The nuts and bolts, as he puts it, will be learned on the job. While in school, students should learn about the profession as a whole and not worry too much about operational skills. In addition, learn about every aspect of librarianship, that information can be transferable to any area of librarianship. His advice is to take the fun and interesting classes which will help in the long term as one matures in the profession. Most importantly, his number one advice for MLS students was to get library experience.
SLO I: I have learned that experience with literacy will promote children in leaning literacy. Therefore, I will provide and display books around the classroom, so children can reach anytime. SLO II: I also provide anti-bias books for diverse children in my classroom to respect for who they are and where they come from. SLO III. I will provide books with different cultural and languages, so children will have a sense of inclusion in their classroom.
The predictability log will help me to understand the ELL’s prior literacy experiences (Lenski. 2006, P. 26). Parents can also help their child by participating in collaborative assessment assignments. I think the collaborative assessment assignments are important because they get the parents involved in the child’s school life, and they also help the child better understand English literacy (Lenski. 2006, P. 31).
It has influenced me to use some of the activities, stories, and projects that we did during this course. This course taught us a lot of helpful classroom projects that will have the students reading but also learning a lesson with most of the stories. This has influenced me to be on top of my grading, to manage my time when in the classroom, and to involve the students as much as I can. I plan on implementing all of the books that we did a log over because they are all fun and of the age of students I want to teach. I enjoyed the books that we read now and when I was younger so I feel they will be great to share with my students some day.
It is important for educators to foster a child’s confidence and appreciation for reading and writing. An educator needs to understand how literacy and language are acquired and strengthened throughout the different stage of a child’s development. Educators also need to incorporate print rich environments in their classrooms so children have many opportunities to read and write. References: Christie, J., Enz, B., et. al.
Information literacy helps students recognize misleading, out-of-date, or false information. It also helps them sort through the data and interpret it intelligently. Libraries full of books are still available and a valuable resource for students, but information literacy includes the Internet and beyond. Teachers are involve into it, they act as channel of information. Teachers help the students to know the current events or situation and help students enhance abilities to analyze, evaluate and produce communication in a variety of media forms.
This allows children to build on what they already know (p. 135).” This is the rational for choosing Wide Reading as a format for Mirabella. “Regular daily reading is necessary if students are to continue to mature as readers. But wide reading is particularly important in building the academic background knowledge that is a prerequisite for learning within the various content disciplines(WEAC,2014). The format for Wide Reading within this classroom structure would promote prior knowledge, autonomy, diversity, and routine. The routines are incorporated by the consistency of reading every morning.
Qualities from the past are most of time still present today. Which is why, for example in literature, books that are being read by students today should be read by the teacher and can be used in the classroom. According to Morgan (n.d), “Let them tell you about their world and you’ll have a much easier time telling them about yours. Effective teaching hinges upon communication, and you can’t communicate without entering into the world of those you wish to reach.” When teachers
Reading can help the students a lot by supporting students at other subjects, get higher grades in school, and teach them about the world around them. Reading can support students in various subjects. First, reading can help students build vocabulary skill. Johnson O 'Connor, an American psychometrician, researcher, the educator said that reading is an important step to increase children’s knowledge of words. He also said, “Reading is how you can find the words that you
My multiliteracy developed with access to further information and questions using technology with my reading, writing and computer developed skills and also with my own personal interest in hygiene, technology and reading. I am equipped with the necessary skills to be fully functional in our multiliteracy society. Multiliteracy is important and it is important for teachers to know their learners multiliteracy journey and history in order to have personal insights as to why a certain child is either lacking a skill or why a child is the way he/she is. It is important as teachers can discover children’s’ abilities and help with skill development. Teachers can also learn about a childs’ experience and offer help and attention.
