Attached are the directions, rubric and a sample of the paper. I will provide an additional sample tomorrow.

This was a post I did pertaining to this assignment.

The topic I’m writing about this semester is, Education – Teaching to the Culture of the Classroom. I believe this is very important and greatly impacts how successful the student will be. This topic is of personal interest to me, as I struggled with learning the same as other students.

I will try to finds articles, videos and books to gain an understanding if there’s imperial evidence to answer this question. Searching Google will be my first step and then I’m going talk to some teachers I’ve worked with in the past to get a first-hand account of what they’ve experienced.

2. Should educators have additional training to recognize differences in student learning?

For this question, I need to find information on what the curriculum is currently to obtain a teaching certificate to see what’s already required. Also, looking at different state minimum requirements to see if it differs. Finding information about what a school counselor is responsible for and the required training would help as well to see if teachers should take one or two of those courses. I’m going to look on Macomb CC, Eastern Michigan, MSU and Howard University website sites to see what courses must be taken in order to obtain a teaching degree. Then I’ll look on the state of MI, D.C., and GA websites to see what the state minimums are to obtain a certification to teach.

3. Is understanding the culture/area in which the teacher teaches important? does having a racial difference between teacher and student effect learning capabilities in younger students?

I will try to find some fact base articles to support this question on why it’s important to understand the culture. Searching the internet (Google) will be my main avenue of what I will find this information. Also, I will see if I can find some school district scores and see if I can find in correlation.

I-Search Essay

What is an I-Search Essay?

This essay is designed to teach you and your readers something valuable about both your topic and your research process. As opposed to the standard research paper in which a writer asserts a specific stance on an issue, the “I-Search” paper will ask you to narrate your experience of choosing a topic, developing research questions, and conducting research. Once you are finished with your narration, you will reflect upon the information you found and upon the research process overall. You will provide a step-by-step, first-person account of your researching process and offer insights that are explicitly reflective.

It is important to understand that this essay is NOT about making a specific argument. Rather, it is about the process you went through to think of a topic, develop research questions, locate sources, find answers, and draw conclusion about your topic. Be sure to pay close attention to those processes as you work through them in order to give ample detail in your essay. Ultimately, the end of the essay will explain whether or not your research challenged or confirmed your original assumptions.

How to Structure the I-Search Essay

Your essay should have three distinct sections:

1) The Story

In this section, you are going to explain how you came to be interested in your topic prior to conducting any formal research. Describe what you thought you knew about the topic, what you assumed, what you imagined, and/or what you have experienced in relation to the topic. The purpose of the section is to establish your own credibility by explaining why/how the topic has become important to you. Ultimately, you are trying to show that you didn’t just pluck your topic out of thin air without careful consideration.

For example, if you decided to investigate teenage alcoholism, you might start with your reasons for exploring the topic and any background information. You might also want to offer some ideas about the causes of teenage alcoholism, provide an opinion of the severity of the problem, and/or create a portrait of a typical teenage drinker prior to conducting your search. This section is only genuinely effective if you do not discuss anything you have learned from your research.

2) The Search

This section will narrate the process of your research. You will begin this section by stating and explaining your research questions. Next, you will describe your research process in first-person narrative style. Explain whether you consulted Macomb’s library databases, went to the library, read relevant and credible books, magazines, newspapers, websites, or watched documentary films for information. (If you are unsure about whether or not a source is credible, please ask me). You may have even interviewed a person who is an expert about your topic, or perhaps you did an informal survey of peers. You would narrate all of these processes in your “Search” section.

For example, if you were pursuing a search on teenage alcoholism, you might explain how you went to the library to check out a book on the subject, read several pertinent articles in a variety of current magazines that you would specifically identify, made an appointment to visit an alcohol rehabilitation center, attended a meeting of Alanon or Alcoholics Anonymous, and consulted an alcoholism counselor. You might also discuss how you asked a number of teenagers from different backgrounds what their first exposure to alcohol was or whether they perceive any alcohol “problems” among their peers.

Write about your “search” in narrative form (using “I,” detailing events chronologically and with specific details) to record the steps of the research process. Do not feel obligated to tell every minute detail, but definitely explain the major steps of how you conducted your research. Feel free to explain which sources or experiences contributed to a deeper understanding of your topic, but do not feel obligated to give detailed reports of your research findings in this section. Of course, document the sources of your information using in-text citations when appropriate and necessary.

3) The Reflection

Once you’ve finished your search, explain the most significant research findings. Discuss how your knowledge and assumptions were either challenged or confirmed by your research. Compare/contrast what you thought you knew, assumed, or imagined to what you actually learned. Offer some personal commentary and/or insight about your topic, draw some conclusions about the answers you found, and identify any areas of research that might still be necessary.

For instance, after completing your research of teenage alcoholism, you might have learned that the problem is far more severe and often begins at an earlier age than you formerly believed. You may have assumed that parental neglect was a key factor in the incidence of teenage alcoholism, but after your research, you may have found that peer pressure is the prime-contributing factor. Consequently, you might want to propose that alcoholism awareness and prevention programs, including peer counseling sessions, be instituted in the public school system as early as sixth grade.

You should incorporate some specifics of your research in the “Reflection” section. When you are explaining what you have learned, you will need to quote, paraphrase, and/or summarize your source information to demonstrate what you found (and further establish your credibility).  As a result, your paper should contain correct in-text citations to indicate which source of the information you are discussing at any given point in your paper.

Works Cited and In-text Citations

Your essay should use a minimum of 3 and no more than 5 different sources, and it should include quotes, paraphrases, and/or summaries, all documented in MLA style. All sources used MUST be included on the Works Cited page. I always recommend articles and essays from the Macomb Library databases (where you will find the most credible information). That said, if you find a credible source online, that works, too. Again, please ask if you are unsure about sources, credibility, or documentation.
