Yet, this brings up the next problem, a poorly designed lesson for any student with disability or trouble learning. This lesson plan’s attempt at prompting student learning is great in theory, but real classrooms would never be able to execute it. The main reason, is again its lack of thought for students with learning issues or even students not comfortable with the English language. To make this more simply put, if any part of the grade depends on students truly understand the information they…
future. Knowledge gained from prior actions, and their consequences after, are vital in survival and preparation for upcoming tribulations. In August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson, this artful theater production expresses how the past provides the necessary understanding to prepare for the following difficulties. Bernice in The Piano Lesson conveys how the past, and former problems— such as her husband’s death— are astoundingly significant towards overcoming obstacles that will come. Past…

Focus of Instruction
Lesson 3: Creating the triorama
Introduction/Setting the Purpose:
Over the past few days, we have worked to research information about various habitats, its animals, and the danger they face for our trioramas and public service announcements. Today, we are going to summarize all the information that we gathered to begin creating our trioramas (instructions at the end of lesson 3).

Teacher-centered instruction/planning is strategies that reflect direct instruction to students. The lesson planning for teacher-centered comes from behavior objectives, task analysis, and instructional taxonomies. Bloom’s taxonomy classifies educational objectives into three domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. For the instruction part of this system, it can be done in three different ways, advance organizers, expository advance organizers, and comparative advance…
Lessons from the Classroom
“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”
Aristotle summed up well what the reflections that follow are about. The Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) course introduces many important lessons. However, the most significant ones are learnt by putting the theory into practice in the classroom:

traditions or heirlooms that have a great significance? Maybe a great-great grandmother’s ring or an instrument that has been in the family for years. These parts of your history help shape who you are and who your family is. In August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson, Berniece Charles denies and avoids her family’s history by not playing the piano and rejecting the existence of the Ghosts of the Yellow Dog. This reveals how embracing the past can be beneficial to present and future actions.
really glad we got to plan for and execute this lesson before we actually teach a lesson in our classroom with the students. I not only was able to learn what went well and what I could work on but I also was able to learn from my peers and things that went well and what could be changed in their lesson. It was less pressure to do them with our classmates first than it will be to teach it in a class full of 4th and 5th grade students.
For my lesson, I choose to do the topic of immigration…
On August 23, 2015 I taught a preschool lesson with a Co teacher about “God Made Me.” I volunteer at Eagles Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough. During the lesson I read the story God Made You. We also read a scripture from a kids Bible the scripture was Psalm 139:13-14. The lesson lasted for two hours. After reading, I would ask the toddlers questions from the book. For example, who made you? And are you loved by God? After reading we would have song time and then craft time.…
