EDU506 SLP
 
For your Module 2 SLP, you are building on the PowerPoint presentation you started in Module 1. Read the SLP overview contained in Module 1 if you have not done so already. The topic of Module 2 is Equal Protection, so you should integrate the legal material (laws, cases, etc.) from the background readings into your information about your chosen institution. Keep in mind that this information should be presented as information that your audience (identified in Module 1) needs to know, so you should provide enough explanation/discussion (likely in the notes section) so that your audience understands how this information pertains to them.
For Module 2, create the following slides (for a total of 11 slides):

1 title slide
2 slides about equity issues related to funding at your institution
3 slides about equity for students with disabilities at your institution
2 slides about desegregation/affirmative action at your institution (can be present day or historical)
2 slides about gender/race discrimination at your institution
1 reference slide

SLP Assignment Expectations
All slides except the title slide and reference slide(s) should utilize the notes section to elaborate on the points made on each slide. In order to be visible and clear for your audience, you should limit the amount of text on each slide, and you can utilize the notes section to add more detail (think of the notes as the part you would speak aloud if actually delivering the presentation). Accurate spelling and grammar is expected. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and your references slide(s)

Strengths in communicating across cultures?

 
Assignment: Your Intercultural Competence Journey: Final Reflection
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
 – Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss), American writer, poet, and cartoonist
In many ways, the quest for intercultural competence resembles a journey. When you first started this course, you may have already had some concepts of communication and culture to aid you in your travels in intercultural communication. As you progressed through the learning experiences of the last 4 weeks, you have hopefully added many additional understandings of communication and culture to improve your intercultural competence. Now, where will you journey with your newly developed intercultural competence knowledge and skills?
As you consider the knowledge and skills you have gained, consider the contexts in which you interact with other cultures every day. How might intercultural competence benefit you personally and professionally going forward? In this Final Reflection, you evaluate your experiences in this course and how you can apply this knowledge in the future.

To prepare for this Assignment:

Review your papers from Weeks 2–5. What are some of the key areas of learning that you gained from the course so far? After using the BASIC and D-I-E tools in the Week 2 Assignment, how have you changed your cultural perceptions and ways of communicating with other cultures?
Consider what you have learned from this course. What have you learned about yourself? What do you consider as your strengths in communicating across cultures? What are the areas that you need to work on developing in order to become more interculturally competent?
Bring to mind an experience in which you interacted with someone from another culture since beginning this course. What knowledge have you already been able to apply to your experiences with people from other cultures? How might you use your knowledge of intercultural communication and competency to improve upon your intercultural interactions in the future?
Reflect on how you can apply your knowledge to other areas of your life. What do you see as some of the challenges you will face when you communicate with people of other cultures? How might you anticipate and overcome these challenges? What application does this course have to you personally and professionally? How can you benefit your community and society at large by implementing the methods and tools of intercultural communication and competency?

Submit a 3- page paper in which you:

Describe the changes you have seen in your perceptions of and reactions to interactions with other cultures. Use your Week 2 Assignment paper and the BASIC and D-I-E tools as the basis of your response.
Explain two or three key elements that you have learned about yourself and your culture. In addition to these elements, identify the strengths you have noticed about your communication with other cultures, as well as the areas in which you need to work to become more interculturally competent.
Using the example you brought to mind in the “To prepare” section above, describe how you have already been able to apply knowledge gained from this course in a real-world experience.
Considering your personal and professional life, articulate how you might use your knowledge of intercultural communication to be an effective communicator across cultures. Define the challenges that you may face when you interact with other cultures in the future, and anticipate how you might overcome these challenges.
Conclude by summarizing how your learning from this course, your experiences interacting with other cultures, and the concept of how being interculturally competent will benefit your community and society in an increasingly globalized, multicultural context.

Discuss how to collaborate with specific stakeholders in a school who can facilitate a successful transition.

 
While language of mandated-reporter statutes across the country varies by state, the essence is consistent. As a mandated reporter, a school counselor must make a report if there is suspicion of abuse, neglect, self-harm, or harm to others. One significant difference is to whom the school counselor reports suspicion of abuse, neglect, or harm. 
It is vital that school counselors in training understand their state laws. Identifying the issue and directing the family to resources are only the first part of the response. Eventually, a student will return to school, and a school counselor plays a vital role in that process. The effects of a crisis, disaster, or trauma can have particular long-term implications for diverse students; therefore, school counselors must be mindful of multicultural considerations in their responses to risk assessment.
This assignment meets CACREP 2016 Standards 2. F 3g, 2. F 5k, 2. F 5l, 2 F. 7c, and School Counseling Standard SC. 2i, SC 3l.
Assignment Directions
Based on the unit readings, the two media resources, and the laws of your state, explain your understanding of suicide risk assessment, trauma identification, and awareness of the signs and symptoms of substance abuse as well as indications of exposure to others’ substance abuse at home.

Identify the assessment strategies used in the video and discuss what additional questions should be asked in a risk assessment for suicide, trauma, or for signs of living in a home where substance abuse occurs.
Identify the level of risk you assigned to Jana, your thoughts on the feedback presented in the media resource Suicide Risk Assessment Response, and the action you would take based on your state law.

Next, examine intervention strategies for connecting a family to community resources, reintegrating a student to school, and collaborating with key stakeholders to ensure a successful transition. Assume the role of the school counselor in this scenario and complete the following:

Outline specific strategies to promote the family’s understanding of and access to community resources.
Discuss strategies to help Jana integrate back into school when she returns from treatment.
Discuss how to collaborate with specific stakeholders in the school who can facilitate a successful transition.

Knowing that crisis or trauma can have specific, lasting implications for diverse people, it is important to consider the aforementioned steps from a multicultural perspective. For the next part, choose an ethnicity other than your own and different from the one presented in the video. Then, examine risk assessment from a multicultural perspective, addressing potential long-term effects, identifying potential barriers, and recommending strategies for overcoming them.

Describe in detail how this assessment would differ when assessing the level of risk of a student of color. Be specific in the questions you would ask and the evaluation of the risk level. 
Explain how you would work with the family. What challenges or barriers do you anticipate and how would you overcome them? 
Examine what specific concerns a school counselor should address regarding the long-term effects of the crisis on someone with this ethnic background.
