Running Head: CURRICULUM PLAN REFLECTION1Curriculum Plan ReflectionAshley CorriganAmerican College of Education- CI5103
CURRICULUM PLAN REFLECTION2According to Chenowith (2014), “As educators in a pluralistic society, it is necessary thatteachers be adaptive, culturally aware, and sensitive to the challenges of teaching students who may not share the same ethnic and cultural heritages” (p.35). Before beginning my research for my curriculum plan, I felt my instruction and planned activities adequately met the needs of all of the students in my classroom. However, looking at the assessment data for my district, I cameto realize that the African American population in our district is not benefiting from the current curriculum in reading and math as much as the other student populations. I believe that, through my research, I now have a better understanding of how to address this issue in my own classroom. By connecting curriculum to my students’ lives outside the classroom, acknowledging social injustice, and building relationships with my students I can ensure that the African American students in my class are successful in their academic and personal goals.
