*this is actually a group project. we are only doing the part “Analysis Using theory to come up with analysis”
What should be included in an educational platform? First of all, a platform is a public declaration of particular aims for a particular issue. It’s taking a stance. It is a statement of ideals and intentions that is rooted in a clear rationale. You will begin by very explicitly picking an issue in education that stems from history (U.S. context). THIS IS A HISTORY AND SOCIOLOGY PROJECT AND THUS WILL REQUIRE HISTORICAL RESEARCH. There should be a CLEAR connection to how this relates to the socio-cultural aspect of education.
There is no single direction that your education platform should take, and given the diversity of students and ideas, there are many different ways this project could look. However here are the required guidelines that must be included in your final paper (and reflected in the presentation). Your platform should be organized in two parts: 1) a rationale followed by 2) recommendations. Rationale (5-6 pages)
Your platform should begin with a clear understanding of the socio-cultural aspects of education. What is SFE? (rewatch Video 1 Introduction to Unit 1: Foundations of Education
(Links to an external site.)
(course video). How can this help your group in understanding how historical issues impact education today? Explicitly name the topic in the beginning that you are going to address in this platform.
Within your rationale, you should begin by taking a stance on democratic purposes of education in a pluralistic society. Clearly identify what is meant by a pluralistic democracy and who is helping you with this definition (cite scholars/theorists).
The topic you are addressing should be clearly situated in understandings of SFE and use literature to support your analysis. Choose a theory(ies) that will help you analyze the topic (one we’ve covered or another one approved by your instructor).
So for example, if you choose to tackle the school-to-prison-pipeline in your platform, understandings of the historical legacy of racism might be an approach you take and Critical Race Theory might help you.
The majority of your rationale should include an historical analysis that helps your audience/reader to understand that you are well-versed in the issue and you understand the why
Recommendations (2-3 pages)
Based on your understanding, create several recommendations or implications that you have now that you have a clear understanding. This is the action part of this project- where you as 204ers consider ideas for educational change! If helpful, you can decide what audience you’d like to address to help you in tailoring your recommendations. The recommendations you make in your platform should demonstrate a clear connection to the historical nature of schools and how this influences present-day inequalities.
Overall Considerations
The group paper will be between 8-10 pages and will be turned in after you watch and engage with each other’s presentations on the discussion board. You should listen to the feedback from your peers before turning in a final project. Your educational platform needs to be situated in literature and research. There should be a minimum of 10 references, at which 5 can be from EDL 204 (the other 5 or more should be from outside research). This is intended to encourage additional outside research to enhance what you have learned in EDL 204.
