EDU 689 EDU689 Week 2 DQ 1 Marginalized Groups (Ashford)
Marginalized Groups [CLOs: 2, 4, 5]. 1st Post Due by Day 3. This discussion explores the ethic of critique and the profession. A primary goal of the ethic of critique is to facilitate an increase in educators’ awareness of inequities in society and schools to assist in providing a voice to marginalized groups who are often “voiceless” in discussions about their situation. Part of being a leader means being able to act as an advocate for all groups of stakeholders regardless of the influence they hold within the institution. To prepare for this discussion, read pages 13-15 of Poliner Shapiro and Stefkovich (2011) and take note of the major tenets of the ethic of critique.
Initial Post: Choose a group from the assigned reading that experiences discomfort, oppression, or alienation due to their race, gender, social class, disability status, sexual orientation, or religion. Next, construct your initial post discussing the strategies you, as an educational leader, can apply to ensure opportunities for a member of this selected group to grow, learn, and achieve. Additionally, provide suggestions for ways in which, as a leader, you can be an advocate for this group and work to alleviate unethical treatment that this group faces along with an examination of legal implications and personal feelings/prejudices that may affect your leadership effectiveness.
Guided Response: Post responses to at least two peers. Consider asking questions of peers about their responses to encourage further conversation. Specifically, either critique their response for any unseen prejudice(s) or provide a personal anecdote of an experience you may have had that was similar. Though two responses is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you, including the instructor, to further the conversation while also giving you opportunities to further demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences with this topic.
