Teaching Reflection - Period 4

In an open response, reflect on your experiences teaching. Your reflection should touch upon the following questions.

What did you learn about teaching?
What did you learn about methods that impacted you?
What would you have done differently?
What worked and what didn't?
Do you feel you have a better understanding of your particular grammatical unit? Why or Why not?
How was being a student for your fellow classmates?


While I encourage you to be specific, I am careful to remind you this is public. I do not want - "It would've worked great if only George did his job!!!!", rather "We should have been more clear as a group in our roles". The purpose of this writing piece is not about the group, but rather your own sense of learning and teaching.

You will be scored with an open response rubric.
4 - Clear topic development, evidence (examples from your experience), and analysis (So what or so what now?)
3 - Addresses most of the questions, provides some examples, begins to analyze what now
2 - Reflects basically on his or her experience, provides a few examples, lacks analysis
1 - Minimal effort in addressing or supporting topic, little or no analysis


THIS IS DUE WEDNESDAY AT MIDNIGHT

I realized that being a teacher isn’t so easy. It was an interesting experience for me to be up there and teach the class about possessives. There’s a lot of work that is needed to be teaching a class. You always have to be prepared and remember everything that’s important. While I was teaching the class about singular and plural possessives, I kept getting nervous and trying to remember what needs to be said so the class could understand. It would have been best if there were some notes to keep me intact with where I am. For example, when I was trying to think of a word that ended in –s, -x, or -z, I felt that I was all over the place while I was trying to get them to understand. I think I could have paced myself down a little bit so I won’t be confused later on. If I was to do it again, I would definitely write down notes and spend a little more time organizing what I’m going to say. Other than that, I think our group did a good job; we just needed more time to realize what is needed to be said.

Being a student while my classmates teach was really interesting. Their teaching methods are different and somewhat similar to what a teacher would do. I felt like they were the teacher. For example, the group that did commas, they had a PowerPoint of each thing they’re teaching. At each slide, they would do a short explanation and examples; also stop for the class to copy down the notes. Having our classmates teach us grammar made it hard and easy to understand the functions. There were times when someone taught something I just went “what?” but there were other times when they made it easier for me to understand. Maybe having a classmate teach us grammar is easier because they’re basically the same age and they know how to say things to make it easier. There are times when a teacher explains something; it could still be confusing because they have richer vocabulary. Teaching the class and learning from our classmates was interesting for me and fun as well.

First things first I have so much more respect for teachers. I learn that it is very difficult to teach. It is difficult because you may get the topic that you are teaching and you may get it in a different way, or have little tricks to remember, but others may not get your way or not understand what you are talking about. Like I said different people have different ways to remembering things and I learned that I think differently. This has showed me that everyone id different and you can not frustrated when teaching because you might not be explaining it correctly. If I were to do this project over I would change a lot things. I would have added a game into our presentation because form me the groups that had a game really got me interested in the subject. The group was a little unorganized as a whole I would be much more organized and get things done sooner, also I would have planned better. I don’t really feel like I no my lesson more than anyone else because for my lesson there was little tricks it was just mixed doubles but I think that maybe in the back of my mind I will remember most of the words. Being a fellow student to my peers was different. Some I am more friendly to than others so it hard to take your friends seriously or as your teacher. Also some people don’t talk or when they do talk they talk very low and you cant hear them so its difficult to learn. I most diffidently do not think that the whole period 4 will be teachers in the future, so lets leave the teaching to Mr.Walsh from now on.

