Assignment 1 –

1 ½ pages

Over the past 6 modules, you have read and listened to a variety of theories and opinions regarding how humans learn.  In this discussion, you’ll need to go back into your texts and examine the sections that discuss how theories have translated into practice.  Given that we have read a tremendous amount, select two different theories that you have used in prior modules, and discuss how these theories were used by educators to improve/influence their teaching, understanding of learners, and their classrooms.  In your post, please do the following:

· Identify and define the theories (don’t forget to cite!)

· Discuss how these theories translated into practice as per your texts (Hoff, 2014 and Tracey & Morrow, 2017)

· If you’re planning on teaching, please include in your post how these two theories will impact your teaching and understanding of learners.  
OR If you’re not teaching, discuss why you think teachers ought to understand these theories and why these theories are helpful to pedagogical practices.  

Assignment 2

5 pages

Please use my approve topic and professor feedback for this module

Topic Selected: I have selected the topic of using Critical Race Theory to disrupt the inherent “Othered” discourses in institutions (Hoff, 2014). This topic is especially compelling because it confronts racial inequality and the marginalization of particular cultural groups within the educational system. I hope to acquire a deeper understanding, through the lens of Critical Race Theory of how the perspectives and narratives of the dominant culture are privileged while the experiences and histories of minority groups are frequently marginalized. I am curious how educators can combat these disparities and create more inclusive and equitable learning environments that recognize the diverse knowledge and experiences each student brings to the classroom. One major question I have regarding the topic is how we can effectively implement the principles of Critical Race Theory in educational settings to deconstruct the “Othering” of certain cultural groups and promote a more empowering and culturally responsive approach to teaching and learning.

Professors feedback: I think your topic is amazing.  Because this course is human learning, just add in the piece about how being ‘othered’ and marginalized and invisible in the curriculum impacts a student’s ability to learn.  Since you took my curriculum class, you have access to the Hammond text which talks about the impact culturally responsive teaching has on the brain. 

I think this work is imperative to include in your own.  Go back to those papers with my comments if you no longer have the book and that should help.  I can also send you those comments if you need them (just email me) along with the Picower chapters that discussed reading, writing, and racism in school and the damage that did to children. 

· Choose an area of human learning (ex. language or literacy) and trace it through the life span. Discuss how this learning occurs in early childhood (age 0-4), elementary (age 5-10), adolescence (age 10-19) and adulthood (age 20+).  Your paper should include the major theories, theorists, and research, and explore the learning that occurs before, during, and beyond school in your selected area (meaning, you discuss how the learning happens at home, in school, and adulthood)  

· Discuss human learning through the lifespan.  What types of things do we learn at each stage of our development: early childhood (age 0-4), elementary (age 5-10), adolescence (age 10-19) and adulthood (age 20+).  For example, you might say early childhood is focused on language and literacy acquisition; elementary age continues with language but learns what else? adolescents…. adults? Use your readings, major theories, theorists, and research in your paper. 

· Discuss how learning about theory impacts you in your current field or your future field.  For example, if you are planning to teach, how does understanding literacy development, for example, help you become a stronger teacher?  How does the theory and research impact your work? In your paper, discuss the major theories, theorists, and research within the context of your chosen field.
