HowhaveIdevelopedthiscompetencyduringthiscourseorprofessionalseminar/fieldexperience?

I was able to better teach my students, as I took the time to get to know them on and individual and

collective
basis, and learned about their history: academic, social, and family. Knowing my students well

enabled
me to better meet their needs, and understand where they were coming from as learners.

I educated myself about the different religions practiced by my students, so I could better understand

their
lives outside of school, and so that would be aware of any religious practices that may have and

effect
on their education/ day-to-day learning.

I took the time to learn about my students' academic histories, through reading their school files, talking

to
their previous teachers, or researching other schools/ countries they had come from. This again

enabled me to have a better understanding of them, therefore allowing me to help them learn better.

Before teaching a new concept/ skill, I always refreshed my memory, or took the time to ensure my

understanding, before attempting to teach this knowledge to my students. With a more complete

understanding
from my part, I was better enabled to help my students understand and make connections

their every day lives. I also took the time to share resources with my students, such as videos or
to

websites
I found helpful in understanding a concept. I also educated myself on new topics, for example if

a student posed a question I couldn't answer, I would look into it, and then share my
new knowledge.

I consistently used appropriate, professional, and respectful language when addressing any member of

the
school staff. I was sure to keep topic of conversations appropriate and respectful. I avoided

discussions
of others, such as other teachers, student teachers, students, or parents, unless the

discussion
was of a professional nature and was conducted using respectful language.

I spoke professionally, and with appropriate language, when speaking with my students. This was not just
in
the language I used, but in the topics I chose to engage in conversation about. I adjusted my language/
way
of addressing students depending on the situation: depending of age of the students, on context, on

group
size, and on objective (example: teaching a concept vs. engaging in conversation to get to know a

student).

When discussing concerns or comments about students, I did so in a respectful manner, and with only

the
appropriate people, such as my cooperating teacher, other student teachers who worked with the

student,
childcare workers, resource teachers.

I consistently used precise and correct grammar in all of my communications, be it verbal or written.

I often tried to incorporate a variety of learning approaches when developing my


lesson plans, including: small group work, class discussions, hands-on activities,
exploration of a concept/ understanding, technology to accompany the learning
situation, meaningful assignments serving a purpose.

When writing my lesson plans, I imagined how the lesson would play out in my
head; this allowed me to add in considerations for behaviour/ classroom
management, as I was able to anticipate where problems might arise. I was also able
to plan ways to avoid those problems arising in the first place, such as planning
small group work, a hands-on activity, and education game, or quick movements
between tasks.

I often differentiated the level of work given my students, particularly in math, so
that they were practicing a concept at a level at which they could experience success
while still being challenged. I then increased the challenge as students became more
confident.

I always planned for extra/ more challenging work for those students who
understood a concept and needed a further push. I also adapted work and planned
how I would support those students needing extra help/ not yet able to complete a
given task independently.

I always included an backup plan in my lesson plans, as a different direction to go
to should the original lesson not be successful.

I considered QEP competencies in my lesson plans, and had clear learning objectives
for all learning situations I implemented.

My lesson plans are clear and easy-to-follow. I wrote them in detail, so that another
teacher would be able to pick it up and successfully implement my lesson.

I conducted a case study in which I developed tools and lessons to help move my
student toward a long-term goal.

I implemented
lesson which I had developed, lessons developed my by cooperating teacher, lessons

from
a structured program (Success For All), and lessons improvised at that time. In all of the lessons I

implemented
I considered the learning objectives I was aiming for, and taught towards those.

I implemented
learning situations in which students could cooperate with their peers in small groups,

discuss
as a whole class, practice skills independently and in parters, or explore for themselves to

develop
their own understanding.

In
my teaching, I tried to have many resources available to students: be it manipulatives, charts, mind
maps, strategies, technology (iPads), videos, examples. I aimed to have plenty of resources available in

the hope that my students would find something that helped them in their learning.

I tried to plan learning situations and projects that I hoped would be meaningful to students. For example,
in
ELA, instead of having students simply write a short story, each student wrote a story which I made into
a whole class book, for which I designed a cover and blurb, and is now in the classroom. This made the

Whenever I am teaching, I aim to guide students towards developing an


understanding for themselves. I was constantly aware of the way I responded to
student questions, or presented information, to be sure I was not simply telling
answers, or giving all the required information lecture style; rather I chose to
implement learning situations in which students were actively engaged, and were
constructing their own learning and understanding I was there to help them
accomplish this, and guide them in the right direction.

In my teaching, I also focused on teaching students strategies; this encourages
independence, and enables students to construct their own learning, as they can be
reminded to use their learned strategies to answer their own questions, or the
questions of a peer.


When giving feedback, I was sure to be specific and constructive, so that the student
would be able to do something with my feedback to further their learning.

If a lesson was not going well/ the students were not responding well to how I was
teaching, I noted this and changed gears to try something else, be it my backup
lesson, a different learning format, or taking the time to re-explain and re-explore a
previously learned concept.

I detected any behaviour problems arising and tried to deal with them early and
calmly before they disrupted the lesson.

In cooperation with my cooperating teacher, I evaluated students in their


performance on math tests, as I participated in the grading of tests. We then
communicated these grades to parents, allowing for feedback from home, or for
ourselves to give feedback to parents and students.

I practice ongoing formative assessment during my instruction, by actively
observing my students, and watching for evidence of understanding of given
concepts or skills. For example, when teaching math, I had students show their work
and talk through their thinking (either to the class, or through Explain Everything),
which allowed me to detect strengths/ weaknesses/ misunderstandings/ needs for
greater challenge.

