Repertoire of best teaching practice and can use these to instruct children in classroom

and to adults in the school setting. It views of learning teach as a lifelong process and

disposition and skills for working towards improving us our teaching as well as improving

schools. In practice teaching we also know how to develop our learning environment

where teaching and learning can take place in the most effective and productive manner.

Practice teaching is very important for us as a future teacher because it serves as our

guide to step forward for our vocation of what best scenario to enclose ourselves and this

training develops as to become effective and efficient teacher to the young generation.

Practice teaching is likewise important potentials that would guide us to discover the best

techniques that we can achieve. Through this experience we can disregard our weaknesses

and lead us to make a better world model as future professionals.

What is Practice teaching?

Practice teaching is of paramount importance in the vocational training of student

teachers. It is this immersion into the real world of school that prepares the student in

making the transition from trainee to professional. Practice teaching played an important

part in their development as teachers by providing a context wherein they could merge

theory and practice; find their own teaching and management styles as well as cope with

the demands of multi-tasking that being in a classroom demands. The paramount role of the

host teacher and the importance of positive relationships with all stakeholders were fore

grounded - as was the importance of an awareness of the cultural and contextual make-up

of learners.

Good teaching practice is a key influence on student learning - a desired outcome and

primary goal of higher educational institutions. Teachers strive to meet the principles of

good practice in an effort to provide the best learning experience for their students. Key

considerations in shaping good teaching practice include:

 Encouraging good communication between teachers and learners

 Encouraging interaction among learners

 Providing opportunities for active participation

 Timely and appropriate response and feedback

 Emphasising time on task

 Motivating learning by communicating expectations

 Respecting diverse talents and ways of learning

Goals of Practice Teaching

The student teaching experience is designed to give the student a full time internship

under the supervision of a cooperating teacher. The Education Department requires that

the student’s total scholastic effort be devoted to the student teaching

experience. Specifically, the student will:

1. Observe and teach for a minimum period of 11 weeks during the second semester of the

senior year.

2. Create and teach from lesson plans made under the supervision of a licensed public or

private school teacher.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o |3

3. Gradually assume responsibility for teaching from three or more classes a day during

this period. (Teaching load may vary in relationship to the subject being taught and the

school schedule.)

4. Be responsible for administrative duties associated with these classes. This should

include attendance reports and other routine duties previously handled by the

cooperating teacher.

5. Assume responsibility for the grading of students in assigned classes.

6. Construct, administer, correct, and grade examinations for classes being taught.

7. Visit with administrative personnel and special education teachers about the total

educational system.

8. Assume duties in addition to daily classes. This could include study hall, small group

tutoring, or whatever is deemed necessary to make the schedule and experience as

complete as possible.

9. Become increasingly aware of the multicultural component of the classroom and

demonstrate skills for meaningful interaction among racial, ethic, gender, and

culturally diverse groups.

10. Established and maintain a positive, purposeful, and God-centred learning

environment that promotes positive social interaction, active engagement in learning

and self-motivation.

11. Communicate, collaborate, and consult with teacher, students, administrators, and

parents clearly and effectively in the educational process.

Student Teacher’s Educational Philosophy/Credo

Learning is the fundamental and ongoing process that every child and adult

experiences throughout their life. It is also the ultimate goal of teaching that is not possible

to realize if there are no teachers who act as facilitator.

I believe that all students can learn when they are accepted who and where they are in

their educational journey that’s why it is the duty of the teachers to fill in the needs of the

students because teaching is not merely stating the facts but it is also training the students

in varied activities that makes them as total competitive individuals.

As I enter this course I know that there should be lot of qualities that a teacher should

possess with and the most essential for me to be an exceptional teacher is through the

qualities of being kind, attentive, open minded, generous, creative and create a positive

learning environment for all. The first thing that I will do is to gain their trust because this

is the most special assets that I must get so that I can create a positive relationship with my

students. I will encourage and give those opportunities to learn and discover new things

that are not yet happening to their lives and most especially I will value all of them as I

value myself.

I believe that it is also important that I as an educator must provide the students with

adequate respect and will strive to be a responsible teacher taking all the students needs so

that I can start making a good foundation of quality learning for my students. Through this

I will then be able to develop new avenues in each chapter of their lives as a student.

I really believe in the saying “Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to

change the world and change starts in small things that’s why every students are train to

change in small things in school, home and their community.”

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o |9

As student teacher who aims to become a teacher, I will give my best to become a

fruitful and resourceful teacher for my future students bearing all the qualities of being a

good teacher.

I believe that the purpose of teaching is to let learning happen. Sometimes this means

just getting out of the way and keeping your opinions to yourself, and other times it means

intervening in decisive ways to make clear to students your seasoned, critical judgments

about the material being studied. I take Plutarch at his word that we are all capable of

making progress in virtue and capable of detecting signs of our approach toward it.

It is our duty to compare our present emotions with their former selves and with one

another, and thus determine differences. We must compare them with their former selves,

to see whether the desires, fears, anger, and passions which we are experiencing today are

less intense than they used to be, such a way we, by means of reason, they can rapidly get

rid of the causes that kindles and inflames them; and we must compare them with one

another, to see whether now we are more inclined to feel shame than fear, to be emulous

rather than envious, more eager for good repute than for money.

I believe it is always preferable to be direct and honest with and about oneself. This is

especially true for teachers. How else could we be trusted to work with those who have

come to us in earnest that we might help them shape their ideas and earn their diplomas,

and over whom we exercise some degree of authority whether in the form of grades or

status or simply experience? And so, my Credo is simple and it can be yours too.

I believe that remarkable works from the world's great traditions can tell us useful

things about how others have viewed and expressed what it means to be better, more
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 10

ennobled, humans; and, further, that we stand to learn a great deal from those accounts. It

is our further task to participate, and to become a part of it. Then and only then can we

allow it to become an abiding part of ourselves. It is in such moments of communion and

transfiguration that, I believe, what we seek to teach comes alive and continues to live a

renewed life in and through us. We give it life, even as it animates us.

