Effective Classroom Teachers in the 21st Century Student materials For this RWLO, students in an introduction to education community college level course will access an original document prepared by NBPTS that presents and discusses the five core propositions of an accomplished teacher. Students will listen to excerpts from the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory’s (NCREL), “Voices of Teachers Talking about Teaching,” and use the key behaviors to identify the corresponding NBPTS core proposition. Students will end this lesson by posting one example on the class on-line bulletin board from their field work that demonstrates one of the five core propositions and one response to a peer’s posting focusing on whether they agree or disagree with the peer’s decision as to which core proposition(s) applies to the field work example.

Developmentally Appropriate Technology Integration into Standards-based Early Childhood Lessons (.doc) See Word document Pre-service teachers will evaluate a preschool or kindergarten lesson that utilizes technology, accessing the plan and two videorecordings online, a teacher interview and the children participating in the lesson. They will compare the children’s work to children’s work and lesson plans presented on teacher websites and be able to email questions to the practitioners about their use of technology with children. Each student will then write an appropriate activity plan for young children (preK-grade 2) integrating the use of technology and using the format presented. The lessons will be posted to the course website and to one of the lesson-sharing sites. Linda Romero, Assistant Professor, MassBay Community College
SmartBrief- Current Issues in Education (.doc) See Word document Students read a variety of articles taken from various media sources to develop a presentation on a current theme in education. Marjorie Schiller, Professor, Central Arizona College
Philosophy of Education See Word document This RWLO is a supplemental activity that goes with developing a philosophy of education essay. First, the students will participate in class discussion and a jigsaw cooperative learning activity to determine the background information pertaining to philosophies. Next, the students will complete a telecollaborative RWLO where they are in contact with teachers from around the world. Then, the students will take their findings from the RWLO and information learned through discovery activities and develop their own philosophy of education.
