PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need or want a statement of your teaching philosophy? This tool guides you in the creation of a personal statement that explains your beliefs and values about education. There are 10 general prompts to describe your approach to working with students, parents and others and to clarify your thoughts on issues such as standards, assessment, classroom management and professional development. Another page with 10 more prompts to help you describe how you would handle various situations that are commonly experienced in a school setting is also included.

The pages with these prompts are available in 2 styles -- with and without a center dividing line between the prompts and the spaces for the responses--since some educators may find it easier to use one style instead of the other. Also, to accommodate the different types of binders and folders that educators might use for holding their philosophy of teaching statement, these pages come with the border in 3 different versions. In one version, the border is on all four sides of the pages. In another version, the border is only around three sides of the pages. In the third version, the border is around just two sides of the pages. Choose your own style and version and use the included optional cover page if you wish.

In addition, there are 10 posters (8.5" x 11" in size) with inspirational quotations by famous philosophers and educators about the teaching and learning process. Use these posters, which also include biographical details about the people depicted, to help you formulate your teaching philosophy and then display them on a bulletin board to inspire students. Post your Philosophy of Teaching Statement in your classroom or add it to your professional portfolio to show evaluators or potential employers.

When you finish writing your Philosophy of Teaching Statement, you will have a document that is sure to impress!
