EDU 125: Introduction to Theory and Practice in K – 8 Education Spring 2018 Assignments 6 4) Three Educational Values Papers (and corrections) - 45% (Standards: 3, 4, 9; CT, CE, CP) You will be asked to submit three short pieces of writing that explain how an item of your choice represents something you value in education. For each item you will need to identify the item and explain what it represents for you. You should then explain, using detail, how the item connects to your educational values. Any resources you cite must be appropriately referenced using APA format. Each response should be one page in length. You must use Times New Roman 12-point font, one-inch margins, and be double-spaced. The first copy of the work you hand in can receive up to ten points. You will receive your paper back and be asked to make corrections to any spelling, grammar, and content errors in order to receive (up to) an additional five points. The additional points you receive will be based upon the percentage of corrections you made accurately. For example, if you corrected 100% of your errors, you will receive 5 more points, if you correct 80% of your errors, you will receive 4 more points, and if you correct 50% of your errors, you will receive 2.5 more points. You are encouraged to get support from the writing center if/as necessary to help you correct your mistakes. At the end of the semester we will have an “Educational Values Museum.” On this day, you will be asked to bring in your items (or pictures of your items) to present to your classmates. During that time, you should be able to explain why you chose each item and what it represents about your educational beliefs. On this day, you may present your work anyway you would like. For example, you might lay your items and your writing on a table, you might create a slideshow or a movie, you might use poster board, or you might do something entirely different.
