Project Based Learning


I use the PBL method as I think it can help students gain a deeper understanding of the subject. When the school does not use the PBL method I adapt it to smaller projects that are developed within a lesson.

Below is a mindmap of the PBL method as I define it in my thesis, after my research.

Practicum - English teacher


I lived one of the most significant experiences of my life, teaching at FundaciĆ³n Hogar Nueva Granada until the sixth grade, the subject was English.

The lesson (three sessions) was daily routines and the unit of study was democracy and peace: coexistence in the classroom.

Below I present the lesson planning and a self-evaluation.

As a teacher, I have a method that guides me when preparing classes. This method helps me to include in the lessons everything that I believe is necessary for the students to achieve a deep understanding of the subject.

Here are some of the lessons I have worked on.

1. Democracy, Rights, and Identity - Decision Making - Different Perspectives

Philosophy of Education - Lessons


Lessons are a guide for students to develop the following as they learn the knowledge and skills related to curricular content:
  • Metacognition through reflection
  • Self knowledge that leads to the creation of beliefs that will help students in their decision making process
  • Self awareness that leads to understanding and control of students' emotions and feelings, and this in turn will lead to empathy
  • Metamemroy that leads to understanding, control and recalling of their memories by students and leads to introspection
  •  World knowledge that will help them in their critical thinking and higher-order skills
  • Experiences management that will help students create an identity and find the meaning of what they are learning
  •  Goal creation abilities that will lead to goals and tasks in which students will learn to measure their progress and manage their effort
  • Strategies creation abilities that will help students with problem solving and which they will be able, with practice, to transfer to other contexts.  
All of the above will help students take control of their own educational process, which reinforces the teacher's role as a guide.

Below is a mindmap of what I include in every lesson.
