6Her Glorious Past and Hopeful Future Georgia, an exquisitely beautiful country of 5.5 million people, is ringed by the Caucasus Mountains and set at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. It lies between the Black and Caspian Seas and borders on Turkey, Russia and Armenia. Since recorded time, Georgians have been famous for their hospitality to strangers. The visiting ancient Greeks knew Georgia as the land of the Golden Fleece. It was a woman, St. Nino, who brought Christianity to Georgia in 330 A.D. Georgian wine has been produced for over 3,000 years and Georgian literature dates back to the fifth century A.D. Scholars have compared the 12th century Georgian poet Shota Rustaveli to Dante and Shakespeare
7In May 1991, Georgia declared independence from the Soviet Union In May 1991, Georgia declared independence from the Soviet Union. In spite of major efforts towards stabilizing the economy and instituting democratic practices, Georgia is still struggling economically. The new Georgian Government under President Mikheil Saakashvili, who was elected in January 2004, is endeavoring to restore the Georgian economy and renew the hopes of the Georgian people.Currently, the Georgian Government is unable to provide most of her people with gas, electricity or social services. Georgian industry, still suffering from the Soviet legacy, has collapsed leaving many workers without pay or without jobs at all.Georgians who once enjoyed one of the highest literacy rates in the world now have schools struggling from a lack of heat and unpaid teacher salaries

15My Reflection About J.E.B Stuart High School ESOL Department
16My Reflection About J.E.B Stuart High School First of all I feel very fortunate to be sent to JEB Stuart high school as a teacher, and met excellent stuff of that school, My mentor, Mrs DAVIS ESOL teacher, who gives me constant support and exquisite educational guidance, and Mrs. Ruth the head of ESOL department, whose enthusiasm helped fuel our lessons and working.We went to school on Wednesday 29 of September. The day began with the tour of school and meeting in workroom. I was admired by the teachers attitude and devotion toward their students. As I noticed there is a big diversity in a school, there are a lot of students from central America, Guatemala, Honduras, etc. which makes a deep cultural difference, all of them have their traditions, and the way of living, but they, as well as the stuff of the school constantly try to get on well to each other.The schooldays are divided into different parts Red Days and Blue Days ,according to the traditional colors of the school, and the students have different lessons and different assignments for these days.I learned many new teaching methods, Mrs Davis had very interesting agenda, warm up games, grammar references, and etc. the lesson was quite interesting. After lessons we went to the Guidance and Career Centre, where we had very interesting session about the school policy, dress code, student assistance program, how do the parents apply for the school, Mrs Ruth gave us very interesting books about teaching methods and lesson plans.
17Now I want to let you know about our second visit at JEB Stuart high school. We began our working in PLATO, this is the name of the computer lab. Where we were given our passwords and contracts for using computers. We worked there a lot till 12 o`clock and we were able to write the tests of Master`s level, That tests gave us a lot of practice, experience, and self-confidence, we also visited the library ,they have enormous interesting books and looked them through.On that day I had an opportunity to meet other teachers and attend their classes, one of them was Mrs Capone, she teaches Science, her lesson was so good and beautiful, I wished never ended it, she used the smart board during the lesson, Mrs. Capone has very interesting program which is called “Concepts Science I ” this course is designed to help improve the student`s English and Science knowledge and prepare them for the “core” science classes: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Geosystem,Quarter grades will be based on the following categories and percentage:Written assignments and lab reports %Tests, quizzes and performance assessments 30%Homework %This school has such tradition: every year on that time they meet Alumni, they have homecoming events, for school 50-th Anniversary, so we were invited to the PEP RALLY and homecoming parade, we had a wonderful time there,
18My goal is to adjust new methods and new teaching strategies, that will meet the needs of my kids in Georgia, enhance my teaching skills, and increase my knowledge about the US culture and educational system.
19J.E.B. Stuart High School My observation about student assessment system in the classroom, I attend classes at J.E.B Stuart High School, my mentor teacher is tviy Devis , she is real professional, she uses many kinds of assessment system, and here is what I have observed during classis, though we didn`t have enough time for this. I am going to use the following assessment methods in my school, because it is new for my students and I will also share them to my colleagues.We had very interesting discussion about topic.As teachers, we must not just want to believe that all students can learn, but must really want each and every student to feel the exhilaration of success.Student`s Assessment is based on the contention that student achievement and academic self-concept are determined, by and large, on the basis of students’ perceptions of their own success in classrooms. It presents a philosophy that places students at the center of the classroom equation. The single most important value any teacher must bring to the classroom assessment process is a strong sense of caring about student wellbeing in school
20I found out that complex outcomes to assess, including: • Knowledge outcomes: material to be mastered either through memorization or via using references; • Reasoning Outcomes: ways to use knowledge to meet specific problem-solving challenges; • Skill outcomes: things that students should be able to do as a result of mastering the material presented; • Affective outcomes: feelings students might experience as a result of study. “Assessment is not a mathematical challenge. Assessment is a challenge in clear thinking and effective communication”- she says,
211. Classroom assessments provide the basis of information for student, parent, teacher, principal, and community decision-making. 2. They motivate students to try-or not to! 3. They screen students in and out of programs, giving them access to the special services they may need. 4. They provide at least part of the basis for teacher and principal evaluation. Classroom Assessment unfolds in four parts: Understanding Classroom Assessment Context, Understanding Assessment Methods, Classroom Applications of Assessment, Communicating About Student Achievement. Each part offers unique perspectives on the classroom assessment process, yet the four parts present a unified overall picture of the assessment process and its place in day-to-day instruction.
