PROFESSIONAL BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
In my teaching practice, I have demonstrated the ability to apply a current and comprehensive repertoire of effective planning, instruction, and assessment practices to meet the learning needs of every student. This has been achieved by including the Alberta Program of Studies outcomes and goals that are being addressed in all of my lesson plans (as shown in the two lesson plans linked below).
I have had the experience of creating both short-term lesson plans and long-term unit plans. I have implemented a variety of technology usage in my previous lesson plans. I use instructional strategies to engage students in meaningful learning activities such as using manipulatives in math (money, blocks, cards, clothesline), teaching with multiple entry points (text, video, discussion), and utilizing nonstressful student response methods (personal whiteboards, presentations in a circle, choices for projects final products). I applied student assessment and evaluation practices that fit with the program of study, generated evidence of student learning and gave feedback by collecting through exit slips, in-class evidence, Google Classroom (quizzes, projects, and classwork), and by marking using a four-point scale, rubrics and giving students personal comments for improvement.