I implemented my own classroom management system and specific strategies to ensure the efficient

running
of regular classroom activities. I was responsible for leading the students through their daily

routines
from the start, so they recognized me as an authority figure early on. I established my personal

attention-getting
strategies, which helped to distinguish me as an authority figure, and helped the

students
respond quickly when I wanted their attention. I helped set up classroom expectations: this was
a collective effort between my CT, the students, and myself. I then helped ensure those expectations
were
met.

I practiced preventative measures to avoid inappropriate behaviors, yet if they arose I dealt with them
quickly.
My approach is to not single out or call attention to one student, but rather to calmly and quietly

remedy the problem. I gave explanations for why behaviors were inappropriate, gave natural

consequences, and provided students with ways to change their behaviour or how they could behave

differently
in the future. I established a classroom environment that was positive and respectful, and my

students
were aware I had high expectations for it to remain that way.

I worked with a number of students with learning disabilities, social


maladjustments, or handicaps within the groups of students I taught. I got to know
these students to help me learn how best to meet their needs and teach in a way that
would help them achieve success.

I differentiated my instruction to meet the needs of students with learning
disabilities, or who needed extra guidance, and also differentiated my instruction to
meet the needs of students who were succeeding and needed further challenges. For
example, I planned extension activities or extra/more challenging work for the
students who could be pushed further.

I worked to create a classroom environment where all students are accepted, and
where everybody understands that not everybody is at the same place or level of
understanding, however we are all working towards doing our personal best. I
emphasized that we all have different strengths and weaknesses, and we would
learn best in an environment of support and trust, where students feel comfortable
to ask questions or ask for help.

teacher and was present for many discussions and planning sessions.

I cooperated with resource teachers to determine which students needed extra help, to communicate

what
we had been working on so that the resource teacher could continue providing extra support, and to

listen
and incorporate their suggestions into my future instruction.

I collaborated with a fellow student teacher to develop and implement a three day workshop on Digital
Citizenship,
which we taught to the entire Cycle 3. This was appropriate to the objectives of the teaching

team, as it was a required unit for the students to complete before participating in the iPad program.

I worked within the teaching team made up of my cooperating teacher, a childcare worker, and myself;

worked together throughout the entire field experience, to teach our grade 6 class as well as our
we

streamlined
grade one English Language Arts class. This shows my ability to actively cooperate in an

ongoing
manner with a teaching team.

I was able to share my thoughts and opinions in small scale meetings and conversations related to

teaching, enabling me to experience being a constructive member of a teaching team.

I collaborated with a colleague to implement an art lesson with my grade six


students. My colleague developed the lesson plan, and we then introduced the art
lesson together. I then followed up and finished the lesson, which she had planned.

I collaborated with my cooperating teaching on an ongoing basis when planning for
instruction, evaluating student progress, and adapting our teaching to meet the
needs of students.

I collaborated with my cooperating teacher in implementing a BreakoutEDU
challenge, on two occasions. We worked together to plan and set up this learning
activity, and then carried out the activity together.

I attended a meeting, along with the teaching team, to learn about the use of an FM
system to assist students with hearing loss. We then cooperated to figure out how to
share one FM system between the teaching team, how to be consistent in our use of
the system, and in agreeing to adapt our teaching by using this system to meet the
need of our student.

I was involved in the development of IEPs for our students. I worked with my
cooperating teacher, the class childcare worker, and the resource teacher to
develop appropriate IEPs for all students requiring one.

I attended the QPAT conference, in which I attended workshops and engaged in


professional development.

I developed an Action Plan outlining my goals and plans for my continued growth as
an educator.

I have been able to cooperate and collaborate with other student teachers, sharing
ideas, lesson plans, and classroom management tips.

I have kept files and organized materials and resources used throughout the field
experience, so that I can come back and continue adding to my collection of
educational resources.

I kept a journal in which I reflected on specific teaching moments throughout the
experience, and also kept a record of oral feedback from my CT and supervisor.

HowhaveIdevelopedthiscompetencyduringthiscourseorprofessionalseminar/fieldexperience?

I understand the values underlying my teaching, in that I understand what I believe is important when
teaching
and have developed my personal teaching identity. I believe that I have found my "identity" and

who I want to be as a teacher, and have been able to practice incorporating the values of that identity

into
my everyday teaching. For examples, one of the values I have is getting to know my students well.

On

this field experience I was able to get to know my students extremely well, both individually and

collectively,
and was able to use this to my advantage in creating a pleasant and respectful learning

environment. Another value I hold is maintaining a positive, calm, and caring attitude. Throughout this

teaching experience I aimed to remain positive, calm, and caring, whenever possible. I saw that it is

positive to teach in this way, however I also learned how at times it is necessary to move away from that,

such as when discipline or authority is required.

I have shown that I am able to manage my class in a democratic way, as I listen to all voices in my

classroom equally, and work on creating a respectful environment.

I have been able to justify my pedagogical decisions to numerous parties: to myself, during my lesson
planning; to my cooperating teacher, during the development of my lessons and post-implementation of
lessons; to my supervisor, during post-observation conferences; to parents; and to students.

I have been able to show that I respect the confidential nature of certain aspects of my
work by using pseudonyms while writing about my observations, when completing my
case study, or when writing about students/ student interactions. I have student names
from any samples of student work I have used in my portfolio. I have respected the
privacy of my cooperating teacher and childcare worker by using pseudonyms.

I have avoided any form of discrimination toward students, parents or colleagues as I
treated all students, staff, and fellow student teachers equally throughout my field
experience. I avoided discrimination towards students by not favoring any over others,
and by providing all with equal amounts of attention and care while helping them learn,
and during interactions in which I attempted to get to know my students.
I can provide justifications for all of my teaching decisions, and can explain why I
believe they were made in the best interest of my students.
