Week 4 Discussion – Equity and Excellence

After completing this week’s Readings and Resources, respond to the following questions. 

If a student teacher were sent to observe in your classroom today, how would that student teacher see equity and excellence played out in your classroom? In your school? What are you doing now in your classroom or in your building that is welcoming and supportive of all students? What are some areas in which you believe your school could improve? Feel free to use the Resource from Montgomery County Schools (link in this week’s Readings and Resources) as a guide.

Your initial responses are due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings. You are also required to post a response to at least two of your fellow classmates by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday and it should be between 50-75 words each. The responses should also be a substantive response that demonstrates a comprehension of the reading material. Responses such as “I agree” or “I disagree” are not acceptable or will not be counted as a response.
