Building confidence in stem presentation

      

Building Confidence   in STEM Presentation

The brain grows at an amazing rate during development, which makes it so important that we provide young children with the best environment to learn and grow. Too much abstract thinking at a young age could possibly overwhelm a child. It is important to understand how the brain functions at each developmental milestone.

For this assignment, use the topic materials and your own research to create a 15-20 slide digital presentation that can be used during an open house geared toward families of children grades K-3.  Be sure to include a title slide, reference slide, and presenter notes.

Your presentation needs to include the following:

· Brain development at each stage in relation to how children learn.

· The significance of constructivism for meaningful learning during the developmental stages of young children.

· The importance of introducing STEM at an early age.

· At least 2-3 family resources about the importance of supporting inquiry and exploration in early childhood.

Support your presentation with 2-3 scholarly resources.

In addition to your presentation, write a 100-250 word reflection in which you discuss your self-confidence as it pertains to STEM education. Explain how you will incorporate STEM concepts into your future classroom. Discuss the significance of professional lifelong learning, especially subjects in the STEM field.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

  

Clinical Field   Experience A: Math Lessons

Select an inclusive K-3 early childhood site where you will complete the field experience required for this course.  During the remaining weeks of your clinical field experience you will be working with a small group of students identified by your mentor teacher to help differentiate your mentor teacher’s lesson.  If you have permission from your mentor, you will also be asked to implement a lesson or mini-lesson to the class or small group in different areas of STEM. 

For this field experience, observe the classroom focusing on math, if possible. If not, observe another STEM area (science, engineering, or technology). Additionally, interview your mentor teacher and include the following questions:

· What is your teaching philosophy for math instruction?

· How do you provide a focus on hands-on practice and thinking mathematically?

· In what way would you embed mathematics learning opportunities in the learning environment, as well as beyond the classroom?

· What tools and resources (including technology) do you use to allow exploration and enhance conceptual understanding?

· How do you incorporate communication as part of thinking mathematically?

· How do you ensure an equal learning opportunity for all students, including those with exceptionalities?

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect on the interview, including your discussion of strategies and specific examples of hands-on STEM lessons. Discuss how the lesson promoted problem-solving and critical thinking skills for students. Explain how the mentor teacher prompted the importance of communication as part of thinking mathematically. Discuss how the strategies used promote discussion, motivation, and engagement. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.

Support your reflection with 1-2 scholarly resources.

In addition to the above observations, interview, and reflection for this topic, speak with your mentor teacher about assisting during an upcoming science lesson or activity. This will help you prepare for the Topic 3 assignment. With your mentor teacher, identify a small group of students who would benefit from differentiation and engagement strategies during the upcoming science lesson or activity.   

Once you have identified the lesson and group you will be assisting with, continue to work with your mentor teacher on the following:

· Identify areas of strengths and potential improvement for the small group.

· Identify which state standards and learning objectives the lesson is focused on.

· Based on the lesson and the group’s characteristics, develop and share with your mentor teacher two differentiation and engagement strategies to utilize during the upcoming lesson or activity, making adjustments where needed.

· Prepare to utilize the identified strategies with the small group during the agreed upon science lesson or activity.

Spend any remaining field experience hours for this topic observing and/or assisting your mentor teacher with instructional tasks in the classroom.

Submit your observation notes, interview notes, and reflection as one deliverable.  

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

Document the locations and hours you spend in the field on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.

  

Math – Reasoning or   Problem Solving Lesson Plan

Math is a strong focus in the STEM curriculum.  Education is always changing and the focus of STEM education is increasing across all grade levels. It is important for us as educators to set a mathematical foundation at an early age to inspire student’s interest in math and STEM.

Develop a math lesson plan for your field experience classroom using the “Class Profile” and the “COE Lesson Plan Template.” Begin by selecting a K-3 standard and learning outcomes from your state’s math standards for that grade level.  It is highly recommended that you select the same grade level as your practicum classroom and continue to use that grade throughout the course.

Your lesson plan should be completed in its entirety, with a focus on:

· Mathematical instructional practices with learning progression.

· Problem solving or reasoning techniques that promote critical and creative thinking.

· How the students will communicate their thinking.

· Incorporate the use technology.

· As appropriate, concepts discussed with your mentor teacher during the field experience for this topic.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

Film essay paper one | English homework help

 

There are Two Papers assigned

General Instructions

For each of the two papers, you will be responsible for watching a film and write a 3 to 5 page essay in which you respond to prompts which will be provided for each paper (this means at least 3 pages including the “My Criteria for Quality in Film” page and no longer than 5 pages). These assignments are reaction papers, not plot summaries or research papers. The key element here is that you will be telling the instructor what you have to say about the film, not what others have said.

In a 100-level course, you would perhaps be asked to write about what you saw on the screen. In a 200-level course, you would be asked to say what you think about what you saw. In this 300-level course, you are expected to explain why you think the way you do about the film, and to justify your explanation (using references to subjects found in the weekly content in the LEO classroom.

