political ideologies and the development of globalization have all directly impacted policy development and the directions that education has taken over the last century.
I learned some important things from this course that I will allow to stick with me no matter my profession. Diversity is something I will always have to deal with regardless if it is race, gender, or gender orientation. Importantly this course has allowed me to grow as an individual and has shown me that it is okay to learn about other races and their background. Not only has it allowed me to be acceptable of everyone in fact, it has allowed me to be less judgmental amongst others.
I think that thinking is better than doing because if you just do something then you could harm your future and just doing something without thinking can get you into a lot of trouble. If I had to choose if I wanted to be a person who just does or "intellectual" I would be intellectual. The reason for that is because if I did something without thinking I would have consequences and then that would mess up my future.
Document C is a speech made by a young African-American boy who is first in his class, during 1819, in New York City. He explains that even since he is genius he will have no future because of the color of his skin. According to Document C Note, it states, “ However, this was an improvement over the South where public schooling for white and free blacks was very limited, and where educating slaves was generally illegal.” Document C Note shows that black children in the North were given an opportunity at education allowing them to learn legally for the first time, while white boys in the South still could not go to school. Before the Civil War, many Northern schools for black children were segregated, but this was an improvement over the South
Course Reflection This class has really opened up my eyes to many new views and opinions toward certain information and assumptions. Before taking this class I did not believe I was racist or had any downward views towards any people or cultural. This soon came to my attention that everyone has a little bit of racist in them no matter how hard you try not to be. I also thought that Columbus discovered America, I found it very interesting and almost common sense when we discussed this issue and how the school curriculum has been lying to students in a sense about the discovery of America. The finial bias I soon came to see was that no matter how much you think you will not face other cultures or other religions in schools that you are not familiar with your chances are very slim. No matter where you plan to teach at their will always be situations that you are unfamiliar with.
A Powerful Punishment Policy At Noble Street College Prep, they have students pay for various infractions. “Noble collected almost $190,000 in discipline “fees” from detentions and behavior classes.” A discipline policy is used to make students behave and follow rules. There is a rewarding and punishing policy where students are supposed to be improving. While it is true that the rewarding policy may work, I believe that Konawaena Middle School should have the punishing policy, because when students are being punished, they are behaving during school, focused on their classes while getting superior grades and even with the policy students still have responsibilities for their work.
Diversity and Social Justice Course Experience Diversity and social justice is not something that I was familiar with prior taking this course, nor did I ever have enough knowledge of the deep and complicated social and economic structure in this county. It has been an eye opener course, I gained a lot of familiarity on the issues of race, culture and the other elements that but this county together. My prior awareness about the issues of sexism, ableism, and racism was limited and mostly were self-taught.
Hi. I am Diamond Johnson. I’ve been attending HSS-High since seventh grade and now I am currently a junior. I think I am a good role model at Harmony because I’m a very outgoing person and I also play sports, so I show others that you can be an athlete and also be on A/B honor roll. I am the captain of the basketball team because I have good sportsmanship and Leadership skills. I always encourage my other teammates or help them in an area they aren’t good in instead of judging them. I don’t just associate with people in my grade level I am opened to talking to anybody just so that they know that they will always have a friend to talk to. At Harmony we the students tend to create our group of friends based on race but I try to hang out with everybody just to show them that Harmony is a diverse school for a reason, so use that opportunity to learn about each other. I also believe that being a role model is not just temporary because someone is always watching your every move to learn from you. Therefore, they cannot learn from bad examples so you should always do the right things behind closed doors.
Dear United States Department of Education, I’m currently a new student at Highline community college who is trying to keep up with the fast pace and pressure of college. I want to be successful and pass all my classes with good grades but, I know I can’t do it all on my own. All the resources we have available to us as students are very helpful such as tutors, counselors, and financial aid advisers and I intend to take full advantage of all the resources available to me. It’s very important to me that I pass my classes because I am paying out of pocket, unlike most students who are on financial aid, or scholarships. It’s my first time being back in school since I dropped out of high school 2 years ago so I am facing many challenges
America's test scores are at an all time low. America is teaching our youth the same way we taught youth 20 years ago, but the world has drastically changed since then. As the world changes so should our education system. The curriculum we teach should evolve and conform to the standards of the world. STEAM is an educational approach to teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. STEAM encompasses all important aspects of today's society and teaches them in a fun and educational manner. STEAM education is important because it furthermore teaches core subjects as well as propel kids to learn how to be creative while developing skills and discovering talent through the introduction of culture in our education system. STEAM introduces core
Going into this unit, I was apprehensive. I had never really talked about race in a classroom setting. I did not know how comfortable I was with talking about race in a large group of people. After this unit, I felt a ton more comfortable talking about race, which I
