Teachers need to be self-reflective and to think about our own teaching. After each lesson I put the following questions to myself: Was the lesson effective?, What were my strengths and weaknesses?, How could it be improved? What follows are some of my reflections on various important items in my training period from the observations and own experiences carried out in the classrooms: -I have met lots of children in my internships and that is awesome for me. All the classrooms contain pupils with different abilities, different attitudes to English language and different styles of learning. I think that it is positive but also it is more difficult to respond to their different needs and interest.
INTRODUCTION The objectives of English language learning are I) To enable the students comprehend the spoken form II) To develop students ability to use English in day-to-day life and real life situation III) To understand the written text and able to use skimming, scanning skills IV) To write simple English to express ideas etc The teacher should play different roles to get these objectives of English language. Role of English teacher in developing listening skills in students: Listening is the basis to learn any language. No one can speak second language without listening to it. Students, who come from English medium, are good at English as they have English atmosphere in their class rooms. After completion of degrees, they are good at
Before I started this semester, I became heistent and nervous about teaching. I questioned on if I would be successful in fostering students learning. However, the first time I saw a student who was struggling using a strategy that I had taught him previously in the week found him to be successful. I knew that teaching had it hooks on me and was reeling me in. Each week I continue to student teach I develop a passion for the career path and become more eager to get my own classroom one
Visual, Aural, Read/write and Kinesthetic are the four styles or VARK, for short. I have always just done my own style, which may change depending on the situation or material that need to be learned. By the reading this week, I learned my styles for learning had a name. Now let us look at the week by day. 3/8/18 --My assignments came in today.
In this regard, most teachers try to build upon their knowledge of teaching and learning both in practical and theoretical terms. Training courses focus more specifically on the practical and real class situations and is aimed at providing teachers with techniques, strategies and skills on how to teach languages effectively. On a broader scope, however, teacher education and development go beyond this and get English teachers to reflect and theorize based on their extensive experience. In this vein, professional development models have gained significance over the years. According to some recent research, there is a strong correlation between teachers’ teaching and students’ school success (Diaz-Maggioli, 2004; Sparks, 2002).
I need to be aware of my students’ current language proficiencies as soon as they arrive into my classroom because that will help guide further instruction. For example, if they displayed a lower score on speaking portion than any of the other (listening, reading, and writing) then we would focus most on oral language vocabulary throughout the year. As an ELD teacher, I need to ensure that my students are increasing their knowledge of the English language in every way possible so that they can be ready to be placed in a mainstream classroom and not be at risk of failure. We do that through measuring their scores on an English proficiency exam they take toward the end of the year called
Effective reading can enable a person to expand their vocabulary as well as improve their understanding of punctuation use, correct grammar, and utilization of literary components. As a student, I have been determined to develop strong reading skills for purposes of enhancing my communication and expression in real life situations. My first year of university, I was struggling with extracting information from reading materials. It was difficult for me to focus on the pertinent information when I couldn’t fully understand the scholarly works and higher reading levels my classes required. I realized I needed to improve my reading comprehension in order to be successful not only in school, but with my career and future endeavors.
I started this lesson right after winter break. I had taken some time to see where the students needed some of the most work to improve their English skills, therefore I decided their ability to be understood while speaking English should be a high priority. It was not simply a matter of pronouncing the letters correctly, but work towards stressing the syllables and building a more natural cadence while speaking. I went with a more simplified vowel sounds to start, i.e. Long and short vowels like I learned in grammar school, deciding to learn the more in-depth IPA vowel sounds for later.
The important key factor for most of the learners in second /foreign language learning is how to communicate and understand each other? These days, when it comes to English learning everyone would think unconscious to professional in all skills. Almost improves these skills_ listening, speaking, reading, and writing are important and cannot be ignored and requires vocabulary therefore, Vocabulary is also a primary concern in L2 settings because it plays a prominent role in classroom success (Krashen ＆ Terrell, 1983). As it is argued by Read (2000), words are the basic units of language, out of which larger structures such as sentences, paragraphs and the whole text are formed. But, the most problems are how learners should acquire vocabulary
cultures in teaching English helps to widen learners ?knowledge of English as well as develop their intercultural competence. ?From the first day of the beginning class, culture is at the forefront. Whatever approach, method, or technique is used? (Joyce 20) incorporating the cultures of English speaking countries in teaching English helps students have a better understanding of it. Without knowing the features underlying each of those cultures, understanding it would be of enormous difficulty.
