Progressive Survey #1
1. If you could teach any other subject, what would you teach?
Let's throw out what I'm currently qualified to teach. With the proper motivation, I could get qualified to teach just about anything, as long as I take the time to get educated in it! So let's think outside the box here!
Able to teach anything other than a core English class, I would love to teach Art History or Journalism. Art History is another love of mine, and I would love to be able to continue to explore that subject through teaching it. I would definitely go back to my own beloved AP Art History teacher and beg that he let me borrow his wisdom & resources.
Journalism is another option, as I would love to engage students in the practicality of writing, as well as the skills of questioning. Though I know it would be extremely stressful, I'd like to take on the challenge of a school paper. I guess technically journalism could fall under my current subject, although technically I don't have any specific training or background in it.
Since I've had some downtime to think about what I want to do next in my career, I did actually poke into how I could get certified to teach AP Art History. Ah, dreams. One day, maybe?
Your turn! If you could teach any other subject, what would you teach?
