Domain 1: Planning and Preparation
For domain 1 I placed emphasis on demonstrating my knowledge of history and Spanish as well as how I plan my instruction with my students in mind. The first artifact is 1a Demonstrating Knowledge of Content and Pedagogy. For this I chose a midterm from my Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica class I took at the College of Idaho. I was very proud because my professor gave me feedback that my writing was only getting better and my hard work was paying off. This is important because it shows my growth mindset as well as how I am striving to improve. My second artifact is a unit plan I did for the unit I taught on the Ming Dynasty for 7th and 8th Social Studies at Sage International. It demonstrates 1e: Designing Coherent Instruction because it shows how I structure my units and how I teach day to day.
