Ed Psy. Summative Assignment
: 4th January 2018
Overview of the task
Discuss the role of behavioural, cognitive, developmental, moral, motivational and social factors in educational/learning settings in relation to the issue chosen
Outline how theory and research can enable educational practitioners to understand individual learning and development and what strategies could be used to improve learning
Issues to choose from
: - Disruptive behaviour during taught activities; Disengagement - not joining in with learning activities; Negative behaviour towards someone from a different social or ethnic group; Failing to meet learning goals
Select an age group that you will be discussing this issue relating to; explain how the issue chosen can impact on both the student and other students learning;
Consider how two key theoretical perspectives covered in the module could explain the causes of this behaviour
If the issue you choose could indicate a SEN, briefly discuss the disorder the topic chosen may elude to, and explain other indicators that those working in learning settings would need to be aware of
Critically compare and evaluate how useful these theories are for understanding the individuals issue
Suggest key strategies or techniques that can be applied based on your chosen theories (and discuss their effectiveness based on research)
What do you mean by two key theoretical perspectives?
Do we definitely need to discuss a SEN ?
And can this be explained further
Explain the assignment in easy terms, the briefing is difficult to understand - an overload of information
Could we have more guidance? it seems an awful lot to discuss in only 3000 words
Will we be allowed an extra 10% so 3,300 words and does that exclude titles and sub titles?
