    Ways I could apply coherence teaching in my classroom would be to offer a variety of different activities and allow the students to have time to reflect on their learning. I will individually read, study, and research information so I can present my lessons to my students in a way that is easiest for them to learn. I can share with my students that I read and study information to make sure I am knowledgeable about the newest information that is currently out there. I think that team meetings to plan lessons, problem solve, improve performance, and/or learn a new strategy is an integral part of being the best teacher I can be. It would allow me to see how my colleagues come up with ideas and we all could work together to find solutions.…

    Technology in the Classroom: Making Strides with Technology In favor of the use of technology in the classroom, several matters are poignant. For students who are already familiar with technology, the use of this type of educational device is a logical extension of their daily processes. Technology opens doors for students by allowing them to access data and receive answers to practically any question that may arise. It also has the opportunity to cater to a wide array of learning styles such as reading, hearing, and interactive lessons for a more personal learning experience. Technology also provides scope for students to engage in a more diverse educational setting by interacting with students from different cultures from their own when reviewing the same or similar content or concepts.…

    I will use manipulatives and strategies to adapt learning and provide an engaging classroom. One of the activities I will use is Number Talk, this is a way students can demonstrate and apply their concept knowledge. This activity not only benefits one student but creates a learning community between the teacher and the students since they are sharing processes and strategies with each other. “One of the best ways for students to grow their repertoire is to listen to strategies invented by classmates as they are shared, explored, and tried out by others” (van de Walle, Karp, & Bay-Williams, 2016, p. 255). I will incorporate technology but will not rely on it to teach math.…

    With these new methods, the teacher can create a more inclusive classroom environment. For instance, with the use of Response to Interventions (RTIs), teachers are now given the opportunity to monitor their students’ progress and understanding of the class material all throughout the academic year (“National Center on Response to Intervention”, 2010). As a future teacher, I would use RTIs with the goal of monitoring my students’ knowledge and offering them all different resources so that they could understand the class material to the best of their…

    When administrators provide laptops to students in the elementary classroom the technological experience helps prepare students for their future. “The use of technology in education provides students with technology literacy, information literacy, capacity for life-long learning and other skills necessary for the 21st century workplace” (Grinager 2). As the world evolves it becomes more dependent on technology. This dependence causes a need for children to learn how to use technology. The easiest way to teach students about technology is by providing each student with a laptop.…

    Technology can be looked at positively because it helps students learn in different ways, research things at any moment, and will benefit students in the future by associating themselves with it. On the other hand, technology can be manipulated in negative ways. Students may find themselves distracted by what is happening on their computer screens rather than what the teacher is teaching. Technology in the classroom may also open up many new windows for students to cyberbully or watch inappropriate things. I believe that technology, with moderation, should be integrated into high school classrooms everywhere.…

Students also discussed ways that they could assess their second group to ensure that they understand the material. While the students were working in their expert groups, Ms. Miller disclosed that she will walk around the room and provide additional information to the groups when she felt it is necessary to further the students’ learning.…
