EDU 644 Week 4 DQ 1 Making a Difference - Biotech Academy
At-riskchildren benefit from access to specific programs that support their success in
a school environment. By providing opportunities that students can connect with,
the probability of them staying in school and matriculating to a two- or four-year
college or university will increase. Biotech Academy in San Jose, California is an
interdisciplinary program that focuses on bioscience. The program and its faculty,
however, provide supports for at-risk students that go far beyond academics. To
prepare for this discussion, watch the nearly 10-minute video Biotech Academy: A
catalyst for change. Note that this video can also inform your completion of the Week
Initial Post: Create an initial post that addresses the following:
a. Share a minimum of three things you observed showing how teachers at Biotech
Academy instigate and maintain student support and success. Be sure to consider
what characteristics they have to have and what behaviors and practices they need
to present to their students.
b. Describe the impact collaboration between teachers, parents, and students has
on student success as well as having a spirit of cooperation instead of competition
c. Discuss two to three observations you made that show relevancy between
Biotech Academy instruction & supports and what students need in post-secondary
education and employment. Be sure to address how having such relevancy for
student learning impacts their ultimate success.
d. Discuss how traditional school environments might learn from Biotech Academy
and employ in their school culture so as to potentially increase graduation rates and
matriculation to post-secondary education and employment for at-risk students.
Guided Response: Respond to a minimum of two peers. In your replies, consider how
your peers’ observations and impressions compare to yours. For example, what did
your peers observe that you did not or that you agree with but did not share in your
initial response? Provide specific feedback to your peers’ regarding the relevancy
between Biotech Academy and post-secondary education and employment, as well as
to your peers’ perspectives regarding traditional school environments adopting
strategies similar to those demonstrated by Biotech Academy teachers. As
mentioned in prior discussions, though two replies is the basic expectation, for
deeper engagement and learning you are encouraged to provide responses to any
comments or questions others have provided you to further the conversation.
