Please note when completing these entries I am an 8th Grade Math teacher… I reside in Georgia, USA so the information can be found online.

Journal 1–Standard 1: Learner Development
• Performances: Building relationships with students and getting to know them well is important. What strategies, activities, or inventories do you use to learn about and know each learner’s individual strengths, interests, and needs? What have you learned about your students that will affect your instruction?

Journal 2 – Standard 2: Learner Differences
• Critical Dispositions: What instrument(s) have you used to determine the interests and learning styles of your students? Describe an activity you planned when students’ interests and learning styles were incorporated deliberately. Did you refer to a recent student ballgame…or a popular TV show or sports hero? What community assets support your students’ instructional and non-instructional development—churches, Boys/Girls Club, local college or university summer programs, local museums and festivals? How do these community assets support learning in your classroom? Are there general interests shared by their peers (age group)?

Journal 3 – Standard 3: Learning Environments
• Critical Dispositions: Creating a classroom climate where all students feel valued is important. Explain the strategies you use to model and maintain equity and respectful relationships. How do you handle incorrect responses? How do you redirect students who are off task? What do you teach your students about listening skills? About responding skills? Consider a sign in a classroom: NO HUNTING ALLOWED…NO CHEAP SHOTS. What would students say the message is?

Journal 4 – Standard 4: Content Knowledge
• Critical Dispositions: In the effort to keep up with new ideas and understandings in your content area, it is important to remain current by reading professional literature, attending conferences, and accessing system resources. Describe the professional learning you have completed recently. What new information did you learn? How have you used that information or skill to adjust your lessons or “facts” in your content area?

Journal 5 – Standard 5: Application of Content
• Essential Knowledge: Standard 5 speaks to student use of “digital and interactive technologies” to “achieve specific learning goals.” Name the technologies you use most often and share your rationale for using them. Identify a new use of technology you intend to incorporate into future lessons. How will use of this technology improve the learning experience for students?

Journal 6 – Standard 6: Assessment
• Critical Dispositions: Student self-assessment and goal setting are important contributors to student achievement. Describe the steps you take to train your students to self-assess. What do they need to know before they can assume responsibility for their own progress? List these needs and explain their importance.

Journal 7 – Standard 7: Planning for Instruction
• Critical Dispositions: What is your own learning style? How does it influence your planning? Using your knowledge of student learning styles and Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences, take a recent standard you taught and describe 3 cooperative learning activities you would use to maximize student learning. Discuss the activities and explain how each correlates with one or more specific learning styles or multiple intelligences.
Please Note: I am a kinesthetic and Auditory Learner

Journal 8 – Standard 8: Instructional Strategies
• Critical Dispositions: Do your instructional strategies take into consideration the “varied languages and communication skills” of your students? Communication takes many forms: “listening, speaking, reading, writing, physical [performance], and digital” connections. Identify the communication form you depend on most often for instruction. Write about the effect your communication style has on student engagement and learning. Choose 2 other communication forms from the list which you can add to provide variety. Which ones will more likely engage students? Why?

Journal 9 – Standard 9: Professional Learning & Ethical Practice
• Critical Dispositions: A teacher’s own personal awareness of cultural diversity should be consistently monitored. What resources (colleagues, professional learning opportunities, professional reading, instructional materials) do you depend on to ensure that you incorporate diverse perceptions and students’ life experiences and interests into your teaching? Explain.

Journal 10 – Standard 10: Leadership & Collaboration
• Critical Dispositions: Effective teachers understand that students’ families should be aware of learning goals and actively participate in setting and meeting those goals. Explain how you maintain communication with parents. How do you encourage family members to express their opinions and to support school efforts to identify and address students’ needs?
