Lynsie and I went to Washington Irving Elementary School every Thursday this semester from 8:45 until 9:45 in the mornings. While at the school, we worked with a first-grade student named Reid. The first two weeks at the school, we spent time getting to know Reid and testing him using the Informal Reading Inventory. We used this test to see what we needed to work on with him to help him master each area. After we tested Reid and analyzed the information, we created lesson plans that addressed his needs and we picked out books that were at the appropriate reading level for him.
All around the world, a wide variety of emotions and feelings can be found within different students. However, for a teacher, unfolding and deciphering which students are experiencing what emotions can be difficult if no extra effort is made. In Donna De La Cruz’s New York Times Op Ed article, “What Kids Wish Their Teachers Knew,” she addresses the life experiences of Kyle Schwartz, a third grade teacher at Doull Elementary School in Denver, to publicize how much there really is for teachers to get to know about their students. At her school, Ms. Schwartz took an attempt to unveil more about her students lives by asking them to complete the sentence “I wish my teacher knew.”. This resulted in many unique responses that were powered by a mixture
With the use of these three rhetorical strategies, she succeeds in getting the reader to comprehend every girl’s right to an education. Throughout the novel, Yousafzai gets her point across by utilizing influential ethos and describing how difficult it was for a girl to attend school in peace. For instance, in the novel, Yousafzai states “The trips from school became tense and frightening, and I just wanted to relax once I was safe inside my home”. (Yousafzai,pg.62) This quote is included so the reader will be able to perceive how she and the
• Visual: the teacher uses a lot of visual representations for Ashely; this is used to help her understand better example when the teacher wants Ashely to sit she uses a picture of someone sitting on a chair. When Ashely sees this picture she immediately sits down. Children with autism learn faster and with greater ease when you use visuals. When doing this the teacher must remember to help keep explanations simple and short about each picture or concentration will vanish. • Schedule: the teacher has a daily schedule which is important for Ashely.
Dockterman builds up her argument to persuade her audience by including facts to support her opinion. Dockterman includes facts from studies that have been involved with children developing with technology, like M I T. The facts support and help develop Dockterman’s opinion by stating how giving kids the advantages of technology can help them learn at a younger age and stay up to date with different ways of applying to jobs/colleges. At the beginning of Dockterman’s essay she includes statistics showing how much technology effects children now in everyday life. She also then points out how there are many parents sending their children to camps for a technology detox. Dockterman gives examples of how parents are pushing their children away
In the essay "The Digital Parent Trap" by Elina Docktermank, Elina presented an argument about the advantages of technology when used by kids from the age of 3-18. Throughout the essay, she used many different techniques to strengthen her essay and persuade the readers. `One of the first way that she used to make her essay more creditable is by citing creditable sources. First she used a quote from Mimi Ito, an anthropologist at the University of California at Irvine that 's studying how technology affects young adults, "They 're no longer limited by what 's offered in school". This makes the reader think that having technology no longer limit students to what is taught in school but rather we can have all the information in the world at
I recently had the pleasure of attending the Headsprout Brown Bag discussion during which Dr. Janet Twyman explained her innovative teaching system in detail. The program was created by a group of behavior analysts to teach early reading and literacy skills to children using applied behavior analysis. I took a particular interest in the ideology behind Headsprout since I am highly interested in working towards widespread implementation of similar programs in my future work. Having absolutely no knowledge of automated or computerized program development, my favorite part of the discussion was learning about the nuances involved in creating quality programming. The outcome of every student response seemed to be highly detailed and well thought
This Would relate to communication because I am taking and fallowing directions While doing the senior project my friend and I are in the same field so me and mike switch jobs. Every month I switched from student store to the cafeteria. Every month or two me and mike switch. It’s a good way to get more experience for the working field.
I worked with my school nurse, Brenda this week; she was wonderful. I was able to find my student for the IHP and have their mother sign the permission slip; therefore, I was able to start interviewing my student. My student is a very sweet; 12-year-old Type 1 Diabetic. During the interview, I looked at my student holistically; by thinking about who she is as a whole and why she may behave in certain ways. I also thought about ways I can promote, maintain, and restore health for this student.
First off, when she started talking to the kids, she would say “Okay Friends.” Both the teachers use a very pleasant tone of voice for the kids. Mrs. Wendy would always talk to the children and start conversations with them. She would ask the kids’ educational questions like “What color is this Lego?” When the children answered correctly, she would give them good praise. According to Jeanne M. Machado, “positive feedback is recommended for adults who live or work with two- and three-year-old. (78)” Positive feedback is important in the early learning year of their life.
When we taught together I do recall her having a heavy focus on vocabulary in her science class. She developed a vocabulary game called, “Last Man Standing” to help the kids not only understand vocabulary words, but also the parts of words. I always saw the positive impact it had on students’ success, but never understood why she had such a heavy focus on it. After our interview I now understand the why and it makes perfectly good sense. I then began to wonder what strategies could we, as a school, provide for our parents to help them support their child’s vocabulary development?
Cheryl Dobbertin’s Just How I Need to Learn It discusses how it is essential that students should know where they lie, regarding pre-assessments for lessons. I think her article is great and I love how this middle school math teacher implements this station teaching into her classroom. I would use this method of reflecting on pre-assessments in my classroom, because I agree that it is important for students to reflect on their placements in learning. It actually reminds me of students doing a KWL chart on themselves: what do I know, what do I want to know, and what did I learn. Students are honest about not knowing what denominators are, or mixed numbers, etc.
What’s a coincident Maria, I noticed from reviewing your subject’s profile that both our subjects have several things in common. Both like to read “The Diary of Wimpy Kid.” Both don’t like to read at play time. They like to watch T.V., and both are eager to be better in reading. It’s great that Sarah is one of your students so you get to work with her constantly; at the meantime you shall notice the improvement in different areas. You mentioned that the school offer support and assistance for her as an ELL students, that a wonderful and helpful!
Every day, Vinny’s teacher Ms. Sam send me in his notebook what he ate and drank, and if he was happy or not, then I sent her an email asking her about what he is doing and learning, so than we can reinforce at home, she answered the email and told me that she will send me for the all week what Vinny is learning, also, according with her email, Vinny is learning how to counting from 1 to
Rowe sets aside funding for teachers to observe other teachers to build instructional leaders and increase collaborations. One of the parent contacted the school regarding their child recording a video in class where the teacher is not doing his job and allow students to roam everywhere in the classroom. One of the AP visited the classroom and observed that the teacher is having issue managing his classroom. The approach of not confronting the teacher directly to preserve his dignity is very thoughtful at building trust and relationship. I think it is clever to have the teacher identify the students that he might need support and free up the teacher schedule to observe other teacher with the same student.
