Educational Philosophy
I believe in going back in time, remembering
myself as a learner and reflecting upon my
own education.
An educator should be capable of dealing
with any kind of student, having in mind
that one of them are UNIQUE, DIFFERENT,
and SPECIAL.
An educator should be up to date with the
recent approaches and methods of
instruction to maintain an active learning.

Educational Philosophy
Students need to expand their vision of
education and instruction, they need to
comprehend the importance of being an
educated person.
Education should be seen as a blessing and
gift, not as an obligation.
Students should be educated in a safe and
respectful environment.

Expectations
Based on their previous knowledge of
Elements of Fiction, students will write an
alternative ending after analyzing each one of
these elements.
Students must apply an appropriate writing
style to produce the alternative ending.
The alternative ending should fit into context
with the Short Story or Fairy Tale read in class.
Students will make a drawing that convey the
meaning of the alternative ending.

Expectations
Through drawings, students will express their
personal opinion about the text.
Students will use the appropriate language
structure to explain their alternative ending.
Students will explain the main idea of their
alternative ending and reveal important details
such as the Elements of Fiction used to
develop this ending.

Materials needed

White paper
Crayons
Tape
Short Story or Fairy Tale

Steps to follow
Students will read a Short Story or a Fairy Tale
provided by the teacher.
Students will identify the Elements of Fiction
in the text.
Based on the Elements of Fiction, students will
write an alternative ending for the text.
Students must be encourage to feel free and
creative when using their imagination.

Steps to follow
Students will make a drawing about the
alternative ending that will speak for itself.
Peers will analyze the drawing and they will
need to figure out what the ending consist of.
At the end, the drawings will be hung up on
the wall and students will explain with
supporting details (drawing) what their ending
is about.

Hands on Practice!
