The students will discuss their nationality, family values and other important factors of themselves. 27 minutes. Day two 1. The teacher will restate the lesson the students were previously working on and explain the entire class period will consist of their researching the student they pick. The students will pick out a computer to do the research.
Students will look at text from multiple perspectives regarding Native American and non- native interaction in the past. In doing so, students evaluate how history changes based on who tells you it by analyzing different accounts in history. Procedure: Day 1: The lesson will begin by having a class discussion and completing a word web. On the board there will be the phrase “Settlers thoughts on Native Americans” and then as a class we will brainstorm the different words that go with this. Then we will discuss how we know that white settlers thought these things, what stories, reading and propaganda have we looked at.
To help to develop my delegation skill, I will enroll in the Emerging Leaders program at work. I will meet with an experienced leader and be mentored for an hour, once a week for 16 weeks, and be able to shadow them at least one day a month, during that time. Additionally, I will enroll in management-themed computer-based learning provided by my organization, and spend 2 hours per week on training. A2di: Discuss specific actions you will take to reach each of the SMART goals I have developed two SMART Goals that will help improve my leadership skill. I will discuss specific actions to will help me reach these goals.
Standardized testing has become a very controversial topic amongst the nation. There are two sides, one that agrees that these tests are doing well for students and school officials, and another that argues that these tests are hurting the students taking them and should be put to a stop. Norman R. Augustine wrote an article for the need of standardized testing, and Jessie B. Ramey States the ways that the tests are impairing the learning capability of the students. Norman uses three arguments that people opposing the standardized test would most often use. The first is that these test encourages the teachers just to “teach the test”, but he ensures that, this is exactly what the teachers should be doing.
I am getting a little bit better time wise on that. Homeroom in the morning I handle for 15 minutes while the cooperating teacher is in the room. I am scheduled to observe one teacher on Friday while I have a study hall, and I observed another teacher today. I observe the neighbor teacher, who teaches math. They were on a roll the whole class period.
At Waggener High School and Olmsted Middle School I never tutored the same student, so I didn’t see much growth with them like I did at Plymouth. I felt a real connection with my student at Plymouth, but unfortunately I feel he learned more in our hour together than he did in a whole week at his school. They give him a work sheet to work on throughout the week, and when he finishes the worksheet I guess he is free until the next week. I tried to focus on math, reading, and writing with him. He was weak in all the areas, but that was not his fault.
Flunk means to fail to reach standards; students, parents and teachers think it’s a bad thing, but is it really? Instead of thinking the negative of repeating a grade or class, people should see this as practice and becoming successful. Many students may not understand the material and making them retake it will improve their knowledge. In Mary Sherry’s essay, she talks about how teachers and parents should show that flunking is a positive teaching tool. I agree with her because we aren’t all perfect and sometimes we need that extra lesson or we need to repeat the material again.
Literature Review “Children know how to learn in more ways than we know how to teach them.” —Ronald Edmonds (1991) Each child learns in a different way, therefore if teachers are mainly focused on instructing the majority auditory/visual learners; the students who have different learning styles needs aren’t being met, which results in lack of basic skills moving forward. The idea of one instructional strategy fitting all is creating a void in classrooms; which in turn is failing to help those students struggling the most. Campbell, Helf, and Cooke, (2008) suggests a reason for some students’ ongoing lack of achievements that, “too often, students are instructed indirectly, watching and listening to the teacher or other students with little or no opportunity to actually read” (p. 268). Children who are unsuccessful early are more likely to start disliking reading and avoid it all together (Campbell et al., 2008). When children aren’t successful at reading from early on, they’re at a substantially higher risk of being unable to read at grade level (Campbell et al., 2008).
That causes a student a lot of stress with all the hard work they do during the years it seems like a waste when it comes down to a test to graduate it can be very discouraging. So in conclusion i feel Standardized tests can hinder more than help our students by limiting teaching, creating stress when it comes to graduating, putting a limit on learning for the student and teaching for the teachers. We need to have a second look at the real benefit of Standardized tests and if it is worth our students self
It will briefly discuss the feedback from my tutor and the group members. And finally the conclusion. Definition of group According to Berg, Fall, & Landre (2013, p 195) "Group work is a broad professional practice involving the application of knowledge and skill in group facilitation to assist an interdependent collection of people to reach their mutual goals which may be intra-personal, interpersonal, or work related" Planning In order to prepare for our group facilitation exercise, my colleague and I sat together for the first time in class to plan and discussed our understanding of what we thought was expected of us. According to (Corey, Corey & Corey, 2010) if group facilitators are prepared, they are more likely to be able to effectively open up members for a meaningful group experience. We agreed that I would open the group and my colleague would close the group.
