Assignment: Creating an At-Risk Program



Resources: Ch. 8 of Multicultural Education and Appendix E.


Imagine that you have been asked to serve on the advisory board for a new, alternative school program in your school district. The advisory board must specify the factors that will be considered in determining which students qualify for the program and they must create a plan that can be presented to the school board for approval and potential implementation at the beginning of the school year two years from now.


Create a plan for identifying potential students for the new at-risk program by completing the following points:


o Consider the following question in your plan: Because you do not have the resources to serve an entire at-risk population, how will you focus your resources to create the greatest impact for your community?


o Use at least three sources, other than the text, to support your plan.


o Cite your sources according to APA guidelines.


o Construct either a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper or a 15- to 20-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with presenter's notes, addressing each of the following questions in your plan:
§ What part of the at-risk population will the program serve?
§ How will students be identified for the program?
§ How will the program address the needs of the students?
§ What additional social resources are available in the community that can be utilized for greater success?
§ What are the potential positive impacts for the district, students, and community?
§ What are the necessary steps for implementing the program?


Refer to Appendix E for directions and tips on building a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation. If you choose to do the presentation, your title slide and reference slides do not count toward the final slide count, and it is recommended that you do two to three slides per topic.


Use APA guidelines to format your paper, if you select to write a paper.


Post your assignment as an attachment.




Appendix E

Microsoft® PowerPoint® Basics

For the assignment, Debunking Gender Misconceptions, you are required to use Microsoft® PowerPoint®. This appendix is meant to give you the very basics for using the PowerPoint® program

Getting Started

Open Microsoft® PowerPoint®.
Start a new presentation: Click on Blank Presentation, then OK.
Choosing a slide layout: Click on Format, then Slide Layout. A good one to start with is one with a header and bullet points.
Type in text for the slide (Suggestion: Put the title of your paper in the top box and then your name and class information in the lower box. Next slide: Overview of paper topics-introduction. Next slide: First topic).
To add presenter's notes: Click on the Notes Page. Click on View, then Notes Page. To get back to the slide, click on View, then Normal.
To add a slide: Click on Insert, then New slide.
To add background color: Click on Format, then Background, and then More colors (for the full palette).
To insert a slide in the middle of your other slides: Go to the left side of the screen, where it gives you an overview of your slides, and click on the place where you want the new slide to go. Click on Insert, then New Slide.
To change the order of your slides: Go to the presentation overview on the left side of the screen, click on the slide you want to move, and then drag and drop it where you want it to go.
Save your presentation just as you would save a Microsoft® Word document by clicking on File, then Save,
Note: If you get stuck, use the Help feature to figure things out. Click on Help, then Microsoft® PowerPoint® help and type in a keyword.
