All children need instruction; modelling, explaining, and demonstrating are very important teaching activities if children are to learn to read and write. Teaching assistant can model the reading and writing by engaging in them while children observe; reading aloud to children, which provides a model of how reading sounds and how stories go. Reading aloud is a way to model fluent reading. Teaching assistant can discuss books and stories while modelling the thinking process leading to understanding. Teaching assistant talks through the process step-by-step to show the children how things are done, for example, how to make, confirm or change predictions.
The idea is to relate The Outsiders to students’ lives for students to become more engaged in the reading and maintain the novel’s events by relating events, characters, etc. to students’ lives. IPTS 1C relates to this performance activity by how the competent teacher relates students’ lives and development into a lesson. I learned prior knowledge and incorporating students’ lives into a lesson greatly impacts student learning. Performance Activity 23: Observe and record how the teacher manages the classroom. What
Observation 3 consisted of observing an English 10 class reviewing chapters 13 and 14 of To Kill a Mocking Bird. The observation lasted 9 minutes where I observed the administering of reading quiz on the chapters at hand. The students were tasked with reading the appropriate chapters prior to the day’s class. The instructional decision to quiz students on their reading is important as it provides the means to hold students accountable. As a supervisor, I learned teachers and various school staff must be given the resources or means to carry out their professional duties, but like students in the classroom, accountability must be ensured.
The evaluation was divided into two broad categories Scholastic that looked at the areas which were subject specific and Co-Scholastic that included activities that were co-curricular like life skills, attitudes and values. The Scholastic evaluations was divided into Summative assessment to help analyse how much the students have learned after teaching through various medium like multiple choice questions, long and short answers , match the following , fill in the blanks and understanding diagrams in science . and Formative assessment to evaluate the students everyday learning situations during teaching to help identify gaps to help provide feedback to teachers to take remedial action which was done through various tools like observation, document analysis ,peer reviews ,self-assessment ,tests and the various techniques used were like projects ,assignments , activities , making of posters ,charts ,collages ,group discussions and seminars whereas the life skills looked at enhancing the thinking, social and emotional skills . The summative assessment are to assess skills like teamwork ,leadership skills , memory and understanding along with
This is a case study of one after-school program on young bilingual students’ language and literacy learning using preservice teachers. This after school program is a one-on-one tutoring program in which preservice teachers in cohorts from local universities work with children to assist in the development of literacy to improve reading. The study addresses the questions of what are preservice teachers’ understanding of the purposes, goals, and implementation methods of strategy instruction for struggling bilingual young readers and how effective do preservice teachers perceive their instruction of literacy strategies to be with struggling elementary students? Qualitative analysis was utilizing to discover findings that frontloading teachers with knowledge of and attention to expanded and extended interactive opportunities allowed for increased literacy for bilingual students. The results included themes in teachers’ changing approaches toward revealed statically significant positive changes in students’ literacy
It can take two to four years for an ELL to create conversational capability and another three to four years to create scholarly capability (Cummings J. 2000). As a teacher I will help children learn and use aspects of language associated with the academic discourse of the various school subject to ensure that there is time and practice. There is nothing teachers can do to rush English acquisition, but we can find many avenues to provide ways to opportunities to practice English in the classroom. If they are structured to support student-to-student or group interaction, ELLs are required to use English language to explain concepts and contribute to the work. This gives teachers an opportunity to gauge what the student has learned, and it also helps the student to demonstrate his/her progress in English language development.
The key points from this week’s text reading discussed issues that special educations teachers need to know relating to vocabulary, law and identification of intellectual disabilities (ID). We learned about how ID characteristics impact education, social attitudes and academic needs of students, their families and the communities they live. The reading from the assigned from our textbook and the websites gave my an excellent base understanding of intellectual disabilities. We learned from our assigned reading and research that IDEA defines Intellectual Disability (ID) as noted in the NICHY Disability Fact #8 found on the Parent Center Hub website as the following (January 2011).
Oral Language is when the language is spoken to express ideas, thoughts and even emotion. Before a child learns to read, the child begins to speak and connect through saying the words aloud. With that in mind, a child can identify and connect the words on the page to the picture that appears through their mind base on the concept of oral language. Oral language goes beyond the classroom walls because it starts from the words, saying and ideas that they’ve personally heard and experienced through their life. Therefore, many educators test their students on their Oral Language abilities, and Oral Language is comprised of Phonology, Semantics, Grammar, Morphology, Pragmatics, and Discourse.
The Lexile Framework for Reading by Metametrix provides quantitative assessment of both students ' reading levels and texts ' complexity. Students receive a Lexile measure from certain reading tests. Books and other texts receive a Lexile measure from a software tool, the Lexile Analyzer, which evaluates word frequency and sentence length. Many schools use Lexile measures to assess students ' reading levels and match students with appropriately rigorous reading material. I have no issue with assessing
Response to Lewisetta In practice, educators use many terms or labels to discuss children and families who live in poverty. Gloria Rodriguez and James Fabionar (2010) assert that the many terms we use should serve "as a reminder of how often we are called on in education to talk about -- but not necessarily to" -- our students and their families who live with low incomes (p. 64). As educators, we must be sensitive to the effects of poverty on our students' state of mind and ensure that we separate their developing sense of self from their living conditions. As a starting point, we must be extremely careful how we talk about children who live in poverty.

My annotated bibliography consists of 4 sources related to the Child Development major. Child development degree programs appeal to students who wish to pursue careers that make a difference in the lives of children. Students learn everything about children's physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth from infancy until adolescence, and how they develop within their surrounding social contexts. Students gain a clear understanding of social and behavioral sciences, the theories, major research findings, and research methods fundamental to the field of child development.
