This option provides you with an opportunity to integrate race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, and gender categories in the context of a major current event. Following these general instructions is an example; always reach out to your instructor when you have any questions.
Choose a current event that is making national or international headlines; your instructor can help you decide. It might be a story about an election, a natural disaster, the global economy, a highly publicized criminal trial, or an event in the entertainment industry.
Then, analyze how race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, and gender intersect and impact the event itself, the coverage of the event, and the event’s results. For example, if you decide to look at mass shootings in the United States, you will discuss who the shooters are (race, ethnicity, class, gender) and how the media portrays them (race, ethnicity, class, gender) as well as the victims (race, ethnicity, class, gender), etc. How old are the perpetrators and the victims? How quickly was the media to cover the story? Who are the reporters (race, gender)?
This is an analytical research paper where you will be following the case/event and using scholarly resources to guide your critical thinking throughout your report. That is, support statements with evidence.
The portfolio project is an 8-10-page research paper (approximately 3,500 words). Your paper must be properly cited and formatted according to the CSU Global Writing Center.Links to an external site.

“The scariest moment is always just before you start.” ― Stephen King, “On Writing”
This assignment requires you to write an original short story of 4-6 pages (1000-1500 words). It should demonstrate your learning about character, structure, detail, point of view, and other elements fundamental to fiction writing. It should reflect your reading by observing the stylistic standards exemplified in the short published works we’ve been studying. It should aim to be “literary” fiction, distinct from “popular” or “genre” fiction such as fantasy, romance, or similar forms generally crafted with a reliance on formulaic conventions.

Showing and telling: using significant, concrete details drawn from the senses to reveal information and meaning
Well-developed, believable characters, interactions, and authentic dialogue
Setting conveyed through the description and character interaction to establish a sense of place, a believable fictional world
Consistent and appropriate point of view.
Time: a sense of when this story is taking place, the pacing is appropriate

Ending: a clear ending that seems appropriate to the story (not tacked on)

Online Learning knocking on in Early Childhood Education’s Door: COVID Edition. This has been something at the top of my mind since the beginning of the pandemic. Young children (ages 3-8) and their parents/guardians have been thrust into online learning, but this is seemingly counterintuitive to the way children in early childhood learn. Most learning is the result of play, social interaction, and tactile engagement with manipulatives. As the child progresses through this stage, they become familiar with place-based dynamics, expectations and rules governing different types of environments. Arguably, the most fundamental aspects of human development are laid during this period of a child’s life. Fast forward to 2020 with the onset of the pandemic and learning in early childhood education was completely disrupted. We are seeing a dramatic increase in learner anxiety, regression of language development, and various mental health issues surfacing in this particular age group due to remote learning.
I want your team to explore HOW we can better support our youngest school-aged children during this time by using our PGW framework and the readings to understand how technology and play can co-exist and support early childhood learning.
Task: You should focus on the the impacts of technology on play and gaming on children’s education. focusing on the characteristic of “low risk” from the PGW* framework to highlight the intersection between technology and play for learning.
I attached one part I have done for this question, but I haven’t talked about the impacts of technology on play and gaming.
Ethics Discussion Instructions
Introduction: One of this unit’s articles discusses how to build an ethical career. As the authors point out, preparing to behave in ethical ways is important. Part of the purpose of this assignment is to give you space to prepare your brain to make ethical choices in the future. There are several suggestions that you can put into practice now that should help you as you enter the workforce.
Discussion Assignment: Choose one of the prompts below to explore these ideas further. Your discussion post should be 4 paragraphs long and answer all the questions in the prompts. There isn’t a length requirement, but I think it would be very hard to do a thorough job in less than 500 words.

“the story of an Hour by Kate Chopin
This essay tackles nihilism and breaks down the answer to the question: Do we matter?
In this essay, we are siding with nihilism and using friedrich nietzsche’ studies as evidence. I suppose the purpose of life is to have the largest impact on your environment. This could be physical power or influencing other peoples’ lives for better or worse. Is it extremely pessimistic to think nothing truly matters? When the last record of you disappears and the last person to know of you forgets, no evidence will remain of your existence. Your happiest moments and saddest days are all memories lost to time. Your creations and words will erode to dust and flow back into the sea. I tried to find evidence that proves nihilism wrong and while existentialism is like a treatment, it is no cure. Any meaning we create in life serves as a purpose for some other larger meaning. This infinite rabbit hole of finding meaning makes nihilism look a little bit nicer.
People to read about to find evidence to back up nihilism
HP Lovecraft does cosmic nihilism
Edgar Allen Poe has some nihilistic pieces
Have fun with this and be as creative as possible please!
