Today a student came to me in the tutoring lab asking how to approach an assignment she had been given. She was a Graphic Design major and her assignment was to analyze a poster and write a paper on what choices were made and reasons for its design. As a tutor, my strategy to conquering any students’ assignment with success is to make sure the student understands what the assignment is asking of her and what she needs to address. So we sat down and we made a list of what bases needed to be covered to complete the assignment. This paper is developed around on main thing: a poster.
The writer states that she was using this approach while applying the puzzles to acquire the problem-solving skills; however, there is no detail about this approach. It can be said that “Constructivist approaches to learning emphasize student-centered and project-based learning where students pose questions, explore multiple interpretations of meaning, and where the teacher acts as facilitator and guide.” . But, in case the reader does not know about this approach, there should have given some general information about it and the methods which are used in it. On the other hand, according to the description of the approach above, the writer literally used it in the class taking into consideration that the whole process she stated in her article is based on this learner-centric education, which was observed the shift from the teacher-centric
This journal entry will discuss a follow-up with the instructor about the issues from a previous assignment and clarify some questions about the final research proposal due in week six. In addition, some of the problems are the hypothesis and framework to finish the final paper. After talking to the instructor, she pointed out that the self-care deficit theory could help tie up some loose ends and finding resources that support that will help to put my final proposal together. Furthermore, the journal articles and other data collected discuss self-care and compassion fatigue and burn out and all the information that has been gathered should be enough to write the final research proposal. Journal 5.4 Initiate a Call: Research Proposal Feedback Feedback for my previous assignment showed what needed to be addressed in the final research proposal due in week six.
Reflective Letter on MWA #1 I believe that the purpose of major writing assignment number one was to improve our interview skills and solidify our understanding of genre as used in the context of our class. For this writing assignment I created a Weebly website that is meant to teach the class about the most important genre used in the field of computer science. To successfully do this I first gave a brief description of what computer science entails and that what it does not, I then followed up the description with a few questions and answers from my interview while also describing my professor that I interviewed. Finally, I began writing about my genre—developmental collaborative writing on a whiteboard—and gave its purpose followed by a few links. These links lead to the descriptions of my genre’s audience, rhetorical factors, structure, and style of writing; with all of the information presented on my website there should be a good enough description of developmental collaborative writing to help my fellow classmates understand what it is.
Annotated Bibliography Tashina Stoffel, Personal Interview, 3 November 2015 I prepared for my interview by researching questions that would really be essential to my essay. I chose questions that would be easy for her to answer and questions that could be incorporated into my essay. I also asked questions that would be fun for her to answer and that could help influence my decision on the career. I used the answers to the questions to introduce the career. Coming from a person who has attended school and made my topic her profession.
• Note the grammatical complexity of the writing. The feedback strategy used for this lesson will be “Tweets about today’s lesson” where the students will “tweet” about the lesson and can answer either what they learnt from the lesson, what they did not know or what questions they might have. (Presto Plans, n.d.) The feedback strategy can inform the student on how students understand and where they can learn more. The “tweets” can then be put up on the wall for the students to go back to and when they understand something they were unsure of previously, they can replace it with a new “tweet” or add it to their previous “tweet” to see how their learning has
Artifact #1: What’s My Sentence, Name Card and Self Image My first artifact is my beginning of the year self projects. These were little assignments that helped myself and the class figure out out who I was, who I am and who I will be. One project we did was our Self Image. This was a paper where I had to ask my family and friends who they think I am, and then reflect on what they said about me. This helped me understand who I am in the eye of others.
However, as I get involved into summative assessments, I should practice creating reports. During my practical placements, I plan to gain further insight into this aspect by discussing about my intention of improving my skills in report writing, with my mentor teacher. I would like to go through a variety of reports on different learning areas from my mentor teacher, and start gathering resources pertaining to report writing. I would take effort to write some reports with comments as a practice, ensuring that it is embedded with proper evidence to support my views (Readman, p.157). As I have insufficient experience in report writing, io would like to utilise databanks of reporting statements, if they are available in the school (Readman,
“Final Reflection” Harold Lester, Jr. EXP 105: Personal Dimensions of Education (G301748A) Dr. Gonzalez January 15, 2018 “Final Reflection” Written by: Harold Lester, Jr. Taking this course has taught me how acknowledge and understand the concept of learning, and better understand how it works in order to successful. I believe after learning the concept of learning, I have a better chance on explaining to one who has not yet taken this course. The way that I understand the concept of learning is one taking the responsibility to establish their goals and build skills to help them become an intentional learner, while identifying their weaknesses and strengths. According to the text, “Learning, whether in a classroom, the real
Prior to the formal assessment in lesson 2 teachers will be able to progress monitor student’s learning by having them fill out the story structure graphic organizer where students must list a characteristic about one of the main characters with evidence to support their answer that their group discussed. They will also be given a story structure graphic organizer to list characters, setting, problem/beginning, middle, and end of the story to see if any re-teaching is needed. After reading the book Isabel and the Hungry Coyote, by Keith Polette students will be given the formal assessment that is the same format as the informal assessment where students will list a characteristic about one of the main characters with evidence along with listing
What is/are your approach/approaches to this lesson, please explain your approach? Teaching the lesson on characters viewpoint, I used the bottom-top approach to help students understand what they were looking for when describing the viewpoint of a character. When starting the lesson, I had the student explain to me what is a character and how can the reader know who is the main character. Once students were able to define a character, we changed the discussion to thinking of how every character is different. Students were able to successfully describe to why characters in a story each character is acts or thinks different.

In order to participate in the class discussion you must do a PIN reading of your article. You will write something that is positive, interesting, and negative from what you read.
In my project, I put myself in the students shoes and made a lesson plan that I would have wanted presented to me. Therefore, I made the role playing interesting and decided to bring an item into class to pass around within the students and started explaining my topic to the class. As that was in process, I had also made a detailed poster and provided some visuals with drawings and diagrams and added just the right amount of wording. This technique has helped me in remembering certain key points from lectures. Throughout my
