The opposite learning styles, involving listening and verbal skills, are more difficult for me. I would much rather learn how something works by using it than by listening to someone tell me how it works. When any of my teachers stand in front of the classroom and just reads form the text book. This type of teaching is my kryptonite, the words just pass right through me. To help me my learning process in class's like that i need to recreate the lectured material using my own visual tools and adapt my teacher's preferred teaching methods to my preferred learning styles.
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.
One of the classroom displays is the ‘Working Wall’ and this is designed by the class teacher and updated to support and flow with the childrens knowledge. I find the Working Wall useful for phonics. However some of the displays are free standing and are only for short periods of time. The display which I had to do was one of these. It consisted of two large blue free standing boards which I displayed the childrens work on ‘Monsters in numeracy and literacy’ these boards were to accompany the childrens class assembly to the rest of the school and their
Middle-class schools focused around finding and then explaining how something was right. Teachers taught from the book and avoided answers to questions that weren’t in the book. Affluent Professional school was hands on. Students were able to ask questions to express their
When I was reading the book I was so surprised at how much Esme used multiple intelligences and different use of texts, media, visual, and other many good practices. Esme’s classroom was a canvas of stimuli and visuals. When told by a colleague that her room was distracting Esme thought to herself that the teacher in question was jealous. I have to agree with Esme, I believe the teacher was jealous of Esme’s enthusiasm, youth and spirit. The teacher may have genuinely been concerned with presenting too much information to students but through my classes at Sage, excessive stimuli is good of students with ADD because it gives them many things to focus on instead of causing behavioral problems.
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.
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.
Summary-Critique of Professional Journal Article A Lesson Cycle for Teaching Expository Reading and Writing Jessica Harvie Southeastern University Research-Based Practices of Reading and Writing Instruction EDUC 5433 October 12, 2013 Dr. Janet Deck The two newly credentialed English teachers taught a five week long summer course educating 30 sixth graders and 31 seventh graders. The goal for these students was to be promoted to the next grade by the start of the next school year. The teachers taught study and English skills to these California middle school students who were required to attend class in order to be promoted. The participants were comprised of 20 sixth grade males and 10 females which included 21 Latinos and 9 white, non-Latino students. The seventh grade population consisted of 20 males and 11 females of which 19 students were Latino and 12 students were white or non-Latino.
“A Minnesota teacher of seventh and ninth grades says that she has to spend extra time in class editing papers and must 'explicitly' remind her students that is is not acceptable to use text slang and abbreviations in writing” (Cullington 89). Also, “many complain that because texting does not stress the importance of punctuation, students are neglecting it in their formal writing” (Cullington 89). These points are valid, but the evidence is limited because it is based on a few personal experiences, rather then a large study with much more research.
going to the bathroom, sharpening a pencil, getting out of their seats, etc.). I think I am beginning to see that such “control” over them in fact takes freedom from them and quality from the whole environment. Do I trust them to make decisions for them selves? My first thought is it depends on the student but maybe I need to be more trusting before they become more responsibility?
