In order to make assessment data useful teachers must understand what information is being reported and determine if additional information is necessary to understand student performance. Specifically, for assessment results for students with disabilities, teachers would have to identify what accommodations were being used. Also it might be helpful to find out if those scores were included in the schools improvement index.
A classroom should be filled with a wide variety of languages, experiences, and cultural diversity. An effective teacher understands the importance of culturally responsive teaching, and recognizes the significance of including students ' cultural references in all aspects of learning. Having an enriching classroom that engages all students does not mean making judgments about a student’s culture based on their skin color, gender, or socioeconomic status, rather it means knowing each student in a way that is individualized. According to the authors of The First Day of School: How to be an Effective Teacher Harry Wong, race, gender, religion, financial statue, and skin color is the least important factor determining a student’s achievement. Moreover, demographics and culture are not an excuse for students’ lack of achievement. (pg.80) Acknowledging and embracing a student’s racial or ethnic background is important, but it is just a piece of the educational puzzle. Effective teachers must be culturally responsive, with fine-tuned classroom management skills, and high expectations for all their students.
Measuring outcomes is a vital element proceeding evidence-based intervention measures because it ensures that the intended purpose of the interventions has been met. To certain that a program is effective requires evaluation, which is supported by the strength and reliability of the proposed intervention. The goal of implementing the intervention: The Beat diabetes and new leaf for AA programs aimed at reducing the incidence rate of diabetes as indicators of positive outcomes that the preventive measures are effective (Ricci-Cabello, et. al., 2013). The principal evaluation measures for AA at risk for T2DM with the new leaf intervention program will be an improvement of hemoglobin (Hg) A.1c measure (below 6.5%),
To ensure the wireless signal is transmitted to every corner of the office space I recommend routers set-up with 4 directional antennas and a centralized Omni-directional antenna. The use of 2.4 GHz routers will increase data transmission speed 460-600 Mbps and provide 11 channels per router to support decrease in network collisions and prevent data packet from being dropped (Lazar, n.d.). All computing devices must be equipped with latest Windows 10 for business and use VPN tunnels to remotely connect and send print jobs to the Austin location. In addition, all workstations must manually be configured with the latest printer drivers to recognize the device.
In reference to group size they should look for a ratio between 1:3 and 1:6. Caregivers should be trained and experienced in working in a child care setting. In addition, the caregiver should be nurturant, supportive, and responsive to children’s cues. Staffing- low staff turnover, staff support, and only one or two caregivers should be responsible for the same child. Curriculum- planned in advance and emphasis on development. Parents should be informed about the child’s day and any special problems or achievements. Faculty- should be clean, bright, safe, and have lots of room for toddlers to move about (Fogel,
There are various cultural differences that teachers are likely to come across culturally diverse classrooms including Gender, Age, Cognition, Norms, beliefs, Primary language, Exceptionality, Cultural heritage, Socio-economic status, Opinions, ideas, Attitudes, Expectations, Behavioral styles, Geography, Learning styles, Communication Styles, Decision making styles, Ways of Communicating Non-verbally, Ways of Learning, Ways of Dealing with Conflict, Ways of Using Symbols and Approaches to completing tasks etc.
Due to a plain text file being found on a workstation in the root of the C: drive saying “hacked by KDC”, a small police department’s IT department has been asked to identify three potential penetration testing tools, and contrast them for possible purchase and implementation. The following information is intended to persuade the Police Chief to sign off and implement one of the three tools. The key capabilities and benefits of each are listed, along with some disadvantages or limitations, and penetration tool usage.
Let me give you a little bit of background on the project, and particularly why I am here at Tri-C. I don’t know how familiar you are with some changes in developmental and first year undergraduate mathematics. It used to be that everyone took courses that were kind of on a calculus track, even though they were never going to take calculous unless that fit unto their major. So, they took classes like college algebra, finite math and trig, just because we have been teaching them for decades.
Over the course of the past two semesters I have been studying under Paul Johnston in an effort to better my skills as a recording engineer, mixing engineer and producer. From the beginning, I didn’t have a clear outcome for what I had hoped to accomplish by the end of the course. This was the source of some problems for me because there were some moments where I felt like I was flying blind. Starting down a path with no clear end is difficult after all. I didn’t have a set goal for myself other than learning all I could from Paul, which is a broad goal. That being said, I learned from a lot about myself because of it. I also learned a lot from Paul.
The profession of teaching can be challenging at times. It is a constant juggling act of ongoing responsibilities; including classroom management, engagement, and curriculum. Add in the prospect of teaching multiple students with special needs and it is downright overwhelming. Still, special education is one responsibility that we cannot afford to get wrong. Instruction can play a significant part in their prospective outcomes. Therefore we need to develop a well-defined philosophy regarding special education that considers the laws, your beliefs, and feelings related to working with students with exceptionalities. To become a better educator, I have developed my own personal philosophy with those considerations
My teaching philosophy stems from my belief that the gauge of a teacher 's success is how effectively the teacher prepares students, not only for present courses, but for their future professional careers. As a Nurse, I am committed to the nursing profession and I chose nursing since; nurses have the chance to a life changing event to every patient. Nurses promote Health Education, Healing and Prevention of Illness, as well as performing end of life care through a dignified death. I chose to be a nurse because I wanted to contribute to humanity, to feel that the world was in some small way, better because I was a part of it.
In this paper I will be discussing the problem, resolutions and my personal opinion on the ethical implications of grading international students. International students are an important part of the US university system. The international students bring a new perspective into each of the course discussions as well as help us understand different cultures around the world. There are several problems that can arise when grading and giving feedback to international students. Whether it's grading writing or speaking there are many ethical problems that could occur. Throughout my college experience I have seen an increase in international students in my upper college courses. I have had the opportunity to work in several different group projects
English-language learners (ELLs) with special needs belong to a minority group and require specific direction for educators on how to help these students in the school context and how to help to improve their educational outcomes. This is one of the most important topics in the field of education in the USA. The main issue of the teachers is to decrease the achievement gap between ELLs and their peers. Though, the educational needs of ELLs are diverse and rather complicated. English language learners face many obstacles due to their cultural and linguistic diversity. Meanwhile, ELLs with special needs have additional obstacles that influence their education such as cultural and linguistic differences as well as disabilities. Consequently, it is quite difficult task for educators to teach such children.
The American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and The Center for Parent Information and Resources are both good websites that explains Intellectual Disabilities. According to the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, an “intellectual disability is a disability characterized by significant limitations both in intellectual functioning (reasoning, learning, problem solving) and in adaptive behavior, which covers a range of everyday social and practical skills. This disability originates before the age of 18 (AAIDD - Resources for Intellectual and Developmental Disability Professionals, n.d).” Intellectual disability is one of the most common developmental disability. It is estimated that