The opportunity that I was given to teach a class for a period of time was very enlightening. I now have I better understand of how teachers feel everyday. I also realize that teaching is not an easy task. From the experience, I now know better not to judge a teacher base on how they teach because I know it is difficult to please each and every student individually. It was very nerve racking to be in the front and have twenty pairs of eyes focusing on only me when I’m trying my best not to mess up. Furthermore, it is one thing to teach and another to have the students understand what is being taught. Different students learn from different methods. Some students, including myself, learn from hands-on activity such as games. Other students might just learn from listening very closely. There are also little tricks to help a student remember a certain thing. I personally had a hard time with this assignment since I have difficulty projecting my voice and I am not a native speaker so some people might find it is hard to understand me. I could have improved on that by practicing at home before the actual day of teaching. What I find is that if I just talk and write on the board, it tends to be very boring and the students might drift off into dream land. In order to prevent that from happening, our group planned a little game to keep the student involved in the lesson so they can learn effectively. Because I was force to read and understand the grammar unit, I now have a better understanding of verbs agreement. I had difficulties with verbs agreeing before and now I have a better understanding. Also, I didn’t know that when one uses “wish” they have to use “were”, but now I do. If I did not, I would not be able to answer the students’ questions if there are any, and that does not look too good. Now, switching role, being a student for my fellow classmate was not that difficult. I felt that they did a great job teaching because I felt like a student, not a classmate. Some groups planned games to help the class learn which I thought was very effective. They also asked us to write notes and answer questions. However, sometimes they talk too fast and I was not able to understand them or their explanations just made me more confused. After having to go through teaching the class for fifteen minutes, I now know the difficulties that teachers have to go through. It is very time consuming and difficult to plan a lesson that will meet every students’ needs. Most importantly, from now on, I will not judge a teacher too quickly for being a good or bad teacher because I know what they have to go through each day.

Well, I definatly relized how tedious being a teacher is for a day. I think its more annoying then it was fun. I relized how difficult being a teacher is and how you have to be prepared both mentally and phyiscally in order to do the job, esspecially if your not good at it. The harest thing about this assigment was probally just talking to the class and trying to help them understand the part of speech we were doing. Its more of a knowlegde thing that you have to know exaclty what your talking about because it makes teaching so much easier when your trying to help kids who dont quite get what your saying. I wasnt really good at refraising what i was trying to say and putting it in other words so that everyone would understnad it more. As for everyhting else about the project, i liked being a student in the class and watching how other kids taught it to me and made it fun by pplaying games. I feel as if its easier to learn with games then it is with lectures and books. Another thing that i found interesting was how all the groups taught the class about there part of speech differently. It was interesnting seeing how the next group was going to differ there presentation and so on. Overall i had fun with this project and come to relize that being a teacher isnt as easy as just standing up and giving examples and answers out of a book.

Being a teacher definatly was not the easiest thing in the world. It is actually a lot harder than most people think. While it is important that everyone learns and understands the material, it is also important that everyone is enjoying what they are learning. When I was teaching I noticed that many people were bored and looked like they wanted to be doing anything else at that point. Being a student myself, it is usually true that when we need to copy down notes or listen to the teacher(s) talk that it is the most boring thing possible. There was also a lot of information that we as a group could have added to the lesson, but were restricted on time. If there was a little bit more fun added to the lesson such as creative activities, then it may have been more interesting that it originally was. Telling the class that they may win candy motivated them into atleast trying in the game. Motivation seems to help people learn faster, or have have a better wanting to learn. I feel that I have a better udnerstanding than I did before I did the project because now I know when to use who and whom in a sentence. Activities help the learning process go by faster because having a good time is as important as writing down the information. When I was copying down all the notes I had a blank stare on. Lights were on and I was writing but I had no clue what I was writing. Groups that added humor were easier to pay attention to than groups that just barraged us with information. Teaching and learning was an interesting experience that I may want to try again someday.

When I was teaching possessives, I realized that teaching is a challenging job. It was fun and interesting at times during my group's short lesson but it was still challenging. A challenging part to being a teacher is having to review and understand the material yourself and then summarize it so the class understands it. Most of the time, I read the confusing parts over and over again until I understood it but when I was faced with questions from the class, I found it hard to explain to them why the rule was so. I expected them to just know and learn the material and not ask questions. I think that was probably the most challenging part of teaching for me. I didn’t expect questions and when I was faced with them, I had to answer right on the spot. Being a teacher, I learned that you can never be too prepared. If I were to teach another lesson, I’d probably think of better ways of explaining the subject or maybe more than one way of approaching the subject or the confusing parts. For this project, I also enjoyed being the student because I got to learn about other parts of speeches and I was also able to see how others approached teaching. I learned that there are more than one way of going about teaching a topic. Moreover, I learned a great deal with games and activities other than just reading a textbook. I feel that I absorb more material and knowledge when I’m having fun because it doesn’t feel like work and I’d actually want to learn. Overall, this project was fun and it taught me to not give my teachers a hard time because teaching isn’t an easy job to do.

