The Plastics soon take interest in Cady ask her to sit with them at lunch. Thanks to that we learn all about the discourse community of The Plastics. According to John Swales, there are six characteristics of a discourse community which I will discuss and use The Plastics as an example. The first characteristic of a discourse community according to Swales is that they have a broadly agreed set

A classroom should be filled with a wide variety of languages, experiences, and cultural diversity. An effective teacher understands the importance of culturally responsive teaching, and recognizes the significance of including students ' cultural references in all aspects of learning. Having an enriching classroom that engages all students does not mean making judgments about a student’s culture based on their skin color, gender, or socioeconomic status, rather it means knowing each student in a way that is individualized. According to the authors of The First Day of School: How to be an Effective Teacher Harry Wong, race, gender, religion, financial statue, and skin color is the least important factor determining a student’s achievement. Moreover, demographics and culture are not an excuse for students’ lack of achievement.
Teachers can learn about different cultures through many resources, but the most useful way to learn about students’ cultures is to look to the community. Students, parents, and community leaders are all useful sources for information about a student’s home culture. Information that is important for creating a culturally responsive learning environment include values, attitudes, and habits. Once a teacher has familiarized themselves with their students’ cultures, there are several strategies that can be used to create a responsive learning environment. Self-Assessment According to Anderson & Madigan (2005), the first strategy or step that should be taken in creating a culturally responsive learning environment is teacher self-assessment.

Within my lesson I will utilize many aspects of the “MUSIC” mnemonic, also known as empowering students, fostering success, stimulating interest, and showing and promoting care in my lesson, to help students be successful in the classroom. My lesson will empower my students because they will feel as though they have a sense of control within the lesson. For example, within the lesson, the students will be able to make choices about the Decision Making Hierarchy chart and the two-page essay. The students can decide for themselves what types of concepts they want to discuss on the essay, and they can also decide what types of alternative choices Victor Frankenstein could have made on the chart. Furthermore, the students can personally relate
I will provide books with different cultural and languages, so children will have a sense of inclusion in their classroom. SLO IV: I invite children in my classroom to share and read their home language book. SLO V: I have learned from this class is good communication will help me to have better relationship with people that are around me. I have never known that the children’s earliest language experiences will be their first movements, their babbling, cooing, and speaking words will be precursors of their later language and literacy learning. Therefore, this course has impacted my thoughts about
All students deserve to be treated fairly as individuals. When considering the diversity of the class members, we will celebrate the uniqueness that the differences contribute. Because I have high expectations that all my children can be successful, adjustments may be necessary because everyone is not the same (Burden, 2017, p. 115). It is vital that a spirit of understanding and edification is active amongst the students and from the teacher (Romans 14:19, King James Version) to produce fruits of mutual respect: reduced bias, positive academic outcomes, enhanced problem solving, and healthy group dynamics (Cousik, 2015, p. 54). For differences that stem from culture, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, the adjustments will involve bridging the cultural gap between the students’ diversity and the curriculum.
A lot of the reasons that I want to be a math teacher line up with what Mrs. Coty said as well.

I wanted to start a club about cups. Ever since I was 7 years old I wanted to start a club for cupstacking and teach others this wonderful skill. Cupstacking involved stacking cups in sequences while also trying to get the fastest time possible. It started in the summer of 2015 and I taught summer camp children cupstacking just for fun. Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor.

During my restaurant training program in high school, we use a lot of training and job aids throughout the course. We had guest speakers from inside the restaurant industry come to our class and give lectures on the ins and outs of the restaurant operation, how to apply for restaurant jobs, the type of skills restaurant employers look for,etc. we also used restaurant simulation software to help create the idea of what a specifically themed restaurant might look like. For example, if we wanted to create a family themed restaurant similar to let 's say, Dave N Busters the simulation software on the CD would create a scenario to fit our ideal image for our eating establishment. We also use standard job aids such as textbooks, Internet websites and
