Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Describe a time you engaged in cross-cultural communication. What were some of the challenges? How did you, or how could you have, overcome them? Also, please read pages 49 to 51 in the Derman-Sparks/Edwards text, as well as the attached article, to learn about the purpose of persona dolls and about how to create a story for a persona doll. As part of your critical assignment, you will need to select and create a virtual persona doll with a story designed to support the anti-bias curriculum in a preschool classroom. Several assignments will be integrated into this task (due week 8), so it is critical for you to begin thinking about your doll’s “story” right now. When you have a preliminary idea about what type of doll you want to use for your assignment, please post a brief introduction to your doll to this week’s discussion in addition to your response to the regular prompt. Please add a relevant faith integration component, quotes, and/or other outside research for full credit. Then respond to the postings of at least two other classmates. An excellent initial posting will be about one page long (about 250 words), submitted by Friday evening at midnight, address the prompt thoroughly, be free of grammatical and spelling errors, and include an element of faith integration and/or outside research. If you include a faith integration component, please avoid simply adding a Biblical reference; you need to address and explain some aspects of the topic using the lens of faith. Your responses to classmates (about 250 words for BOTH) should be posted no later than Sunday evening at midnight. No discussion board postings will be accepted later than one week after the due date. Please paste your response directly into the thread, no attachments, please.
