Standard 4: Pedagogy

April 24, 2011

The artifact attached below satisfies the requirements for Standard 4: Pedagogy, which is defined as the following: Engages students in learning experiences that are meaningful, stimulating, and empirically proven to promote intellectual growth.

The document, entitled “Direct Cooperation: Effectively Combining Direct Instruction and Cooperative Learning”, was written in an attempt to clarify my process of illuminating autonomy, academic achievement and community as important aspects of a students education. I explain this process in detail, though it essentially boils down to establishing and maintaining a balance of direct instruction and cooperative learning strategies, which a teacher can use to promote both academic achievement and student well-being. My conclusions are based on evidence gathered that proves the effectiveness of both direct instruction and cooperative learning in engaging student interest and increasing academic achievement.
