Blog Categories

I will be using this blog to share and solicit ideas on a wide range of topics primarily related to the categories that appear on the homepage. Because our university MAT candidates will be periodically accessing this blog for information and updates on the teaching certification process and program sequence, it is important that I formally list the 14 educator “approval standards” required by the state for certification as some of my posts will relate to these and allow easier access to information about them relevant to teacher candidates.

These 14 standards (more fully described in WAC 180-78A-270) for making a positive impact on student learning are organized into four general categories (S, T, L, P) as follows:

S: SUBJECT MATTER AND CURRICULUM GOALS
S1: Content driven (use of reading, written and oral communication, and technology).
S2: Aligned with curriculum standards and outcomes (student learning targets and progress to meet them).
S3: Integrated across content areas (subject matter integrating mathematical, scientific, and aesthetic reasoning).
T: KNOWLEDGE OF TEACHING
T1: Informed by standards-based assessment (analysis using formative, summative, and self-assessment).
T2: Intentionally planned (beneficial standards-based planning that is personalized).
T3: Influenced by multiple instructional strategies (addressing ability levels and cultural backgrounds).
T4: Informed by technology (designed to create technologically proficient learners).
L: KNOWLEDGE OF LEARNERS AND THEIR DEVELOPMENT IN SOCIAL CONTEXTS
L1: Learner centered (a variety of culturally responsive, developmentally, and age appropriate strategies).
L2: Classroom/school centered (learning, knowledge, and skills connected to classroom and school communities).
L3: Family/neighborhood centered (informed by collaboration with families and neighborhoods).
L4: Contextual community centered (responsible citizenship for an environmentally sustainable, globally
interconnected, and diverse society).
P: UNDERSTANDING OF TEACHING AS A PROFESSION
P1: Informed by professional responsibilities and policies (a collegial and professional school setting).
P2: Enhanced by reflective, collaborative, professional growth-centered practice (benefiting students).
P3: Informed by legal and ethical responsibilities (students benefit from a safe & respectful learning environment).

    Dear Mr. Scheuerman,
    I am a descendant from the Stang family of Yagodnaya Polyana. My forefathers settled in 1927 from Yagodnaya Polyana to Sibiria. In 1988 our family settled back to germany. By searching in internet i found this page where you wrote something about Yagodnaya Polyana. My question is, if it would be possible to get some information about the Stang family. My great-great-grandfather Alexander Stang was born in Yag.Pol. in 1891. He married Marie-Elisabeth Maiber in 1910. He also had a sister Marie Stang. She married Heinrich Macheleit and they immigrated to the USA in 1924.
    Please give me an information if it would be possible to get some informtaion or not.
    If you would have some costs with it, I will pay them of course.
    Have a nice day, and with best regards
    Andreas Zilke
