When we taught our lesson on Environmental health, we started by asking the class to write down what they thought the most problematic and most common pollutant we have today. We then told the class to hold on to it at till a later time. We then went into our lesson were we talked about three types of pollution; Air, Water, and Land. We went through and discussed what qualified for each pollutant, and discussed their health risks. We then broke the class into three groups and they read some material on how to prevent or help clean up the pollution for a specific type such as Air. We gave the groups about two minutes to go through their information and then had them share some of the facts they felt were the most important to know. To end the class we returned back to the question at the beginning of the hour and ask the students to put in the solution they think would work best for this. I thought my peer teaching experience went very well. I felt very comfortable standing in front of the class and teaching the lesson that Jake and I planned. The class was very respectful and joined in on the discussions with enthusiasm. The lesson we had planned went along smoothly and without a hitch. I really enjoyed being able to stand up there and help others understand more about a topic I thought was worth learning. I am very excited to have this be my profession every day, even though it might not go as smoothly every time. Overall there are a few things I would change. First off I would like to change the video to student portion rather than the teacher’s workshop. In reality I would show the video in both, but with the students you could involve more learning into it. The teacher workshop, it was in there to encourage them to involve environmental health into their lesson where in the class room you could construct more of a dialogue of how this could be prevented.

...Upon completing the Teaching Prospective Inventory (TPI) questionnaire the result gave me an interesting insight to views as a future educator. The results were as followed: Transmission (31), Apprenticeship (39), Developmental (40), Nurturing (33), and Social Reform (34). The results on the profile sheet are quite consistent with how I view myself as a person. My high overall scores in the developmental and apprenticeship make perfect sense due to my own development in education. As a mentor, student, and an athlete I have learned to understand the fundamentals of learning skills and truly comprehend them in order to use them effectively and pass the on the same skills along to others. I was in fact a bit surprised by my nurturing and social reform scores. I received a lower score in nurturing than I would have estimated, yet a higher score in social reform than I imagined. I figured I would have score higher in nurturing since I have 4 years of experience in the K-12 system, but when I received a higher social reform score it made sense. I spent a lot of time explaining to the children about what and why society needs them to be good people. Overall I feel the scores are truly reflective on the way I have learned and will teach children. I expectations for my student will be for them to understand the critical skills needed to be successful in their educational and future professional careers. I would also expect them comprehend the role education will play in their......

...and material preparation, and I believe you make approximately 19 cents an hour.   And then people say, yeah but teachers get three months off for summer, and then we all clutch our guts and die laughing because WHATEVER, MAN. Like teachers leave on the last day of school and just show up on the first with a miraculously prepared classroom and a month’s worth of lesson plans. But seriously, thanks for the laugh. The amount of work and energy you pour into your work and our children is so astonishing, it is a crime that you don’t all make 150K a year. Since you couldn’t possibly do it for the money, we can only assume you love your job and love our kids. Can you understand how much we appreciate you?   You are doing far more than teaching our kids the building blocks of knowledge and learning; you are helping us raise our children. You provide a second environment in which they have to practice respect, obedience, teamwork, diligence. We tell them take initiative on your work and they are like this house is a drag, and then they come home from school and say I’m starting this project early because Mrs. Pulis says to take initiative, and we wonder if you have magic powers or if our children are just willfully obtuse. The answer is…yes.   That high standard you set for our kids? We freaking love it. Thank you. Thank you for insisting on kindness and respect, excellence and persistence. Thank you for sometimes saying, “This is junky work and you can do better. See you......

Making Non-Teaching Mind for Teaching

...Making non-teaching mind for teaching ! Despite of signing job contract and submission of original degree etc., three to four teachers shift during one academic session in almost every school. Reasons are very simple. We have boys and girls as teachers who are: * Joining a school system for getting some initial teaching experience only and searching for better opportunities in other schools and colleges * Studying privately or through distance learning programs * Waiting for admission opening in their target college or university apropos of higher education * Joining a school system to earn plus get a title to increase their home tuitions or, academy business using this fame * Girls in search of respectful job with minimum interaction with men Or, engaged and waiting for suitable conditions for marriage * Girls waiting for suitable match I strongly suggest these people not to leave their job during the running academic session. Change of teacher is a great loss for school and students. It takes almost 3 months to adjust with new teacher/class if new teacher is competent otherwise your subject is going to be a sinking ship and passengers, the students, are having no welcome aboard. Yes, it’s a difficult task especially for girls but dear ladies you may have a dialogue with your parents, brothers, and spouses that if they allow you to adopt this sacred profession they must support you to fulfill your ethical and professional responsibilities as well...

