Reflection


I really like this course, this course is not easy for me because English is the Second foreign language for me. Listening still can be good for me, but writing and speaking are very difficult.So I worked very hard to learn in this lesson, I spent a lot of time for learning.
In this semester, I learned to use technology, such as: how to create a bloger. For me, Flickr, VoiceThread, I've never contacted with them. I am very pleased to get to know them.
I think my English has improved, because this semester I learned a lot of new words. I have a deeper understanding of how to do a good teacher now.

In my opinion, PowerPoint has many advantages.
When we use PowerPoint, we make information in the form of multi-media.With this multi-media,we can use the format of text, image, table, animation, music, film and television, students will be more interest in learning.
When we use PowerPoint, the presentation of information is quick and convenient. Teachers can quickly and easily render the teaching content just by clicking a mouse.We can save a lot of time to write on the blackboard.
With PowerPoint, information can be saved and can be reused.So information is easy to copy and to diffuse.
But,when we use this software,we should keep PowerPoint bold and simple, make text to a minimum and don't use the gimmicky options. For this point, I agree with the video.

My story ---- A clever fox!


A clever fox!

The wolf wanted to eat the fox, but it not easy to catch him. 


    One day the wolf said to the rabbit, I will go homme and I will lie in the bed. And you, you should tell the fox that I was dead.  When he comes to look me, you should chut the dor, and I will jump up and catch him. If you don't do that, I will eat you!"

  So the rabbit went to the fox's house and knocked at the door. 
"Who is it?" asked the fox. "It's the rabbit. I've come to tell you that the wolf is dead." Then he went away.
    The the fox went to the wolf's house. He looked in through the window and saw the wolf lying in the bed with his eyes closed. He thought, "Is the wolf really dead or is he pretending be dead? If he is not dead, he'll catch me when I go near him." so he said, "the rabbit says that the wolf is dead. But he doesn't look like the dead  wolf. The mouth of the dead wolf is always open." When the wolf hear this, he thought, "I'll show him that I'm dead." So he opened his mouth.
    The fox knew that the wolf isn't dead, and he ran as quickly as he could.

The Anatomy of a Great Teacher


The video is selected from Emory University.Art of Teaching: Best Practices from a Master EducatorTaught By Professor Patrick N. Allitt, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley,Lecture 23. The Anatomy of a Great TeacherTime:30:03

Summarization:

The Great Teacher have often some common characters. They love teaching, they love their job, they think it is more a vacation than a job ; they are enthusiasts for communicating what they know to their students, they are happy to be in with their students, they enjoy to be with their students. A good education is when students and teacher learn things from each other, so the Great Teacher learn from what's happening in the classroom.

According to this video, the Great Teacher scrutinize their teaching work, watche video of themselves,and criticize themselves frankly and continuously.They also watch other teachers and exchange candid judgments about what they are doing well and poorly.

The education is a fashion,so the Great Teacher adopt more effective techniques, they treat new theories with skepticism. They read a lot of books on teaching and learning and assimilate it, without losing faith in their particular style of teaching. They also study books in their field and look for ways to transform important developments within their field into material that their students can truly grasp.

In my opinion, the Great Teacher are not the persons who have the most important mass of knowledge , they are the persons who help the student to learn more. They like to communicate with students, they give the motivation and the hope to their students.

Stroy for lagh


Three Turtles
Three turtles decided to have a cup of coffee. Just as they got into the cafe, it started to rain.
The biggest turtle said to the smallest one, " Go home and get the umbrella."
The little turtle replied, "I will, if you don't drink my offee."
"We won't," the other two promised.
Two years later the big turtle said to the middle turtle, "Well, I guess he isn't coming back, so we might as well drink his coffee."
Just then a voice called from outside the door, "If you do, I won't go."
