Teachers are coming out of their classrooms and meeting with other teachers and sharing strategies, and asking questions that have other teachers thinking about how to have more successful classroom experiences. The final implication I think that it is having globally is that through coaching we will have retention of quality teachers. Through collegial and peer coaching teachers will find their voice in the classroom, understand what they what to accomplish and through self-reflection with a coach, teachers will begin to have an impact on their students in their
In reading and studying “Speak” By author Laurie Halse Anderson , my character analysis has taught me how Melinda dealt with her problem and what she went through to get her life back…it also taught me to choose my friends carefully and that keeping your anger and pain bottled up can hurt you more than you know. Reading this book taught me that no one should judge anyone’s feelings because no one knows what they’ve been through and how they
Growth and change often comes about when new stages of experience allow a transition ‘into the new world’. This is illustrated in Educating Rita as Rita grows with knowledge and changes as a result of moving into the world of education and middle-class society. The changes made in Rita’s life include her name, from Susan to Rita after her favourite author. We also see Rita leave her husband Denny and her social class pressures, slowly gain confidence in herself to associate with ‘proper’ students and her views on Frank, her tutor, as well as her attitudes towards her tutorials. Rita desires to ‘know’ and expects Frank to teach her ‘everything’ in order to have choice and direction in her life, ‘I wanna discover meself’.
Watkins mentioned how she and her professional staff developed a plan and take provisions to handle the challenges they encounter. When I asked her to further touch on this topic, Ms. Rodgers handed me an outline of her classroom rules and reward program. She said that her staff is a major factor in enforcing these rules. She has two in class support specialists which I will ask her about further later in the interview. Ms. Rodgers mentions that the class rules and reward program play a major part in trying to prevent behaviors.
She does not teach her students like other teachers, but she has her own way to help her students gain more knowledge and some skills in their life. The three most important things in her teaching are letting her students teach each other, encouraging her students to work with others, and letting them know the importance of communication. First, while reading a Corla Hawkins story, I was so impressed with her teaching because she knows what is the most important of teaching method. She is not a teacher who only teaches her students in her class, but also gets students to teach each other. In her sentence, “The most important thing for me is that they teach each other” (33).
Being punished during recess, requiring to take 2 speech classes to get rid of the accent ,and “ Who to say that robbing people of its language is less violent than war “ is the quote that she put at the end of the first paragraph , are examples that clearly show how she felt back then. In “ The Veil “ the author asked for freedom to dream and to do everything in life . Although she believed that she was born with religion , the unnecessary religious rules, and stereostyle prevent her living with a light heart . She wanted to change people’s thoughts and bring justice to everyone. In an imaginary vision in the last cartoon, she holds a scale of justice, makes a sign of love, and holds a sword and shield and declares that she wants “to be justice, love, and the wrath of God all in one.” The difference from the two essays are areas of focusing.
Cameron explains to the reader that, “it is a spiritual workshop aimed at freeing people’s creativity.” (Cameron, pg.3). She reminds people reading the book that she will use the word “God” in it, and she doesn’t want them to feel uncomfortable because she is talking about “creative energy.” She also explains that she is not trying to make you believe in God if you don’t, and that you will still be able to experience an altered life through working with the principles she gives you. The main idea of Cameron’s book is she wants the people who feel they are not creative to overcome that fear and to believe that they can accomplish what they have always dreamed of
Though, their “duties” may be completely different, each makes their writing all the more better. In Anne Dillard’s To Fashion a Text, she told her readers right away that she wasn’t going to write an autobiography, because it would be dull to read. Dillard knows that her work must be interesting in order for the reader to continue reading the piece of work. To make sure her writing
Most think that we live in a place where we can think on our own and we are encouraged to believe whatever we want. We never think of some obvious things that are just norms in our society. We look at women and we know the difference between ugly and beautiful, because we have been taught this. Social norms come naturally because we have been taught then our whole life and then have been engrained into our heads, just like the alphabet and simple kindergarten skills. Humans can grow up and be conditioned to believe whatever we want them to, it is just a matter of making their brain accustom to a different world or set of beliefs.
All Ms. Fisher wants is for readers in listeners to learn from her speech and do not become a part of the everyday statistic. Her choice of style is very catching. She clutches your attention to where you will want to know what she is going to say next. Mary Fisher uses both everyday language and formal languages. This way younger people and older people could understand her speech better.
