School has driven me to be more ambitious and more conscious of my actions and experiences. So far high school has taught me the basic knowledge that I will need in life like how to solve problems which do not have straightforward or easy answers, and how to work effectively either with others or alone. In most of my classes critical thinking and analysing is the way to solve problems. I have learned to appreciate the importance of communication through effective speech and debate. High school has taught me many skills that will be helpful later in my career of work ethics, social behavior between peers and leadership.
I know teachers have the power to make a lasting difference and I start every year with that mindset. I aspire to make a big difference in the lives of little people. 2. How would you address a wide range of skills and abilities in your classroom?
Only having had the perspective of a student, it was reassuring to see educators seeing a problem and actively seeking a way to fix the problem. Though testing is necessary with the current structure of evaluating students, there is a conscience effort to improve schooling for students. Hoping to stay teaching in Eastern Washington, I am excited to see teachers setting the foundation for change. I hope that I have the opportunity to not only help my students inside the classroom but also in a more political way that will help students that I am not teaching. Like many things that I’ve experienced in these last ten weeks of class, my thoughts on education have definitely been
The one goal that I set for myself professionally is to be able to apply the theories in my own classroom that I learned throughout my education courses. I think there are a few that are more important than others. Developing your cognitive skills at such a young will be the foundation on which these students will grow upon each year. I believe now that teachers are so stressed and overwhelmed with the common core testing that is given each year that they are not able to take enough time to evaluate their students on a personal level anymore. I remember when in my early school years I had such a great relationship with my teachers.
With extra time it will also let teachers concentrate on more than one subject a day. It will boosts students ' test scores and overall grades in their classes. I believe that if a mere hour and a half was added to the school day it would help students bring up their grade in that
It allows them to be busier and engaged to the learning strategies that they are learning. It helps the teachers and students to push students to get their work done on time to get their credits in a faster way with good grades which will bring a smile on their faces and make them feel proud of themselves. Also, you get a fantastic experience that no one will ever regret when they graduate. Also, the teachers have to do less marking than regular high school years, for instance, if the class is significant, the teacher cannot teach everyone at once. So, this gives an opportunity to everyone who takes school year-round everyone will be able to maintain at the same pace when the teacher is teaching the whole class.
I’ve always dreaded going to English. I never really saw the point, I guess. And, to be honest, I didn’t put very much effort into learning how to write an effective argument, or any essay for that matter. However, I always received good grades, so I was oblivious to my writing deficiencies. I thought I could get by with mediocre writing skills.
Member, National Honors Society, As an active member of National Honors Society one of our main tenets of leadership is building a strong presence in the community as a whole-school or otherwise. This manifested into offering after school tutoring in math and science areas where the school struggles in terms of college readiness. I was initially apprehensive, wondering if people would show up after school to study. But, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people willing to take charge of their own learning and taking the after school tutoring extra help. Because I was actively tutoring students I was able to improve my own knowledge of the course material and continuously learn and improve myself.
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
Introduction Prior to taking this course, my perspective on globalization was very limited because I had very little knowledge and experience with this topic. I never gave much thought to the educational practices or policies that are implemented across the globe. There are many factors to consider when it comes to the process that these countries have taken to successfully integrate technology into their K-12 education system. Before even taking this course I will admit that I have thought about how great it would be to connect with educators or health professionals across the globe, but I never thought I could make it happen. This course reminded me that I wanted to give my students the opportunity to see the world from a different perspective and to provide an experience that would forever change how they saw the world.
