About Theresa

I have 3 years of teaching experience with grades 6-12. I taught middle grades science, as well as biology, anatomy, chemistry, and physics. I have a biology degree from Shorter University. My role is a facilitator of instruction. Guided discovery learning involves the instructional approach of direct instruction, while encouraged students to construct their own knowledge. The learner is engaged with hands-on activities as well as receives information from the teacher. I believe the guided discovery learning approach is beneficial for student achievement.

Teaching in this manner provided me with the insight that student were internally motivated to participate in the activity and were much more engaged than they would have been with just a lecture. The students were learning, without being forced to learn and had a more enjoyable learning experience. This teaching method was pre-organized by the teacher, yet had the learner understand on their own.

Before starting a lesson, I believe it is important for the students to demonstrate their prior knowledge in order to know what they are to achieve. A pretest and post-tests is a great way to assess and track student achievement. Formative assessments that I have used in my classroom are Think-Pair-Share, Exit Tickets, Observations, Discussion, Task Orientated Project, and One-on-One Instruction. I would like to incorporate an interactive learning journal as another way to track student achievement.

I get excited when students construct their knowledge and learn about the things about the world and nature!
