The article, “Never Say Anything a Kid Can Say,” by Steven C. Reinhart that was published in 2000 was quite an interesting read. Throughout this article, the author explained a teaching technique that he thought was the most effective for students to learn the most. He explained that it was a process; it wasn’t a technique that could be implemented and accomplished within a few days. The main idea of this philosophy was to have the students do the explaining and the teacher do the listening, which is completely opposite of the normal classroom setting.
A Liberal Studies Education is a broad spectrum of information that expands the knowledge of the students. This education provides a foundation of knowledge in many subjects for instance language art, math, history, science, art and physical education. With that said Liberal Studies allows students to create new theories and connections between fields. In order for Liberal Studies Majors to have new theories and connections it very important to have some kind of structure. A well organized structure is ensuring lessons teach the curriculum but also convey your own theories and connections, this is where lesson planning comes in. A writing sample that

I think it 's good that you had a great host teacher that has only been teaching for four years. Some people have told me before in order to be a great teacher it comes with a lot of years of experience. Rachel that 's how my host teacher is when it comes to talking to me if i ask to talk to her anytime she is available and make time.My host teacher has given me her cell phone number, her extenstion in school, and email to answer any questions. That is so nice what your host teacher is doing for you because many teachers will not do it. I have had teachers turn me down for interviews and observations. My host teacher who i have now was willing to help me. I didn 't know that teachers are constant putting lesson plan together I wonder how
I find that preparing some items that the students will use in the lesson beforehand makes lessons flow better. In addition, preparing some lesson items alleviates stressors that both the teacher and the student may feel while learning in the classroom environment. Ms. Zavada believes that the students should do most of the preparation that is included in the lesson, since it teaches practical skills. I also believe that students should learn practical skills. Yet, both my lesson objectives and teaching philosophies may impact how I use preparation in my
The important reason to makes a good and professional early childhood educator is to communicate with children and try to understand them. I did not have any working experience in kindergarten, but I have some experience of taking care of a child due to my mother is a babysitter. The child that my mother takes care is a boy and he’s autism. He is a child that sometimes like lives in his own world and sometimes he is also hyperactive. He likes to sing, dance and write. Besides that, I observed that he don’t know how to tell anyone when he is upset but you will see that his face is very sad. Before that he is a child that really did not like to talk but after he had been take care by my mother for a few months he slowly can answer the question
The plan-do-review process is the most important segment of the daily routine in which children make choices about what they will do, carry out their ideas and plans while playing in the different areas of the classroom, and reflect upon their activities and experiences with adults and other children. This cycle aims to help play become meaningful. The plan-do-review process fosters children’s development of initiative, reflection, problem solving, responsibility, and they can see themselves as individuals who can act on decisions. Children experience the power of independence and are conscious of their intentions which support the development of purpose and confidence.
Observation of the classroom practice provides the best evidence of the domains of planning and preparation, and professional responsibilities of the framework for teaching is where teacher demonstrate their skills. In these domain evidence can collected directly, such as a phone log, this demonstrate the teacher ability to communicate with families.

The purpose of education is to create the “catalyst”, - the interest, the imagination, the self-confidence, the enthusiasm for further knowledge that helps a person grow beyond what they believe they can be. Education should help develop skills and knowledge, so students can be productive members of society. The more knowledge you have, the more opportunities you have in life. I think back to my childhood and the teachers that made an impact in my life. I want to be that catalyst for students. I want to send them out into the world being able to realize their full potential and capable of thinking intensively and critically.
Curriculum models provide a structure for teachers to “systematically and transparently map out the rationale for the use of particular teaching, learning and assessment approaches” in the classroom, and are regarded as an effective and essential framework for successful teachers (O’Neill 2015, p27). Feeding into a particular curricular stance, it is essential to recognise the multiplicity of sources which will govern this individual framework. Oronstein and Hunkins observe that, when designing a curricular stance, educators must first consider the “philosophical and learning theories” which will inform their “design decisions” (2009, p182). This approach is essential to ensure that the curricular approaches one selects are “consonant with
WHAT IS IT? School-based management (SBM) is a strategy to improve education. By transferring significant decision-making authority from education offices to individual schools. SBM provides principals, teachers, students, and parents control over the education process by giving them responsibility for decisions about the planning, personnel, curriculum and action in school. Through the involvement of school community members in these key decisions, SBM can create more effective learning environments for students.
I believe as teachers of English language we first get our understanding of the English teaching methods and techniques that would later affect our decisions about teaching our own students long before than official academic training begins. In fact, I, as a non-native speaker of English language, have spent at least twelve years learning it, which also means twelve years observing my teachers’ methods and strategies. Therefore, I would first like to describe my experience as a learner of English, then proceed with describing my personal teaching experience and conclude with a reflection on how these influences shaped my beliefs about language and language learning.
