The following post has two assignments namely;
A new movement has started since the early 2000s, where some political groups are trying to remove American history from our children’s school curriculum and textbooks, specifically slave history.
However, these groups also do not want to cover segregation or civil rights. By removing the history that we have just covered in these last eight weeks, the African American communities would be
denied their connections to American History. Recently, African Americans have created movements such as "Black Lives Matter" to counteract these other groups. Many tie slave history to
the development of segregation and racism that has spread throughout our country. A Historical Trauma has affected generations of African Americans because of what their ancestors had to endure
just to survive in this country. This distrust has developed towards different groups, agencies and organizations. For those who are not affected, trying to understand what it means to be an
African American in the United States showcases the need for this history to be taught in all schools and to every American.
prepare a letter to the editor of your local newspaper that would explain to all of America why African American History should be taught in American schools.
Explain why every American should known this history and propose how knowing specific parts of this history could help mend race relations in the United States.
use specific facts, events and people to show how knowing this history can explain the trauma that has affected so many Americans.
These facts, events, and people must come from your required work this term and from research in the library or from the course bibliography.
In your letter, demonstrate the breadth of knowledge you have gained from this work. Do not forget to use in text citations because you will be using multiple sources.
2.Catering for Diversity in the Inclusive Classroom
Select ONE of the following students for your case study
A. Aarya, an English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) student in your nominated year, has cerebral palsy and cortical vision impairment. Aarya requires significant support from the school
learning support officer (teacher’s aide) for mobility, toileting, and tube feeding (through a stoma in the naval). Aarya is quite good at using the head switch on the side of the wheelchair which
links to the laptop. Aarya is social and smiles and laughs a lot. Aarya is quite intelligent and writes very creative short stories and is considered gifted in this area. Both parents want Aarya to
have the social experience of being with peers.
B. Barke, an Aboriginal student in your nominated year, is living in out of home care in a small group home as kinship care places were not available. Barke has monthly contact with birth parents
and the organisation caring for Barke have regular meetings with the school. While Barke tests as above average intelligence, class tasks are rarely completed, homework is not done and he is at
least two years behind. Barke’s demeanour is unpredictable, sometimes cheery and easy going, sometimes unresponsive and sometimes angry. While good at sport Barke rarely engages with others.
