  • Session Description
    I’ve created and use a survey about students' perception of mathematics. Questions include ranking of statements like “I will use mathematics in my future career” as well as open ended questions like “I want my teacher to know…” Along with the survey, I will share how giving it at the beginning and end of the year guides my instruction as well as how it helps me reflect on my students’ growth. I even use this as a data collection tool for my end of year evaluation.

    This poster will share the benefits and process of creating intentional relationships between community and students. Some of these relationships are more traditional, like mentoring. Others include service learning, virtual pen pals and professional interest buddies. These opportunities are provided through in classroom experiences such as genius hour, service learning, inquiry based learning activities or passion projects. The goal is to increase student engagement and achievement within the classroom, and to boost social and emotional health. With intentional, more individualized relationships, students are able to experience the real world while doing curriculum. Products used in conjunction with this project are community and student interest survey. A live binder is used to store community information and connect community members to students. Finally, a community leadership conference concludes the year. Here, students and members reflect and share their experiences. This can be done on a school level or on a larger scale.

    Teacher evaluation is often handled differently at the university than at the district. Striving to prepare our PSTs in ways that align with AMLE teacher preparation standards along with what is expected of them in the field, this session highlights the use of a district-wide teacher evaluation tool in a clinically rich program. Lessons learned, including the ways AMLE standards align with this tool, will be shared along with perspectives from a supervisor, collaborating teacher, and PST.
