There are 8 videos of classroom teaching and diversity issues. You need to watch all videos to complete the reflection paper assignment. Try to think about this in terms of either in-person teaching or virtual or a combination of videos, in-person observation, and interview of a teacher.
These videos are not to offend anyone but to discuss issues of diversity and classroom teaching. The instructor does not want to impose his own views on anyone but to allow you to study issues as a way of the learning process.
After watching the videos and interviewing a teacher or visiting a classroom, you should have enough information to write your final paper. Your final paper will include responses to the following questions:
- Describe any observations in the classrooms or in the videos that highlighted specific classroom management rules/strategies. Make sure to identify the video(s) in your response.
- If you were the teacher in these classes, identify at least two classroom management strategies that you would use. Be clear.
- Finally, based on your personal experiences in-classroom observation and discussions with teachers, share your thoughts about how the classroom management strategies from this course will help you to teach all students in your future teaching assignments. Also, include some ways you could avoid possible ineffective management strategies you may have encountered or viewed in the videos.
e to save Antigone. If Creon had followed the cultural moral to listen to the prophet, he would have been able to save Antigone. As the prophet said misfortune will come if Creon’s actions aren’t undone. Immediately after the discovery of Antigone’s death, Haemon attempts to kill Creon. Although, Haemon fails, and then stabs himself. Eurydice listens to the news from the messenger, and oddly walks back to the palace expressing no emotion. The messenger follows her to find out that she also commit suicide. All of Creon’s hardships come as a result of ignoring cultural morals Creon started Antigone living lavishly with his family. In the end of Antigone, Creon a man hated by gods, and lacking in a family. OedIpus also experiences Peripeteia because of his ignorance of a prophet. Oedipus’ prophecy was that he will be the killer of his father and the husband of his wife. Oedipus completely ignores his prophecy and proceeds to kill a man, later to find out that it was his father. Oedipus also marries the Queen of Thebes, Jocasta, with no hesitation, or thought of the possibility of marrying his mother. Oedipus then has children with Jocasta, with no regard to his Prophecy. After Oedipus and Jocasta discover they are mother and Son Jocasta kills herself. Similar to Creon, Oedipus starts as a king, but ends with a life of adversity.

Creon recognizes that his situation was solely caused by himself. Creon realizes that the cause of his hardships are rooted from his arrogance. Creon understands that he should have acted morally and listened to the Prophet. Sophocles is emphasizing the importance of cultural morals by developing Creon’s adversity. Sophocles shows the audience that the ignorance of cultural morals can lead to extreme hardships. Sophocles also shows the same message through Oedipus catharsis. Oedipus experiences catharsis through blinding himself. When talking to the chorus Oedipus says, “Oh yes, I pierced my eyes, my useless eyes, why not? When all that’s sweet had parted my vision” (Sophocles 73). He accepts the consequences of his sins by blinding himself. He Oedipus recognizes the unmoral life he has lived and the horrible consequences that follow. Sophocles’ message that cultural moral are an important aspect of life is also present in Oedipus the King. Sophocles message about morals is still relevant in the modern world. Nowadays people live horrible lives because of the ignorance of even one moral. Similar to Oedipus and Creon, one moral flaw can turns someone’s life around entirely.
