'Goals for Students\r'
' destructions for students So what is it that we motivation students to gain from a k-12 science pedagogics? What ar the goals we should constantly work to farm in students? Considering that rote memorization of scientific ideas leads to little judgement, I sacrifice identified ten goals for students that focus on life discipline skills, and other traits that lead be valu satisfactory to them in the future, no matter their flight choice. Each goal below is accompanied by much specific explanations of what I might date students doing who meet that goal. I hope whatever your goals ar for your students, you have thought ab away them extensively.\r\nWe all want great things for our students, but if we do not have well articulated goals, our efforts pass on not be focused. I allow post later on how we can consistently work to promote the goals below. pupil Goal 1) learners volition depict full of life thinking. A student who demonstrates critical thinking leave alone nurse their viewpoint using relevant evidence. Students impart get to dubietys when modernistic instruction does not agree with their accepted understanding, and matter for further sources of evidence to support the forward-looking idea if necessary.\r\nStudents volition not accept blindly new information and be go outing to question teachers, texts and other sources of information. A student who is capable of critical thinking should be able to solve paradoxs in a stepwise sequence, and be able to revisal the sequence if necessary. Student Goal 2) Students ordain demonstrate a deep understanding of case and be able to apply this experience to paradoxs in and out of the kinspersonroom. Students with a deep understanding of the content forget be able to clearly articulate that understanding by citing relevant evidence and sources when confronted with a question.\r\nStudents result be able to make connections between discordant concepts and apply multiple concepts t o a single problem when needed. Students allow be aw are of resources to find information regarding content, and use much(prenominal) resources when necessary. Students testament use their knowledge of content when approaching a relevant problem and willing be able to recognize which concepts are of value for specific situations. Student Goal 3) Students will demonstrate creativity and curiosity. Students who are creative will propose original ways to approach or solve problems.\r\nStudents will involve thought-provoking questions during line discussion, and try to answer questions by piecing together prior knowledge. Students who are curious will come up with possible investigations and ask questions seeking explanation of ideas during class discussions. Students will develop their profess ways to relieve their ideas and look for evidence that supports their ideas. Student Goal 4) Students will demonstrate respect. Students will not interrupt others during discussions. Stu dents will hark to other ideas and come up to them as valid.\r\nStudents will discuss positive aspects of ideas they do not unavoidably agree with; this garters them to understand both sides of an issue, and makes them a wear critical thinker. Students will follow classroom rules, and treat school property as though it were their own. feed area will be kept overbold and students will remind each other of classroom rules. Each student will work cohesively with a team and treat themselves as part of that team. Student Goal 5) Students will be responsible and painstaking members of communities.\r\nStudents will address global problems concerning the environment, energy needs, benevolent needs, social concerns and others. Students will seek out remedies to such problems and debate which ideas offer the most effective solutions. Students will propose possible measures to be taken as citizens when a problem is found. Student Goal 6) Students will exhibit confidence. Students who e xhibit confidence will be willing to participate in class, and willing to reserve ideas, even if they are unsure of the ideaÃ¢â¬â¢s worth. These students will be willing to try new procedures and willing to try again when they fail.\r\nStudents will ask the teacher to clarify when they do not fully understand, and be willing to look for additional help if needed. Student Goal 7) Students will set goals and rate their own learning and progress. Students will set true to life(predicate) goals for the semester, quarter, unit, and week. As weeks go by, students will become relegate at setting goals they are capable of achieving. Students will revise goals as needed. Students will use a journal to track their progress and to assess their own understanding. Students will seek ways to express their learning and check for understanding of new concepts.\r\nStudent Goal 8 ) Students will be active in their own learning. Students will look for further resources when they retrieve they do not yet fully understand. Students will ask questions in class to clarify points of confusion. Students will create models to explain their ideas. Active learners will look into topics of interest beyond the classroom. Students will bring concerns close to understanding to class discussions, and also cite how real material applies elsewhere, besides the classroom. Student Goal 9) Students will use communication and cooperation skills effectively.\r\nStudents will be able to communicate clearly in large groups as well as one on one. Students will be able to communicate ideas succinctly through written language. Students will use correct linguistic communication where appropriate. Students will use correct grammar and punctuation. Students will tilten to other ideas and maintain eye contact during communion and debates, and will speak in a venerating manner during such debates and discussions. Students who are able to work are willing to let others do their fair share as wel l as rend their own weight in a group.\r\nStudents will value all suggestions of group members equally. Students will begin to resolve problems within their group before communicate the teacher. Student Goal 10) Students will understand the character of knowledge. Students will partake in discussions about the temper of knowledge and compare different ways of knowing. Students will apply principles of the nature of knowledge to different content areas. Epistemological discussions with students can help them become more reflective concerning their own thinking.\r\nBy reflecting on what it bureau to know whateverthing in diverse areas, students will let out understand how to learn effectively. I hope these goals are lofty, children deserve no less than our highest expectations. Assessing these goals is difficult, but by carefully designing lessons and providing important experiences for students, we can promote these goals Ã¢â¬ however, like with anything, they must carry the goals to fruition. IÃ¢â¬â¢m sure some will tell me IÃ¢â¬â¢m an idealist with a goal list like that, so I leave you with some John LennonÃ¢â¬â¢s Imagine:\r\n'
