  Relationship  to  Conceptual  Framework  –  Realizing  the  Democratic  Ideal    

Illinois  State  University  has  a  historic  and  enduring  commitment  to  prepare  teachers  and   other  school  personnel  who  will  be  responsive  to  the  ethical  and  intellectual  demands  of  a   democratic  society.  To  teach  in  a  democracy  is  to  consciously  take  up  the  challenge  of   improving  the  ethical  and  intellectual  quality  of  our  societal  dialogue  by  including  in  it  as   many  educated  voices  as  possible.   This  course  contributes  to  this  mission  by  focusing  on  looking  closely  at  children  in  relation  to   their  development,  which  adheres  to  the  principle  of  showing  sensitivity  to  the  individual  as   well  as  cultural  diversity.    In  addition,  the  underpinnings  of  this  course  recognize  the   appropriate  teaching  strategies  have  to  be  tailored  to  diverse  learners  as  each  child  is  given   respected  status  in  the  classroom  community  and  the  instructional  support  that  he/she  needs   and  deserves.

    Professional  Conduct  

    Class  Policies  

C&I  210    


This  course  is  part  of  the  pre-­‐service  teacher  education  curriculum  and  as  students  in  this   course  you  are  expected  to  conduct  yourself  in  a  professional  manner  during  class  and  also   during  clinical  observations.  This  includes  appropriate  attire,  language,  behavior,  and   attitudes.  You  are  expected  to  be  punctual  and  avoid  unnecessary  absences  (see  Attendance   Policy  below).       Teaching  Dispositions     Teaching  dispositions  are  an  integral  part  of  the  profession  and  important  to  the   development  of  professional  behaviors  and  collaboration  skills.  Concerns  will  be  identified   early  and  problems  will  be  resolved  as  soon  as  possible  during  this  course.  All  teacher   candidates  will  be  evaluated  on  the  following  disposition  indicators.  Those  candidates  who   have  engaged  in  behaviors  that  suggest  a  negative  disposition  will  be  reported.       Disposition  Indicators     • Collaboration  Issues:  The  ability  to  work  together,  especially  in  a  joint  intellectual   effort.   • Honesty/Integrity:  The  ability  to  demonstrate  truthfulness  to  oneself  and  to   others;  demonstrate  moral  excellence  and  trustworthiness.   • Respect:  The  ability  to  honor,  value,  and  demonstrate  consideration  and  regard  for   oneself  and  others.   • Reverence  for  Learning:  Respect  and  seriousness  of  intent  to  acquire  knowledge.   • Emotional  Maturity:  The  ability  to  adjust  one’s  emotional  state  to  suitable  level  of   intensity  in  order  to  remain  engaged  with  one’s  surroundings.   • Reflection:  The  ability  to  review,  analyze,  and  evaluate  the  success  of  past   decisions  in  an  effort  to  make  better  decisions  in  the  future.   • Flexibility:  The  willingness  to  accept  and  adapt  to  change.   • Responsibility:  The  ability  to  act  independently,  demonstrating  accountability,   reliability  and  sound  judgment.     When  a  student  has  a  record  in  the  CECP  office  of  three  dispositional  concerns  that  have  not   been  resolved  by  the  teacher  candidate’s  major  department,  the  student  will  have  a  No  for   meeting  this  disposition  assessment  and  will  not  be  admitted  to  Professional  Studies  and/or   Student  Teaching.  CECP  will  contact  the  major  department  to  verify  that  the  three   dispositional  concerns  have  not  been  resolved.     Required  Reading   It  is  expected  that  students  come  to  class  with  all  assigned  reading  completed.  The  reading   assignments  provide  a  background  for  class  discussion  and  activities.