I believe those who profess to be teachers must dedicate their lives to the pursuit of

learning, and must think constantly and deeply about what it means to be a teacher. A

teacher is someone who has made a deliberate decision to be dedicated to learning and

then to share what she or he has learned and continues to learn while teaching. I have found

a maxim that expresses this well: "cum docimus, discimus" [we learn as we teach].

Another motto by which I live and learn, closely related to the first, is "discere vivendo"(to

learn through living).

In addition, I believe that honouring our students, we have our obligations to the

books and concepts and axioms and facts that we teach as well as to the community within

which we happen to be teaching and (it is to be hoped) learning. Yet, above all, I believe an

educator should put his or her students first, and in this way contributes meaningfully to

the Commonwealth of Learning. It is this that enables our lessons, over time, to circulate

and reverberate honourably and amply in the communities of which our students are a part.

This we do without any thought of personal advancement or private gain. There is no

reward like no reward as one teacher of old put it so eloquently if cryptically.

I believe a teacher is someone who makes an on-going effort to listen to what students

are saying, to clue in to how they learn and to act on this appropriately. No matter what or
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 11

how we teach, it becomes our responsibility to help students learn enough to be able to

pose appropriately prior questions; namely, those fundamental questions upon which the

very ground of what they think they know is based. This means that teachers have a nearly

sacred trust and duty where their students are concerned. "No one is fit to educate unless he

feels each pupil an end in himself, with his own rights and his own personality, not merely

a piece in a jig-saw puzzle, or a soldier in a regiment, or a citizen in a State.

Henceforth, I believe that no matter what class or what topic I might happen to be

teaching, everything I do should be geared toward helping students see what they will be

able to do with what they have been studying. Often for me this takes the form of having

the students write critically or creatively (and often both at the same time) about what they

have been studying and at times to write in imitation of the book they have been reading.

But this is just a preliminary step. I believe further that every teacher is obliged to know in

advance and to be able to state clearly what he or she wants the students to be able to do

with the content of every lesson that is taught. It is in this respect that the real job of a

teacher is to discover ways of helping students gain confidence and competence in

learning how to learn what they need to know so that, along the way, they can begin to take

a more active, reflective, and responsible role in their learning.

I believe the ultimate role of the teacher is to be there for one's students as they "get" a

particular lesson or book, and then seek to move beyond the mere content of the instruction

toward the more far-reaching implications and underlying principles. This is as true when

I train fencers to riposte as it is when I show writers how to use the semi-colon. To be sure,

the acquisition and mastery of basic skills proper to each discipline is vital to working

effectively within that area of investigation. Still, once these basics are presented and
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 12

"learned," I labour to help my students discover within themselves their own characteristic

excellence; to discover for themselves how these basic skills can help them draw out,

buttress, and build on their native abilities and intellectual preferences.

I strive to enable them to recognize their strengths so as to cultivate them and then

apply what they have learned to other areas of study and activities in the world. Sometimes

this means taking the time to get to know how each of them learns. To do this honestly and

with integrity a teacher must strive to respect the worth and dignity of every student--and

often mark up a lot of homework assignments. Rather than subscribe to the doctrine of

"student management" (which maintains that any time given to students is time away from

your own, "more important," work), an educator must take seriously the charge implied in

the etymology of the word education, to lead I believe it is our challenge and our reward,

as educators, to lead our students out of and away from ignorance and toward a path most

appropriate for their seeking a heart of wisdom and subsequently acting nobly in the


The essence of my teaching, and what I hope to is still in each of my students (even as

I strive to learn it anew each time I put it to the test), is summed up well by Montaigne in

his essay "On Experience":

My Own Reflection

Professional Code of Ethics focuses on the protection of the patient to every

teacher right to appropriate, competent, and humane treatment, etiquette that are

considered good manners. It is not necessarily to be assumed that a professional code of

ethics has only one purpose.

As I read the Code of Ethics for professional teacher I learn that being a teacher

has many responsibilities to do and to follow. As I conceptualize it, I realized that being a

teacher is not easy because you need to learn more about the things that happen around

especially in teaching and learning process. When I read the code of ethics there are many

questions that enclose in my mind.

My code of ethics was the simplest thing I had to write. I need to possess dignity

and reputation with high moral values as well as technical and professional competence in

the practice of this noble profession. I know that I can develop a trustee of the cultural and

educational heritage of the nation and it is my under obligation to transmit learners such

heritage as well as to elevate national morality. I must possess and actualize a full

commitment and devotions to duty. Teachers are models of values. Whether conscious of

them or not, values are exhibited implicitly and explicitly. Values connote standards, code

of ethics and strong beliefs.

Student-Teaching Expectations

Student teacher is expected to fulfil all the responsibilities of a teacher.

 My experience as a student teacher will be an exciting and challenging one. In order

to ensure we are ready for the challenge of our rewarding programs we have

developed a set of expectations for our student teachers.

 To display commitment and enthusiasm when undertaking school experiences. I

understand that I may be required to attend parents’ meetings, staff meetings, etc

that are beyond of normal teaching hours.

 To show commitment in attending university and school sessions. I understand that

I can only be absent for genuine reasons and that I will notify the school, my

Our Mandate

The Department of Education was established through the Education Decree of

1863 as the Superior Commission of Primary Instruction under a Chairman. The Education

agency underwent many reorganization efforts in the 20th century in order to better define

its purpose Vis a Vis the changing administrations and charters. The present day

Department of Education was eventually mandated through Republic Act 9155, otherwise

known as the Governance of Basic Education act of 2001 which establishes the mandate of

this agency.

The Department of Education (DepEd) formulates, implements, and coordinates

policies, plans, programs and projects in the areas of formal and non-formal basic

education. It supervises all elementary and secondary education institutions, including

alternative learning systems, both public and private; and provides for the establishment

and maintenance of a complete, adequate, and integrated system of basic education

relevant to the goals of national development.

My Tasks

Week 1

1. The Cooperating Schools Expectation

I am assigned at Gulayon Integrated School. My expectation of Gulayon Integrated

School is that it has a flexible classroom. It is also clean and conducive for learning. It has

an allowance for free movement, time allotment and even in decision making.

What I expect for our cooperating school is that, we will be accommodated

accordingly. I expect that the teachers and all the staff of the said school are approachable.

