EDUC 305 Educational Philosophy for Teachers
Reflect on your performance in this class, at your job, in your home or ministry. How have you displayed the following dispositions: Social Responsibility, Commitment/Work Ethic, Reflection, Integrity, and Professionalism?
The candidate will write five brief essays (no more than 100 words each) describing how they have demonstrated or practiced each of the School of Education SCRIP dispositions (Social Responsibility, Commitment/Work Ethic, Reflection, Integrity, and Professionalism) in their own personal and professional life. If you have questions about the definitions, please see the Dispositions below.
Example responses are given below:
“I have shown commitment and work ethic by completing all assignments in this course to the best of my ability. I have a strong commitment to KDP so I have attended all chapter meetings and worked extra hours at the book fair. Also, my host teacher at Linkhorne Elementary wanted me to help direct a play so I spent several nights a week for 3 weeks assisting her with play practice. The extra hours I spent helping with play practice were well beyond the minimum number of hours I needed for my practicum.”
“I have shown integrity in this course by completing independent assignments by myself. In instances that I have used the work of others, I have properly cited this. If I was absent or tardy, I self-reported these instances to my professor. I have taken notes and participated in class discussions rather than being involved in off task behaviors.”
