I loved learning how to write a narrative and procedural essay. My teacher explained how to complete a narrative, and procedural essay clearly. I would love to use some of her teaching methods someday. It 's an amazing feeling to be able to write about an experience that altered your life. If I teach English someday, I want my students to learn how to express themselves when they write.
Strategy Instruction and Rationale: The students will be given an expository text to read on their own. The students will also be given a power mapping graphic organizer to use while reading their text. The students will fill out the power-mapping organizer with the main idea, the subtopics and then the supporting ideas. The students will have to use phrases from the text to make sure that they are utilizing the correct vocabulary. As Gordon says in her lecture, Comprehension Part II, power mapping graphic organizers show the relationship between ideas/ concepts and can be applied in all content areas.
I was effective when it came to thinking out of the box. Students learn differently, so I had to develop and utilize different strategies and techniques to influence every student. Moreover, what works for one student may not work for another. Therefore, teachers have to be creative and adaptive with their
It has influenced me to use some of the activities, stories, and projects that we did during this course. This course taught us a lot of helpful classroom projects that will have the students reading but also learning a lesson with most of the stories. This has influenced me to be on top of my grading, to manage my time when in the classroom, and to involve the students as much as I can. I plan on implementing all of the books that we did a log over because they are all fun and of the age of students I want to teach. I enjoyed the books that we read now and when I was younger so I feel they will be great to share with my students some day.
It also helps them to learn social skills as they are playing games with other children. When children are at this age they develop their fine and gross motor skills. Fine motor games for this age range include: • Lego helps children develop as they can build up the blocks and knock them down. Children can also develop their social, language and communication skills as they can be playing with others. • Dolls help children develop their physical and cognitive skills as they can do buttons and zips.
I fixed this by helping them sound out words and phrases to read the book with me. A main focus I tried to implement is establishing a positive mental set at the beginning of each day and lesson. This allowed the students to become more ready for the lesson and become more interested in the lesson from the start. Another way that I did this was once the book was finished I would hand them a piece of paper and let them draw out or re-write their favorite part of the book. This allowed them to review the book and see what we had just talked about.
It was worth knowing what kind of learner I am because now I know how I should go about things and how to apply my strengths and then how to work on my weaknesses. Something I enjoyed about RDG 140 was the way Mrs. Turner taught us how to take notes. There are various ways however, the way she taught us stuck to me. We would take lined paper, fold it in half vertically,
By using a set of leading questions, the direction of investigation is loosely defined but students are free to pursue the questions according to interests and personal ability. Students are equipped with the right questions to seek information to develop an individualized understanding of the concepts as seen in the use of prompting questions. An excellent chance to review any information learned is provided after the first part of the lesson, when students have to link together their information and key word into a concept map. During the next period, as a class the students will be able to initially evaluate their own concepts and the implications behind them when more complete terms and explicit lecture information is provided. Students can further revise their conceptualization of the topics presented when they complete the expanded
Reading is such an important life skill. Every child should have every possibility to be as successful a reader as possible. Processing or memorizing Information: Difficulty waiting or Impulsiveness is something I would want to address within my classroom. This can be done as a class as well as for individuals. All children have to wait at some point and for those who struggle with that learning techniques can help.
(MacDonald 44) Response 1: I have learn from this that listening is very important when tutoring. It is very important for tutors to know when to talk and when to listen.
