Mr. Salsada reminds me of a great quote by Alexandra K. Trenfor, “the best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see”. Mr. Salsada guaranteed that if I try to learn with no pressure of tests or homework, but for the actual information and understanding of things, I would actually learn and retain the information and my grades would improve. And surely it
Moreover, demographics and culture are not an excuse for students’ lack of achievement. (pg.80) Acknowledging and embracing a student’s racial or ethnic background is important, but it is just a piece of the educational puzzle. Effective teachers must be culturally responsive, with fine-tuned classroom management skills, and high expectations for all their students. It is crucial for an effective
Overall this book is a great read for anyone willing to learn how to exchange more positive interactions in their life. Some strengths of the read are that it helps give an insight on someone 's personal actions and how they might affect others. Also, the book comes with a complete guide on how to apply what was said directly to the workplace. One weakness of the book was that it was cheesy and felt as if it dragged on at times. Even though it was helpful and informative, a lot of concepts and ideas were repeated constantly.
Imagine going to school and really succeeding; you understand everything, you’re getting good grades and all the praise you can dream of from your parents and teachers. But then you move up and things get harder, you don’t understand everything, your grades are dropping and you are scared that you will no longer get that praise. You have two options, you can either take on the challenge and get back to where you used to be, or you can sit down when you feel threated by the hard work. In “Brainology” by author Carol S. Dweck, we are shown research concerning those two options or “mindsets” and how we can change them. This excerpt is divided into four main parts; first, Mindsets and Achievement , where the thought-processes are first introduced.
I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?
It makes San Tan Foothills a fun and easy going school to go to. If I ever need someone to talk to, I know that my teachers are there for me and will listen and care about what I have to say. Teachers are really what make this school what it is. Take them away and put in people who don’t care and see what happens. Not only are my teachers there for me, I’m here for them.
I believe that the students were interested in the assignment because of the intensive work they put in and at the end of it all may have seen the benefits of American Literature or gain a whole new perspective on Literature and reading as a whole. The fact that they had relevant reasons and appropriate and effective research to back of their points showed the effort and interest they had and I believe she was proud of the results and even learned as a lecturer from those students. Student centred strategies are always effective and allows the learner to have a sense of control and allow them to gain an appreciation on their own without being forced to conform to someone else’s ideas and views. By allowing the students to choose their own books they can get a sense of what they like and may realize that it could be the content that does not interest them and not reading on a whole. Students have a mind of their own and allowing them to choose books can also help in future reference when teaching different students.
Students Name Professors Name Course Date Discourse Community Ethnography The introduction of the notion of communicative competence has been positive in the sense that communication is now conceived as a result of the successful application of not only grammatical but also pragmatic knowledge and skills. Nevertheless, this has not changed the perspective many instructors had of language, because pragmatic information has usually been presented as an auxiliary component which is to be used only when grammatical explanations are difficult or impossible. The result is that for many language educators here is still a core clement about which they have to be especially careful grammatical competence. The communicative approach to language teaching
I also possess excellent communication skills, I am a good listener and I can understand and share the feelings of others. All skills apart from the academic ones which are important to being a good teacher and demonstrates my willingness to go the extra mile.

Stopping behavioral interruptions will allow more time to teach. Class management will also create a positive learning environment where students can state their own opinions without others bashing them for it. Secondly, bad teachers have bad people skills. Good communication is essential in a learning environment in order to progress as a student. A bad teacher rarely communicates or not even acknowledge other teachers, students, administrators, parents, and staff members.
