We also ask that You would watch over them, at home and at school and grant them proper direction so that they may learn of Your wonderful virtues. Lead us oh lord God in your way, We offer unto you all our lives, We invite you to come in our heart and lead us In the way you wanted. We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen

Introduction
Practice teaching occupies a key position in the programmed of teacher education. It is a culminating experience in teacher preparation. It provides opportunity to beginning teachers to become socialized into the profession (Furlong et.al, 1988). Performance during practice teaching provides some basis for predicting the future success of the teacher. Outgoing popularity and centrality of practice teaching is an important contributing factor towards the quality of teacher education programmed. During practice teaching working with students in schools provides a high degree of emotional involvement of a mostly positive nature. Student teachers feel themselves grow through experience and they begin to link to a culture of teaching. Practice teaching is an essential component of social work training, yet very little is written about the experience of practice teaching, the role of the practice teacher as the pivot between theory and practice and the need to ensure the development of a sound value base in all social work students are all explored in depth. The contributors demonstrate how they have managed to create stimulating and rewarding learning opportunities for their students by holding on to the essential skills and values of effective social work in the face of continuous organizational re-structuring, resource constraints and an uncertain future. Student teaching, or practice teaching, is one of the most important and formative experiences for me, this is the best opportunity for students wishing to become teachers. As Student teachers at Justice Cecilia Munoz Palma I observe first the subject teachers at work so as to learn about teachers' skills, strategies and classroom achievements. I also evaluate my own teaching experiences through conferencing with teachers and lecturers and, through self-reflection, implement a variety of approaches, strategies and skills with a view to bring about meaningful learning. In this way I gain experience in managing and evaluating class work; in maintaining discipline and good order in the classroom; find their own teaching style and personality and become acquainted with school organization and administration.

GUIDELINES AND POLICY AND REFERENCES OF STUDENT TEACHING (LOCAL) Department of Mathematics Graduate Student Teaching Guidelines
Requirements
Admission to the Ph.D. program in Mathematics carries with it a commitment of full financial support for five years, subject only to the condition that the student is making satisfactory progress toward the doctoral degree. This position carries a fixed stipend (the same for all students) for nine months plus tuition and fees. In fulfillment of the requirements for the M.Phil. degree, all students must gain teaching experience as part of their graduate training. The Mathematics Department believes that training in teaching is an integral part of the training of graduate students as future scientists. Moreover, a large percentage of students will look for jobs in academia. Universities now ask for proof that their prospective faculty members are effective teachers, and hence look for some teaching experience as well as teaching letters from the faculty and copies of student evaluations. Thus, all graduate students are given the opportunity to teach undergraduate courses. As part of the policy of the Graduate School of Art and Sciences, the department has created the position of Director of Graduate Student Teaching, who will usually be the Calculus Director. The following guidelines set parameters for graduate student teaching in the Mathematics Department.

Teaching Responsibilities
In general, students in their first year do not teach, but, in order to provide them with useful exposure to the scope of their future educational role, they typically assist in the Mathematics Help Room. All other students are required to fulfill additional teaching duties. The teaching opportunities in the department are as follows: 1. Calculus I-II courses or College Algebra (Math W1003) 2. Teaching assistantships 3. Supervision of sections of the Undergraduate Seminar (1) Graduate students teaching a section of Calculus I-II or College Algebra (Math W1003) are solely responsible for their section: grading homework, making and grading exams, holding office hours. The enrollment is normally limited, to insure small section sizes. Another graduate student is assigned to assist in teaching the section if the enrollment is substantially larger. (2) Graduate students assigned to a specific instructor are required to grade homework, help grade exams, and hold office hours in the Help Room. (3) Students teaching in the Undergraduate Seminar supervise the work and the lectures of undergraduate students. The subject of each individual Undergraduate Seminar is often proposed by the graduate students. The Undergraduate Seminar is supervised by a faculty member.

