Basic facts about the Oregon Trail. (n.d.) BLM: U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management. Retrieved from: http://www.blm.gov/or/oregontrail/history-basics.php This is a page that has a lot of facts and information about the Oregon Trail. It would need to be broken down into manageable parts, because there is a lot of information on the one page. It would be used as a resource to learn more about the Oregon Trail and used during the final project time for students.
The building of the Canadian Pacific Railway was a very significant event in the development of Canada. It was important for the development of the West, which there was no easy way to get to. It benefitted the Canadian economy, allowing it to flourish and grow into what it has become today. Lastly, it allowed for unification of Canada as one whole country. The building of the CPR (Canadian Pacific Railway) was important for the development of the West.
Introduction We will have a short discussion about why maps are important in our everyday lives. I will pass out the My Fairy Tale Map Lapbook. I will read page 4 and 5 in the book Follow That Map! Each time that I read one of the definitions in the book, we will stop and create a kid friendly definition. The students will then place that definition under the flap that corresponds with the vocabulary word.
Cartography is the science or the practice of making maps. Maps are one means by which scientists distribute their ideas and pass them on to future generations (Merriam 1996). Maps are one of the most important records of our global world, they not only show where each country, city, sea… is but also teaches lots of things about the past. Cartography improved a lot in the age of exploration. The first whole world map began in the early 16th century following the voyages of the Spanish and other Europeans to the Americas, known as the New World.
In my first system I have chosen to apply my BGFL (Birmingham Grid For Learning) results. My BGFL result - logical (number smart) (15), will help me a lot in this system. I plan to use this result to help me keep track of papers and missing assignments I haven 't turned in. With my number smart I can make a number chart of my classes. I will be able to write down the number of
Student assessed teachers competency, subjective evaluation of self competency and the evaluation of PAL system using items rated on 5-point Likert scale (5 = agree, 1 = disagree) (Knobe et al. 2010). Later in 2011, Rashid et al. used 5-point Likert questionnaire which consisted of 4 sections: pre-course questions, lecture and small group seminar feedback, free text comments and post-course feedback. While 6-point Likert scale(1 = completely agree, 6 = completely disagree) questionnaire had been used in skill lab evaluation by the students (Nikendei et al.
Biddle and Berliner (2002) offered tentative theories to explain why small classes had impressive effects in the early grades. This was when youngsters were first learning the rules of school and forming ideas about whether they can cope with education. Furthermore, the most frequently cited class size study in the literature is the STAR (Student/Teacher Achievement Ratio) experiment. The Tennessee STAR (experiment began as a pilot in 1984, was mandated in 1985, and was completed in 1990). Pupils entering kindergarten in participating schools were randomly assigned to a small class (13-17), a full size class (22-25), or a full size class with a full time teacher aide.
Hello Dr. Sweetman, Amy and Fadia, welcome to my poster presentation. Dr. Clark (2010) once said, “The power of one practitioner’s expertise is converted into fuel for effective consumer advocacy in the future”. I am going to demonstrate this power, which is essential to fulfill American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) Centennial Vision. My project is a program proposal. The purpose of this project is to provide training for elementary school teachers on the topic of teaching kindergarten to 2rd grade students with handwriting difficulties or any student at risk of difficulty with handwriting.
I will share each rubric with my students before their final drafts are due so they know exactly how they will be evaluated and to clear up confusion or uncertainty. According to Carbery and Leahy, there are many well-documented benefits to using rubrics including: • Helping students learn more effectively • Students understanding the expectations of the instructors • Grades becoming more meaningful • Making is explicit what students are expected to learn • Facilitating self-evaluation • Promoting deep learning While I did use the state-provided rubrics as models, I made several modifications to each rubric in order to make them directly applicable to my classroom assignments. For instance, I added point values to each criteria on the rubric. The categories worth more points are the areas of the lesson that I find to be most important. These are also the areas that I will reiterate and emphasize to my students over the course of the unit.
With the help of Perdue, it made easier to distingue APA, MLA and Chicago citations. Learning these citations helped me to meet the standard in WRGT 101. The other important resource was a video lesson which helped me to improve my writing strategy. Arlington Public Library is very supportive for correcting my paper. I appreciate the efforts made by the tutor of Arlington Public Library and helped me to develop essential writing skills.