...motivated to study harder in a friendlier academic environment. According to a survey done by the Korea Daily, 82% of the students interviewed responded that they would study better with a teacher that can relate to students. The statistics clearly show that students prefer to study with teachers whom they can confide in compared to clear-cut, stern teachers that only serve to deliver information to students. In such an environment, students will be naturally inclined to listen to lectures more carefully and absorb in information at a quicker pace. Consequently, a teacher’s ability to bond with students is a crucial component of teaching because it encourages students to be more studious. Second, the teacher will also be able to teach students efficiently if he or she can relate to each student. To be specific, the teacher can adapt different teaching styles to each student accordingly if he or she knows each student well. I would like to talk about my personal experiences to illustrate this. When I first entered middle school in Korea, I had trouble understanding math concepts quickly. Fortunately, the teacher knew enough about my strengths and weaknesses that she noticed that I was struggling with comprehension. After school was over, the teacher volunteered to explain the concepts again slowly, and I was finally able to understand the concepts. Likewise, a teacher can better help out students learn if he or she is aware of each student’s tendencies and personalities....

Benefits of Co-Teaching

...Co-Teaching Teacher Benefits Walther-Thomas, C. (1997). Co-teaching experiences: The benefits and problems that teachers and principals report over time. Journal of Learning Disabilities, 30(4), 395-407. The benefits for general and special education teachers that were reported by both teacher participants and administrator participants included increased professional satisfaction, opportunities for professional growth, personal support, and increased opportunities for collaboration. Professional Satisfaction. Consistently, co-teachers reported high levels of professional satisfaction as a result of their students' success in these classrooms. They reported that their students' academic and social progress told them that they were "on the right path." Many indicated that they felt good about their participation in this effort because they saw that their programs were getting better over time; they were seeing more benefits and fewer problems and believed that their efforts were paying off. Professional Growth. Many coteachers reported that the experience of working so closely with other professional educators had been the best professional growth opportunity of their careers. Ongoing opportunities to share their unique knowledge bases and professional skills had allowed many to explore new ideas and content areas, and to expand their professional skill repertoires. It is important to note that many also believed that they had never worked harder in their professional......

...RUNNING HEAD: C0-TEACHING Co-Teaching Perspective Gregory D. Lee Concordia University I love teaching when the learning in my classroom is palpable: When I can sense it in the quickening pace of a roundtable discussion or a student’s visible delight in using newly learned jargon; when I can hear the excitement in students’ testimonials about mastering skills that “made a difference” or theories that transformed practices and perspectives. I count these as teaching successes and make it a habit to reflect on their origins so that I can recreate the conditions for their occurrence again and again. My philosophy of teaching is informed by the material I teach, relevant scholarship, and the lessons I have learned from personal teaching successes and failures and more successful through co-teaching. Co-teaching is where two or more teachers work together to plan, set up and deliver the curriculum to a group of students. For use with Inclusive Classrooms co-teaching is often the practice of pairing a special educator with a regular educator in a single classroom. As educators strive increasingly to include students with disabilities in the classroom, the need for regular educators to have greater expertise with students of special needs increases as well. An extra teacher in the classroom also helps to lower the student-to-teacher ratio. This means that there is more individual attention given to each student. I believe that learner-oriented teaching promotes......

Co-Teaching in Urban Secondary School Districts to Meet the Needs of All Teachers and Learners: Implications for Teacher Education Reform

...combine pointing to the need for increased collaborative planning and teaching among school personnel attempting to comply with these legal mandates to serve all students fairly and equitably in general education classrooms. Co-teaching is an approach that helps educators meet both IDEIA and NCLB mandates, and is defined as “two or more people sharing responsibility for teaching some or all of the students assigned to a classroom” (Villa, Thousand, & Nevin, 2008, p. 5). In schools within the United States, co-teaching often involves general education and special education teachers working together in one classroom and used as a supplementary aid and service that can be brought to general education to serve the needs of students with (and without) disabilities through IDEIA. Co-teaching requires a re-conceptualization and revision for traditional teacher preparation. Recent studies show the benefits of co-teaching arrangements for students, teachers, and school organizations (Nevin, Cramer, Salazar, & Voigt, 2008; Villa, Thousand, & Nevin, 2008; Schwab Learning, 2003). At the secondary level, co-teaching has been found to be effective for students with a variety of instructional needs including learning disabilities (Rice & Zigmond, 1999; Trent, 1998); high-risk students in a social studies class (Dieker, 1998) and in a language remediation class (Miller, Valasky, & Molloy, 1998). This research indicates that co-teachers can structure their classes to use more effectively......

