Sub-Standards of Standard 3

Explanation of when/where/how I met the appropriate level of mastery

a. Design and implement instruction aligned with the MCF, Universal Education Vision and Principles, and the Michigan Educational Technology Standards.

I was able to complete this during my unit plans in my pedagogy classes such as the pedagogy of social studies.

b. Create learning environments that promote critical and higher order thinking skills, foster the acquisition of deep knowledge, and provide connections beyond the classrooms to promote substantive conversations and clear structured writing among teacher and learners regarding subject matter acquisition.

During my maymester unit, Students had to make connections from the industrial revolution to environmental problems today. Students had to do research and make projects and papers on the environmental issue and how it related to history.


c. Help each student to learn how to safely and responsibly access and use resources to become a discerning independent learner and problem solver (e.g., print materials, information technology, assistive technology).

During my government class we covered the definition of plagiarism and how to make a works cited sheet.

d. Design instruction so that students are engaged in actively integrating and transferring knowledge across the curriculum.

In world history we have done a lot of work that shows the importance of art in religion and in history.

e. Engage students in activities that demonstrate the purpose and function of subject matter to make connections to the world beyond the classroom and enhance the relationship and relevance to a global society.

During maymester I had guest speakers from the community come in to talk to the students about the connection between history and the environment in the student’s home town.

g. Embrace teaching through appropriate and creative activities utilizing instructional techniques that are supported by current research.
