student. Each student
is a different world and need different approaches in the classroom. “As
students with ADHD are a very diverse group, there is no one intervention
or set of interventions that will improve the classroom functioning of all of
these students. It is suggested that classroom modifications be tailored to
unique needs” (Brock, S., et al. 2010. P.4).
Regarding my own needs of growth to include and successfully teach a
student with ADHD, I can say that I would like to work on modifying the
classroom to help my student avoid distractions and make it easier for him
to learn. The classroom that I´ve worked in, are full of charts and stimulus
that can affect rather than help students with this condition. It is important
to have what its necessary but not too much.
It’s also important to start meeting frequently with colleagues to have
conversations about ways to improve. Sometimes it’s helpful to listen to
other professional points of views to enrich your own and find new ways to
help your students.
It´s hard to do this regarding the amount of work a teacher has. We have
to find the times to come together as a team and evaluate our practices.
We can always improve and find new effective ways to work with students
with ADHD. There’s always new and useful research as well as the chance
to try new things in the classroom that might be effective.
In conclusion ADHD is a complex condition. All students are unique and
different. They benefit from different approaches and…
believe. Metaphor is often used to translate difficult to describe experiences and concepts into forms that those unfamiliar with these experiences will find easier to understand and more relatable, to make the indefinite definite and the intangible tangible. The purpose of metaphor and imagery in Yusef Komunyakaa’s poem “Blackberries” is to express the complicated and oftentimes confusing emotions which are associated with being a child of African American descent in the rural United States.…
Shunning, by definition, is to “persistently avoid, ignore, or reject (someone or something) through antipathy or caution”. During the earlier centuries, the use of public punishments not only allowed convicts to be humiliated in front of others, people used it as a way to make society fear the consequences of bad actions that went against society’s faiths and morals, thus leading to shunning. Now, shunning is growing rapidly all across the country and the world. Popular forms of 21st century…
Well okay it might have been a little helpful but still very different. With my own kids I never want to see them struggle. So I feel like I am constantly trying to intervene on their lives. I never want them to be upset or hurt because then it feels like I am not being a good mother, which can be very hard at times. Although being the oldest has helped. I got to see more of how my mother raised her children than say my younger siblings did. This helps a lot because if I ever feel like I am…

up as a child physically I grew rapidly but self-awareness developed parallel to physical growth as well as interacting with others and the surrounding.

from birth, throughout a persons’ life, into and during old age. This theory was found to be most fitting for what aging means to me by focusing primarily on life experiences through early childhood to adulthood, as these are the most effective years that help shape that we become as individuals and establish who we are in the world. We gain certain behaviors through those who support us in life, and over the lifespan of life you find the people who care most about you. As we look into the…
to start by taking apart the title of the poem. Weary according to Merriam-Webster dictionary means, “feeling or showing tiredness, especially as a result of excessive exertion or lack of sleep.” While you are weary you are weak and do not want to do anything. It is like after a long day of manual labor, you just want to lay in bed and not move at all. The “blues” in this context is talking about the music that the African-Americans use to make. It was a song of melancholy, and they sang about…
Different Worlds, Different Standards
Giving birth in one country might be completely different from giving birth in another. A soon-to-be mother in Swedish hospital could be calming atmosphere with her own room and easy access to things such as food or water. However, in Tanzania, an expecting mother wouldn’t have a room to herself, access to water, or painkillers. The article “Giving Birth in Different Worlds” discusses these differences, “…the risk of dying during childbirth in Tanzania is a…