You will be responsible for turning in these assignments to the proper assignment folder in LEO.

Putting these assignments off until the last possible moment probably will not work very well. Each of them requires you to view an additional film besides the ones you will be watching for the week’s discussion, so you should be sure to leave yourself enough time to view the necessary film, think about it, write a first draft, and then edit and revise.

Part of your responsibility in this course is to make any and all arrangements necessary to allow you to view the films, think and write about them, and turn your assignments in by their respective due dates. Some of the films you watch may be available for streaming via Netflix or another online content provider; others may be available for checkout from your local public library, while others may need to be rented.

Be sure to spell the names of directors, actors, screenwriters, and other people correctly (this can cause “points” to be taken off of the final grade for that paper). Any name that is not listed in the credits that begin or end the film is a name you do not need to mention.

The papers will be graded based on such elements as evidence that you are reading and viewing the material the course content, references and comparisons to other films you have seen (in or out of class and throughout your lifetime as a movie watcher), and especially to films you have previously written about; use of the film vocabulary introduced in class; clear presentation of your opinions; reasonable explanations and justifications to support those opinions; and college-level writing skills (spelling, punctuation, and grammar). Other criteria will be presented to you as appropriate.

You are better off watching these films on the largest possible screen, and at the highest possible resolution.

Paper OneAssignment for Film One (F1)

Part 1: View a feature film made between 1940 – 1970 you have not seen before (or will see later in this class) by a great director. If you would like to see an American film, consider seeing something directed by Frank Capra, George Cukor, John Ford, George Stevens, Preston Sturges, Billy Wilder, or William Wyler. If you would like to try a foreign film, consider Ingmar Bergman (Swedish), Luis Buñuel (Spanish), Claude Chabrol (French), Federico Fellini (Italian), Akira Kurosawa (Japanese), Lina Wertmuller (German) or the British team known as “The Archers” made up of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. These are suggestions, but not a comprehensive list of possibilities. For a much more extensive list, you might want to visit http://www.filmsite.org/directors.html. (Note that many directors were active both before and after 1970. Make sure you see a pre-1970 film, make sure it’s a film you have not seen before, and make sure it is a feature. Don’t, for example, see Buñuel’s UN CHIEN ANDALOU, which is a short, not a feature.)

Comment on the specific film you saw. Pay particular attention to the camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (this can include the music). What did you like, and what did you dislike, about what you saw? Why do you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Is the film a good film, or is it not? (Note: This is not the same question as whether or not you liked it. It is entirely possible to like a film that you are aware is not very good.) You should comment on the film both as a representative of its genre and as a film.

Part 2: Now that you have commented on the specific film you viewed, see if you can draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors or actresses. For example let us say you watched the 2012 film Prometheus (no this is a not a film you can watch for this paper). Did you like Ridley Scott as a filmmaker? Did you like Michael Fassbender in the roll of an emotionless android? Why, or why not? Be sure to comment on the overall impression you had of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period. Remember, this is not a research paper. I am interested in what you have to say, not in what you can learn by reading up on the film or the filmmaker.

Part 3: On a separate page, insert the heading “My Criteria for Quality in Film.” Under that heading, use your comments about this film and its filmmaker as guidelines toward proposing five general statements indicative of your personal taste in movies. These statements should be numbered (1) through (4), and they should be written as complete sentences or a short paragraph. It might be useful to introduce each statement with such language as “Excellent movies feature,” or “A movie is more likely to be good if,” or “A characteristic of high-quality cinema is.” (For example, if you commented in the body of your essay that you liked the acting because it was realistic and you liked the script because it had a happy ending, you could propose these two statements as criteria for quality: “(1) Excellent movies feature realistic acting. (2) A movie is more likely to be good if it ends happily.” Do not just put something like “Good movies feature good acting.” The point here is for you to think about—and then explain—what such quality words as good, excellent, and effective actually mean. Be sure to save your “My Criteria” page to your hard drive—you will be adding more items to this list and resubmitting an expanded version of it with for the second paper later in this course.

Assignment for Film Two

Part 1: View a feature film made between 1970 – 2000 you have not seen before (or will see later in this class) by a great director or featuring a great actor or actress.

Just as you did in the first paper, comment on the specific film you saw. Pay particular attention to the screenplay, camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (this can include the music). You may also address special effects. Again, as you did in the first paper, talk about what you like, and what you dislike, about what you saw? Why do you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Is the film a good film, or is it not?

Part 2: Now that you have commented on the specific film you viewed, see if you can draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors or actresses. Be sure to comment on the overall impression you had of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period. Remember, this is not a research paper. I am interested in what you have to say, not in what you can learn by reading up on the film or the filmmaker.

Part 3: Go back to the “My Criteria for Quality in Film” page. Based on your viewing of this week’s film, add Five new general conclusions. These statements should be numbered (6) through (10). Be sure to include entire page, including all of your previous criteria statements.
