Answer each question with a word count of 350 to 500. The question should be addressed thoroughly, be free of grammatical and spelling errors, and include some type of faith integration or outside research component. You should support your writing with ideas and quotes from the text, but please keep direct quotes brief-if you quote lengthy passages these should NOT be counted as your words. If you include a faith integration component, please avoid simply adding a Biblical reference. You need to address and explain some aspect of the topic using the lens of faith.References should be from one of these books AND an outside source or the Bible: Berger, E.H., & Riojas-Cortez. M.

How did it affect you? Question 6: Identify incidences of disagreement among parents, the community, and the school or school system either in your home community or the community in which you are observing educational practices.
