Developed in response to a strong interest in the use of Learning Stories in schools, this resource is designed to answer some common questions asked by teachers. In the DVD, teachers and students at a number of schools in Christchurch talk about their ideas and experiences as they explore different ways to assess the Key Competencies inThe New Zealand Curriculum.
This issue of set highlights the importance of deeply knowing one’s students and also knowing oneself as teacher. It stimulates an array of questions about student and teacher identity. Who are your students? How are they connected to the people and places around them? What has real meaning in their lives and how do they go about making meaning? Where are the points of connection between your life and the lives of your students? How do you personally relate to the material you teach? How do you learn more about yourself through your teaching and how might you make this reflexivity explicit to your students? Embedded in these questions is an acknowledgement of the critical relationship between identity and learning.
