There are currently fifty-five fifth grade students (twenty-seven girls and twenty-eight boys) at SES split between two classroom teachers. The students range in age from ten to eleven years old. All students have an affiliation with the US military and have experienced multiple moves including transitions to new schools. Instructional Sequence This introductory mathematics unit on the metric system is comprised of seven lessons that should take approximately eleven hours of instruction and practice to complete. Each lesson includes pre-instructional strategies, content presentation, learner participation, an assessment, and follow through activities.
Thesis: To master the job of a Special Education teacher, it is important to have the right skills such as teaching, communicating, and patience. Organizational Pattern: Topical Introduction Attention Getter: According to brainyquote.com, Magic Johnson once said, “All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them”. Relevance: A Special Education teacher is someone that works with children with a variety of disabilities. In the program, there are students with learning disabilities, students with autism, nonverbal students, students with behaviors, and much more. There are students right here at CHS that have these disabilities and most students here do not understand how to interact with them.
It will be my job as an AU intern to monitor, help, and get to know students for the first few weeks, but eventually I will be able to be more involved in these guided reading groups once they are formed. I also got some advice from Mrs. Mikelait about her classroom management strategies. Her main strategy is a color chart where students can either clip down or up depending on their behavior. They clip up for good behavior and down for not following the rules or instructions. If they clip down they lose recess time.
Hoverer, I attended meetings with administrators as a practicum student and learned how teacher and administrator work toward the same goals from different perspectives. Although they have the same goals and mission, there are some conflicts between them because of the different perspectives. All employee has a casual meeting every day after the class so that all teachers can share any information that they should know. These meetings help them to build a good relationship with others in the kindergarten. I knew the importance of communication, but learn how good communication makes a better
Nowadays it still hard for me to concentrate, but you have to learn how to deal with that. Because of this, I always was waiting for my mom to ask me questions about the topics, and she also was aware of the three of us, not just one. Also, the environments of schools helped me learn responsibility and were also able to sign up for after school to get help with my homework instead of leaving the entire responsibility to my
Learning How to Learn Response Essay Everyone has learned something in their lifetime, most of us have done our harder learning at school. In school students learn math, history, English, science and other subjects. What they don’t learn is how to learn these subjects. In this video “Learning how To Learn”, Barbara Oakley, a professor of engineering, points out the main ways of how to learn. She mentions how most teachers use metaphor and analogy to teacher, and she uses these a lot in her explaining how to learn.
Typically each morning I introduce myself to my new group of children, and I remind them that their teacher has given me all of the plans for us to have a successful day. I let them know that I might do things a little different than their classroom teacher, so everyone will need to practice flexibility. However, I have discovered that although I do mention that I have high expectations for my students, I often neglect to clearly communicate what those expectations are. So, my first step toward better classroom management is to be specific when communicating my expectations. Examples may include the following: “I will call on students who raise their hands.” “I will teach when I have your attention.” “We will walk through the hallway once we have a formal line.” “I will take a quiet class to recess.” Communicating my expectations by using enforceable statements, will allow me to maintain better control of the
The needs of this group consist of having a breakdown of the lesson that includes hands-on adaptation of the lesson for all students with medical conditions that impair their processing of information. Other needs include audio for the visually impaired and visuals for English language learners and hearing impaired. At home interventions can help all students practice and build upon what they learned in the classroom and produce even greater connections in the minds of the students. All students in this Class Profile should begiven the equal opportunity to learn without prejudicial judgement but rather compassion and willingness to take their knowledge to the next level. Educators have the duty to justly serve these children in a way that only elevates them to accomplish tasks inside and outside the
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing.
The rationale was that the senior management level received emails from parents concerning the workload of students’ homework. The setbacks of the initiative were obvious, in particular for LOTE subjects, which require the learners to practise on a daily basis to enhance retention. In Middle School, the LOTE teachers can still allocate a lesson once a week to revise the contents covered in the week, but daily practice was much more depended on the student’s own initiative and motivation. In Senior School, however, there were too much to cover in each lesson, the teacher had to teach in every single lesson. If the students only given homework according to the fixed schedule, the teaching and learning would be greatly affected.
One of the scariest moments as a parent was when I dropped my child off to school on her first day of kindergarten. It was at that moment I had to put my trust in a complete stranger, as they would take care of my child for the next seven hours. I would imagine the parents would contact the administration to seek additional information deeming the teacher as competent. As an administrator I would listen to the concerns of the parents. In addition, I would let them know that all teachers are observed/evaluated to ensure the students are receiving proper instruction.
Before the class started Megan sat down with me and explained the new recent change in the students being mainstreamed, as well as the basics of what it is like to be an interpreter at this specific middle school. The students at this school have never been mainstreamed before, so much so that some of the students actually believed that their interpreter was their teacher. When I asked Megan what law/act caused this change and she informed me that she was not sure, however she knows that it was along the lines of “The inclusion model from the department of education.” When it comes to ethical decisions, this school’s situation is in a very grey area. I was told that all of the students at this school are very dependent
Pelfrey to think differently and look at the issue from a different lens. The other team members had been teaching in the school for at least 11 years. Certainly pedagogical theories had changed since the other teachers were earning their certifications, but they were unwilling to consider any other avenue. Ultimately, Mrs. Pelfrey told Sally that she should do what she was asked in order to demonstrate her ability to collaborate with other staff members. Failure to do so would put Mrs. Pelfrey in an uncomfortable position.
Michael is currently a sixth grade student at Northeast Middle School. He is identified with having a disability of Autism, Other Health Impairments (ADHD and anxiety), Gifted and newly identified with Speech and Language Impairment. Michael is in an itinerant learning support setting and has the learning support teacher in all academic class periods. He receives gifted support three times in a six day-cycle with Ms. Shook.
We also provide our students tools to learn to be accountable for their own individual learning, creating self-confidence and awareness of their individual success. At Ronald Reagan Middle School, we believe that a teacher is obligated, morally, to enter each classroom with
