When children come into CHLA many have had little or no education. In this case, they work with tutors so that they are able to enroll in their designated class. This has been a major emphasis for the Casa Hogar since opening in 1996. Many children catch up quickly, while others take more time. This can be a reflection of their lack of exposure to learning or a result of more serious developmental delays.
When my teacher first assigned this, I was nervous because this was my first time making one. I did not have the correct knowledge on how to make a lesson plan. Now that I did that assignment, I now know what it takes to make a good lesson plan. Some districts banned and challenged many books. A challenged book is identified by a person or group as materials which should be re-evaluated for appropriateness, usually for children or young adults in schools.
Reading about Frederick Douglass 's struggle to learn to read and write reminded me of some difficulties I faced when I was also trying to learn. All throughout elementary school, I had to take a speech therapy class to help me learn to read. It was very difficult to learn how to read some words because of my speech impediment. However, I worked a little harder each day to sound words out right and before I knew it, I was able to read and write just as good as every other student. In a way, Douglass and I both had some difficulties we had to push through to be able to learn to read and write but if you work hard enough anything is possible.
Every event big or small, helped shape my literacy skills that I’ve achieved through my years of education. I remember back in 2nd grade, where the school system required all kids to test on books they’ve completed in the current week. I struggled to finish these assignments due to the fact of my hatred for reading. The quizzes challenged my abilities as well as my patience. I found myself constantly cramming
Mrs. Moore’s Interview I began Mrs. Moore’s interview with the first background question, tell me about your educational experiences in school. Mrs. Moore’s response was: Upon first entering school as a kinder student I remember being overcome with fear of strangers that impaled my senses with new sights, smells, and sounds. It was terrifying and it took months to learn to tolerate and years to become develop some level of comfort. It took about three years to really began to understand the instructional language of my Anglo teachers, as I learned to translate what seemed to be a variation of the language spoken in my African American home. I was hyper sensitive to those in authority trying to discern if he/she was friend or foe.
As opposed to Redl and Wattenberg 's speculations about educators; Skinner 's hypothesis expresses that carrying on understudies will keep on showing positive conduct. The making trouble understudies, seeking the uplifting feedback, will start to act suitably. Redl and Wattenberg 's (1959) hypotheses have contributed essentially to classroom administration. Center school instructors can take a few bearings from those hypotheses. Some of which are understanding gathering progress where one sixth grade educator set up a standard that understudies must raise their hands to answer an inquiry.
A big memory was me not being able to shut my mouth in my english class. The teacher was Mrs. Peterson, and I had a bunch of my good friends in the class. After the first day, I could tell this was not going to be a good class. First off, like I said, I could not keep my mouth shut. I would always be trying to talk to Zach, Dylan, or basically anyone.
(Opinion) I earned my Associates degree in two and half years while working full-time and attending evening classes. (Fact) It was very hard in the beginning adjusting to work and school which consumed a get deal of my time, but the light at the end of the tunnel was always my drive to keep on learning. (Fact) A personal life failure is not an easy subject for me, I will keep this brief and to the point, failing in having a serious relationship is my biggest failure (especially with the father of my children). (Opinion) My first relationship was what I would describe as two young adults that became parents and where dysfunctional in all aspects within the relationship. (Opinion) I will say that I continued the pattern of getting into dysfunctional relationships a couple times after my first failed relationship.
Explain some challenges with respect to procedures and routines that will have to be altered or changed. (2a, 2d, 4a) As mentioned before, grammar, and indoor recess were switched to accommodate the observation of this lesson. Students had a hard time adjusting to this change, because they had been preforming work for core subjects all day such as reading, math, and now grammar. Students did receive an extended indoor recess time after
The normal classroom management strategies such as using proximity or eye contact to target the particular student did not work. More visual strategies that the student could hold, or have on his desk, or on the wall in front of him proved to be the best methods. Involving the children in establishing a set of classroom rules can also be a way of enforcing positive behaviour and so this is what I did during my teaching practice. The “ultimate reason to give children a say is that it can help them to make their own good decisions, to grow into ethnical and compassionate people..” (Kohn, 1996) I also learned that it is extremely important to be consistent in the use of these strategies. A discipline plan should be in place for all teachers to enable them to know what to do if classroom behaviour is disruptive in advance (Rogers, 2014).
