9 DISCUSSIONS DUE IN 48 HOURS Intelligence Would you consider yourself intelligent? How would you define intelligence? Measuring intelligence has been a part of the educational psychology discourse for many years. There are many ways to define and measure the intelligence of a person. You will be taking two different intelligence tests: an I.Q. test and a multiple intelligences test. Take the Free I.Q. Test (Links to an external site.) available at the IQ test for free website and the multiple intelligences test (Links to an external site.) available at the Literacy Works website. Using this experience along with the information from our reading assignment this week respond to the following questions: · How do these two different tests measure intelligence? · Which test do you think was more reflective of your intellectual ability? Why? · How do you feel about the practice of I.Q. testing? · In reviewing your results, what did you learn about I.Q. testing? · How does your experience connect with the information from the text on I.Q.? · Could I.Q. testing be used as a valid tool in the teaching-learning process? Why or why not? · Why are I.Q. tests problematic? Consider diverse student populations. Inclusion Debate Inclusion continues to be a very heated debate as to whether it is beneficial for student learning; including those with and without disabilities. There is much research that supports and also opposes the practice of inclusion. Educational psychology provides us with the ability to examine inclusion based on the theories of learning and behavior and the continued research that aims to either validate or abandon this notion of inclusion. For this discussion, your instructor will divide you into two different debate groups based on support and opposition on the topic of inclusion. Read Chapter 4 to gain an understanding of how legislation mandates that, whenever possible, children with exceptionalities be educated in the mainstream education classroom with other students. You want to get a deep understanding of LRE (Least Restrictive Environment). Review the additional links to review the controversy over inclusion to assist in formulating your defense with support from the literature: · Center for Parent Information and Resources (n.d.). School inclusion. (Links to an external site.) Retrieved from http://www.parentcenterhub.org/repository/inclusion/ · Kids Together, Inc. (n.d.). What is inclusion? (Links to an external site.) Retrieved from http://www.kidstogether.org/inclusion.htm · Thompkins, R. & Deloney, P. (1995). Inclusion: The pros and cons (Links to an external site.) . Issues..about Change, 4 (3). Retrieved from http://www.sedl.org/change/issues/issues43.html Feel free to read additional texts about the topic and be sure to cite. Based on your assigned position, formulate a defense statement that includes the following: 1. What is inclusion and how does the legislative mandate of IDEIA (Individual with Disabilities Education Improvement Act, formerly known as IDEA – Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) support its efforts. 2. Based on your research, provide at least three reasons for your position that is supported by the texts. You also want to provide solid examples to support each reason. Classical and Operant Conditioning Have you ever wondered how you will control a class of students? There are various techniques in how teachers can “manipulate” students to act in a manner that is appropriate and conducive for learning. Behaviorism tells us that learning is observed through changes in behavior. When students respond to situations in their environment, this is when we can see the occurrence of learning unlike cognitivists that suggests learning is also an unobservable change that occurs within the brain. The use of behaviorism is prominent in a teacher’s classroom management plan as this is where the teacher wants to see an observable change in behavior. Read Chapter 5 of our text to…
