Many students do not know how to apply the math concepts of what they learn in this exam and they always have low grades which do not let them move to the next levels. Also, school runs out of a budget and they do not have enough money to buy the smart board. They have about 500 smart board donated and the company send to Joseph W Grier and they set it in the classroom. In order to overcome the failure of students in EOG math exam the smart board is the only solution and the school does not have enough money to buy the smart board because it is expensive and the principal cares to put his school in a good shape because of what he hears from the board of education about the large failure for their students in the EOG math
It’s almost the end of my sophomore year and I know Ii didn't do well this school year. I went through a lot but I’m proud of myself for another school year almost done. This year I’ve realize that Ii need to try more and focus better. Although it wasn't my best school year I did achieve some growths and strengths. At the beginning of the year I was disappointed in myself for retaking math.
This lack of challenge caused my growth in math to stagnate to a degree. This decrease in my growth academically started somewhere around 5th grade and stayed with me until I moved, in 6th grade, to Ho Chi Minh City, and my new school, Saigon South International School (SSIS). Coming to SSIS after ASD was a rude awakening for me. In SSIS the mathematical environment was much more competitive. My fellow classmates constantly trying to better themselves, but, while my grade was certainly competitive, the math team was what really changed my perspective.
So I never took art class as serious as my other classes or attempted to pick a pencil or colored pencil, which turned out to be a huge mistake. I didn’t considered it an enormous issue until I got into 7th grade. In seventh grade I attended a different school called ST. Daniel, the Prophet and from that place I realized how important it was to at least improve my drawing skills since I was failing the class at the first week. My teacher Mr. Bobeck was an eccentric man who taught more than one class in middle school. He taught science, religion and art.
Standardized Testing Standardized testing has been around for decades. The No Child Left Behind Act says “Students must be tested annually in reading and math in grades 3 through 8 and at least once in grades 10 through 12” (GreatSchools Staff | March 8, 2016 Print article 2016) . Around the time of testing students feel pressured and tend to stress themselves out. This form of testing should be replaced with another assessment because it has affected students and teachers in a negative way, without these test students will be more motivated to further their education past high school. Although some people say standardized testing is a good way to measure a child 's performance, there are some negative effects that come with it.
Therefore, I strongly believe some children need special education and full inclusion is not always effective. To me when I think of full inclusion I think of myself. I was diagnosed with dyslexia my second year in kindergarten. In kindergarten, I was significantly slower than my peers and honestly had no idea what my class was learning. I can remember not being able to count past 10 or looking at a paper with all kinds of words and it seemed like a different language to me.
By the time students get to me, they would have already been set in their way of doing math so instead of introducing new strategies, I would continue to build on what they already know and are used to. Interestingly, this course has shattered this practice. By applying the principles and strategies that I have learned, I have completely transformed my students’ attitude to math
“Why is that boy asking so many weird questions during class, Is he crazy?” “Why is he doing those questions that the teacher never mentioned? It is not going to be on the exam, right?” “Why is he doing MATH!! !” Yes, that boy doing math, is me, who had been called “Math-freak”’ since the primary school. Everything changed rapidly when I was 9 years old. I myself, with my family, moved from Taiwan to Chengdu because of my father’s job.
As others children in VietNam, I began learning Math when I am 7 years old. (E)At first, I’m afraid of learning Math because everyone told me that it was a quite difficult subject. (C, D). However, the appearance of Ms. Chi, serendipitously, my’s Grade 1 Math teacher changed my mind. She introduced, explained complicated concepts, and applied it into pratical taks through her simple lecture.
I have one student that is very hard on themselves when they get an answer wrong so when teaching I try to make things as positive as possible. I have taught a Social Studies lesson, a math Lesson, and an English Language Arts lesson. The social studies lesson was a hard lesson to teach because they do not teach Social Studies in Raytown, the kids were unfocused and I feel like the lesson would have been better if they had an Idea about what was going on but I tied the best I could to build some background knowledge. The size of the district really shocked me seeing that there were 19 schools that served 9,000 students was a baffling number. Talking about massive numbers I wouldn’t was the child to feel like they are just a face in the crowd I want to make these children feel like they are an important part of the puzzle.
