If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write. It would be exciting to be able to sit down and read my students papers. After we constructed our essays, we had to complete a peer review activity. I enjoyed helping people look over their essays and give them suggestions on how they could improve their essays. The peer review activity made me open my eyes and see that I enjoy helping
By implementing literature circle all the students are reading at their level and with people from their level. Forming reading level groups, will help those students that need extra time reading to take their time and be helped by those of their level. Also, it helps advance readers will be challenge with a higher level of vocabulary that will be introduce in the reading. In classes I have observe this method of teacher is implied, but all students are reading the same books. The only different were the reading assignments were modified based on their academic level.
I will conduct a short 10 minute presentation to inform them about some of the educational benefits that the LAARNG has to offer as well as entertain any questions that they might have. My goal will be to have all the junior and senior class teachers to provide contact information on a sign in roster that I will provide during my presentation, which will also ask permission to conduct presentations in their respective classes during the school year. This will create solid COI’s/VIP’s within the school, who will reiterate to the students the importance of their future and how the LAARNG can benefit
These literacy myths manifest in a multitude of ways such as “I am a terrible writer,” to “I am an excellent writer.” The truth is with literacy; it is not a fixed construct and is always in flux. Through literacy, one can challenge limiting beliefs and any preconceived ideas that are derived from our assessment heavy educational system. A literacy narrative is a useful tool for turning voices into ideas that effect change. This sense of agency as a writer is a form
The writing process is a very big problem for me, but Dr. Wenzell has the step-by-step teaching style of these which I took heed to. I had not known how to actually break down a story and/or poem. It was very helpful when I got used to it because it can make more detailed ideas. Before I enrolled into ENG 102 course, I knew how to write an essay, but my strengths were limited. My first essay on fiction was improperly punctuated, had a weak body structure, and fused sentences.
This was to help students understand that written language is meaningful, gain an understanding of text structures, and see what fluid reading looks and sounds like (Bainbridge & Heydon, 2017). The purpose of the read-aloud was also to help students work on the three receptive dimensions of language and literacy(Listening, Reading, Viewing). Along with the read-aloud, students were to bring in an artifact to share with the class. The purpose of this was to help them relate their lives to the story. When students see a connection between themselves and a character, they seem to enjoy reading more than when they do not see a connection.
Each acts upon their beliefs as they perceive them, and as a result are poles apart. Mr. Young is passionate about his belief that teaching US Standard English as an anchor is a threat to people who he refers to as “multiculturals” (Young 111). It is interesting to observe that he uses his first vernacular to express himself, but uses the rules of US Standard English to write it with. This use of his preferred language made the article difficult to read, and understand unless the reader was very familiar with that dialect. His dedication to his opinion came across to this reader as extremely aggressive in tone.
The reader acquires a variety of vocabulary thus increases the quality of writing and reading for low level readers. Secondly, it makes the reader be able to interpret text by using word attack skills and text attack skills which improves the skill of reading. Lastly, it makes the reader to understand or comprehend difficult text in a book or reading material. Drawbacks or limitations of intensive reading are firstly, most time is spent on reading a small amount of text which is time consuming. Secondly, Reading new material mostly containing complex vocabulary and grammar is a long and slow process in order for the reader to understand the text in the reading material.
Many students of all ages have issues with writing, the only way to get better at writing is to have experience. I never paid much attention to my writing skills while in high school, I simply did not care about writing. This year as a freshman in college, I have struggled with writing this semester in GSW 1100. Even though I have not been passing papers, I understand that writing in college is extremely important to learn and develop. This is important because most courses in college have writing in them.
