It also showed me how important the ASCA model is and how practical it is to use. The benchmark helped me coordinate and collaborate with my group to ensure our goals and information was accurate. Also, it expresses how important accountability is to school counseling programs because it shows how the program was successful and what might need to change. This benchmark is an assignment that I will use later as a remainder of the ASCA model. o Rate 3,3,3 EDCE 698 Benchmark Assignment o Statement This benchmark is an analyze of my abilities as a counselor which I use to know what skills I need to work on.
Evolving methodologies for curriculum and instruction are essential to improving how we educate. McMillian positions that essential to this is understanding the value of scientific inquiry. He explains, “the principles of scientific inquiry provide the foundation for conducting studies…analyzing educational problems, making decisions, and designing, conducting, reporting, and evaluating” (McMillian, 2016, p. 7) to provide significant benefits for engaging students and affecting achievement. Among the changing methodologies is the consensus that the use of STEM-education concepts are necessary to prepare students for 21st century skill-building. Subsequently, this has led to an instructional methodology that highlights math-centered curriculum, and the instruction of science and technology as independent of core content.
Riley College of Education and Leadership prepared me for future influence through providing me opportunities to grow academically. The mission of the College of Education is to prepare scholar practitioners who can inspire, influence and impact diverse groups of people. ("Walden University," 2014, p. 4) This resonates with me because I feel that I was called to inspire diverse learners. This is what has shaped my career as a teacher. The best teachers are always learning.
Curriculum models provide a structure for teachers to “systematically and transparently map out the rationale for the use of particular teaching, learning and assessment approaches” in the classroom, and are regarded as an effective and essential framework for successful teachers (O’Neill 2015, p27). Feeding into a particular curricular stance, it is essential to recognise the multiplicity of sources which will govern this individual framework. Oronstein and Hunkins observe that, when designing a curricular stance, educators must first consider the “philosophical and learning theories” which will inform their “design decisions” (2009, p182). This approach is essential to ensure that the curricular approaches one selects are “consonant with
Assignment 1: Curriculum Inception Angela Bass Dr. Melanie Gallman EDU 555 Strayer University January 20, 2018 Introduction Curriculum development describes how a training or teaching organization plans and guides learning. It involves planning, implementation, and monitoring of a systematic process that creates a positive learning environment. It is, therefore, important to design a pilot curriculum that ensures proper evaluation of the content, teaching materials as well as teaching methods involved in the changed curriculum (McKinn, 2008). The pilot curriculum also serves as an assessment tool for acceptance of the curriculum by the faculty and students. It also aids in recognizing the gaps created and the missing content.
Introduction The reflective log will critically discuss and reflect on the process of producing an academic poster as part of a group. To do this, it will focus on the main challenges and positive experiences of working collaboratively with others. Whilst discussing the impact it has had in raising my awareness of the importance of partnerships and collaboration within multi-agency working. Finally, it will reflect on how gaining a better understanding of multi-agency working and the role I take within a group impacts on my future professional practice. Session One When selecting our groups I was approached by another student who wanted to join us.
Explain standards-based curriculum/instruction and balanced assessment to these concerned parents. In your response. Standard-based curriculum/instruction is a curriculum that is developed by looking at the standards that our district and our state have adopted. Those standards identify the skills, knowledge, and dispositions that students should demonstrate to meet these standards. It also supports identifying activities that will allow students to reach and meet the goals stated in the standards.
Similarly, it is essential for students to use their real-life experience to connect school learning to students’ lives. According to Brown (1999), “if minority students are to enjoy the benefits that should accrue from schooling, their culture must figure prominently in the process”
I will study hard in order to fully understand my mission as a social worker. I will bring fresh ideas to my agency while upholding the social work values. I want to help my clients set attainable goals and also help them achieve those goals. This is using the Task-Centered Model of Social Work. I have volunteered at several schools and assisted teachers with students.
Walden University’s College of Education has a similar vision. In the vision, Walden is “commited to the pursuit of positive social change through education.” The reason I am pursuing this degree is so that my students can do the same thing that Walden is teaching it’s students to do. All of the social activists, presidents and CEO’s in this world learned what they know from a teacher. They are able to impact the world, because they were given the tools to do so. My goal as a teacher is to equip all of my students with the tools to make a difference.
The impact of schools help shape the world’s future leaders. They need skills like professionalism, communication, teamwork to help them along the way. This also shows how different areas have some advantages and disadvantages that affect the student and determines their future endeavors. How am I going to apply what I learned? I could apply what I’ve learned into my decision on where I want to teach.
In terms of curriculum planning and initiatives to select core texts for instruction, at least one conversation should be held in regards to the real world application and relevance of a text. The idea that a text is relevant to the current society as well as student lives is crucial to a successful school environment. Students must be able to make direct connections between what they are reading and the world around them. Teachers are the necessary connectors of the concepts. Therefore, if a text were to be chosen that encapsulates real world application and relevance in a modern society, that obvious choice is Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
More importantly, the outcome of this study can be a measure to help stakeholders establish whether there is a need to design and implement teacher technology training. Therefore, providing a structured online support network (OSN) can prepare, assist, and support teachers with becoming agents of implementing and utilizing innovative and available technology resources (Blau & Peled,
Preamble to Petition According to the 2015-2016 Searcy High School handbook, “education is a life-long process of paramount importance to the well-being of the individual and the democratic way of life, it is necessary for students to develop positive work habits, adaptability, understanding, and the ability to live and work in a diverse, technological society.” It is the teacher’s duty to fulfill this mission statement; it is the student’s right to have a teacher who is competent and capable to do such. It is also the teacher’s duty to create a safe and structured learning environment. Mattie Setzler is failing to strive for excellence, failing to be competent, failing to create a safe and structured learning environment for her students;
