Wisniewski, Benedikt; Zierer, Klaus – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2019

This narrative considers how well equipped today's teacher education students and faculty are to meet the demands of the new Common Core State Standards.

Enright, Kerry Anne – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2012
In today's ethnically and linguistically diverse classrooms, teachers need a notion of "relevant" that allows students from vastly different backgrounds to make personal purposeful connections with their academic work. To make instruction relevant, the author suggests that it has to be meaningful and engaging to a broad range of students.…

Duncan, Sarah Parks – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2010
Each year, teachers are overwhelmed with too much to cover and an endless list of things to accomplish between the first bell and the final report card. In addition to helping students master mandated curriculum and prep for standardized tests, there seems to be a never-ending stream of surprise fire drills and last-minute assemblies that rob…

Putman, Michael – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2009
The idea of believing in oneself is a construct that goes by several names: (1) self-efficacy; (2) self-concept; and (3) self-esteem. How well a person thinks he or she will do in the completion of a task plays a significant role in how well that person will actually do. Positive self-beliefs have been linked to many benefits, including increased…

Ayers, William – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2009
Education in a democracy is geared toward and powered by a particularly precious and fragile ideal, which can be simply stated: every human being is of infinite and incalculable value; each a unique intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual, moral, and creative force; each person is born free and equal in dignity and rights; each endowed with…

Malikow, Max – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2006
Teaching in the affective domain, or "domain of emotional response," challenges teachers to focus objectives on their students' attitudes and feelings (Woolfolk 2003). Affective domain teaching occurs simultaneously with teaching in the cognitive domain, never in lieu of it. In this essay, the acronym CRIER (complaining, responding, initiating,…

Noddings, Nel – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2004
Most teachers have been good students. Some students are fast learners and attain the required knowledge and skills easily; others are obedient, hard workers. In either case, teachers are likely to believe that if students really try, they will do well. Listening to students over many years, the author has learned that this is probably not true.…
