Support and Peer Coaching for Experienced Teachers
Lincolnview Elementary Web Sites
develop a resource booklet that would contain useful web sites
for all grade levels. The primary focus would be on science and
math. To make this a useful tool, the teachers would provide the
web site addresses along with a brief description of what the site
included. The resource booklet would be available for any
educator at Lincolnview.
Pencil or computer?
The teacher is now the coordinator of learning in this information age. The teacher coordinates what the student desires to learn with the technology available. To do their job efficiently, teachers must have the access to training and support in using and incorporating this ever-changing technology in the curriculum.
As a special education teacher, I received lesson ideas and activities geared to the needs of my students. I can use these to modify their curriculum as needed.
I have enjoyed working with this PEERS group. One of the valuable areas is the ability to work with other people in your profession, sharing ideas and working out problems together.
As our world continuously changes, the responsibilities of a teacher must be modified so our students will be well prepared for their future. Sites which could aid in the necessity of keeping abreast of the current professional research and findings of the academic world and which would clarify the new federal and state educational policies and laws, would be invaluable.
I found the searching to be a lengthy process. I tried several topics and means to search. Luckily, I found one site that was a collection of educational sites and spent a considerable amount of time looking at them.
In sharing information with my colleagues I have been able to search in many different directions and take paths that I might not have other wise have taken. Each of the participants of the group had a different goal in their search. From these many different starting points we were able to access the infinite warehouse of information that makes up the web.
Many sites have already done the work of linking to state standards by matching benchmarks and indicators for state proficiencies within the plans and activities… I would recommend the list of sites to other teachers. I think they would find this a great list of resources for their classes.
I would encourage school districts to view this type of activity (searching for sites and exploring the sites for usefulness in the classroom or as teaching aids) as inservice time during the school year.
