WCCC Teacher Academy
Technology - By: Sarah Jordan
Learning about how to use technology to communicate is a big part of learning to teach since technology of all types is present in all schools. So far we have learned how to download apps, use our google drive, and open assignments in moodle. We can now share documents with each other and Miss Snider where we can edit and comment on our fellow students papers. Even if we aren’t together in the classroom we can still keep in touch and help one another on assignments and get other opinions. One of the coolest things about using google documents is that we can all type on one paper together, we can work on our newsletter at the same time on the same page so it’s all a group effort. As we begin our teaching careers this knowledge will be very useful and the more familiar we are with how to use it the more we can help our students do more. Throughout the year we will become faster and more advanced to keep up with our fast pace generation.

Standards - By: Amanda Mousa
In Teacher Academy we learn about the new standards that are changing all the time. We learn that the nation has changed to a common core in Math and English. The change to common core will allow teachers all over America to teach the same topics in Math and English.This allows every student to have the same learning opportunities. The common core is divided by grade Kindergarten to High School in Math and English. Once you get into the high school levels of Math it then divides into the different types of math you can take such as: Geometry, and Statistics. Ohio has also adopted new History and Science standards. They have also added a new requirement for third grade teachers; they must have a reading endorsement.
