I plan to review my walkthrough notes with the teacher and provide her some examples or second grade samples for her to see what they will soon be required to do. I will also give her some scenarios to try with her own students. I hope the teacher will use my feedback as a tool in her classroom. I do not think she is not a well-rounded teacher, I believe she wants to help them and see them succeed, but it should done in moderation. I will also invite her to my class and see a similar math lesson that they are taught to gain ideas and see from a different perspective.
Gloria Merrier, a Floridian Math teacher develops a new method to help her students pass the FCAT. She utilizes Math, Dance, Art and Music to encourage her students to learn and captivate the lessons. Additionally, she starts by teaching the lessons which her student might struggle in first instead of the easy lessons. Gloria’s method seems appropriate for all grade levels. It is something that most classroom teachers might use to motivate students.
Back in the first grade, I remembered when my teacher, Ms.Ettro, would call on me to answer a math question. “Theresa, what is the answer to this problem?” she asked. I shrugged. I knew the answer, but acted as if I didn’t know, so she could move on to the next student. This was my way of communicating to others: shrugging or nodding.
They are going to teach teachers a step by step of different features that located in smart board including page recorder, magic pen, smart recorder and video player by the help of instructional designer and training sessions provided for the teachers students enjoy the smart board because of its interactivity and it lets them to be successful at school and they pass the EOG exam and the students start to have high grades and they move to other
a. Briefly describe and compare these two teachers. Answer: Author has describes the nature of both Math and English teacher in this article.

Learning How to Learn Response Essay Everyone has learned something in their lifetime, most of us have done our harder learning at school. In school students learn math, history, English, science and other subjects. What they don’t learn is how to learn these subjects. In this video “Learning how To Learn”, Barbara Oakley, a professor of engineering, points out the main ways of how to learn. She mentions how most teachers use metaphor and analogy to teacher, and she uses these a lot in her explaining how to learn.
And I was good at math in high school. I was enjoying math, and never got bored when I was doing my homework. However, I like to study about human body structures. Taking care of patient. Choosing a right major was getting harder and harder because I enjoy doing math problems and l love to take care of people.
Rarely do fourth graders happily discuss arithmetic to any extent. Miss Ferenczi is a positive influence by teaching them to be excited about learning through the stories she tells them. The conflict in the story is caused by the difference of what the accepted view of education is and the way Miss Ferenczi teaches. The accepted way of teaching is to teach children what is the right way to do specific things, such as math and spelling. Children are taught that these things are what are important for the standard version of success.
In college I could be a tutor and help clear the fog away from the brains of some of the students to have them get the grades they want to obtain. Then, since my plan is to be a high school math teacher, tutoring is great practice for me to learn how to get the point across to the students and help them not hate math, unlike so many middle school and high school students do today. Maybe I will even be able to help others find their love for math, just like my middle school math teacher did for me. Or I could just teach them math until their heads explode, which ever
In Mathematical Mindsets by Jo Boaler, current and future educators learn all about the different outlooks children have on math and ways their adult piers put unknowingly force that upon them. The author, Joe Boaler, is a mathematical teacher who has had the opportunity of teaching elementary students. She has a doctorate degree from Stanford and has done studies of her own classroom taking a deeper look into how math is most effective in the classroom. Americans tend to have a skewed perspective that math consists solely of equations and rules that must be followed (Boaler 34). Kids are praised for being smart and gifted in math when in fact “…there is no such thing as a ‘math brain’ or a math gift’ as many believe.
If the teacher speaks every time, students won’t learn anything because we are telling them how to solve and work on the word problem. If the students work and we assist them through question, they will understand how to solve the problem. In my first year of teaching, I was talking and giving students everything they needed to know. In this new school year, I will take my students and use the real world activities. For example: Let the students walk around and use the materials to measure the things they see in their campus.
I have made many connections with MAT 139 this semester. When I was in the tutor program we were required to get some field experience by helping students. I chose to help three and four year olds with math. Although the material was adding, I was able to apply the skills I learned in the tutor program to teach the kids. My teacher in MAT 139 would show us multiple ways to solve a problem so when teaching the children I would use more than one method to get them to learn the subject matter (Hammond, pg 2).
Among the similarities both classes look very structure and with excellent routines in place. The differences were minimal because Mrs. Pitcher and Ms. Valentine work as a team. An “ah ha” moment for me was to observe how well the kids work together and have well establish routines. The reading strategies used were reading groups by level and students answering comprehension questions. The teachers
In Elementary school they would give you scores out of 6, 4 was average and 5 or 6 was outstanding. I would frequently receive 3s and sometimes even 2s. However, the worst critiquing I have ever experienced was in 8th grade. My teacher Ms. Garncarz had us write narratives similar to the one I am writing now but she had us work in partnerships. After mostly working individually, with some help from my partner, my teacher told me that my writing wasn 't original and that I needed to stop having my writing rely on others.
When doing this task I made sure to use real life example for the words, so they could get a better understand of the word. Once they start to recognize the words it was easier for them to spell and comprehend the meaning. I word have to direct the class to pull ou the book and make sure they were reading after they finish their work. Also, I went of many of the kids wam ups and exits tickets. Activity 7 During my time at the school I had to help students log in to there math program.