I also expect that this school has a wide playground; a canteen inside, consists of many

classrooms with respective comfort rooms and well ventilated. Most importantly I expect

that it has more numbers of pupils who study in this institution because parents want their

children to be safe and it is away from traffic it is safe for them to go to school every day.

But, what I expect the most is that my cooperating school which is the Gulayon

Integrated School will be the foundation to build my effectiveness, my ability and my

capability to become a future teacher someday. That this school is my key to gain more

knowledge about on how to deal pupils that possesses different level of understanding.

More importantly, I expect that I learn more on how to impart or input knowledge and

information to the children effectively. I also expect that this school will be my training

ground on how to act professionally when it comes to dealing with the teachers around the


I’m looking forward that this school can mold me into an effective teacher and

efficient teacher in the near future.

2. The Facilities of the Cooperating School

Teaching is not effective without any facilities in school. Gulayon Integrated School

has various facilities that make it conducive for learning. Gulayon Integrated School is

such a big school. As I observed, the school has many facilities. The school has a computer

laboratory and library which means that they have complete facilities to ensure students’


On the other hand, the school has a gymnasium wherein various activities were held.

Moreover, the school had enough classrooms to accommodate every pupil to learn. I was

also amazed because each classroom has a comfort room and a mini-library. Having the

different facilities in the cooperating school made the institution community conducive and

effective in teaching.

I observe therefore that the school has all the facilities that ensure the pupils’

development in all learning areas and so within the extra – curricular activities.

Here are some of the facilities taken from Gulayon Integrated School:

a. Library

Is the heart of the school because it serves as the depository of books that brings

knowledge and where both teachers and pupils can widen their minds especially for better

classroom climate that is conducive for learning.

c. Guidance Office

This is where the students will be given advises from the guidance counselor

if they commit mistakes from other students like; physical harassment and even in

b. Cooperating Teacher

I am assigned in Grade II - Santan and my cooperating teacher is Mrs. Flordelyn G.

Nevaliza. She is such a good teacher. First time I saw her, I said myself I’m blessed to be

with her. I can learn a lot from her and it is a big challenged for me when it comes to teach

any subjects, maybe God have a plan for that. So I prepared myself whatever comes to me

any challenges in my assign subject and teaching.

c. Orientation Seminar

Our seminar gives us insight and information about the K – 12 programs. It

enlightened our mind about this K – 12 curriculums’, what benefits can we get from it and

why we adapt this curriculum.

We also oriented on what to do and not to do when we are already deployed. Some of

this are, you must arrive ahead of your critic, obey your critic, you must avoid being late.

Truly, I learned a lot of important and good things in the seminar. I benefited from the

information I acquired in the sense that I don’t had any idea before of what was happening

in the curriculum, most especially the implementation of the K-12 Program, but the

orientation made me realize how the government earnestly wanted to develop the skills of

every Filipino citizen to become globally competitive individuals.

d. Orientation of the Cooperating Principal

During our first day of deployment t we are oriented by our cooperating principal. He

gives us all the reminders, the dos and don’ts in their school. We must arrive in the school

as early as 7:00 to remind the pupils of their daily morning task and their classes start at

exactly 7:30. He also reminds us that we avoid “chismis” because it is not happening in

their school. Mr. Ferdinand Dinampo welcomed us as his interns. He introduced us to our
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 43

assigned grade level and to our respective cooperating teachers. He also shared to us some

inspirational and encouraging message and congratulated us for this new chapter in life. I

learned to accept and to be open-minded enough to understand my pupil’s.

e. School Tour

Gulayon Integrated School is such a big school; there are lots of classrooms. It has a

covered court where all their activities and program are held. As we tour around the

campus, I noticed that is spacious. They have their kitchen room and a canteen. The School

is well – organized.

4. Responsibilities as a Student Teacher

As a student teacher there are lots of responsibilities to be taken care of. First is my

responsibility to the pupil, to mold them into a better person in this world. I will teach them

all things that I learned with all my best, I will be a model for them and I will act as a real

teacher to gain their respect. I have the responsibility to input knowledge and information

that are useful to them, and show them how to respect with each other.

As a part of the school community my responsibility to Gulayon Integrated School is

to help develop well – equipped learners that are competitive globally. It is also my duty to

obey their school rules. As a student teacher I must accept and obey whatever the principal,

my critic or even other teachers want me to do in a right way.

My responsibilities as a student teacher are to handle the tasks given to me by my critic

teacher and to obey the rules of the school such as:

 Come to school early.

 Wear proper attire /uniform.

 Always prepare the lesson beforehand.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 44

 Have proper classroom management.

 Acquire good appearance, posture and with a pleasing personality.

5. How Did I Feel When I saw My Cooperating School?

When I saw my cooperating school, I was surprised because it is a big school. I am

glad to watch the whole campus. Then, I realized that I am now facing the great

responsibilities that lied in my hands. I felt happy and a little bit nervous since I am new to

this and I will be part of their journey. The challenge that makes me happy and a little

nervous because it is not easy to handle another task which whom you build every learners

to become a better person in the society. Even though I have those feeling still I do hope

that I can accomplish successfully. Above all, I trust in Him that He may guide me with this

new ladder of my life.

6. The Tools That I Need to Bring in My Cooperating School

a. Knowledge

It is one of the most important tools that I need to bring in my cooperating school. It is

the sword towards ignorance. It views learning to teach a lifelong process and dispositions.

As a student teacher, I have the task to input knowledge to the learners so that they will

gain the quality of learning as they continue to embrace the power of education that can

transform lives. Then, I know that if good teachers have these qualities which are

knowledgeable, we can help many individuals to become successful.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 45

b. Attitudes

Values and attitudes are important tools that I need to possess as part of good qualities

that everyone who likes that every educator must have. Teachers are models of values.

