QR Codes and Engineering Professions

May 15, 2014

Students love to research and are very inquisitive. When the students see these QR codes posted around the classroom, they use their cell phones to scan the codes and they are linked immediately to the website. These QR codes are a series of engineering professions. This is one way to integrate technology into the classroom.

My Teaching Philosophy
1.As I reflect on my teaching strategies and lessons, most of my students were 80 to 90% fully engaged. There will always be some goof-offs independent of how interesting or engaging an activity is viewed.

2. During my instructions, my instructional goals were met and evidence was the completion of a project. The students learned what was expected; for example learning how to solve problems and work in groups.

3.Sometimes during class time, instructional goals were changed to compensate for a piece of equipment not working properly or there was a break in class time due to assemblies, fire drills, and other alarms but 98% of the time the instructions did not alter.

4.If I had the opportunity to reteach this year again, to this same group of students, the only thing I would do differently would be to request smaller classes, and have the students work more in smaller groups.
Below is an evaluation rubric for assessing student work
Assessment Rubric                                      


May 14, 2014

This data is being used to track the students performance on a series of formative assessments .You can quickly notice that Demiah has 171 points to Perdue and Nelson 0 points on the doccumentation of these point system. The students on the upper third of the chart would be considered independent students and would be your high achievers and vice versa. Instruction would be changed to compensate for the difference.