Selection
Teaching assignments are made by the Director of Undergraduate Studies, who takes into consideration both the teaching obligations of the department and the needs of each Teaching Fellow. With the exception of first year students, all students are assigned teaching duties. Preferences expressed by the students and competence, in particular an adequate command of English, are all taken into account. However, students supported

by a non-University fellowship (such as the NSF VIGRE grants) are exempt if this is a condition of the fellowship. Finally, all teaching assignments are contingent upon a student’s satisfactory academic progress.

Guidance and Training
The Director of Graduate Student Teaching is responsible for training and advising Teaching Fellows.

The Teaching Seminar
First-year students are required to participate in a semester-long seminar on the teaching of mathematics. In this seminar they practice:
o o o o

Creating a web page for a course Writing a syllabus Writing and grading exams Lecturing on a Calculus topic

Usually the students will be asked to prepare an hour-long lecture and will deliver about half of it. The presentation is then discussed by the class and the instructor. Other means of instruction might include giving a lecture in an actual Calculus section, with feedback from the instructor and the class. General advice on the philosophy and practice of teaching in an American University is available in the form of a lecture in the Teaching Seminar, a pamphlet, Teaching Guidelines in the Mathematics Department, prepared by the Department, and discussions held at the beginning of each semester under the auspices of the Director of Graduate Student Teaching. There is also a manual prepared by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, which students may consult: (http://www.columbia.edu/cu/tat).

The American Language Program
All graduate students who are from countries whose native language is other than English must demonstrate oral and written proficiency in English or pass the International Teaching Fellows Course offered by the American Language Program.

Specific Training Requirements
1. Teaching Fellows assigned to Faculty The faculty member is responsible for the training and guidance of the students who are assigned to help him/her teach a course. 2. Calculus sections Syllabi are available on the web for Calculus I-II courses. Meetings are held at the beginning of the semester under the auspices of the Director of Graduate Student Teaching, or a faculty member designated as course head, to discuss the syllabus and other issues pertaining to the course, such as exams and grading policies. At least once a semester, the Director of Graduate Student Teaching or another faculty member delegated by him will visit each class taught by a graduate student for the purposes of evaluation and feedback. 3. College Algebra (Math W1003) The Director of Graduate Student Teaching is responsible for advising the Teaching Fellows who teach College Algebra. 4. Summer session The Director of Graduate Student Teaching will designate a representative for the summer session, usually a faculty member, who is responsible for advising graduate students teaching summer courses.

Evaluation
Student evaluation forms (or an electronic equivalent) are distributed at the end of every course taught by graduate students. The evaluations are kept in the department. The evaluations are one of the elements taken into account in writing letters of recommendation. Needless to say, the evaluations are subject to interpretation. Comments from faculty members supervising a TA or supervising the undergraduate seminars are also taken into account. The Calculus Director will also evaluate the students teaching Calculus sections by visiting their classes.

Fairness Issues
Insofar as is possible, the duties of the various Teaching Fellows are roughly comparable. A point of reference is the amount of time spent by graduate students teaching a section of Calculus. The level of teaching must be satisfactory, both in fairness to the under- graduates who take the courses and as part of the training. It is of course not possible to write a good teaching letter for a student who is not an adequate or dedicated teacher. Likewise, the department cannot appoint graduate students as instructors in the summer session if they do not have an adequate teaching record. Complaints from undergraduate students taught by graduate students come to the attention of the Director of Graduate Student Teaching or the Director of Undergraduate Studies. They assess the validity of the complaints, and find remedies if appropriate. In the past, some instructors have found it useful to distribute an informal questionnaire in the middle of the semester to see if the pace of the course is appropriate and asking for suggestions. Graduate students' grievances should be resolved first by bringing them to the attention of the Director of Graduate Student Teaching or the Director of Undergraduate Studies. If they cannot be resolved at this stage they can be appealed first to the Director of Graduate

Study, next to the Chair of the Mathematics Department, and then to the Assistant Dean for Graduate Teaching at GSAS.

