Education is a valuable commodity in life. There are many who wish they had
it, and many are thankful for it. The inspiration and self-determination of an
individual is a great driving force in where they will end up in life.
Education is reflected in everything that people do, from driving to standing
up, they are motivated to do something. A teacher is not just someone who holds
a certification, but rather an individual who leads by example. A biblical
perspective of this is Jesus Christ. He was not educated fully when he spoke in
the synagogue, yet he still had many followers. A gifted teacher is one that
can challenge a student while engaging the student with motivation for success.
Success of any student is great, but yet success in itself cannot be
defined for any individual other than themselves. Students’ values, morals, and
worldview guide their expectations of themselves, which all have the underlying
support of motivation. My goal as a teacher is to help the students learn what
drives them to be successful, what they define as success, and how success can
be achieved. For some students, it is monetary gains, for others grades, and many
other categories of success, however it may be the students themselves will
define their own future. I believe an effective teacher is one who can
distinguish how each student derives success, and helps motivate them to
achieve that goal.
All students in live have the ability to learn, yet many of them choose
simply to not do it. It could be that they do not see where it is benefiting
them or the know how to accomplish it. In the end, students do not owe the
teachers anything but for them to try for their goals. Everyone learns best in
different ways, but the ultimate decision is up to them.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
For this course, the assessment is based on a final exam. There will be 4 questions in each of the 8 categories, i.e. Synthesis, Analysis,… etc. Thus, there will be 32 questions total in the final exam. Furthermore, all 4 questions for each category should cover all 4 learning outcomes.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
You will be able to track your average
exactly throughout the course. The grading scale is as follows: A = 90%-100%; B
= 80%-90%; C = 70%-80%; D = 60%-70%; F = 0-60%. You will know in advance the
standards for each assignment. My goal is to give you prompt, clear, and useful
feedback to help you to succeed in this class. Each student is responsible for:
4 @ 50
Mid Term Exam
1 @ 300
Course Grading Scale:
This subsection should list the
grading scale and weighting for all of the graded work during a course. The
grading scale must use the following scale below, and point totals for each
letter grade must be included (see example below).
