10) The following instructional strategies used in the properties of multiplication lesson: • Modeling- The teacher wrote on the board what she wanted the students to write in their math journals. 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 students can absorb any information from other students who have a diverse cultural background. In the video, students were able to convey to their groupmates about the math problem. 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.
Aside from art I am determined in my classroom studies as well. 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 I
You and your class has really taught me how to write more proficiently. 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.
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. Chapter One –Badlands (7-15) Esquith states that he offers “sugarcoated advice” (7) to new teachers but he really wants new teachers to know is that there will be bad days.
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 am really enjoying at Metro South, and I will be enjoying at Metro South, that changed into more fantastic school, in the near
However, in high school, I changed my mind. 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.
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.
