Student Portfolio Being a future educator this portfolio is very important because this is the observation will help me in the future on what is happening on the real world of being a teacher. In this observation is an eye opener what will you do when you are on that position. You will always seek first for the education of the student even if it is hard to become a teacher it is one of the best experience to see how the class is going on what are the thing you need to improve and for the school what are the best thing that you can do for your student. This profession make me realize that being a teacher is not just a job it is a whole life commitment to your school, student and to the parents who look forward to you for the success of their child. A student portfolio is a compilation of academic work and other forms of educational evidence assembled for the purpose of (1) evaluating coursework quality, learning progress, and academic achievement; (2) determining whether students have met learning standards or other academic requirements for courses, grade-level promotion, and graduation; (3) helping students reflect on their academic goals and progress as learners; and (4) creating a lasting archive of academic work products, accomplishments, and other documentation. Advocates of student portfolios argue that compiling, reviewing, and evaluating student work over time can provide a richer, deeper, and more accurate picture of what students have learned and are able to do than more traditional measures— such as standardized tests , quizzes, or final exams—that only measure what students know at a specific point in time.

My Beliefs in Teaching 1. All children can learn They may not learn at the same pace or in the same way. They may not need to learn the same thing at the same time. They may not have the same motivation or the same interests. But they all can learn and they all can learn math. When I tell people I was a math teacher, they often tell me they just don’t have a brain for math. I don’t buy it. We need to rethink the messages we are sending students both in school and at home because I rarely hear anyone say they don’t have a brain for reading. 2. Things need to make sense to students. Learning should be a way for students to make sense of the world around them. In a math classroom, that means taking everyday situations and using math to help make sense of them. When math is disconnected from the world students live in, it is viewed as a series of random calculations that don’t make sense. As a result, students resort to tricks and memorization and then struggle when novel situations are presented. Math needs to make sense to students. It needs to be a way to organize the world around them. 3 . Build on what students know.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
