IPC Redux

This is the reflection on the redo for IPC 1. For this read, I was given “XXXXXXXX” by Susan Cisneros. During this IPC I took a different approach and used the advice and counsel of m coach which I hope lead to a more enriching experience for my students. During the planning phase for this, I took additional time to become familiar with the text so that the seemed organic to me. I can remember when I was in school, when a teach read I was amazed they knew all the words and could make the characters jump off the page. With XXXXXXX, I tried to learn the story and understand the author’s voice. I also thought of the presentation and how I would introduce this to my students. This story is out of the norm for our curriculum, but it was easier once I had the support of my school. I also chose to use my class with the most nonengaged learners

Once I began to read, I had 100% of the class. This diminished over the course of the read, and I would like to work on that in future. However, as I stated before, this was my class with the most unengaged learners, so to get 100% at any time is a win for me. I was pleased at the level of attention and thought as we moved to the turn and talk. While not directed at me as the teacher, some of the comments where well thought out. This may be because, I did tie this lesson to our theme of the week of critical thinking. Again, I was apprehensive about the turn and talk, but it turned out well. This allowed me to move through the rest of story, but also, I think it allow my learners to continue to process the story and led to the sharing of Brenia’s story of losing her mother (10:12) during the group discussion.

    Through the progression of this course, various aspects of history were viewed, in addition to concepts that are still associated to the lives of Aboriginal peoples today. While carrying some previous, biased knowledge on the topics discussed, First Nations Studies allowed the development of many ideas as well as the differing perspectives on each. Via the use of assorted reading selections, tutorial discussions, guest speakers, lectures, and a variety of other forms, I was able to take away a unique understanding, different to the one I had prior, which in turn educated me on Indigenous communities. This course attempted to bypass the anger that has been accumulated over the years, and portray information in order to avoid further issues…

One of the course objectives I used to use for Music Cultures World was “Students will be able to identify and discuss the differences and similarities among musical performances from a variety of cultural contexts.” After taking the ACUE 1A module, I decided to revise the course outcome as follows: 1) Students will be able to illustrate the connection between music and dance in African music by producing a 5-minute flash mob. 2) Students will be able to demonstrate the application of a number notation system by creating a 5-minute gamelan performance.…

    2nd step, Pre-teach essential vocabulary - I will plan to pre-teach five vocabularies by asking the students to solve this scramble word: OOLLHAC (ALCOHOL), but the letters are still hidden. First, I write all five new words on the board at once, read the definition (not in order) of each new word, and wait for students’ answers. Each time students match the definition with the listed words correctly, one (or two) scramble letter(s) will be revealed. When all the letters are revealed, everyone is invited to solve the scramble word OOLLHAC. There will be a hint to help students solve the scramble such as drinking, must be over 21 years old in the U.S., pregnant women not recommended, etc.…

    On October 6th, 2016, I had the pleasure of hearing from one of the most unapologetic and influential woman in African American history. She spoke with so much passion and delicacy that the audience stayed engaged. Davis did not only share her story, but also provided this generation with advice and information that will remember for a lifetime. Through being in awe that I was in the same room as Angela Davis, I managed to jot down some notes about her story and additional information about the Black Lives Matter group.…

    My approach to reading has changed over the semester. Before this class, I would just read without taking notes. In reading, I would just read instead of looking up the difficult word or using context clues to figure out what the word means. Now during my reading I annotate and look up unknown vocabulary words. When I look up the difficult word, I would find the closest appropriate definition.…

    This was interesting to see because the majority of them did each summary as they read but I had a few students who did not and waited until they finished the book and expressed to me that the summary booklet was hard and they couldn’t remember. I feel overall this lesson went well, I opened a discussion on Google Classroom regarding the story and what was liked and disliked, what they learned and wanted to know more about. Students stated in other works they learned the objectives. The majority of students…

    My Reading Experience

    Just like learning to walk or ride a bike, learning to read is one of life’s milestones. However, unlike walking and biking, reading skills are not suddenly obtained and then static throughout life. After learning to read initially, an individual’s reading skills, interests, and purposes further develop and change throughout their life. Furthermore, the means by which an individual improves their reading capabilities change over time as well. In the same way, I initially improved my reading ability and changed my interests through the help of my parents, then later my teachers, and finally, in spite of a dark period of little improvement, through my own effort.…
