The development of the ability to create opportunities for learning:
Education must provide the opportunities for self-fulfillment; it can at best provide a rich and challenging environment for the individual to explore, in his own way.
I am growing in my ability to create opportunities that are responsive to students’ individual learning needs. I have improved upon my ability to identify what the needs are of each student, and have begun differentiating their learning so all students are engaged in the current subject instead of quietly reading. Examples of this can be drawn from my math 6 class. I have moved from one list of multiplication drills to three, allowing exceptional students to be challenged, and students with lower than average ability to practice and see success in their work. I have also begun providing challenge work for my exceptional students who complete their work much quicker than the rest of the students to allow them to explore their limits.
