Community Outreach Academy has approximately 88% of English Language Learners and the mission of the school is to increase students’ language skills. All of the teachers are certified as ELL teachers. Teachers use many different strategies to increase the skills in students and one of them is SDAIE. In addition to that, a supplemental vocabulary curriculum by Steck-Vaughis being implemented for grades second through sixth. For Kindergarten through second grade, students receive a weekly lesson in bi-lingual instruction based upon their Treasures story vocabulary for the week.
Video Response 3 Addressing a student’s needs plays a vital part in the student’s academic success. Understanding one’s needs requires that a teacher take the steps to understanding the child’s personality traits, interests, abilities, disabilities, and so forth. Students are more likely to grasp the interest of learning a specific subject if they feel that the teacher is kind and understanding, just as Trisha and Brittany’s teachers is. Brittany’s mother mentions that a significant change is notable in Brittany’s self-esteem and grades (Kirk, Gallagher, & Coleman, 2015). Trisha certainly associates her good grades to her relationship with her science teacher and identifies her teacher as helpful (Kirk, Gallagher, & Coleman, 2015).
During the observation portion of this assignment, I observed in a fifth grade ELL classroom. The teacher in charge of this class is Anissa Rose. She has been an ELL teacher for many years and teaches students in kindergarten through the 8th grade. This paper will discuss whether or not the students were aware of the class language and content objective, how the teacher instructed the content and language objectives, the type of group configurations, and how the teacher accommodated for different ELP levels.
Over the years, I have been taught discipline and endurance, which ultimately led to my academic success. Since the age of four, I have attended various math and writing classes, closing the initial gap between me and my classmates. Also, I spent my eighth-grade year at BASIS Ahwatukee, similar to the KIPP Academy mentioned in Outliers, where teachers drill academic proficiency into the students’ minds. As a middle schooler, I took eight classes a day, three of which were required science courses. These circumstances represent the “rice paddy” analogy where you can use grit and diligence to wipe away any disadvantage.
We had such a relationship that she wrote a recommendation letter for me when I was applying for scholarships. It had been over eight years since she taught me but because of the impact she made on my life we stayed in contact and she knew of every club and every position I ever attained in high school. Mrs. Mackey was definitely functioning at the stage four level of teaching and she was a
I witnessed firsthand a variety of modifications that I can use to help my students with exceptionalities in my own classroom one day. The teachers really showed love in everything that they did and it gave the students a desire to do their
Among the similarities both classes look very structure and with excellent routines in place. The differences were minimal because Mrs. Pitcher and Ms. Valentine work as a team. An “ah ha” moment for me was to observe how well the kids work together and have well establish routines. The reading strategies used were reading groups by level and students answering comprehension questions. The teachers
Taylor and I met during a team building activity our freshman year at Yadkin Valley Regional Career Academy, during our first two weeks. Even though I have gotten to know her over the past two years, this interview experience let me get to know even more about Taylor. Taylor is a hardworking, compassionate, patient young woman who continues to inspire me to do better in my own life. Taylor is 16 years old and is from Thomasville, North Carolina. Taylor went to Silver Valley Elementary School, South Davidson Middle School and now attends Yadkin Valley Regional Career Academy.
Positive, productive learning needs to be the focus. My favorite field experience, by far was this one here at Van E. Blanton Elementary School. I was placed in a classroom with students with many diverse, yet was not passing their state testing and obviously needed more attention and help. The teacher helped each student individually and showed incredible amounts of patience. She created a healthy classroom environment, and the students were all engaged and excited about learning.
It was September, and I was 4 years- old. The year was 2006. When I walked in the front doors of the huge brick building, I realized that it was my first day of school, and I was going to a place called Saint Mary’s I couldn’t really pronounce the word “Institute” when I was 4 years-old, but I would quickly learn how to learn and spell the word thanks to the amazing teachers I have now and have had in the past. They gave me the best education of my life. However, it all started here: in front of the door
One of the most positive things that I did with students this year was to take the Honors students to Lenape Elementary during Teen Read Week. Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998. In an effort to involve my students and inspire elementary students to read, my Honors English class, in cooperation with seven Lenape Elementary teachers and the building principal, we arranged a schedule,
He also maintained the class very well during the group activities by previously assigning roles. Roles like timekeeper, table leaders, and recorders. These jobs kept the students on task throughout the entire process and also made them more involved in the learning process. He also created a very positive learning environment by creating little phrases as a class. This is a fun way to have a bond with the students so that they can be involved with the learning process and also know when to move from one activity to the next.
He showed eagerness in listening to her, and took to heart what she taught and said. Its amazing how the right adult supervision can turn a child onto a path of education and correct social skills. It was interesting to read Ruvy 's IEP and then to see the child in action. Ruvy is a wonderful child and has a lot to offer to others, the class and
The volunteering offers you to be able to help students in developing their social and learning skills. These students at Hope Academy all have disabilities and taking extra time out of your day will help them develop learning skills and also help them become more sociable. From all the information given about Hope Academy I knew what to expect as soon as I walked in. To be honest I actually got more than what I expected from volunteering there, the students actually taught me something. While volunteering you can tell that everyone there loves their job and enjoys every bit of developing the students.
