Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened. Going through my papers I found I wasn’t very good at reading. At least that’s what I thought at first. I was reading my teachers comments and they all basically stated that I needed to concentrate and I would be fine. The first paper I came across was the results of a pre-reading composite test from kindergarten.
This program will be especially important if students are reluctant readers or are not accustomed to reading independently for sustained periods of time. The teacher should monitor this reading, making sure to incorporate both oral and written responses to the text. Responses may be initiated through a variety of strategies, including response logs, dialogue letters or journals, informal discussions at the end of the reading focus time, and book talks. Whatever the strategy used, students should be able to demonstrate comprehension, interpretation, and analysis upon the request of the teacher; acquisition of such skills should be charted on the Skills Index BLM. The teacher will assess student engagement in this program by accessing the student log of readings, their responses,
Ms. Smith encourages interaction when students fail to pickup graded homework assignments and need to ask for them after class. This practice helps provide an opportunity for Ms. Smith to interact with the student regarding their homework. Ms. Smith encourages feedback by promoting students with the use of an appeal process when they believe a mistake has been made on their homework. In a second grade class, Ms. Smith’s homework policy would not be developmentally appropriate in its entirety. Verbally explaining and sending home copies of a homework policy would be appropriate for a second grade class.
With this learning strategy students may look up definition, write it down, and discuss with teacher but will most likely forget it. Students need to be taught with twenty-first century tactics that will engage students and promote cooperative learning. This paper will outline a plan to introduce best practices for giving vocabulary instruction for sixth grade Language and Arts. Number of Words For this plan there will be thirty words from the book we will be reading titled “The Giver”. The words were selected throughout each chapter as terms that were less easily identifiable for students.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Essay Assignment The use of the “n-word” in Huckleberry Finn has recently been an issue to students and teachers that read this novel in class. The word “nigger” shows up over two hundred times in the book. The publisher, New South Books decided to change the word to “slave”, which has caused much controversy. “Translating” the text has helped teachers and students feel more comfortable with reading the book, but it is argued that changing “nigger” to “slave” takes away the original meaning, and causes the story to become unclear. Although, changing the word to “slave” prevents issues concerning the “n-word” and changes the text so it is less offensive to readers.
Studies show in life we start out with a very extensive vocabulary in which we learned with repetition. In this article John Holt provides an overabundance of useful information to back his claim up. Mr. Holt noticed in extensive studies that in traditional teaching standards; a child is asked to read certain books which, have no interest to the child. After reading the boring novel follows an extensive vocabulary research and various discussions about the book, reassuring the student “understands” each and every aspect of the book in which they just read. There is an unspoken competition in open discussions in the classroom, along with underlying punishment for those who do not understand.
Kids Can Learn English If You Teach it Right In the article, “Kids Can Learn English If You Teach it Right” Ronald James criticizes our education system today as he discusses that upon receiving their high school diploma, children still lack important reading and writing skills necessary for success. He discusses the obstacles that freshmen have to endure when they enter high school simply by not having the basic literacy skills needed in order to ensure future success. In the article, Ronald James discusses a variety of reasons for success of remedial courses including the standards for passing are setup by the department, that college teachers have a greater authority than public school teachers have, and that the criteria for passing the English remedial course are very strict. Through his well convincing points, it can be said that our education system today lacks a key characteristic which is the emphasis on reading and writing skills, thus, disabling students from reaching their full potential. Firstly, the standards for passing are setup by the department.
Portsmouth Public School’s curriculum guide also includes a pacing guide to keep teachers on track. This is a useful guide for regular education teachers but as a special education teacher the pacing would have to be accommodated. Our students do not work and achieve on the same level as the “regular” education student. The writer will adapt the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL’s) to be used to teach a fourth grade class in spoken language, and first grade in word recognition. Curriculum Guide for Spoken Language Target Grade Level: Fourth (4th) Objective: The student will apply oral communication skills to participate in discussions about learning and collaborative learning projects.
Learning Strategy Today, the idea of having an education can be a little hard for some students with learning disadvantages such as foreign students where English is not their primary language, or students who are not proficient on computers. Although, some teachers use different teaching methods such as memorization, or class discussions, the main purpose of an education is knowledge itself, and the beauty of learning something new every day, or as Frederick Douglass insists in Learning to Read “Education, goes hand in hand with freedom” (46). Some teachers believe the best way to teach is by taking on the role of the dictator in the classroom. As dictators, they treat their students as sponges and merely feed the students information and
Although more and more students use peer feedback in English writing classes, they do not really understand the details, the purpose, and advantages of peer feedback. The paper report aims to understand whether the value of peer feedback is high or low to students’
