Writing Assignment 4: Is There an Education in Your Future?
You have now written three papers focused on different aspects of learning: how your own education has shaped your views of learning, how learning at the college level can be a transformative experience, and how learning may (or may not) propel you into engaging your culture.
For this final paper, I want to challenge your speculative abilities. Based on your own experience and the readings you have done for this unit, what might be some ways you see education changing in the near future? While the context of much of our discussion has been higher education, I am not limiting your focus in this assignment to thinking only about higher education. You might begin by thinking back to some of the problems we’ve explored thus far:
How might future models of learning overcome the banking concept that Freire writes about?
What opportunities and dangers will the aggressive move into online learning present?
How will the continuing steeply rising cost of college affect widespread access to higher education, as well as what we as a society expect of college?
Choosing an area that interests you, such as one of the ideas above (or another idea that has arisen from our readings), write an essay that explores that area and attempts to chart a course through the challenges you see. If it helps to imagine an audience, you might think of yourself on a blue ribbon panel at a conference on “The Future of Education.” Your paper might be the kind of paper presentation you would give at such a conference. WORD OF CAUTION: your paper itself cannot be on “the future of education,” as that would be too broad. Instead, you are a “specialist” in one area of education that you have written on.
By now you have a rich bibliography of readings that you can draw on in writing this paper, and I expect you to make good use of it. You don’t have to cite every writer we’ve read, but your paper should reflect the breadth of your reading. In addition, I would like you to find and use at least one additional source that you have located on your own. You have access to the Dallas College library’s resources, especially its electronic databases of articles. Consider the kinds of sources we’ve been reading thus far: book excerpts, articles from scholarly journals, columns and articles from national newspapers, and a blog article. I am not specifying the particular kind of source you may include, but it should match the level of professionalism of the other sources you cite.
For this essay, you will not use first person pronoun (“I”). Focus on your thesis and the subject matter, not yourself. Avoid phrases such as “I believe,” “I think,” and especially “I feel.”
The paper should be a minimum of 1,250 words (a bit longer than previous submissions).
Follow MLA document design carefully. Failure to do so will result in a grade deduction.
Document all quotations carefully using MLA format.
Proofread your final draft carefully. Avoid such deadly errors as comma splices, run-on sentences, fragments, and faulty possessives. An excessive number of basic writing errors (generally more than five) will result in automatic failure of the essay, regardless of its other strengths.
