Doodling sort of anchors me to pen, paper, and the lecture. I also enjoy and benefit from taking part in class discussions and speaking in front of the class. I find that when I speak in front of the class, or ask questions, I retain that information better. There are times in class where I can fall behind, or get a bit confused, and at this time I refer to the book to help get me back on course with the rest of the class. Assignments can also get me a bit confused.
Many teachers’ lecture notes contain a great deal of information. They do this for a reason and it is to coerce the student into reading the text and figuring out what is important. This helps the student understand the material better without spoon-feeding the student the key points of the information. Student-to-student studying is a significant technique to learning. When one student has his information down pat, they can teach other students.
Introduction and Rationale Talk moves are strategies that are used to promote, guide, and enhance discussion between a teacher and students and amongst the students themselves and also to hold students more accountable for their own learning and participation in the classroom. The talk move strategy that I choose to analyze from my own teaching was revoicing. Revoicing is where the teacher restates a question or statement that a student asks or says. The main purpose for revoicing what a student says is twofold. First, it allows all students to hear the question if they could not hear what was initially said.
For example, in my political science class, instead of listening in order to conduct a response to someone who I can not completely agree with, I try to imagine myself as them. This habit also connect well with thinking flexibly because it requires listening to another person 's perspective and gaining new knowledge because you are listening thoroughly. I have learned a variety of things in my life because I chose to listen to someone else 's ideas. Metacognition definitely helps me daily as well. For me in school, I try to evaluate my study habits, communication skills with my professors and peers then use it to better myself.
My Study Habits My current study habits are taking good notes in class, organizing my class material, Maintenance Rehearsal, studying with friends and Mass Practice. Taking good notes help because on the test the teacher not only going to ask what was on PowerPoint also what he said verbally during the lecture. Organizing the class material helps because I can recall the stuff better when it’s organized. I use maintenance rehearsal to memorize or learn information. I would keep repeating information to myself until I totally get it into my mind and it helps me sometimes not all the time.
For example, if one recommends taking notes to intake knowledge, they are most likely reliable and can remember what they are taught with out hesitation. When taking notes, the student first hears the information being said then translates it into their own thoughts and copies it down. When the information is tested at a later date, the student can recall their own writing and interpretation of the lesson. Another way for the student to use information they know is to create a presentation. If a student likes doing presentations for their fellow classma...
Next, think about the different kinds of listening people engage in; what roles do listeners play from day to day? 4. Finally, come together as a class and compile a master list of your group’s findings. The “What I heard” Exercise (Class 2) Because a big part of engaged listening involves giving feedback to a speaker, sometimes we have to be able to both listen and think simultaneously. While focusing too much on our own thoughts can get in the way of effective listening, making simple connections to explore later can be very useful.
I could assess student understanding informally and in qualitative ways (IE: I noticed that Gabby had a strong answer to a key question), which also helps me to build and foster a strong rapport with my students. I also engaged in small group discussion and asked a few probing questions to groups who needed further gui... ... middle of paper ... ...rking on as a class, and will serve as a starting point in the learning process for tomorrow. Addressing learning objectives at the beginning of the lesson, referencing learning targets that they have crafted/partially authored, putting into context what they want to learn, further elaborating how what they want to learn relates to the unit learning targets, and reusing the learning target language throughout the lessons helps students to understand how/why the learning targets apply to key concepts and learning activities throughout the lesson. While students will continue to master these learning targets throughout the lessons, they were able to apply their understanding to each learning target when they: LT1: Discussion, Abstract vs. Concrete exercise, Google Form LT2: Word Association, Joyful vs.
Learning to me use to mean sitting down in a desk in a classroom, listening to a lecture, taking notes,and being able to regurgitate what was needed for a test. After taking this class I have learned that learning is much more, it involves being able to decode the text into a simpler format. While being able to think critically, about what is being said in the text. While bringing that information to my test and assignments I 'm sure that I will be more successful as I continue my education to obtaining my degree. While explaining learning to someone else I would explain it as stop over thinking about what your studying, take a few moments to look over the textbook, try and make it relate to something that you enjoy.
What I can do for the remainder of the course to make this a better learning experience is to continue to be involved and learn from my other classmate and instructor. The feedback is beneficial as it helps me understand others point of view. 9. Additional comments based upon my self-evaluation. As I was undecided about what age level I wanted to focus on, the information from this course has allow me to focus on Secondary Education with a content in Mathematics.