Policy on Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs)
1) A student who receives a graduate research fellowship will in general continue with his or her normal teaching responsibilities. However, at the request of the Principal Investigator on the grant supporting the GRA (who will usually be the student's adviser), the student may get relief up to one and a half years from teaching. 2) It is understood that all students will have some kind of teaching experience as part of their graduate training, which will normally include at least two semesters of actual classroom experience (i.e. Calculus or College Algebra). Moreover, it is understood that they will have sufficient prior experience as a Teaching Fellow to prepare them for this. However, students holding an outside fellowship which expressly forbids them to teach are exempt from this rule.

Guidelines for Teaching Students with Disabilities
General Strategies for Optimizing Learning: Many teaching strategies that assist students with disabilities are also known to benefit students without disabilities. Instruction provided in an array of approaches will reach more students than instruction using one method. DS offers the following suggestions to assist instructors in meeting the growing diversity of student needs in the classroom, particularly those with disabilities. DS welcomes any additional strategies instructors have found helpful. The Syllabus & The Textbook:

Make class syllabus and list of required texts available by request to students before the start of the semester. This allows time for students to obtain materials in alternative formats and to begin reading assignments.

If available and appropriate, select a textbook with an accompanying study guide for optional student use.

Early in the Semester: Place a statement in your syllabus and make an announcement at the first meeting of the class such as: “If you are a student with a disability or believe you might have a disability that requires accommodations, please contact Dr. Brent Mosser in Student Disability Services, 385 Garland, (410) 516-4720, studentdisabilityservices@jhu.edu. This approach preserves students’ privacy and also indicates your willingness to provide accommodations as needed.

Because many students with disabilities need additional time to process and complete assignments, convey expectations in the syllabus (e.g., grading, material to be covered, due dates).

Announce reading assignments and list in the syllabus well in advance for the benefit of students using taped materials or other alternative formats. Recording an entire book takes an average of six weeks; DS can produce the materials in installments when informed of the sequence in which the materials will be used.

General strategies for Teaching and Presenting:

Begin class with a review of the previous lecture and an overview of topics to be covered that day. At the conclusion of the lecture, summarize key points.

Highlight major concepts and terminology both orally and visually. Be alert for opportunities to provide information in more than one sensory mode.

Emphasize main ideas and key concepts during lecture and highlight them on the blackboard or overhead.

Speak directly to students; use gestures and natural expressions to convey further meaning.

• •

Diminish or eliminate auditory and visual distractions. Present new or technical vocabulary on the blackboard or overhead, or use a handout.

Use visual aides such as diagrams, charts, and graphs; use color to enhance the message.

• • • •

Give assignments both orally and in written form; be available for clarification. Provide adequate opportunities for participation, questions and/or discussion. Provide timelines for long-range assignments. Use sequential steps for long-range assignments; for example, for a lengthy paper

1. select a topic 2. write an outline 3. submit a rough draft 4. make necessary corrections with approval 5. turn in a final draft.

Give feedback on early drafts of papers so there is adequate time for clarification, rewrites, and refinements.

Provide study questions and review sessions to aid in mastering material and preparing for exams.

• •

Give sample test questions; explain what constitutes a good answer and why. To test knowledge of material rather than test-taking savvy, phrase test items clearly. Be concise and avoid double negatives.

• •

Facilitate the formation of study groups for students who wish to participate. Encourage students to seek assistance during your office hours and to use campus support services.

Points to Remember:

When in doubt about how to assist, ask the student directly and check the Instructor Contact letter provided by Student Disability Services. If you still have questions, call the SDS office.

When students ask for extended deadlines, approved absences, or rescheduled examinations, please have the student discuss these requests with Dr. Sanders first.

Confidentiality of all student information is essential. At no time should the class be informed that a student has a disability, unless the student makes a specific request to do so.

The Student Code of Conduct regarding disruptive behavior applies to all students. Clearly state behavioral expectations for all students; discuss them openly in your classroom, on your syllabus, and with individual students as needed.

If you require assistance or guidance concerning a student with a disability, please contact the appropriate DS coordinator.

