They are constantly judging with the classes more important so they can pick a subject to study at home. We cannot however eliminate homework because it gives students a chance to better understand the material been taught in class. We cannot expect students to master a subject without spending extra time beyond the classroom. They need to practice the material on their own so they have a better understanding of what their pros and cons. As far with parents saying homework ruining relationships, I find it sad.
One of the more difficult subjects that lose interest among students is math. Math can be challenging for some students to understand. According to Minetola, Ziegenfuss, & Kent Chrisman (2014), combining math terminology with students' current learning ability, increased brain tiredness or anxiety caused by the required focus needed for longer periods of time. Breaks are necessary when learning. The importance of Math in the world is used as a tool to help create evidence and advancements in the world today.
Should we get rid of homework? Homework is an ongoing argument between parents and teachers whether it should take it out of the system, or if they should keep it in the system. There has been an enormous amount of research and studies done on if homework helps with academic learning, or if it is just a way to put more stress onto students and teachers. Whether it is good practice at home from what they have learned at school, or a way for parents to see how we are doing at school. Whether it helps us or not it still puts a huge amount of stress on us as the school year goes on and we get more homework.
Students will match their game card pictures to the corresponding intial blend letters on the game board. Activity: Blends Tic Tac Toe Directions: Students will be in pairs with a set of a playing cards per pair and a tic tac toe board. I will pick a student to be my partner to play against. We will each pick a color for our game pieces: tan or black. We will model a game for the students.
One of the many benefits of the middle school model is that being part of a team forms a bond between the teachers and students. “The team and their students truly become a community of learners.” (Kellough & Kellough, 2008, pg 8) In order for a team to be successful teams must provide tools to help students grow. (Erb, T. O, 2006, pg 5) Teachers get to know their students very well. Since students in middle school are going through physical, social, and psychological development that could affect their academic performance, it is important to have teachers who really get to know their students. Every learner has different needs and teachers need to take into consideration the individual learning needs of students in order to help them succeed.
We already spend 8 hours at school each day, and homework will disrupt this rule, which will lead to an unbalanced life. Homework will reduce a student’s sleeping and playing time, which will ultimately lead to a negative impact on their performance during the day. Schooling to a student is just as stressful as work to parents. Adults usually work the same length of time each day and come home exhausted, yet they can’t understand why their child have trouble focusing on their homework. The pressure of having to complete their homework everyday can be quite daunting for some children, and they need time to refresh their minds and bodies.
It was suggested that I break my large group students in to two smaller large groups since several of my students have difficultly interacting together on the carpet. Their competing nature and constant auguring of some students disrupts the learning of other children. I feel it’s also important for me to model how the children can voice their opinions without yelling at each other or me. For example using smaller voice to gain their attention. Adding a kindness tree to our room, labeling emotions, providing verbal and visual prompts to support their self-regulation and group cooperation.
Students are spending more than half their day to finish assignments that were given to them by their teacher, causing serious issues at home, and even class time. Too much homework is not a good thing and can affect our lives, in a bad way. For example, way too much homework can cause stress which can affect work. When kids are working and they are stressed by the amount of homework they have, the final work isn’t as good as they intended
The “Homework Debate” has occurred since the beginning of compulsive education. Some argue that children benefit from homework and rote memorization. Others say that homework is redundant and takes away from precious time with family and friends. I believe that homework for elementary aged children should be banned, and the homework given for students in junior and senior high school should be drastically reduced. With the heavy workload, many students are not getting adequate sleep, causing them to miss out on important topics taught the next day in class.
In this situation, his ability to focus attention and resist impulses to reach the goal of active learning is not effective. When the teacher asked a question to the group of students, Zander jumped up to the front to answer rather than raising his hand and waiting for his turn. When he wasn’t being responded to by the teacher he realized he was not being effective in communicating and turned to sit down. On the way he became distracted by something on the counter and gave in to the impulse to check it out. Zander may have had trouble settling down to focus due to all of the noise and chaos in the class.
By only focusing on the characters viewpoint would have helped the two students understand what to look for. Also, by writing on the board the student’s answer will help students look back on the answers. When working on their group they could have gone back to the example, and refocused themselves on what they should be looking when thinking of the characters viewpoint. Being visually creating in the beginning of teaching the lesson would have avoided students to become confused when working with their group
He also maintained the class very well during the group activities by previously assigning roles. Roles like timekeeper, table leaders, and recorders. These jobs kept the students on task throughout the entire process and also made them more involved in the learning process. He also created a very positive learning environment by creating little phrases as a class. This is a fun way to have a bond with the students so that they can be involved with the learning process and also know when to move from one activity to the next.
She separated the class into partners and later on in the activity the partners had to form a group by joining other partners because of the amount of blocks the activity called for. The students also provided feedback when Ms. Kapeller would ask the class what the answers were to the problem they were working out with the blocks as well as thumb ups and downs to check for understanding. After the blocks, she used classroom objects as example of area and perimeter and she had the students find small rectangular
Despite being the end of the summer school session these students showed great enthusiasm to learn. The school staff was friendly as well, and made me feel welcomed. During my visit I contributed with helping the students to count beyond their own personal expectations. I interacted with them in their learning and brain break activities. It was rewarding to see how content the ESL Pre-K’s students felt knowing they can count past
The reading responses from class, and what we have learned about in the UETS, have been brought to life by this field experience at CAPES, and at Odyssey Elementary. To be able to analyze, and see in person, the methods we have been learning in class, gives me some new insights into what makes a teacher more effective. I observed the connections that teachers have with their students, and the dedication they provide to build strong learning environments, where students are learning and having fun. My experience with CAPES was sort of a rollercoaster, but I enjoyed almost every minute of it. This was a new experience for me, and I didn’t know what to expect.
