Customized Learning Theory: Differentiated Instruction and Inclusion in the Classrooms Katie Wood Liberty University “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtains guidance,” (Proverbs 1:5, ESV). This is a powerful statement from God’s Word that should guide the role teachers play in their classrooms. “Good teachers know their subject matter and have mastered pedagogical skills,” (Slavin, 2009, p 24). Teachers who are willing to base their lessons off of research, in order to learn, will understand what it truly means to guide their students in the right direction. However, teachers cannot guide if they do not understand their students and how the students interpret learning in the classroom.
Education is the most important thing to all students. But to help them make the best out of it, every classroom has to provide good expectations and authority. While Rose discusses his theory of the consideration of authority in “Possible Lives”, Corla Hawkins builds a strong relationship with her students and gives them a healthy environment around the classroom. They’re both successful in their own ways. Mike Rose, an American professor, was doing research in many classrooms around the country.
I believe Stimach’s essay followed the criteria of a successful argument by persuading me with strong details throughout the entirety of the argument. I think this argument would be a useful teaching tool to put in the textbook, Writing Arguments, because the author backed up her claims with reliable sources and responded to opposing views. Her argument was organized and she gave three specific reasons why students shouldn’t get married in college. Quality Sources One reason this is a good argument is that Stimach uses multiple pieces of factual evidence to support her claims. She moves from one topic to another with ease using facts from other sources frequently.

These lenses correlate to processes of self-reflection, student feedback, peer assessment, and engagements with scholarly literature. Cogitating upon these processes provides the foundation for good teaching and the means to become an excellent teacher. The autobiographical lens, or self-reflection, is the foundation of critical reflection. Teachers may focus on their previous experiences as a learner, or on their experiences as a teacher in order to "become aware of the paradigmatic assumptions and instinctive reasonings that frame how we work" (30). By interrogating, for example, teaching journals, evaluations, student/peer feedback, personal goals/outcomes, and/or role model profiles, teachers can reveal aspects of their pedagogy that may need adjustment or strengthening.
Emerson’s purpose for writing a long explanation is to prove his point about the Genius and Drill, he uses the example of Fellows to demonstrate that whatever we have a strong interest in we should be educated. For whatever a child is naturally inclined towards teachers should educate children to broaden their knowledge for it. 4. Emerson uses figurative language extensively in his writing. In his second paragraph we find a single sentence shot through with figurative language.
Cameron Dear Professor Varnum, I have decided upon option “A” for my paper, as I was interested in the tactics that David Foster Wallace utilized in his commencement speech. In addition, I also found his views on the true value of a college education to be very interesting and was excited to share my views as well. Please give me your feedback at your earliest convenience. Sincerely, Cameron Most college educations are what one makes of them and a college education is about more than simply earning a degree and preparing oneself for their future. A college education is about giving oneself the ability to have control over their life.
In conjunction, engagement theory, instructional design theory and constructivism theory help people build goals which are crucial in how people learn. Finally, revealing one main drive all these theories have in common will be revealed. The intent of this paper is to introduce a few theories that help provide guidance in developing andragogy. The environment has a wealth of information to teach. The first theory discussed is social learning theory that was developed in the mid 1980’s by Psychologist Albert Bandura (Ellis.W, n.d.).
The conventions of college writing are very complex and if professors are more helpful and patient with first year students as they learn academic discourse, students will be better prepared for all future academic endeavors and they will have a better opportunity to strengthen and develop their voice. David Bartholomae, author of Inventing the University, is a professor who writes about the struggles that students face with transitioning into college level writing and learning to write with authority in academic discourse, all while maintaining a unique voice. I agree with Bartholomae’s views on the subject and his arguments are very valid because he speaks from the status and
