7 Doren 7 Position Papers (20% each=60% total): Students will complete three position papers. Each position paper will consist of 4-6 double-spaced typed pages that integrate course readings and presentations with your own ideas on what it means to be college and career ready. Each paper should use 12-point font and 1" margins on each side. The paper can use Tables, Charts, and Figures to present information pictorially, and these may be singlespaced and use a smaller font size as long as they are easily readable. Your papers should use citations and APA formatting (include a Reference page). Position Paper 1: College and Career Ready (DUE: 10/8) 1) Summarize the major elements identified in the readings on what it means to be college and career ready for all students. Does this differ for students with disabilities and other diverse learners? Why or why not? 2) Drawing from the readings, class, and your own experiences describe what you think it means to be college and career ready for all students, including students with disabilities and other diverse learners? Be specific and provide a literature-based personal rationale for your definition. Position Paper 2: Student Knowledge and Skills (DUE 11/5) 1) The readings up to Week 7 in addition to class content and discussions have identified numerous student knowledge and skills that are needed to prepare students for postsecondary education, employment and success in adult roles. Identify and describe the major knowledge and skill areas covered (e.g., Academic Content). 2) Based on the readings, class and your own experiences, identify your top three knowledge and skill categories that you believe are required for college readiness and success. Place them in order of importance. Identify, organize and describe specific related skills under your three broad categories including benchmarks or timeframes for your choices (e.g., by 9 th grade; upon completing high school). Provide a literature-based personal rationale for the knowledge and skills you included and their order. Include a discussion on whether or not and to what extent your knowledge and skills (including order) might differ based on student disability. 3) Based on the readings, class and your own experiences, identify your top three knowledge and skill categories that you believe are required for career readiness and success. Place them in order of importance. Identify, organize and describe specific related skills under your three broad categories including benchmarks or timeframes for your choices (e.g., by 9 th grade; upon completing high school). Provide a literature-based personal rationale for the knowledge and skills you included and their order. Include a discussion on whether or not and to what extent your knowledge and skills (including order) might differ based on student disability or other diverse characteristics. 4) Examine and describe how your broad categories and specific knowledge and skills are similar or different for college vs. career readiness and for all students vs. students with disabilities and other diverse learners. Describe

8 Doren 8 why these commonalities/differences exist. Describe how you might integrate knowledge and skills across the two areas (college and career). Position Paper 3: Programs and Services 1) The readings throughout the course have identified numerous approaches, strategies and interventions to better prepare students to be successful in school and after leaving high school. Based on the readings and class: a. Identify and describe secondary approaches, interventions and strategies that you believe hold the best promise for successfully addressing the knowledge and skills required for achieving success in college and careers for all students including students with disabilities and other diverse learners. Organize and structure your individual approaches, interventions and strategies into broad program components that you think makes sense conceptually and logistically. Describe your organizational scheme. Provide a rationale for your selected approaches, interventions, and strategies and your proposed organizational scheme. b. If you believe that students with disabilities may require additional support within this general structure, or additional components and strategies beyond those available to students in the general population, make this clear also. c. Describe who would be responsible for implementing your program components and instructional strategies, when these would be implemented and for how long. Proposal (40% DUE 12/17). Context You have been asked to create a grant proposal for a school district to develop a secondary program that will help all students (a) access and benefit from general education classes in high school, (b) participate in community-based experiences targeting critical college and career ready skills, (c) make steady progress and achieve a meaningful secondary completion document, and (d) acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for successful postschool outcomes. The district is aware that while all students should have equitable access to district programs and services, students will have different career aspirations and postsecondary goals and different support needs and therefore, may require different services and timeframes in order to achieve their desired goals. They also are aware that the district is under federal and state mandates to provide a free appropriate education to students with disabilities, and that these mandates carry legal requirements. At the same time, they acknowledge that resources are limited, and that the district has an obligation to serve all students K to 12. Proposal Requirements Your proposal should be 8 to 10 double-spaced pages. The paper should use 12-point font and 1" margins on each side. The paper can use Tables, Charts, and Figures to present information pictorially, and these may be single-spaced and use a smaller font size as long as they are easily readable. You may also attach additional supporting materials as an Appendix. You must use APA style and support your responses with appropriate citations. Your proposal should reflect the accumulation of your coursework to date. Your

9 Doren 9 proposal should address the following specific points and you are encourage to gather 5-10 additional empirical articles support the points you address in the proposal and that informs your answers above and beyond the class readings. 1. Identify and describe the proposed knowledge and skills that all students should possess upon leaving high school. Describe how these knowledge and skills compare for students with disabilities and other diverse learners. Assign an order of importance to the knowledge and skills that are proposed and link the knowledge and skills to outcomes essential for college and career readiness and postschool achievement. Provide a rationale for your selection and order and how your proposed knowledge and skills address the district goals. 2. Identify and describe the proposed secondary program components and instructional strategies that will be necessary for the district to address your proposed knowledge and skills. Make clear how the program components and instructional strategies will help all students achieve better secondary and postsecondary outcomes. If you believe that students with disabilities may require additional support within this general structure, or additional components and strategies beyond those available to students in the general population, make this clear also. Describe who would be responsible for implementing your program components and instructional strategies, when these would be implemented and for how long. Grading I welcome variation in responses to the assignments and encourage you to bring your own ideas and experiences to each assignment. At the same time, there are criteria that will be required to be met in each assignment. Below is a description of the criteria that I will use to assign a grade of Excellent (A) for each assignment. Assignments will be appraised based on these criteria and grades adjusted accordingly (e.g., Good (B) and Fair (C)) depending on the degree to which assignments conform to the Excellent criteria. Please note that because successful completion of the course requires adequate progress on course assignments and course assignments build on one another, I will be unable to accept an assignment that is more than a week late.
