Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Assignment


Analyzing Cultural Relevance in Instruction

In Chapter 12, Wardle (2013) summarizes the important characteristics of a culturally relevant teacher. Use this information as a guide or resource throughout this assignment to help inspire your thinking as you apply your knowledge of culturally relevant pedagogy toward specific solutions to problems facing a teacher with a very diverse student population. This exercise provides excellent practice over the application of culturally relevant principles in the design of effective instructional solutions. You will need to design such instructional solutions within the Final Project, so it is very important to practice such skills here. Specifically, for this assignment, you will view a brief video taken with a cell phone by a student in a high school social studies class. The video (Bliss, 2013) documents a meltdown Bliss experienced during his World History course at Duncanville High School in Duncanville, Texas. A transcript of the audio is provided in the Instructor Guidance for this week along with other detailed assistance for completing this assignment.

After reviewing the Instructor Guidance for this task, create your assignment to meet the content and written communication expectations below.

Content Expectations Video Analysis Questions (2      points): Answer the questions below      based on your inferences and ideas after viewing the events captured in      the cellphone video. Description: What is the problem (from Jeff Bliss’s perspective as       well as from Ms. Phung’s perspective)?  Diagnosis: What probably caused it? Who benefits? Who loses?       What position do you take on this issue?  Solution: How could a more equitable, culturally relevant       approach to the class improve the situation? How might Ms. Phung respond       differently to Jeff’s concerns? Equity Strategies (2.5 points): Describe any equity strategies you noticed or inferred      being implemented in the video. Suggest at least one strategy for each of the four categories that the teacher could have utilized to help meet      student needs in a more equitable fashion.
