Once class begins, Professor X starts off by giving students a quiz that they answer with their i-clicker. The i-clicker is used by more than 1,300 universities in North Ame... ... middle of paper ... ...he homework assignments are usually ten questions long, and at most they have five different parts each. At times, if Professor X is going to cover more than one chapter section, he assigns homework for each chapter section that will be due before the following class. Considering the homework questions are not too long, it takes Andria from thirty to forty-five minutes to entirely complete her assignment. During my interview with Professor X, he mentioned that he provides students with recorded lecture, which are posted on Youtube, even though those lectures are provided less than five percent of his students actually watches the lectures.
Typical of freshmen classes in college, it was a gigantic lecture hall filled with a few hundred students. I would go to every class. I would write down everything the professor said verbatim. To study for tests, I would re-write all of my notes word for word. Pages of them.
1. On the Summer I 2015, I took PADM 6080 Organization Theory and Behavior with 3 credits. The class had 24 students, with 4 international students as participants. The professor mentioned some assignments and we had to read 5 books for some discussion in every class meeting. We had to present a book chapter in-front of the class then we discussed it.
With having 15 course credit hours and each class requires two hours of studying for every hour one is in class and working 40 hours a week, a student/employee is lucky to get seven hours of sleep. This kind of schedule requires heavy planning. Martin Kramer, editor-in-chief of New Directions for Higher Education, says, “the present generation of students can surely be labeled the
As the homeroom teacher, the teacher spends an additional thirty minutes with this first grade class. Students see the science teacher during breakfast and morning meeting. The class then was able to have more time to discuss and review homework expectations. This homeroom has three Latin American students, one of which is an English Language Learner, and twenty African American students. Students receive a weekly homework packet at the end of every Monday.
Picture this you are sitting in your three o’clock comp tutorial on a sunny Monday afternoon. There is about twenty-five people in the classroom about half of which are very intelligent students that always do their work and actively participate in class. But the other half only come because they must be there. For example, I am sitting in class and Dr. Lutz instructs us to take out our workbook so that we can go over the exercises that we were supposed to do the previous night. As we begin to go over the exercises, he starts to call of names from the attendance sheet.
The class that I observed my mentor, Dr. Badiee, teach contained about 150 enrolled students. Dr. Badiee provided a special lecture on microaggressions for Dr. Campbell’s race and racism class. The classroom was located in the physical sciences building in the main lecture auditorium. The auditorium room architecture is slanted so that the students in the back are elevated in comparison to the front row of students. There were three columns of seating right, middle, and left.
Each student gave a short two-minute speech to a classroom of 20-25 students. The speeches were videotaped and later played back and reviewed by the instructor. Directly after giving their speeches, the students were asked to fill out Spielberger's (Speilberger, Gorsuch, & Lushene, 1969) STAI (A-State) scale, which asks the student how he/she felt while giving the presentation. They also filled this out several weeks before the speech, on how they felt about public speaking in general. Then they were asked to fill out the scale after class.
In high school, classes are usually no larger than 25 students. In many classes, it could be even less than that. In college all classes are larger than 35 students, yet most are significantly larger. In general education lecture classes, such as Psychology and management, class sizes can get up to 400 students. Students go into their classes, find a seat in the huge lecture hall, and fade into another face among the silent crowd.
Data Collection Procedures There were several data collections that were used that included term assessment projects, reflection journals, portfolios, and weekly evaluations. During the semester random interviews with the pre-service teacher by the university professors took place along with observations. This collection process was taken over the course of a semester. The pre-service teachers put together lessons that were ... ... middle of paper ... ...n the classroom and having the hands-on experience. I remember looking at the standards, talking to my in-service teacher, and then taking that information and trying to plan a lesson.
