This course explores theory, research and practice of teaching at the middle school level. Students specifically explore the ideas of adapting instruction to meet the needs of individual students including those with specific and special needs.
I had the wonderful experience of being placed in Lesher Middle School, an International Baccalaureate school located east of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Here you will find links to my Ignite Toolbox which is a collection of strategies and tools gathered during my time at Lesher. Each of these strategies is applied to meet a specific standard of the 8 teaching, learning and content standards universal to educators in Colorado as outlined by the Colorado Department of Education. Additionally you will find my teacher work sample outlining my teaching experience, lesson plans, and summation of learning during my semester at Lesher.