22Involving Students in Assessing Reasoning 1. Have students think aloud when problem-solving.2. Have students learn to label an understand the kinds of thinking theyare using.3. Ask students to probe each other's reasoning.4. Offer students repeated opportunities to participate in developing sampletests items that tap reasoning.5. When asking questions that require reflection and thought, wait for aresponse.6. Avoid questions that call for a yes or no answer.7. Use concept mapping.8. Have students design essay and performance assessments that measurereasoning.9. Set up a classroom display on the kinds of reasoning valued
23Designing Portfolio Systems 1 Designing Portfolio Systems 1. Who will be involved in the portfolio design? 2. What will be the purpose of the portfolio? 3. What specific outcomes will be reflected in portfolio material? 4. What kinds of assessment information will be considered appropriate to meet the portfolio's purpose? 5. What guidelines will govern the selection of material for the portfolio? 6. Who shall make the selections? 7. What criteria will be used to evaluate entries in the portfolios? 8. How will student self-reflection be worked into the system? 9. What criteria will be used to evaluate the quality of the self reflection? 10. What criteria will be used and who will evaluate the portfolio as a whole? 11. Who owns the portfolio and who has access to the portfolio? 12. How will it be stored and transmitted to users?
24HOW TO BE AN ESL TEACHERLove kids-Embrace diversity-Know each student`s name-Smile-Be flexible-Sing songs-Keep the kid`s laughing-Open your heart-Always encourage-Be dramatic-Display student work-Laugh at your mistakes-Wear holiday clothesGet your rest-Have an international food`s day-Be patient-Show compassion-smile
26Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Primary : Avoidance (6 o`clock) Backup: Affiliative (2 o`clock)Step 2My Avoidance Score is in Low Range, so this means to me that I probably prefer to confront things rather than avoid them. I seldom experience significant doubt over my ability to deal with problems, and are usually not afraid to take occasional risks. Rather than always choosing the safest route, I am likely to explore different alternatives for accomplishing something. Confidence in myself contributes to my belief that I can change things for the better. When I do mistakes, I probably see them as opportunities to learn and grow.Step 3Significant Person Ideas/Behaviors I might Have Learned(or situation) Generally I am the person who likesIt would be better to learn struggle in life, I`m never afraid ofon other`s mistakes, not to dealing with different kinds of pro-experience myself Blems. but there is one thingthat I`dreally like to improve,to learn how toavoid to confront things, and choose the safest route
27Step 4 Personally Positive Consequences Self-Defeating Consequences Avoid problems. Prefer to confront things rather than avoid them. choose the safest route. Explore different alternatives. Self-confidence. To be too risky . Hide our feelings. Professionally Positive Consequences Self-Defeating Consequences Ignore problems face the situations that carry The risk of personal defeat. Maximize interaction with stuff minimize interaction with Members. colleagues. Realistic goals to accomplish can`t provide subordinates with realistic goals. Step 5 Some positive differences: If I changed my behavior in this area, my life will really change, because I will know how to ignore my problems, I will not take occasional risks, explore different alternatives for accomplishing something. Some negative differences: In my opinion When I make the mistake, it will be especially difficult for me to forgive myself and move on. I will typically refrain from examining and expressing my feelings. My tendency to focus on my own concerns can cause me to ignore what is happening around me.
28SAMPLE LESSON PLAN BASED ON MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES Integrated Lesson Plan Topic – “The Forty Niners” Grade – IXth grade The subjects integrated with– English Language; Geography, Music Number of st s.– 23
29OBJECTIVES Engl. - Reading for purpose. Engl. - Enrich the vocabulary with new words.Engl. - Connect the words logically with each other.Engl. - Develop listening skills.Geogr.- Research the routes of 49-ers and transfer them onto the map.Geogr.- Use Geography's international language-map for research.Geogr.- Travel with imaginary route to make research.
