Post No. 5 for The Teaching Project

Hi All! Joseph is back today with his final post for The Teaching Project!

The A5 Grey Malden which I am using for my teaching binder is an indispensable tool which aids me during my instructional day.  It enables me to have everything I need for managing my classroom within easy reach since my A5 Grey Malden is always with me.  My teaching binder is named Dr. Bryant and you get a star for the day if you understand the reference.

My fifth blog post is dedicated to the resources that I have created for Dr. Bryant.  The first resource that I would like to share with you is my weekly instructional outline.  It gives me quick access to what lessons I am teaching on what days.  Since I have six instructional periods each day, I rely heavily upon this resource.  I create a new instructional outline each Friday for the following week and keep these within my teaching binder through the end of each term.

The next resource I have created is an instructional schedule for the first bi-term of the spring semester.  It serves as a brief and concise overview of the classes I am teaching in a standard grid format.

The spring semester is divided into the following three instructional sessions:  First Bi-term, Second Bi-Term, and Summer Term.  In my teaching binder I keep a list for each instructional session showing when college is in session and when instruction is dismissed.

To manage my student’s attendance, I have created resources for each of the three instructional cycles in the semester.  This allows me quick access to days of attendance and absence.

Finally, I have created a form which enables me to track the educational process of my learner.  It tells me about their pre-testing, hours of attendance, post-testing, and type of improvement made.

This empowers me to give special attention to learners in the next instructional cycle who are not progressing at a desired pace.

  1. Is that Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis? If so, I am more than impressed. I’m impressed anyway, but that would definitely be a “more than”.