Whether conscious of them or not, values are exhibited implicitly and explicitly. Sincerity

and honesty are values exhibited in words and actions. Teachers interact with students

every minute. Therefore as a future teacher, we should unbiased and objectives in judging

the work and activities of the learners. I should be open-minded and patient.

c. Skills

The skills are another tool that I need bring to my cooperating school in which I can

share to the learners that I handled. It determines my capacity to understand and assimilate

information for my own use and application. I should show and make them realize that not

all people are intellectual in their way but we still have the chance to show our talents and

abilities in different and unique ways physically, mentally and naturally. As a student

teacher I really need this as one of my equipment to implement motivation in performance

skills are contingent on my own endowed potential to learn.

d. Habits

I need to widen their mind. I will give those reasons and meaning of what their

difficulties in understanding. In doing such thing we can continue it in a good and

beneficial way. The good habits that I can impart to my learners are being friendly, patient,

respectful and open-minded.

I - Rosas M-T-W-Th-F 1:00-5:00 Juicy B. Mox

8. Reflection

As I reflect to myself being a student teacher, I learned that teachers are not just an

intellectual or knowledgeable educators as well as we must possess the skills, habits and

also good qualities. Teachers must be resourceful in order to sustain the knowledge that the

pupils need. I am really prepared to teach because teaching has always been my passion,

and I have my experienced to teach during my internship. I have established a good

relationship with my pupils.

a. Am I really prepared to teach?

Actually this is not my first time to handle an actual demonstration in a real classroom

situation because we have already gone so many field studies. Still, I cannot make myself

not to feel nervous when I enter my classroom assignment. As I observe the class that I

have to handle for almost two months, many question formulated in my mind. Am I really

prepared? Do I have the ability and capability to teach? Can I be an effective teacher?

At first I really not fell confidence shall I say I am not that prepared to face the big

responsibilities that lies ahead. But as the days goes on, I am able to manage myself

confident, I come up with the negative thought inside my head.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 47

As my internship goes on, facing the reality as a real teacher, teaching Grade II –

Santan pupils, obeying the entire task given by my critic teacher, I told to myself that I

must not have the thought of giving up. I am already at the middle of my internship, I

realized then that this is my best way to get prepared and be equipped with all the skills and

ability to become an effective teacher someday.

With all the things I learned from my internship, I am now capable of handling much

bigger responsibilities. My experienced teaches me how to be ready and prepared.

Week 2

1. My Task and Responsibilities as Instructed by my Cooperating Teacher

Being a student teacher, the job that my cooperating teacher instructed to me are the

following: to facilitate the class, to supervise the pupils during their classroom activities, to

guide the learners and to instruct the pupils on what to do. Every morning she let me

monitor the pupils cleaning their assigned area if they are performing their task

cooperatively. She also instructed me to facilitate her students in their group learning

activities and to observe the behaviour of her students. She also let me records the scores of

her pupils every time they had quizzes. Most of all, she told me to handle and take good

care of her class if she is not around. During my demonstration my critic teacher observes

me. Afterwards, she gave me some remarks and suggestions that can help me to be better in

my next lesson. It is not easy to do such task but I was inspired the moment that my pupils

where participating actively. With that methods and tips that she shares to me, I develop the

attitudes of trying alternatives procedures until I obtain satisfactory results. I never get tired

of making lesson plan because I conditioned myself that I can make the learners more

active as time pass by.

2. My Observation report in assisting my Cooperating Teacher

I consider my resource teacher to be the one of my best mentors because I observed

that in her lesson, she is really prepared. All her instructional materials for the lesson are

already organized. One thing I admire the most is her confident and active personality

which is evident whenever she talks. She taught me to be one of the best in my profession.

I really admire my resource teacher for guiding, teaching and supporting me.
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 49

3. My Own Expectations

I have so many expectations even when we are not deployed yet. One is that I can have

a critic teacher which is approachable and open – minded and pupils that are responsive

and active in terms of class discussion. As I started my first demonstration teaching, I

realized that the saying goes “expect the unexpected” is really true. It is because as I

encounter my pupils I am in the point of giving up, but proud to say that I have so many

patients at that time. So now, all I can do is to give my best to be able to achieve my goal to

pass and be the one of the best teachers in the society. I am expecting also that this off

–campus student experiences will allow me to develop my competencies in teaching

students, handling various kinds of learners and in managing the classroom. This would be

a great adjustment for me in such that I am a beginner.

4. The Characteristics of the learners I am handling

This is my first time to face and handle learners like this, there are noisy types of

learners, a very foolish one, but there are some who were responsible enough, caring and

intelligent aside from that some have the difficulty of understanding and comprehending

reading textbooks. I was assigned in the class wherein most of the pupils are very bright

and serious in their studies and very matured. I’m proud and thank God for giving me a

blessed pupils and critic teacher, because of them I really inspired in teaching and keep

positive in front of them while I’m teaching. They are also kind, respectful, and industrious

to my Cooperating Teacher.
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 50

5. Synopsis about the Developmental Stages of the Grade Level I Am Handling

The developmental stages of the grade level I am handling is expressed by Lawrence

Kohlberg’ stages of moral development, which the first level is Pre-Conventional. Stage

one (obedience and punishment driven), is the individual focus on the direct consequences

of their actions on themselves. In stage two (self-interest driven) exposes “what’s in it for

me” position, in which right behaviour is defined by whatever the individual believes to

be in their best interest but understood in a narrow way which does not consider one’s

reputation or relationship to groups of people. Example of this is that one is motivated by

fear of punishment. He will act in order to avoid punishment.

6. My First encounter with my Cooperating Teacher

My cooperating teacher is a very approachable one. She possess a good quality of a

teacher and she accepted me as part of her class and as a co – teacher. I felt secured and

happy that she was my critic teacher. I know that I can learn a lot from her. She reminded

everything and tells me what to do as a student – teacher. She has just moulded me into a

better and effective teacher. We became close and she treated me more than I can hope for.

She is kind because she is always there for me, to give encouragement so that I can do my

best to be successful in life. Furthermore, she gave some advises on how to be an effective

teacher. Above all, she exerted effort in helping me whenever I have a problem related to

my demonstration teaching.

7. My First dealing with my Learners

In my first dealing with the learners, I observed that they are good students. They are

behaved when their teacher starts discussing the lesson. Every time I start my

Demonstration teaching I realized they can do it smoothly because they are intelligence
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 51

learners. They are responsible for every action they made and to make it short they are

active in many ways. I am blessed that I belong to a group of pupils who are respectful. In

the classroom I observed that they are attentive pupils, easy to learned, matured, kind and

respectful to their teacher.

