Blog Post #10

I was the type of math student who got fairly good grades but had to work really hard to get them. In my grade 11 year I probably spent 70% of my lunch hours getting extra help so I could maintain my good grades. I think that there will always be a variety of students in math classes, students who math comes easy to and they love it and students would rather be doing literally anything else then math. When…

Blog Post #9: Biases and Upbringing

When I think back on my education both my elementary experience and high school experience were similar in the fact that I was exposed to many different cultures, I always had many students in my classes who game from other cultures such as First Nation, Pilipino, Asian and so on. I did attend catholic school which played a big part in my life. I do not practice religion as often now that I am out of school, but I still…

Citizenship

Citizenship

I have never heard of the three different kinds of citizenship before doing this week assigned tasks, I thought it was very interesting to look back and group my teachers based on the three different characteristics. Going through elementary school the most prominent type of citizen was “ the Personally Responsible Citizen”  this type of citizen shows characteristics of integrity and does a lot for their community. For example, donating blood, or giving food to food Drives. I believe that this…

The Purpose of Treaty Education

The Purpose of Treaty Education

If I was put in this position, I would reply somewhere along the lines of… Dear Intern,  This is a issue that is very prevalent in the Canadian education system but I am sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time. I personally almost always had treaty ed implemented into my classrooms growing up however, through my secondary education I have meant several people who did not have that opportunity, and the idea of treaty ed is…

Curriculum Development

Curriculum Development

In Levin’s article “Curriculum Policy and the Politics of what should be learned in schools” it explains the development of school curriculum. There was a large emphasise on policies, polices conduct everything that has to do with aspects of education. Education is very political which I was always aware of, but I was still shocked at the extent of just how political education is even though many decisions are made with little public knowledge or attention. The government brings many…

Preparing Teachers for a Crisis a Sample Lesson.

Preparing Teachers for a Crisis a Sample Lesson.

In the article “Preparing Teachers for Crisis a Sample Lesson” by Kumashiro it talks about different types of students, learning styles and learning standards. He examines teachers and argues that when teaching we should be considerate of anti-oppressive education and working through student crisis. This article was very eye opening and got me thinking about certain ideas that I have never considered before.  Growing up in elementary school you could always tell who the “good” and who the “bad” students…

Assignment 1: Dominant Narratives, Subjugated Knowledges, and the Righting of the story of Disability in K-12 Curricula.

Assignment 1: Dominant Narratives, Subjugated Knowledges, and the Righting of the story of Disability in K-12 Curricula.

As I began looking through scholars and topics my interest first peaked at Death/Ghosts in the curriculum. When I started to look into this topic there were not a lot of articles to choose from and they seemed to lack interest and did not argue points that I thought they would, so I turned my focus to disability in the curriculum. There were multiple articles that touched on many different views around disability. I found an article that stood out…

When I look back on my education the Tyler Rationale is quite prominent. After reading the article Curriculum Theory and practice and talking about the curriculum and the four different ways to look at it I was able to reflect on how my teachers went about the curriculum and how some decided to use different tactics. In my high school teachers taught many different subjects there was not always just one teacher for math. When I was taking Pre-calculus 20, I was…
