Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Assignment 1
ePortfolio Submission 1: Culturally Relevant Methods
Throughout this course you will develop an ePortfolio that includes evidence of your cultural competence in each of the following areas:
- Culturally Relevant Methods
- Anti-Bias Curriculum
- Diverse Family Structures
- Multicultural Education
In Weeks One through Four, you will develop the individual components for each of these areas and add them to your ePortfolio. You will share your completed ePortfolio with your peers in Week Five. There are instructions each week regarding the specific requirements for each component that you will be adding to your ePortfolio.
This week, you will complete the first section of an ePortfolio, which will demonstrate your cultural competence in using culturally relevant methods. Since this is the first component in your ePortfolio you will need to begin your ePortfolio. You will use GoogleSites to create your portfolio. Review the “Creating an ePortfolio” job aid and the Example ePortfolio for guidance.
Using Chapters 1 and 2 of your text and at least one additional scholarly source, compile a list of 20 culturally competent strategies for English language learners (ELLs). At least five of your strategies should be appropriate for infants/toddlers, five strategies should be appropriate for preschool, and five strategies should be appropriate for early elementary age. You may select the age level for the five remaining strategies.
Your chart should include the following:
Name of Strategy
In addition to the completed chart, include an APA title page and reference page. Utilize at least one scholarly source in addition to the text to support your ideas, and cite all sources in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Include a link to your ePortfolio on a Word document for submission.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
