Transcript of Teaching Goal Presentation

my evolving teaching goal: by Emily Skiba "People are often advised to practice moderation in everything they do. The way to succeed in achieving their goals, they are told, is to remain balanced, controlled, and restrained. But this advice is misguided. Instead of being moderate, people should be passionate and intense. Throughout history, moderation has produced nothing extraordinary or exceptional. Excellence in any pursuit requires excess — great enthusiasm, high energy, and extreme effort."

Assignment: Is moderation an obstacle to achievement and success? Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations. THE GOAL This semester, my teaching goal was to present students with materials to read outside of the classroom and to help them commit the content of that reading to memory for later use as evidence in their SAT essay. As a teacher, my goal was to learn what methods best 1) actually get students to read, 2) remember what they read, and 3) be able to use what they read in an analytical essay. Citations
