Goulet, John A.


For the Winter and Spring terms of 2014, I completed a Teaching Practicum IQP at Forest Grove Middle School in Worcester, Massachusetts. In preparation I registered and completed a Teacher Preparation Course at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and wrote a research paper. While at Forest Grove, I observed and then taught Life Science for four Eighth grade classes with the goal of learning and mastering the 5 Professional Standards: Plans Curriculum, Delivers Effective Instruction, Manages Classroom Climate, Promotes Equity, and Meets Professional Responsibilities. This paper will demonstrate that I have achieved competence in all 5 Professional Standards.
