Course Assignments

Equity Issue Paper and Presentation
This project provides the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of the history, research, policy and current practices in ESL as it applies to an equity issue related to this course and how it impacts those in your own classroom or your fieldwork school. The paper and presentation should provide examples of compelling new collaborative research and programs that link universities with P-12 teachers.

  • Identify a salient issue in your school (for example, racism, stereotyping, bias, lack of access to programs, placement in special education);
  • Review the research in the field citing a minimum of five references.
  • Identify two strategies to address this issue in your classroom or school. Create an action plan for implementation in your classroom.

The purpose of the presentation is to build awareness and knowledge across issue groups, so that your peers who have focused on other areas can benefit from what you have learned and improve their own development as teachers. Your Equity Paper presentation should provide

  • an overview of your issue,
  • including key findings,
  • problems identified in your school or workplace,
  • possible solutions,
  • suggestions from your colleagues,
  • and your own reflections/conclusions and recommendations.
  • A list of online resources should be provided to share.
