STUDENT WORK SAMPLES

HIGHLIGHTING STUDENT WORK
Whenever possible, I ask for flexibility and creativity in work samples. While I do assign papers from time to time, and accept papers when writing is my students' preferred expression style, or perhaps their comfort zone, I relish the creative products that I have the pleasure to read, watch, listen to, and/or experience.
Some assignments are already published to the web by the students; for these, I have shared links to their sites.
On some assignments, I may ask for a blanket "please indicate whether or not you give permission to post", such as assigned podcasts. Other times, I ask students individually for their permission to share their work on this site- and with a broader audience. Posted work is with the student/author's permission, and they retain the ownership of their work.
Lateral Entry Teachers reflected on the covid-related school shutdown, and made connections to their readings on diversity/equity, learning, and social/emotional needs (in any product of their choice).
Lateral Entry Students submitted a case study of "the one that got away"- a student or situation that they would approach differently now, applying class readings and perspectives (in a creative product of their choice).
BOOK REPORTS: OLD FASHIONED, BUT STILL FUN!
MIDG 4001 (Lateral Entry Teachers) chose their own books out of a list of 10 options (or made a case for their own selection), and then presented their books to their peers.
In this project, students were asked to take their understandings from the entire course and put theory into practice. In a product of their choice, students aligned organization, motivation and the classroom environment (management) to NC Professional Standard #2 with their classroom plans for next year.
