Cindy, after you have written YOUR approach, we will happily give you further suggestions and our ideas. The key word in this assignment is "your".
I understand but, I just need an example, Please.
Which paragraph would you like to see as an example?
Which age level are you planning to teach?
Are you a constructivist? How would manage a classroom differently if you were a behaviorist?
I am a constructivist, I just need an example on how to approach the classroom organization.Then I think I could take it from there.
As a constructivist, my approach to classroom organization is to set it up to provide the maximum learning for each student. Desks are arranged in groups of four to facilitate student collaboration and cooperation. Time limits are flexible for the various projects. Students are encouraged to think, ask questions, and voice their opinions. Creativity is valued and student art work pertaining to the subject matter is prominently displayed.
These sites should help you, too.
Thank you, I like the idea of sitting the students in a circle and each one takes a chance at reading or the students play the game called popcorn, were the student who finished reading picks someone else to read. This is for middle school reading.
Do you want your classroom set up permanently in a circle? Would an oval also work? You need to configure the desks/tables to accommodate the furniture and the classroom shape.
What about individual silent reading and various projects involved with middle school reading? Would the circle or oval also work with these activities?
I like the idea,the students reading out loud. Then I can tell who has trouble reading and who does not want to read period. When we read a book about a play, we can act it out in the middle of the circle.
Remember that some students have excellent comprehension skills, but for various reasons do not like to read aloud. That doesn't mean that they shouldn't read aloud, but, please don't use only oral reading as teaching and evaluation methods.
Thank you for all your help.
You're very welcome. :-)
I have a question for you How do you deal with your discipline problem? It say's to let the students work out their own discipline problems with the other students, are they nuts? I give the 3 strike rule, then there is the ugly referral. Then to the principles office.
