I remember when in my early school years I had such a great relationship with my teachers. I knew all my teacher’s kids’ names. I even knew some of their pet’s names. Class time was fun when we were in elementary school, and all the testing has taken away a lot of the opportunity for fun in the classroom. I wish teacher turnover rates weren’t as high as there are, but you have to be compassionate about your teaching profession and committed if you really want to be a success for the
Twisted This summer, I chose to read the book Twisted which was written by Laurie Halse Anderson. In Twisted, I noticed how each of the main characters personality traits played a key role throughout the story. I realized who I would and wouldn’t enjoy as a classmate. I know that classmates can “make or break” a class so they’re an important part in a classroom environment. If you have classmates who respect, listen, and lend their helping hand to each other, then you will most likely have a great classroom environment and experience in that class.
During the interview she gave me good advices such as: do not be afraid on the first day of the class and during the whole semester; let children see you as a confident professional and caring person; evaluate and reflect on how you teach and how your outcomes look like; always grow. Then we talked about how to promote the intellectual, social, emotional, physical growth and well-being of children. She said that in her situation she is aware of where her students are. She tries to create a comfortable, safe environment for them. She always know which student needs extra help with which subject.
Positive, productive learning needs to be the focus. My favorite field experience, by far was this one here at Van E. Blanton Elementary School. I was placed in a classroom with students with many diverse, yet was not passing their state testing and obviously needed more attention and help. The teacher helped each student individually and showed incredible amounts of patience. She created a healthy classroom environment, and the students were all engaged and excited about learning.
Parker Palmer’s The Heart of a Teacher: Identity and Integrity in Teaching had an impact on my idea of what it means to be a teacher. The main points Palmer highlights are what it means to be a great teacher and make a lasting impression in a student; we must teach from who we are and connect with students. I can relate to this as building a relationship with students and a comfortable atmosphere is important in my teaching. Good teaching develops from connections with students and content. When I think back to my placement and reflect on what I wanted to achieve the most, it was to connect with my students and build a relationship.
I wound up changing different drafts of my papers in these classes. I feel like this is something essential that I have learned from these classes. Learning to reexamine and determine mistakes to have the assistance of my associates or my professor is something that will incredibly help the nature of my writing. I had a feeling that I was a solid writer coming into this class however now having the capacity to adjust my writing to distinctive styles and having the capacity to make fitting and compelling revisions to my work I have a feeling that I am a more finish English student. I was exceptionally stubborn to alter my work before these classes, on the other hand I now understand that modification are a vital piece of life as well as they are a critical piece of learning and writing.
I think my teacher should use this strategy before asking students to read because it helps students to get the main ideas about the text, it helps students to require information that they want and to get a general sense of a topic. I propose to ask students skim the text first in thirty seconds and then asks them questions about what they read or what they understood from reading the headings and the authors` points of view (S,
By writing down student ideas and perspectives in essays, even in non-academic disciplines, they hone their own expression skills, identify patterns, observed events and consider possible solutions. The skills we are learn for college and university can help us in career, as well. Reports for office jobs, essays for scientific journals and many other careers require us to know academic writing. Learning it early and getting lots of practice is a good way to get ahead in our
I believe our students are our future. Each of our students has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. In fact the teacher has the opportunity to touch the future of every student. So, in order to accomplish that, our mission is to make the environment of the student conducive to learn. Based on what I experienced, the big responsibility when it comes to teaching is to motivate them into actively participate in every lesson.
I shadowed teachers and truly believed that teaching was my desired career path. I have experience in different grade levels such as pre-k, kindergarten, and the 2nd grade. Student teaching was an amazing experience, I learned that I am patient, caring ,and the students really respected me as an authority figure, all characteristics I plan to take with me into school counseling. Even though, teaching was a great opportunity,
The gradual release model is used in every topic in Mrs. Kern’s class and the students respect each other and the group to make it run smoothly and are always kind to those that may need more explicit instruction. Her class actually says, “I do”, “We do” and “You do” prior to the steps being worked on. This helps them to recognize that they are being helped, they are helping and they are doing what they have learned. It gives them a sense of pride and
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
I would prompt language from my students and ask them to write the answer. Meaning my students would not only tell me an answer they would write it as well. In addition, games and activities done independently or with peers; continuously modeling throughout the day, and writing what students say during discussions with the class would be the types of behaviors displayed to promote literacy. Read alouds would be held on the magic carpet placed in the center of the
