. By doing all the quick quizzes and self-summary tests, it has given me a deeper better understanding of the chapters. It was like a very effective way of studying and reviewing what I had learned. Collaborative learning is something I should continue with because it will slowly help me overcome my fear of speaking in front or to the class and it will help me break out of my shell. It was worth knowing what kind of learner I am because now I know how I should go about things and how to apply my strengths and then how to work on my weaknesses.
1. In the identified video in ATLAS (Case #2454), the mathematics teacher did a great job in making sure he used cultural appropriateness in his learning outcomes. You can tell from the video that the teacher made sure that everything was out in the open. This mathematics teacher used cultural appropriateness by allowing the students to work in groups to help each other with the math problems. This allows the students to be productive with students of a different culture.
Above all, homework allows the students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, and self-esteem. “The act of completing homework has benefits in terms of developing good habits in students.” This shows that, students are gaining many skills from homework. This also shows that, homework isn’t a waste of time and students do benefit from homework. “Homework also teaches students how to problem solve, think independently, and build an understanding and interest for the issues in our society.” This shows that, homework can allow students to gain independence and not rely on someone to
I always do my homework, and have everything submitted on time. I am always very respectful of my classmates and teachers, and have very good social skills. However, I also have weaknesses to go along with my strengths. There are many areas I need to improve in, and I am willing to put the effort into making these things strengths. I need to work on studying for tests and quizzes, for short periods of time each day, leading up to them.
I formed this group because Alyssa and I were both struggling and I know Porter is great at math so I reached out to him to help us and study together. The group has been helpful because a lot of my questions can be answered by my friends. The dynamic is great because none of us are afraid to sound dumb with questions, so we are all very open and open to helping. We haven’t strictly followed the guidelines in the hand out being that we feel that the way the study group naturally works is great for us and our own learning styles. Overall, I’m happy to have my study group to help me with a class that is harder than any class I have ever
Invitation skills include good eye contact, soft smiles, and appearing open to the client. I notice also that in one of my triads, the counselor assigned the client a homework assignment. This is considered a goal setting skill. I will be working on that because it is an excellent idea to keep the client thinking about what they need to do to improve. In all of my triads, we were all motivational and helpful to one another.
When I think about myself, as a math learner one thing that I know is very important is low stress. Growing up during Elementary school, Middle school and high school I always enjoyed math and found it to be a very interesting and relaxing subject. Once I began taking AP Calculus during my senior year of high school I saw my stress level start to raise and my retention of information and my engagement with understanding the material versus just getting the right answer drop. I became fixated with having the right answers even if I did not understand how the math worked. This is a sad reality for many high school math students they are obsessed with the right answer.
My teacher makes the class a whole lot easier. She is a great teacher, and she explains and works out the problems until we understand them. Ms. Lawson knows exactly what she is doing, and she could probably solve any math problem you gave her. She is a great math teacher, and she is great and what she does. It all depends on the person, whether the class is easy or hard.
Another contributing factor to academic achievement is teachers as they play a significant role in teaching and providing a healthy learning environment for children. Teachers who are biased and treat children differently based off of ethnicity are contributing to the achievement gap majorly. Parents are another contributing factor to academic achievement as they play a significant role in supporting and encouraging their children. Lastly, time is also very meaningful for academic achievement as children do need the time to do homework and
It is difficult to teach a topic if students cannot it relate to their everyday lives. Students and teachers both need to be motivated so learning can be effective and worthwhile. Finding students strengths and weaknesses can help us as teachers find ways to use different learning approaches to help our students succeed. Overall, growing up literacy was very much imbedded into my everyday life with the help of my grandfather. Today I still do a lot of reading but not as much as before do to working and schoolwork load.
