Assignment 1: Transformative Agents of Positive Change

In the Discussion, you identified three topics in the field of education that ignite your passion and that may inform your end product in your program of study. 

In this Assignment, address, in more detail, the topics about which you are passionate, why you have decided to pursue an advanced graduate degree, and what you hope to accomplish with your degree.

Consider the information you shared with your colleagues and reflect on what your colleagues shared with you in the Discussion posts and responses. Ask yourself what impact you would like to make in the areas about which you are passionate and what changes you would like to implement. Think about how advancing your education might contribute to you making a difference in the areas about which you are passionate.


Note: As you move through your courses and begin to investigate topics that call for educational change, it will be very important for you to narrow your focus. The purpose of completing an advanced course of study is not for you to tackle and change the entire world but to begin your professional journey by focusing on a meaningful, targeted problem within the scope and the time frame available. As you can see from the inverted triangle, topics are broad, issues are subcomponents of topics, and problems are specific, narrowly focused statements for investigation. As you collect more and more information and begin to critically analyze the topic and the issues, you must begin to synthesize information to refine your target issue to a manageable size—the problem statement. This will demand that you begin to work on the skills of synthesis and advanced academic writing.

By Day 7 of Week 1

Submit a 3- to paper that includes the following:

  • A description of the experiences and motivations that have led you to pursue an advanced graduate degree.
  • An explanation of how the three topics you addressed in the Discussion relate to issues in education.
  • A description of a problem related to each issue—a problem you would want to help solve.
  • At least two goals you hope to accomplish as a result of obtaining your degree.
  • An explanation of how your pursuit of the topics you identified can enable you to become a transformational agent of positive change. Provide specific examples.
