An expository essay is a genre of writing which tends to explain, illustrate, clarify, or explicate something in a way that it becomes clear for readers. Formulating your own Philosophy of Education will help you become a better teacher and hopefully get the job you want in the future. In order to begin to formulate this important philosophy, it is important to do some research and some critical thinking. To begin your thought process, imagine you are interviewing for a job you really want and they ask you the following questions:
Why do you want to become a teacher?
What is your philosophy of Education?
What can you bring to this school district?
Concepts Candidates for inclusion in your essay:
Assessment of Student Learning
Challenges of First Year Teachers
Goodness of Fit
Technology in the Classroom
Revising School Work
