Instructional Reflection

I felt it was a really instructional video even though it came out in 1989. It is a resource that resins to issues still in society and the classroom. I liked the part about sarcasm and how the guy advised against using it because you make a victim out of the person who you used sarcasm with even though the rest of the class may get enjoyment out of the teacher using sarcasm in his tone of voice. Anxiety makes students unable to answer simple questions. Quitting in less than 6 minutes was surprising for this experiment when these students were expected to give a response. This experiment offered humor and education. Processing: pace of the class was too fast for these students but as a mainstream teacher LD students have difficult processing …show more content…
I can understand this problem because I grew up with ADD and ADHD. Everything caught my attention and I would be kicked out of class for my comments that weren 't relevant at the time. My teachers never understood my problems. It wasn 't until middle school when I began focusing a little more with my Ritalin, but I was still sent to ISS by one teacher Mrs. Cresco because i would blurt out. She had a personal vendetta against me I felt, and it was because of my weekly trips to ISS that I missed my 8th grade trip to Darien Lake. Punishing a LD student for giving the wrong answer due to the inability to process language. Techniques: One on one with a LD student. Make a deal with that student: never call on you unless I 'm standing in front of you at your seat. Look at them and thank them when called on. Ask them questions you know they can answer. After this the student will be able to survive the volunteer process for giving answers. LD 's don 't like surprises and won 't volunteer. Real reason: no reinforcement for the right answers. Chastised for mistakes or wrong answer. "Why should I play this game?" Is what many LD students ask themselves after encountering this dilemma in their years of …show more content…
Writing process is very difficult for students. Oral Expression: Dysnomia: word finding problem; LD kid happens to him 100 's of times a day; Storage and Retrieval: Problem with LD students with retrieving information and storing information. Associative Task: Do more than one thing at one time; talking and driving. Cognitive Task: one thing at a time. LD speaking is a cognitive process and they can only do that; not take notes and listen. This instructional video made me realize just how difficult a learning disables student 's education is. Time is of the essence during a 40-minute lesson, but LD children need that time. Time is the greatest gift we can give children. Reading and Decoding Activity: We were taught that spacial orientation does not dictate object identification. I realize that the way I talk may impede a student with a learning disability because I can talk very fast. Best way to break a teacher who only uses rhetorical questioning give them a student who always answers rhetorical questions. I found this very amusing and helpful as a soon-to-be educator. This video hit home with me because I was a struggling learner with ADHD and ADD, and many teachers didn’t adapt their teaching to my problems towards learning. Auditory input is a very useful resource for teachers to use when reading stories to children who is a LD. I was enlightened to learn about fairness and

    At the end of a gym class, my classmate named Justin was about to face the worst possible punishment: he would lose his entire sticker chart and have no free time for a week. This was because our PE teacher was going to report him to Mrs. Hadyk. The problem in my mind was that I hadn’t seen him do a single thing wrong during that class. Now, he and I had barely shared a single social exchange outside required partner work, and he was known to misbehave on a regular basis, but this time I just felt awful for him because he hadn’t done anything to deserve these consequences. It was milling in my mind until we got back to our classroom, and when everyone was back in the classroom, I asked Mrs. Hadyk if I could talk to her in the hallway alone.…

    For my Video Analysis I chose to video a lesson that I predicted the students might run into some trouble with. This is a very creative and summative project, which the students have not seen yet this year. This project is what Barell states as a summative experience because I was “assessing the students’ understandings, and reflections” through asking them to write their own sentences on the varies topics of the Northeast (Barell 59). Throughout the video they get louder when they get lost but I let some of them participate in a productive struggle. Since this lesson was a summative the majority of the questions I asked were surface level questions.…

    Answer 5: “Last year with math I felt like I didn’t explain things well to my students, learning how to word things for my 1st grade students in math was particularly hard for me because as an adult adding is second nature. I felt I could have done a better job explaining to my students the concepts more vividly. From this I have learned if my students don’t understand it is always best to reteach it or go over the lesson again, and to use manipulatives.” “My best lesson would probably be when the principal came in and my students are all on their best…

    Impact On Literacy History

    While in her class, she openly told me that I was not smart enough to be in second grade and it would be a miracle if I got into the third grade. To make matters worse, she kept me in during recess so that I had to redo all the class work I had apparently done wrong (furthering my association of literacy with negative experiences). This went on for six weeks. Second grade made reading and writing more than just a chore, but almost a form of torture. With one of my literacy sponsors believing I was stupid, I soon also believed this, and it took multiple other literacy sponsors and multiple years to convince me that I was, in fact, actually smart.…

    What makes you say you can read a book in English when your Spanish is terrible? Please do not ask again until your Spanish improves. I’m not even letting your other classmates checkout books in English and they are doing so much better in English” Those were the exact words that came from my teacher and they never let me my mind ever since. I came home crying that night and told my mom what my teacher had told me when I had asked to checkout a book in English. The following morning (my mom at the time was an emergency room nurse, so for her to do this, she was extremely upset) came to the school but not necessarily to talk to my teacher but to the principal of the school.…

    I came home right after school in tears because I was being bullied about my reading skills. Quickly, I began to hate school, I hated to read and I was not interested in going back. I was a shy child growing up so I didn’t want to tell the teacher what was happening. My mom called the school and immediately got a parent-teacher conference set up for the next day. It was held after school so I was allowed to attend the conference so I could better explain what was being said to me.…

    I, too, can relate to making a bad decision. My bad choice wasn’t letting go of a fish, however, it was choosing to cheat on a spelling test that I didn’t study for in 2nd grade. Eventhough it sounds quite pointless now, it was a big deal at the time. I had many consequences for making this negative decision. One of those was that I was grounded from playing my favorite game, Webkinz, for an entire week.…

    My mind has always worked in numbers not words which taught me at a young age what I would fail and succeed at. In the third grade, I learned that words hated me and that they had a vendetta against my writing. This lead to my third-grade teacher, Mrs. Lee, calling a special meeting for my mother and myself. This didn’t worry me until I saw the fire in my mother’s eyes rebelling against my teachers which were filled with sorrow. This was the day my teacher attempted to hold me back a grade and my mother responded by saying my teacher had failed me.…

    Overall, the hardest thing I had to deal with, was the ridiculous people around me. I respected them, but there are some materials the teacher is trying to teach, and I always get distracted from my classmate. My English teacher back in my sophomore year even had to ask the resource officer to come and observe the class and talk to any student that act up No teacher must ever have to ask their resource officer to observe their class. This just shows how immature students are. However, I wasn’t going to let that stop me, and still progress through my school years.…

    An example would be “I like how _____ is following along with his finger, that really shows me that he is listening”. If I see no one in my group is focusing, I just go silent. The students tend notice quickly and stop their off-task behavior, at which point I try to re-establish expectations. I attempted to integrate my instructional conversation lesson with the performing arts by having my students make snapshots for our different vocabulary words. I had previously been informed that the students in my class disliked performing arts, particularly my second graders –with whom I would be doing my lesson.…
