3. Learning Environments. The teacher works with others to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning, and that encourage positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
Entry from 09/20/21
Mrs. Erickson every Monday starts the class by asking the students to share about their weekend. Questions like, "did anybody do?..." The children share among themselves and this creates a routine of social interaction and safe environment.
Entry from 10/27/21 [The students had a ] Morning meeting group conversation about how to keep safe.
These examples represent standard number 3 because the teacher creates this environment of collaboration by initiating a conversation, and the children are confortably sharing among themselves in the morning meeting.

Best Practice: Collaboration is a best practice because the teacher allows the students to bring their own ideas into the conversation. Sometimes children learn best from their peers.
9. Professional Learning and Ethical Practice. The teacher engages in ongoing professional learning. The teacher uses evidence to continuously evaluate the teacher’s practice, including the effects of the teacher’s choices and actions on pupils, their families, other educators, and the community. The teacher adapts the teacher’s practice to meet the needs of each pupil.
Every day, Ms. Erickson would ask me to check the assignment notebooks to make sure that the parents had signed it.
Entry from 10/18/21 Assignment notebooks, Math HW turn in.
12/6/21 new collector collects assignment notebooks.
This is a way to reach out to the children's families on a daily basis to see the needs of the child and to be aware of their homework. This is a way to commnicate with the parents.

Best Practice: Commucication with families in some form or fashion is crucial to be able to help the child according to his or her needs.
3. Learning Environments. The teacher works with others to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning, and that encourage positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
Hammond states, "Create a short, intense, and semistructured talk activity that allows students to engage in culturally congruent ways- overlappingg speaking, all at once or pair share" (Hammond, 129).
Entry from 10/13/21 Two kids were having a conflict and I helped them solve it with steps. I feel… You say… sorry… thumbs up.
Best Practice: The teacher asked me to tape those steps on the floor at the begining of the year. Solving conflicts by collaboration and dialogue is a great best practice as it teaches children to use their words to reconcile their relations with each other.
Helping the students to talk to each other about a topic specially about culture, is necessary to help them be engaged. This fosters an atmosphere of safety and inclusion.
9. Professional Learning and Ethical Practice. The teacher engages in ongoing professional learning. The teacher uses evidence to continuously evaluate the teacher’s practice, including the effects of the teacher’s choices and actions on pupils, their families, other educators, and the community. The teacher adapts the teacher’s practice to meet the needs of each pupil.
Hammond states, "Dependent learners cannot become independent learners by sheer willpower. It is not a matter of grit or mindset. Grit and mindset are necessary but not sufficient by themselves. We have to help dependent students develop new cognitive skills and habits of mind that will actually increase their brainpower" (Hammond, 15).
The statement above goes along with standard 9 because it addresses the needs of each child to become independent learners. The teacher helps the student and adapts to his or her needs.
Entry from 09/27/21. [Mrs. Erickson said], Reading, “When you finish reading a book re-read and you put one book away before you put the other back.”
Mrs. Erickson would teach in different ways how to be independent learners. It is important for her that they learn how to learn to do things by themselves and do what they were supposed to.
Best Practice: Teaching the students how to be independent learners is a best practice that is important because they have to know that the teacher believes they can do it.
3. Learning Environments. The teacher works with others to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning, and that encourage positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
The activity we did during class of World Cafe was really helpful to be able to generate different ideas and points of view regarding multicultural education and culturally responsive teaching.
This connects to standard 3 because this activity involves a lot of social interaction, active engagement and self- motivation, as well as motivating each other.
At the field placement, a few of the students were from different ethnicities. It was a really nice group to work with. Everyone's needs were met. The teacher pronounced the name of the students correctly. When conflicts arised we both tried our best to listen and help them solve their problems.
Culturally responsive teaching is a best practice because it adresses the needs of all children as a whole and individually.