8. Reflection

I am really meant for the teaching profession because I have a passion to learn and the

love to teach what I learned. I am also patient in dealing with the children. I am able to

impart knowledge and most especially I can talk in front of the learners confidently and


a. I am really meant for teaching profession because…

The moment that I face my pupils, I then say that I really meant for this profession. I

ready meant to teach the young ones on how to read and write. And I am meant to mould

their minds and equip them with the knowledge that is useful to them, that can help sustain

their needs and so within the society.

I am really for this profession because I just don’t love it, I also love to teach and as I

learn that being a passionate teachers exude spontaneity in ministering to the needs of the

pupils specially those experiencing learning difficulties.

Week 3

1. My Task and Responsibilities as Instructed by my Cooperating Teacher

In my daily assignment, my cooperating teacher assigned me a job to facilitate my

pupils in cleaning the room before she arrived. I need to facilitate them in order to maintain

cleanliness in the room. She said that I am going to act as a teacher and let the pupils do

their assign task every morning. I am here to instruct the pupils to get inside the classroom

before the official time for them to prepare themselves in the learning process. I need to

facilitate them in order to teach a lesson that they cannot get easily, and to help them

perform tasks that they need to do as a learner.

2. The learning resources of the Cooperating School that I utilized

The learning resources that I utilized with my cooperating teacher were books,

chalkboards, eraser, bulletin board and dictionary which help me a lot in putting

knowledge and information to the learners mind. These learning resources are very

important to the learners. With the help of these resources, it is easy for me to inject

information to them. The learners learn so many things with the help of those resources.

Aside from instructing them, I usually use the different learning resources by injecting

techniques, objects in which they can directly find exact data and information.

4. The Importance/Uses of the Cooperating School Facilities in the

Teaching-Learning Process

The quality of a school’s environment and its facilities has a strong influence on pupils

learning. Besides regular use in organizing and managing a school’s activities, records of a

school’s physical facilities and material resources such as furniture and equipment can

provide data to derive many indicators for accessing the quality education in a school.

The schools have records and data about the availability of the materials and facilities

that every learner can use. They have faucets in each classroom, toilets, electricity,

canteen, and other different tools and services in school. The maintenance and

administrators record the following information so that they can use it to evaluate the

whole facilities in school. They are needed to inspect it then set priorities so that they will

improve it. Administrators ensure and staff, as stewards of the institution, ensures and

enabling and supportive environment for effective and other stakeholder re-actively

engage and share responsibility for developing lifelong learners. As a whole, facilities are

one way that the learner’s learning will be enhanced and developed.

5. The Ideas about my Cooperating School as My Second Home

I considered my cooperating school as my second home. Most of my times are spent

inside the school. I develop myself here to become an effective teacher. So, I need to ensure

that the school can make me feel comfortable, can enhance my ability to teach and

developed my effectiveness as a teacher. In this home, I experienced the warm welcome of

my cooperating teacher. Ma’am Mercy taught me how to deal with my pupils and motivate

me to be a good person. I can say that I am enjoying as well as comfortable in the sense that
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 57

my cooperating teacher treat me in very nice way, she accepted me with an open arms and

shares every learning that I need to learn from her.

6. I can always make my second home:

A. Safe and Secured by

First is to maintain the cleanliness of the classroom. Second is to imposed proper

discipline of the learners and to treat the learners fairly. It is also safe and secured when it

comes to the security of the whole school community because the school has a security


B. Friendly by

Being friendly is one of the key aspects to make a peaceful and united home. In order

to achieve this goal, I should build a good and happy relation with my pupils, teachers,

principal and generally the people around me.

Dealing with the learners in a fair manner and addressing their difficulties with all the

best that I can. Friendly by giving the learners some advises when they needed it and letting

them feel comfortable during our discussion.

C. Non-threatening

To have a good quality is one way to have a best home. Threatening is not a good habit

especially for a teacher to have pupils left behind, cannot be able to develop their

self-esteem and always afraid. I can always make second home non-threatening in the

sense that all the learners can actively participate in class discussion and can freely express

their thoughts and opinions.

7. Reflection: After Analyzing the Cooperating School’s Vision, Mission and Goals

a. I realized that…

Every Filipino has the right to be educated. Learners need to be treated in a friendly

and gender-sensitive, safe and motivating environment. I realized that the important goal

of teaching is that to have a product of being effective, efficient and holistic individual in

the society. Therefore as a future teacher, it is a big responsibility that all the knowledge

and information that you have to input to their minds must be true and can response their

needs. I also realized that being a teacher it is obliged to obey all the rules and regulations

imposed, and to follow the code of ethics.

b. So I need to…

Study the things that I did not encounter during my practice teaching and I need to

work hard to achieve the goals, mission and vision of the schools by practicing or applying

it always. And make sure that I can learn what are the rules to be follow, the polices and

even the usual practices that the teachers are doing, that can enhance my ability in this

chosen profession.

Week 4

1. The Daily Classroom Routines Performed by my Cooperating Teacher

The classroom routines that are performed by my cooperating teacher are a daily task

in their life. Teacher usually performs the following:

-Conducting a flag ceremony inside the gymnasium every Monday. If it is not Monday

the different grade levels are having their flag ceremony is inside their respective rooms.

- A prayer before the class starts.

- Letting the pupils conduct a sharing period.

- Having different types of claps for the pupils who participate in the class.

- Checking the daily attendance of the pupils.

2. Synopsis on Establishing Classroom Routines

One important thing that I should do to make efficient and effective routines, we

should have to apply the proper routine and instruct it properly to the learners. We can

catch the pupils’ attention when we start the class with enthusiasm in our own appearance.

If you have set a routine, you can have your students carry out daily tasks that require a

high level of responsibility. They may not perfect it the first or even second time, but doing

something every day is a sure-fire way to become proficient on it. If I’m going to motivate

them to their assign task, they will know also how to work without always reminding them.

