Vision for Teaching and Learning

timer Asked: Apr 30th, 2014

Question description

Read Phelps’ article entitled, "Helping Teachers Become Leaders." Compare his statement with at least two vision statements that you find via a Google search.  In the discussion forum, create your own vision statement.  Phelps provides an example in the article. As Phelps (2008) suggests, go beyond mantras such as “all students can learn.”  The heart of your vision should address an educational dilemma in a diverse learning context.  For example, a possible dilemma in the mantra “all students can learn,” is that there are teachers who believe that some students do not learn which is indicative of a “one size fits all” type of teaching.  Your vision statement will address a problem you see in education and describe how you choose to solve that problem.  Reflect on how your beliefs will influence your classroom practices.  As Phelps indicates, “Formulating one’s vision in writing makes its achievement more likely" (p. 120).
