On top of that, I had an English class where my teacher would give us a poem and we would have to analyze it. She would then tell us to come up with our own poem and short stories to present to the class. In this class, I learned how to annotate texts and to understand why the author wrote it the way he did. This class also helped me learn more complex words to understand texts and enhance my writing skills. In conclusion, my parents and my teachers influenced and shaped my literacy journey.
-- Seek help at the Writing Center and/or feedbacks from students/professors/advisers. -- Read over other classmate’s papers and observe their writing styles. In order to measure my progress, I will keep a folder specifically for my Communications Skills course. For each writing assignment, I will keep a journal to remind myself of the goals that I have outlined above and mentally check them off before I submit my writing assignment. My second improvement would be the ability to speak in front of the large group of people, as stated in my Intro Letter, Although, I have overcome this problem over the years; I still feel some anxiety once giving a speech to my fellow classmates in the new college environment.
For the assessment blueprint, I will be discussing 4 different L.T. (Learning Targets) and describe what the assessment items are and how the items will be giving my students based on a story called The Lion and the Mouse. L.T #1 allows students to practice vocabulary and create their own sentences to describe the illustrations in the text. L.T. #2 is sorting and determining the order of events using their descriptions or the illustrations in the book.

To start, the teachers have a better understanding of the curriculum. The teacher 's job is to evaluate the standard and teach it to the students, which includes picking books reflecting the curriculum. This further establishes that the students are the ones being taught, and it isn’t their job to evaluate the standard and decide which book the class should read. In fifth grade, my class read The Tale of Despereaux, which was chosen by my teacher, and the class thoroughly enjoyed the book. This shows that the teacher evaluated the curriculum and decided on a book that reflected the standard and interested the students.
I learned how to get used to presenting from when we presented to our groups near the beginning. Making the poster for a scene in the book “The house on mango street” helped me visualize the scene. We have done several other things that I have forgotten. The process for making my booktrack short story started with getting 2 ideas for a story and making a diagram for both to see which would be best, that’s when I chose to make my story about my oss trip. I made a different diagram about where the dialogue was going to be.
If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write. It would be exciting to be able to sit down and read my students papers. After we constructed our essays, we had to complete a peer review activity. I enjoyed helping people look over their essays and give them suggestions on how they could improve their essays. The peer review activity made me open my eyes and see that I enjoy helping
H returns she explains that she is going to put the students in groups to do a graded worksheet on author’s purpose. Group one has three students with Student E, who has doing a animals studies project, Student K and Student A. Group two is Student M and Student S.
