Practice is when the students are allowed to either work individually or in groups with the teacher to practice a task or strategy. 2. Briefly describe the three approaches to instructional scaffolding presented in this Module. Content scaffolding is when the teacher selects content that is not too difficult or unfamiliar for students learning
While taking English 090, I have learned to overcome this fear. Getting feedback from others during workshop days was very useful because I received tips on how to make changes to your paper to make it stronger. This gave me the opportunity to practice my critical reading/thinking skills by actively reading our partners papers. This also gave us the freedom to leave remarks in the margins of others’ essay to not only help them, but help ourselves learn. While writing the unit 3 paper, I got to practice and meet the course objective of actively reading.
Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life. During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking.
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
I really need to admire a great mentor, the Professor Branch who guided me on every mistake that I do. This course is very important for me to meet my writing skill at an optimal level. Writing a paper involves a lot of thoughts. In the beginning, I was struggling in writing a paper in English. Because English is my second language after Nepalese from
I started asking for help from my professor Kitty Burroughs and she explained where I went wrong. She wrote a handout called “Sentence Boundaries and Errors” to help people like me with these issues. This handout has all kinds of information on how to see where someone went wrong and how to fix it.(Burroughs). After reading and learning from her handout, I would go back to my essays and begin to see more of my own errors. I revised my third essay that went from 28 errors to only 13.
The innate skill of critical thinking is undoubtedly lost by the time students reach third level education. However this is not through the fault of the students themselves. Our society and our education system value the knowledge of given assumptions over the search for the meaning behind, and evidence for these assumptions. This results in students losing the drive to question given knowledge and their longing to know, which Hooks (2010: 7) says is the ‘heartbeat of critical thinking’. They resort to memorizing information without exploring its accuracy.
McCarthy to inspire students to strive for excellence in whatever we do. I also suggest we have a mini field trip to a museum or a library so other students could pick out books to read and write essays on to improve their writing. Another piece of advice for future classes is to have those classes even though they pass the diagnostic essay to go over briefly the writing process as well as have them go over 20 common errors and helpful hints like we had this year those two handouts really helped improved my essays little by little. The writing class is already amazing with or without my advice, I hope I can come back and put my input one day into Dr. PHP class and become one of her many teaching assistants. I also want to try my hand at teaching her class, even though I have stage fright and I start to stutter when I am in front of people but I hope that I can overcome that and give the class knowledge of my understanding on a lesson or
I started to like it. I thought about the things gls has helped me with and I came across many things. We did the writing process which I thought was helpful. We talked about the worst thing that happened in 2017 and had to write an essay about it. So not only did it prepare me for my future essays in english, it also helped me with my research skills in a way.
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
After that they finish writing their rough draft the teacher met with them and went over their mistakes. When they were finish meeting the student went back to write their final copy.A successful lesson is a lesson where my students are fully involved, listening and interacting with the and each other regarding the material presented. The teacher lessons are thought-provoking and fun at the same time because she believe the students want to have fun and that they learn more effectively when learning is a pleasure, not a chore. The true measure of a good lesson, however, is when I can look at tests and quizzes on the material and see a good level of understanding and comprehension on the student’s
I believe a strength I’ve discovered is the ability to efficiently read history books and comprehend them. At the midterm reflection, this was the area I felt I could improve on and I believe I have turned this into a strength. At first it was hard for me to pay attention to what I was reading in history books because at times they were boring; I would have to reread every section to understand what I had just read. Now that I have done several assignments, I feel that I have mastered this weakness. The moment I knew I had strengthened my ability to comprehend the history book was the final assignment.
