Reflection Paper Three: History through A Students Eyes
Below i will copy the directions, but I will also attach them in the order along with more instructions and templates to utilize for the assignment. YOU MUST REFERENCE a few of the sources that i attach. Each source will be a separate pdf file along with a power point slide. This is key to the course. These attachments will look different then the directions/template that will be a word document.
This assignment will help you to understand what secondary-age students already know and think about social studies. For this assignment, you will interview two secondary age children (grades 7-12). Neighbors, sisters, brothers, cousins, nieces, nephews, students in your field placement, baby-sitting jobs, kids you coach, kids you tutor, etc. are all perfect candidates. You should either record the interview to use in writing your essay or take very detailed notes during the interview. You may work in pairs for the interview portion but the paper must be written individually. The interview has two components: an image interview and a general interview. Explicit instructions and a script can be found linked in an attachment.
In your paper you will identify 3-4 main conclusions you have reached from the interviews, support each with the use of specific examples from the interviews, and explain 3-4 instructional implications of each of these conclusions. Your conclusions should be generalizations which identify patterns in students\’ responses, not a description of students\’ responses to every question you asked. Instructional implications must include reference to readings assigned in class in APA format. Linked in the attachment there are detailed instructions for this assignment, images for the photograph activity, and a rubric.
