C. Analysis In this chapter, I will make critical analysis on the results of the classroom observation with my opinion. 1. Teacher’s Classroom Management a. Managing students to pay attention to the lesson According to Warfield (2016) mentioned that classroom surrounding very affects to student performance. 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.
In other words, they often used the type of assessment that mainly focuses on the ability of the students to arrive or produce or demonstrate their own learning. They rarely used the assessment tools that focus on the product their students were able to come up with. There are many reasons why teachers are reluctant to use formative assessment in their classroom. Time shortage and large class size are one of the main reasons that teachers mentioned in their interview. Moreover, teachers decided their assessment types basing on its convenience for management.
When I arrived at the workshop, I felt ashamed, embarrassed, and exhausted. I had just finished taking a midterm for my Computer Science class. I had been in McHenry library the past couple of days studying until closing because I wanted to do well in that class. However, after attending the academic conduct decision-making workshop, I have gain awareness of how my decision impact myself and others, learn a framework that can be used to make complex decisions, and learned to analyze my own decisions to create strategies for self-monitoring. At one time during the workshop, the teacher asked us to briefly explain the decision-making that I engaged in that resulted in the academic action that brought me to the workshop today.
For example, I let the children to take lead in their own learning. For instance, at the circle time I urge children to join in the music and movement. When I notice they don’t participate actively, I respect their choices and encourage them work on other activities. However, my co-teacher doesn’t like it, she told me that children need to learn to join the circle time and be familiar with the classroom routine. The other example of incivility in my workplace is my co-teacher likes to take longer break.
New school, making new friends, and getting used to the school. My sophomore year I transferred from Shaw High School. I really didn’t want to go here I would have preferred to stay at shaw, but I couldn’t. Sophomore was my worst year of high school. When I first started Collinwood High School, they didn’t have my transcript over from Shaw so for a month I had to take ninth grade classes.
The video then answers the question with, the students in a student-centered learning environment. first, the video discusses how in teacher-centered learning in classrooms is a form of teaching where the students listen to the teacher and regurgitate back out the opinions and beliefs that the teacher had taught them. With this type of learning students begin to lack skills that would help because the teacher has all the airtime. With teachers having all the speaking time, this causes teachers to become more opinionated and expect the classroom to answer only in the way that the teacher wants the information presented, instead of allowing
In the beginning, I was asked to sit with multiple adults, but was not told of their needs or accommodations. When I tried to socialize with them or help them, they would either react negatively or stare at me confused. I found this challenging for both the participant and myself because the participant is placed with a stranger and is expected to respect and follow along what they are telling/asking them to do, and the instructor goes in empty handed, not knowing anything about the student’s needs or learning style (they can have poor vision, cultural differences, language barriers, physical/intellectual disabilities). Another challenge I encountered was with the teaching methods from the instructor of the literacy program. We shared different beliefs in teaching and I found her methods to be very “by the book” and unengaging for the participants.
Finally, online class cannot enjoy learning directly from the instructor. Professors tend to give good advices to their students, and they also have interesting stories to tell. In conclusion, class base is more interesting because students interact with their classmates, make new friends, and they can learn directly from their instructor. Students can left out these interesting choices when they do not go to an in class base. Students should consider which class they want because online class it is not as interesting if they look for more interaction with
This year's experience was very tiring and enriching. I have to admit that in the first semester I could not understand the rationale behind attending school 3 days a week. However, in the second semester the image became clearer. In my second semester, I was no longer a teacher trainee. I was a real teacher.
These group of learners takes an hour-fifteen-minute lesson from Monday to Thursday and they also have to attend the self-access center to reinforce the topics seen in class. Most of the learners in this lesson are not used to being instructed in the target language, as a result, it was difficult for them to grasp understanding of what I as saying in the first sessions. Second, this particular group I have seems to struggle with some contents taught in the previous lesson so a lot of the work I’ve been doing recently has been remedial work. For instance, they still cannot manage to perform adequately the simple present, therefore, I had to go back and reinforce that grammar structure with diverse functional contents with some extra activities. One advantage that these learners have is that they have a positive attitude and they usually show enthusiasm towards learning the English language.
