ESE 656 Journal Help

Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.


This journal assesses your ability to think critically about how culture plays a role in student behavior. This assessment also supports your achievement of Course Learning Outcome 5 and the MASE Program Learning Outcome 8.

The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique and recognizing our individual differences. It is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity contained within each individual. To help inform your discussion posting, read the instructor guidance and watch Classroom Behavior by Sabornie (2010).

Instructions:Using support from your assigned reading, the Instructor Guidance, and the discussions, submit the following for evaluation. Use the below guidelines for creating your written assignment. If you have questions about the journal or the rubric, please contact your instructor using the Ask Your Instructor discussion before the due date.

Choose two topics from below, and in two to three pages, reflect how cultural and linguistic perspectives influence teacherguardian/caregiver/parent, and student behavior. Be sure to support your reflection with information from the Cultural Competence Formand page 295 of the text.


  • People with disabilities from culturally diverse backgrounds experience twice the discrimination experienced by non-disabled people in the minority community. Both disability and race complicate the situation.
  • Educational opportunities are less available and affordable to individuals with disabilities from culturally diverse backgrounds.
  • There is a lack of mentors and role models for minority individuals with disabilities in the workplace.
  • Mainstream job coaching, on-the-job training, and internships are often not readily available to minority individuals with disabilities.
  • Both mainstream and minority communities and religious organizations tend to overlook their capability to support the employment of minority individuals with disabilities.
  • Cultural differences are not clearly understood by individuals or organizations designing programs to support the employment of minority persons with disabilities.

Your journal must

  • Be two to three pages (not including title and references pages).
  • Exhibit meticulous use of grammar, spelling, organization, and usage throughout your submission.
  • Reference at least three scholarly sources, which may include your course textbook, in order to provide credible evidence to support your ideas.
  • Ensure that all in-text citations, the page format, and references must be written in APA style as outlined in the Writing Center.

Next Steps: Review your journal with the Grading Rubric to ensure you have achieved the distinguished levels of performance for each criterion. Next, submit your document no later than Day 7.

*Note: Future journals will begin to incorporate an opportunity for you to share your reflection in a video presentation format.

Recommendation: The MASE program provides the opportunity for you to create an online portfolio that can be used in your career development and professional practice. Throughout the program, you will have various assessments that can be included in this e-portfolio, and these will be finalized in the Capstone course of the MASE program, ESE699. You may select this assignment and subsequent coursework to include as artifacts. Therefore, it is strongly encouraged you save your coursework on a flash-drive, such as a USB removable drive, or store in a cloud-based option, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or other similar applications.

Success Tip: Be mindful of the Week Six Final Project. The Week Six Final Project involves creating a behavior plan. Preparation for this assignment must begin early to make certain you are planning ahead and saving your work. Review the full instructions for the Week Six Final Project for specific information.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your journal.
