Because my preschool teachers made learning fun, I looked forward to learning more about the English language at a very young age. My parents further reinforced what I learned in preschool by continuing to read to me at home.
One thing that I do find very important is practical educational experiences. As an elementary teacher, I will not get to see this put to much use, but I hope that my students will have future opportunities to complete internships, work-studies, and many other opportunities along those lines. I am also a very optimistic person when it comes to children and their abilities to learn. I firmly believe that every child can learn just as much as another, they just need to go at their own pace and level. Today, too many teachers pass off children that learn slower as problems in their classroom.
Parents should not stop reading or helping their children when they do start going to school. They still like to be read to, and it can help to increase their vocabulary as well. Parents can also help their children with their reading sk... ... middle of paper ... ...rom my experience, not experiments of other children and documented research. As a parent today, I have done the total opposite of my parents, with the help of my husband and with teachers in the Twinsburg school system. All in all, the parents of today need to be prepared, motivated, and of course; confident to help their children succeed.
English wasn’t an easy subject for me, I always had trouble with the language, but I had to try to teach myself some basic roles that where taught to students in the first grade. This didn’t bother me that much but rather it help me to see where my weakness is and try to work on it. I started to go to the library every day after school and try to read kids’ books to help myself out. And eventually I caught up with my class mates in English class, I was at the same level as my classmates. This was one of my grandest accomplishments in life, to learn a new language.
I liked Psychology but what I really wanted to do was work with children more closely. I had spent my junior and senior years involved in internships at Head Start and at a High School in a Program for teenaged mothers. I loved my work there. At Head Start I was a Teacher Aid for the pre-school, teaching the children to read, numbers etc. And at the High School I counseled the teenaged mothers, took care of their kids while they went to school and after the school day I tutored them with their homework.
(Pg47) Having my parents and family being the biggest influences on literacy and stressing the importance of being literate. Around the age of five or six as I began school teachers began to shape and mold my style of reading and writing. My teachers were a great contribution to my foundation of reading and writing skills, around the age of five or six as I began school they help began to shape and mold my style of reading and writing. As I attended school I was given a lot of assignments in writing the alphabet and reading to enhance learning and my ability in literacy began to develop even further. My teachers were a great help although my family contributed to my reading skills as well.
As a student in elementary school, I never realized how important it was for my parents to have been involved in my education. They have always been there for me and helped me with any homework that I had and I really believe now that this benefited me as a student and allowed me to be the best I could be during my educational career. Being that I struggled often as a student and needed extra help, having my parents guiding me and being so involved in my education, really affected me and the type of student I was. When I was a child and in elementary school, I was classified with a learning disability and received an IEP. My learning disability really affected me as a student and I had trouble when it came to certain subjects such as reading
This phrase means to me that I have to assume responsibility for my own educational journey. First of all, I feel the need to learn and I enjoy the procedure. As a consequence, I take action and pursue any educational opportunity that arises, and when there is no apparent opportunity on the horizon, I try to create one. Since the need to learn is in my DNA, as a critically thinking adult I owe it to myself to do it the right way and to take as much as possible from every occasion. To do this, I employ different strategies I have learned through the years, and when none of those work properly or efficiently enough I try to find new ones or tailor an old one to address my new needs.
The article goes on to discuss each point in detail and how important the parents are in their children’s school lives. One point that I had never heard before was the fact that a teacher must trust their students enough to have a better relationship. This development of a trusting relationship by the teacher, the... ... middle of paper ... ...some easier books (English and Spanish) and then some type of review questions or graphic organizers to review the story that was read. I think that with the bucket already planned out, the parents can come in and take the bucket and go into the hall and work. That will relieve me of having to explain to the parent each time what they need to do.
I have chosen to take this elective subject, as there were many cases in my personal life where I failed to negotiate and explain myself properly. After participating in the simulations and listening to the lecture, then I can see where I failed and what I have done wrong before. The theoretical part of the subject was highly beneficial as I could see what should have been done differently; the simulations were also extremely useful because they gave me an opportunity to apply myself and the newly gained knowledge. I can surely say that these approach of learning and then practicing is highly effective, especially when it comes to learning new techniques in my real life negotiations. 1 WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT MYSELF AS A NEGOTIATOR?
