When controversies arise in schools, educators often research and access resources to support analysis, reflection, and problem-solving of these issues that affect the field of education, their students, and various other stakeholders involved.
Using your assignment from Topic 2 and the three scholarly resources you selected, transform your ideas into a complete 1,000-1,250 word rough draft. Your research essay should focus on a controversial topic involving a cultural identifier and the implications for K-12 public education. The final version will be submitted in Topic 7.
Address the following in your research rough draft:

  • 1. Describe the cultural identifier and why you chose it. Explain your connection to your choice of cultural identifiers.
  • 2. Summarize the key historical events that have significantly affected your specific cultural identifier.
  • 3. Summarize the topic in context of K-12 education, including the related cultural identifier and any associated controversies.

  • 5. Describe how this controversial issue could affect your future teaching practices and how it could affect your future students.
  • 6. Summarize related policies or methods that have been implemented in schools as a solution to the controversial issue.

Once you have compiled your Social Injustice and Cultural Identifiers Research Rough Draft, submit it to this assignment dropbox for your instructor to review, and complete the following:
1. Post the rough draft to the Social Injustice and Cultural Identifiers Research Rough Draft Peer Review Forum on Day 1 of Topic 5.
