2.a) The school Governors are volunteers who ensure a school is run efficiently, they work with the school to deliver good quality education, they set the schools aims and policies whilst working with the head teacher. They also make sure the schools budget is spent correctly and the building is being run well and safely.
1.Improving language which means building children’s vocabulary. Vocabulary is very important. It is needed to communicate, to understand others and to express own ideas. Building and improving vocabulary will improve reading and writing skills. In order to improve children’s vocabulary teaching assistant could make sure to provide children with a language-rich environment. Language-rich environments include the home, school and the places children visit. Teaching assistant could set up and maintain the classroom environment; support the parents and carers with the advice and resources for using at home; and the teaching assistant could assist the children on
Every dime I earn working at Reynolds Community College and every grant and scholarship I receive will go towards my passion of studying human behavior and applying everything I learn to bringing every community I can reach, a giant leap forward. After receiving my associates degree in Social a Science I decided to take a year off to work towards finding what it is that I really want to pursue. I have searched for that 'something ' that will keep me intrigued and awake all hours of the night without realizing it. I have eliminated the idea of simply working to make ends meet or finding a good job to support my family and "living" outside the 40+ hours of a weekday job. I am pursuing much more and I am confident that I have found a path leading me to wake up before my alarm clock sounds instead of praying for more time.
I strive to enhance the quality of human life through sound investigation and precise medical judgment. I hope to prolong life by simply understanding the mechanism of human disease, validating prevention and identifying the most effective treatment of disease. Research contributes an imperative component in for improvement of patient care, treatment, and prevention of health disparities and because of this I intend to incorporate practice and research.
In my senior year at UC Davis, I worked part-time at the Academy of 21st Century Learning. My responsibilities included tutoring K-12 children, designing and teaching academic camps, and building the Kairos program. During the school year, I worked at the Academy for about 15 hours each week, along with the off hours I put into designing camps and working on the Kairos curriculum. Through my time here, I worked to develop close relationships with my students, a competence which will help me to become a better physician. Additionally, because the Academy functioned as a team in designing and implementing a solid goal plan for each student, I am prepared to apply the skills I have learned to working in a medical
I deliver this personal leadership philosophy & Teaching statement to you. This is nothing but my personal belief system and ethics about works & teaching. I am workaholic in nature, which is my passion. Hence, I can undoubtedly learn what I trust, what to presume from others or students, what I expect others or students. So, in this way you can help me to become a better leader & teacher. I am a leader that has faith in my work abilities and strengths. I believe in such work environment that can be students & employee friendly and positively directed, according to me, which is the principal foundation of mature growth for organization.
As a student I found that as I observed or taught my philosophy changed. I looked into other theories to see if I could build upon my existing knowledge and beliefs. Something that would assist me in the classroom and increase my ability to teach.
Over the past ten weeks as a learning assistant, I have learned a great deal about how it feels like being on the other side of the student-teacher interaction. While I first started off as a learning assistant, I did not know there were teaching strategies to maximize student learning but after going to the pedagogy seminar and reading the articles provided on a weekly basis, I feel like I have a relatively better understanding of teaching than I had before. During my first few weeks as a learning assistant, whenever a student asked a question I would just answer their question but after learning about univocal and dialogic discourse, I now try to help the students answer their own questions rather than me doing it for them. For example, during the transformation lab, when a student
During these past weeks at the Archbold ER, I had the opportunity to put into practice many of the content learned in class. This included but was not limited to the proper placement of a Foley catheter using sterile techniques, insertion of an NG tube, and assessment of patients. Even though I attempted to complete some of my initial goals for this internship, I noticed that I couldn’t complete a few of them due to lack of time and lack of experience in the field. Therefore, some of my goals that I’ll need to address during the following three weeks include improve my assessment skills, have better communication with my patients, and improve my questioning to get a better understanding of the cause that brought them in.
However, as a teaching assistant, I had to retrieve past recollection of the course material and organize them in a logical, coherent manner for some else. For example, one of my teaching assistant duties involved conducting online test reviews. I now have a greater knowledge of the course material from conducting online test reviews.
Real Talk for Real Teachers written by Rafe Esquith has been thought provoking as well as entertaining to read. I have learned a great deal from reading this book and I hope to implement a few of his ways in my future classroom. I can relate too many of the stories that have been told in this book because this is real life in a school environment. I would like to break my summary down chapter by chapter.
Being a teacher is a journey that has much to do with learning about yourself and being aware that what happens in your classroom reflects only on how are you with yourself. Teachers are not conscious that they project into students, and that affects how things go in the classroom.
For an educator to be successful at teaching their students, the teacher must be able to asses the individual students knowledge of a subject (Guskey, 2003, p6). The clinical interview is a useful tool for assessing a student’s individual knowledge, along with other aspects of the education process. An instructor who is conducting clinical interviews are will be able to recognize the students thought process and learning behaviors when it comes to solving a problem or explaining a process to complete a report (Ginsburg, 1997, p.147). Furthermore, the interview allows the instructor to recognize gaps in both the student’s knowledge and the instructors teaching methods. Consequently, the results of the clinical interview help instructors to ensure students are receiving the best possible education they can receive. More so, they can apply the knowledge they received to other aspect of the world even after finishing school. In this interview I will be exploring my knowledge of science using the phases of the moon. This task should point out the basic knowledge normally received in elementary levels of education, of how the moon rotates around the earth as it rotates around the sun.
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing. She did a variety of questions that promoted higher order thinking. For example, she asked, “why this person is relevant to you?” “How did figure has influenced
