Whole Class
  • View photos of Civil Rights pictures, respond to each one, discuss our responses.
slide10

Did those photos make the reading “Whites only” more real for students? Is this in the past- who cares now? What does this have to do with being a teacher?

          • (Next slide)

guidelines
Guidelines
  • Identify an ethical issue/challenge you have had during student teaching (or perhaps as a student or SERVE student).
  • Even if you did not respond appropriately at that time given your powerlessness, how do you pledge to respond better in the future, or what are you going to work on?

  • Related SLOs: Students will identify theory and application of multicultural education, social justice, anti-bias and anti-racist education, and an awareness of educator-activist models; and, students will identify and reflect upon their attitudes, beliefs, & approaches to diversity issues.
start with a whole class brainstorm
Start with a whole-class brainstorm
  • what have we learned about inequality in the elementary classroom so far, in terms of class, ethnicity, gender, and language learning?
ethical treatment in our readings education specialist teachers
Ethical treatment in our readings: Education Specialist Teachers
  • Some Principles for Education Specialists (and all teachers!) from the Council on Exceptional Children:
  • Maintain challenging expectations for individuals with exceptionalities to develop the highest possible learning outcomes and quality of life potential in ways that respect their dignity, culture, language, and background.
  • Promote meaningful and inclusive participation of individuals with exceptionalities in their schools and communities.
ethical treatment in our readings undocumented students
Ethical treatment in our readings: Undocumented students
  • Plyler vs. Doe, 1982: Teachers and Administrators may not engage in:
    • Chilling: Creating fear amongst potentially undocumented students (e.g.: by asking them to fill out forms completely, including SSN, even when forms are not required to be complete)
    • Exposure: Exposing undocumented students, asking for documentation, or asking about documented status
    • Disparity: Treating potentially undocumented students differently
at your table
At your table
  • Discuss the ethical issues or unequal treatment of students you have seen at your SERVE site related to those inequality issues.
  • Each student should have already noted at least one issue in their observation/SERVE notes. If you did NOT write about them, please add to your #3 observation by hand so I can read about them when you turn the observation in today
whole group questions
Whole group questions
  • What issues did you see?
  • What are teachers’ ethical obligations? Look at today’s readings [Morse & Ludovina, CEE]
  • What are teachers’ legal obligations?
  • Let’s make some ethical treatment guidelines to take with us in our (your and my own) future classrooms:
ethical treatment guidelines assessment
Ethical treatment guidelines(assessment)
  • Take 15 minutes at your table to come up with your own—or your group’s—ethical treatment guidelines for your own teaching in your future classroom. I’ll ask you to turn them in (ungraded) and will return them to you next week
  • You may also wish to draw on your own past educational experiences to create your guidelines
  • We will share these aloud in class today and discuss our reasons for including each guideline
