I will explain, rehearse, and reinforce procedures for: (Explain the procedures that will be needed for your tutoring classroom.) Some of the procedures needed for the tutoring classroom include: where to wait for instructor, coming into the classroom, leaving the classroom, using the restroom, getting a drink, and attention cues. Attention Signal 5. My signal for gaining student attention is: • I say “Are you focused” and student replies with “Yes, I am”. • I say “We are learning” and the student replies with “All the time”.
My biggest need is just the need to be better prepared and second to be more organized. Practice and opportunities to speak in front of a group will help to continue to develop speaking skills. During interviews, I dislike questions about how I feel or a time when I reacted a certain way. Just like in a speech situation I feel everything is moving too fast and I need to remember to slow down, take a breath and remember I’ll be fine. Like with many people, I can be my own worst
When reading this particular example, readers put themselves in the shoes of both Ms. Schwartz and the student, and in both cases are struck with a feeling of sadness and disappointment. This element of pathos feeds into De La Cruz’s argument because nobody would want to experience that awkward and upsetting situation, resulting in both students and teachers attempting to strengthen their relationships
The first reason is can stress the student. Extra assignments given to students, can lead to unhealthy levels of stress. If bombarded with countless lessons at school and at home, students may feel stress and anxiety should they fail to complete the assignment on time. Students need to learn in a classroom setting, but they should also be able to spend some time exploring
As a former English Language Learner (ELL) student, I remember my ESOL teacher using direct instructions when I first came to the U.S. through middle school and high school. The teacher used modeling freely and placing me in groups with other students that were fluent in both languages that helped with tutoring when I had a difficult time understanding the teacher. Through this process of learning I began to communicate and slowly learned the English language. As a paraprofessional at Hillsborough High School, I use similar direct instructional strategies for my ELL students because it helps me plan in advance what lesson the teacher is going to teach and it allows me to clearly present the lesson in both the English and Spanish language.
As a rule, students needed to be nominated before answering. Occasionally, my MT would give verbal compliments (e.g., “Good”), but generally she would rephrase the elicited forms and hurry forward to the next topic. Yet, such “ritualized responses” functioned to judge students’ production of the form regardless of the content (Thornbury, 1996), which might not promote teacher-student interaction. Beyond that, students were constantly concerned about whether their answers would be affirmed or rejected, resulting in constrained
Too often I say things to a child that hurt him—that he could read if he just paid attention or simply tried harder. As a teacher I try hard to monitor the feelings of my students. Are they afraid of me? Are they scared to come to school? How are they handling the pressure that I am putting on them?
They could resent Jimmy for his behaviour and thus lead him to be more isolated and without any friends. Their learning will definitely be affected also because most of the time lessons are stopped to deal with the disruptive behaviour. Administration have the duty to ensure that the school is a safe and healthy environment for teachers and students. The promotion of positive behaviour in the classroom and school is necessary if these outcomes are to be
With Mr. Kelly you can talk and be crazy in parts of his class but if he’s really passionate about teaching a certain thing (you’ll know if he is) then you better not talk. Now you think Miss. Kendzicky you’d be able to talk in her class, but really the only time you 're allowed to talk is before her class because you NEED to pay attention to what she’s saying when she’s teaching. She only goes over everything once and you have to know it. When it comes to Mrs. Boles you 're better off not talking or doing anything “risky”
I normally spend a lot of time writing those notes. I have a good structure to the lecture like what I am going to do, a detail activities in lecture. I also set some quizzes based on that day's lesson and test the students. I often give feedback to students. I create the classroom environment so that I can test my learners as well as how well I am doing in the classroom.
