This was appropriate for third graders to help them develop note taking skills. • Arrays- The teacher drew various arrays on the board to demonstrate how to solve the mathematical sentences. This is a strategy that is used in teaching elementary math to give students a deeper understanding of multiplication. • Independent practice- Students were given several different problems to solve on their own.
The mathematics teacher was walking around the classroom, assessing how well the students
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.
In order to maintain good grades I make sure I do all my homework and I take notes in class. When I find myself struggling I find out what steps I can take to help me understand my schoolwork. This year
Writing in English 101 is very similar to writing in your class. In English 101 we have to come in ready to work because that class is nothing but hard work. Here we have to do rough drafts, peer reviews and homework that helps us out with our writing form and getting new ideas. It is just like your class back in senior year. The only thing we do different is that my teacher here does is she sets up individual meetings to go over rough drafts and how we can make our paper better and start writing authority and persuasiveness.
My Reflection of Real Talk for Real Teachers Real Talk for Real Teachers written by Rafe Esquith has been thought provoking as well as entertaining to read. I have learned a great deal from reading this book and I hope to implement a few of his ways in my future classroom. I can relate too many of the stories that have been told in this book because this is real life in a school environment. I would like to break my summary down chapter by chapter.
While watching the film, The Finland Phenomena, I learned how their education system works. One thing that I did find admirable was that students are trusted to do work on their own time, at their own pace. Also, they are told to do their own thinking and later express it to the class and the teacher will make corrections as they go. Basically, they learn from their mistakes in which I would like to use in my classroom if it isn’t too time consuming. I believe that students learn best from their mistakes if they see it in many forms.
This mindset sometimes urges you to prove yourself over and over. If you have a fixed mindset you think you have a certain amount of intelligence, personality and moral character. This urges you to prove that you are actually as smart as you think. For example you are having a bad day and you come to a class that you really enjoy. Your professor hands you your exam and you got a C+.
I have taken classes, and I have felt lacking in something when I move to the new class. It’s probably because I move in the middle of our material, that each teacher teaches us in detail, such as academically vocabularies, prefixes, roots, spelling, etc. It means that I have to study the rest of them myself, so I suggest to put not only materials but also some information magazine about college or job in the computer room or possible place and to be able to see the materials freely. Therefore, I propose informing students to keep clean school, making a comfortable school, and putting the materials in the possible place to improve education to Metro South.
I started working with the special education students for part of my day at school. I would help the students with their homework or I would sit in class with them. After a short period of time I fell in love. I knew I wanted to change my major and begin teaching students who have special needs. Another reason that made me want to teach special education is because my brother is autistic.
I would use this day to allow the students to have independent work and practice time to work on the different properties that we studied during the week. I would have 4-5 activities picked out and ready for the students to work on. The first activity that I would have the students work on is an instructional math game on the laptops. The game is from Math Blaster and explains to students that a+b=b+a (commutative property), and then provides an example of this with numbers; (example- 3+6=9 and 6+3=9 or 9-6=3). Students would also be able to do an instructional computer game on the Associative property of addition.
The most important quality in becoming a successful USMA cadet and Army officer is being able to reflect on one's flaws and strive for self-improvement. As an active member and teacher in my church, I had the responsibility of supervising and teaching the younger children about biblical passages and elucidating certain concepts. These duties proved arduous as the children would often become stubborn and refused to listen. Too stubborn to try and understand the root of their lackadaisical attitudes, I believed it was their inability as students to learn that was to blame. However, it wasn’t until a fellow teacher enlightened me that I was able to see my mistakes of shifting blame to others.
Baseball has always been called a game of mistakes. When you are batting you fail more often than not. You are considered a great player if you succeed only a third of the time. Yet to succeed, you must move past your failure and forget about it. When in the field you are likely to make an error at some point, it happens to everyone, it's about clearing your mind and moving on.
