Standard 2: Learning Environment

April 24, 2011

I have included two artifacts here which show that I have satisfied Standard 2 – Learning Environment: Creates and maintains school-wide and classroom environments that are safe, stable, and empowering.

The first document is my final reflection from the course EDU 6655: Human Development and Principles of Learning, which I have included because it is a straight-forward analysis of the connection between human development and education. In this essay, I show that can describe and apply the theories of development to the world of education

and to the individual classroom teacher.

Reflection Essay

This second artifact is a case study in which I use Lawrence Kohlberg’s theory of moral development to analyze Greg, a fictitious eleven year-old middle school student. Through the lens of Kohlberg’s six stages of moral development I provide an analysis of the student, and show how he could be assisted and encouraged in the processes of education and moral development. Through this process I explain how individual classroom teachers can help students like Greg, and illuminate the processes necessary to help Greg advance through the stages of development.
