UBC B.Ed 2020-2021—EDUC 450, 452, 453
This webpage is where I will record and share my experiences as a student teacher in practicum. I’ll also share as I wonder, discover, develop, implement, assess, and reflect on an inquiry into my teaching practice as a student teacher.
I’ve always been a big fan of a view!
This is the view from my practicum classroom where you can see the Stal̕əw̓ river in walking distance. There are three big fields surrounding the school, one of which is a park. The school itself is large and very modern with a pacific westcoast design.SEE GOOGLE STREET VIEW
What is Inquiry, anyway?
Teacher inquiry is a process that engages teachers in their own learning with the ultimate goals of becoming a better educator and finding meaning in their profession. The process begins with wonderings about: new and interesting teaching practices; issues in current teaching practice or goals for teaching practice. After researching and developing an inquiry question, the teacher attempts to implement or transform their classroom teaching practice using a systematic approach that includes measuring success . The inquiry process concludes with reflection on how the inquiry went and perhaps continues a spiral of learning that evolves into another inquiry.
