Name: Heather TschoepeDate: 4/28/2020Megan Uzick 3rd Grade Language Arts 1. Notice that Mrs. Uzick has procedures in place to ensure that she gives every student the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge and share their thoughts. She numbers students and then calls on even or odd numbers. This also reinforces the math concept of even/odd that 3rd graders are still learning. This is a very unique way of calling on students and involving learning at the same time. 2. Reflecting on the merits of the "mirror reading" strategy Mrs. Uzick is demonstrating. This is part of how the students will learn. With her saying it and then the students this allows those that learn differently to understand and comprehend what she is saying. 3. Mirror reading helps to maintain student engagement, learn to read with inflection and feeling,and helps with fluency. It's part of the repetition during the lesson that helps them to understand the fluency of reading. 4. Not only is Mrs. Uzick asks students to work at the analysis level of Blooms to answer her question, but then she asks a follow up question that continues to challenge the students to dig deeper. She is also using a different part of the bloom taxonomy method. She is helping them understand the words and the meanings. 5. How did Mrs. Uzick encourage students to communicate using academic language? Reflect on this strategy. She asks the students if it's fiction, how it is fiction, knowing the english terminology. She asks those students to explain what those words mean and they do it together.She has them partner up and discuss ideas or themes that are relatable to real life from the poem.
