I think this is where he is talking to different parts of the room to a make sure he has authority over all of the students and to reiterate that he is ready for the lesson to begin. We then see a student overlap the teacher’s speech as he asks about homework. Overlapping doesn't usually occur much in this context, as usually it is turn-taking between the teacher and the students as they may feel rude to interrupt someone of higher standing than them. However, on this occasion it may have been because the student was nervous that the teacher will find out that he wasn’t in a previous lesson because of homework, and so he is eager to answer the question quickly and move on. Throughout the text you see both the students use fillers and pauses to give themselves a chance to think about what they are going to say next.
On-campus classes make it easier to communicate one-on-one with your teacher. If you need any help or just have a question, you can speak to your teacher during class and/or speak to a student in your class. Any assignments that you get can be completed in class, on-campus, or at home, then turned in to the teacher. The books needed for your classes are owned by you, so you can make notes and highlight the text in the book if you need. It is harder to procrastinate while taking classes on-campus because you begin the homework in class (most times) and have the teacher to notice if you did or did not submit your assignments.
His linked services include social services, conflict intervention, and in school suspension. Overall Jacob is functioning at a moderate level, as he is able to communicate verbally and has a swell vocabulary; however his academic achievement level is extremely low because he isn’t able to interpret materials for reading or mathematics. Jacob has a pleasant personality, and likes to make new friends but at times can be overly aggressive, totally impulsive, and just an overall bad decision maker. He needs support and supervision throughout the day, including directions repeated in the areas of communication, motor, and academics. At present, he is in a self -contained class and participates in general education specialty classes.
Assignment 5: Observation Summary Summary of Observation in Mr. Foster’s 2nd Grade Class Before observing in Mr. Foster’s room, Mr. Foster had already given me a word of wisdom when I asked to observe: “The second graders will tire you out if you do not keep them busy.” He also said that I was welcome to work in his classroom if I wanted to, and said that the classroom could use a young soul every once in a while. I entered the room while the students were busying completing an assignment in the classroom. I planted myself at the back of the classroom at an unused table. After the students had completed their assignments, Mr. Foster announced that she was going to introduce to the students the tall young man who had entered the class. I went to the front of the classroom and introduced myself as James Williams.
Some academics come naturally to students and if they are outnumbered by those that don’t comprehend the lesson, then they may receive a poor grade. In the same manner if a student is outnumbered by intellectual student then they would receive a grade they did not earn. I have seen a few children in the classroom who can read really well and it would not be fair to those few students if they received a low grade because the majority of the class does not know how to read well yet. Another downside to group grading is that sometimes you find that some people work harder than others. In college as well as in kindergarten you find students that put forth no effort, when this happens you have students who are going to have to work harder to pick up the slack.

During the class on reading and the brain we discussed what reading was and the five areas of reading. The brain is not naturally able to read; we must train and practice it to be able to derived meaning from text. Based on this statement alone I can now see how reading and literacy are similar. During the class on comprehension and reading and writing the notes and videos really helped me tie both literacy and reading together. When we watch the videos the teachers were thinking out loud and discussing the little voice in her head that tells her things while she is reading, like “oh I have no idea what I just read” or “hum I wonder who this person is?” or “wow that’s neat!”.
As the students read books and did their homework, they began to recognize the value of school. Furthermore, Mr. Clark implements an unusual orthodox, out of the box instructional teaching strategies to motivate students.
