Technology Professional Development and Projects and English Language Arts Unit Planning
The following downloadable files contain screen shot guides that I have created during my time at Sleepy Hollow as the MS/HS Technology Teaching Assistant. I created these screen shot guides for classes that I worked with, teachers that I taught individually, and to upload to my “tech help” section of my school website. Teachers are able to visit the site and download these materials for future use. I found these guides to be extremely helpful during my own teaching as well as to teachers.
The following links provide sample lesson plans that incorporate educational technologies and media. I created these lesson plans during my graduate program in Educational Technology and Media at Dominican College.
The following links will bring you to my YouTube videos. During my time at Dominican, I took two documentary classes. The following two links will bring you to the documentaries I created during these classes. I learned how to use Final Cut and Premiere in order to create these final videos.
The first video is a short five minute video focusing on the educational issue of cyberbullying. The second video is a ten minute video focusing on one human subject that works in the educational field.
In the Fall of 2010, I began student teaching at Cincinnatus High School. During my brief time there, I taught both 9th grade and 11th grade English.
- I created a short story unit for my 9th grade classes. This unit included an essay writing project. - I created a thematic unit on the play Macbeth for my 11th grade students. In the Winter of 2010, I began teaching at Dryden Middle School. During my time there, I taught 8th grade ELA. - I created a thematic unit on the novel A House on Mango Street. This unit also included grammar lessons, memoir writing, and a final multicultural presentation.
