Week 10 Reflection(s) of the Week



If there are conflicts between students' engagement, performance in formative assessment and summative assessment, how do we assess the effectiveness of the teaching strategies?

Huitong

I found myself cursing group work come unit's end; it must have been the students fault that they didn't understand what I needed then to! It couldn't be me, they must have been goofing off! It would not be until I took a step back from my own teaching to realize that the student's motivation and eagerness to collaborate and learn was there all along, it was my commitment to releasing the tight grip on the text book I held for so long that was holding my entire class back.

Meghan

Creating a Learning Environment

Gigi

A learning community means that everyone works together and helps one another learn, no matter what. Classrooms should have this type of environment for all subjects, but especially social studies which might cover some more challenging topics for students.

Stephanie

Ultimately, I've realized that so much of good teaching and learning is creating experiences and ways for students to engage with their peers, their world and selected materials to develop their thinking and grow their ideas. Virtually this is not impossible, but it is certainly different and often less natural. I appreciated being reminded of the many different instructional strategies teachers can and should implement, but was also saddened that the space for these strategies is in many ways lost now that teaching has gone virtual.

Personal Curriculum Statement Project



Create a thoughtful and brief personal statement to synthesize your understanding of curriculum. Your statement will be in the form of a video or other multimedia creation as a way to present your personal beliefs about the purpose of education for individuals, for society, and for individuals in society. The video should be posted in Vialogues (https://vialogues.com) and the link should be posted in your rhizr.

Your video should highlight and cite curriculum theories that resonate with your experiences as an educator and learner and beliefs and questions about teaching and learning that have emerged from these experiences. This may lead you to make explicit connection between curriculum theories and specific intellectual and professional interests related to designing curriculum and instruction.

Recommended length: 2-3 minutes
