Field Experience 1

My first McGill field experience took place at James Lyng High School near my place in St. Henri. It was a memorable experience for many reasons, most so since it was my first exposure to education in poverty. I have learned a lot which I will explore in other posts; here I will share the McGill assignments for my professional Seminar.

Assignment Description
School Culture & Community A reflection on the culture and community of James Lyng from my perspective as an adult observer/student teacher.
Teacher Identity A discussion of my initial conceptions of my “teacher identity”.
Teaching Philosophy My first philosophy of teaching, which I will revise each Field Experience.
Competency Self-Evals My self-evaluation of my mastery of five of the twelve professional teaching competencies.
Action Plan My professional development action plan.
