Influences on Learning Presentation
Each student will utilize a multimedia tool (Prezi, iMovie, PowerPoint, etc.) to design a presentation on the group’s selected topic. The presentation should have a script that is audio recorded with the presentation. The goal of the presentation is to teach your fellow classmates about this specific topic, and the presentation should be viewed as one that could be presented in a professional development session for teachers.
Please note the presentation is not necessarily a summary of the topic, rather it should identify information that will be helpful to you as a teacher.
The case study is a rich portrait of the development of a student that you observed in the school context. It is based on your written observations, interactions with the child and includes general descriptive information about family, community, and cultural context. The purpose is to help you learn how to observe children and collect data systematically so that you gain insight into development. These skills will enable you to assess students and plan developmentally and culturally appropriate learning experiences for them.
Each student will conduct a study of one child or adolescent to examine the developmental domains. Using a variety of activities, small/whole group lessons, teacher/parent/student interviews, etc., students will write paper a 12-15 page paper that describes the key findings
