Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
Watch a movie about teaching, such as “Freedom Writers”, “Dead Poet’s Society”, “Lean on Me”, or “Stand and Deliver”. The following are clips for each movie to help you decide which movie you would like to watch:
· Freedom Writers.
· Lean On Me .
Then answer the following questions:
1. Summarize the movie you selected to watch and discuss ways in which the teacher motivated his/her students. Using Chapter 8 of our text, describe the motivational theory employed for each of the strategies you listed.
2. How did satisfying Maslow’s hierarchy of needs impact student learning in your selected movie?
3. How did the teacher in your selected movie display characteristics of a humanistic teacher? Be specific by providing examples and connecting your response to the text.
4. Describe the ideal learning environment for you and explain how it will increase your motivation and ability to learn. What obstacles would hinder the creation of your ideal learning environment?
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts and compare their ideal learning environment to your own. Explain how the differences would affect your learning. Be sure to respond to any queries or comments posted by your instructor. Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
