Education -- Teaching Observations And Research Paper


The materials for this module consisted of individual sets for each group that were easily assembled into experimental designs utilizing different types of soil, inclined planes, and water dispensed through variable means to closely simulate natural erosion processes (Huber & Moore, 2001). According to the teacher, the use of the materials dramatically increased student interest and also subject matter retention of the same Earth Science concepts that are typically the subject of passive learning via textbook reading assignments and lectures by teachers (Huber & Moore, 2001). The teacher credited the hands-on involvement as well as the design of the lessons to emphasize critical thinking and inquiry-based analyses with the ability to sustain the high level of student interest.

The teacher also explained that much contemporary research in education has been dedicated to identifying and understanding the different types of human intelligences (Gardner, 1999). According to her, there are at least six other distinct types of

Classroom Observation The students poured into the classroom, and the teacher began the mass lesson immediately, without any small talk. The eighth grade class consisted of twenty students of various genders and ethnicities. The topic of the day was algebraic equations, and the teacher's authoritative attitude conveyed her firm grasp of the subject matter. Her serious tone and attitude created a sense of urgency about her goals, which were obviously to

It is a quantitative instrument, that has been statistically validated, and probably most appropriate as an instrument to ensure adherence to certain state and/or national standards. MCC -- Dialogue approach to rating a teacher's performance. Both qualitative and quantitative in nature, does encourage robust dialogue between teacher and observer, and more self-analysis from the instructor.

Classroom Observation

Introduction It is easy to assume that a comprehensive decision making theory gives a reliable basis for an observation scheme for a classroom. However, it is apparent that even though the practical and theoretical ventures overlap in many respects the core of the theoretical tenets are fundamentally variant. They are broader in some respects and narrow in others. The deterrents of real time implementation are significant and thus the scheme of

Educational Observation I observed a high school English teacher as the teacher led the students through a study of Shakespeare's Hamlet. While the students have to complete a certain number of English classes to graduate, they can choose most of the English classes they take. This was not an advanced placement class, but the students in it had chosen it and so presumably had an interest in Shakespeare. There were 18
