1. In the identified video in ATLAS (Case #2454), the mathematics teacher did a great job in making sure he used cultural appropriateness in his learning outcomes. You can tell from the video that the teacher made sure that everything was out in the open. This mathematics teacher used cultural appropriateness by allowing the students to work in groups to help each other with the math problems. This allows the students to be productive with students of a different culture.
1 BPT1501 Assignment 04 UNISA student number: 57342709 Unique assignment number: 867207 2 Context Cover page: page 1 Context page: page 2 Observation Essay: page 3 to page 4 Photo collage: page 5 Story on photo collage: page 6 Plagiarism report: page 7 Permission letter: page 8 3 Observation: I did a five day observation in a 00 class at a nursery school. I observed many interesting and valuable teaching concepts. The classroom environment has a very bright and welcoming atmosphere and has a lot of natural light. There are nine learners in the class with five girls and four boys- a very diverse group of children. There are three tables in the classroom and three children are sat at each- the learner’s sticker
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.
In the book, “Homer Economicus: The Simpsons and Economics”, Joshua Hall, evidently focuses on seeing microeconomics in a more diverse and fun way by relating it to the popular television show, The Simpsons. The book begins with explaining the construction of the plot. As a substitute professor, Hall wondered what he wanted his students to learn and how he was going to teach them. Shortly after showing multiple snippets of episodes in class, in order to better convey economics to the students, he realized there was a connection between microeconomics and The Simpsons. Students from his class were relating the show to their better understanding of material learned in class.
By the age of 18, Emmy Noether finally decided to take courses in mathematics at the University of her birthplace, Erlangen. Coincidentally, her brother Fritz had been attending there as a student, along with her father, rightfully being a professor of mathematics. Bibliography Noether then decided to get certified to teach English and French in schools for girls in 1900, but she instead chose because she knew she enjoyed this subject which is mathematics. She went to study math at the university of
The students will discuss their nationality, family values and other important factors of themselves. 27 minutes. Day two 1. The teacher will restate the lesson the students were previously working on and explain the entire class period will consist of their researching the student they pick. The students will pick out a computer to do the research.
The teacher went through all the stages giving the proper time to each one; without wasting any time. The students were always engaged and were doing the tasks in the time limit established by the teacher. The best examples of concept checking questions I extracted are from a peer’s class. The teacher, after each task, asked simple and concise questions to perfectly check the meaning (when introducing new vocabulary), and the context (after each task). After the questions, the students had the context clear.
Journal - Day 1 So far the experience is going very well. I met my cooperating teacher and we talked about different stuff on what and what not to do. During some free time I was memorizing students’ names and where they were sitting out. My cooperating teacher has a clipboard with pictures of the students faces from last years school book and where they are sitting at on sheets of paper. We also exchanged phone numbers and reporting time is at 7:20 and dismissal is anywhere from 2 - 4:20.
Many schools classify students into categories such as honors or non honors. My school uses the honors and non honors system. To enter as a seventh grade honors student you must have As in science and English and a teacher recommendation for math. That is the only way to become an honors student at my school. Although this system may be beneficial to some students, it may be harmful to others.
She would also speak about the information on the slides as she went through them. This technique is advantageous to someone who is a visual and/or auditory learner. Similarly, near the end of the class the students pulled out their course readings and talked about the homework the instructor had assigned for that night. Students could look at at assignment and hear what they were expected to do to successfully complete the tasks. In Engl 99R the professor would draw pictures on the chalkboard that accompany his lessons.
Students would also be able to do an instructional computer game on the Associative property of addition. Students would learn and become familiar with the Order of Operations and understand that they must do the work that is in the parentheses before continuing with the remainder of the problem. Another fun activity that the students could do for independent practice is ‘Fact Family Homes’. For this activity, students would be given three numbers; 2, 5, and 7; they would practice the addition first- 2+5=7 and 5+2=7 and then the subtraction- 7-2=5 and 7-5=2. The teacher would make six of these little homes on a worksheet and have different numbers and equations for the students to solve.
The main topic that I thought was interesting is the mathematical language that they use in the experiment. In using the correct mathematical language the three students Ashley, Olivia, and Tyler were all able to show the problem they were being asked by drawing it out. They had a hard time with explaining it verbally. Giving the students the ability to have the freedom to draw the picture on their own gives them the ability to have a better understanding of the problem. I also agree with Cwikla when she tells about the precurricular understanding.
Circles aren’t typically part of the pattern blocks but it has been added for this assessment and lesson. Their shape mobiles will also be formally assessed as this displays their ability to sort and compare the four different shapes discussed in the lesson. A rubric is provided at the end of the lesson detailing how to assess the students using both the pattern blocks and the shape mobile. Rubric Shapes Advanced: Students compare and sort circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles by including 4 of each shape on their Shape Mobile. Proficient: Students compare and sort circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles by including 3 of each shape on their Shape Mobile.
He allows the class to lead the discussion that empowered them to become involved in the learning process. The classroom was extremely respectful of other student’s opinions and even when they disagreed were able to reach an agreement. Questions were accepted and carefully considered in his classroom. The overall experience in his classroom is extremely positive. He promotes a positive learning experience and includes all of the students.
Then it was that year when it was a dramatic change in the standards for all classes. Common Core was introduced, and soon we were being taught stuff that was taught in the eighth grade before. My grades dropped horribly, and it was really hard to catch up. Today, it is okay for me, as I’m in classes where they take it step by step and explain in a way that we all understand, including me. I’d like to thank you for a copy of your book Autodidactic and for coming to speak to us at the Helene Galen Performing Arts Center at Rancho Mirage High School.
