Meg Roe Journal Assignment April 5, 2012 PRINCIPLE 1: Knowledge of Subject Matter: The teacher understands the central

concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the discipline taught and creates learning experiences that make these aspects of subject matter meaningful for students. I intend on using an essay I wrote my Education PE class which talks about brain based learning and multiple intellegences. I also plan on creating a document on classroom behavior. Using these two items will explain how I believe education should be taught to students using a variety of information and will give the students the tools to learn through experience. It will also show what will be acceptable behavior in my classroom and what will not be tolerated. PRINCIPLE 2: Knowledge of Human Development and Learning: The teacher understands how students learn and develop, and provides opportunities that support their intellectual, social, and personal development. This principle will be covered under principle 1’s PE Essay. I will also include my SIB which delves further into development. PRINCIPLE 3: Adapting Instruction for Individual Needs: The teacher understands how students differ in their approaches to learning and creates instructional opportunities that are adapted to students with diverse needs. I intend on using my essay from the developmental differences class as well as my philosophy of teaching (at least excerpts from both). PRINCIPLE 4: Multiple Instructional Strategies: The teacher understands and uses a variety of instructional strategies to develop students’ critical thinking, problem solving, and performance skills.

This principle will be discussed within principle 1 & 2. PRINCIPLE 5: Classroom Motivation and Management Skills: The teacher understands individual and group motivation and behavior and creates a learning environment that encourages positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation. I would like to use a PowerPoint from my EDU 204 class to give examples of dealing with students who are disadvantaged. I will also probably use a Poverty and Motivation paper I wrote for PE. PRINCIPLE 6: Communication Skills: The teacher uses a variety of communication techniques to foster inquiry, collaboration, and supportive interaction in and beyond the classroom. This will be covered in 1, 2, & 5. PRINCIPLE 7: Instructional Planning Skills: The teacher plans and prepares instruction based on knowledge of subject matter, students, the community, and curriculum goals. I will use my lesson plan from my PE class to show that I know how to lesson plan. PRINCIPLE 8: Assessment of Student Learning: The teacher understands, uses, and interprets formal and informal assessment strategies to evaluate and advance student performance and to determine program effectiveness. I will use a standards grid I put together for EDU 215 as well as a reflections paper from PE. PRINCIPLE 9: Professional Commitment and Responsibility: The teacher is a reflective practitioner who demonstrates a commitment to professional standards and is continuously engaged in purposeful mastery of the art and science of teaching.

I will use my philosophy of teaching paper from my PE class as well as my autobiography paper from EDU 201.
