C. Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment: Interns will develop their abilities for planning, presenting, and assessing lessons that meet the needs of all students.
D. Social Justice and Community: Interns will develop an interest in and commitment to addressing issues of social justice as they relate to education and to the larger community.
Professional Growth Plan Goals:
I will try my best to encourage students whenever I can and remain positive through every remaining moment of this field placement, in order to develop an optimistic approach to teaching for my future. My attitude directly impacts the attitude of the students and I want to be cautious and strategic in the words and emotions I use. I will ask the students for feedback as much as I can, in order to listen to their views and learn from their individual experiences and strengths. I will consider every student individually when planning my last few field placement lessons and will try to plan in such a way that allows successful learning for every student. I will start to compile a digital list of credible resources to stay informed on social justice and the field of education. This list will help me with my last goal of gaining new information each day.
