Digital Artifcat, Educ 430

  1. 1. Stephanie’s learning journey..
  2. 2. Introduction My name is Stephanie Williams, I am a student at the University of Calgary in the Bachelor of Education program, specializing in English & secondary education. This PowerPoint will highlight many of the new techniques and ideas I have learned through my education courses at the University so far. As I move from a learner to a teacher, my hope is that I am able to employ what I have learned in my own classroom. Please enjoy my journey from a learner to a teacher!
  3. 3. Culture & Climate What is the differences between culture and climate? Culture: “Some important elements of culture… are the norms, values, beliefs, traditions, rituals, ceremonies, and myths translated by a particular group of people. Thus, the values expressed in lesson plans and classroom teachings, the way the principle runs staff meetings, and the decorations displayed in hallways are all integral parts of school culture.” – (Stolp S., Smith S. C., 1995) Climate: “When discussing climate, the focus is on the impressions, feelings, and expectations held by members of the school organization. These perceptions are aroused by the organization’s structure, setting, as well as by the social interactions among those who work and learn there” – (Stolp S., Smith S. C., 1995)
  4. 4. Culture & Climate  “The mosT imporTanT foundaTional elemenT is The culTure of The school.” ~ Allan A. Glatthorn (1992)
  5. 5. Diversity in learning What are the many types of diversity found in a classroom?  Culture: “Different cultural groups have different ways of making meaning.” (Jerome C. Harste) Racial origins: “Thirty years from now (by 2035) demographers project that students of color will constitute a majority of the student population…” (Hodgkinson, 2001, U.S Bureau of the Census, 2000) Language “[Teachers] must know how to provide clear, organized directions – using multiple modes of commutation so that students who process information differently will be able to understand them and well-scaffolded tasks that provide many entry points into the material so that students can learn.” (J. Banks et al., 2005) Learning challenges “To instruct special needs students effectively, teachers need to understand the nature of various disabilities, ranging from mild to moderate learning disabilities… to other concerns such as developmental delays, mental retardation, hearing impairments, visual impairments, autism, emotional and behavioral disorders, speech and language impairments, physical impairments (mobility), emotional disturbances, and attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).” (J. Banks et al., 2005)
  6. 6. Diversity in Learning
  7. 7. Forms of Literacy
  8. 8. Poverty and Learning  Poverty: the degree to which an individual does without resources (Ruby Payne, A Framework for Understanding Poverty) What forms of poverty are found within the classroom?  Financial,  Emotional,  Mental  Spiritual  Physical  Support systems,  Relationships/role models,  Knowledge of hidden rules
  9. 9. Universal Design for Learning “Each child, everyday, no exception”- Deborah Lewis, UDL (July 26, 2012)  “Giving students a chance to choose how they can best express what they know” – Gavin Schumm, UDL, July 26, 2012
  10. 10. Universal Design for Learning Personal reflection: I believe in the Universal design for learning because it gives every child the exact same opportunity to succeed, both academically and socially. If we were to remove a child from the classroom, whether it be because that student is coded gifted, or because he/she has a learning disability, we rob them of the chance to be “normal.” In addition, we also take away their chances of identifying themselves, because we have already labeled them. In my classroom during my own practice, I hope that I am given the opportunity to employ inclusion and give every student a chance.
  11. 11. Universal Design for Learning INCLUSIVE EDUCATION
  12. 12. Scaffolding  Scaffolding is the “support for learning and problem solving; the support could be clues, reminders, encouragement, breaking the problem down into steps, providing an example, or anything else that allows the student to grow in independence as a learner” - (Woolfolk A. E., Winne P. H., Perry N. E., 2011)
  13. 13. Zone of Proximal Development  Brought into light by Vygotsky, the zone of proximal development refers to the “phase at which a child can master a task if given appropriate help and support” - (Woolfolk A. E., Winne P. H., Perry N. E., 2011) Scaffolding can be thought of as the assistance to a child to help them remain in the zone of proximal development
  14. 14. How do we make learning relevant?  Students learn what they care about, from people they care about and who, they know, care about them.” ~ Barbara Harrell Carson
