Transcript of Language Arts Methods

Innovations Language Arts Newsletter Thematic Unit Adventures in Reading Adventures in Reading is the Google Site that I have created. This site will tell you a little bit about me and my adventures in teaching and in reading. There are also links to various assignments that I have completed in class as well as a teacher resource page with links to helpful websites.
http://sites.google.com/site/adventuresinreading612/ My thematic unit is based on Women's History. The unit is created for middle school/early high school age students and details the struggles of women in the past. The unit also discusses how women gained their freedom and rights in the United States. Throughout the course of the semester I have put a lot of hard work into my innovations. I have included these on my Google page as well. I really enjoyed dipping into the world of middle school and high school. I think it has made me grow as a teacher. It took some research and a lot of time but hopefully my innovations will be able to help out fellow teachers as well as students. I created a page about writing and a page about vocabulary. Both sites contain helpful tips on how to teach the subject as well as activities that can go along with it. I created a. online book club that students can use to stay in touch with a book they are reading as well as make suggestions for future reading. The last site I created is a poetry web quest. My web quest takes students on a journey of learning poetry through music.

Welcome to Language Arts K-12 This semester was definately an adventure for me. I think that having to complete a lot of the projects really forced me to step out of my comfort zone. Overall, I have learned a lot about myself and my abilities as a teacher.

As with many other classes, we had to create a website to share a little bit about ourselves and our teaching styles/beliefs. I feel like I have grown the most in my knowledge and ability to use technology in the classroom. My favorite project was creating my innovations. I know that this project challenged me more so than most other projects have throughout my graduate experience. Even though this was a difficult assignment for me, I liked being able to step outside of my kindergarten box and think on an adolescent level. Another project that allowed me to think on an adolescent level was creating a thematic unit. I chose Women's History as my theme because it was something that always interested me and I thought that I could apply that interest to teaching the unit (if I ever have the chance). I liked this project because it let me use creative practices and assignments to expose students to an important event and time period in our country's history. As teachers, we are often looking for suggestions on how to make our teaching just a little bit better. Through reading our textbook, Conversations written by Regie Routman, I learned a lot of new strategies and ideas that I would love to put into practice in my school. I also enjoyed reading Routman's ideas for classroom design and staff development. I have included all of these ideas and strategies in my Language Arts Newsletter. My language arts newsletter has a lot of information that I have gathered through my readings. This newsletter contains several tips on how to help students succeed in language arts and a few helpful hints for staff development.
