The joy of learning is what unified the Walls family and is the source of the children’s most endearing memories. They would read together and bond over learning. Jeannette recounts her happier moments “after dinner, the whole family was stretched out on the benches and the floor of the depot and read with the dictionary in the middle of the room so we could look up words we didn’t know. (Walls 56-57) The Walls not only believed in a growth mindset; sharing knowledge was in fact how Rex and Rose Mary best expressed their genuine love and affection towards their children.
By dedicating at least 1-2 hours per day on the weekends to schoolwork, I can manage my workload without feeling overburdened. The final step is the limit or work around procrastination. If I couldn’t get rid of this habit up until now, it would be near impossible to do so within the next few months. The next best option is to learn how to manage my procrastination so that I can still get work done. The best method is to stop what I am doing and start working for just 5 minutes.
Plus, I am working with Pedro to organize a teacher panel on Thursday. Do you know of any teachers who would be willing to be on a panel? I truly believe in the value of connecting our teacher to teachers and leaders in this region. Thanks for the time spent reading this message and I look forward to hearing from you.
The National Honors Society has been a constant but distant presence in my life ever since I was in middle school. Every once in awhile, teachers would mention our GPAs and tell us to keep them up if we wanted to be accepted into NHS, or they would attempt to coax us into behaving better by telling us that the National Honors Society frowned upon our current behavior. Back then, NHS was a prospective part of my future, and I didn’t worry too much about preparing. In my first two years of high school, I watched my fellow students in NHS work to keep up their grades up and to meet the volunteer requirements. I watched them and waited my turn to join them, because after learning what the National Honors Society really was and what it stood for,
Every teacher has a website where parents can find important curriculum information such as daily schedule, teacher’s contact information and updates. Teachers are required to send a “Wednesday Folder” every Wednesday. This folder contains any newsletters or flyers distributed by the district or the school. In addition to this, this folder also consists of graded worksheets from the previous week and a chart that has individual feedback for conduct and performance for every child. The students are required to show these folders to their parents and returned signed folders the next day which earns them two tickets that can be redeemed for Prixes or perks (discussed in part 2).
Why Students Shouldn’t Have Homework There are around 365 days in a year, and in a school year, there are around 180 days. From the beginning of the school year to the end, the most common thing that students least like, is homework. Coming home after a long day of school, then having responsibilities to do at home, not to mention some students have after school activities which take up around 2 hours if not more. Homework for students is a barrier that makes it difficult for them to have any kind of social life, or spend time with their family. There are many reasons why students shouldn’t have homework, during this essay people will learn why having homework isn’t helping the student, except making things more difficult for them.
So that was kind of how the daily routine went for all of elementary. Every day after school we sat down together and worked on the school work that would always be giving me trouble whether it was a spelling test or some math homework. Most conversations went like “Your brother Erik can do it just fine, why can't you?” or “Everyone else in class understands this just fine, so that means you aren’t trying enough.” Eventually things started to click it started slowly at first like “Wow Isaac you did ok on this spelling bee.”
I continued to come prepared to class. I’d always have a Chromebook, a notebook, and a writing utensil on me, along with any book that we were reading and a completed homework assignment. I strived to hold myself accountable and get all assignments done on-time using the time allotted to me. I also made myself responsible for my own success, by putting in more time that I ever have this year, whether it was going to the practice AP test on Saturday morning and getting things completed at home. I tried to focus on the quality of my work, getting it done a few days ahead of the due date
This led to me not retaining any of the information since I was trying to learn the material over a short period of time. Additionally, I became stressed out since studying for long sessions right before a test didn’t give me any room for my mind to breathe. With these 2 techniques, I hope to see an improvement in my time management. Day 1 (Tuesday)
No Math At All Written by Donna M. Miller Donna Miller’s Dedication: Dedicated to Diane Schroeder-mentor, encourager, friend Joshua Hardman’s Dedication To my wonderful family for their unending support, I love you all so much. Also, to any child who reads this book, you can make your dreams come true if you truly believe that you can. “Oh, no,” said Andrew, “This can’t be good.”
If the teacher speaks every time, students won’t learn anything because we are telling them how to solve and work on the word problem. If the students work and we assist them through question, they will understand how to solve the problem. In my first year of teaching, I was talking and giving students everything they needed to know. In this new school year, I will take my students and use the real world activities. For example: Let the students walk around and use the materials to measure the things they see in their campus.
Therefore, emails, newsletters, sign-up sheets, or phone call reminders can be given a month in advance. (Scully, Barbour, & King, 2015) A great tool teachers can use to assist the parents with academic involvement is to always have an open door policy. Teachers should encourage all parents to volunteer or advocate for all students. Reminding parents that fifteen minutes you spent with your child or someone else’s might change the child’s outlook on their education.
My teacher said, "that I 'll give her a test about topics we learned throughout the term, and she can make up the things she missed, that she never made up. What a relief? I said to myself. My ELL teacher knew what I had to do about my grades, so she helped me out too. I came after school, early morning, and anytime I was free to prepare for the test.
4a – After the delivering lessons, Miss Hannan assessed the instructional session and provided suggestions to improve upcoming lessons. 4b – Miss Hannan collaborated with the cooperating teacher for an efficient and effective process of recording and maintaining accurate assessment for each student. 4c – Miss Hannan described that parents and teachers are “ultimate teammates” in a student’s education. She kept parents informed by a weekly newsletter that was written by students. Understanding that parents need to be made aware of their child’s progress, Miss Hannan communicated positive and areas of challenges by sending notes and emails to parents.
