Along with in the text it also says “In fourth grade I embarked upon a grandiose reading program. “Give me the names of important books I would say to startled teachers. They soon found out that I had in mind adult books. I ignored their suggestions of anything I suspected was written for children” So he also tries to write books above his level which really did not get him “educated” as he says `he really did not understand a thing , which really didn't make him educated
I struggle at time management, procrastination, reading, and asking others for help. I feel like I do well with proofreading and making sure that I use the correct grammar, along with note taking. I have learned more this semester about writing than my two previous compositions classes. Everything seems to be broken down more, and this has helped me retain the information. My current class seems to be more fun, laid back, and the writing assignments are explained in detail, and I think this has eased some of my fears when it comes to writing.
72, Understanding child development). Miss P would would usually ignore bad behavior but verbally reward good behavior. She had a different student each day tell the class what the weather was, if the child said something different then what was happening rather than corrector him/her ahe would have the look out the window and say what they see, good use of maintaining motivation (pg 73, Understanding Child Development).As the class is mostly from poor regions of the city it was the first time many of them had been to school. Many have had little exposure to letters or math and are lacking in those areas of development. To fix this she would read out loud to them and write on the
For example, a young boy did his homework but, then he couldn't find it. Everyone and everything was gone, there was nothing, and now he wished he had a problem like misplacing his homework that was so easy to solve. A quote from this post is, ”Before everything got subtracted, in a minute, even my uncle, even my teacher, even the best math student and his baby sister who couldn’t talk yet. And now, he would do anything for a problem he could solve” “(Before I Was a Gazan”). The meaning of this quote is that before everything was back together, everyone and everything was gone, there was nothing.
Some of my teachers had a positive effect on me in that, they tried to show me the importance of Math and how it is applicable to my life. Other teachers gave negative influence and was completely unware that they were doing so. As mentioned before, not being able to do and understand everything within the time frame that the teachers allotted, caused me to feel as though I was not smart enough to understand the concepts. Help was given from friends and peers when necessary whether in the form of assistance with given work or explaining concepts that were not understood. I came from a household where Math is abstained from on all sides.
Focusing mostly on Insipid. He describes how the teacher never really paid much attention to the young boy and how she never bothered to call on him because all she saw was just a foolish child. For example, “The teacher thought I was stupid… Teachers were never interested in finding out that you couldn’t concentrate” The educator never gave the kid much thought, despite her being the one that would mold the younger generations mind. (2). Gregory writes out how the teacher shows a flippant tone, because the way she treats the young boy without respect, even though she is much older than him, she doesn’t act like a teacher, “I guess she couldn’t see a kid who made noises because he wanted someone to know he was there.” Gregory would do everything in his power to get even the slightest bit attention, even if he had to act Facetious.
Although I feel that my speech had a strong structure, I do feel that my slides and I could have done more to make the presentation better. I think that I did not present enough information with slides or press the importance of the ones I did use enough. I also feel that I sped through my presentation too fast and should have tried harder to slow down so that my audience could follow along easier. I also had trouble with remembering what it is I needed to say once I stepped in front of the class, even after many practices rounds with my roommate and study group. This caused me to frequently look at my note cards, taking away from my eye contact and physical gestures.
In A Lesson Before Dying, Grant says that he does not like teaching but is doing it because he says that he is no teacher, that he hates teaching. He feels like he is doing nothing in his life yet his aunt tells him to teach. This show we have no control because no matter how loud he yells she won’t listen to him. His aunt, Tante Lou, would just turn a blind eye. In chapter two he says how he feels about teaching, “I had told her many, many times how much I hated this place and all I want to do was go away.
Staircase Problem presented the students with the problem of finding the number of blocks in a staircase, finding the pattern among the steps and finally determining a rule relating the number of blocks and the height of the steps. Mr. Solomon presented the students with paper ‘steps’ to manipulate and build the steps while working, Standards for Mathematical Practice 5-Using appropriate tools strategically, as well as paper for recording questions they had and a table to record answers. While working together, it was obvious that the students had gone through other lessons taught this way as they were interacting, discussing, explaining and questioning each other, Standards for Mathematical Practice 3-Construct viable arguments and critique
At that time my math teacher was Mr. Hack, and he was very straight forward in his teaching, but I was stupid, and I neglected and missed the fundamentals of basic algebra. This affected me the whole year and because I have a lazy personality, I didn't put the effort in understanding and understand what I have neglected. Due to this, I did so atrocious that I had to retake an algebra course over the summer. I decided I must step up my game because it’s not worth it to me and I had to prove myself that I can do this. Thankfully after all my hard work and devotion I finished the summer course with a percentage of
