Those that can't do . . . teach.

Actually, I can usually "do", because otherwise I wouldn't be able to teach it to my students. I recently completed work towards an M.S.Ed. and PA certification to teach English at the secondary level (grades 7-12). I did my student teaching at University City High School in Philadelphia. These are some images from my classroom.

While at University City, I taught 9th-grade English from September through April and 12th grade English from January through April (2001-2002 school year). I leaned towards constructivist theory, as I believe it allowed the students to make more sense and meaning from what they were learning.

I tried some online activities with them, too. As we were reading George Orwell's Animal Farm, they did a WebQuest that I created for their class. Overall, I was extremely pleased with the results.
