How is Your Classroom a Community?
How Students Learn to be Members of a Community
Hello! My name is Amie Platt and I am a graduate student at DePaul University. As an aspiring elementary school teacher, I am interested in better understanding how students learn what it means to be a member of community and how teachers play a role in that learning. I am looking to interview teachers about how they understand their role in teaching students to be members of a community through curriculum, pedagogy, and personal teacher ideology. Interview questions will be related to how you organize your classroom, select educational materials, your teaching style, and your beliefs on schooling and education.
