Personal, educational and/or professional experiences
As you read, make notes about your reactions, assumptions, implications, arguments, questions (see check list below)
The idea of personal responses are to engage in thoughtful internal dialogue about the idea of global issues and education. You should attempt, in your understanding of the readings to get “underneath” what you read in order to understand the social, political, and cultural underpinnings of the issues. Reading critically involves more than understanding the words or liking or disliking the texts; critical reading requires reflection.
Critical Reflections Check List:
Was I thorough? Did I write at least 300 words or a 3-5 min video and did I submit on time? 😉 (2 points)
Did I identify and address some of the major arguments/points/principles in the readings? Did I use three 3 readings or videos, or more, and did I include at least 1 quote or key idea per article/reading (and cite accordingly) and react to this statement or idea? How are my views challenged or supported by these ideas? (2 points)
Did I make connections to personal, educational and/or professional experiences? (2 points)
Did I discuss how this will impact my own teaching practice, work in my intended career and/or future social interactions? Did I give specific examples when possible? (2 points)
Did I pose a clear/non-rhetorical question to my classmates for future discussion/reflection based on this module’s materials? (2 points)
the reading? Please do not simply summarize the readings.
Write your critical response connecting the content from the readings with your responses to the prompts.
