Each year a group of teachers put together a teaching portfolio that centers around an inquiry question tied to a desired area of professional growth. The creation of the portfolio is for the purpose of professional development and an opportunity to reflect on my practice. The pages of this portfolio are as follows:
- Inquiry Question:
- Year’s Best Unit and Reflection
- Best Lesson:
- Goal for the 2011-2012 School Year
- Reflection of School Year
- What I Wish I Had Known at the Beginning of the Year
- Example student work.
2011 Inquiry Question: What factors contribute to a student’s perception of success on a project?
2012 Inquiry Question: Does using different types of media (internet, film, music) during the introductory part of a project promote deeper thinking on the essential question of the unit?
