Talking Artifacts

During an all-day orientation to the teacher preparation program, CSUS teacher credential candidates participate in a community building activity in which they share an artifact that represents their past, present, and future. Then, I show the DSC video: Talking Artifacts. This video provides a powerful view of a teacher modeling personal sharing, non-judgmental responses, and the ways in which belonging to a learning community can be initiated.

During an all-day orientation to the teacher preparation program, CSUS teacher credential candidates participate in a community building activity in which they share an artifact that represents their past, present, and future. Then, I show the DSC video: Talking Artifacts. This video provides a powerful view of a teacher in a third-grade Spanish bilingual class modeling personal sharing, non-judgmental responses, and the ways in which belonging to a learning community can be initiated. Not only do the teacher candidates in the credential program leave orientation feeling a sense of their own strong and supportive community, but they also have a clear understanding of why and how they can foster that in their own future classrooms.

Comment from Lana Daly, faculty member in the multiple subjects teacher credential program at the California State University, Sacramento (CSUS).
