students’ backgrounds, passions, skills, interests, and
special needs from a variety of
sources. This helps me to see what they need and what type of learner that they are. Assessments Assessments provide us with insightful information. They drive our lessons, enable students to reflect and help us to see different levels of understanding. Game Day- Student chosen assessment Personal Reflection At the beginning of each unit in writing, students get an opportunity to view some mentor texts. At this point, students list work in partnerships and in groups to list specific crafts to the particular genre being taught. Students then work together with me to create goals for that unit. Throughout the unit, students revisit these goals. At the end, students are given an opportunity to do a self reflection. Use of Questioning Student Engagement I strongly believe in having an open communication with the families. I develop this relationship by sending out monthly newsletters, having publishing celebrations, email daily, speak with doctors, therapists and tutors. I also invite parents in to be an active participant in a lesson. This is one example of a newsletter that I sent out to the famiies. Students set goals At the beginning of the year, Students take time to reflect on the previous years as a learner. They then set goals for themselves as a learner and as an individual. These are hung in the room as reminders throughout the year. In this math lesson, while students were creating arrays, many Students came up with theories. We recorded them. As discoveries were made, students came up and jotted down their findings and revised their theories. Mid-year reflection Students also reflect in the middle of the year. In this photo, we did the reflection in the form of a New Year's celebration and made resolutions. Students set goals for themselves, reflect and revise them. They do this in many different ways. They do it at the beginning of the year... Students also reflect at the end of every unit. Peers provide each other with positive feedback during a writing celebration. Then, students take the time to reflect on this feedback as well as the entire process that they have gone through. Questioning is a crucial part to teaching. I truly believe that questioning should deepen the understanding of an idea. I use higher level questioning that encourages students to create hypotheses. I use questions that help students build on prior experiences or help them to arrive at a new understanding. Because of the environment that I create, I will hear students using similar questioning techniques. I am constantly trying to look at ways to enhance the questions that I use in my class. I love getting feedback from wherever I can- I will ask my principal, colleagues, staff developers and even my students. I enjoy being a learner too! Engaged students are intellectually active. I engage my students by really understanding who the students are in my classroom. I also thoroughly think about the activities, the grouping of my students, the resources/choices and the structure and pacing of my room. I think true evidence of engagement is in what the students are doing and talking about. Teachers have many professional responsiblities. I believe one crucial part of this, is to communicate and develop a partnership with the families in the classroom. It is also imperative that teachers work closely with collegaues and see themselves as a member of a professional community. I work hard to develop an open communication with the families in my classroom. Some of the ways that I do this are:
* monthly newsletters
* daily emails
* updating my web page
*working with doctors, specialists and tutors
* publishing celebrations This is a "press pass" that I created to simulate a newspaper company during our writing workshop. During our mystery study, I created detective cases because students asked to create agency names for their book clubs. They wanted to feel like actual detectives. I continuously reflect on my teaching practices and lessons that I use. I feel that this helps me to enhance my teaching practices and positively impacts my students' learning.
