Pedagogy

Pedagogy

Being a student in education, I have come to hear this word often. I have come to know it to mean the way you think/want to teach. It is the art or craft of teaching. I believe it to be a cross between beliefs, values and style. Everyone is different so pedagogy differs from every individual. My pedagogy is constantly changing because I am growing as a student teacher. My pedagogy may not stop changing until I retire because I will have different groups of students with different needs so I may need to tweak my pedagogy to meet there needs.

P..P..P……Pedagogy! At first it triggers the thought of children or feet. Feet because foot in French is Pied and then I think of pediatrics which is the branch of medicine that deals with the medical care of children (the ward my mom used to work in).

  1. Yes and Yes…good thinking with you here…we are always changing part of our teacher identity. If we quit growing…then we lose that magic in the classroom spaces that sustains us.

    i love the image…keep it rolling.
