Hello, I'm a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected. I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. Please let me know and I will assist further. Thank you!
I need it by 9pm tonight
Hi! I see you have been hoping for some help with this. As you might imagine, I have done a few of these. Please tell me exactly what help you are seeking, and I'll try to be of assistance. Thank you!
basically a sample of how the question is answer so i can make input where needed
I know you're in a hurry on this, so I will try to answer as best I can. Keep in mind that my experience lies in English/Language Arts classrooms. Also, don't be afraid! All teachers have to do this! I will answer your questions as you have them listed.
1. Classroom management. A strategy I used as a first-year teacher was a list of classroom rules posted right by the door. The students knew what was expected of them. One of the rules was "Three strikes and you're out!" What that meant was a verbal warning first, a detention for the next infraction, and the third time was a trip to the principal and a call to the parents. I found this to be effective except the kids took advantage in that they had three chances. I later changed this to two chances. This helped a lot! So this was an effective management tool and I changed it to make it more effective.
2. For this answer, just write about the interactions you had with parents (if any). An example might be, "I communicated effectively with most parents I met. For those who weren't showing much interest, I spoke to them with much enthusiasm toward their child. I found that the more I showed this enthusiasm, the better they responded."
3.For this answer, use your actual teaching experience. Did your students meet your teaching expectations? Every class has different state standards to meet. For this one I would answer like this," My instruction covered every state standard that was required. Throughout the semester I have seen student improvement and mastery of learning goals in the following areas: (list areas where your students mastered what you were teaching). This mastery is evident as most students' grades were significantly higher in these areas.
4. For this question simply answer which of your learning goals were most effective. You may also want to offer strategies for improvement. I would answer (for one example). "My students have improved greatly in their knowledge of English grammar, reading, and reading comprehension. This is due to the use DOL (daily oral language), the Accelerated Reading program, and my offering of after school tutoring."
5. For this one, concentrate on the areas you feel you need to improve and give three examples on how you plan to do this.
6. For this one you are being asked to answer with the least successful of your teaching methods. I would answer similar to this, "Some of my students were struggling with some difficult concepts from some of the literature we were reading. By starting the after school tutoring program, I have seen great improvement in reading and writing about reading skills.
I wasn't quite sure about the last question, but I hope this has helped! If you ever need any help in the future please ask for me! Tory W. or merltmw. I'd be glad to help you all I can. Best of luck to you. If this was helpful to you please give me a good rating! Thank you!
