Lesson planning is a map to student learning, the resources teachers use influence student learning. For this reason, it is important to understand how to evaluate instructional material. There are many things to consider when choosing material resources this paper will examine the importance of the design, procedures, clarity, and efficiency when choosing lesson plans. When choosing learning resources teachers need to ensure that all students feel valued, and supported regardless of their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It is also important that materials chosen will help all students succeed in school regardless of their abilities, backgrounds, cultures, or linguistic differences.
The essential goal of education is to give children the knowledge and means to entire the workforce and achieve success (Carmichael, 2009). It is important as teachers that we welcome the diverse needs of all students. While it is fundamental that teachers are well-informed on the content they are teaching and are responsible to guide student learning, there is much more to emerging student learning. To develop students’ education, schools should provide a structure of classroom communities conductive to learning. School environments must be respectful, caring, stable, and stimulating atmospheres in order to enhance the learning environment.
It is important to note that the use of technology in the classroom can foster learning and improve student’s critical and reflective thinking skills. Teachers and administrators should select materials and technology that are developmentally appropriate and designed to engage the interest in learning. An effective leader has a vision of learning and allows students to set individual goals and plans to reach these goals; the use of technology can increase students’ success. Since the educational reform of No Child Left Behind, educators have struggled to meet the learning standards set by their state and federal government. High academic standards in all core curriculum areas and accountability through assessment are an important aspect in the educational arena.

Creating a variety of questions is also vital to meet the needs of all of the students learning styles. I have learned many skills from creating a curriculum-based assessment that I would not have learned without this experience. Writing objectives, creating a test with different types of questions, grading a test, calculating and analyzing a test will help me use informal assessments My experience will allow me to create a curriculum-based assessment in the future to help determine the instructional needs of my students.

It is important to decide how to teach students in a manner that is useful in order to find ways to better improve the quality of education in the classroom both in the present and the future. One of the areas or practice that I think needs researching includes obtaining reliable and valid predictors of future student achievement which reflects an accurate measure of change over time. With this, I can revise my lesson plans and classroom curriculum accordingly and move along with student achievement as it progresses locally as well as across the country. I can also study the revisions made to standards and practices as well as study new legislation which directly affects student performance (such as revisions to laws like No Child Left Behind).
CTE courses were originally built to as a pathway to prepare students for industry endorsed certifications. ICTs have become a valuable tool to enhance teaching and learning in all schools. For teachers ICT is a professional resource, a mode of classroom delivery, and a source of valid and valuable text types. For students, ICT provides opportunities to communicate more effectively and to develop literacy skills. Because of its interactive and dynamic nature, ICT has the potential to meet the needs of individual students by providing opportunities to direct their learning and to pursue information, or complete tasks, in ways which meet their own interests and needs.

I should have the ability to teach different student in many learning plans. In addition to be an affective teacher, my learning would lead to more positive student achievement. In classroom, I should work hard to meet my student’s need.
Mission and Vision Statement Mission Statement: As an educator I will provide for students the opportunity to make a positive difference in their lives to help them accomplish unexpected goals. I will enhance learning to support my students in achieving their highest potential by integrating technology into the curriculum. I will integrate conceptual technology learning techniques that will implement concrete knowledge of technology that will emphasize mastery of understanding. Through committed support from educators, faculty, staff, parents, and the community, I will advance learning to support my students. This will allow students to become confident, creative, motivated, technology-ready students.
This reflection has identified some teaching and learning strategies that I will employ as a new teacher to ensure that I am successfully responding to the needs of all my students. It has also indicated that there will be both difficulties and advantages to curricula, instruction and assessment adaptations. I have concluded, however, that the advantages that my students will receive from this inclusive design will far out way the difficulties that I might face.
By implementing the use of technology to assist with increasing and meeting students’ literacy needs you are ensuring progression in both literacy and learning. Educators can improve the way they implement technology to increase literacy and learning within their classrooms through the use of professional learning communities and other online resources. Technology can open up doors to more learning within the classroom that might not otherwise be achieved. Proper use can ensure students have the key literacy and learning tools to go further and thus will able to achieve more within today’s society and “…be forever free” (Frederick Douglas).
