"Hi Jordan! You're post is great. I really enjoyed the tips for new teachers too. I would also include, (even though is was mentioned a bit in the last few chapters) that how important it is for us as teachers to take an advantage of technology.…"

Chapter 10 Discussion

Like many others, my favorite aspect of this chapter was the tips for new teachers. These tips spanned aspects from journaling, classroom behavior, creative experiences, and the school environment itself. The text stressed that journaling was an important way to record first-year experiences. I  am sure that year will be quite hectic and it will be nice to have a concrete reminder of how far we have come down the road. In addition, it is important to remember that teaching is not about the…See More

"Jessica,  It is great to include paintings and letters from students in a teaching portfolio. That exact tip is actually one that my mentor teacher gave me, she said that student letters are the best recommendation a teacher can have and that…"

"Megan,  I also thought that chapter ten served as a "highlight reel" for the entire book, and the course so far. I think that the tips, especially the ones for new teachers, are one of the most valuable sections of the book. It is the…"

"Emily, You made a great point about new teachers having to consider the culture and environment of the school. I think that this is an important aspect of any job, but especially so for teaching. If your co-workers are supportive and there is an…"

"Good post, Jordan! I really like how you started your post with a brief summary and then defined cyberbullying. You're very right, it is becoming too common and accepted. The more young people that are given access to technology, the more…"

Chapter 9

I thought the most interesting aspect of this chapter was the section on classroom community. Classroom community is defined as "a community in which each participant is invested in the smooth operation of the whole and all participants have an interest in outcomes". I thought this was a very useful and beneficial way of looking at classroom management in a way that also involves the students. Setting up a classroom community is a way of involving all the students in setting the expectations…See More

The Search for Scholarships

The Search for Scholarships

     Like most other college students, I look for ways to minimize the amount of money I have to pay for my education. One of the ways I like to do this is by searching for the various scholarships that are offered, and when I had the opportunity to ask the University of South Florida advisors questions, I asked them about resources for scholarships. But, unfortunately they did not respond to my question, but I am sure that was…

Will Asynchronous Advising Every Truly Replace In-Person Advising?

While there are some benefits to online advising sessions, I do not believe that they will ever fully replace the personal help and attention available during in-person advising sessions. My experience with the University of South Florida online advisors unfortunately fell quite short of what I had hoped it would be. I hoped that it would be a valuable, informative, and helpful experience that would provide me with some guidance going forward with my degree. This led me to compare the…