I gathered information that shadowing opportunities in every learner they will develop

their capabilities base on what is implementing routines to them. Classroom routines are

the way of training them to become an independent and self – discipline in their own

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 60

3. My observation on the following:

a. Attendance

I observe that my critic teacher checked the pupils’ attendance daily. If she is busy of

here works, she asked me to check their attendance so that she can determined who is

absent and present in the class. It is our responsibilities to monitor them not only their

learning’s but also physical condition. Checking attendance is important because you are

liable to your learners’ safety.

b. Passing of Papers /books

The pupils have a routine to pass their papers in front for checking and the book will be

distributed from the front to the back.

In passing papers and books, they do it by row. Through this procedure they can make

it in a proper way without any noise. I always did the formative way to discipline each one.

I have another way of imposing other rules in passing the papers and books. I also prefer to

assign one pupil each row to collect books and returned it to the book shelves. Sometimes I

will countdown in passing their papers.

c. Getting Materials

It usually happens during group activity, the leader will come and collect the materials

and take it to their respective groups.

When getting materials, the pupils are just waiting in their chair until the materials

being return to them. But sometimes, I will let the leader with each row get the materials.

That’s why I write my rules in the chalkboard or a piece of Manila paper so that they can

recall of what I’ve been assign.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 61

d. Making Assignments

After the lesson, the teacher will give the assignment and reminders to the pupils to

copy or to list it down. In making assignment or reminders the teacher will announce in

front of the class. She also writes on piece of Manila paper so that everybody will know

about the information that being posted or implemented.

4. The routines that I have established to become a better classroom manager

I will follow the routines of my critic teacher. Like what I am doing, I set rules and

regulations for them to follow to have a better classroom; example: they need to come to

school early. When my critic teacher instructs me, I just simply obey her. With that I can

learn how to manage classroom effectively. During discussions, I follow her steps and

procedure on how to use the methods efficiently. My critic taught me how to use the

appropriate way of classroom management. She suggested and instructed me clearly until I

catch what are the things that I should do in order to improve my way of imparting

knowledge to pupils.

5. The Rules that I have set in my Class

In order to maintain the orderliness of the classroom, I will make some rules that

must follow the every pupil;

 Avoid playing inside the classroom.

 Stop roaming around the room when the class started.

 Follow rules and regulations in school.

 Things must be place properly after using it.

 Come to school early.

 Do your assign task.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 62

 Help each other.

 Avoid talking with your seatmate.

 Speak English or Filipino.

 Listen attentively.

 Raise your right hand if you want to answer.

 Do not answer in chorus.

 Avoid doing something during class hours.

 Be honest in all your work.

 Avoid roaming

 Answer when you are called.

 Do not shout/talk while the teacher is discussing.

 They must have set aside some time to study their lesson before

going to bed.

 Pupils must wear proper uniform to be recognized as a pupil.

 Keeping tables and chairs in order before leaving the room.

 Cleaning chalkboard to be ready for the next topic.

6. Reflection

When I already have my own classroom in the future, I want to implement the

proper classroom management, time management and daily routines in order to have

conducive environment for learning. I want my pupils to follow the rules that I am

imposing. I also want to employ that my student should behave and participate in all

discussions so that they can learn more.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 63

a. If I already have my own class in the future, I want to employ

The achievement of the goals in every lesson that the student should identify or

realize it. With this I can say that my purpose is being achieved also. Teaching big aim is

learning these two is inseparable, meaning teaching without learning is useless it should be

that there are always outcome or transfer or knowledge. These are the things that I would

like to employ to my future students.

January 18 - 19, 2018 (Week 1)

This was the first week of my internship at Gulayon Integrated School. The principal

Sir Dinampo welcomed us warmly. She was approachable. I was assigned to Grade II -

Santan and my critic teacher is Ma’am Flordelyn G. Nevaliza. I am the only one intern

assigned in that section. At first I felt nervous, worried and uncomfortable. There were

negative thoughts forming in my mind. I was afraid that my critic teacher was strict and not

approachable. But I was mistaken because Ma’am Mercy was very approachable,

kind-hearted and a very nice teacher. I was observed also that the Grade II - Santan is very

noisy and sometimes they also behaved as well.

This was the week that I need much adjustment because I need to adapt the new

environment; the nature of learners on how to deal with them and also to my critic teacher.

At first, I feel conscious and ashamed to my critic teacher. But later on, I know that my

critic teacher is friendly to me. Regarding my relationship with the pupils, its good. They

treat me as they would their real teachers. I love kids so it is easy for me to establish

harmonious relationship with them.

January 22 - 26, 2018 (Week 2)

This was the second week of my internship in Gulayon Integrated School. Everything

seemed okay, because I had adjusted a little bit. This week, I already started my first actual

demonstration. I had experienced some sleepless nights, sometimes I felt tired and

discouraged but I challenged myself not to give up. During my actual teaching it’s not so

good because I cannot control the behaviour of the pupils, their responses, etc. At first, I

felt a little bit nervous but so far I did it well. The pupils listened what I had discussed to
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 65

them and they cooperated during the class activities. In terms of learning, they are fast

learners; they can easily understand the lesson.

According to ma’am Flor, I need constant practices. Avoid facing in the chalkboard

when talking or explaining the lesson. Furthermore, Ma’am Flor said that I am good in the

way of teaching, with that comments, I am so overwhelmed.

January 29 - February 2, 2018 (Week 3)

This is the 3rd week of my internship. I can say that it is not an easy task to be a teacher

someday. There are times that I had to sleep late at night and had to come to school so

stressed. It is not easy to deal with pupils; we should have more patience. I was very

thankful that my critic teacher accepted me in her classroom.

As what I have observed, the pupils listened to their teacher during their class. In

cleaning the classroom, the pupils helped each other to clean the room. The pupils are

helpful, courteous, behaved and they respect you as a teacher.

February 5 -9, 2018 (Week 4)

During my actual demonstration, my nervousness was lessened and I am much more

confident in teaching. I have lots of experiences in school and I learned more because I

teach every day. It was a great challenge to me as soon to be a teacher someday. In fact, it is

easy to teach to those pupils who are fast learners. When I am teaching, I always think

positive that I’ll do it! Thanks God that I’ll made it. My demonstration was successful

because the pupils will participate to my discussion.