Teaching is no easy task. It is far harder than I thought it would be, you have to be able to present your information to others in a way that it is somewhat fun (that will at least keep them from falling asleep), while still getting your point across and allowing them to grasp and use it efficiently. Found that the visual method (the PowerPoint) was very effective for me as it passed the information on. I would have incorporated more teaching methods (so that everyone had the point of the lesson) along with some games to keep people awake and interested. The pretest that we gave out at first seemed to fail as some of the questions on it, I did not understand, although the way the information was presented and the easy follow up homework assignment worked (as no one wants to do extra long and unnecessary homework). I definitely have gained a better understanding of commas and of semi-colons through this as before this I did not know what or how to use a semi-colon in a sentence before that well. Other people’s teaching methods were “ok”, some worked and some didn’t (the game of musical chairs was a very nice idea to keep people interested and to help them apply what they learned).

Kellie L 4 said...

Being a teacher was way harder than I thought it would be. I think that it is actually harder than being a student. While teaching pronouns, I realized that teachers have to be prepared as well as the students because of questions asked by students. Also, it took all groups a couple of days to prepare a 10 minute lesson. It must be really hard to prepare a full class lesson everyday! Being the student, I realized that every group had different ways of teaching their lesson. I learned a lot from the groups, especially the group that presented about the commas and semi-colons. I think that the group which was most effective was the group that played musical chairs. I noticed that when there is competition, it makes the students more involved. From this project, I think that my favorite part was learning about different parts of speech and having students teach. If there was something I would change about our presentation, it would be to include more fun and participative games because note taking and lectures didn't seem very fun. Also, I think that I should have been more organized with my notes because I found myself getting very confused as I taught the class. Overall, I really liked this project because it helped me realize what a hard job teaching is and I also learned a lot about grammar.

This assignment made me realize that teaching is not as simple as I thought. I have so much more respect for teachers now because now I know how much work they put into each lesson and daily assignments . I always wondered where teachers got their creative ideas and assumed that they got them from the teachers’ additions. After having to do my own lesson, I realize that it takes more than just photocopying a piece of paper. In this experience, it was really hard to teach my lesson because I was not sure if the other kids were going understand it the way I was trying to teach it . I first thought of the unit as an easy lesson, but when I got in front of the class it became a bigger challenge. I think I could have made my lesson more fun by practicing it first so I was not so nervous. I felt like I went too quickly and could have spent a little more time than just rushing through it. Even though my lesson was a quick lesson I felt that the kids got a good understanding of it because there was no questions or puzzled faces after I was done. It really helped me to have a visual to show the class. This allowed me to focus on a specific place and also helped me to not forget important details of my lesson. This assignment, even though it was simple, was a great help for my grammar. Because English is my second language ,my grammar is not that great but with this activity I learned so many tricks and rules that I know will be helpful for writing my future assignments.
Being a student for my fellow classmates was a positive experience . Most had good ideas to help us learn and many of the activities made the lessons easy to understand and also to remember all the little tricks and rules. Seeing all of the groups go and present all with different ideas made me realize how much creativity is really needed it to be a good teacher.

Prior to this project I have never been responsible for teaching my peers a certain topic. After teaching a class I have come to realize that teaching someone else information is more difficult than it appears. I also learned that people in general learn things in different ways, which makes teaching even more of a challenge. An effective teacher is able to find a way to address the needs of their students as a whole. Not only do teachers need to present information in an approachable way to students, but also need to capture the attention of the students to make learning more fun for both parties. When standing in front of a class room with people hanging on your every word, it is very nerve racking. I also noticed that when having fun with the situation and having fun it is easier to express yourself.
After sitting through a couple of other lessons, I realized that I enjoyed the class more when I wasn’t being “talked at”. Having experienced lessons I think my group should have not only talked to the class, but provide notes for them to copy ensuring information was covered. Teaching information to others requires a great understanding of a topic, and I believe I obtained a greater understanding for the use of verbs correctly. Before reading “Woe is I”, I didn’t know that there was an exact rule to choosing between the plural or singular form of a verb during “split decisions” I usually just picked the form that sounded right. Having been a teacher I now think I have become a better student, because I am more aware of the effort that goes into teaching in a way that is accessible for us to learn.

