I loved learning how to write a narrative and procedural essay. My teacher explained how to complete a narrative, and procedural essay clearly. I would love to use some of her teaching methods someday. It 's an amazing feeling to be able to write about an experience that altered your life. If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write.
There are many reasons why we should teach children about the Holocaust in school in 8th grade. One of the reasons is the valuable skills they will learn. Students will learn to put themselves in other people's shoes and understand the decisions they make along with learning not to use prejudice or racism. A quote from an article at AnneFrank.org talks about the information and skills students can learn from a lesson about Anne Frank or the Holocaust. Students learn “Where anti semitism can lead to”, where “discrimination can lead to”, and discussing the “choices and dilemmas people faced during the war and also that history is not so clear cut.”
Read alouds allow the teacher to model fluent reading and make the comprehension process visible, (Hilden and Jones, 2013, "THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d). Some students do not receive read alouds at home, and these are the children that especially need to be read to, ( Otto, 2014). As the children progress through their schooling, they begin to think that reading fast is the most efficient, but when the teacher models her thought process aloud, this allows the students to witness what “good reading” actually entails(Hilden and Jones, 2013, "THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d). Part of “good reading” is asking questions about the
When I do them I sometimes over think, which makes me mess up and fail. What I really am striving for in this year 's English class is to get an A for every quarter and to learn and to learn new things in class. My parents want me to get an A as a grade in English for this whole year and they want me to learn new things in class. I want to make them happy by achieving that goal. English skills will help me improve my literacy and make me an efficient communicator which will help me achieve my goals in question two.
Instilling these lessons helps navigate them into the real world post high school. High School teachers should include important life lessons/methods for teens to survive life after high school. The reason is, in high school students are learning how to become young women and men and knowing how ways on how to go about doing income taxes, managing their funds, and other critical skills that come with being an adult. Adding life lessons in a schools curriculum is helping students become responsible and also teaching them accountability. In High School, students feel as if they aren’t learning anything that’ll be valuable in their future, they’re not being taught life skills.
The quote above from “Improving Adolescent Literacy: Content Area Strategies at Work” by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey, squares with my thinking because I believe giving reading assignments to students must be purposeful. In my grade years, I would always get irritated with my teachers for assigning reading without purpose. I believe teachers should give worksheets to the students when they assign reading. Assigning worksheets that go along with the text helps the students read more in depth. It also shows the students what they should be focusing on which helps the students understand the material.
Ever wonder about real life lessons and what comes with having them, well the essay you 're about to read will teach you about them. First of all many lessons from older times have been taught today in school, some may not have been. To kill a mockingbird is a great lesson that teachers shouldn 't teach today for example the book has old fashioned and very sophisticated writing like on pg(31) “Jems free dispensation of my pledge..”, what high schooler in 10th grade is going to know what that word even means.If teachers are going to teach a lesson to their students then the kids should actually be able to understand the writing. Another example why to kill a mockingbird shouldn 't be taught in schools today is because kids would read this book and most likely not even be able to relate to the book, the whole racism thing we wouldn 't understand mainly because in our times everyone is treated the same, color doesn 't matter. Back then it was a big deal, we didn 't grow up in those times how on earth could we even understand what that sort of thing is like.
Form my personal experience, emergent bilinguals should study in bilingual program because it really helps them to learn the grade level content and the language. When I come to America, I went to a high school that has bilingual program, and it helped me to learn the subject materials by making me understand the topic through my native language. It was easier for me to understand the content first, and then I just need to translate it into English. I was not only need to finish all the required classes as other students, but I also needed to take ESL classes to develop my writing, listening, and speaking skill in English. Throughout the three years in high school, I was not only able to graduate on time, but also finished the class earlier than regular
I definitely had some preferences on the books that we read this semester. An example of this is Laramie Project, I didn’t like the start of the book at all and then once it got going I ended up enjoying it a little bit more. Usually classes in high school involve skills that wont be used later in life but this class helped develop skills I will use. I saw this as a set up class for real life situations. It prepares you to be informed in a controversy like gay rights or learning about communities you didn’t know about
The reader could not understand what I was trying to say. As a way of correcting this problem, I picked the high school year that I felt affected me the most. This is why I chose the tenth grade and began writing my essays correctly. Sticking to one storyline helped my essays became easier to follow and to
