The lesson I taped is one of my favorites from student teaching. I used modern language to compare the events in Boston before the revolution to the modern political and social climate. There were many things that worked well as I observed the lesson. Most of the students were engaged with the
While reading both McCarthy’s and Richard Rodriguez’s writing, you can see that despite being two very different documents(where McCarthy writes about a student named Dave and Rodriguez writes about his past), they are essentially relating the same information. Neither Rodriguez nor Dave were able to transfer skills between their classes(being able to bring one skill that they learned in a class and bring it to another class), being that Dave was a concrete learner that had difficulty conceptualising subjects, and Rodriguez was someone that only learned things that were taught to him (either by his teachers or through his readings). However, both the format of the two essays, the personalities, and lives of Dave and Rodriguez were vastly different
Rachel Mendleson 's report in the August 15th issue titled, "Raising Young Einsteins," highlights Youth Science Canada 's Smarter Science framework and Program Director Mike Newnham 's work to engage Ontario teachers in its use - as well as photos from Canada-Wide Science Fair 2011. Framing the challenge, Mendleson notes that: "Though neither well defined nor understood, innovation is widely believed to directly influence a company’s (and country’s) bottom line. And yet, when it comes to instilling this trait in our youth, the evidence suggests that Canada’s on a slow slide to mediocrity.... Despite maintaining stable, above-average scores, Canada’s relative ranking on the OECD’s prestigious Programme for International Student Assessment,
Jessica Krob is a sixteen year old girl who just had her life turned upside down. She just recently moved from Springfield, Missouri to Leachville, Arkansas, and is currently experiencing culture shock. Jessica had to leave all of her friends behind and wonderful school, but she has welcomed this adventure with an open mind and a positive attitude. Transferring high schools has been hard for Jessica, although changing high schools has allowed her the opportunity of graduating a year early. Once she set her goal of graduating a year earlier, she was determined to do well and overcome all of the challenges, because she believes life is boring if it is not difficult.
There are certain activities that can engage and motivate the learner, this could be cube which gets passed to different students and there is a question on the side of the cube that they have to ask, also reward cards are used this would be if a student has worked well and remained focused then they would get a reward for that. Also some students are encouraged to use a Blurt book this is where the student can write something down as soon as they think of something so that they do not forget what they have thought
It was a history lesson and it was easy to teach. Everything was scripted; what the teachers say, how the students are expected to reply, when to define words, when to go on a tangent about something, what to ask to evaluate their knowledge and even how they should answer. The lesson plans are written as a script with T for teacher and S for student as shown here: T: (Show the 6 dot card.) Raise your hand when you know how many dots. (Wait for all hands to be raised, then signal.)

While sitting in the classroom listening to his teacher, a boy who gets zapped with a course of science verse. From that moment on, he starts hearing everything in verse as a science poem. What follows is a series of twenty-one poems on different scientific topics that parody rhymes, songs, and famous poems. The poems cover a wide range of topics, from precipitation, the food chain, and dinosaurs to atoms, planets, and the Big Bang. Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith have collaborated many times before and are very familiar to many young and adult readers.
I really enjoyed have PowerPoint, PowToons, or other technology presentations that further explain the concept being discussed in the book. I am a visual learner and I feel the presentations really helped keep my focus centered on the topic and clarified any questions that I still had after reading the chapters from the modules. Some challenges I faced from this course were the demonstrations. I wanted to be able to explain my presentation in a clear and precise way.
Before each assignment, I would explain the procedure and how to collect and distribute material within the classroom. Another strength was that I provided them with content errors while working out problems and clarified any misconceptions (part 5, 1:18). I did an example with the class and I was able to transfer new information by achieving the objectives (part 4; 14:40). Based on that, I felt satisfied while watching the video because I made
The students had to work as a group to overcome their obstacles and find their own solutions. It was totally different from the traditional classroom setting where we listen and write down notes. We actively participated in discussions providing many solutions as possible using our imagination and reflected to not repeat the mistakes we made during the journey. From this experience, I felt I was more prepared to become an important part of
