Mrs. Kreglow observes her students thorough out the whole day and keeps notes using the ClassDojo app and sticky notes. The teacher asks questions through the class and sees and takes notes as to who raises their hands the most and who does not. She asks open ended questions and calls on students who do not raise their hand to see how they explain something. She notices their frustration if they do not know what the answer is or what to say. She especially observes her students during their one on one time while the student reads from a book.
Students were in the middle of a reading lesson. They were working on a story called “The half chicken”. The teacher selected a student to read aloud while the rest of the class followed the story in silent. Then, after each paragraph, the teacher asked students questions about the actions that took place in the story and the characteristics of the main character. It was quite pleasant to see that most of the students were eager to answer.
They will take the initiative to speak at the beginning. On the contrary, introverts leave room for others to talk and speak when they feel necessary, such as when they are asked or when they want to correct some mistakes with their expertise. And when there is silence during the meeting, an extrovert would want to fill the gap by talking, on the other hand, an introvert would spend the quiet time thinking about the discussion before. It’s the case in our class, when the professor asked questions during class, most of the time the same outgoing classmates answered. And it’s more obvious during the simulation process in the last week.
Roots of formal education at an academy from grade school where the class room was set up with everything on the walls such as class projects, the ABC’s, children’s names, chalk boards, and the American Flag. There is a teacher and an overhead projector to view and learn various subjects. Math, Science, English, and History challenged my ideas while the teacher taught the different concepts. Hands on learning involved reading and writing, turning in assignments, and taking tests so the teacher could evaluate my competency. I have seen the class room community all my life, what is it, the educational world.
You’re sitting in class and your teacher begins to handout a test that you forgot about. How bad could it be just to glance at someone else’s paper next to you? Many people use resources such as people, the internet, and more things that should not be used in most school situations, almost regularly to get through their school career. Because of habitual cheating, honor codes are implemented in many different schools. Honor codes are sets of rules that are put in place to keep students honorable while going throughout their academic career.
The teacher adopted the role as the host of the quiz, to see if all the students participate. The whole class was divided into two large groups, in this case, boys and girls. They had to compete on guessing the meaning of words that they got from the listening. The teacher had all the words, so one student had to take one word from the teacher and used it in a sentence in English, and then the other members of
First, if the student is unable to do basic arithmetic or simple math operations, much of the class is dominated with correcting these errors. I have noticed that this pulls away from having deep conversations and higher-level thinking during the class. Second, math problems and questions build to a larger objective. It often takes many small steps to find an answer. These smaller steps lead to little knowledge check opportunities for the teacher to do an informal assessment.
As I am currently teaching an after school tutorial lessons in my previous school so I have more chance to hang with some of the senior students that is facing the public exam.During the teaching I found that many psychological strategies would possibly be applied to our daily life. I was a secondary school student just a few years ago too.I can understand that assignments and tests thought may seem good to student which urge them to study,it would somehow disturb a student 's study plan and cause a huge stress when those things start to stack.So in the first few lessons, I tried to create a more relaxing atmosphere and pressure-free environment for them.I did not use strong words to coerce them to do revision and I paid the price,none of them can turn what I have tough into a long-term memory .But with some hacks that I have learnt from the psychology lesson now, I would now manage my class better and I would observe some psychological phenomenon. According to the operant conditioning, reinforcements could solidify the intended behaviors and the punishment could eliminate the unintended behaviors(“Operant conditioning,” 2016) .In order to reduce the repulsion towards studying for them.I tend to use positive reinforcement such as using candy or some soft drinks to treat them if they have done the revision before the lesson and show concentrated in class and only give minor positive punishment such as asking them to explain some easier concepts to other students
The classroom I observed on November 5th, 2015 was Mrs. Anderson 1st grade classroom. My observation took place at Fairmount Elementary school. The assessments Mrs. Anderson used to evaluate the effectiveness of her instructions after they were given to the students was that, after she was doing presenting the instructions to the students she went and walked around the classroom to make sure that all of the students were doing what they were supposed to and be sure they were following the directions they were given. Most of the time, when the students were not following the instructions they were given it was their choice of action and Mrs. Anderson would ask them politely if that’s how they were supposed to be completing the assignment. The assessments that were used during a lesson was all the students sitting around Mrs. Anderson while she was explaining what needed to be done to complete the assignment they were next in line to do.
I felt mad because I had to start my lesson plan and instructional materials again. Mr. Garcia assigned a new topic and it was about angle of elevation and depression.My cooperating teacher and I were going over research and planning the demo in our vacant time which was very helpful. When we are done in the concept of the lesson, we showed it to the head of math department to know if she has a suggestions or comment. She told me to have a differentiated activity in the lesson for the slow and fast learner and the examples included in the lesson must be localized.In addition, she told me to show my lesson plan to one of the English teacher, for the checking of the grammar. At first I don’t have idea on how to include that on my topic but Mr. Garcia gave me an idea on how I apply the differentiated activity.
