When it comes to academic writing, there are many genres. There are many different styles, and each academic writing has a unique meaning to it. Thinking about academic writing it is easy to think it has only one meaning, yet, in reality there is a vast amount of variations. One
Word count 779 Second Patch. Team Working By using the artwork of the fantastic four (John Haward 2001) Appendix 1, I will explore how a team is different from a group. For this I will describe an award given to me as part of a team while working in a nurse led minor injury unit (MIU). By comparing the differences I shall highlight what makes a team effective rather than a collection of people.
What is a writing process? The Capella University writing process includes four main parts. First, there is a prewriting, which allows the student to generate ideas of what the content of the assignment will be (Capella University, 2017). This step creates the audience and the purpose of the assignment. The next step is drafting the assignment, which allows the student to document the evidence that supports the main ideas (Capella University, 2017). This step is important because it helps determine if the evidence presented strongly supports the topic. The next step of the writing process is revising, which allows the student to make changes that will strengthen the content of the assignment (Capella University, 2017). Revising is another important step that
As a student at Portland Community College, I have found PCC to be a diverse and inclusive place for educators and students alike. This is achieved by fostering an accepting environment by the PCC staff who make this possible. If you see an opening position for a writing tutor, someone
It was a Monday morning and students were noisy as they entered the classroom. They slowly retrieved their notebooks from the drawer in the front of the class. This left me with the following idea which I will use in my own classroom of each student using an interactive notebook which is stored in the classroom. They can never “forget” their notebook, because it is kept in class. Also, the students past stories, directions, examples and text from other sources in the notebook and then respond to these in their notebook. The notebook is broken down into different sections such as “literature”, “vocabulary” and “test practice”. This
The activity of shared reading includes the students participation in the reading process, unlike modeling where the students just observe the teacher reading. Shared reading is used because it gets the students involved in the reading even if the activity is difficult for them, helps students experience success which encourages future reading, and provides experience for the students before they work independently.
When you are writing collaboratively, how does one determine whether an argument represents one's own position? Sticking to your position while writing collaboratively can be tricky, often times it can be downright impossible. To ensure that one maintains its own position it is important to know well and to constantly stick to your position. You can pretty well guarantee that your portion of the paper is a reflection of yourself and your views by sticking by them and being sure to give support for those ideas. On the other hand what is it that causes or allows a team member to support an argument that he or she does not find credible? Does this lack of individual support weaken the final paper? Why or why not? You may not find the issue a
The article entitled, “Writing Partnerships”, is incredibly insightful when it comes to informing teachers about a revolutionary idea revolved around writing workshop. This idea proposes that teachers assign each student a writing partner and they work together to encourage each other in the writing process. By having students participate in such a way, allows the teacher to walk around and monitor the writing process without being bombarded with thousands of questions that students have about their individual writing pieces; that’s what the writing partner is for. The article talks about the different ways that this can be conducted, such as teachers could pair students together of opposite gender, teachers could pair students up based upon

When students learn how to write it helps them to communicate better. Writing is a process that helps delivers what one has to say. By having students practice writing it can help to become better writers. According to the article Empowering ELL Students to Improve Writing Skills Through Inquiry-Based Learning, it was mentioned that when it comes to vocabulary that the understanding such as reading knowledge, grammatical understanding, phonetic information, happen to be important in the increase of having great reading comprehension (Yanhui, 2016, P.75). By having English language students write about their favorite part of the book it will show to see what they understood from the text and what they still need assistance in. This activity also involves cooperative learning for the reason that the students will be listening to each other as well as they will be giving and receiving feedback from one another. It was also mention in the article that students who are English language learners are able to improve their development by through being involved in classroom participation and engagement (Yanhui, 2016, P.75). From this activity the students are able to participate due to the fact they are informing the class about their favorite part of the book. Also the other students will be engaged because they will be able to relate to the students Reponses of the question. It will also keep students interesting due to the fact that the students are writing about something that is interesting to them. And by the students retelling what happened in the book to it will give them a better chance in remembering and being able to comprehend
KIDBLOG I chose to review KidBlog which can be accessed by going to kidblog.org. This tool is a good tool to use in a classroom because of its compatibility with all devices. The purpose of KidBlog is to allow students to publish their writing online in a safe way that is managed by the teacher and also so students can practice being a digital citizen and a global collaborator. KidBlog allows the teacher to review students’ writing before it can be published. This feature ensures that all students are practicing and following the ISTE Standard of being a digital citizen. KidBlog also motivates students to be thoughtful when writing for a larger audience and allows them to connect with their peers inside and outside of their classroom.
Making Mistakes is part of our lives. Imagine you are studying for a tests or writing Journal Entries for your English teacher. You are all hyped about and make plan to actually do your work. Also you were thinking that you will be getting an A in this class for sure because it sounded easy when the teacher was talking about. He even made it more easier for you by giving you one day to read and one day to do your Journal Entry.Sometimes he would even more generous and let you have an extra time in class for you to get started. In class, you have your friends surrounding you and there are major distractions to your work. So instead of doing your work you socialize throughout the class. When you come home you realize that your internet was cut off when you were at school and now it was time for wordiness to kick in because you remembered that you have Journal Entry due at 7:30.
When families and school do great collaboration it is a greater chance for student success. According to Mizerek and Christenson (2005), the benefits of home-school collaboration are well supported in both academic and social-emotional areas. Forming partnerships with families is associated with increased student achievement, improved attitude toward school, higher attendance rates, and lower dropout rates. The authors state that children learn better when family, teachers and community are involve in their life, working together to encourage and support them. Mizerek and Christenson describes how beneficial are these collaborations between school and families in the children development and resolving conflict or issues in school and home.
Let’s start with that first, I loved to write. I can tell you I struggle with writing without the good ol’ autocorrect on my phone or laptop. When I was younger it was a great escape for me. I can remember in the fourth grade our teacher would have us write in a journal everyday for the last thirteen minute, and that's where I would pour my life and soul into. She is the prime reasoning for this love of mine. I probably told her too much, because I had a lot to say and this is where I was able to be heard. I want for my students to have that same outlet in my classroom. Something similar that I can respond to them with without judgment towards them, but also seeing if
