At the end of the lesson I wanted them to write a summary of their own using a Ted Talk; therefore, the objective was for the students to write an effective summary of the Ted Talk using their graphic organizer with 85% accuracy. In order for them to successfully reach that objective, I reviewed the graphic organizer and the steps to use and things to avoid when writing a summary with the class. I gave them a short story and together we used the template I gave them to make a summary of the story. After practicing writing that summary, I showed them a short Ted Talk. As a class, we talked about the Ted Talk and we discussed and analyzed the speech.
Mr. Keating then asks what “carpe diem” means, and one of the students replies with “sieze the day.” Mr. Keating wanted the kids to learn on the first day, that it’s okay to go after your dreams, even if it’s stupid or you have people saying no. Mr. Keating also has some of his classes outside. This connects with the essay Nature by Emerson. Another example of how the Dead Poets Society relates to transcendentalism is the Dead Poets Society itself. The society that the boys were in helped them realize
It is taught by Katy Tiemeyer. College prep covers the basic skills used in college. These skills include note taking, delivering speeches, and goal making. A short term goal I have for this class are to review for the upcoming tests and do well on them. Another goal is to complete the homework and to turn it in early when possible.
I would not say writing English assignment is very hard for me, but I mean I make some mistakes. We wrote four paper assignments this quarter, two of them about the story we read in class, one from a story and outside material and one about English 101 class at itself which is this paper. We must submit the rough draft before the due date of the assignment, which helps us to have clarification from our instructor and from a classmate. I am always improving after each paper I wrote, because I follow up with the comment I received, edit my paper then make an appointment with my instructor before I submit my final draft. These comments make me feel confident in the next paper.
Junior year was when I began timed writing sessions, being able to construct a well written essay in forty minutes. By the end of the year they told us that it should be at the quality of an assignment we had two weeks to write. With this type of high school education I have come to understand that my
The teacher asks the students to turn and talk to the person next to them about what they learned or explain it to someone who doesn’t understand it. In the classroom there’s a list of words the students will learn throughout the year, every night they would get new words and at the end of the week, they would get quizzed on a set of words. The teacher has an annotation chart that has different things that students can do. For example, if the students have a question about their reading they can put question marks next to it and more.This helps the students understand the reading much better and this also helps the teacher know the students need help with. There were many students who wouldn’t listen and would just be laughing, getting up without asking and disrupted the class during the lesson they would lose their recess, However if the students were doing
What is the name of this shape? I will also ask the students to look at the illustrations in the book and ask the students what shapes they can see. c) I will then show the students the book we read the previous day Ésta es mi casa by Arthur Dorros. I will show them the pictures of the houses in the book and ask them what shapes the houses are. d) The students will then move to do centers.
Ever wonder about real life lessons and what comes with having them, well the essay you 're about to read will teach you about them. First of all many lessons from older times have been taught today in school, some may not have been. To kill a mockingbird is a great lesson that teachers shouldn 't teach today for example the book has old fashioned and very sophisticated writing like on pg(31) “Jems free dispensation of my pledge..”, what high schooler in 10th grade is going to know what that word even means.If teachers are going to teach a lesson to their students then the kids should actually be able to understand the writing. Another example why to kill a mockingbird shouldn 't be taught in schools today is because kids would read this book and most likely not even be able to relate to the book, the whole racism thing we wouldn 't understand mainly because in our times everyone is treated the same, color doesn 't matter. Back then it was a big deal, we didn 't grow up in those times how on earth could we even understand what that sort of thing is like.
As I am currently teaching an after school tutorial lessons in my previous school so I have more chance to hang with some of the senior students that is facing the public exam.During the teaching I found that many psychological strategies would possibly be applied to our daily life. I was a secondary school student just a few years ago too.I can understand that assignments and tests thought may seem good to student which urge them to study,it would somehow disturb a student 's study plan and cause a huge stress when those things start to stack.So in the first few lessons, I tried to create a more relaxing atmosphere and pressure-free environment for them.I did not use strong words to coerce them to do revision and I paid the price,none of them can turn what I have tough into a long-term memory .But with some hacks that I have learnt from the psychology lesson now, I would now manage my class better and I would observe
I am responsible for the test of cardio-respiratory function which require me to learn the use of peak flow rate meter. Moreover, I need to set up some questions as quiz in the talk and questionnaire for better understanding to their health habit As the service day are coming closer, the school rearrange the planned service day and time. We can only practice our service on Friday afternoon. As the newly arranged time is not enough, only about total six hours for direct contact with students, we have to cancel the talk and only do health assessment of blood pressure and cardio-respiratory function for form one student. I admit that I feel a bit frustrated at that moment because our prepared material and activities cannot be fully presented.
