By the end of the year they told us that it should be at the quality of an assignment we had two weeks to write. With this type of high school education I have come to understand that my
Class Observation Summary #1 My two day observation took place at Summit Academy high school. It is a school of about 700 students located in the city of Romulus MI. The teacher, Mrs. Jill Carbone allowed me to observe the 6th hour class for two days for 60 minutes each day. This class is composed of 11 English language learners (ELL); ten of the students are Spanish speakers and one student is Urdu speaker.
The first task on my checklist was “Read the Learning Guide and Reading Assignments”. Since I already went through the Learning Journal, then the next task was to complete my reading assignments, which I normally do on Fridays. Fridays are normally my days off from work, so I take this time to complete as many assignments as I can. This week, there were two main reading assignments and two optional video lectures.
In the classroom there’s a list of words the students will learn throughout the year, every night they would get new words and at the end of the week, they would get quizzed on a set of words. The teacher has an annotation chart that has different things that students can do. For example, if the students have a question about their reading they can put question marks next to it and more. This helps the students understand the reading much better and this also helps the teacher know the students need help with. There were many students who wouldn’t listen and would just be laughing, getting up without asking and disrupted the class during the lesson they would lose their recess,
LC requests a copy of the family assessment guide to better prepare for the interview with the family. The father, BC, receives the majority of the questions on the first visit due to his work schedule. The parents display interest in the results of the paper and the children express intrigue. LC requests another appointment in two weeks to be able to discuss some of the topics that she needs to investigate
Nicholas was soon under Miss.Hurd’s spell. Miss. Hurd taught the class how to put out a newspaper, skills he honed during his next 25 years as a journalist. Soon i asked the principal to transfer me to her english class as well. In her class she drilled them on grammar until he finally began to understand the logic and structure of English language.
The groups met with both the internal and external facilitator once a week for six weeks. In the skills day, the groups learned about person centeredness as a framework and what values mean to the older person. As the first year of the study advanced, meetings and discussions were regularly had. As the years progressed, projects were established where the groups discussed the advantages of putting this framework into place. Reflection on the aspects they had learned also took place after each session.
We wrote four paper assignments this quarter, two of them about the story we read in class, one from a story and outside material and one about English 101 class at itself which is this paper. We must submit the rough draft before the due date of the assignment, which helps us to have clarification from our instructor and from a classmate. I am always improving after each paper I wrote, because I follow up with the comment I received, edit my paper then make an appointment with my instructor before I submit my final draft. These comments make me feel confident in the next paper. Writing in something that you can improve your knowledge and the way of thinking, comparing to my papers, I will discuss how I developed revisions strategies, learned proper citation, and how pre-writing can help improve my writing.
When I was in elementary school I learned a variety of words every week. I needed to learn all sorts of words so i could be an intelligent reader. For example, in first grade we read electronic Leap Frog books. The Leap Frog books read us the story and taught us the words at the same time. It made learning to read easier and fun at the same time.
First day of first grade, the teacher hands out pieces of paper and tells us to write the most creative story we can think of. First day of middle school, the teacher asks us to get out a notebook and write a fascinating story about our summer. First day of high school, the teacher tells us to get our laptops out so we can start working on a paper about what we want to be when we grow up. First day of English Composition I, the teacher tells us to read the syllabus and handouts because assignments will be starting the next week.
Every teacher has a website where parents can find important curriculum information such as daily schedule, teacher’s contact information and updates. Teachers are required to send a “Wednesday Folder” every Wednesday. This folder contains any newsletters or flyers distributed by the district or the school. In addition to this, this folder also consists of graded worksheets from the previous week and a chart that has individual feedback for conduct and performance for every child. The students are required to show these folders to their parents and returned signed folders the next day which earns them two tickets that can be redeemed for Prixes or perks (discussed in part 2).
Entry #2: Date and Time: Friday, February 17, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (3 hours) Task/Activity: Students in both classes started off the class by taking their weekly spelling test. Following this, both classes examined prose-constructed responses completed by fellow students (although responses were kept anonymous). Students would then work in groups to grade the response according to PARCC standards.
Additionally, Brian’s parents may want to send his teacher the results of their tutoring sessions every week to show the teacher what they are doing and how they are progressing and have her check and sign off on the work provided. The teacher could also offer recommendations and suggestions for Brian’s parents in regards to their tutoring work. The actual tutoring would take place twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with the teacher being sent a report on Friday. On Friday the teacher could send feedback home to the parents and over the weekend the parents could review the feedback and develop the next week’s tutoring
Starting the age of 5, we come to school everyday to learn something and expand our horizons. We start with the basics, such as the ABC’s and our 123’s, until we work our way up to a more in depth discussion of each subject, such as English II. This semester, I have learned topics in the field of English II,such as grasping the underlying meaning a book presents, the 12 archetypes, even the subject of debate. The semester began with the discussion of “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd.
My short term goal for this week and the week coming forward is to continue to use my time wisely to study for the last few test that we will have. I have progressed a lot this month with getting my grade up. In the beginning of the month I can honestly say I did not use my time like I should have. I did not fully read the chapters I was given, and my grade showed. The second quiz my grade went up a little more, and during that time I did take the time to read some, but not all chapters.
