Teachers’ analysis of contextual variables underlies their reasoned judgments and decisions about which specific pedagogical skills and abilities to apply in order that students can achieve optimum learning. Selected variables are outlined below.
“Demonstrates an ability to make teaching and learning a continuous cycle of goal setting, strategic planning, implementation, observation, reflection and adjustment.”
I have met the criteria by doing the following:
- Monthly Journals
- Blogging reflections
- “Passion Project” – Student directed learning
- Backwards by Design Planning or Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
