Compare your experiences and beliefs of an exemplary teacher

A critical aspect of this assignment is comparison. Ensure that you compare your experiences, beliefs and reflections by identifying the similarities and differences with the beliefs held by others (ie, peers/personal network) and the reasoning for these similarities and differences.

Use academic and scholarly sources as references to support your comparisons and the explanations that you present. It is important that you read the relevant literature before you discuss the implications of your reflections and comparisons in terms of your own professional teaching practice and professional identity.

This section requires references tosupport your discussion. You will need to look at two different bodies of literature; you will need to include references on teaching practice, and also references on professional identity. Discuss a range of implications for your teaching practice including how you will teach. Additionally, how you will communicate with your students and their families. Implications for professional identity will focus on how you understand your role as a teacher in the classroom, school, and community.

Then you might ask them to tell you about what the teacher was like. Also, what things did this teacher do in the classroom that others were not doing or that set them apart from others. You should also have some questions around what they believe high quality or exemplary teachers are. Teachers who do what, teachers who have what sort of personal qualities, teachers who interaction with students how…..
