There have been many moments throughout this course that I was faced with new knowledge or given ideas to contemplate that I had never considered before. One striking revelation that occurred to me concerning the teaching of new literacy skills to my students is that I am responsible for a great deal more than how students perform on the state test or making sure I have covered through a certain chapter in the textbook. I am responsible for instructing skills students will need for jobs that may not even exist right now. I have learned that inquiry learning is best for developing these skills. And, effective and efficient searching for information is critical as well. The knowledge and experience I gained in this course will influence my teaching practices and keep me moving forward.
