Understanding and Coping with Change
Change is everywhere, yet very few people seem to embrace the concept. We are, for the most part, creatures of habit and follow daily routines. When change occurs, our activities and thought patterns are disrupted.
Write a three APA formatted paper (excluding the title and reference pages), using a minimum of three scholarly sources in addition to the textbook, analyzing the internal and external factors contributing to an individual’s resistance to change.
Describe a situation where you or someone you know was resistant to change as identified in one of following areas:
- Lack of understanding
- Lack of trust in management
- Differing assessments of the need for change
- Low tolerance for change
Explain whether the resistance to change was caused by an internal or external factor. Using Kotter’s theory for change, provide a plan for overcoming that resistance. What will be done and how will you know that the plan has worked?
Assignment1: Using SEI Strategies in a SIOP Lesson Plan
Create a SIOP lesson plan in a content area of your choice for a group of ELLs at a grade and English language proficiency (ELP) level that you specify.
Use the “SIOP Lesson Plan Template,” located in the Student Success Center.
Identify and select the ELP Standards from your state.
Create a content objective and a language objective using the English Language Arts Standards from your state.
Consider applicable language acquisition stages of development in your lesson planning.
Include a 500-750 word rationale that includes an explanation regarding how the following aspects of SIOP were accounted for within the design of your lesson:
- Lesson Preparation
- Building Background
- Comprehensible Input
- Practice and Application
- Lesson Delivery
- Review and Assessment
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using the documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
