    On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, I spent the day at Media Elementary School in the Rose Tree Media School District assisting 4th-grade teacher Mrs. Williamson. Mrs. Williamson is a teacher with 23 years of experience and she spent most her career with Media Elementary School. The school day for the students begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:30 pm. I was supposed to report at 8:45 am as the teacher began preparing for the class few minutes before the students entered the classroom. I reached there at 8:30 and after finishing my Visitor card formalities, I was with the teacher right in time. There was also a student teacher, Emily, in the classroom when I reached there. She is there all day, every day during her fall semester. There were 19 students in the class, 10 boys and 9 girls. This was an average classroom, so 3 students leave for advance Math and 4 students come there to join this class for Math. Rest of the day, this is a regular classroom. During my stay in the classroom, I assisted the teacher during Math and reading class. My day started with understanding the schedule of the day and I helped the teacher to arrange the room for the day. The room had a traditional seating arrangement with three rows facing the…

    As I began this class in January my definition of curriculum was based on the academic coursework teachers use to instruct the information. Now my definition of curriculum is anything that falls under the auspice of the school that includes coursework, classroom arrangement, instruction, assessment, student engagement, and community involvement. My perspective is curriculum is what students learn in and out of the school. We need to teach students to become learners and problem solvers for the…

    Is Education a Waste of Education? During high school, many people are asked to decide what they want to be when they grow up. I went through many options before deciding that I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. I thought I could be successful in this career path and was very excited to begin my new adventure. Some people I knew thought otherwise. In general, I was told that I was wasting my time at college by trying to receive a degree in education. At the end of my junior year of high…

    Since no one will ever see what I write there is no chance of my parents haemorrhaging. To be honest at this stage of my life "all that crap" is all I have. So here goes: My last day of school, six months earlier, was the apogee of my life. Finally, I did not have to obey the senseless school rules and dress codes nor bear, with few exceptions, the boring lessons or illogical opinions of teachers. I could make my own decisions, decide how to spend whatever I earned. I have a rebellious…

    To make someone interested in science, we have to demonstrate the outcome a chemical phenomenon can give. To give them a deep desire to discover medicine, we may give them an unbearable experience. When I was still young, I lost my aunt in a night. My mother never told me the reason of my aunt’s death. I tried to guess but I could not since I had no idea. In the meantime, my passion in pharmacy grew, though I was told was heart disease when I had grown up. In addition, since my grandfather died…

    There is perhaps no American icon that satirically represents the teenage world better than Ferris Bueller. Director John Hughes was already immersed in telling stories of American youth when his most successful film, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, was released in 1986. The movie revolves around Bueller’s determination to skip to school while avoiding capture at the hands of Dean Edward Rooney, one of many comic fools in the film. Much of the story revolves around cultural context involving…

    I found the podcasts to be very intriguing and brought attention to situations that I had no idea existed. If we look beyond the fact that twenty nine students were injured and three were killed the past year at Harper High, it sounds very similar to the high school I attended. While mine was much smaller in size and was primarily white and located in a rural setting, the students and school faculty seemed to have similar relationships. In the podcast, the narrator states that the faculty likes…

    Fortunately, the nearby private school allowed me to attend on a trial basis, with the plan being that I would complete Kindergarten again with my correct class the next year when I was five. However, I ended up exceed the expectations of the instructors and they insisted I move on the 1st grade as I understood the materials better than most in my class. As I continued though grammar school, middle school and even some of high school, I never really had to study much because retaining…

    Skipping school for an entire year? Sounds too good to be true, but it is true. This phenomenon is called a gap year which defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, is “a one-year hiatus from academic studies to allow for non-academic activities.” Many European countries are doing this method, where students take a year break after graduating high school but before college to give themselves time to do what they please without the anxiety and stress of academics. The Gap Year is a great…
