Another way that this homework policy helps promote positive social interaction inside a second grade classroom is when graded assignments not picked up within two days should be discussed with the teacher. This discussion allows the student to explain the reason why the homework was not picked up and provide valuable opinions as to how this problem can be prevented in the future. A2. Self-Motivation The homework policy also includes that students buy a day planner and use class time learning how to use it. The use of the day planner promotes self-motivation because the students are learning how to manage their time in school and at home to be able to complete their homework.
When students see others doing this it quickly reminds those who may have forgot that they too need to place their homework in the basket. Mr. Collet is then able to quickly see who has turned in homework and who has not. He also has provided the opportunity to each parent to purchase a daily planner; the planner allows the student to write down daily homework assignments for each class period and parents may follow up by looking at the planner nightly to ensure that the work is getting completed. Mr. Collet also allows for the students to participate in deciding what homework assignments are going to be assigned. Students get to give the opinion on what is best for them to learn from by helping Mr. Collet collectively agree upon what material they will have homework on.
Classroom Management, Engagement, and Motivation Western Governors University Task 2 Part A1. Positive Social Interaction Someday I would like to run a second grade classroom. I think that Scenario 2 might work best with my students. The first thing I noticed was that the homework policy was announced and explained to the class, at the beginning of the year. Also, handouts went home to parents explaining the policy.
Using SEI Strategies in a SIOP Lesson Plan Fawn L. Stevens Grand Canyon University: ESL 533N February 17, 2014 The class is learning about Native Americans. I am working with their science, language arts and math teachers. All the other teachers are also discussing Native Americans in their classes. Today's lesson is about the Navajo Indians. The students will be conducting research in a small group setting on some basic facts about the Navajo Indians and presenting their findings to the class when they are done.
This means that they ask the class and as students put their hands up; they take ideas and record them on the board. Meanwhile, all the other students record the quotes and interpretations in their own books. 6) Do the same for all the quotes/statements. At the end of the lesson, pupils should have two ‘thought showers’ and should be familiar with images of darkness and light in Of Mice and Men. 7) In the plenary session, or even through an essay, they should consolidate all that they have learned on this.
In cases of that it might be best for scores to be kept private, known just to parents and the student. Intelligence tests can also mess with students self esteem. If a student is a poor test taker and does poorly on an intelligence test it can mess with their self esteem and make them feel horrible. Their grades might suffer and it could lead to depression. Precautions are needed so students are not harmed by a test that might not have been necessary to begin
As a teacher, she incorporates fun and interesting activities in her lessons so that the students will not get bored. She involves her students in social studies for approximately 30-40 minutes. Most of the time is spent in Math and Reading because they are a top priority. The next three questions were on the use of a social studies text book. She responded that she uses a book for extra support in teaching a concept; also it is a good resource for maps and diagrams.
Adding to this, the pronunciation of their words has to be clear, loud, and slow insuring their pupils understand what they have to do without any problems whatsoever. For example, when we are in class, the teacher has to conduct her lesson in a manner which we all can understand; this is done in a clear, loud and slow way. When using verbal communication, teachers use a variety of questions to their pupil to get them involved in the lesson and to find out more about them. For example, a teacher every so often gives out homework assignments, when the homework is due; the teacher asks the pupil “have you done your homework?” The student will then answer. Another example of this is, when a teacher is conducting a lesson the teacher will test a pupil by asking him/her a question about the work.
She welcomed all of her students at the door; we went into the classroom, hung up our jackets and sat down at our desks. I can remember the crayons and the pencils we were given, a piece of paper and listening to the teacher tell us what we were going to learn in first grade. The teacher actually taught us how to print our name. It was part of the basic curriculum of reading, writing and arithmetic. This is where you learn how to print and write your name and practice your penmanship.
