Abstract

During the fall of 2017, I undertook a teaching practicum at Doherty Memorial High School in Worcester, Massachusetts. As a student teacher, I completed my IQP and worked with local youth to develop critical mathematical skills. In this report, I first explore the current educational landscape in Massachusetts. I also demonstrate my growth in the six essential elements of CAP. I include sample assessments, student work and lesson plans to show proficiency in all six areas: high expectations, well-structured lessons, safe learning environment, adjustment to practice, meeting diverse needs and reflective practice. Lastly, I analyze the five classes I taught this fall in depth, with reference to student feedback and techniques I developed to work with specific students.
