I think that Reinhart is exactly right when he says that a student should do the explaining and the teacher should be the listener. Although I know that this would be an effective strategy to use in my future classroom, I do think that this technique will be difficult to master. Being able to ask open-ended questions, process questions, and have patience to wait for a student to raise their hand and answer those difficult ones would probably be the hardest techniques for me to master. Although I know that it would come through consistent implementation and practice. Reinhart explains that through this technique, the teacher and the student must reverse the roles of the typical classroom; the teacher must become the listener and the student must become the explainer.
Firstly, in the Class ID artifact we see that class information is provided to the instructor. The start and stop dates, as well as the number of students enrolled, are provided. What technology will I need to implement this course? This is the question that teachers will need to answer. Can I use a web conference tool, and how many seats will I need?
On the contrary, teachers whose student scores organically seem inadequate may decide to tamper with the results to mask the undesirable scores. Motivation for such activities is largely due to the consequences schools and individual districts experience when the criterion is not met. According to No Child Left Behind, an act that requires annual testing to ensure that schools stay efficient and students all have the same chance for success, “if a school failed to meet federal benchmarks of progress, it could be sanctioned, reorganized, or closed” (Edwards 3). While the act sounds productive,
Teachers will be interviewed and a survey will be conducted during the beginning and the end of the intervention phases. The teacher responses will help determine the areas that they feel the use of (EIBI) will benefit the most. Survey questions will ask how the use of (EIBI) has helped their students cognitive, joint attention, receptive and expressive language. The survey will also include questions pertaining to their training, student progress, and supports from family and the
The key feature of the RTI paradigm shift is using the proactive approach to replace the reactive one. The proactive approach emphasizes on preventing a problem before it happens by the use of intensive instruction. To fill the small gaps before it getting bigger, the RTI requires classroom teachers to instruct all children, rather than waiting for the large enough discrepancy to validating a child for special
All throughout the article Jesness describes her personal experience of refusing this “floating standard” then going along with it. The author of “A Test Worth Teaching To” gives an example where a teacher rearranged teaching style and the classroom to solely focus on the students who were closest to being “proficient” (Headden A12). While this may impact those kids that are focused on, the other kids are pushed aside on the back burner. The main reason behind this is that teachers are forced to have their students reach a certain level of success by standards set by the nation and their bosses. The number of tests that students have to take removes their ability to be creative and have an opinion.
I will share each rubric with my students before their final drafts are due so they know exactly how they will be evaluated and to clear up confusion or uncertainty. According to Carbery and Leahy, there are many well-documented benefits to using rubrics including: • Helping students learn more effectively • Students understanding the expectations of the instructors • Grades becoming more meaningful • Making is explicit what students are expected to learn • Facilitating self-evaluation • Promoting deep learning While I did use the state-provided rubrics as models, I made several modifications to each rubric in order to make them directly applicable to my classroom assignments. For instance, I added point values to each criteria on the rubric. The categories worth more points are the areas of the lesson that I find to be most important. These are also the areas that I will reiterate and emphasize to my students over the course of the unit.
After receiving the adoption, the Department of Education began working with the local school districts and school to implement the standards in the school. Many school systems are trying to make sure that they are doing what they have to do to make sure that the students are learning what they need to learn in each grade level. Some school systems were thinking that the standards are hard to handle for the students. According to Edwards, 2014, which stated that parents, teachers, administrators and students are finding themselves in a battle about the new education standards as Common Core. With this information provided in this article, they still think that the rules will not work for the students and some school system still wanted to know if the Common Core Standards will be used during the academic year.
The teacher will further guide them on their individual work. I will conference with the learners and provide a teaching point to make their writing better. Learners will demonstrate their learning by sharing their writing, independent work and conferences, as well as reflective questions. The formative assessment is able to meet each students needs based on the
This claim is from the article “Should Parents Pay for Good Grades?”. The NEA article claims “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents”. Therefore, students may be under pressure to earn more money that other students. This can affect students by leaving them under pressure and stress to do better, which can cause their grade to be lowered. Lowering the grade of the student could mean possible problems with parents.
Continuingprogress monitoring grants teachers and schools to adjust and modify instruction to expeditestudent growth, success, and learning. These assessments are great tools that be used in theclassroom, after you have received the data from these assessment you are able to planinstruction. Through instruction is when you find strategies and activities to promote studentgrowth. No child should ever end a school year being on the same reading level, or a lowerreading level from where they started. Advancement is critical in the school system and everychild deserves to succeed to their full potential.Fuchs, L.S.
