MY STORY
I was an inquistitive and creative individual.

I struggled in school as a visual and spatial learner.

I fell in love with the arts specifically visual arts and theatre arts.

I left home at 17 to study Technical Theatre at Niagara College in Welland, On

I graduated with a 2 year diploma in Theatre Arts- specializing in Scenery Painting
I spent 25 years honing my skills as a scenic and visual artist, in the theatre, film and televsion sectors

4 years ago, I left the workforce in order to fulfill a lifelong goal in higher education- I graduated from McMaster University with an Honors Degree in Fine Art, 2012

In 2013 I was accepted to Brock University's Teacher Education Program- I graduated in May of this year- My teachable subjects are Art and English, grades 7 to 12


I AM ONE OF
9000
NEWLY GRADUATED TEACHERS IN ONTARIO

OVER
3000
NEW TEACHERS ARE ENTERING CANADA PER YEAR FROM OTHER COUNTRIES IN ORDER TO FIND WORK
THE REALITY
WHAT CAN A NEW TEACHER DO TO GET AHEAD??
VOLUNTEER AT A SCHOOL
FIND A PART-TIME JOB
GO BACK TO THE JOB YOU HAD BEFORE / TRAVEL ABROAD FOR WORK
CHANGE CAREER GOAL


VOLUNTEERING AT SEVERAL DIFFERENT HIGH SCHOOLS IN HAMILTON- IN BOTH THE VISUAL ART AND THEATRE ART DEPARTMENTS

CONTINUING MY ART PRACTICE- CURRENTLY PART OF LISTER ARTS GALLERY IN THE LISTER BUILDING ON JAMES ST. N

SPEAKING AT VENUES LIKE THIS IN ORDER TO KEEP INVOLVED AND CONNECTED IN THE EDUCATION ENVIRONMENT

STILL WORKING IN MY PAST PROFESSION AS A SCENIC ARTIST



WHAT AM I DOING????
* Students need practice on how to think critically
*opportunities to sound opinions and discuss intelligently
*understand the difference between fact and opinion
*learn how to listen to others and to respect others thoughts, ideas and opinions
*Student Centered/ Learners are presented with problems or isssues to be explored and solved
*should be sensitive to learners experiential backgrounds
TEACHER LED INQUIRY BASED LEARNING
*The teacher or educator plays a role as a question asker not an answerer
*The teacher interacts with the students as a facilitator and guide
*Teacher can link the content to to issues themes and problems
PROCESSES OF INQUIRY
*OBSERVING
*CLASSIFYING
*PREDICTING
*INFERRING
*INTERPRETING DATA
*EXPERIMENTING
*COMMUNICATING
*QUESTIONING
HOW DOES IT WORK BEST?
*STUDENTS WORK
COLLABORATIVELY
IN GROUPS OR PAIRS
*STUDENTS SHARE INFORMATION WITH EACH OTHER AND AS A CLASS
*IT HELPS TO CHOOSE TOPICS THAT ARE OF REAL INTEREST TO THE STUDENTS
* HOW THEY CAN MAKE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES AND WHAT THEY ARE ANALYZING
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING: What is it?
THE ACTUAL LIVING THROUGH OF AN EVENT OR EVENTS

*THE LEARNER IS DIRECTLY IN TOUCH WITH
REAL
THINGS AND PEOPLE OR IS INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES THAT
SIMULATE
REAL ACTIVITIES

*THE PROCESS IS LEARNER CENTERED AND ACTIVITY ORIENTATED


THE ULTIMATE GOAL? TO HAVE THE STUDENTS QUESTION IDEAS, CONCEPTS, AND OPINIONS ON THEIR OWN- THESE ARE THE SEEDS TO REAL STUDENT LEARNING!
HOW DO THE STUDENTS BENEFIT?
*STUDENTS HAVE SELF-CONTROL OF THEIR EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES

*THEY MAKE MORE REALY CONNECTIONS TO THE CONTENT WHEN IT HAS PERSONAL MEANING

*FEELINGS, ATTITUDES, VALUES AND EXPERIENCES ARE CRITICAL TO STUDENT LEARNING
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING STRATEGIES
*GAMES
*MANIPULATING SYMBOLIC OBJECTS
*MAKING A MODEL
*CREATING AN ART OBJECT
*ROLE PLAYING
*IMPROVISATION
*SIMULATION
*FIELD PROJECT
*FIELD INTERVIEW
*FIELD OBSERVATION
*
FIELD TRIP
*WORK EXPERIENCE
EXAMPLE: FIELD TRIP
DURING MY PRACTICE TEACHING I TOOK A GRADE 12, ALL FEMALE, SCULPTURE CLASS FROM SIR JOHN A MACDONALD SECONDARY SCHOOL TO THE MCMASTER MUSEUM OF ART TO VIEW THE 2102 GRADUATING CLASS "SUMMA SHOW" ...
