The instructor believes writing clearly and effectively is essential. It is the responsibility of every educator to write well and use the necessary skills to provide students in his or her classroom with ways to develop their writing skills. Stating that premise the instructor will engage each learner in a variety of writing activities with the objective of developing written communication, reflective thinking and writing, and critical analysis.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
CORE ASSESSMENT (Students will be given CARS(rubric) with grading guidelines)
An objective of this course is for each student to begin developing in write the needed quality indicators/standards and/or performance indicators for their professional portfolio. The writing of the professional portfolio is a process that begins in EDU 105, Career Inquiry, and continues throughout the education courses. The portfolio is a graduation and certification requirement. It will be imperative that you have your materials organized, that you participate in class discussions of the indicators, and you have and turn in the quality indicators/standards on the due dates. Grades will be reduced by 10% if not turned in on the due date and will not be accepted one week after due date. Resource Notebook
This is an organizational activity arranging materials collected (i.e. writing activities, reflective writings, error/revision chart, in class writings, handouts, etc.). This is to be submitted on the due date. Its organization will be individual preference, but easily understood and deemed functional by the instructor. Reflections/Activities for Textbooks
In addition, any student who misses three classes, regardless of whether or not the absence is excused, will be administratively withdrawn.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
As future teachers, the students in the environment should practice the dispositions that are listed in the School for Education's Conceptual Frameworks -- Knowledge, Skills, Dispositions. In short each member of the class should be polite, focused, and a positive participant in the classroom. Everyone should be willing to share ideas and listen to others respectfully.
As computers and technology have made writing and revising easier and more productive, they have also created unique problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drives crash. Be sure to save your work for backup purposes. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines. The core assessment, a children's book, will be sent for publication on a predetermined dates. Since many students want to use the computer for the book, it is essential that students plan ahead and do test runs prior to the actual due date ensuring that the book is completed as desired. The company publishes on a certain date and all books must be to the company at the same time to meet the deadline for publication. Using a computer is not a requirement for completition of the book.
