Terrett told the class that she would give good behavior tickets to students who got the answers to questions 7 & 8 right. One of the students, Wyatt asked Mrs. Terrett how many tickets she would have to give out if the whole class got both answers right. Mrs. Terrett responded by turning the question into a teaching moment. She asked the students if there are 27 students in this classroom and everyone earned 2 tickets each, how many tickets would she have to give out? 10) The following instructional strategies used in the properties of multiplication lesson: • Modeling- The teacher wrote on the board what she wanted the students to write in their math journals.
The teacher then gives an assignment of the same topic which can be of five to ten questions.it is from this assignment that he assesses Sam’s development. If the teacher finds that Sam misses three out of the possible ten while the others got all of them right. The teacher has to cooperate with Sam’s parents where the teacher gives Sam homework of the same topic taught earlier in the day. Such that even when he goes back home they assist him in doing his homework. The next day during mathematics lesson the teacher should ask Sam and the rest what they were taught the previous
My research paradigm and methods The research will be carried out using the qualitative research design that allowed the researcher to obtain a deeper understanding of the research situation. In this case, the researcher studied the participants’ application of mathematical concepts in visual arts. A qualitative research is chosen in order to understand how far mathematical concepts engage in the student affective domain of learning in which the researcher can ask a variety of questions (will not be limited to particular questions). In terms of sampling, around twenty students and two educators will participate in the study. The sample will be selected in a state school, all sc students (form IV and V).
In High School, there 's a strict lesson plan that schools follow when it comes to learning math or any other subjects. High School teaches their student all different types of history, math and a wider range of English and science classes. The question is, how do kids use these different type of course that they’re being placed in later on in their future? High School is where teenagers learn how to become responsible young adults, teaching high school students how to calculate income tax, manage their income, maintaining good credit, and other essential life skills. Instilling these lessons helps navigate them into the real world post high school.
Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
Class: Pre-Kindergarten (4-Year Old Classroom) Unit: Language Development (Alphabet Word and Picture Match) Teacher: Ms. Zarie Baker Objectives: 1. Students will follow simple multistep directions with visual cues if needed. LDC-1m 2. Students will talk to themselves and others about what they are “working on,” what they are doing, routines, and events of the day. LDC-5d 3.With prompting and support, students will use books and other media that communicate information to learn about the world by looking at pictures, asking questions, and talking about the information.
According to Schwartz (2015), ¨Homework is a way for teachers to see where their students are at academically, what they understand and what they don't understand¨ (p. 1). Homework is an excellent way for teachers to observe what their students do and do not know. When bringing homework home, students are challenged to do the work on their own and figure out a way of learning that works for them. The following day, teachers are able to see if the student fully understands the assignment; if they do not, then the teacher is able to review it in class. We were able to see what he understood and what he was having difficulties with (Schwartz, 2015, p. 1).
In the article, “Preserving the Cultural Identity of English Language Learner”, Sumaryono and Ortiz argued that in the classroom, students can become disconnected and feel abandoned if the teacher doesn’t express any sort of sensitivity towards their cultural identities (16). If teachers take some time to understand the cultural identity of the students and develop a good relationship, this could make students feel accepted, worthy and possible show more interest in learning. Students are willing to learn English but being able to freely express themselves and their creativity is of concern. Ortiz recommended that schools “find meaningful ways to incorporate the richness of students’ cultural background in the curriculum” (17). During my high school year, there was a period where students were really under performing in English.
There is a general agreement in society that every child should study Mathematics at school in order to acquire skills for their adult life (Orton & Wain, 1996). Mathematics is thought to be the language in which logical reasoning and problem solving blend together as the goal for development of thinking skills (Johnson & Rising, 1992). Despite these notions, unfortunately, Mathematics is a subject where many secondary school students perform poorly at national examinations (Netherlands, 2004). According to Fuchs, Fuchs, Hamlett and Appleton (2002), Mathematics, especially worded problems, are often challenging for students of all ages, including those with or without special learning needs. This is supported by the fact that there exists
For this reason, I want to explore the topic: Constructivism: How does constructivism impact the teaching and learning of mathematics in four middle schools in the Greenville School District? As a mathematics teacher, one must consider diversity within the classroom because students acquire knowledge and skills at different times and in different ways. Several teachers are slaves to the teacher-centered classroom and resist change for a more student-centered environment. It is of paramount importance that teachers use various teaching strategies to accommodate students’ learning styles. My inquisitiveness leads my interest in investigating if there is a correlation between constructivism (active learning) and students’ performance in mathematics at the middle school level.
