Assignment 2: Reflecting on Courses 1-5

"A teacher completing the Teachers Without Borders Certificate of Teaching Mastery is well prepared for the challenges, opportunities, and innovations of teaching in the new millennium."

  1. Find all of the reasons to believe that the above statement is true. Give supporting examples from your own experience and from things you know in working with your learning circle through this Certificate of Teaching Mastery. (4-5 paragraphs)

    Note:

    Often, we are taught to critically analyze, break down, find the loopholes in the argument, "tear things apart" to get to a place of understanding. This approach of "finding all of the reasons" to support something draws on the same skills of "critical" thinking, but from a different angle, a refreshing one. Enjoy the treasure hunt.
