I was tired of being label a slow reader. I was advanced in my math classes and hardworking student; because of this I knew there wasn’t anything wrong with me. I figured that if I can learn this complicated rules in math than I can learn how read better. With the help of my parents and other teachers I was able to figure out that I was exposed to three different ways of reading. Form that moment I told myself that I should practice the English literacy, since all the text books are written in English.
A article that supports standardized test is “ The Value of Standardized Testing” By Dr. Gail Gross. This article talks about how standardized test makes teacher’s life easier, since it helps them to know in the most effective way on what each student is learning. According to: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/ “Furthermore, the standardized test gives valuable insight into broader issues, such as the standard curriculum important to grade level requirements, and an education reference point for fair and equitable education for all children in all schools”. This means that standardized test helps professor identify what the students are having trouble with and help them to overcome the issue. Another example is “ Moreover, student growth can be a very significant outcome of standardized tests, for though a child may return a low score he may show a growth pattern that is positive”.
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
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
The general education teacher uses the same curriculum that special education teacher uses an (All-Star Programme) for both students with special need and the other students. So, when the students with special needs came to the class. The First 10 minutes, the teacher gives them a handout for all the students in the classroom from (All-Star Programme) with colour. I didn 't like that students with special needs had their own solitary table in the general education classroom and doesn 't engage them with the other students when they colour. The last 30 minutes, the general education teacher and all students sit in a circle, then the teacher read the story.
A good education can change anyone, a good teacher can change everything. This quote connects to ‘The Metaphor” by Budge Wilson and The Ron Clark Story by Rain Haines, because most of the students'' in these stories got the privilege of a good education but it’s the teachers that really made a difference in their lives. Good teachers that have a variety of learning techniques, are going to have a better outcome in their classrooms, resulting in more successful, lifelong learners. Teachers that have the ability to adapt to the students learning skills can completely change their grades. The ones that care about the students education and potential in the future will be able to change the way a kid looks at school.
She allowed me to supervise the students during activities, as well as help measure their reading comprehension over the months I volunteered. I was able to have a connection with the teacher I was paired with; however, the most important relationship was with each student. Each student has a unique personality, and or a different need, some varying from day to day. You must really have a compassion for teaching kids how to learn and grow or you will not succeed in the early ages of childhood
10) The following instructional strategies used in the properties of multiplication lesson: • Modeling- The teacher wrote on the board what she wanted the students to write in their math journals. 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.
I’ve decided to use the Qualitative method for my research paper by observing three first grade students from one of the classes in the learning center that I’m currently working at. The students I’ve chosen to observe are 2 girls and 1 boy who are not only the same age but their English speaking ability are more or the less on the same level. During my first observation time, an interruption accrued in the class time when one the girls, M, insisted that she’s from Newzealand (because of her adoration for her previous NZ English teacher)while making her short speech when rest of the class all know that she’s from China. An argument broken out when S, another girl who’s also on my observation list, corrected M by saying that “no, you are from China. M got very upset and call S a liar.
They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
The teacher makes the students quickly recite the words given and spell one word. Then, a child is shown site reading. While the child is reading, the teacher/instructor is keeping track of if and how many errors were made. She also kept track of how long it took the child to read the given paragraph. The next thing in the video, they interview a young student and ask him why he enjoys the directional education methods that they use in the classroom.
In the article “Assessing Bilingual/Multilingual Pre-K–12 Students”, Virginia Gonzalez states "With adequate training, teachers can use classroom-based assessments as individualized tools that can tap into the language, cultural, and idiosyncratic differences present in multilingual/bilingual students". It is important that teachers have a high cultural and language competence in order to work with diverse
On October 13, I observed the second grade reading and grammar classroom of Mrs. Turner at Elkhorn City Elementary. The students were sitting at tables with their attention directed towards the smart board. They were instructed to begin their D.O.L., or daily oral learning activity, led by the teacher. The smart board was pulled up to where you could see Mrs. Turner writing on her own notebook paper as to visually walk them through heading up their papers and the correct format of sentences. The D.O.L.
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.
According to Eccles and Gootman (2002), providing a safe space for the students is essential for positive development (p. 89). If students do not feel safe in the classroom, they are more likely to foster feelings of fear and insecurity (Eccles and Gootman, 2002, p. 90). When the developmental alliance creates a supportive relationship and a positive classroom environment, the student is able to grow and connect with the youth. This relationship can help translate to greater success in school because of the support of the developmental alliance and the classroom (Connected Learning: Inspiring Mentors and
