					Artifact: Sociology of Education Reflective Assignment

Date: October 2010

This artifact is placed in the awareness of self outcomes section because it helps reminds me of
how I fit in society and how I take things for granted. I wrote this assignment on the basis to
uncover hidden privileges I as well as others, receive by being who they are. Reminding myself
of privileges everyone receives, many unknowingly and subtle, can help me relate to the students
I will teach.

PGT: To reflect monthly to ensure I am treating all my students appropriately.
Artifact: Professional Development Certificate for Yoga

Date: February, 2011

opened my eyes to the variety of benefits of yoga in everyday life. I am also more aware of how
to incorporate yoga in the classroom.

PGT: To find more resources on yoga related activities for classroom and physical
education classes.
Artifact: MAX Program Service Learning Certificate

Date: March, 2010

they have the same form of disability because they fall on a spectrum. I also learned procedures
and guidelines for working with individuals with disabilities.

PGT: To find resources and personal help for students with disabilities in my classes.

areas where they can improve. This also allows me to aid them in setting new personal goals.

goals.

experience in my classes to promote outside classroom learning.

PGT: To engage students at least once in an outside of school activity related to the
curriculum each year.
Artifact: Get Active Program

Date: October, 2010

I believe programs such as this are important as a teacher because you get to truly “see” the
students you are working with. Different aspects of students lives become open outside of the
classroom so you can get to know them better.

PGT: To volunteer at a current similar project in a school.
Artifact: Positive Space Training Certificate

Date: November, 2010

Positive space training is crucial to getting to feel comfortable with all students. I have learned
much from this program and it largely helped me break misconceptions about the LGBTQ.

Artifact: Afterschool Programs

Date: October, 2010

This session influenced my resourcefulness to be able to create an afterschool program. I believe
these types of programs are essential to extra-curricular learning that can alter student’s
behaviors and beliefs.

techniques and tried and true principles. Being a certified personal trainer has helped me work
with individuals of diverse needs and become competent in helping these individuals reach their
needs.

program at my school.

of activities are important to create a safe learning environment and to create a common respect
amongst all students.
