Best Strategies and Resources

June 17, 2011

By now, you have been interning for three months. How would you finish this sentence? The best strategies and resources I currently use in my classroom … Reflect on the implications of your response. (adapted from York-Barr et al., p. 95)

The best strategies and resources I currently use in my classroom are my students, their families, my Professional Learning Community (PLC), and the state and district learning goals.  All of these resources guide my teaching practices.  For example, my lessons are crafted based on my students and their academic needs.  My lessons and teaching practices are also developed with feedback from the students, their parents, and my PLC.  By incorporating state and district learning standards, I ensure that my students are being taught what is required of me to teach as well as what they should be learning.  The best strategies and resources do not come for a textbook or curriculum guide.  Best strategies are based upon the current learning community and what works for them.  The resources I have found to be the most valuable are the learners within my community, their families, my PLC, and myself.
