Write your reflections from the classmate post by selecting an idea from the rea

Write your reflections from the classmate post by selecting an idea from the reading describing your thoughts and feelings about it and why you agree. (MINIMUM OF 150 WORDS) CLASSMATES POST One essential tool for leaders who seek organizational change and improvement is storytelling. There is a reciprocal reward of inspiration that comes from hearing and telling stories. We can motivate others to attempt feats within their classroom and the school that might otherwise have seemed unthinkable but we are motivated to rethink relive and recreate our own narratives. And like any storyteller it is our goal to reach our students through our instruction. If we are lucky we will inspire curiosity and a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Teacher leaders take their storytelling to the next level by sharing their practice insights expertise questions challenges triumphs and more with a larger audience of colleagues families communities and policymakers within the education ecosystem and in society at large. The goal is to resonate here too to connect impact influence inspire in the hope that they will be able to play a small part in transforming climate culture and teaching and learning opportunities in schools. But to affect this kind of change teacher leaders must not only tell stories but they must also tell effective stories. Every teacher has a story to tell; but finding and crafting a compelling authentic story is a skill that requires attention effort and a few great strategies.

Write your reflections from the classmate post by selecting an idea from the reading describing your thoughts and feelings about it and why you agree. (MINIMUM OF WORDS) CLASSMATES POST In this chapter the author gives us great information on the strategies to make sure the attention of the students is focused. As we study this chapter the author gives us strategies to motivate students. The author mentions this about ways to motivate students: Tell students the purpose rationale importance and application of the lesson or activity objective. For the students to be able to understand concepts having some direction will keep them focused on the task at hand. This concept also helps the instructor in preparation to make sure the lessons is clearly laid out for the students. The author goes through many more tactics such as focus on a question provide initial examples etc. The author also tells us that we should state the objective. One of the most effective strategies to use in the opening of a lesson or activity is to tell students directly what they will learn and why. When students under-stand what to learn how to demonstrate their learning and why the learning is valuable they become empowered and self-regulated learners. Regardless of how important the content how engaging the activity how formative the assessment or how differentiated the instruction unless all students see recognize and understand the learning target from the very beginning of the lesson one factor will remain constant: The teacher will always be the only one providing the direction focusing on getting students to meet the instructional objectives. (Price Nelson). The Growth of the student is what we are concerned with most. To do so we must learn to ask questions. The text mentions that questions provide a role in helping the teacher review so students can understand the material. personally I love to ask to follow up questions to make sure the concept was attained. This process of growth strategies is a wonderful! This does take some time to implement but when teachers and students can focus and ask the right questions we can do great things in the classroom.

Write your reflections from the classmate post by selecting an idea from the reading describing your thoughts and feelings about it. (MINIMUM OF 150 WORDS) CLASSMATES POST This chapter reading about UDL guides the design of learning experiences to proactively meet the needs of all learners. The core aspect of UDL is that the learning goals are the same for all students while providing different ways these goals are achieved. The UDL principle of Multiple means of representation can be met through purchasing a range of books including large print easy read formats e-books videos with subtitles and sign language tactile books and braille books. These multiple avenues enable a greater number of students to access literature. Multiple means of expression provide avenues for a variety of approaches for students to express their understanding of the text instead of the usual ˜read aloud. These approaches could be via sign language video role play board games and storyboards. Multiple means of engagement mean that a range of student interests and backgrounds should be incorporated within the texts to engage students. Differentiated instruction is a teaching approach that tailors the instruction to all students learning needs. All the students have the same learning goal. But the instruction varies based on students interests preferences strengths and struggles. Instead of teaching the whole class in one specific way (lecture) a teacher uses a bunch of different methods. There are four areas where teachers can differentiate instruction: content process projects and learning environment. UDL and differentiated instruction are similar concepts that share many of the same goals ideas about learning and even classroom practices. However the two differ in a few key aspects of their guiding principles. They both share a common end goal to help all students to learn and achieved the most they possibly can. They both believe that students should not all be forced to fit into the mold of a single curriculum. However they differ in the ways in which they go about achieving their goal. Differentiated instruction places a lot of emphasis on formative assessments which make the basis for many instructional decisions. The key is to be constantly assessing students determining what they need and then adjusting instruction in order to meet those needs. UDL looks at adjusting instruction like an architect designing a building rather than adjusting as problems arise in the lesson the teacher anticipates these problems and incorporates modifications into the curriculum from the outset. It makes sense to include both in the classroom. Teachers should be anticipating student differences and planning for them from the start. However they should also be monitoring student progress and implementing adjustments that need to be made as they go. References: Price K. M. & Nelson K. L. (2018).
