Lack of time to finish work is a problem that I hope to be able to deal over time. Sometimes I felt that I had too much to do and not enough time. I planned my units for a set period of time but when I put into practice in class it was not as I expected it. I got used to watch the time (clock on the wall) to control the time, and that helped me. One strategy I used was to let students know when an activity will
So, this is the teachers’ duties to make the students pay attention to the lesson when the students feel so bored and lost their concentration during the lesson. Based on my observation, there are some ways to make the students pay attention to the lesson, they are: • The teacher would review the last material, and then she asked the students to memorize the last material about the name of the day and the month. • She said “please focus”
Making up the failed project was going to be hard because it was during finals week and I had to get a 70 to pass the project and class. I couldn’t even get a 60 so this was going to be tough. On finals week I was studying and stressing over my other three classes so it wasn’t making it any easier. It was the last day to do the project and I was in the library thinking I was going to take about an hour on this project. That was not the case because when I had failed the first time it had taken me about an hour and a half to finish it.
In my experience, teaching content that has the deepest value was not an easy task initially. I relied mostly on what my employers expected me to teach, so most of my objectives were set in their line not mine for quite some time. Perhaps, I started to think about it more seriously, when I was doing the DELTA in Hastings, East Sussex; that is, when I decided to view teaching differently: from all my uncertainties. My DELTA tutors had asked me to choose a teaching point for a pre-intermediate group as part of one of our first assignments and, honestly, this was the first time I could actually decide what to teach. Naturally, I needed some help then from a colleague who shared his views on how to select content within a given topic.
I began to gather my own taught about the course even before my own experience and my hatred grew more. None the less, my feelings began to change after my second class because I began to realize that the course foun 1019 could be a significant help in my other courses. The course content comprised of
“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.
The to do list will include all assignments, reading, and studying I have to do each week. This will help me to avoid accidently forgetting something and therefore cause my grade in the class to suffer. Each time after an exam, I will evaluate with myself what I thought I did well and what I thought I needed to improve on with my studying and test taking skills. If I get a grade of C or lower on any of my exams, I will make an effort to see the professor to discuss my exam and look over my exam. Each week I will read all the readings and make notes while I read, and if something does not make sense to me make a special note to ask about it in class or go to the professor’s office hours to ask the question.
Time and I went and observed Mr.Sundance’s math concepts class. Upon hearing that this class has students from different backgrounds and cultures, my preconception was formed. My preconception was based on previous experiments and it was that the class will be a big mess since not all students came from the same grade and age group. I have been in math classes where students came from different grades and the teacher has a really hard time teaching the class because the older students seem to understand concepts better than the younger students. This created a big gap in gardes that the students received as well as the speed in which they move on forward to the next concepts.
My teaching has been evaluated by the class instructor for 14 hours. During that time I have discovered some Lessons from the Classroom Pg 3 strengths and weaknesses in my teaching. My main weakness was uncovered during my teaching experience . I have not found an adequate way to address the students by their names. I tried writing the names on the board but I find myself randomly calling out names instead of making eye contact with the student I am calling on.
Speech Outline INTRODUCTION i. Attention-Getter/Hook I’m sure many, if not all have been frustrated at some point in school because you don’t understand the lesson. It’s like reading a novel but not being able to recall anything after. Many students feel this way, and the number one culprit is the way teachers have been teaching to students this whole time. ii. Introduce your Issue Traditional teaching, as It is called, is when the teacher stands at the front of the room, dictating a lesson to students and passing out worksheets for them to do.
