If I expect both an accurate view of student abilities and a comprehensive running record, it is my duty to practice creating effective questions addressing all levels of comprehension! My final thoughts about children 's reading and learning are about the nuances between students that are so important to note as a teacher. I did a running record for two students and the differences between the students were astounding. One student read without confidence, while the other student, facing a similar situation (uncertainty of words, no previous experience with the book, no knowledge of me) read confidently.
The class would then come back together as a whole, with each group discussing the grade they gave the response and why. Mrs. Lanza would then reveal the grade she gave the response, hoping that each group fell within one point value and had relatively the same constructive criticism to give. Following this, students worked on independent writing assignments on MyAccess. Accommodations/Modifications: While working on evaluating student responses to the PRCs, Mrs. Lanza utilized the document camera to project the selected responses onto the whiteboard. In addition to visually seeing the responses, Mrs. Lanza also read the responses orally to ensure that students who had trouble seeing the responses could hear them instead.
This the lesson I choose to teach our class in EDC 121. I used the same format as well. When the students came in on their desk where a set of four problems on their desk that said to solve for the first expression of each problem I used this as a pre assessment because I wanted to know where they were at when they saw these problems, and the look on their face when they first got in there was as if I were joking but the look on their face when they saw the last problem was that they were horrified because of the parentheses. When they got to this part they were stumped because they didn 't know how to solve it. I then played a YouTube video that explains PEMDAS but it was also an attention getter.
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing.
I observed the teachers demonstrate to the students what they should do by going first. As the relay took place the teachers were encouraging the students by saying “you can do it.” Once the relay race was over the students went back inside and worked on independent work. On one side of the classroom, the kindergarteners were drawing pictures while the first graders were working on a math worksheet. Counting blocks were available to the students to use for this assignment.
and yet still, it has become prevalent to relinquish ones desire to be educated so one may conform to the habits of the culture around them. The corruption of mankind is the concept that being intelligent makes you arrogant and off-putting when in reality, becoming literate and informed can open more doors and present more opportunities than every before! In Gerald Graff’s, “Disliking Books”, Graff describes his academic and intellectual upcoming through his experience from literature in school. Despite his environment and the culture around him, Graff found clarity in class discussion and fascination in literature.
In the book Fahrenheit 451 kids go to school, but the purpose is only to fill them with facts, not teach give them knowledge to improve their lives. People think they know information, but it is only useless facts. The book says on page 64-65, “Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information.
This was appropriate for third graders to help them develop note taking skills. • Arrays- The teacher drew various arrays on the board to demonstrate how to solve the mathematical sentences. This is a strategy that is used in teaching elementary math to give students a deeper understanding of multiplication. • Independent practice- Students were given several different problems to solve on their own.
During school many students tend to stop paying attention to the lesson being taught. Their minds start to wonder and they don’t take in all of the information that is being taught. When told to ask questions if they don’t understand, they don’t ask questions. Homework gives students the opportunity to get the information a second time to reinforce what they heard, and if they didn’t get it or weren’t paying attention the first time, to take it at their own pace and make sure
Since I was in kindergarten, I have been taught to read and write. By watching alphabet videos, we would recite and write each letter every day until it stuck in our brains. We learned sentence structure, and we were inspired to write our own stories and draw them out on white copy paper; my classmates and I learned writing. While the teacher read to us Dr. Seuss books, we learned literacy sitting around a colorful, ABC lettered rug. As she read the book, we would follow in pronouncing and
In her essay “Seeing,” Annie Dillard is trying to show us a different way of perceiving things, or “seeing,” things. She wants readers to slow down and take the time to actually see what they are looking at. She believes that readers will find a million little delightful details if only they could learn how to step away from the generalizations that have been formed in their minds. She captures the essence of what she is trying to convey with her quote, “There are lots of things to see, unwrapped gifts and free surprises” (17), which carries readers back to the beginning of her essay and the pennies that she would leave for whomever would take the time to find them. She believes that nature is full of free gifts for everyone to discover.
