Powers began by mentioning a proposed design model for the course after he viewed the professor’s syllabus, which was in the format of a learning portfolio. The first session consisted of discussion and observation between the two in order to create a more effective tutorial model. The second priority was to implement a calendar into the syllabus thus making it easier for students to maintain submission dates and to see how and where certain general course objectives would be met. The second to last task was creating an easy to navigate website used for material transferring purposes. The final step was focused on finding the best way to assess the professor’s students on their fulfillment of course objectives.
In addition to this, the key skill ‘working with others’ is enhanced as students would have previously worked in pairs/groups. Throughout this short course, the students will advance their relationships with classmates as they are inspired to involve and support each other. As stated in the French curriculum for junior cycle; language learning broadens a student’s horizons while encouraging ‘lifelong learning’. (NCCA, 2016)Language awareness develops within the classroom environment and amongst fellow classmates. Students need to take responsibility for their own learning; higher order questions will be addressed over the course of the 6 weeks.

Following the guidelines discussed in chapters 6 and 7 of the textbook, create a working or keyword outline (see p. 60) for your problem speech. You can use the following template as a guide, though be sure to consult with your instructor for his/her preferred format. For the Attention Getter, Thesis/Topic Statement, and Closing Statement, write out the actual words you plan to say. For the other items, outline using keywords or brief phrases. Make these clear and explicit enough for your instructor to get a good idea of what you plan to talk about with each point and subpoint.

The final product should display the quality and variety that all languages and cultures provide. Although many teachers shy away from tiered learning, foreign language can apply these techniques in an easily deciphered method. To answer the question of how formative assessment and tiered instruction can work together to increase student achievement, I have found that one of my present classes is practicing a combination that, albeit rudimentary for my first year teaching at an American high school, has been successful. As briefly as possible, I will explain the process that my Spanish II class (a mix of IEP’s, 504’s and a few high achievers) has been using, and how this process has set the stage for a clear example of the achievement desired in the modern day classroom. The first stage is to provide content for learning about the topic.
It will be assumed that you have read the text and have some introductory knowledge of the work to be covered each lesson; failure to do so may affect your progress in class. Your teacher will then teach you the concepts and show you how to do the examples in the workbook thus ensuring you have exemplars when completing additional questions from the workbook and texts. Your teacher also has all the worked answers to the additional questions in this workbook and you must check your answers when you
It will be a good practice for me to brush up my English. I want to build my future life. I will be successful when it comes to self-awareness, thought, and behavior.

I must say I liked the idea of one big paper because in my opinion there is no way you can receive a bad grade. Since the paper was due towards the end of the semester with segments of it due throughout the semester like proposal, rough draft, and ECT, this gave me more than enough time to work on it. Also, I had the opportunity to turn my paper in early so that I can receive feedback on it before the due date increasing my chances of receiving a good grade. I must say I feel like I have become a better writer since last semester. I took the comments, criticism, and suggestions professor Underwood gave me on previous papers and put them into this paper.
Students must ask themselves, “What did my instructor say about this chapter or subject when it was assigned?” and “What do I already know about this subject?” Reading in order to find the answer gives students a purpose for reading. Read. As students begin to read, they must look for answers to the questions they asked in the prior step. Students will reread captions under pictures and graphs, note all underlined and bold printed words or phrases, and pay special attention to underlined, italicized, bold printed words or phrases. For more difficult passages, reading speed should be reduced.
