The artifacts I have chosen for creating a classroom environment represent my own professionalism as an educator, establishing a culture for learning, and managing student behavior. The first artifact is an assessment conducted by my college adviser. In this assessment, my adviser noted that I had good rapport with students, that I was able to redirect distracted students, and work with those who are a noted discipline problem. The second artifact is a photo of the front of my classroom for about three weeks. During our unit on protists, bacteria, viruses, and fungi I brought in every day items that represented each of these organisms. The insulin pen box, yogurt container, and jar of yeast are just a few of the examples I used to demonstrate how we experience these organisms in our daily lives. Lastly, I included a student artifact that represents how I manage behavior during video instruction. To introduce the bacteria unit, I showed a ten minute video clip. Prior to watching, I asked students to create a know, learned, learned chart. While the information they wrote down was minimal, it kept them engaged for the entire clip because they listened for specific pieces of information. I also collected these charts and gave a completion grade so students would have more of an incentive to document information from the video.
