The story “In the Field” by Tim O’Brien, is about a platoon of eighteen soldiers in the Vietnam war who are searching a shit field looking for a dead solider by the name of Kiowa. Throughout the story we as readers can see that the author uses the thoughts and actions of the soldiers to show that the Vietnam war was an unnecessary war. In addition, Tim O’Brien uses their thoughts to also show how soldiers felt about fighting the Vietnam War.

My understanding of underserved rural environments is limited to what I have read and what I have observed while visiting the Pacific Northwest and the Appalachian region. However, my familiarity with more urbanized underserved regions is much keener. I have discovered a common theme in many of these underserved areas.
I think the argument that Cindi May is trying to convey within this article is extremely important for young adults to understand. Taking notes is a skill that students will carry with them for the rest of their lives. The article specifies that Pam Mueller had conducted an experiment with students who took notes by hand and those who typed them out using a laptop. The study showed that students who had used a laptop actually ended up taking more notes, however, it didn't help with their comprehension of the material. The students who wrote their notes out had a much better conceptual understanding of the material they were being tested on.
According to Jame Doubek, in the article “Attention, Students: Put Your Laptops Away”, writing notes by hand is much more effective than typing notes in class.He used an example of Mueller and Oppenheimer’s study that published in Psychological Science to demonstrate that writing notes by hand can be more potent than typing on the computer.First, Mueller and Oppenheimer suggest that with the development of technology, students are relying more on the laptop because laptops are small and and typing notes is much faster than writing by hand, so students love to type notes in class and always “try to transcribe all thing they heard”. However, the more words they copied verbatim, the worse
This field observation was an eye opening experience. I had the opportunity to observe an interrelated fifth grade class in an urban school setting near South Fulton County. I was excited to be assigned special education class because these classes have their own issues as it pertains to education. I was not shocked at all to see how alienated this class was from the rest of the school. The classrooms were overcrowded and were serving as storage rooms. Prior to observing I had high expectations for this school because of its history in the community in which it sits. The school proved to be the epitome of a failing urban public school. As expected the walls were crawling with motivational posters yet the administration and educators were mot following through. The class was 75% African American and the latter Hispanic. Ms.F seems to have clear understanding that the school systems are failing and she has her own plan to rectify the situation. Before the formal interview, I learned that she believes that solving the cultural difference issues will aid in the students success. Through her twenty six years of teaching she has realized that in order to really teach a student you first have to appear to be reachable. Ms.F says that she came to the conclusion that her students were suffering because their surroundings are not conducive to their learning. She informed me that many of the students reside in impoverished households or shelters and she explained that their cultural
Western State had peaked my interest when I first made the visit to the campus my Junior year of high school. Around the time I was considering which college would be best for me. When first entering the town of Gunnison I realized all of the potential outdoor activates that I could partaken. Being a Colorado Native outdoor actives have always been a big part of my life. During my visit I enjoyed hearing about what the campus had to offer, from small classes that would provide more one on one interaction from the professors. An added bonus western offers my intended major. I also loved how many of the students never want to leave campus. I also really enjoyed what western had to offer on campus whether that was clubs, sports, or outdoor trips
When I first heard of an opportunity to partake in an field experience, I couldn't help but get a tad excited. My first field experience was with elementary aged students, it was an eye opening experience that made me realize that perhaps I would be more suited for secondary age students. Therefore, this field experience I feel more excited about partaking in since it is with the age group that I will be working with. That being said, I am going to be at two different middle school's here in town Anthony and Eisenhower.
This paper has aimed to evaluate the course of events that when working in rotation can facilitate effective teaching and learning. It has highlighted the planning, teaching, evaluating and assessment cycle, which is ever revolving helping practitioners to plan, evaluate and assess their pedagogic practice. It has underlined the importance of planning and assessing in teaching practice. It has considered concrete strategies to use during this cycle and studied these events when critically analysing current assessment theory. Through theory and practical evidence it has attempted to show that levelling and grading has to be fair and accurate to enable each and every pupil to receive the education that they deserve. Throughout this paper it has
What do you think works in the world as far as beliefs go ? Do you believe in superstition? I do and this is my story of how it it all played out in Anderson field 1.
Field observation this week was kind of hard. After working with the kids its really hard to know that I will not be working with them again for a while. I really enjoyed getting to work with the kids and learning from Mrs. Morfit. I have been an assistant aid, an a P.E. Teacher and a parent ant the Crestone Charter School but it has been interesting to see the school from another side.
General Observations: My past field placements have been in much larger schools; therefore, I was excited to have the opportunity to experience a rural setting. St. Rose is a small public school with a unique location. St. Rose is attached to the St. Rose Catholic Church. When I arrived, students were attending religion classes while teachers met in the teacher’s lounge to grade papers, make copies, and prepare for the day. Once religion classes were over, the “school day” started. I immediately obvious the students were very well-behaved; for example, students held the door open for one another and the noise level was appropriate in the hallway and classroom. Coincidentally, I attended a private school K-7th grade; for that reason, the atmosphere and behaviors observed were familiar.
My first day of observations had finally arrived. Filled with excitement, I opened the doors to Pleasant Ridge Elementary School, and walked into the front office to sign in as a guest for the day. I made my way to the second grade wing to do my first observation for my field experience report. The second grade instructor greeted me as I entered her classroom, with a big bright smile I found made her classroom warm and inviting.
My practicum took place on September 7,2016 from nine thirty to ten thirty. The practicum took place at Impact Early College High School in Baytown. The class I observed was Ms. Nguyen’s class of juniors and seniors that contained twenty students, seven boys and thirteen girls. The class appeared to be alert and ready to learn. Since this was their second period class they already had enough time to shake off their fatigue. The subject was Pre-Calculous and the topic was operations of functions. Students entered the classroom in a calm manner and socialized until it was time to start class. The teacher instructed the students to take their seats and take five minutes to write their assignments into their academic calendar. The teacher went
