This has been cemented into the brains of every school boy and girl from early on and yet still, it has become prevalent to relinquish ones desire to be educated so one may conform to the habits of the culture around them. The corruption of mankind is the concept that being intelligent makes you arrogant and off-putting when in reality, becoming literate and informed can open more doors and present more opportunities than every before! In Gerald Graff’s, “Disliking Books”, Graff describes his academic and intellectual upcoming through his experience from literature in school. Despite his environment and the culture around him, Graff found clarity in class discussion and fascination in literature. Slowly, with the guidance of his father and his personal drive to rise above the conformity around him, Graff was able to overcome the corruption around him and find new meaning in being knowledgeable; proving to the world and himself that with the right mindset and determination, you can rise Per aspera ad astra (from the mud to the
From the class I observed I noticed that the teacher often used repetition as the way to get the students to learn and get the correct answer. She did not simply tell the student what was wrong or the correct answer when they were wrong, she simply just said that is not the correct answer try again. This taught the students that the correct answer will not always be given to them right away, that they must work until they get it themselves. This is a good example of enculturation in the classroom. The students are learning from the repetition of correcting the problem.
At the end of the week the student could take the chart results home to share with the parent/guardians. Giving the student self-monitoring charts will encourage the student to be more aware of taking responsibility for their future while establishing goals and creating progression charts. It is important for the teacher to reach out to his peers to find solutions to helping his/her student(s) learn in their own way to be more
Schedules help students know what’s ahead. Picture schedules are even more powerful because they help a student visualize the actions. • Use concrete language: the teacher always have concrete representation when teaching Ashley because of her inability to comprehend when only using words. Concrete representations help Ashley to understand the concept of what is being taught and it also is an aid for her to show what she understood from lesson. •
I agree with this because everyone will react differently to a setback, especially if they already react differently to education. Dweck explains this in better detail when she says, “… the belief that intelligence is fixed dampened the students’ motivation to learn…and made them want to quit after a setback”. She also shows us the other side, when intelligence is thought to be developed, students are exposed to a passion for learning and are more determined with presented with a
This would allow my students to interview the senior of what made them successful in the areas of academics, personal life, and hobbies. My students would then take what they learn from their mentor and create a drawing of what they would need to be
Since the tests were composed of a multiple-choice question component in addition to a short essay, I was able to reinforce my past knowledge of concepts and course material when deciding if the essay answers were accurate. Also, I was able to strengthen my organizational skills when managing my time between my additional classes, volunteer work, and my teaching assistant responsibilities. My teaching assistant experience has made me become more critical of myself as a student. I am more conscious of the impact of arriving late to class on the classroom environment. Therefore, I now make an extra effort to arrive at class on time.
During this conference, we would look for similarities and differences with regards to the questions. This would give us time to discuss some possible new instructional strategies, classroom management ideas, or professional development opportunities with each other. Hopefully, this would be a non-threatening change for some great and productive dialogue to take place. The survey would let the teacher see how others view them as an educator. I’m sure if anyone of the stakeholders had a personal “issue” with a teacher that it would be obvious during the examination of the survey.
I am taking away a lot of new information from my observations and time I have spent with the ELL students. I witnessed the struggled that these students sometimes have to deal with something as simple as copying a sentences off the board and keeping up with the rest of the class. It takes them twice as long, because they have to look at each word and each word multiple times to copy it correctly. I learned how much more work it is to teach ELL students and how much more effort you as a teacher have to put into these students, but also how much more effort the students themselves have to put into their work. I learned you have to be patient and calm with ELL students, because they need that from their educators, ELL students need to surround
This quickly deboogles the minds of the students in the classroom and unravels their thoughts to grasp for an answer. The author uses plot devices and a common setting, along with inputs from other characters, to create a story both argumentative and fulfilling, while oftenly restating the theme that faith is viewed differently by many. The story begins in exposition by starting off with a question form the teacher. This
Lanza during this class period was the modeling method. That is, since the classes were preparing for the PARCC exam, Mrs. Lanza had her students complete PCRs and then graded them as a group according to PARCC standards. This allowed students to see just how grades are determined for PCRs and why they are given the grades they receive, and encouraged students to think like a PARCC test grader. As a result of this teaching by modeling, students were able to see both good and bad responses and why they are considered as such. This allowed students to walk out of class having a better idea of how they will be graded on the PARCC and how they can work to specifically improve their writing
