Strategy Sheet #5 Name of method or strategy: Student-centered, integrating Multiple Intelligence theory. When is this method or strategy useful? When the class is large with students of mixed abilities. When the class is heterogeneous with students having different styles of learning. When the students are learning English as a Foreign Language. When the students have low level of English proficiency. Why or how is this method or strategy useful? It can be made effective and useful if the lesson plan is designed in such a manner that it would challenge the intelligence of different style of learners. Like there will be questions and tasks suitable for students having different approaches to learning. What are the steps involved in using this strategy or method? In this strategy there are eight ways of learning. So the lesson in the class has to be such which would engage all the students in different types of activities involving reading, writing, talking, listening, drawing, visualizing, critical thinking, touching and acting. Such lesson may also have tasks and activities which will have something to connect to a student’s personal life or to living things and natural phenomena. When would this method or strategy be useful in your setting? In my setting that is in my class where I have about 125 students this strategy will be the most appropriate one. My class is a heterogeneous one and the students, though in Grade 12 have different levels of English proficiency. Besides what I have noticed is that not all students respond to my other type of teaching methods. And now I have learned that I should use the teaching strategy using MI (Multiple Intelligences) now and then to help my students to learn better. What would you like other teachers in your school to know about this method or strategy? I would be very proud and fortunate to help my co-teachers and colleagues to learn about the benefits and the positive sides of this strategy. I will first ask them to sit in my class and observe me conducting the class using the integrated MI theory of learning. I will let my students share their views and thoughts about the teaching method and have the teachers decide for themselves about the advantages of the strategy, particularly in our context and setting.
Field work assessment reflection of Otabek Kobiljonov During our field work observing procedure we were able to see and observe so many assessment types. In order to monitor students’ progress, it is essential to consider assessment as you put a lesson plan together. This procedure can be complex and challenging due to various language proficiency levels of students. During periods my mentor used Authentic, reading, collaborative assessment, oral language assessment, writing assessment, peer assessment, self assessment. As a sample as these are that she asks to do her students some activity and after completing the task she gives answer sheet so that students can correct their mistakes if there any.
After finishing the unit she tests them by reflecting all materials they had. She sometimes uses peer assessment by giving them leading questions like: What you like in your friend’s story? What you like her to change next time retelling what she read before? What kind of positive information you got from your friend’s story? What can you advise him or her to improve in story telling? etc. One day she made wring assessment, she asked students giving instructions she involved in the construction of narratives on topics in which they have a personal interest. Students were asked to share their writing with peers, who comment on the piece and ask questions and encouragement. Teacher says them to do some feedback to edit and to revise their work.
Reflection of field works at Holmes Middle School of Otabek Kobiljonov We all 5 TEA participants arrived at school in time. The school building was nice. We can see the school buses were arriving, departing after overloaded the school children. Our school has a pretty nice view and the place. Ecological system of that place was excellent chosen for the school. All participant interns and I went into the school and approached to the
info desk to sign in as it was written on the script of the school. As we introduced at info desk the responsible worker of the school came and greeted, welcomed us very friendly. She led us to the meeting room of the school and while we were going through the corridor we were asked to stop because on the school radio the principle was saying something and every student in the classes was repeating his words. This kind of event is done everyday. We were surprised seeing the student who was on the wheelchair for disabled people. Immediately I understood that inclusive education is practiced in the
United States already which is going to be actual case in my country. So we were invited to the room where our school principle welcomed us. The principle’s deputies explained us school rules and we were invited to go into our mentor’s classes. My mentor, Mrs. Lawyer, firstly I thought she was so strange person but after a while I changed my opinion about her. I understood that she is very experienced, interesting person. Introducing me to her students she said that I am also was the same teacher as she and not training to be a teacher. She asked me to write what country I am from and what is my name on the whiteboard. During first period she asked me to observe her classes then asked me to help her to explain the adjective to the students. While observing her classes I could see the student centered methods of teaching were applying by her.
She was very patient for her student’s and addressing them with “sir” or “madam”. After achieved good results in explanation of the adjective I was satisfied myself and was glad that the day was successful. I reached my goals of that day. The first day was excellent. Having finished internship for that day we all went back to the university.
Otabek Kobiljonov self-improvement Plan Uzbekistan Step1. My primary style is Oppositional (7 o ’ clock position). Step2. The style I have chosen to work on is Oppositional(7 o ’ clock) My score for the Oppositional style means to me that I tend to take a slightly somehow skeptical stand toward other. This approach originates in a belief that my ideas are slightly superior to anyone else ’ s. While I can be direct, I am slightly prone to opposing things indirectly. This tendency to criticize in a roundabout way often makes it a little difficulty for to know what I am thinking, and may cause them to see me as manipulative. Step 3. Some situations when people are strongly trying to oppose me I try my best to oppose them strongly, if I am right in that case of course. I should recognize that other opposing me people have something valuable to contribute. I should seek out other ’ s opinions and consider them objectively. Listen more attentively to those around me. I should try to be more loyal to others and a good listener.
Step 4. Personally positive consequences of using this style is having an opportunity to have my own opinion, will not believe to the people who sometimes can not be fair or cheat me. I will rarely be tricked or cheated. Personally Self-Defeating consequences people in the society where I work and live will think about me that I am an obstacle to overcome. I will not have a respect among my colleagues, friends and others if I am over critic. Professionally Positive Consequences of my style are the ability to use my insight and questioning techniques in a more productive, less antagonistic way. I will get a more accepting attitude toward criticism. I will develop myself more professionally because opposing others; We usually find perfect ways to overcome our mistakes and learn seeing anybody else ’ s failures and not to repeat them. Professionally Self-Defeating Consequences are having a lot of opposes who directly criticize me even they are not right and will think the same about me as I am thinking about them. This will resist me in my progressive career because usually people do not like to be criticized and this kind of
Step 5. If I become less oppositional I shall have an ability to use my insight and questioning techniques in a more productive, less antagonistic way, also I will have an increased application for the benefits of sincerely praising others. I ’ ll be more flexible while receiving some information. Some negative differences will be and I will feel myself like a obeyed person by somebody who doesn ’ t have his own opinion. activity will resist me to make some positive thoughts about me.
Step 6. Defensive style Recognize other ’ s opinion and be more objective. Alternative style Solicit ideas and feedback. Ask others what they think. Step 7. I should be more attentive listener, to recognize other people ’ s ideas and be more tolerant. Step 8. I just should try to do it and I am sure I can manage to achieve my goal.
