Listening and Responding. It is important to listen and the pupil an opportunity to speak, so they can express their own thoughts and feelings. You should respond appropriately and you may need to repeat back to make sure of your understanding. This also makes the pupil aware that you are listening and are interested. For example in my setting I had a pupil tell me that his Dad hurt his thumb with a hammer when he was putting a picture up. I repeated the sentence back to him but also continued the conversation by asking questions like, ‘Did his Dad have a sore thumb’, and ‘Did he need a plaster’. This showed that I was interested and I was also listening. The pupil responded well and was very excited to be telling me about it.
My first observation is that the subject fills up their water bottle during the class change. Another one of my observations is that my classmate faces forward during the fifty- two minutes sixth period lasts. The person isn’t late to class. Additionally, the student went to the bathroom at the end of class. This shows the subject is determined not to waste class time.
Most people go about their business, especially in a classroom. Some students have their faces buried in paperwork, some have their headphones on, some dozing off, or chatting with a friend. Most times it’s just a quiet room with blank stares waiting for the teacher to arrive. Usually when people’s eyes meet, especially
We simply took notes as the teacher talked monotone the entire time. No one was paying attention to him which meant I couldn't. I finally gave up and put my head down on the desk blaring my music through my headphones. Everybody just ignored me in that class—I was public enemy number one now that Everleigh didn't like me—so it wasn't like anyone but Zarra noticed.
Building in-class continuity will help prepare young adults for the work world and requiring class attendance will help develop students for a thriving career. Fortunately, in grade school you are required to go to school. If you don’t there will be some form of consequences. However, once students enter college they now have the choice of attending class, thus, teaching inconsistency. Doing so holds back other students in the class
On October 27, I, along with Jenna Mrofchak and Andy Norton, shadowed multiple teachers at the Chagrin Falls Middle School. During the day, I shadowed Mrs. Mrofchak, a life science teacher, Mrs. Bauer, a world history teacher, Mrs. Dennison, a health teacher, and Mr. Richmond, a english teacher. Throughout Mrs. Mrofchak’s first period class, I was able to interact with the eighth grade students by answering any questions about the high school or my freshmen year. Afterwards, the class began to take notes and continue in a day to day class schedule. As a result, I was able to watch the class's reaction to the different explanations the teacher gave. Additionally, I was able to gain knowledge about how to control a classroom
Find their inner voices and let it shine through. I’m a perfect example of keeping silent , every time I have to get up in front of a classroom and speak my throat closes in because I feel like no one wants to hear what I have to say because I don’t really know what I’m talking about, or I don’t fully understand the text that I have just read and everyone is secretly calling me stupid, so therefore, I prefer to sit quietly rather make a fool of myself.
their turn, playing with others and so for the, which can create a distance between them and their peers,” says Catterick (p. 114). By teaching students social cues in the classroom, you are better equipping them to make friends and not be isolated from their classmates because they are different or don’t fit in.
This ability to keep quiet and pay attention regardless of the chaos that was taking place in the classroom allows me to have a very long attention span, which is what I consider as one of my greatest strengths as a student. I can take in a lot of dense information or have prolonged discussions without issue.
It is practical knowledge that children and young adults may often at times have trouble staying on task with the numerous sensations and events they experience when in the real world, or in this case, their school. At times easily
Throughout many years of schooling, in each class anyone has taken there are always the common stereotypes of students; the brainiac, the class clown, etc, but one that often most don 't pay attention to is the student who sits in the corner of the classroom and twiddles their thumbs. They don 't do much, maybe turn in a couple of assignments, raise their hand to go to the restroom but other than that, they’re simply passing by. They put up a front, act as if they don’t care and that’s usually because they have learned to be this way. These students replace their space for intellectual thoughts with sarcasm and boredom, completely shutting down their minds. Overtime they adapt a defense mechanism, a type of wall of carelessness to keep the insults from fellow classmates and teachers.
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
Education is the central element in the life of every human being that belongs to a society, since it is through this process that people can live in harmony with their fellow human beings. However, sometimes due to a lack of professional training and information, some students are marginalized by categorizing them as restless or rebellious. Generally, these students confront with behavioral disorders. These children show some particular characteristics that, on many occasions, put their stability into the classroom, that of their classmates and even that of the teacher. The ignorance or lack of