It was really a blissful experience for me to teach in Gulayon Integrated School that I’d

rather packed to my mind and never forget. Everything that includes the reminiscence I had

with my pupils as well with my critic teacher.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 66

February 12 - 16, 2018 (Week 5)

Another week of sacrifice, although this time I had adjusted a little, I had new friends

in the form of Grade 1 and 2 pupils. I felt tired and stressed it is because our schedule in our

special demonstration is nearly coming. So I am preparing with my visual aids, lesson plan,

and my explanation to make my special demonstration effective and good to my pupils. My

critic teacher helps me in my lesson plan. She gave me a topic and then the references in

guiding in making a lesson plan. She corrected my lesson plan.

February 19 -23, 2018 (Week 6)

This week I was busy preparing for my special demonstration teaching. I was thankful

to Ma’am Flor that she helped me prepared my special demo. February 23, 2018, was the

schedule of my special demonstration teaching. My observers were Joanne S. Pontioso and

Joan C. Dumalasan. Special demonstration teaching was just an ordinary day for me. At

first, I felt a little bit nervous but when my performance goes on and so far I did it well. The

pupils listened what I had discussed to them and they cooperated during the class activities.

Thanks God, the observers gave me a nice grade. After my demonstration teaching I felt

happy and relaxed. I felt that it was a great achievement to me. After my special

demonstration, I had experienced again some sleepless nights making lesson plans and

visual aids. Aside from that I was able to portray a good relationship with the pupils.

February 26 - March 2, 2018 (Week 7)

No time to relaxed, because I was busy doing my lesson plans and visual aids. Even

though I want to hang out with my friends and family but my mind says that I will do

hangouts with friends and family after my business in school. It is because my target was to

finish the forty actual teachings. It’s alright! At least I learned a lot from my experience
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 67

despite some sleepless nights. I also learned how to deal with different characteristics of

pupils inside the class.

March 5 - 9, 2018 (Week 8)

This was the 8thweek of my internship here at Gulayon Integrated School. Same as

usual, I was doing my actual demonstration teaching. Final demonstration teaching was

fast approaching. I was busy preparing for my visual aids and lesson plans. Ma’am Flor

also supported me in my upcoming final demonstration teaching. She taught me some

techniques and strategies like how to introduce the lesson in interesting manner and to

motivate the learners. My final demonstration is on March 13, 2018. I have 1 week to

prepare for my Final Demonstration.

March 12 – 16, 2018 (Week 9)

This week was my Final demonstration teaching. During my final demonstration, I felt

very nervous, my hands were shaking and my heart beats like have an earthquake. I really

don’t know what I’m feeling that time because it is a final demonstration. But I really thank

God for giving me strength because I gain confidence to teach in front. My observer is

Ma’am Victoria B. Canoneo. I am so tired because of making the instructional materials

but I am glad that I had delivered my lesson successfully and got nice grades from my

observer. I am very thankful to my critic teacher Ma’am Flor for her guidance and full

support to make my final demonstration a successful one.

March 19 - 23, 2018 (Week 10)

Wow, finally this was the last week of my internship in Gulayon Integrated School. I

can’t believe that I could finish my internship. I’m happy because my 40 actual

demonstrations had already done. My critic teacher always told me that never forget the
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 68

technique and strategies that she teaches me which I am using during my demonstrations.

And I will never forget that.

1. Working with Pupils

Learners are part of the learning process. They are the key participants in the learning

process and the teachers are the prime mover of the educational wheel.

My experiences working with my pupils are not easy to do because some of them are

hard – headed. I can’t manage them without the help of my cooperating teacher. I could

observe that they will only obey what I say if I tell them that I am going to deduct their

score when they are misbehaving. Working with pupils also were one of the most

memorable moments in my internship. I faced a lot of difficulties and had to adjust the

pupil’s various behaviours. But then time goes by and I learned how to handle with them. It

cannot be avoided that there are students who are stubborn, so one thing I put in my mind

always is patience. It is the most important thing to consider in this profession. Dealing

with pupils was a very challenging task for me.

2. Working with the School Personnel

a. The Critic Teacher

Working with my critic teacher was a big opportunity for me. My critic teacher was

Mrs. Flordelyn G. Nevaliza. I am so proud to have a critic teacher like her because she is

good and equipped with so much knowledge. She treats me as her co – teacher during my

duties together with her.

I observed that she was approachable. I learned a lot from my critic teacher because

she taught me how to deal with the pupils, in lesson planning, and also the strategies and
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 69

techniques in teaching. My critic teacher was understanding and competitive. I was very

thankful to her for a nice experience.

b. The Cooperating Principal

First day of my internship, we met the principal of Gulayon Integrated School, Mr.

Ferdinand Dinampo. He was very approachable, kind and intelligent.

I don’t hesitate to approach him because he was very nice to us. We felt that we are

accepted in their institution. He was very understanding especially in the situation of both

students and teachers. He was very helpful to those in need. He has a big heart and an

open-minded person. I was very thankful for the opportunity to explore and practice my

chosen field in this school.

c. Other School Staff

I thank God also that almost all the school staff of Gulayon Integrated School was very

approachable. We often used to discussed and exchanged ideas about teaching strategies,

in lesson planning and some techniques to be a good and effective teacher. We have a good

relationship with them, in general.

3. Working with the Community

a. Community Survey

I thought that I deserved to be part of the community of the School of Gulayon, in

which I had established good rapport with the stakeholders that I encountered. They

accepted and respected me for what I am and in return I also showed gratitude and respect

to them. In fact, I felt amazed by what they showed me.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 70

b. Origin/History/Assets

c. Traditions/Customs/Practices

A tradition is a belief or behavior passed down within a group or society with

symbolic meaning or special significance with origins in the past. The community of

Gulayon had the tradition of celebrating fiesta, greetings, and the people are very

hardworking and strive to make life better for the next generation of their family.
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 71

4. Actual Classroom Teaching

In my actual classroom teachings, I admit it was very difficult for me as a beginner. I

experienced some sleepless nights and some stressful days. I realized that to be an effective

teacher you must strive hard to be better. It is very difficult for me to adjust to the different

behaviours of learners. But I took it as a challenge because I believe that the best teachers

work hard to figure out how to relate to each of their pupils.

