It has influenced me to use some of the activities, stories, and projects that we did during this course. This course taught us a lot of helpful classroom projects that will have the students reading but also learning a lesson with most of the stories. This has influenced me to be on top of my grading, to manage my time when in the classroom, and to involve the students as much as I can. I plan on implementing all of the books that we did a log over because they are all fun and of the age of students I want to teach. I enjoyed the books that we read now and when I was younger so I feel they will be great to share with my students some day.

As for my professional experience on the knowledge on critical thinking these strategies will help support the thinking process that I can give and help deliver the information to my students in the proper form. This will also help my students with the lectures that I teach in class, to understand the theory, help social skills, and as well as work ethics.

I recognize that self-efficacy, in general, is learners self-constructed judgement about his or her ability to reach goals. Within my lesson I will enhance self-efficacy by fostering an incremental mindset in the classroom. I will make certain that students understand that they can always improve their writing, reading, and comprehension skills. Additionally, I will constantly explain to the students throughout the lesson that the only aspect that matters is if they are completing their best work. Furthermore, I will explain that learning about the lesson and worrying about their own work, as opposed to others’ work, is the only aspect that matters.
Classes in college have been a slight change from classes in high school, which I had expected. The one thing I did not expect was how independent I was going to have to be in my classes. In high school, teachers were extremely helpful in telling you what you needed to do to succeed. I have learned that in college I am going to have to decide what I need to do to succeed. Over the past month, I have slowly been figuring out what I am going to need to do to succeed in each individual class.

The one goal that I set for myself professionally is to be able to apply the theories in my own classroom that I learned throughout my education courses. I think there are a few that are more important than others. Developing your cognitive skills at such a young will be the foundation on which these students will grow upon each year. I believe now that teachers are so stressed and overwhelmed with the common core testing that is given each year that they are not able to take enough time to evaluate their students on a personal level anymore. I remember when in my early school years I had such a great relationship with my teachers.
Visual learning is a lot easier for students so try and have a visual aid available when lecturing and if you don 't have one put key points in writing on the board. A teacher can also adjust a few assignments for students with ADHD. For instance, kids with ADHD have a hard time doing group projects and projects that are stretched out over the course of a week or two. If possible avoid having them do group projects and if unavoidable make sure the student with ADHD knows his or her specific role and responsibilities. If they have a long term project, make sure to break it down into segments.