Accommodations:

Accommodations make it possible for a student with a disability to learn the material presented and for an instructor to fairly evaluate the student’s understanding of the material without interference because of the disability. A student needs official authorization before receiving accommodations. The student is responsible for providing the DS office with current documentation from qualified professionals regarding the nature of the disability. After talking with the student and, if necessary, the instructor, the SDS office determines appropriate accommodations based on the nature and extent of the disability described in the documentation. The SDS office constructs an Instructor Letter specifying authorized accommodations. The student is responsible for delivering the letters to the instructors and discussing accommodations based on the contents of the letter. The process of requesting and receiving accommodations is interactive; all people involved—the student, the instructor and the SDS office—have a responsibility to make sure the process works. Examples of Reasonable Accommodations, which students with disabilities may require:
• • • • • • •

Use of interpreters, scribes, readers, and/or note takers Taped classes and/or texts Enlarged copies of notes, required readings, handouts and exam questions Extended time on exams Quiet, distraction-free environment for taking exams Use of aids, such as calculators or desk references, during exams Use of computers in class or access to computers for writing assignments and exams

• • •

Taped or oral versions of exams Preferential seating in the classroom An accessible website following the guidelines of Section 508

GUIDELINES AND POLICY AND REFERENCES OF STUDENT TEACHING (FOREIGN)
Guidelines for Interpreting Student Teaching Evaluations
Guidelines for Interpreting Student Teaching Evaluations Student teaching evaluations are the most commonly used measure for evaluating teaching in higher education. There are at least two purposes for evaluating teaching: to improve the teaching and to make personnel decisions (merit, retention, promotion). When using student teaching evaluations for either of these purposes, it is essential to follow certain guidelines to ensure valid interpretation of the data. The following guidelines are adapted from Theall and Franklin (1991) and Pallett (2006).[1] #1. Sufficient Response Ratio There must be an appropriately high response ratio.[2] For classes with 5 to 20 students enrolled, 80% is recommended for validity; for classes with between 21 and 50 students, 75% is recommended. For still larger classes, 50% is acceptable. Data should not be considered in personnel decisions if the response rate falls below these levels. #2. Appropriate Comparisons Because students tend to give higher ratings to courses in their majors or electives than they do to courses required for graduation, the most appropriate comparisons are made between courses of a similar nature. For example, the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts average would not be a valid comparison for a lower division American Cultures course. #3. When Good Teaching is the Average When interpreting an instructor’s rating, it is more appropriate to look at the actual value of the rating instead of comparing it to the average rating. In other words, a good rating is still good, even when it falls below the average. #4. Written Comments

Narrative comments are often given great consideration by administrators, but this practice is problematic. Only about 10% of students write comments (unless there is an extreme situation), and the first guideline recommends a minimum 50% response threshold. Thus decisions should not rest on a 10% sample just because the comments were written rather than given in numerical form! Student comments can be valuable for the insights they provide into classroom practice and they can guide further investigation or be used along with other data, but they should not be used by themselves to make decisions. #5. Other considerations · Class-size can affect ratings. Students tend to rank instructors teaching small classes (less than 10 or 15) most highly, followed by those with 16 to 35 and then those with over 100 students. Thus the least favorably rated are classes with 35 to 100 students. · There are disciplinary differences in ratings. Humanities courses tend to be rated more highly than those in the physical sciences. #6. One Final Point Teaching is a complex and multi-faceted task. Therefore the evaluation of teaching requires the use of multiple measures. In addition to teaching evaluations, the use of at least one other measure, such as peer observation, peer review of teaching materials (syllabus, exams, assignments, etc.), course portfolios, student interviews (group or individual), and alumni surveys is recommended. Contact the Center for Teaching Excellence (310-338-2772) if you need assistance in adopting one of these alternate measures or have any questions about these guidelines.

Pallett, W. “Uses and abuses of student ratings.” In Evaluating faculty performance: A practical guide to assessing teaching, research, and service. Peter Seldin (ed.). Bolton, MA: Anker Publishing, 2006.

