Goal

To facilitate learning as best as I can for my students. 

 

What will be done with my students

Over the past year, I have noticed that my Adult Education students are struggling with the new GED test. There are four main subject areas on the test and students seem to be having difficulty with the high vocabulary as well as the increased math skills that are needed.

I plan to create a binder for each student. These binders will be re-usable and will stay in the classroom. Once a student graduates, I will use the binder with a new student. These binders will have section dividers as well. One section for math, one for reading/language arts, one for science and one for social studies.

I have a direct lesson every day in my classroom and what I would like to see happen would benefit my students immensely. When the lesson is about to start, each student will grab their binder and take notes. My lessons always deal with math concepts, but I always add in vocabulary from the other subjects.

 

 

Benefits to my students

By having the students take notes, they are creating their own glossary of vocabulary for every subject. According to brain research, a brain needs to see something at least 28 times to learn it. By them taking notes during a lesson, they are hearing it and writing it. By keeping the binder in the classroom, I know it will not be lost. They will have these notes to review every day that they are enrolled in my classroom.  

 

Describe the Students

I have students who range in age from 16 to 24 years old. Many of my students are in the mid range of performance level and the majority of them struggle with higher vocabulary.