In my 40 actual classrooms teaching all I can say is that it is good that I was able to

experience this kind of practice. It trained me how to handle a class with pupils that are

having different ability, different attitude and different family background. It is really good

to put – up a class that is gender – sensitive and safe.

The most important quality that every teacher should possess is love and passion for

teaching young minds. I was thankful for my experience during my practice teaching

because this plays a big part for my future. I learned some techniques and strategies in

teaching. I’m also thankful that I’ve finished my 40 actual demonstrating teaching. I’ve

learned a lot from it which I could use it to my classroom someday.

5. Special Demonstration Teaching

Special demonstration teaching was a great challenge for me. It is not easy to teach

with some observers. Nervous, tense, and mixed emotions I felt. One thing I did is to have

peace of mind, trusting God and believe in myself.

During my special demonstration teaching, I prepared everything; I have my lesson

plan and visual aids. Before I start my lesson, I felt nervous in front. There are negative

things that come out into my mind. These are the reason that’s why I felt uncomfortable.
F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 72

But I realized that I need to be strong so that I can perform successfully. When I started my

topic, I have courage to teach until I done my topic successfully.

During my demonstration teaching I noticed that, it is not easy because I feel

uncomfortable to face the observer when they are observing me while I am demonstrating

my lesson to my class. Even I feel uncomfortable but still I discussed my lesson well.

6. Final Demonstration Teaching

Final demonstration teaching is the biggest and important challenge for me to do. I had

the same feeling during my special demonstration teaching. I know that these things are not

easy to fulfil. Student teachers must know how to teach pupils the different things that they

want them to learn and of course knows how to transfer the learning to their students with

the use of different approaches and strategies.

I am glad that I done the task with all my best and the efforts. I thank God for giving

me such opportunity and guided me in my journey. At last I’ve done this practice –

teaching not just for the sake of requirements. I did it with all the best that I can be. I really

act as a real teacher even in just a short period of time. One thing they advised to do is

constant practice and yes I believe that practice makes perfect!

1. Self assessment for being a Student Teacher

I, as a student teacher of Gulayon Integrated School I experienced many difficulties

and problems during my internship. But all of the obstacles and problems are having a

solution. As a student teacher there are many things to observe and consider. Not only in

lesson planning , dealing with learners and learning some techniques and strategies but

also I found out that in each classroom there is indeed a need for proper classroom

management. As I went there, I have observed that those things are very crucial because it

makes the learning environment conducive and organized.

When I started with my internship I was afraid to face the challenges, I have lots of

questions bothering me. These questions are: do I deserve to be here in this school? How to

handle different learners? Who is my cooperating teacher? Is she good? These are the

questions that make me feel uncomfortable and out of confidence. The days had passed;

my internship was really a part of my life. I cannot help myself but think of a thousand

times. Do I really belong here? Am I effective? Do I have the quantities of a good teacher?

And these questions are my fuss how to be strong, how to develop my determination that I

could be a teacher someday. I learned that the biggest challenge I am facing is the constant

practice of my chosen vocation that can enhance me to experience the real scenario of my


Practice teaching helped me to become knowledgeable. This is the best experience I

could not forget because it built me to become an effective educator.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 74

2. Personal point of view of Student Teaching Experiences

Through my experiences in my internship, I found out that teachers indeed have a very

big role to play in the education process; they are the ones responsible for making the

student’s good citizens, models and catalyst for change. There is a big responsibility that

lies upon the shoulders of the teachers.

Being a student teacher is not easy because you can encounter different trials and

obstacles during the days of duties. Sometimes you can encounter difficulties regarding

classroom management in the first day of duties. But these problems are the spices of how

you are sincere to your determination to teach.

I enjoyed my teaching practice and I enhance my thinking skills to gain more valuable

information. I learned how to mingle with my co – interns and to approach the other

teachers if my resource teacher asks me to send some requirements to them. The days had

passed of my internship; I develop myself to act professionally in front of my pupils. I was

blessed that God gave me a good Cooperating Teacher who is willing to support and

understand in terms of my weaknesses. She is like my real mother that who support me and

she lets me know the best lessons that I need to learn.

In addition, being a student teacher, you need to follow everything that is given to you

by your critic teacher. Learned to act as a real teacher in front of the class. Act

professionally to gain the respect of the pupils. Accept all suggestions coming from your

critic and also from the teaching staff in the campus.

F i e l d S t u d y 7 – P r a c t i c e T e a c h i n g P o r t f o l i o | 75


I choose this lesson plan; it is because I am enjoying discussing this topic to my pupils.

Before I start my topic, I am preparing first my warm up activities, and that activity is the

clue of what topic I am discussing to them. My pupils and I are very excited to start our

lesson. When I started, as I was observed to my pupils that they are very attentive when I

am started talking in front. I’ll let them stand to do our warm up activities. We exercise our

eyes. After that, I discuss to them the dos and don’ts. And when it comes to the activity, I’ll

group them into four and then in each group it will also divide by two. One group will

perform the dos and second group will perform the don’ts. When time over, I’ll call first

the first group. They performed very well in front. I am happy and enjoying their

performance which is the role play. The next is the second group, third group, and the last

group. And when it comes to their quiz, they come up with a very good score. Some of

them got a high score.

"Professional development ... goes beyond the term 'training' with its implications

of learning skills, and encompasses a definition that includes formal and informal means of

helping teachers not only learn new skills but also develop new insights into the pedagogy

and their own practice, and explore new or advanced understandings of content and

resources. This definition of professional development includes support for teachers as

they encounter the challenges that come with putting into practice their evolving

understandings about the use of technology to support inquiry-based learning.... Current

technologies offer resources to meet these challenges and provide teachers with a cluster of

supports that help them continue to grow in their professional skills, understandings, and

“Reading PD study,” for short) and the Middle School Mathematics Professional

and MDRC for the U.S. Department of Education. The professional development that was

provided went far beyond the “one-shot” workshop approach that has been widely

criticized; it instead included intensive summer institutes, follow-up group sessions, and

coaching of individual teachers. The evaluations of the interventions employed random
