According to Jarmel and Schneider (2010), by the year 2025, one-third of students attending public schools will not know English when they start Kindergarten. How will schools adapt to this? Will teachers and/or students be limited on what they can teach/learn throughout the school year because of time restraints? In a documentary Speaking in Tongues, directed by Jarmel & Schneider (2010), four students who range from Kindergarten to eighth grade, showcase their experiences about attending public school around the San Francisco area to become bilingual. The four students Durrell, Jason, Julian, and Kelly are taught in English and also in a second language such as Mandarin, Spanish, Chinese, and Cantonese.
During Week Two, participants involved in the study were required to complete a Learning Styles Assessment, as well as a Classroom Climate Survey. Both formal and informal observations were conducted, as well as a group discussion that centered around the results received from the Learning Styles Assessment and Classroom Climate Survey. Lastly, the researcher conducted an interview whereby both teachers involved in the study were surveyed to determine which of the following seven literacy strategies, proven effective with high school
Next, because you have to do homework getting the extra day of so the student’s saying they should have four day school week are actually right because it is actually better because they have a extra homework day so they don 't fall behind in their work cause if they
During the observation portion of this assignment, I observed in a fifth grade ELL classroom. The teacher in charge of this class is Anissa Rose. She has been an ELL teacher for many years and teaches students in kindergarten through the 8th grade. This paper will discuss whether or not the students were aware of the class language and content objective, how the teacher instructed the content and language objectives, the type of group configurations, and how the teacher accommodated for different ELP levels.
Also, she wants the record (data) from Thomas and DDS, she said she wants to compare it the progress from my house’s system, and I need to prove it with something significant with the school system .Miss Wendy told me that six month is not enough time to the school show his progress, and I told her I would not want to wait more, and I told her that I felt as if my son was going to babysitter, once I saw the teacher note saying what he ate and drank only, without telling me what he learned or is learning, I also told her that I not mean that the school is bad, I believe so that he has more chance to learn in another school. She told me that CCCD does not offer speech therapist, I would have to pay separately, then I told her that I will find out about it. Also, I said that Vinny wants to sit on the lap of the people, and she told that she saw in the classroom the teacher sits on the chair behind him and he lean back, I mentioned that I saw too, when I went to visit the school with my husband and the
This lesson will be taught in a Pre-K ESE classroom with 19 students. They are between the ages of three to five years old. Nine of the children are developmentally delayed (with speech delays, ADHD, and/or Autistic tendencies). Two students are English language learners. 17 students are dual language learners.
Not only did it put stress on student it also pressure the teacher because if any student was to fail it would put the teacher in the line of question why the student wasn’t able to pass. Now think about standardized testing in a work environment. Picture it you come in to work every day on time do all the project your manger assign you. You’re the ideal employee and after three year they make you take a one test and you don’t pass the test by a few point. Now that promotion you were in line to get goes right out the window along with all the other effort you put in the previous 3 years.
Everyone in America has to go to school at some point some point in their life. Most students in California attend school for 6 hours a day. In Adelanto, CA students learn math, science, language arts, history, PE, and an elective during the time. Some students are struggling academically with this schedule. I believe that students would get a higher chance of success if they have an 8 hour school.
Good morning and welcome to our first annual cultural diversity retreat for South Glen Elementary school. The school board funded this three-day event in preparation for our upcoming school year. We will be receiving students from a culture different than the American culture we, as staff and our present students, are accustomed. We will have 30 Bosnian immigrants. Each class will take approximately 6 to 7 new students to maintain the average class size of 25 students.
Stereotypes of English Learners A numerous population in public schools in America are English Language Learners, and the number of these students is increasing rapidly. In the article ELL Face Unique Challenges, states that “ Over the past 15 years, the number of ELL students has nearly doubled—to about 5 million. By 2015, ELL enrollment in U.S. schools will reach 10 million and, by 2025, nearly one out of every four public school students will be an English Language Learner.”
Unit Three Freakonomics Response Chapter 5 of the book Freakonomics addresses what the possible reasons that make a child do well on standardized testing. The options are, what a parent does for a child or what a parent is. The answers are somewhat surprising. They also make me feel a little better.
An effective leader recognizes that every student is unique. Our students come from different backgrounds and cultures that affect the way they participate in their learning. That leader encourages students to share their cultural and ethnic differences with others. Exploring these differences can lead to better understanding of the student population as a whole and allows educators to build classrooms and school communities that are safe, while fostering great environments for learning. She (or he) also understands all students perform at different ability levels, some students need to be challenged academically and some need increased assistance to reach grade level standards.
I am a result of my family, faith, and educational experiences around the world and across the country. Throughout my entire life I have lived and travelled to many different parts of the world and from that my education and experiences from my time in England and Europe, Arizona, and in South Carolina have shaped my into the person I am today and helped me figure out the type of person I want to strive to be in the future. Before I had even begun my primary years in education I had already moved from South Carolina to Georgia and over to Colorado, but the biggest change came when my family and I moved across the Atlantic Ocean to England. I started my education in a small village primary school affiliated with the local church, which influenced the curriculum and teaching methods contrasting the practices of the American education system. Another unique view impressed on me early in my education was that the STEM approach to education did not create a well-rounded student that would be an innovator and beneficial member of society and the university route was not the only means to make a future.
I started taking honors type classes in third grade, when my elementary school had an optional class for gifted students to assist in developing our problem solving and literature skills. From fourth through seventh grade I was homeschooled. The curriculum I was using was more advanced and more involved personally than what I'd experienced in my regular elementary school classes. It wasn't simply a classroom where I was handed a packet of work and the teacher walked away. I was allowed to talk through my work and analyze my ideas deeper, instead of simply doing questions by rote, which helped greatly in learning more complicated subjects instead of only memorizing them.
