DIY - What Is Life? How can you determine whether something is alive, dead, or non-living? Whenever we speak of life, we must think in terms of cells. Even though we cannot see cells without a microscope, they are the basic unit of life and they exhibit all of the characteristics of living organisms. They can exist individually, as do bacteria, or they may work together, taking on specialized tasks to create a more complex organism.
Nowadays, there are a number of different types of assessments used in the classroom. Students are quizzed, pre-tested and tested and they are required to write essays, fill in the blanks and answer multiple-choice questions. These assessments are given by teachers as a method of determining whether or not the student has gained mastery over the content that is being taught. Individuals who teach reading operate in the same way. Given that one of the primary goals for teaching students to read is for them to comprehend the materials they read, teachers must devise a method of assessing whether students, in fact, understand what they read.
“Often students blurt the first answer that comes to mind. Sometimes they shout out an answer, start to work without fully understanding the directions, lack an organized plan or strategy for approaching a problem or make immediate value judgments about an idea---criticizing or praising it---before fully understanding it” (Costa & Kallick, 2000, p. 3). For this reason, I decided to focus on managing impulsivity. Also, listening with understanding and empathy was another focus area implemented in my classroom. Once a student is able to manage their impulsivity, learning can take place in the classroom.
If it has changed why has it changed? If your definition has stayed the same why did it stay the same?” Application: • The students will research and bring in one article that describes the actual event of their situation. • The students will read the article using close reading strategies. • They will do a PIN reading which is they record something positive, interesting, and negative from what they read. • “For homework tonight your job is to research the situation that you and your group examined closely.
I will give a chance for students to read over the documents. We will then discuss the documents, and the possible reasons as to why the Japanese were interned, and following that the students will work on the documents on their own. Once again, this allows the work to be modeled for students, and for students to have an immediate discussion over the material they just read before working on their own for the other documents (Bruner). In lesson, 3 students are given direct instruction over the Pacific Campaign, and the concept of island hoping, and are introduced to the Navajo code, and that some minorities were praised during the war this ties into previous units where we have examined how America has treated
The communicative partner then turns the strips toward the student and recites the “I want” phrase before handing the student the desired object.6 Phase V: Answering Questions The reason that the communicative partner must use the command “I want” as the precursor to the desired object in phase IV is the communicative partner is preparing the student for the answering questions phase of the PECS program. This phase focuses on answering the question “What do you want?” and the student should be able to spontaneously request a variety of items.7 Phase VI: Commenting In the final phase of the PECS program, the student learns to make up sentences starting with “I see”, “I hear”, “I feel”, etc.1 This way, the student learns to comment on the environment around him/her. The communicative partner creates pictures for these expressions which can create opportunities for the student to express themselves by making comments such as “I like ice cream. What do you
Generally, one or two students do raise their hands to pose a question for clarification. However, to make sure the directions are understood I will call on a few students, one at a time, to tell me what I need to do in order to accomplish the task. My view has changed some about how to perform better with diverse students in the classroom as well. For instance, to work with students and parents I will post daily homework assignments on the class website. This approach is helpful to students if they need to confirm the assignment given.
Table 1. Evaluation of the didactical material. Step Dynamic evaluation Pre-Test questionnaire and plasticine use A questionnaire containing seven questions was orally presented and the responses about students' preconceptions about arthropods were recorded and transcribed. Plasticine was offered to both visually impaired and non- visually impaired students so that they could represent arthropods according to their preconceptions. After that, they shared their models raising discussions about the anatomy of arthropods and their importance to the environment.
Where do I want to go to and why? Their work will be check for errors. Letting the students critically think of what they desire will prepare them strongly for a fruitful discussion on the group road trip. Task 3: This activity will focus on developing the reading abilities of the student using a road trip planning article titled: How to Plan the Perfect Road Trip. Pre-reading and post-reading activities will be done in order to introduce vocabulary and then check comprehension.
By only focusing on the characters viewpoint would have helped the two students understand what to look for. Also, by writing on the board the student’s answer will help students look back on the answers. When working on their group they could have gone back to the example, and refocused themselves on what they should be looking when thinking of the characters viewpoint. Being visually creating in the beginning of teaching the lesson would have avoided students to become confused when working with their group