30Music - Perceive the composition according to the context. Music – Guess the content of the song and pick the information about the characters.ICT – Look for the necessary information by ICT, though the internet.ICT – Involve the ICT in the lesson in order to improve it.ICT – Use ICT with their classmates to improve their knowledge implement their ambition and interests.MATERIALSFormats, markers, books, maps, cards, USB-drivers, computers, type recorder, DVD-disk
31PROCEDURES FOR LEARNING ACTIVITIES Activity#1name of the activity:aim: connect the words logically.time: 15 min.work IndividuallyStep II give the instructions to the Sts, to read the text silently, they will have the time. 10 min. and write all the new words in their notebooks.Step III ask the students to dictate the words. I write them on the blackboard in random.pick up, suffer, justicefrom, quiet, empty,expensive, discover, sailors.rich, government,disease,
32Step III The students are given the task (they work individually) guess the meaning of the words by the context Step IV connect the words logically with each other e.g pick up government rich sailors
33Step V(work in pairs)I give instructions: find the sentences using these words and read loudly and the second partner should translate into Georgian.This activity develops: Linguistic Intelligence, Logical Mathematical intelligence, Intrapersonal( individualized instructions) IntelligencesActivity #2(work in groups)aim: Using the new words restore the text.i explain the aim of the activity, what the sts. will have to do. There is the extract form the text form which the words are missed, the sts will fill the empty gaps, and the first letter of the word there is also given. they must close the books and do the work.the extract is written on the Monitors:
34there were three w _(I)_ to get California from the eastern United S_(II)__. The most comfortable way was to go by S ___(III)___ around the tip of South A___(IV)___. and then north to San F___(V)___. by the time P___(VI)___arrived, there was not going to be much G___(VII)___ for them to find. A faster way to get to California was to C___VIII)___ Central America.After the activity the sts. exchange, the places in front of the computers and correct each other`s works, and two leaders make the presentation .This activity develops special intelligence
35Activity #3 time-15min. For this activity we ask the Geography teacher for help. We together divide the class into three groups of travelers. They are given such task. ”Imagine that you` re the 49-ers, and you are desperately going to look for gold in California. From the text we know that there are three ways from Eastern States to get to California: 1.The most comfortable way was to go by ship around the tip of South America ,and then North to San Francisco, but there was the problem –it took between four and eight months to complete the journey. 2.A faster way to get to California was to cross the Central America, where the distance between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans was the shortest, and then continue North by boat. But there was the problem: The 49-ers who came that way could expect bad food, bad water, disease, and the possibility that the boat might never come to pick them up.
363.A third way was to cross the country by land, in covered wagons, but there was also the problem: this way was slow and dangerous, some wagon trains suffered terribly, by both from freezing winter weather and from Indian attacks.Each group takes the route get by voting. They should research the way 49-ers traveled and transfer the route on the map. They have the political maps on the screen,The group which guess the right route will be the winner.This activity develops Special intelligence, Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence (competitive and cooperative games),Interpersonal Intelligence,
37Activity # 5 /listening/ Time 10 min For this activity our music teacher helps us .we give the task to the students. Listen to the music, insert the missing words in the song and pay much attention to what period of American History is expressed in the song, what genre does the song belong to, what is the feeling of singer? etc. This activity makes very friendly atmosphere in the classroom, they listen, pick the main information about the characters, the students define the situation in which the 49-ers had been. This activity develops Musical Intelligence Interpersonal Intelligence, Linguistic Intelligence. 5. REFLECTION This lesson Plan is based upon MI Theory, activities spanning all seven Intelligences have been used to achieve the instructional objectives.

Students figure out the differences for themselves Students think about the words to help internalize them Students write and then “handle” the words to help understand and remember them. 4.What are the steps involved in using this strategy or method? Students read the text silently to the end and while reading write out the unknown words and make their own list of new words. They should write the words exactly as they appear in the text, E.g “looked” Check the meaning of unknown with their partner, Make the list of unknown words as a pair, Count the number of words on their list and tell the number to the teacher,
74The pair who`s got the most number of words comes to the board and writes their list in the left column.One person from other pairs come to the board and add the words from their list that are not on the board.The students match the words on the left with the words on the right individually,5. When would this method or strategy be useful in your setting?In learning new vocabularyIn a formal vocabulary program throughout the year6.What would you like other teachers in your school to know about this method or strategy?It is extremely easy and requires no special materials. The words or lists must be neat and large enough to read from a distance. It helps the teacher to remember to use the words as often as possible and keeps them in front of the students so they can really become part of their vocabulary. If they are in groups it helps students associate the words with topics.

77My Reflective Statement on Learning We, teachers of TEA program, were lucky to have a chance to have sessions in ESL Research, Methods& Assessment; We met very interesting and well educated people Nora Elbilawi`s classes were very helpful during the whole course ,which were supported with academic books, articles, reliable websites on the question, She was always ready to share her knowledge and experience with us. Her encouragement and dedication was impressive. It helped us much to explore and try new things, we had not done before
78SIGNIFICANT LEARNING FROM These SESSIONS: LEARN INSTRUCTION MODEL, to design lesson planBackward design to develop unit plan and lesson plansUse of different types of assessment strategies i.e. Formative assessment, Summative assessment, designing Rubric for performance assessment.Design lesson plan based upon MI theory.Use Brain Compatible Instruction in choosing the activities for the classes.The most interesting topic for me was Integrated Thematic Instruction (ITI), acomprehensive school improvement model designed by Susan Kovalik in 1982to increase student performance and teacher satisfaction.And generally Integrated Curriculum to foster students making connections among their learningI would like to thank her for the support and dedication. I feel how I grew as a specialist after her sessions. As soon as I get home I will share this knowledge and experience with teachers of my region. I will never forget your wonderful classes THANK YOU!!!
