I notice that each classroom had a computer station, group collaboration table, a whiteboard, floor rug, cubbies, a projector, a library area and of course a teacher desk. While observing classrooms and creating these arrangements, I decided a supply table, laptop case, and a safe desk should be added to my classrooms. A teacher’s desk gives me my own personal area to gather my thoughts and come up with great lesson plans. I created a safe desk because it is a part of my consequences. Giving students a spot where they can separate themselves from the rest of the group allows them to refocus themselves.
Talking circles are not meant to replace traditional whole-class or small group discussion but to present a different form of discussion. During my first semester of the graduate program I took a foundation course in which professor used the talking circle in every classroom session. I observed the discussion format created platform for all students to equally participate in the classroom talk. I consider myself an active participant in the traditional classroom discussion but at times, given the intensity of the topic I would keep quiet and observe my peers discussing. However, in talking circle I realized there was literally no scope of avoiding class participation as every student would eventually share their thoughts in sequence that would promote equitable discussion and participation.
More often the students takes test in class, they will study more and will space their studying throughout the semester rather than concentrating it just before exams. Test has a powerful positive effect on future retention. In early laboratory studies, research subjects memorized lists of words. After this initial memorization period, some subjects were asked to recall as many words as they could and other subjects were given additional
I assume she calls them to a certain instrument so they can play a different instrument each time and sit next to someone else because they have a seating chart on the floor. In general, Mrs. Pollard’s class management during discussions involves a lot of taking turns and if someone talks too much or does not let others answer she will ask them to stop. They know these routines because she set them in place when the class first started. Mrs. Pollard told our observation group that the first classes are important because that is when the rules and routines are set up. Her most common classroom management techniques were eye contact, “the look”, and using student
An educator’s mindset should always be to think about the different levels of abilities of the children and how to get them to personally grasp what is being taught based on their learning needs. The lesson activities from the Germ/Health lesson was straight forward and clear. The students are to draw a picture of what they think a germ looks like to create a monster so they can share with the class. Then they will write a sentence of how to catch germs based on their understanding of the teacher’s definition and the book that was read aloud. In the Class Profile there is a student that is visually impaired and another that has hearing aids.
Imagine you are at your desk at school doing your schoolwork. While you’re sitting there your furry little pet is sitting in your lap. Even if you don’t have a pet you could be petting your friends pet. Wouldn’t this be great if it were true? Pets should be allowed in school and as classroom pets because, they can show affection towards students to help student’s education, it could make students feel more at home, and students wouldn't be so stressed all the time.
It sounds cheesy but we formed through a computer science class. Where we had all types of music and all types of interests. Although we properly would have formed into a nerds group since intelligence was one of the similar traits of our group, also because our friendship formed through a computer science class. We had people from almost every group, there was a jock who
Different schools have different classes depending on the teachers around and how many students want to take it. For example a school may have a class on robotics, whereas another school may not have that class, but a mechanic class. The classes I take depend on what I want to do with my life later. Academic success is really also about my engagement in academic learning, If I’m not engaged I will not learn as well as if im fully dedicated and ready to learn. I find it easier for me to learn if I can relate the subject to another thing I am fluent with.
The interpersonal learners will enjoy doing group work such the must writing and preforming a play about a given subject matter within the unit. Math and logical learns will enjoy more problem solving approaches in math and science experiments. Linquistic learns will write stores about what they are studing and for my visual spatial learners lots of art work, graphs and charts aroud about the room and in lessons for them to do. Outside ot the classroom I will collabrate with other teachers for ideas to make learning new and fun for my
It enabled me to interact with variety of students, communicate with their parents, and negotiate with faculty members and administration of hospital. It also enabled me to learn how to maintain students’ records, preparing tests and question papers, conducting exams, viva voce and in the preparation of results. I was also given a chance to work as clinical instructor which was a completely different experience from classroom teaching. As an educator I acknowledged that learners encompass diverse array of learning styles such as visual, auditory, readers and kinaesthetic. Some learn better in a small group and some learn by problem solving.
This determined my time management based on interests outside of school. Personally, I enjoyed a broad range of classes which invoked me into joining intellectual groups. Such as Knowledge Bowl, Chess Club, Student Council, Mathletes, and Theater. To conclude, Gatto has reasonable points, yet needs to broaden his train of thought to include other aspects that are important to dealing with the schooling issue. Which would be expanding The Seven Lesson Schoolteacher to consist of counter arguments, including how to change what’s wrong with the system, along with more factual evidence as my thesis specified.
Math 105, is pretty much what I expected in the beginning. I thought that at about midterms I’d be challenged and have some struggles to get through the rest of the class. This is exactly what happened, but I came with a positive attitude and believe I will learn what is necessary to make this a successful course in my education. The most useful success strategy I implemented in week 1 of the college algebra course is to stay determined. I get confused and sometimes I even give up and must come back and work harder to understand a concept, such as figuring out the vertex of a parabola.
Therefore, LLRC can be useful for students to succeed their educational goals. Primarily, LLRC provides a convenient and comfortable place for students to learn. Besides lectures, students can come to the library or Learning Resource Center to study on their own. It is convenience for students to study in LLRC because some students may not want to study at home or a café. For instance, there are individual tables that students can use for self-study such as doing math homework, reading books, or writing an essay.
This class would be mainly rooted in class discuss, I would help by providing questions or clips to help spark the conversation but I would hope it would be environment where people wanted to share their opinions and discuss with their classmates with help from me, the professor. There would be minimal test and grades would be more based on reflections, papers, and conversations had in class. As for materials, I would want to use a large range of different types of media. I would want to start the class off with Chapter 12: Great Rock and Roll Pauses of Jennifer Egan’s book A Visit from the Goon Squad. The
In nursing school, we are taught to learn about culture consideration but we can only remember so many since there are a lot of different cultures out there. One way I think that can help to have a better understanding regarding different culture is having an online class for it. In Children Hospital they offer different classes through Powerpoint for nurses that want to have a better understanding about certain topic. At the end of the class, there will be a quiz for you to take to pass the class. With these classes, you can take it whenever you want and by simply logging into your work account.
