Assignment: Choose ONE of the following:
1.Provide a short summary of the educational theory which most appeals to you, and describe whether it would be helpful as a foundation for promoting civility in the classroom
2. As a faculty person you notice a student who was previously doing very well, attending class, engaging with peers and instructors suddenly begins missing class, not turning in assignments and not responding to emails. How would you respond to this situation and why? (This question is asking how your actions align with the education theory you state underlies your practice).
3. When grading an assignment, you notice that several students have submitted work that is strikingly similar. How would approach this situation (and why—based on the theory underlying your actions) and what might you have done to avoid it?
