In these courses we discussed the important roles of

teachers and how crucial it is to build based on the
students within your classroom. Specifically in EDFD
400, we talked about the development of children and

discussed the roles of a teacher in encouraging the
learning of the students in his or her classroom. Its
important for the teacher to be the teacher in a
classroom setting. Thats where the Pedagogical
Triangle comes to play. Forming relationships and
interactions with students and their understanding is
key to education and learning.

In EDFD 460, we discussed the Funds of Knowledge

as a way to meet the needs of each individual within
your classroom. It is crucial for teachers to be aware
of using the knowledge of each student when it comes

to learning. Teachers need to be aware that students
learn in different ways and need to incorporate those
ways into their classroom.
