  4. 4. My School
  5. 5. My Community The community in which I work is very well known for their hard work. The majority of the men work as fishermen and women stay home to take care of their children. Many of them have not finished high school. They live in low income housing. They do try to help their kids to do good in school.
  6. 6. My Philosophy • I do believe that all students have the capacity to learn using their multiple intelligences. So I provide multiple strategies of teaching so each students can have the opportunity to learn in their own individual way.
  7. 7. Learning Theory • The theory of multiple intelligences proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983. Gardner's theory argues that intelligence, particularly as it is traditionally defined, does not sufficiently encompass the wide variety of abilities humans display.
  8. 8. Approach The Free-Writing Approach This approach stresses writing quantity rather than quality. Free writing on given topics with only minimal correction. The emphasis is on content and fluency rather than on accuracy and form.
  9. 9. Teaching Objective After reading and discussing the story My trip to the Beach, students will observe a picture, make a list of words related to it and write at least five sentences about the picture. W.3.4, W.3.5 This activity is for Third Grade Students Duration: One Day
