Task 1: Contextual Factors Chart

This chart is designed to help you understand the many factors that affect teaching and learning. Such factors include your students’ lived experiences and unique learning needs, the community, classroom norms and agreements, and the physical environment in which teaching and learning take place. Understanding these factors as they relate to your teaching will help you determine the instructional strategies and approaches that will support your students’ learning.

In this chart, address the factors listed as they pertain to your teaching assignment.
The subcategories listed with each factor are just suggestions; there may be other subcategories that you would like to address, or there may be a subcategory listed that does not apply to your situation.
