EFV GMA Task 1: A1. Describe the target behavior: When given a non-preferred task, specifically a difficult independent work involving reading comprehension or math problem solving by his 4th grade general education teacher in Dexter’s classroom, Dexter 9 out 10 times flaps his hands speaks loudly and refuses to do the task until he is removed from class. Thereby avoiding all steps of completing the work. A2. Determine the antecedents/triggers for the target behavior: Prior to the target behavior, his 4th grade teacher in the classroom assigns a task to complete on his own that is challenging for Dexter involving reading comprehension or math problem solving.
The Highly Gifted Magnet student is one who is of high IQ compared to the rest of the human population. The ways of the HGM student are an enigma. At the beginning of the day, an hour before school begins at 8, he is often found in front of his first period classroom, doing homework that was assigned to him a week ago. During his first few periods, the HGM student is only half awake, as he spends his nights whiling away in front of his computer, juggling video games and social media with studying. The probability is high that he takes a nap or two during first and second period in order to avoid fatigue, after which he is offered a brief reprieve called nutrition.
I also introduce myself to his mother. Before the parents leave we have to ask the children’s parents if there is something specific that the child needs to work on. In this case, his mother told me that he had to complete a multiplication worksheet and reading silently. The homework tutoring is one hour long and within that hour, the students have to stay focused and on task and complete as much homework as they can. When my student’s mother left the room, I asked him “So what are we going to work on today”?
However Mr. Donahue approach him and remind him about the class room rules and ask him if he was making a right choice; the boy immediately stop. While they rotating from one activity to another some teachers came to the classroom to take some students; they were pull
8 am on the first day of school, I sat looking around my classroom at walls covered with welcoming art, shelves filled with materials, nestled inside colorful bins adorned with new picture labels, diminishing the curiosity of what’s inside. My eyes shifted to the large oval shaped rug with vivid blocked colors where past students sat during our story time and group writings, trying not to spill their milk on the rug while eagerly waving their hands, in want of answering the question, “ Do you think the man should let the penguin drive the bus?” “What do you think happened to the baby BeBe bird?” I cannot help but to chuckle thinking about a past reading, “The Milk Makers” by Gail Gibbons, when students were asked, “Could you name a food made from milk?” One
This was my first time ever being in some trouble, so it really startled me. I was sitting in an old wooden brown chair as I was waiting on my principal to get done with a conference with another student. It was so quiet in there I could hear the bird chirping and the crickets clicking. So many things were going through my head. Am I going to get suspended?
For the next month, Debate became my haven from the heat and annoying people in math. I learned how to construct a logical argument, how to write an impassioned speech, and how to hold myself with confidence. This is where I met my good friends Zac, Sydney, and Tiarrah. I felt like I had found my place. I eventually switched into Debate and a new math class, and stopped cutting class.
The little boy laughs while an older boy teases him with a toy. I also see him interact with another child for the first time when he tells a little girl about the instructions the teacher has given. The little boy and girl then go to the carpet and take out a skeleton puzzle to do. But after being told multiple times to be quiet, they were told to clean up and read a book instead. The boy and his friend (girl) are separated because they still whisper to each other while reading.
Based off the groups on our survey, I can think of a way each of them are portrayed in at least one aspect of the media off the top of my head. Immediately the movie Mean Girls comes to mind. When Cady arrives at the school, she is shown around and learns the ropes of school from her new friends. In the lunchroom we see many stereotypical groups including the “Smart Asians” doing their homework over lunch, dressed in a dress shirt and tie with a pocket protector. Again, in another movie called 21 Jump Street we see a black man portrayed as a cop named Captain Dickson.
I then played a YouTube video that explains PEMDAS but it was also an attention getter. Then I went to the main lesson which I did on the white board and I started with simple two step problems and got up to the four step problems with the parentheses so they could see me do it. After I was done, I had each student come up a couple of time to check their understanding of it, to me they seem to get it really well. I sent them home with homework to post assess them on the following Wednesday when I came back, I was surprised when they turned in the homework on how well they
He later changed his profession to teach English Language and Literature at Oxford, where he remained until his retirement in 1959. He also met several new friends at Oxford, some of which were Owen Barfield, Charles Williams, and Clive Staples Lewis. Together, they formed a group called The Inklings, and would meet regularly to chat and discuss what they were currently writing. It was also during this time that J. R. R. Tolkien first began writing one of his most famous novels, The Hobbit. While grading the examination papers of a student, he noticed that they had left an answer page blank.
He entered his apartment and left his coat and bag at the door before sitting down at his computer and loading his Memory Shifting. “Three hours on inane memories and 55 minutes of memory for review.” Jerry read quietly to himself. Jerry looked at the memory for review as it was writing the Anderson report and the bus ride to the bar. Jerry decided to shift the Anderson report and keep the bus ride. “Three and a half hours in memory to be shifted.” Jerry shifted in three and half hours of the book he is reading.
He was an excellent student in math, and strive to do as well in writing and reading. His teacher Ms. Lucas tutored him in English. Even while he was recovering from surgery she still came to tutor him. His reading level that year rose two letters from a B to a D. She has since then passed away, and he wish he got to know her better. Devin accredits Ms. Lucas for him wanting to pursue a career in education, and become a teacher.
Immediately when Nicholas walked through those doors he saw hordes of 7th/8th graders and a few teachers walking through the long hallways. Nicholas went to his first class and sat down at what he thought was his desk, but before he sat down a kid pushed him out of the way and said “Seat taken,”as the whole class laughed. Nicholas was very embarrassed sitting on the floor with all those kids laughing around him. Mrs.Heinig walked into the room and said “Stop everyone and get in your seats!” Yelled Mrs Heinig “What 's your name?” Mrs.Heinig then said in a calming voice. “It’s Nicholas” he said shyly.
