This course has helped me to organize my thinking, not only for my capstone, but as an educator and person.
The Clark readings helped me to map out how to make my work in Touro useful to my fellow educators. Before this course, I was just focused on creating a capstone around differentiated instruction, but did not have a vision of what the purpose of it would be. Being an educator who appreciates practical application, the Clark readings inspired me to create a map for how educators could create more dynamic differentiated instruction, which is easier to execute.
This course has helped me to create driving inspiration questions: "What do teachers need to know?" (TPACK) and "How can I be a bridge for my students?" (Dervin). These questions will be my focal point as I move into the Capstone course.
