This is one of my assignments for the week. Try not to laugh.
*Describe your philosophy and values for creating and maintaining a positive learning environment; consider the role of the teacher, students, school administrators, district policies, ethical, and professional behaviors.
*Create rules, procedures, routines, and consequences for establishing and maintaining a positive learning enviornemnt
I also have to get this evaluated by 2 professional educators and the reflect about the whole thing.
I'm going to need a bucket to throw up in by the time I'm done. This is the most ridiculous assignment I have EVER done in college. Seriously, and one class at Sac State required me to draw my interpretation of Chinese mythology. This is even sillier than that assignment.
Why? For many reasons, one of which is that schools set the vast majority of classroom rules - a teacher gets a certain amount of flexibility - but if a school has a certain classroom policy then I'm bound to abide by it. So why in the name of all that is holy am I wasting my time creating this crap on my own???
And my philosophy on classroom management? Sweet Jebus I just threw up in my mouth a little. Ridiculous I say. Utterly.
I feel like complaining about the idiocy of this assignment, but I have no idea to whom. Oh well. I will invent a bunch of BS and pass it off as a thoughtful assignment. I'm ready to be DONE with my classes. DONE.
I have Penelope-related posts, those will come soon I promise.
