The more they practice and the more teachers and parents instill this in their minds, the better they will become. Perfect practice, makes perfect. Most people would probably have trouble with trying to remember how they learned to read. I would have to say that I am a person who loves to read and I think that is it really an amazing thing. Also, I am someone who is involved in education and research and I think that it is amazing how learning to read is said to be a talent that it potentially impossible.
The Many Aspects of English 112 English 112 has been an interesting, and challenging experience for me. From the demanding amount of work listed on the syllabus, reading from the textbook, and Mr. Smith himself, I have learned a lot from my first semester in college. Although there have been many positive experiences along the way, I feel there are a few areas that could use improvement to help students be more successful in English 112. On the first day of class I was given a syllabus, which was an outline of topics, and assignments the class would cover during the semester. The syllabus included: chapters from the textbook, in class essays, grammar exercises, a final exam, and a research paper.
In speaking to other ELL students whose home language is different, ELL students, use English but due to the students’ limitations in their English proficiency, they expose each other to more broken English I will value the instructional power of a word wall by frequently utilizing, maintaining, and updating it.All too often, secondary educators miss important opportunities to build the literacy skills of all students. This is especially true in
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
I believe that teaching reading and writing begins with helping children want the life of a reader and writer. In order to accomplish this goal of developing lifelong readers and writers, I believe it is my responsibility to keep learning about proven research-based literacy programs. I believe that even in Tier I literacy instruction the teacher has the responsibility to differentiate instruction so that the vast array of learning styles and abilities present in the classroom will be nurtured. I believe that the most important part of literacy instruction, whether it be reading or writing, is communication. In reading, the communication is accomplished with strong comprehension skills that involve active participation of the reader as he interacts with the author to create meaning for himself.
It is the schools responsibility to be able to provide good enough teachers, who can prepare these students. In order to have a good education, there must be qualified teachers there to teach and prepare students effectively. Bauerlein questions schools curriculums and the way they are presenting “complex texts” (Bauerlein) to the students; “The more high school teachers place complex texts on the syllabus and concoct slow, deliberate reading exercises for students to complete, the more they will inculcate the habit” (Bauerlein). Students learn what their teachers tell them they have to learn, without knowing the effects the teachings will have on them whether good or bad. That is why schools providing qualified teachers are so important
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
Promoting Literacy and Comprehension The ways of traditional teaching are a thing of the past. In today’s classrooms teachers are working hard to find new and exciting ways to engage the students, promote learning, comprehension and writing. However, even with the stimulating activities and lessons students will continue to ask the same question, “Why do I have to learn this? When will this ever be a part of real life?” Teachers must be prepared to explain to their students exactly how math, reading, science, and history will all be a used outside of a classroom setting and in the real world. For example, teachers should shine light on how studying algebra actually develops stronger problem solving skills and leads students into a deeper level of thinking.
Recognizing and honoring these differences through “varied approaches to content, process, and product” is the purposeful way a teacher can create a differentiated classroom (Tomlinson, 2001, p. 7). As students interact with content, process it and create products, teachers need to track progress and grade student work. This paper is a review of literature and reflection on grading in a differentiated classroom. Summaries of Literature Fair Isn’t Always Equal: Assessing and Grading in the Differentiated Classroom
Running Head: Learning 1 Classroom vs. Online Course Student English 101 Professor Once upon a time Learning 2 Classroom vs. Online Course Here is a topic that I had in mind since I started to consider returning to school. Classroom vs. Online Course will talk about the differences in my own view between the two. I will compare based on the types of education gained, the environments, teachers and fellow students, and the type of impact that this two experiences may bring. Returning to school was one of the most difficult decisions I have made yet. There were a lot factors to consider.
