Creative Teaching: Designing Creative and Culturally Relevant Instruction
For this final project, you will be a classroom teacher developing a creative and culturally relevant idea, concept, or movement for your school. Think about everything you have seen, heard, discussed, shared, and viewed over the past five weeks. What information stuck out as something you would want to implement in your school or classroom? Was there an idea that you wished you could share with your colleagues? What ideas did you discover that will help your students with being creative while also being culturally relevant? You are going to create a proposal for an idea that you would like to implement in your school. Think about to whom you would need to propose this idea? Your administrator? Colleague? PLC team? For a few more ideas to brainstorm, view this Association of School and Curriculum Development (ASCD) video.
Your presentation can be formatted in a way that is appropriate to your style of presentation. You can write an essay, create a PPT with a voiceover, record a presentation with an accompanying outline (with citations and resources), or use one of the other ideas presented during this course. Included in your presentation/proposal should be the following:
Create an overview of the class/school/target population, including age ranges, grade(s), subject area(s), and relevant micro and macro cultural components. If you are not currently teaching, you may use a prior class, a colleague’s class, or invent demographic information. (2 points) Develop and list the objectives of the instructional experience/idea/concept being proposed: (3 points) Content or Classroom Objectives 21st Century skills (emphasis on creativity) Cultural competencies to be explicitly addressed with the experience/idea/concept Propose how the instructional experience/idea/or concept will be used in order to meet the Outcomes you listed in Park II. Will it include: (3 points) Creativity – How will creativity be encouraged? Problem solving – Will the activity focus on solving a problem?

Next Steps: Review and Submit the Final Project
If you are enrolled in the MAED Program, it is imperative that you keep copies of all assignments completed in this course. You will return to them for the portfolio that you will create in your final MAED course. This portfolio is a culminating project that will demonstrate that you have met program outcomes.
