Week 1 Assignment

Class Wall Biographical Statement

Participating and getting to know other students in your classes facilitates the creation of online communities at GCU. The Class Wall is a great place for networking and getting to know your classmates. Your first post to the Class Wall will be your biographical statement to be shared with everyone in the class. This biographical statement could be modified for future use in your other classes as well as your professional life. Your biographical statement should include the following:

Biographical information about you and your family, such as, where you are from, what you do for a living, and your hobbies and interests.

A statement regarding your motivation to pursue a graduate degree in secondary education, what you expect from your graduate experience that will be different from your undergraduate experience, and your future career plans.

Your biographical statement should be about 150 words.

Post your biographical statement to the Class Wall within the first three days of class.

Submit your biographical statement on a separate Word file to your instructor in LoudCloud through the assignment drop box after you have posted it to the Class Wall. This assignment is due before the end of Day 3 this week.
