Describe the problem from Jeff Bliss’s perspective as well as from Ms. Phung’s perspective.

In Chapter 12, Wardle (2013) summarizes the important characteristics  of a culturally relevant teacher. Use this information as a guide or  resource throughout this assignment to help inspire your thinking as you  apply your knowledge of culturally relevant pedagogy toward specific  solutions to problems facing a teacher with a very diverse student  population. This exercise provides excellent practice over the  application of culturally relevant principles in the design of effective  instructional solutions. You will need to design such instructional  solutions within the Final Project, so it is very important to practice  such skills here. Specifically, for this assignment, you will view a  brief video taken with a cell phone by a student in a high school social  studies class. Student “Jeff Bliss” Mad at Teacher at Duncanville High (Links to an external site.) (Bliss,  2013) documents a meltdown Bliss experienced during his World History  course at Duncanville High School in Duncanville, Texas.