Theall, M. and Franklin, J. (eds.) Effective practices for improving teaching. New Directions in Teaching and Learning, no. 48, San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1991. The following describes how to compute the response ratio for a given set of forms from one section of one course. First, note the number (n) of forms returned and the number (N) of students in the class, compute the ratio n/N, and then multiply by 100% to convert the ratio to a percent. Then, for each question under consideration, from this percent subtract the percent of blank and “Not Applicable” responses. The result is the response ratio for that particular question. If the result does not meet the threshold recommended in Guideline #1 above, the data from that question should not be considered.

Timeline All degree requirements must be completed within five (5) years from the semester date of admission as a matriculated student. NOTE: When a student is admitted or readmitted to an SPD degree or certificate program, students may petition SPD to have courses that are older than five (5) years, and no older than 10 years, individually evaluated by the appropriate department/faculty to determine if the credits may be applied toward current SPD degree/certificate requirements. Grades in such courses must be "B" or better. (B- grades are ineligible for review.)

Teacher Certification This New York State registered and approved program qualifies students for license upon successful degree completion. Students must complete all courses required for the MAT. Teacher preparation candidates must also complete certification workshops in child abuse, substance abuse, and school violence. In addition, they must be fingerprinted.

Stony Brook offers these workshops monthly. See Certification and Licensing Workshops for details. Stony Brook University requires that students must have completed an undergraduate degree and have at least 36 credits in the content field for admission to the MAT program. This course of study should be substantially the equivalent to that of a Stony Brook undergraduate degree program.

CURRENT ISSUES OF EDUCATION

By G. Olsen|M.L. Fuller Pearson Allyn Bacon Prentice Hall

As we have seen, public policy can drive the issues that create a cultural climate looking for change. Several issues that are finding platforms for discussion among politicians, teachers, and communities could provoke changes in the next few years. The trends we currently see infamily support services are:

States adopting a variety of tax credits for working families giving them help with childcare and in-home care expenses (Hirschhorn Donahue, 2006)

Family-leave policies, allowing both parents opportunities to spend time with newborn babies in the early formative years of infancy

Flexible work schedules and job-sharing opportunities for parents who want to continue on their career path

Internet and media control legislation to assure parents that children will not view or find inappropriate materials while using these media for learning

Improvement in the quality and availability of infant and toddler care

Educational trends and research that we will see in the coming years include:

Standards-based education, focusing on outcomes for student learning (Schumacher, Irish, & Lombardi, 2003)

Full-day kindergarten providing more time for in-class experiential learning (Walston & West, 2004)

Research on the economic impact of the child-care industry and its effect on the local community; employment needs are identified to maintain a workforce (Rolnick & Grunewald, 2003).

Prekindergarten opportunities for every four-year-old in the United States, the universal Pre-K movement (Pre[K] Now, 2006)

National School Readiness Indicators Initiative, creating a set of measurable indicators defining school readiness (Getting Ready, February 2005)

Quality Rating Systems, a system of rating the quality of child-care programs that is tied to incentives and reimbursement rates (NCCIC, June 2002)

TEACH, professional development for early-care and early-education teachers tied to education and training incentives (TEACH, 2004)

Early childhood assessment, looking at appropriate assessments spurred on by the debate surrounding the Head Start National Reporting System assessment (Horton & Bowman, 2001).

KEY ISSUES IN PHILIPPINE EDUCATION
Literacy rate in the Philippines has improved a lot over the last few years- from 72 percent in 1960 to 94 percent in 1990. This is attributed to the increase in both the number of schools built and the level of enrollment in these schools. The number of schools grew rapidly in all three levels - elementary, secondary, and tertiary. From the mid-1960s up to the early 1990, there was an increase of 58 percent in the elementary schools and 362 percent in the tertiary schools. For the same period, enrollment in all three levels also rose by 120 percent. More than 90 percent of the elementary schools and 60 percent of the secondary schools are publicly owned. However, only 28 percent of the tertiary schools are publicly owned. A big percentage of tertiary-level students enroll in and finish commerce and business management courses. Table 1 shows the distribution of courses taken, based on School Year 1990-1991. Note that the difference between the number of enrollees in the commerce and business courses and in the engineering and technology courses may be small - 29.2 percent for commerce and business and 20.3 percent for engineering and technology. However, the gap widens in terms of the number of graduates for the said courses.

