  6. 6. <ul><li>To show how I have prepared to fulfill the position’s responsibilities </li></ul><ul><li>EXPERIENCE: </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching Internship, Elmdale Elementary School, Springdale , Ar. </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching Internship, Hellstern Middle School, Springdale, Ar. </li></ul><ul><li>Practice Teaching through University of Arkansas kinesiology courses. </li></ul><ul><li>Assisted with Conway Senior High School football in years past. </li></ul><ul><li>To show my ambition and leadership capabilities </li></ul><ul><li>LEADERSHIP ACTIVITIES: </li></ul><ul><li>Attended Sigma Chi Balfour leadership Conference </li></ul><ul><li>Acted as assistant fall rush chairmen for two terms (2006, 2007) </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>A1: Becoming familiar with students’ background knowledge and experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Elmdale Elementary School, a large portion of the students did not speak fluent English. Knowing this helped me to plan effective lessons (a lot of demonstrations). </li></ul><ul><li>A2: Articulating clear learning goals that are appropriate for the students. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. When teaching a lesson on over hand throwing, I had the 5 th grade students throw to a partner at a short distance, and explained to them that our goal for the day was to practice the correct throwing form. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>A3: Demonstrating an understanding of the connections between the content that was learned previously, the current content, and the content that remains to be learned in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Hellstern, I have taught a lesson on dribbling a basketball, another on shooting a basketball, and plan to teach a lesson focusing on lay ups to tie all of skills together. </li></ul><ul><li>A4: Creating or selecting teaching methods, learning activities, and instructional materials or other resources that are appropriate for the students and that are aligned with the goals of the lesson. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Elmdale, during the over hand throwing with a football lesson, I had the smaller students throw with smaller footballs. I also had them throw at appropriate distances depending on their individual arm strength. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>A5: Creating or selecting evaluation strategies that are appropriate for the students and that are aligned with the goals of the lesson. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Elmdale, during my lesson on over hand throwing, I evaluated the students on their form, not how far they could throw the ball, because the focus of the lesson was their throwing form. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>B1: Creating an environment that promotes fairness. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Hellstern, I gave all of my students their own basketball during a dribbling lesson, and allowed each of them equal time to participate in the activities. </li></ul><ul><li>B2: Establishing and maintaining rapport with the students. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Hellstern, I have “social time” duty during lunch time. This allows me to talk with the students and get to know them better. </li></ul><ul><li>B3: Communicating challenging learning expectations to each student. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Elmdale, I during the over hand throwing lesson, I asked the students to take a step back each time they completed a pass to their partner, and continue challenging themselves. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>B4: Establishing consistent standards of classroom behavior. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At Hellstern, I have made it clear to the students that If they talk while I am giving instructions, they will have to sign the behavior book, regardless of who they might be. </li></ul><ul><li>B5: Making the physical environment as safe and conducive to learning as possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. Each day during off-season football at Hellstern, I make sure that each of the students has a spotter when lifting weights. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>C1: Making learning goals and instructional procedures clear to students. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. When one of my classes at Elmdale played “scooter football” I explained to them that the day’s lesson focus was on teamwork, and demonstrated how they were to work together and score during the game, without breaking the rules. </li></ul><ul><li>C2: Making content comprehensible to students. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. To avoid the language barrier with some of the Hispanic students at Elmdale, I demonstrated each of the activities. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>C3: Encouraging students to extend their thinking. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. I always try to allow a few minutes at the end of each lesson to ask open ended questions about the lesson. After a weight lifting lesson this week, I asked the students which muscles each exercise worked the most. </li></ul><ul><li>C4: Monitoring students’ understanding of content through a variety of means, providing feedback to students to assist learning, and adjusting learning activities as the situation demands. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. During a galloping lesson at Elmdale, I had the students perform the skill at different speeds, in different directions, and with different “lead legs.” This helped me to see if they really understood the correct form if the skill. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>C5: Using instructional time efficiently. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. With the elementary school children, I knew that more instructional time was needed for each lesson, but by giving demonstrations I was able to minimize this time. The less instructional time is needed for the middle school students, so I don’t waste class time by talking too much about the activities. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>D1: Reflecting on the extent to which the learning goals were met. </li></ul><ul><li>This occurs after a lesson has been taught. If the goals were not met, come up with different teaching strategies. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. After I taught an ineffective lesson on hiking a football to a 1 st grade class, I came up with more effective cues for the next time that I taught the lesson. </li></ul><ul><li>D2: Demonstrating a sense of efficacy. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. I have tried to carry out my duties during this internship to the best of my ability on a daily basis, and I strive to help the students in any way possible. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>D3: Building professional relationships with colleagues to share teaching insights and to coordinate learning activities for students. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. At both placements during my internship, my mentor teachers have provided me with helpful knowledge and strategies for teaching the lessons. </li></ul><ul><li>D4: Communicating with parents or guardians about a students learning. </li></ul><ul><li>I have not had much experience with this, but I have seen my mentor teachers speak with parents/guardians, and solve the issue at hand quickly and respectfully. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>I have learned many new teaching techniques regarding class management. </li></ul><ul><li>I have learned new strategies which will help my lessons to be more effective. </li></ul><ul><li>I have learned about managing instructional time with students of different ages. </li></ul><ul><li>I have learned that young students will not be enthusiastic unless you are enthusiastic yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>I have learned that I still have a lot to learn. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Mentor Teacher: Coach Josh Hiklin </li></ul><ul><li>Great P.E. Teacher </li></ul><ul><li>Tons of knowledge and Strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Helped me to develop my own </li></ul><ul><li>teaching style </li></ul><ul><li>Loves fantasy football </li></ul><ul><li>“ WE DARE TO TRY” </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Mentor Teacher: Coach Brett Unger </li></ul><ul><li>Great P.E. Teacher </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s me be in charge of classes </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s me learn through experience </li></ul><ul><li>Cardinals Fan! </li></ul>
