Study Skills

At the University of Phoenix in Michigan I have taught courses in Curriculum and Instruction. I believe my job, as instructor is to develop the students’ competence in communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and information utilization. I must provide instruction that bridges the gap between theory and practice, by being prepared and sharing skills that I have acquired teaching in my profession. Good interpersonal rapport is evidenced when I acknowledge students’ feelings about matters of class assignments, activities, or policy, and encourage students to ask questions and/or express their personal viewpoints. Effective facilitation occurs when I encourage students to be creative and independent in dealing with the subject material to formulate their own views. As a result, students not only know what I expect of them, but also feel more responsibility to go beyond that level of performance.
I structure my activities for student involvement. I assist them by asking questions and encouraging them to contribute their ideas rather than by lecturing to them. I continually build on student responses so that the entire class is being encouraged to use their critical thinking skills to evaluate and analyze the information.
A key outcome for all students is to improve critical thinking abilities. In order to accomplish this important outcome, I use the Socratic Method of Inquiry. The Socratic Method requires teachers to focus their facilitation on asking open-ended questions that will lead students to find better alternatives or approaches, such as “What else could you have considered? What evidence might be included to support your conclusion?” As a coach and mentor, I clearly communicate to students my belief that they will be successful. I help them develop the self-confidence they need to complete a class.

Vocabulary

Listed below are objectives I use when teaching communication writing classes. Vocabulary is an important part of these classes.

1. Students will acquire academic skills by engaging in reading and writing as a holistic process.
2. Students will apply reading and writing as processes: working with higher level reading material and producing academic writing.
3. Students will demonstrate knowledge of the conventions of the English Language, develop strategies for locating and correcting their own errors in writing, demonstrate literacy skills appropriate for different audiences and purposes, and use computer technology as a literacy tool.
4. Students will learn independently and collaboratively.
5. Students will take and give feedback.
6. Students will display critical and reflective thinking and responding.

By following these steps, I create comprehensive and congruent facilitation, and I can easily observe students’ success in meeting objectives. Furthermore, if students do not meet the criteria of the assessments, I can design and utilize different methods by which to approach the corresponding objectives. In this process, all students are encouraged and enabled to succeed.
