For example, if a principal was to walk in, he/she will be able to see what the students would be learning that day. Not only are these important for her students to stay on schedule, but if she were to be absent, these lesson plans help the substitute know what the students need to complete that day. Another type of writing she deals with in her daily routine is sending emails. As mentioned before, Mrs. Martinez is the Head Grade Level Chair for Kindergarten which means she organizes and shares different ideas with the rest of the Kindergarten teachers. This is extremely important because they rely on her for her emails on what is going to happen
The diversity of the group brings out different approaches to confront any math problem. One resource that the teacher could use to make sure cultural diversity is expressed, could be to use teaching strategy websites. It is up to the teacher to make sure students are being taught multicultural lessons. The teacher shows consideration in presenting cultural diversity, by letting the students work in groups. The students can absorb any information from other students who have a diverse cultural background.
What I learned from her that can make me a better teacher candidate is that I should understand how a student learns. It makes take a while to understand that in the beginning, but if I can get myself in a classroom faster and observe different teaching techniques then I will be an expert by the time I graduate. Not all students learn the same, so as a teacher we must know how they learn and how we can incorporate it in our lesson. Not only understand how they learn, but their gaps as well. We should think about; what can we do help them understand before moving on and how to assess the students.
The researcher will ask permission (issue of ethnics) to observe one or two visual art lesson in which the teacher will teach a particular art topic where she is using few elements of mathematics in art. The researcher will design two questionnaires; one for students and another for the educators. The students’ questionnaire consisted of short open ended questions inquiring their application of mathematical concept in their drawings. The educators’ questionnaire included open-ended questions which allowed the researcher to understand the educators’ perceptions on mathematical concepts in visual art. The researcher will use the triangulation method which supports multiple methods of data collection.
The evaluation was divided into two broad categories Scholastic that looked at the areas which were subject specific and Co-Scholastic that included activities that were co-curricular like life skills, attitudes and values. The Scholastic evaluations was divided into Summative assessment to help analyse how much the students have learned after teaching through various medium like multiple choice questions, long and short answers , match the following , fill in the blanks and understanding diagrams in science . and Formative assessment to evaluate the students everyday learning situations during teaching to help identify gaps to help provide feedback to teachers to take remedial action which was done through various tools like observation, document analysis ,peer reviews ,self-assessment ,tests and the various techniques used were like projects ,assignments , activities , making of posters ,charts ,collages ,group discussions and seminars whereas the life skills looked at enhancing the thinking, social and emotional skills . The summative assessment are to assess skills like teamwork ,leadership skills , memory and understanding along with
Currently, I am an Art teacher employed at one of the local secondary schools in Grenada, Mc Donald’s College. I do not teach math but it is used on a daily basis when I am grading papers, calculating grades and completing report cards for the students. Being a student studying for a degree in Early Childhood Education, Math is very important. In order to complete my studies, taking courses like Statistical Analysis1 (MA260) and Early Childhood Math and Science (EC400) are required. Math is useful in my career, because I will be responsible for teaching young children the fundamentals of Math which they will need to understand.
Keeping a thinking journal. Students need a journal or learning log to reflect upon their thinking. IV. Planning and self- regulation: Students can be taught to make plans for learning activities, organizing materials and becoming self-directed learners. V. Debriefing the thinking process: Closure activities focus student discussion on thinking processes to develop awareness of strategies that can be applied to other learning situations.
Some positive feedback the teacher would receive was a head nod every once in awhile, but from only one or two students. The teacher also did receive some negative nonverbal feedback, in that some people were working on the due lesson or the next lesson as she would teach. I think that the positive feedback from the students was noticed more by the teacher than the negative, as she was confident in her teaching and kept the attentive students listening and trying to understand the new principles of the lesson. Something the teacher would do was ask questions of the audience to see if the information was making sense to us. Some
Both Marco and Destiny had guidance but they were able to use methods and strategies that were taught to them during teacher preparation and apply it to their situations. Marco and Destiny could have been easily discouraged to continue their teaching careers but decided to continue and help the students with the resources that were giving to them as well as redesign curriculums to better fit the students’ needs while meeting the state
These were based on research in the area of concerns. One action research, was designed with the math teacher using spiral teaching math concepts. Data was collected using the district benchmarks. At this school, the population was mostly ELL students. An action research was created using academic vocabulary in math using student vocabulary booklet.
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.
Lanza during this class period was the modeling method. That is, since the classes were preparing for the PARCC exam, Mrs. Lanza had her students complete PCRs and then graded them as a group according to PARCC standards. This allowed students to see just how grades are determined for PCRs and why they are given the grades they receive, and encouraged students to think like a PARCC test grader. As a result of this teaching by modeling, students were able to see both good and bad responses and why they are considered as such. This allowed students to walk out of class having a better idea of how they will be graded on the PARCC and how they can work to specifically improve their writing
A lot of the reasons that I want to be a math teacher line up with what Mrs. Coty said as well. Mrs. Coty’s ideas on teacher-student relationships, discipline, correction, and engagement are unique, interesting, and effective. I’ve seen her get a student to correct their behavior by simply saying “Are we acting
I recently received my SEI endorsement and my ESL license is waiting on paperwork. However, I am currently acting as the ESL teacher in my school and I am unsure what my responsibilities are as an ESL teacher vs. being an English Language Arts teacher with the SEI endorsement. When I read this article, I noticed that many of the strategies mentioned are ones that I utilize in both my ELA and ESL classrooms. Therefore, I am curious as to how I can provide literacy services to my ESL students without overwhelming with the same content that they are also receiving in the Language Arts classes. I am asking this question as an ESL teacher with students who are currently in intermediate WIDA levels (high 3’s to low 5’s).