...Although there are many things that characterize me as a new teacher, my teaching philosophy is based on a fundamentally optimistic view. I’m currently volunteering at the African Center. I teach basics English to refugees. I believe that all of my students, with the help of the right tools, will be able to overcome any difficulties that the study of a foreign language might present. I don't mean that every student who enters my class will be able to express him or herself equally simply as a result of how I present the lesson, but rather that each of my students will be guaranteed the opportunity to express him or herself to the best of his or her abilities. I believe that one of my best qualities as a new teacher is my ability to inspire confidence in my students so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves regardless of their level of ability. In my language classes, students are required to speak in English at all times: this is not always easy for those who are having their first encounter with this method of foreign language instruction. The first step, then, is to put the student at ease in such a way that even the most timid student is able to make the most of his or her time in the classroom. In my teaching evaluations, many students refer to the type of atmosphere that a language class should have, and to how the learning environment in my classroom allowed them to express themselves: "He created such an amazing class environment; no one was ever afraid......

Printed and Duplicated Materials I do use a lot of printed materials in teaching my pupils. I do find that my pupils do better when we are making use of the board but I do need an evidence to show how the pupil is doing to their parent or guardian and that is by means of printed materials. B. Non-Projected Display Materials I handle kids with different needs; one for example is that I have pupils with Autism. Those who are on the spectrum learn best with visual materials that is why the center that I’m in has a lot of instructional materials to choose from. C. Cine and Video Materials Most of the cases we have in the center are children with communication problem, from speech to language disorder. The use of videos is a good help in exercising their communication. With the catchy tune and the colorful or even funny images it’s with, it surely helps maintain my pupil’s attention. D. Computer-mediated Materials I do make use of the different computer program. I am thankful that there are lot of computer programs that I can download for free, from application to help mu pupils learn facial expression, to learning colors, shapes and alphabets to learning good attitudes.

...place for teachers of faith in public schools. According to the author, teaching is not just a skill or a day of rigid routines. However, it is about knowledge and developing the child as a whole. Teachers help children learn their place in the world and how to interact in social environments. They have high expectations for their students because they know that Christ created them. Faith influences a teacher’s character; therefore, the teachers show love, joy, and integrity in their work. In this article the author gives a few accounts of teachers that were called to serve in different geographical locations and in different situations. In each situation they served their students with joy and love, furthermore, sharing their faith through actions. I agree with the author’s stance on respecting the legal and ethical boundaries when it comes to religion and public schools. There are many different cultures and beliefs in our schools. Therefore, families trust that teachers will not teach or thrust a set of beliefs they deem as the correct beliefs on their children (Eckert, 2014, p. 21). There are many ways I can show the Gospel of Christ’s love through myself without ever having to argue or preach to someone. One way is to practice godly character by being, honest, sincere, and remaining humble. Another way to show Christ’s love is through actions of love, grace, and joy. When God called me into teaching he gave me a passion and desire to spend my life doing this type of......

The discussion represents your mastery of the Course Learning Outcomes 1 & 2 and MAED Program Learning Outcome 8 and reinforces your competency with the MAED Program Learning Outcome 7.  Before the reauthorization of IDEA in 2004, schools were implementing inclusion, but it was not necessarily the ‘norm’; instead, children with a disability were educated in a self-contained classroom within the general school population. Included with the most updated changes was a closer alignment with NCLB (No Child Left Behind) requirement for data-based decisions, more rigorous standards and highly qualified teachers (No Child Left Behind, 2013). Teachers new to the field of education are being taught during their coursework how to implement inclusive, co-teaching practices and are therefore unfamiliar with past teaching practices. On the other hand, teachers who have been practicing for more than 10 years have experiences in both education environments. While it is clear that co-teaching is not the most popular...

In previous weeks, you learned about the value of co-teaching including the benefit to the all the students in the classroom. However, many special educators feel that they are not a content-area expert, that they are seen as a “helper teacher”, or there is not enough planning time to properly define roles and responsibilities (Co-Teaching, 2013). Some may simply default to the classroom teacher because they do not yet have tenure, are unsure of how to approach the topic, or are simply uncomfortable with conflict and want to avoid it.

...who was also previously trained in Giovanni Bellini’s workshop, that he mainly developed his early style. He was also known as a painter of various profane subjects, in which he usually painted nude females to represent beauty and charm, his “ Venus of Urbino” is one them, which shows the goddess of love. These skills drew the attention of intellectually ambitious Italian dukes and aristocrats. His painting methods, particularly in the application and use of color, would exercise a profound influence not only on painters of the Italian Renaissance, but on future generations of Western art. The painting shows nude young woman, reclining on a bed in the luxurious surroundings. The painting represents the allegory of marriage and was a “teaching” model to Guilia Varano, the young wife of eroticism, fidelity and motherhood. The evident eroticism of the painting, in fact, reminded the women of the marital obligations she would have to fulfill to her husband. The erotic allegory is evident in the representation of Venus, the goddess of love, as a sensual and delectable woman staring at the viewer who could not ignore her beauty. The light and warm color of her body is in contrast to the dark background, bringing out her eroticism. The dog at the feet of the woman is the symbol of marital fidelity while, in the background, the house maid looking down at the young girl as she rummages in the chest symbolizes motherhood. The strong sensuality of the painting was therefore consistent...