While doing this project I realized how difficult it is to get a point and objective done while teaching a lesson. Each student is very different. The way that students comprehend and understand a lesson is tremendously different. Each group presented their projects in a different way. I liked the way that other groups used games and easy worksheets to help us understand their lesson. I think this was a great idea because each group learned how to work well with each other and understand their grammar technique. Each group did well with presenting their lesson and I know I understood every lesson taught. I liked the way that each group explained it in a simple way and a way that made everyone feel comfortable to ask questions. It was a good experience to work with my group because we learned how to become more organized and make sure that we had enough for the daily plan. To be a teacher it must be difficult to have a schedule for every single class for a really long period of time. This project was a good opportunity for my classmates and I to realize what it takes to be a teacher.

Well teaching for me is difficult and I can completely understand how teachers feel. It is the most awkward feeling to have everyone looking and listening to you and being in the spotlight. Also it was difficult to get my point across of what I wanted to say because it was nerve-wracking with everyone looking at you. I learnt that to teach in front of an entire class requires a lot of skill. I guess with more experience teaching the awkwardness from it fades away. If I were to present again I think I would organize what I would say better because I didn’t feel as if I spoke clearly and the order I should have talked about the material was not correct. Yet I don’t think the way I did the “do now” helped at all and I jus felt like I lost everyone by my second sentence. I think that I understand possessives better because just focusing on that one area helped me grasp it better. As a student we have it easy and I now have a lot of respect what teachers have to do everyday.

will h 4 said...

it is hard being a teacher. I liked the experience of it though. it is very difficult getting your point across to all the students and make sure that they know it. I would have given the class better notes to explain it. the topic of mixed doubles was difficult to explain. the only thing we did was give examples of them. I think that that worked out very well though. After teaching this topic to the class i understand it much better. this is probably because i tried to learn it better so i could explain it to the class correctly. i liked being a student to my classmates. i liked all the games and worksheets that we did. they made it very easy to learn the topics. it is a good experience learning from my classmates because i got to see all of the ways that they learn. these tecniques helped me learn grammar and now i can even use them in the future.

Walking in the shoes of a teacher’s point of view was a completely different perspective then being the student. I did not realize how difficult it was to keep a whole classes attention while trying to teach a lesson. I know, as a student that it is easy to daze of while the teacher is talking but I never really thought of how the teachers felt when people are not paying attention, but while my group was teaching it aggravated me when I saw others looking away because then I felt like it is a waste of time. I give teachers a lot of credit for coming up with a lesson everyday that keeps students focused. My group did a power point, which I thought was going to be a great idea, but it did not turn out as affective as I had hoped. I think our group should have read the material more rather then just reading it right from the power point because then it made us look like we didn’t know what we were teaching. There was also a mix up with my part of the presentation because I was not able to go over the lesson plan with the class due to a misunderstanding. However putting notes on our lesson on the power point with examples to go along with it was useful because the students could copy it down and go over it with the examples later on, and this always helps me remember certain things. I liked how some groups had games for the class to play because it is fun and catches the students attention rather then just standing up in front of the class talking for however long and expecting all the students to be listening, because that is boring. Playing the role as a teacher forces us to get to know the grammar lesson we were teaching because we had to be ready to answer questions. If we were not comfortable with the material we had to teach the class then this will prevent students from comprehending the lesson. My experience as a teacher was useful because it taught me to respect teachers more and different methods that attract students and others that turn students away from the lesson. Being a student for my fellow classmates was interesting because I saw different methods that I liked and some that were not as affective on me. I liked the musical chair game done by maliek's group becasue it got me into the lesson.Everyone got there lesson across to me pretty clearly and I would not mind being a student of theirs again because they know what students like our age and what we are not so crazy about.

Andy T. 4 said...

Teaching the class was harder than I expected it to be. It was fun and hard at the same time. It was a fun activity to do and I learned a lot from it. Teaching is harder than it looks because you had to make sure everyone knew what you were teaching and didn’t just nod there head, or say yes so you could shut up and go onto the next lesson. My group taught the class about plurals. I thought this was a pretty easy lesson and that most people would have already knew what we were going to teach. I think I should have made my part more amusing to catch people’s attention so they weren’t bored because whenever I get bored in class, I feel like falling asleep. I wouldn’t want that to happen if I was teaching. I thought this was a fun thing to do and it made some of us realize how much hard work it takes to be a teacher.

Mr. Walsh said...