On gender distribution, female students have very high representation in all three levels. At the elementary level, male and female students are almost equally represented. But female enrollment exceeds that of the male at the secondary and tertiary levels . Also, boys have higher rates of failures, dropouts, and repetition in both elementary and secondary levels. Aside from the numbers presented above, which are impressive, there is also a need to look closely and resolve the following important issues: 1) quality of education 2) affordability of education 3) goverment budget for education; and 4) education mismatch. 1. Quality - There was a decline in the quality of the Philippine education, especially at the elementary and secondary levels. For example, the results of standard tests conducted among

elementary and high school students, as well as in the National College of Entrance Examination for college students, were way below the target mean score. 2. Affordability - There is also a big disparity in educational achievements across social groups. For example, the

socioeconomically disadvantaged students have higher dropout rates, especially in the elementary level. And most of the freshmen students at the tertiary level come from relatively well-off families. 3. Budget - The Philippine Constitution has mandated the goverment to allocate the highest proportion of its budget to education. However, the Philippines still has one of the lowest budget allocations to education among the ASEAN countries. 4. Mismatch - There is a large proportion of "mismatch" between training and actual jobs. This is the major problem at the tertiary level and it is also the cause of the existence of a large group of educated unemployed or underemployed. The following are some of the reforms proposed: 1. Upgrade the teachers' salary scale. Teachers have been underpaid; thus there is very little incentive for most of them to take up advanced trainings. 2. Amend the current system of budgeting for education across regions, which is based on participation rates and units costs. This clearly favors the more developed regions. There is a need to provide more allocation to lagging regions to narrow the disparity across regions. 3. Stop the current practice of subsidizing state universities and colleges to enhance access. This may not be the best way to promote equity. An expanded scholarship program, giving more

focus and priority to the poor, maybe more equitable. 4. Get all the leaders in business and industry to become actively involved in higher education; this is aimed at addressing the mismatch problem. In addition, carry out a selective admission policy, i.e., installing mechanisms to reduce enrollment in oversubscribed courses and promoting enrollment in

undersubscribed ones. 5. Develop a rationalized apprenticeship program with heavy inputs from the private sector. Furthermore, transfer the control of technical training to industry groups which are more attuned to the needs of business and industry.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN (CAREER PLAN)

NARRATIVE REPORT
Student teaching is required for students who are not yet certified to teach. It is different from a practicum, which is required when a student already holds certification to teach, yet wants a certificate extension to teach another area of specialization; they are both college-supervised field-based experiences. As a student teacher essentially I shadow my cooperating teacher for about one week, eventually gaining more responsibility in teaching the class as the days and weeks progress. Eventually, as a student teacher will assume most of the teaching responsibilities for the class including class management, lesson planning, assessment, and grading. Thus, it able to more fully experience the role of the teacher as the classroom teacher takes on the observation role in the class. The first few days of watching the 1st year students intimidated me because I had never been in a classroom setting like that and not been the student. The cooperating teacher was great, he very accommodating and after each day would ask me if I had any questions and would answer them thoroughly. He was also one of the most positive people I have ever met. He could find the good in almost every situation which is refreshing because in my experience with teachers in my own schooling I have found that many teachers are quick to judge and usually do so in a negative manner. By the time I did my lesson I was comfortable with the students and the classroom. I was also comfortable because the cooperating teacher had gone over my lesson with me the day before and gave me pointers on how to approach each objective. I found this to be a rewarding experience. I feel I left the class everyday having learned more than the students I was helping. Working with only many students in one day gave me a chance to get to know the student I was helping which made both the student and I feel more comfortable each day. Along with these feelings of comfort, the student’s behavior improved the longer I was there.
