No Teacher Left Behind
Here are my thoughts....
By: Dena M. Thomas Week 4 Discussion 1
We as a nation want our children to move forward... why would we let our children see us let teachers go?
Should all teachers across the country use certain practices? I think teachers across the country should be allowed a little bit of breathing room for creativity. Even if teachers are allowed five minutes a day with their students to just be effortless and mindless, for just a few minutes a day, this could give teachers a sense of control and not feeling controlled.
However, I do believe that learning to confidently communicate, speak, listen, read and write are all multifaceted processes that require much practice and a wide variety of growth. A combination of expected practices and creative practices should be a consolidation in the classroom.
There should be such standards for teachers of today. Technology literacy is more than understanding how to use computers. It is about using tools digitally and effectively. Growth and leadership matter just as much as technology too. It expands the natural curiosity and desire to learn. Nurturing the development of personal responsibility does not come easy or natural for many. However, it should be a standard when students are in the hands of teachers.
