ELM 351 Topic 5 Clinical Field Experience C: Engaging Students in the Social Studies Classroom
Active student engagement is key in any classroom as such interaction allows students to immerse themselves in the academic content. Observing student engagement strategies and instructional questions in the social studies classroom helps to guide teachers to develop actively engaging lesson plans.
Allocate at least 4 hours in the field to complete this field experience.
With permission from your mentor teacher, implement the lesson you created in Topic 4 to a small group of students or the entire class. Following your implementation, review the experience with your mentor teacher and receive feedback. Discuss what went well and what could have been done differently.
Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.
In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your experiences implementing a social studies lesson and the feedback received from your mentor teacher. Include the following:
- What did your mentor say went well with the lesson? What areas of development did you discuss with your mentor?
- What strategies engaged the students and met the needs of students? What additional strategies could be put into place?
- What were the students’ responses to the integration of creative arts and technology during instruction?
- How you will apply your experience in your future professional practice.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
