Due Week 6 and worth 190 points

Refer to both the Overall Concept for Assignments 1-4 and your responses from Assignment 1 in order to complete this assignment.

Write a five to six (5-6) page paper in which you:

Outline the most significant elements or steps of the task upon which the training will focus (See Assignment 1). Using the selected adult learning theory from Assignment 1, analyze the how the theory would support the learners mastery of the task.  Justify your response.
Propose one or more instructional settings for the training being planned based on the nature of the task(s) and the selected theoretical model (e.g., instructor-led in a classroom or self-directed online.)  Provide a rationale for the setting(s) selected.
Propose instructional activities to deliver training on the task(s) that are consistent with the selected theoretical model, the intended audiences characteristics, and the selected training setting. Instructional activities would include the instruction strategies and methods used to teach the tasks, instructional resources (media, materials, technology) needed to teach the task, and student activities needed to learn competent performance of task.
Indicate all needed technology components that you plan to integrate into the training.  Determine how the selected adult learning theory could influence your technology selection. Recommend strategies that you would use in order to accommodate the learners who may not be familiar with technology. 
Propose a timeline for development and implementation of the training, providing a rationale for your views. Determine how the selected theoretical model and the intended audience characteristics could influence the time needed to develop and teach the identified tasks.
Propose three (3) strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of the training during and after development. Determine how the selected theoretical model and the intended audience characteristics could influence your evaluation strategies.

Please answer the following questions:

Question 1:
“Theoretical Orientations and Integrated Perspectives”  Please respond to the following:

Of the five (5) theoretical orientations of learning, explore the one (1) that most closely aligns with your philosophical approach to teaching and learning. Next, construct an adult learning scenario where the blending of theoretical orientations would be most appropriate for the learner population therein. Justify your response.

Appraise the different approaches (e.g., biological, psychological, sociocultural, etc.) which may influence the myriad of methods by which adults construct learning. Suggest key instructional strategies that you might use that favor an integrated approach to teaching within a diverse learning context. Provide examples of such strategies in use in order to support your response.

Question 2:
“Adulthood, Cognitive Development, and Multiple Intelligence”  Please respond to the following:

Analyze one (1) of the Neo-Piagetians theories of cognitive development discussed within Chapter 13, and examine the primary ways in which the chosen theory falls short in addressing adult learners from a different class, ethnicity, gender, and / or social context. Suggest specific implications of applying the chosen conceptualization within a learning setting comprising adult learners. Justify your response.

From the e-Activities, defend or critique the results generated from your unique M.I. Snowflake. Next, examine at least one (1) criticism of the application of Gardners multiple intelligences theory within an adult learning setting, and give your opinion of the validity of the criticism in question.

Question 3:
“Memory, Cognition, and The Brain, as They Relate to Adult Learners”  Please respond to the following:

Recommend key instructional strategies geared toward facilitating the transfer of knowledge to long-term memory. Next, suggest approaches that instructors may use in order to compensate for the challenges of storage information storage and retrieval that occur with age.

From the e-Activity, compare the results of the two (2) quizzes / tests that you have taken. Distinguish the common thread(s)or lack thereofthat the results yielded. Next, suggest which type of knowledgei.e., procedural or proceduralwould yield the best results with an adult learner like you. Provide a rationale for your response.

Participants will submit a written document identifying the appropriate ways to differentiate instruction for the chosen curriculum area (think about what differentiation includes).  This document must be supported with evidence-based instructional methods (they must be cited) from current literature.  One class period during the class session will be dedicated to finding the literature for your specific area and working on this document.

The rubric is provided and an example as well.

Contingency-Shaped versus Rule-Governed Behavior

As children, we are taught the rules to follow for many different situations. Despite knowing these rules, there are some lessons we must learn through personal experience (contingency shaped).

Provide a minimum of two real-world examples of both contingency-shaped behavior and rule-governed behavior.
Think about your daily behavior and determine if it is primarily rule-governed or contingency-shaped behavior. Explain your rationale.

For this activity, you will listen to a podcast selected from “Special Education Matters,” a series dedicated to providing helpful information to parents/guardians navigating the world of special education. It covers a range of topics!

Visit the website:

Or go to Podcasts from your phone and search for “Special Education Matters Michael Boll.”

Choose any episode based on a topic that you’re interested in. Listen to it carefully and take notes.

Once you are done, you will go to Discussions and summarize what you learned from the podcast. Be sure to tell the title of the episode, give the main points of the episode, and also discuss how it connects to (or contradicts) what you’ve learned in class or your own experiences. It should end up being a paragraph or two long. Also, respond to a classmate and express thoughts on their summary and/or tell how your episode was related to theirs. Don’t respond to someone who listened to the same episode as you :).

40 points for your original discussion thread.

10 points for your response to a classmate.

You have a standard practice of displaying all student work in your classroom. Recently, you assigned students to write any essay and submit a pictorial depiction on the person they considered to be their hero. One of your students submitted an essay on Jesus and a drawing of the Last Supper.

In a 500-750-essay, discuss any legal issues regarding the grading of your students essay and whether you could display the students work. How does the First Amendment apply to this situation?

Include at least five references in your essay. At least three of the five references should cite U.S. Supreme Court cases.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

In your paper, include the following:

Summarize the case study.
Describe credible and scholarly sources, relevant to a particular theory.
Apply a social psychological theory to a chosen case study.

(Suggestion to start off the essay)
For the past six weeks, I spent each Friday afternoon in a Year One classroom on placement acting as a teaching assistant. Throughout the placement, I kept a journal of significant incidents I experienced whilst in the school in Trafford. In this essay, I intend to use a critical incident framework to reflect on and interpret the situations I found my self in, enabling me to transcribe the results. These incidents have been described as critical incidents  (Tripp;1993, p.8). Tripp states that critical incidents are produced by the way we look at a situation (Tripp;1993, p.8).
