But initially when you start reading academic material or text it can become strenuous and difficult, especially when you are just starting college. Fairbairn and Fairbairn (2001) insist that Academic students must read in order to ‘’become and remain aware of their subject, to keep their knowledge and understanding up to date, and to check their work and ideas and research against those of their peers’’. Critical thinking helps form and improve the way we read. When reading critical will be faced to understand the writer’s point of view and interpretations, which can be quite a difficult task to do because different authors usually have different methods of writing. During university studies reading skills is essential for many purposes such as preparing for lectures, workshops and assessments.
When I started in High School I struggled a lot meeting the requirements of certain assignments, I could understand what the assignments were about but, I had of problems breaking down of how to do what the assignments were really asking for. The best solutions for this problem was to ask for help and to start looking deeper in the context. After all that I learn, the expectation of writing and reading, the processes that we need to do, to be a good reader or
Recognizing and honoring these differences through “varied approaches to content, process, and product” is the purposeful way a teacher can create a differentiated classroom (Tomlinson, 2001, p. 7). As students interact with content, process it and create products, teachers need to track progress and grade student work. This paper is a review of literature and reflection on grading in a differentiated classroom. Summaries of Literature Fair Isn’t Always Equal: Assessing and Grading in the Differentiated Classroom
Reflection Paper 1 About the explicit curriculum Vs implicit curriculum In order to clarify about preferring of explicit curriculum or implicit curriculum, the learners must be understood how both curriculums works as a field of education. Teachers designing their curriculum must consider how the environment of the classroom will impact students. A student will learn from what is taught in a class and from how that class is taught. That student will also take lessons from how her/his class and school are organized. These are the concepts of explicit and implicit curriculum, and they help educators think about the different ways students learn so they can design more effective methods of teaching.
The curriculum where design in order to enhance the students work values where students were train according to the TUP core values that develop their skills and attitude towards work but not all students develop these core values that affect the students work values when they apply in work. In the studies of Santhanalakshmi, Prabhakar & Kumar (2014) he stated that the impact attrition in the organization is significant to the meaningful priorities of values and changes. It show the character that describe the lives of the people, understand and articulate the individual values set toward a sound decision making, Dean (2012). Values as an attitude and subjective view of an individual should transform something favourable toward the
It’s very well known fact school teachers’ job is not only giving lessons to students during lessons hours. But there is a lot of “paper work” that needs to be done and which is a big part of school teachers’ job. This paper focuses on ways schools teacher attain the balance between work and life, the factors that seem vital for them to have balanced and satisfied life. The analysis will be based on semi-structured interviews with school teachers from two different types of school (ordinal and gymnasium). The interviews will consist of questions that are based on literature review of main problems that school teachers might have been trying to strike their work- life balance.
The Importance of Teacher feedback in Students’ Writing Improvement Writing is an important skill contributing to the student’s language learning. However, learning how to write is not easy because writing is considered the most difficult skill to acquire. According to Zacharia (2005), it requires having a certain amount of L2 background knowledge about rhetorical organization, appropriate language use or specific lexicon with which they want to communicate their ideas. Therefore, the teachers have to make an effort to help students enhance their writing skill and increase their motivation to accomplish the writing task. One of the most useful techniques to help student develop writing skill is giving feedback.
There are different societies that differed distinctly from each other and many of these differences persist till today. As cultural diversity is a challenge in teaching learning process, it is not an easy task for a teacher to educate an increasingly diverse student population in school. It becomes the responsibility of the teacher to meet the needs of students from the culturally diverse societies. Teachers need to behave in such a way to overcome these difficulties that they face because of the persistence of cultural diversity. In this paper discussion is made upon the role played by the teacher in culturally diverse society.
Literature Review It is widely assumed that EFL, ESL and EAP students struggle to understand the genre approach that is a part of the writing process. In addition, students strive to gain some mastery over communicative skills. Faculty cannot take it for granted that students know how to organize or interpret ideas and express them using the target language.
It has not been given enough emphasis and attention in the learning of writing process to the students. Instead of giving the writing topics to the students individually, we can help them go through the process of writing stages. This research hopefully will assist and allow teachers to improve the writing skill of students. It will also help students to build their confidence using English in their writing and also in their communication. Teaching through this method would be equally interesting for both the teachers and students.
