Green Bay teachers strive to incorporate culture through many family events like Día del Niño and the Military Luncheon. We plan big events throughout the year and welcome all families to participate and enjoy them. In the classroom, we teach through themes that are relevant and important to our students. We are currently studying butterflies, which will lead us to learn more about the monarch butterfly that travels more than 6,000 miles to Michoacan, Mexico. Students will learn about the life cycle of a butterfly, but also why we need to care for the monarch butterflies.
Peter’s 20 Minutes Speech: Basic Outline 1. Teach the students about raising hands to answer questions and how this practice is typical in America. 2. Discuss the reasons why we came to teach in China (an amalgamation of each teachers’ reasons) • To share our native speaking knowledge with students who want to improve their English skills on all fronts (reading, writing, speaking, etc.) • To learn Chinese: Peter can speak a sentence or two to demonstrate his Mandarin skills • To travel • To gain cultural awareness 3.
She also learns there are other ways of communicating even if she can’t speak the same language. She finally learns that she is of Chinese blood and no matter how much you deny it you will see it in yourself later on as her mother had once told her. In the beginning, she didn’t see herself as being Chinese and didn’t think much about her name, but she later learns the deeper meaning of her name and the story behind it makes her appreciate her family and
In a related example, I had a cousin who came to America in his early childhood. He faced many problems similar to Rodriguez’s but his teachers were very thoughtful. They helped him by encouraging his parents to speak their native language at home, and showing him simple picture books, and they had after class programs to help immigrant students
As a teacher, I want to understand diverse families. At the daycare the teacher knew that each household has different languages. In turn, he taught the children how to say good morning in Spanish, German, Italian, Russian language, and Chinese. I will
Ayers illustrates, “I believe that culture is the frame through which all of us make sense of the world…” (Ayers 73). My practicum classroom was very diverse with the cultures of the students which added a learning advantage. The students could see and learn about others and got the opportunity to build and learn more about themselves based on the students in their class. At Ellen Hopkins, students can be in a Spanish immersion classroom if they wish, which shows how important culture and other languages are important to those in the entire school. Students had the chance to learn a second language fluently as this created an enriched intellectual opportunity because different cultures are so important in development, by creating knowledge of the world like Ayers describes above.
During my freshman and sophomore years of high school I took Spanish. It was a great experience to immerse myself in a different language and culture. I think every student in high school should take a language course because it makes for a better well rounded education. People who speak spanish as a main language are becoming more prominent in the United States, so it would be good to know at least the basics in case of an emergency. For example, I work at a Dunkin Donuts and sometimes someone who does not speak english with come in.
My interest in social work could date back to senior middle school. When seeing the news reporting primary school students’ life in Guizhou, I organized a donation in my grade to collect clothes and books for children living in the remote area of China. I managed to persuade all my classmates and teachers to join in, even when everyone was so absorbed in preparing for the University Entrance Examination. During carrying out this project, I felt so fulfilled and got to realize there was more I could do to help. That was when I decided to conduct charity work, but not until I choose social work as my major, did I realize how I could realize my expectations in an empowering way.
All my teachers love my binders because it is neat, organized, and easy for them to find assignments. Another reason why I am prepared for college is because I have learned many skills from my English teacher Mrs. Maroulis about what to expect in college. Because of her class, I learned how to write good college essays, write resumes, learned what to do and not to do in college, and improved my learning so that I was able to do college level education. The last reason how Aspire helped me prepare for college is allowing me to take college level classes at school. This is a major reason because if I did not take college classes, I do not think I will be able to understand what is expected for college, how I would be able to study for tests, and how to take college seriously.
