Running Head: Reflection Artifacts Domain E

Abstract
Based on a Professional Development Portfolio this assignment is a reflection of the artifacts
developed for this domain. Three Artifacts have been established along with a reflection as to the
rationale and value of selecting specific artifacts. Domain E. TPE 10: Instructional Time, TPE
11: Social Environment,

Running Head: Reflection Artifacts Domain E

According to Marzano (2003) Well managed classrooms provide an environment in


which teaching and learning can flourish (p1). And the person responsible for achieving this is
the teacher. For this domain I incorporated an artifact that illustrates tools utilized in a classroom
to manage discipline problems. A discipline problem is one that interferes with the teaching act,
interferes with the rights of others to learn, creates a psychologically and physically unsafe
learning environment and destroys property (Levin & Nolan, Unit1 Power point presentation.
2000). With this definition I found useful the steps to follow in making the right interventions
when expectations and valuable time is lost to disruptive behavior. For example modeling a
calm, respectful manner, gaining the students respect and working collaborative to solve a
problem. Students need incentives, so when a student is still unwilling to follow behavior
guidelines it necessary to set them in reaching this goals and reward them when reaching this
goals.
The second artifact was chosen to illustrate how I communicate weekly with parents
showing accomplishes as well as misbehaviors. So parents can see the progress their child is
doing, working with parents to support them, either in class as volunteers or at home helping
with reading and homework. It is very important that all schools, teachers and staff have a
program that establish and reinforces consequences for specific types of misbehavior.
Establishing rules and procedures to many actions and behaviors throughout the school and
classroom that will protect students, teachers and staff. As Marzano (2009) states When teachers
in a school exhibit consistent behavior relative to classroom management, it communicates a
very powerful message to students, their parents and guardians. For this reason, it requires that
all teachers and staff employ the behaviors established by the program.

The third artifact is an article review. This article states that effective instructional
strategies and good classroom curriculum design are built on the foundation of effective
classroom management. As every teacher wants to maximize instruction and learning time with
less interruptions. It also provides a brief description of the Barb Coloroso Video Winning at
teaching Without beating your kids This is a great approach since the teacher takes the time
to teach her students how to think, rather than what to think.
Overall reflecting on this domain I have come to understand how powerful is to have
great management skills in a classroom creating well healthy a social environment where
teaching and learning can flouris, as well as to good communication with parents.
