Name: Heather Tschoepe Date: 5/11/2020 Jeremy Kiesler High School Biology 1. Listen to the energy and excitement Mr. Kiesler has with his class. Teachers with a passion for their content area are more likely to engage students and foster interest in the subject. His energy is contagious and fun. 2. Mr. Kiesler recognizes that his content area introduces a lot of vocabulary that is unique and unfamiliar to his students. To many students, it can be similar to learning a foreign language. By helping students to break down the words into roots, he is providing them with a skill they can forever use when they encounter unfamiliar words. Consider the importance of this skill in your own content area. How might you plan to introduce unfamiliar vocabulary? Reflect. Breaking up the words into the root word helps the students understand where it comes from. He is doing it like it would be done in ELAR. 3. Notice the resources Mr. Kiesler has on his board for students to refer to. A daily agenda, daily objective, classroom expectations, weekly homework and a word wall are all displayed prominently in the classroom. These help students stay organized and know what to expect during their time in Mr. Kiesler's class. Why is this important to having a well-managed classroom? Reflect.
