These five tasks, in their development stage provided different levels of difficulty. Surprisingly, I found writing the economics and business activity the easier of the tasks to write up, part of the reason for this is because I thought about an activity that would not only, assist me in learning about those concepts but that would also keep me interested. The rest of the activities developed quickly in my mind and I think that is largely because I have a ‘humanities’ brain and these activities reminded me of the tasks I participated in at school myself. The integrated history and geography activity proved to be the most difficult, I knew I wanted to have an activity directly related to the Cross Curricular Priorities, more specifically Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander peoples but developing an activity surrounding this was almost like adding extra pressure. As a future teacher you want to improve the way history and societal views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders is being taught, to provide a better foundation of study for students. With this in mind creating an activity that did this and was in line with curriculum knowledge and skills was a challenging task and I realized that this …show more content…
I found it particularly difficult to differentiate a task when I don’t know the students I will be differentiating for and according to Chapter 4 of Teaching Humanities and Social Sciences “Each students learning is monitored through assessment and teacher observation to identify the student’s progress and any problems that might be limiting his or her learning.” (Gilbert, R., & Hoepper, B., 2016). As a result, I think to accommodate diverse learning needs well I will need to know the students I will be altering. However I think one of the best aspects of the humanities is that it is so diverse and is able to cater to different people and learning
8.1 Overview We knew about the volumes in the previous chapter and learnt how it helps to determine a trend. In this chapter we will get to know the moving averages. We all have read about average in mathematics textbooks and this is just an extension of averages.
Ashley has been extending her knowledge of math this year. She is continuing to work on concepts above grade level. Her facts are becoming faster and she is applying them in a variety of ways. She is feeling more and more confident in her skills and is always eager to learn more.
The Week 4 assignments are addressed on how to use the observational tools in order to evaluate the development and create the activities that promote young children 's development. For example, assignment 4.3 Running Record is one of useful observational tools that educators can use. It requires sensitive observation and writing skills in order to collect detailed information. By using the running record, educator can use the data to evaluate the development of the child and create helpful activities that will help the development of the child.
counseling, where the co-leader can take a few minutes work on some better communication methods so that the client can learn some new and healthier methods to communicate. When the co-leader does not have a client to work with, the co-counselor can be part of the counseling process with the leader of the group. When attracting group members, most counselors are attract group members by using printed materials and websites to attract group members. Counselor can also attract clients by word-of-mouth. By asking counselors if they would know people that would benefit from counseling (Corey, Corey, & Corey, 2014).
Week two has been a little more challenging versus week one. I was tempted with sweet tea several times which has made it more difficult. I truly expected it to be easier because I thought after the first week my body would start to adapt without the caffeine from sweet tea. This is not how I expected the assignment to go. I honestly thought I would not have any issues or have any withdrawal symptoms.
Basically, debt can be regarded as an amount of money ‘borrowed’ by one party to another. Debts that will be paid by customers is good debts. This means the money, which has already been converted into products and services can be paid successfully by customers in a certain time period. Good debt can help companies generate income and fund their normal operations. If the accountant can be reasonably sure that the total shown in the statement of financial position represents good debts, the liquidity of capital and cash are guaranteed and facilitated.
How did the teachers tie the topic of into their content areas? Darcy Poquette – English – students made documentaries about interest topic. Sarah Lee – Math – students picking their favorite fast food restaurants and calculate total calorie, fat grams, the cost while adding ingredients, and researching which exercise will burn the most calories for the portion consumed. Gretchen Lettau – World History – Discuss imperialism through a specific food. Creating a screenplay that traced the history of the cocoa bean from the drink of the Aztec Emperor’s as far as the Atlantic.
First of all, when students are looking for their classes on their own it becomes tough to find an adequate class or instructor/teacher for them. Every teacher has his/her own way to teach and that’s what makes the difference or interest of students to learn in an appropriate way. One topic I want to bring on is about the textbook (Everything is an Argument) as a student it comes to a point where you hope to do a great use of what we put in when we get enrolled in college. For example, some teachers required students to buy an expensive book from the bookstore just because it goes with the class.
Gary R. Howard’s “We Can’t Teach What We Don’t Know” offers an insightful look into multicultural education and the ways in which white educators can, and should, consider the diversity within their classrooms as a necessary part of the learning process. Although an admittedly difficult topic, the author strives to help the reader understand the problem of diversity in our schools and the ways in which our approach to educating multiracial students can help or hinder students. This report seeks to provide an overall review of the book and a discussion of the positive and negative aspects of the opinions presented. Book Synopsis
“Differentiation is not a set of tools, but a belief system or mindset that educators embrace to meet the unique needs of every learner.” (Gregory, 2013, 2). A teacher may have 15 to 25 students in a classroom at one time with various strengths and weaknesses. The importance of using differentiated instruction allows a teacher to use different content, assessment tools, performance tasks and instructional strategies (Gregory,2013, 3) to reach each one of those children. Common Core State Standards need to be targeted early on when deciding to use differentiated instruction so the students meet state requirements.
In order to achieve this goal, I will take the following steps or I would take the following actions. Action 1) identifying the pressures that have been created: pressure situations have an indirect and direct Impact on both yourself and your surroundings. The most common signs of a person whom is pressured/ stressed are firstly an individual may develop a loss of interest in his or her work, have trouble concentrating or is socially withdrawn from a group with a group situation or the individual becomes anti-social (Mortillaro & Scherer, 2014). I will need to utilise my ability to allocate time within my days off and lunch breaks at work to identify any issues that may arise within my Co-operative Education at Ogilvy and Mather.
The first reflection I have chosen to write on is in regards to Indigenous Issues, which was covered in week one of the course. Due to having a very small knowledge base on Indigenous issues, this lesson gained me quite an amount of information on issues that the Indigenous Australians have faced. One task that I found quite hard to do was name famous Indigenous Australians that were not sportsman, in which the only one I could
Once the college students have experienced differentiation and understand how they differ as learners themselves, they can begin to understand how their future students differ from each other and what will be required in order to meet the various needs they will have in their classrooms.
