The second standard in the InTASC standards is Learning Differences. It is stated as follows: “The teacher uses understanding of individual differences and diverse cultures and communities to ensure inclusive learning environments that enable each learner to meet high standards.” In this rationale, I will explain why it is important to know and understand this standard and how it can help me be a better teacher. I understand that all students are different. I will learn everything I can about my future students, so I can know how to teach for them.
Bless the Test: Supporting Standardized Testing I. Introduction Preparing young Americans for success starts in a classroom. According to the website Edglossary, “ a standardized test is any form of test that requires all test takers to answer the same questions or a selection of questions from a common bank of questions, in the same way” (“Standardized Testing”). This means that all students taking the standardized test have equal opportunity of achievement and promotion. The U.S. Department of Education mission is to “promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering education excellence and ensuring equal access” (“Progress in Our Schools”).
The period of time that I will be reviewing is coming from Mrs. Porter’s first and second grade ELL classroom. Pseudonyms will be in place for all students and teachers present in this description and story. On this particular day I was to help out at a literacy station. Stations are a regular routine in this classroom for all subjects, and the students really do enjoy this part of the day. It breaks up learning into different activities that are both individual practice and group work.
Many of their principles align with my teaching philosophy as well as my classroom management preferences. For example, on the very first day of school, my students and I will work together to develop a behavior contract that will contain the rules/norms of our classroom. We will brainstorm ideas together on an anchor chart, and then I will consolidate these responses into cohesive phrases. Once the “published” copy of the behavior contract has been presented to the students, and no changes need to be made, each student will sign the contract, indicating that they plan to abide by these rules every day, and if they make a poor choice, they accept the consequences that are to follow. The consequences for the broken rules/norms will also be discussed as a class.
I will give my own views about each principal and explain how they influenced my own practice and how they helped me. I aim to do my very best in this assignment and to give it my all. I will hand my assignment up on time. I will attend every class to be sure that I don’t miss
Therefore, it is imperative that the school finds a new, research-based positive discipline program designed to teach students expected social behavior. In order to do so, all teachers must participate in professional development to ensure that the discipline policy is consistent throughout the grade levels. With a positive discipline policy, students similar to Joey would learn and practice expected behavior; thus, reducing the occurrences of discipline problems. In addition, all students will come to feel safe, valued, and respected within the school
Argumentative/ Persuasive Essay Molly Killen March 29, 2018 “The starting point of all achievement is desire.” – Napoleon Hill. All states have a course standard to follow to set goals for teaching and learning (West, 2018). Teachers use these standards as a guide within their classroom to provide the best learning for their students.
I also believe that teachers would have to alter their syllabi and classwork fastidiously to make sure each and every student would feel comfortable. As a student, I pay to go to school to learn to the highest of my ability. But there is no way that would be possible if trigger warnings and safe spaces started to dominate the academia around me. We must be able to find a way to help students outside of the classroom, while keeping classroom discussion open and honest at the most consistent
As Vangelli states her desire to attend a school where she “could feel comfortable taking an exam without worrying about someone someone looking at my paper (Source B),” she demonstrates the voice of many hardworking students that end up with the same grades as a student who, for example, plagiarized throughout the course. In order to create a healthy environment, there have to be consequences set for those that do not follow the honor code to ensure maximum efficiency of the system no matter how harsh they may be. It is crucial for schools to provide students an environment where they can live up to their full potential and that can only be done through proper regulations that create a sense of trust between students and faculty (Source
The class would then come back together as a whole, with each group discussing the grade they gave the response and why. Mrs. Lanza would then reveal the grade she gave the response, hoping that each group fell within one point value and had relatively the same constructive criticism to give. Following this, students worked on independent writing assignments on MyAccess. Accommodations/Modifications: While working on evaluating student responses to the PRCs, Mrs. Lanza utilized the document camera to project the selected responses onto the whiteboard. In addition to visually seeing the responses, Mrs. Lanza also read the responses orally to ensure that students who had trouble seeing the responses could hear them instead.
And now I 'm going back to school to get my degree in early childhood education, wow. With the help of the learning pattern, I will be using the sequence to make sure that I complete my school assignments by doing the quiz first and follow through with the discussions and the assignments to ensure that all weekly assignments are completed on time. As a collection agent I will be making sure not to make any mistakes by being a precision user I want to correct all my wrong doings so that I can be a good agent at work. By starting a new career and attending an on line school it will require me to spend more time with my son and allow him to participate in extra curricular
I will share each rubric with my students before their final drafts are due so they know exactly how they will be evaluated and to clear up confusion or uncertainty. According to Carbery and Leahy, there are many well-documented benefits to using rubrics including: • Helping students learn more effectively • Students understanding the expectations of the instructors • Grades becoming more meaningful • Making is explicit what students are expected to learn • Facilitating self-evaluation • Promoting deep learning While I did use the state-provided rubrics as models, I made several modifications to each rubric in order to make them directly applicable to my classroom assignments.
We also provide our students tools to learn to be accountable for their own individual learning, creating self-confidence and awareness of their individual success. At Ronald Reagan Middle School, we believe that a teacher is obligated, morally, to enter each classroom with
