Positivity

I want to always be the best version of myself in the classroom. That means not bringing in any outside problems to my classroom, and making sure that I enter it in a positive way each day so my students feel good when they walk into their class each morning.

Examples in the classroom

In the classroom, the teacher always tries to reinforce positive behaviors in the classroom, rather that be from the students or herself. She has a chart where either the class gets a "dot" or the teacher gets a "dot" when they are doing something they are supposed to be doing.

I want my classroom to have a very calming feel right when you walk in, and to have my students know right away that they can come to me with anything that they need
Self Reflective
Just as teachers self reflect, students should also be self reflecting so they can improve upon areas that they are having difficulty with, and can ask for help when they need it.
Want the students to also be able to build onto their areas of growth.
Recognize "Busywork"
- Get rid of things you don't need in the classroom that are not working
Examples in the classroom
Teacher:
- helps her identify strengths and weaknesses in the lesson plan

-Asks the class what they would want to do/see in the classroom
Students:
- Have workbooks to jot stuff down in

- Write goals
Evidence from Education 290
Follow the 1 in 4 rule
- Give specific feedback on only 1 in every 4 assignments the student does
-Let the student self assess their own work
-Online documents make responding easier
-Ask students to show them their "best work" and see what they present to you
Family
I believe that families are one of the most important parts of a student's learning and success that they have in the classroom. When parents tend to get involved in their child's education, it helps them with a variety of things such as test scores, positive attitude towards homework and tests, better attendance records, etc…
Evidence from Education 290
-Families who feel comfortable to be involved can advocate for their childrens needs
-You need to find the best communication that works for each family to give them updates on their child in your classroom
Examples from classroom
- My cooperating teacher has a Facebook group with the parents or her students
-She posts updates, pictures, information, and just what is going on in the classroom
- I think that really helps build a relationship with the family as well as the student
Relationships
It is important to have a healthy positive relationship with all of your students at the beginning of the year. Not only is it important to have relationships with your students but also with their parents, your coworkers and the community.
