It was my first time in an Infants/toddlers classroom; it was a great opportunity for me to see all the developmental areas that children can explore every day in the classroom and specific the child – teacher relationship. All of this description is what I observed and score in the ITERS- r book. The center that I observed was Newport Harbor Lutheran Preschool, in Newport Beach. The room that I observed was room 1, and the master teacher Miss. Robin, and the ages of children in this room are between six to sixteen months.

Another way to supervise on campus internet use and hold students accountable is to require them to print their browsing history at the end of their computer session. It is essential to emphasize the school’s computers and files may be more thoroughly searched if there is reasonable suspicion to do
I believe that many students need motivations and reasons to do frequent studying, reading, and exercising; therefore frequent in-class exams will give them good reasons and motivations to start reviewing a chapter. Frequent tests will be more efficient in classes that require a lot of readings and memorizing, such as history, politic, geography, etc, because if a student procrastinate his reading until a night before the test, he will be overwhelmed. Another advantage from frequent exams is that students can use their returned exams that have been given feedbacks and the right answers for their study guides to prepare for their midterm or
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.
They use a computer based career analysis program, which allows the student to answer questions based upon experiences and interests to help them identify possible career options. They also have a program specifically for eighth graders, that allows them to start a four year plan for high school, and of course the counselors use their computers for registration. Ms. Childs wants the counseling education programs to inform future counselors about the importance of a counselor and their role in the school, as well as prepare their students for the reality of their role as a school counselor. She feels that the future counselors need to take courses using different software programs dealing with scheduling, registration, test preparation, organization, and time management. Any kind of computer skills based course would be beneficial because that is what school counselors do majority of the
The students in my class are using the Internet more which concerns me with the student who is visually impaired. I have been accommodating this student in my classroom by making enlarged copies of his worksheets and textbook to help him with his work. I also put his notes, quizzes and tests on disks so he can complete them on his laptop computer. We have been working with Internet Workshops, Internet Projects, Internet Inquiries, and WebQuests recently in my Science classes. Recently, we have working on the WebQuest “Recycle City”.
Going to either traditional or online college is a big step in a student’s life, and teachers are there to help and guide them through any situations that arise. In a traditional school setting students are able to speak and interact with teachers, because they are present in the classroom. Students are able to ask questions about the class material or about help with homework if needed. The traditional setting students would get an immediate answer to the questions that they asked. In some cases students are able to understand course material and the hands on experience when they are face- face with the teacher.
The professors can select from a variety of assignments. In classrooms students can perform and develop public speaking skills. When getting feedback from your professors about an assignment the professor can respond immediately to the students. Your reading materials students can use textbooks and articles provided by the instructor. Students can interact directly with classmates.
It was only when I finally entered college that I realized I had always loved working with, and the idea of taking care of children; and what I truly wanted to do with the rest of my life was to teach children with mental disabilities. My career goal, which I have slowly been working towards throughout my 2 years in college, is to become a special education teacher for elementary students. I am currently signed up as double major in elementary and early childhood education and psychology in Queens College. I have taken many pre-requisite classes, as well as several courses specifically designed for elementary education. These courses allowed me to be taught by actual elementary school teachers, who have years of experience with working with children, and the knowledge and advice they were able to pass on truly helped me better understand what I was signing up for as an education major, and helped my improve the way I teach so that I could articulate in a way that would be comprehensible to students of a young age.
