The Three Most Important Things I Learned In This Class

Good Essays
1. For me, the three most important things I learned in this class was to pay more attention to the behaviors obtained and expressed by children, I learned more information on the various ways that a teacher can adapt and accommodate the special needs their students might need in order to be successful in their learning outcomes, and finally I learned how important it is for teachers to take the extra time to learn about the different cultures their students come from, whether it be by participating in cultural events, reading some books, or finding additional ways to immerse themselves in it.
2. To implement the above practices into my classroom, I will be sure to interact constantly with my students and their families, always trying to learn

6. This question, like question 4, is hard for me to answer because I don’t feel that there was a teaching strategy that was non-helpful. The weekly discussions were great and I enjoyed being able to conduct my responses as like a letter written to the ‘teacher’. I took my peers responses to my post very seriously and tried to understand their point of view. Again, I thought all assignments were beneficial to my learning and I feel like I have learned a great deal of information.
7. I wouldn’t provide you with any suggestions to make the class better as I feel that you have already met the criteria for a great class. The discussions, group work and individual assignments have all been informative and I have spent a lot of time working on each of these assignments. The textbook was also very helpful and supplied me with a great read on all the information. I feel like I have learned a great deal in this class and have an appreciation for Educational Psychology. Not only does it teach me a lot about the future students I will teach, but it also taught/reminded me things about myself and the type of behavior I need to model for my

The most helpful things you did as an instructor was send us emails to remind of things coming up, you were very flexible in allowing me to work at a pace that was suited best during my current situation with my mom, you provided us with a fair amount of time to complete our coursework, and you supplied us with many course tools and additional information that would help us better understand the topic at hand.
9. Based on the Teacher Performance Expectation, I learned a lot about the behavior that I will need to conduct in the classroom as far as being very professional, being a good role model for my students, and finding various ways to teach the curriculum to my students. I also learned a lot about the different teaching methods such as, indirective, directive, and meditating. I learned how I would need to explain the curriculum to the students, how I would assess their learning and whether they are understanding or not, and then provide them with independent work time to practice what they have

    It was rewarding to see the improvements at the end of the day and the smiles on these students faces. One student even thanked me for helping them understand the material. They were willing to learn and it was neat to see. It made me realize why I want to teach and why teaching is so difficult. As a teacher, I might not help everyone of my students, but if I at least help one, I truly did my…

    Specifically, the comprehension presentation helped me grow in this standard. We also created various organizers and mind maps that helped sort out how to apply the content. This standard is important because even if I know all of the content, it means nearly nothing if I don’t know how to apply it in my classroom. Learning to apply the content was extremely beneficial to my future as an…

    I personally liked every moment of my Service learning, but the most I really liked when Mrs. Genson assigned me students to work with students, she wanted me to work on their numbers, colors and letters. I really enjoyed that, sharing knowledge gave me feeling that I want to learn even more in order to give more than what I already have. Having a chance to be a part of the classroom is amazing opportunity, because as a future teacher I have learned a lot. What did you dislike about the project? The only thing I dislike about the project was, that I always was in the classroom at the same scheduled time.…

    I honestly, don’t think it could have gone much better. During my last field experience, I worked a lot on improving my language when talking with students. For example, saying “I need you to” rather than “can you?” My supervisor said my language and demeanor were great in helping the lesson be the best that it could be. I was ecstatic at her feedback because it was something that I focused on improving in the past. I worked a lot on clarity and felt that in the lesson the students understood directions and goals for the interactive read aloud.…

    Looking back at all I’ve learned, and what I was able to accomplish in the class gives me joy and pride. I never thought I would have learned so much from just one class. A major part of our society is all online, all texts, emails, and reading of other people’s thoughts. It is very important to learn how to communicate efficiently, appropriately, and to always consider the audience in which you are writing for. It also helps to look into the authors mind on why they wrote things the way they did, if they are credible enough for me to take their words to heart, and how much I can agree with with them based off their use of all the rhetorical elements.…

    The question, “What assets and challenges do diverse learners bring to the classroom?” was the response that that I most looked forward to reading from my colleague because of how I share several student with him throughout the year. I was looking forward to seeing his perspective on what he felt the challenges were and was not surprised by his response. In actuality, I was not surprised by any of his response, as we are very similar with our perspectives towards diverse learning. We both understand the time and effort towards planning for diverse learners and the effort it takes to create and implement new strategies that may be a hit or miss depending on the class and the student’s abilities. However, we also agree on how diverse learner bring so much more into the classroom based on their own experiences and insights.…

    Section One I have had a longer chance to experience the positive growth that has come from my participation in EDLT 409. I have had two quarters to learn, teach, and reflect on my own personal growth as a teacher. I had to find ways to make learning fun for my student and also make sure that they are fulfilling the Common Core State Standards. This was one of the first times I was creating actual lesson plans that included the Common Core State Standards and actually teaching them to students. I found it fairly easy to have the student make connections to themselves with the stories I picked.…
