Yesterday was Wednesday, January 25, 2017. When we strolled into class after a relaxing lunch period, we picked up several papers from the front bookshelf. To commence class we started off with a short quiz on the syllabus. This served as our warm up for the day. Following the quiz Chris read his through daily log, which brought back memories of the first day in our new classes. I volunteered to write the next daily log.
Weekly Reflective Journal #7 My week was long and a bumpy rollercoaster. I was sick towards the first half of the week which made my days drag. However, I remained energetic for my class because this week was Read Across America week. The school had a Dr. Seuss book theme each day. I dressed up and the kids dressed up. It was so sweet and we delved into Dr. Seuss. We discussed his stories messages, the rhymes, real words vs. made-up words, and connections to our lives. The only downside was that a handful of our students were sick this week. On Wednesday, our class started out at fourteen and by 12:45 we had eight students left. It made classroom management easier, but I missed the smiling faces of the absent students.
Week Two Journal Entry Pattern recognition helps to develop the skills necessary to develop a differential diagnosis. When seeing patients in the clinical setting, practitioners begin to recognize associated symptoms, health history details, and assessment findings that are related to specific system alterations. By acknowledging these repetitive patterned-like affiliations from clinical scenarios, we as learners can begin to transform our foundational knowledge to critical thinking, diagnostic reasoning, and differential development. According to work by Flott and Linden (2015), a positive learning environment can be supported by understanding "attributes" that support learning (p. 501). Hence, pattern recognition is an example of an attribute that will contribute to learning in the clinical setting for nurse practitioner students. Consequently, being able to mentally sort a group of symptoms, findings, and diagnostics that are related to a particular problem can help build an intellectual database of reference. As a result, these steps help students develop a diagnosis, differential, and plan of care. A reflection of pattern recognition, problem-based learning, and clinical experiences will be examined further to help substantiate the contributions to the learning experience.
Sitting at a crowded table surrounded by my friends roaring with laughter, I gazed out at the ocean. The glaring sun burned on my skin, and I was exhausted from spending the day at the boardwalk of the Jersey Shore. My stomach was growling, and all I could think of was how badly I wanted food. All of a sudden, the aroma of melting mozzarella and fresh tomatoes hit me like a train. I could hardly wait. The waitress soon came over and left the pizza on our table. I wanted to begin eating at that second, but first I had to take a picture of this beautiful creation.
• Last class we broke into intragroups and reported out. What are your reactions to last class? In what ways did we practice dialogue during the last half of our last session? What did you notice about your classmates? Whose voices did we hear? Whose voices were missing?
Humans differ from each other. Some people like to change themselves in a better way, and other accept how bad they are. Your concern may be correct, but it doesn't apply to all kinds of people especially for the one that read this book. Writing journal help people to be
will go in depth about different philosophies and ideas used in the classroom, and also focus on the motivation and classroom management within the classroom. In the end, I will conclude with my opinion on the positives and negatives from the class, and how I would run my class differently from the educator I observed.
I can say that I really like the structure of the class, and it was very interesting. Meaning that I didn’t see anything that I don’t like from the class exercises, readings, discussions and assignments.
Themes In every session we shared our experiences, we created trust between us. For example, I know one of the members of the group since a couple semesters before. I had not talked much with her about anything personal just about school-related
Journal II Holding onto certain experience may be a way to activate or evoke emotions. However it is not simply emotional memory that is triggered but also a connection with someone who is represented by it. Many times certain situations can trigger a memory of someone from the past. When I was about fifteen years of age, I fell in love with a guy in school which was my first relationship. We dated for about five years we were very attached to each other. It always feels warm and secure whenever we hold hands. His smooth and gentle touch is something I certainly did not imagine life without. I always look forward to his way of comfort in any situation. I was touched profoundly by the outpouring of love he had shown to me. The experience I
Major concepts from reading regarding group process As part of the group process, it is important to consider the comfortability of group members among the group. For example, aside from the check-in, this was the first time that the whole class has been a part of the group process. Though I find that the class is quiet in general, having it be the first time the class was one large group may have contributed to the low response rate to the questions being asked. According to the Tuckman model (Zastrow, 2015), the group would still be in the forming stage. Overall, it feels as though the group members are still getting comfortable with each other because of their hesitation to talk.
This week has been a very personal week for me. My youngest son graduated from high school and the week was full of activities: including his high school baseball banquet. His high school baseball career ended (as mentioned in all the papers) as a “Fairy Tale Ending” by winning the
When it came to working together as a group I think we got along well with each other. I also felt comfortable providing ideas and helping out my group members even though I’m usually quite in groups. Our attendance for group sessions I thought was excellent as previously in other groups I have experienced members not showing up. When it came to presenting our oral presentations I felt very
This is my first semester at City Tech. When I signed up for the group dynamics class I expected to have some difficulties. Prior to this class I worked on various group projects and for the most part it was a wreck. The information given was unclear, members were not focused and/ or the professor was too busy to help. As a result, I ended up doing all the work and not feeling confident in my projects.
Unifying Diversity in Education Classroom dynamics is a notorious topic in education.The concept was created to investigate the classroom community.
