My another role

Internship experience in Nazareth School, Chanadapura, Bengaluru.I want to share my experience through a Poem..

Here it goes …

They call me -“Sanjana Miss”
One which I had dreamt
Since my childhood.
They greeted, wished me
Inspite of my frequent entries to their class
My heart filled with their foot prints
And full of their respect
When they witness me.
You gems are the reason for my
Happiness, curiosity, content , enjoyment.
Yet you were the reasons of my
anger, irritation and discontent too ūüėú
You made me realise my other facets,
You taught me more than I taught you.
The beautiful curve on your face
Engulfed my bosom more than
Your dull heads down.
My heart was in pain
When I rebuked at you
However you all are the best part of my life !!!!
You Showered love and affection ;
Gifted me beautiful memories..

What is Flipped Classroom?

It is a teaching/instructional method, opposite to the traditional method of teaching, involves more of online and outside classroom activities. It is also a form of blended learning.

 

How does it work?

  • Students here are instructed to view certain short videos, read the certain notes in the home before the class session and would come prepared for the class. The class time is devoted to the discussions, projects, activities, tests.
  • The students inquire the text content, test their skills applying heir knowledge and would interact and collaborate with each other in the classroom
  • The classroom session will turn out a place of workshop

Who is doing it?abbac1391558226a5a901a4806413787

  • A number of teachers have incorporated this instructional model in order to update themselves with the technology and learning.
  • A particularly successful example of a flipped class is in accounting at Penn State accommodates 1,300 students.

Why is important?

  • It is the best platform for the students to increase their ability to apply their learned knowledge and concepts in practical sessions.
  • The collaborative skills will really help the students to have an effective social interaction with their peers. This will lead to peer teaching
  • The teacher can easily identify the errors of the students and can guide, assist in one to one sessions.

What are the implications of The Flipped Classroom?

  • Students will shoulder a greater responsibility for learning
  • It gives ample time for the students to discuss, collaborate with each other
  • What the flip does particularly well is to bring about a distinctive shift in priorities‚ÄĒ from merely covering material to working toward mastery of it.download

WANT TO BECOME AN ENGLISH TEACHER?

Image result for funny clip art an English teacher

Here you go…

A teacher is a boon to the life of students. Teachers or the educators hold a huge responsibility to shape and mold the life of future citizens. So any teacher who teaches the learners should be capable of guiding the learners in an appropriate way.    Hence One should possess certain competencies and skills before they deliver any lecture.  I, as an English student teacher, came across certain competencies for English teacher.

You can refer the following competencies  to update yourself:

1.Languages in art: A teacher should know that language is an art of articulation and expression.  The beauty of language and literature can be felt only when it is said from the bottom of the heart. The statement which is made by a teacher should make some sense to the students and it should connect to the emotions and feelings of the learner.  In my opinion, any language teacher for the matter should make an attempt to connect with the mother tongue of the student when the concert is understood in the mother tongue the learner can easily translate.  So the teacher should feel the art of language.
2.Fluency:   Fluency is something that is an  English language teacher should be capable of.  The flow of words will indicate one’s  over the content. As a facilitator, an English teacher should be capable of simplifying the complex concepts instead of using exuberant words.  Though fluency comes from a lot of reading if An English language teacher is fluent enough no one can ever defeat him or her.
3.Providing opportunities to speak:  The Crux of an English teacher lies in making the students share their knowledge.   The teaching of an English teacher should enable the students to communicate and Allow them to broaden their horizon. As an English teacher, you Should corporate to understand their perception & should give a platform to exhibit their thoughts in written form too.
4.Communication skills: These still are the backbone of an English teacher. Any teacher should be able to communicate speak and write properly so that these skills are molded in the future generation, parents And other stakeholders in the educational system.
5.Patience:  This is the basic requirement Of an English teacher. Since he or she is an English teacher one should be more patient enough to deal with the different learning styles and Capabilities of the learners.  It adds on when they have to connect with the mother tongue of the students in order to make them understand the concepts.  To listen to one’s feelings, thoughts ideas, emotions and perceptions one should be patient enough to understand and perceive.  So patience is the key to success for English teacher.
6.Creativity: Language is an art of expression an English teacher should be capable to bring out the hidden talent among the students in the form of poetry short stories creative writing, etc.  Teaching poetry requires a lot of Creative power to understand the different perceptions, views, and notions. Language is the best forum with students can bring out their inner self.
These are the different competencies required for English teacher so if you want to become an English teacher please  incorporate the above skills and you will get your way

Good luck to the upcoming English teachers..
