Pros: interaction with other staff members during the break to exchange ideas, etc., diversity, teamwork
Cons: insufficient time in the day to assist students who have other challenges (hard-of hearing, visual difficulties, social issues, handicapped, etc.).
Productive and fun workplace with a student body and staff of diverse cultures.
A typical day at work starts at ~9:15 or sooner when I arrive for my class that starts at 9:30 a.m.I greet my students as they enter the classroom. After students sign in, the lesson starts with a review from the previous days lessons. About 15-30 minutes is spent reviewing – more... this. A quick quiz to recap the content.
The next 30-45 minutes is spent reading a book. I read aloud and then ask the students to repeat after me. We complete the reading and then I write on the board the reading lesson. We repeat the reading by me pointing to the board as we do so. Students then copy the notes. A quick True/ False quiz is given. We sometimes role-play and/or relate the story to their everday life.
There is a 20 minutes break. After the break, students will be encouraged to read with a partner and role-play. We play a bingo game or vocabulary (fill-in-the-blank) to assess students understanding. The class ends with students recapping the lesson for the day. – less
