writing by hand helps students remember the material and the use of technology can affect the way students learn and live, younger children benefit from writing, and researchers have proven that students test better by writing their notes makes textbooks and paper/pencils the better option.
Writing notes helps students remember the material better than typing notes. For example, a study has proven that using pen and paper to take notes instead of a laptop boosts memory and the ability to retain and understand concepts (Borreli 1). In other words, writing notes helps students remember and understand the material. If, writing notes helps students remember the material, then schools should still be using paper and pencil. According to Borreli, since writing by hand takes…
This course addressed different assessment strategies, both formative and summative, to help me evaluate what students have learned in my classroom. The standard paper/pencil test to assess student learning is no longer the norm. There are various ways I can assess a student’s learning that will not take a lot of time or planning. Today’s advances in technology provide me with a broad range of different strategies.
Proposition 1: Teachers are committed to students and their learning.
Point out the different shapes, patterns, and anything thing else that might give them ideas for their picture.
7. Tell the students that they need to use a pencil to create their picture and outline it in marker, but that they can color and/or paint any color they want as well as create anything in their own picture. (please stress that their picture should include shapes/patterns)
1. Pass out drawing paper. (other materials will already be out for students to use)
2. Have the…
have had an afterschool snack and have settled into the family living room with their laptops, phones and tablets. Two of the three children lay on the overstuffed leather sectional while the other relaxes in Dad's recliner. I sat in a rocking chair nearby taking notes on my observations. Little conversation is spoken between the three. Mostly a "done with math," "done with history", or a loud laugh is blurted occasionally during the hour I observed. I couldn’t help but to notice I was the…
I didn’t have a computer or any digital technologies that I have today. I got my first computer during middle school and before that I had always used my favorite pencil and paper. Every day I would come back from school and start writing in my journal. I would talk about all the experiences and adventures I encountered in school that day. My journal was very precious to me because I enjoyed writing about my day or what my goals were at the time. As I grew older, I started to dislike reading…
The early memory that I have with composing is drawing with color pencils and crayons. When I was at age four I remember my mother had brought me a book of pictures and a set of color pencils. I learned to color the pictures inside the picture book and that time I was not that good with coloring I always miss a spot or the colors comes out the pictures. When I went to school in my fist grade we have an Art teacher and she asks each one of us to draw a picture of a family or a house and a…
James did not look up. Mark began talking loud, Grace walked over to him and said,
“Please be respectful of the other dreamers.”
Chris then said,
“How much longer Miss [Grace]?”
“15 more minutes and then we can play 8 Ball Pool.”
“10 more minutes?”
“I think 12 would work?”
“Ok 12 more minutes and then we can do classroom bounding.”
I looked at James who was looking at Chris and said,
“Let’s try to read two more…
will be picked up and banged together, and often small towers can be made using bricks. Children enjoy feeding themselves with either finger foods, or attempting to use a spoon, and at this stage drinking cups can be introduced to be used with both hands.
2 – 3 Years:
At this point mark making will have progressed to scribbles on paper as they begin to use pencils correctly and hold them in a palmer grasp. They can walk up and down stairs with both feet on one step at a time, and can run…
Saturday Studio offered Sebastian opportunities to explore, make/play, and share a video game he made. The purpose of this study was to examine how Saturday Studio supported and/or confounded the development of personal interests. This section highlights two key themes and suggests implications for future research. The two themes discussed are: (1) Saturday Studio’s environment supported Sebastian’s interest in making a video game and (2) this experience suggests a purpose-driven arts…
In the beginning of my first college course semester, I had no idea what my professor meant when she referred to brainstorming. I did however research what brainstorming consisted of. I feel as if I have grown a great deal in my abilities to get my ideas from my thoughts on to actual paper. I honestly have never been challenged as much as I have in the English composition class.
In my first essay about world events, I completely drew a blank as to what I should write about. I could not even…
