On the first day I used UDL guidelines for the planning for learner variability. I used one from each section and connected it to how I used three in my lesson plan for day one. Even though I used it for all three days some varied and some stayed the same. For the second day I used some inquiry based learning in the introduction part of the lesson. The way I used this for day two is that I asked questions to students based off of the book we have read before. The questions were used as a review and to get their minds thinking again about what we did the previous day. I am glad I used a little bit of inquiry based learning because I like asking questions to the students because they can give their feedback back to me. I also used multiple intelligences for day two. The multiple intelligence I used on day 2 lesson was visual intelligence. They used visual intelligence by asking them to draw out a winter scene/ activity of their choice that they may have seen from reading the book. For day three I also used a multiple intelligence in the assessment part of my lesson. They used linguistic intelligence when they were assigned their authentic assessment which was writing a mini-story on notebook paper about their favorite winter scene/ activity. This is considered authentic assessment because they are asked to give there own opinion on something. They will be

    Just like the reading lesson I opened with a class discussion on what information text was and how it was different from fictional writing. I also used this time to demonstrate what I would do if I were given the task to write something about what I was good at. I tried to demonstrate what my thinking would be and show the students what I would do if I were in their place. I used the SMART board to create a graphic organizer and did all my thinking out…

    Part II: Instructional Strategies Applied by the Candidate 1. Briefly describe the instructional goals that formed the basis of your interaction with ‘your’ ELL student(s), as well as each learning activity that served as the vehicle for meeting those goals. Note whether ELL students were participating in the same learning activity as their non-ELL peers, or if they were working on an ‘adapted’ activity. My goal for the interaction with the ELL student was to help Ville to participate more with the group by having him complete the second day’s reading and written homework using sentence frames and a Think Aloud approach with me as his partner to help him better comprehend the reading. I wanted Ville to feel more confident with his responses,…

    Usually a syllabus will start out with a course description followed by the rules and expectations of the students. Then come the course objectives, topics, units, and dates. After outlining the assignments and deadlines typically the teacher will discuss his or her grading policy. This document should be well organized and contain enough detail in order for the students to fully understand what is required. On the behalf of the University of Minnesota Duluth department of Integrated Elementary and Special Education, I hope you have found these three of the many genres used in an educator’s day-to-day life to be interesting and…

    Within my 2nd grade English Language Arts classroom in Pittsburgh, PA, I teach my students to read using constructivist methods and with a whole-language approach. Teaching in a constructivist manner involves first and foremost assessing my students on individualized interests, ability levels, and learning styles before I can begin successfully differentiating reading instruction to meet students’ individualized needs. Within my teaching pedagogy for English Language Arts instruction, I focus on providing opportunities for students to read both efferently and aesthetically to ensure that students are reading to learn information as well as finding a love for reading (Rosenblatt, 1991). Students need to be able to use text to find and recall…

    When I first started to teach my first lesson on comparing and contrasting the students immediately began to understand comparing. They knew to “find the similarities” between the two arctic animals. I would talk with the students and first model what I wanted them to do. I believe this helped the students to understand what it means to compare/contrast between two things. The students also understood how to contrast.…

    Reflection on Teaching and Student Learning Each day I collected data from the class and students A and B. This data allowed me to adjust my lessons to better fit the needs of the class. My original goal was broad in my lessons for students to be able to answer the essential questions from the focus wall. I had general knowledge of how to teach the content from teaching previous reading lessons over different subjects. From teaching these lessons I had a preview of how this unit would go.…

    My pedagogy classes thus have provided several different learning experiences. My most recent learning experience was a close reading assignment that was to be completed in field. However, before I completed this assignment in my field placement, I engaged in one myself in my pedagogy classroom. It was at this point that I was able to see first-hand what a close reading actually is. The purpose of a close reading is to allow the student to “develop a deep understanding of what the author is saying and for students to figure out what is confusing and how to gain understanding (Mercado, 2015, ppt 8).” Before my professor showed me this and discussed this in class, I would’ve assumed a close reading was similar to that of a shared reading.…

    The lesson I chose to videotape was a two day writing lesson I taught the second grade students. The focus of this writing lesson was for students to be able identify the overall problem in a reading and find strong evidence that shows how the problem was solved. Then once that strong evidence was found, the students needed to write a written paragraph that answered how the problem was solved. I began teaching this lesson on Tuesday, March 22nd, and began videotaping the last portion of the lesson on March 23rd. This was because on March 22nd, the students were doing more reading and group work, whereas on Wednesday I was discussing with them and explaining how to respond to our questions of, how did the engineers and scientists solve the problem with the Leaning Tower of Pisa?…
