My three ways of teaching be a facilitator, providing students with the skills and resources needed, and guiding and monitoring as they apply them. 1. Differentiation to make sure all student needs are met, look at data, give Multiple Intelligence Quiz, or both; to determine best practices for students and whole classes. 2. Model for students I do (Teacher) We do (Whole group) They Do (Small group), and You Do (Individual) to give students the opportunities to critically think and solve problems on their own. My classroom expectations are as follows learning will be interactive, meaningful, and applicable. Students will be expected to put forth maximum effort in order to reach their full potential. Respect for oneself and others will be vital as we will be exploring historical aspects and subjects of different cultures and their norms. Students are to be prepared for class, respectful, and kind to one another, manage their time wisely, and be mindful of the use of electronics in the classroom at all times. This year’s goal is intentionality in all we say and do. We are fully responsible for deciding our emotions, attitudes, and responses to others and our circumstances. 19′-20′ taught us it is just about the only thing we can control and there is power and beauty in that. It is my goal as we partner to make this school year a lifelong positive and inspirational educational experience.
