My second goal is to encourage a love of learning in my classroom. This love of learning will in turn spark student interest and engagement. A classroom of students who enjoy learning is important because it will increase the classroom atmosphere. From my own experience as a student I know how important a love of learning is, and how important it is to instill this love at a young age as it leads to less drop out rates where the students then become a community of adults who are happy critical thinkers.
-Make sure to keep my own dislike of math out of student’s knowledge, but rather show them where subjects like math and English can collide, such as books that incorporate math in a fun way.
-Show my own love of learning by being passionate about what I teach.
-Ask field partner to reflect on if I am upholding these steps as I teach.
