I am also a big supported of women’s right and I look forward to learning more about these topics and having civil class discussions. I hope to learn more and get more perspective from classmates. I hope to apply what I learn as I continue to voice my beliefs in our community in a respectable way. I look forward to exercising my critical and analytical thinking in this class. In this first week I have been intellectually challenged by my professor and other classmates as they have asked thought provoking questions and I strive to attribute as
Journal - Day 1 So far the experience is going very well. I met my cooperating teacher and we talked about different stuff on what and what not to do. During some free time I was memorizing students’ names and where they were sitting out. My cooperating teacher has a clipboard with pictures of the students faces from last years school book and where they are sitting at on sheets of paper. We also exchanged phone numbers and reporting time is at 7:20 and dismissal is anywhere from 2 - 4:20.
However, in talking circle I realized there was literally no scope of avoiding class participation as every student would eventually share their thoughts in sequence that would promote equitable discussion and participation. Especially, using talking circle to introduce new math topics would be an effective way to enhance students’ number fluency and get them comfortable with explaining their thought process by using students' prior knowledge. Talking circles could also be helpful to review materials before an assessment by discussing questions and answers with students as a group. By exploring different perspective of talking circle the teachers can best implement the discussion format in their classroom to help minimize stratified talk and support mathematics learning for all
At George Fisher Middle School, students and teachers work together to collaborate and create a positive learning environment. The 6cs of the school that are emphasized areas of focus are critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, citizenship, and compassion. Students in this class features students who enjoy participating and having an active role in the learning. The class also features many theatre kids, I can take into consideration these interests. Prior knowledge- Students have already learned about the Bills of Rights with an emphasis on the 1st and 4th amendment.
What actions has each professor taken to establish cohesiveness in his or her class? Professor Gardner has encouraged students to engage with him and each other and listen to all active discussions. He uses each student’s name and allows each student to use his first name or title. There is a feeling of a group and many students interact with each other outside of the classroom. Professor Morgan allows students to talk about whatever they want even if it does not pertain to current studies.
Also, attending to all my composition classes will help me be successful because I will have the opportunity to check the papers of my colleagues and vice versa. Checking the papers of my colleagues can help me find new writing styles and expand my writing skills; when my colleagues grade my papers, they will help me identify my weak spots in my writing. Another way to improve in my class is by attending to my professor’s office hours. All students need to take advantage of office hours if the professors have any. Attending to these office hours will help you get to know the professor a lot more.
This will lead to him testing his student’s fluency. If his students are not able to read fluently, then they will have to focus on sounding out the words instead of comprehending what the text is saying. So this will show why the students either scored high or not. b. Another test Adrian could administer is: The Early Names Test.
Even though I have experience helping to write IEPs in the last two years, it was really just from what I gleaned from sitting in IEP meetings and listening to colleagues as they reviewed IEPs with families. This class provided much more detail to me, about the thought process behind each section of the IEP (PLOPs, measureable goals) and why the IEP is developed the way it is. For example, the Present Levels of Performance are written to give a clear picture of the student – where are they now? What are their academic and functional needs? How does their disability affect their time in the regular education classroom?
As discussed previously, effective lesson planning can have a positive effect on the motivation on a teacher. This is certainly the case for effective planning in the workplace. It also aids in satisfaction. Although the lesson plan’s primary objective is to improve the overall quality of teaching to benefit students, this also improves teacher motivation and development. This is achieved through using the lesson plan as a permanent record of lessons taught.
Having a combination of what we learn since day one through all the semester and adding all or some of the topics on future projects was an outstanding way to keep learning not only the previous topics but the new ones we touch during school time. Sharing in class our progression was awesome because it showed us how behind or ahead we were with our work, but the most important the extra help or feedback we got from other students. I personally think it was worth the time we spent in class since I always went home after each day of class knowing that I had learned something knew in my life and that I will be using in my
I have been given numerous opportunities to prove myself, both in the classroom and out, and I believe I have done so. I made a positive impact on a younger peer, and I am proud of that. In my mind, that is one of my biggest accomplishments. I have maintained good grades, and challenged myself. I have learned how to balance myself.
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
If the child comes up with only one proof detail under a specific category, perhaps that category needs to be revised. I though my sons to write an outline using "sentence outline" and as soon as they understood it, we switched to the topic outline. They are both acceptable. The topic outline consists of one word or more to express the key idea that will be developed later on the body of the composition. The sentence outline is when the student uses full sentences to formulate and organize ideas.
After three quarters and over six months, I was able to go to an in depth interview with the teacher of the classroom that I peer tutor. Mr. Kanna the U.S. History teacher for juniors, has been working with me in order to help spread the knowledge further for the entire class. My role in the class is to help out the students in the classroom on any questions they have for U.S. History. Over the months, I have gotten into a routine, in which I help anyone who has a question for the home/classwork or to connect an event/person of the past to today or to be there for moral support in the class. I have personally take great joy in helping out the students in any way possible.