Andy, I think that is one of the hardest things to do -check for understanding.

Overall, I like reading your reflections. It gives me insight into how to effectively reach all of you and maybe no more barnyard noises and more candy.

Steven E. 4 said...

I used to think that being a teacher was an easy job. You teach a little, give kids papers to do, and grade it. But I learned that there is a lot more to it than just that. You have to know exactly what you are teaching in case someone asks a question. That is one thing I would have done differently. I would have learned more about pronouns and the difference between who and whom, which were the thing my group was teaching. We didn’t have a lot of time in our group to decide on who was doing what, so we were kind of disorganized when presenting. I wish we could have had better example to teach to the class and a better and more challenging game. I have a better understanding of pronouns and who and whom than I did before this project. I also understand the other topics a little better like the commas and mixed doubles. Being a student for my classmates was all right. I didn’t like having to take notes or do extra homework, but the games were fun like musical chairs.

Belinda L 4 said...

In order to be an exceptional teacher, one must be able to provide and explain knowledge and skills to the students. During the class assignment of teaching a class, I realized that it is not the easiest thing to do. It is very hard to teach since everyone learns at a different speed, uses a different method, and grasp different concepts, meaning it may take some longer than others to get a point although they are close. It is also very challenging to think of ideas to teach a class while still having in mind to let them participate to learn. As a student, I find that it is easier to do hands on activities in class then to just listen to lectures and take notes, which in some cases can lead to wondering minds and sleepy feelings. In our group lesson, we incorporated a little game to try to get students to stay with our thoughts and be able to use them when asked to. There also could have been numerous things done differently for our presentation, but I personally think that our lecture and teaching style could have been more fluent and more active. More notes and explanations should have been in our lesson, since at first, it seemed like not one student had any idea of what our group was doing. I also think that the lecture worked but not to the full extend, when everyone is able to use verbs correctly without a long time to think about it. The class activity (musical chairs) seemed to have added a great tone and feeling to the classroom. The activity was fun and had almost everyone participating, but it seems that some questions were wrong, so maybe it is not such a good activity for them to actually practice the use of verbs. From doing this project, my understanding of the subject grew tremendously. When using “I wish” and “if I” phrases, my first instinct is to use “was” instead of “were.” By teaching the class, I grasped the concept of using “were” and the reason why. I also solved the “look alike” phrases and when to use them. Confusing subjects like those were very troublesome to me. I hope that the class now has as much of an understanding of that as me, so using “look alikes” would be easier. From my experience I realized how hard teaching can really be. Being a student for my fellow classmates just added more evidence to that statement. I can see how hard it is to teach a class not only from my experience but also by the actions of my peers. It is no easy task, but each has their own way of showing our class the lessons they had planned.

Katherine Z 4 said...

Let me just say this, being a teacher is not as easy as it seems, this can be said for every job out there. One of things that I learn from this experience is that teacher requires a lot of mental preparation, if one is not prepare ahead of time, the lesson is not going to be going that smoothly. No one can just go with the flow; everything has to be plan out. Also not all things will go according to your plan. Even a perfect plan is a failure, if the students don’t get what you’re trying to teach them. Their reaction to the lesson is what counts the most. Another important key factor in teaching is actually being familiar with the subject that you’re teaching. I remember when I was teaching I wasn’t too sure on one of the words, while the class asks me what it means, I got stuck, this just gets to show that if the teacher is not familiar with the subject, how does s/he plan to teach others?

I think if I had another chance to teach, I would have thought more about the methods that I would use. It’s hard trying to come up with different activities that the students can use to learn what they have to learn, some students react with different techniques, like some learn better with notes, while others prefer games. However, personally for me I think that the more fun one has with the lesson, the better that they will learn. Next time I would definitely try to add a game into the lesson. During the lesson I think that asking the students about the meaning between 2 similar spelling and different meaning words has somewhat worked. They got to know some of them; however I think there was too many words, after a while, everyone just quiet down. So notes are a good technique but too many is just boring.

After teaching this lesson, I realize that all this time I’ve been making a lot of mistakes in my writing. A lot of the techniques, mistakes that I had to learn, I realize that I’ve been doing them on my writings. Now that I finished I will definitely be more careful with misused words. I think being a student while my classmates teach is really interesting; it’s definitely a new experience to me. Some of the group’s technique in teaching I realize are similar to the ways teachers often teach, they use power points, they write down notes for others to copy, and some used games. Some of the groups I thought did really while, I really enjoyed the game one, it definitely kept me wanting to learn more.

