Week 1d1 the importance of neuroscience in education

[ad_1]

In order to effectively differentiate, a teacher must be familiar with how the brain prefers to receive and process information and realize that each student’s brain is uniquely organized. Research suggests that a teacher’s knowledge of brain function is instrumental in planning differentiated instruction.  

After reading Chapter 1 of our text, please: 

  • Examine the seven basic principles of how we learn starting on page 13 of our text.
  • Select three of these principles and describe how you might specifically incorporate them into your classroom instruction.
  • Examine how these approaches will support student learning needs based on brain research.

Be sure to use the text to support your response.

4. Due Date: Feb 16, 2017 Handling Difficult Situation

This is a CLC. For this assignment, focus on the group of students in your program of study.

Consider the following:

·      What makes some students more of a discipline issue, when others are “following the plan”? What can the teacher do to resolve this issue?

·      What are some unexpected situations that can cause disruptions in the classroom? For example: teacher has car accident or a school evacuation?

·      What are your plans to get through these types of situations?

·      When do you have to disclose behavior reported by students: abuse, drug use, pregnant, hurting others, hurting self?

·      What are the legal and ethical implications for classroom management related to the rights and responsibilities of students, parents, and teachers?

·      What other difficult situations might you experience? How can you plan for the unexpected?

Write a 250-500 word essay that discusses how you would handle difficult situations in your future classrooms. Reference the questions for consideration. Include suggestions, opinions, and implications.

Use 3-5 scholarly resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines

Due Date: Feb 16, 2017 Fraction Lesson Plans

 

Details:

Select a CCRS related to Number and Operations in Fractions. Using the “Class Profile,” create three lesson plans with activities that:

1   Use models in fraction tasks, including area, length, and set/quantity models;

2   Emphasize academic language, including partitioning, sharing tasks, and iterating; and

3   Explore equivalent fractions

Visit the Teaching Channel website and review three videos of teachers teaching fractions. Write a 250-500 word review of what you observed and support your review with references to the assigned readings. 

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines

Videos

·      View “Common Core State Standards for Math,” located on the Teaching Channel website.

This assignment uses a rubric. Class profile is the other attachment I had given you before.

 

Criteria                                                    Excellent 100%

Fraction Content

Lesson plans include engaging instructional activities that stimulate critical thinking and problem solving, use models in fraction tasks, emphasize academic language, and explore equivalent fractions.

Review

Response skillfully and convincingly critiques the videos of teachers teaching fractions. It includes several distinctive supporting details and/or examples.

PLANNING: Instructional Script and Materials

Lesson plan demonstrates well-developed and skillful use of effective, student-centered verbal, nonverbal and electronic media communication tools and techniques to create opportunities for active inquiry, collaboration and supportive interaction.

PLANNING: Meeting the Varied Learning Needs of Students

Lesson plan has creative, well-developed differentiated instructional activities and supports clearly designed to meet the needs of specific individuals or groups with similar needs, consistent with the Class Profile.

PLANNING: Meeting the Language Needs of Students

Lesson plan clearly and comprehensively incorporates content-based vocabulary, targeted instructional support for the use of vocabulary, and additional language demands associated with the language function consistent with the Class Profile.

PLANNING: Assessments to Monitor Student Learning

Planned assessments creatively allow for multiple forms of evidence in order to monitor the understanding and skill development of students in the content area throughout and at the end of the lesson. They are well aligned with the stated learning targets and standards and include well-crafted modifications for the individual needs of students, based on the Class Profile.

Rationale

Rationale clearly describes carefully planned, plausible reasoning for choices of instructional materials and strategies in light of learning goals and student outcomes.

Mechanics

The lesson plan is free of mechanical and conventional errors. Word choice reflects well-developed use of practice and topic-related language.

Multiple intelligence learning styles | Education homework help

[ad_1]

Use the matrix worksheet (attached) to describe 3 sets of (DIFFERENT REAL CLASS ACTIVITIES) that you might use to teach and/or assess the children 6-12 years old about any mental or emotional health topics. 

Come up with activities for each category from the sheet attached of multiple intelligence, so for each “learning style” (like some children learn better by doing stuff like acting a situation out) you would need to fill out the blank chart and write 3 activities for each style. Also, there is a powerpoint attached talking about the styles of learning that might be helpful.

 

NOTES: “Please read carefully” 

– Pretend yourself as a teacher for 6-12 years old students and come up with class activities that are appropriate for their age. 

– Make sure it will be 3 different activities for each learning style.

– Due Wednesday, Nov 30 at 12:00 PM 

Thank you.
