Constant writing, proofreading and a little bit of constructive criticism is what I expected from this course. Upon entering the course my expectations were surpassed, Dr. PHP was not an easy teacher but she was an effective teacher. Her lessons and explanations in class worked well for me especially in my writing. Giving us handouts dealing with grammatical errors like comma splices and giving us examples in class of how an outline should be written really helped out a lot. Another thing that helped me in this class is the journals, even though I did not feel like doing them they help me spot a lot of my silly errors and grammatical mistakes.
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills. I received a very good feedback from them after three or four days of submitting my paper, they said, “ my paper was pretty good. I needed to work on some minor mistakes such as spacing, omitting the work “that” when I did not need
Also, during the feedback session, my peers said that I always set the context properly and accurate. In one of the classes, I showed students a few pictures and asked a very simple question. The students almost immediately told me the answer which was the topic of the
All my teachers love my binders because it is neat, organized, and easy for them to find assignments. Another reason why I am prepared for college is because I have learned many skills from my English teacher Mrs. Maroulis about what to expect in college. Because of her class, I learned how to write good college essays, write resumes, learned what to do and not to do in college, and improved my learning so that I was able to do college level education. The last reason how Aspire helped me prepare for college is allowing me to take college level classes at school. This is a major reason because if I did not take college classes, I do not think I will be able to understand what is expected for college, how I would be able to study for tests, and how to take college seriously.
All of the brief lessons accomplished in class have shown to be successful by providing me with a complete sense of better understanding. I was never familiar with the acronym of PACT and learning this has completely benefited my writing. It has taught me to explain the purpose, appeal to the audience, focus on using proper contexts, and finally analyzing any trouble spots. My understanding of needed rules and conventions has improved and I am now familiar with how to properly use MLA formatting. It is somewhat similar to APA which I have used in the past, but has some contrasting differences that makes it standout on its own.
I made sure everyone understands and uses the grammar well. According to my tutor, despite the confusion, I created on MPF clarification. I achieved the aim of the lesson, and the language was well produced by the students. Thankfully, my detailed observation and awareness helped me to develop my lessons. Also, my friends usually asked for my feedback on their lessons.
For example , shatha gave a clear and full instructions for her students which that enhanced the students smoothly to actually start doing the activity that Shatha gave instructions about .This shows and confirms the idea practically that unclear and missed instructions impede the lesson success as well as the students effectiveness to emerge .In Adan lesson , I really liked her high voice echoes all over the classroom, in which grabs the students attention and maintain focused . Moreover , mysaa and Aya had very lovely activities for the pupils where students are active and DOING something (produce) in and I liked their spontaneous behavior and interaction among the
The use of technology proved to be the defining factor for the students' success while I was with them. Through the use of Google translates' app on a cell phone, the students were able to read the instructions within their own language, ensuring they had the instruction. Additionally, with the use of computer programs the students were able to write in English on a computer, as many students had trouble forming the words on paper yet seeing the correct word or being able to correct their spelling allowed them to find cognates which helped complete their work. Thus, allowing something to be assessed as they turned in their work more regularly. With the simple tools and the means of an easy to use translator commutation was made easy.
Using the creative styles while teaching students “assisted students to be more creative in their learning process and it is a beneficial support” as students are motivated and take interest as the lesson delivered are not boring through the ICT facilities. Students sometimes dose of to sleep in the afternoon class especially in class where there is bulky of notes and teachers are giving explanation on it. In this situation students are usually de – motivated and easily lose concentration. To address these problem the teachers can
Often, I 'd see aileen, Julio, Ivery, Jayro, Natalia, Jesse, Longley. Then I 'd walk into Mr.Halliday 's class thankful for Gorav and his smug self sorta knowing what to do in class, I mean it 's more than what I know. Thankful for Jodel, who 99% of the times annoys me and is helpful and kind the rest of the time. Thankful for Sara and Abbey for basically being board buddies with me, working on problems together and often discussing them. I 'd like to thank rameen for mentioning things that I might need in that class, mostly not really but it 's still helpful.
