When was this policy/program/practice initially developed?

A 10-12 page paper (double-spaced, APA format) that addresses the following prompt: Describe the history of a contemporary education policy, program, or practice (e.g., charter schools, the Common Core State Standards, phonics-based reading instruction). When was this policy/program/practice initially developed? What problem was it intended to solve? Who were the major players and stakeholders? How has it developed and changed over time? Far more than a summary of events, this essay calls on you to craft an argument about the connections between the past and the present. How did we get to where we are today? What can we learn from the past? In what ways does your historical inquiry position you to make fresh contributions to a current educational issue? Note: Students must reference at least 3 primary source materials in their analysis.

For this assignment you will focus on how you will lead the different adopter categories Rogers (2003) addresses which are innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards INSTRUCTIONS You will create a 5–10-minute recorded presentation using a presentation tool such as PowerPoint, Sway, Google Docs, Prezi etc…explaining how you will work with the different adopters from a Biblical perspective.