Ashley N. 4 said...

My experience as a teacher really discouraged me from pursuing a career in the teaching field, not that I had wanted to in the first place, but I have a large amount of respect for teachers now, who have to do this regularly. It was not an easy task. At first, I thought that this activity would be easy; I thought that I was just passing on my knowledge of commas, which many people already knew about. It was not as easy as it looked. I had to study the usage of commas in depth, which is a mundane task that I did not enjoy. And then, the part that I thought would be the easiest turned out to be the hardest. It was difficult to tell, while I was up there presenting our lesson, if the students really learned or not. I think as a group, we should’ve used more interactive methods, such as the musical chair activity, or a reward method, like, giving out candy for every right answer, therefore motivating the students to really pay attention. Also, instead of reading off the screen, I should’ve used more of my own examples, because obviously the class is not illiterate and could’ve read the words themselves. I also should’ve asked questions.
I feel that I do understand the usage of commas better, which will actually probably really help in several fields, such as journalism class. I even found myself using what I learned while correcting the articles of my peers.
Being a student for my fellow classmate was an interesting experience. At first it felt awkward being taught to by my friends, but they really took on the role of a teacher well. Some groups, such as the musical chairs one, really made it enjoyable, whereas the common misused words group was a bit dull, but I still managed to learn a lot.
Overall, although it was a fun experience, I would not do it again, unless I had a month to prepare before.

To teach someone means to skill someone in a curtain subject. You skill a person in a certain area. That seemed easy at first, but after this experience I changed my mind. Teaching is difficult and irking. The teacher has to have the precise methods and scheduled for everything. Time had to be managed carefully so that everyone can be taught. The methods can not be slow and boring, or else you will lose the students. Teaching relies a lot on methods, interesting and lively methods help students learn more efficiently and keenly. The students stay awake during the lesson also. My groups lesson wasn’t completely dull because we had a PowerPoint, a visual, for them to look at. However, taking notes made them pay more attention to their notes taken then to the actual lesson. Our lesson wasn’t interactive, it was quick and simple. I do not think we should have just did the PowerPoint, an interactive activity should have been included. I think that the PowerPoint idea was good for the students because it was easier for them to copy down notes easily. Our whole presentation was based on commas. This experience also helped me understand the common mistakes of the uses of commas, although I do not think I have mastered them yet. This is because I got too nervous in presenting the presentation to the class that I lost focus. I tried to focus on the lesson plan more. Besides just teaching, I got to be a student to my peers. I would say that it was odd being taught by peers. It makes you want to listen to what they have to say. Overall, I enjoyed this experience.

MR. WALSH!!!!!!
My computer crashed, and has not been able to turn on for the past two days, (Wednesday/Thursday).
I know it is no excuse for being late, but I was hoping I could get half credit. :(



Teaching and preparing for a class is a lot more work than it seems. We had to teach the class about grammer. I am always correcting my friends' grammer mistakes, but actually teaching a class about it was hard. I learned that it is harder to actually teach than it seems. In your head you can picture how the lesson is going to go, and sometimes the results are different. I know I expected the lesson was going to be longer, but I think our lesson ended up being the shortest out of the entire class. I wish we had a topic with more information in it. I guess you can never really predict how something is going to happen. I know you are suppose to learn from your mistakes, but when you actually go up there, you forget everything you tell yourself the night before. I hate group projects, but when presenting, I like being in a group because if you forget something, there is someody there to help you. I realize I talk quickly when I am nervous, and I wish I slowed down, and talked more coherantly. (I even took out my retainers so I did not talk with a lisp.) I wish I more organized and more prepared. It was not until after the lesson that one student in the class brought ot my attention that there were errors in the worksheet that I had made. I was also in charge of the objectives, and when I looked around at everyone's lengthy objectives and compared it to mine, I felt as if I let my team down. I do have a better understanding for my particular grammatical unit, I never knew that there were rules for making names plural. I also did not know the rules for making a word ending in a "y" plural. Being a student was fun because I thought everyone in my class did a great job. I did not like getting in front of everybody, and I felt nervous for the groups that went up to teach because I knew how they felt.
