Beginner's lesson_Mr. Kawarada
[What motivated you to enter the Department of Elementary Education?] ]
When I was a junior high school student, my science teacher taught me enthusiastically, using projectors and printouts to make the lessons interesting.That experience made me fall in love with science, and I wanted to share the joy and excitement of learning with as many children as possible.
[What did you learn? ]
In the "Tateyama Project", which is carried out in collaboration with the Tateyama City Board of Education, we planned and managed the lessons ourselves from scratch.I realized the fun and difficulty of teaching and learned the importance of preparing for various things in advance.Taking advantage of this experience, I began to research teaching materials and create teaching plans while anticipating the questions, doubts, and remarks that students would make from the stage of class preparation, and thinking about how to respond.
[What do you want to work on from now on? ]
"Classroom management" is an extremely important duty of teachers that forms the basis of children's lives and learning, so we will proceed with research in seminars.In addition, I would like to think about how to connect theory and practice in classes that are conscious of educational sites, such as "Theory and methods of student/career guidance and class management," through observation and practical training at schools. .
[Which class left an impression on you?] ]
It is a "teaching method for comprehensive study time".In order to find out how the children explore things, I put myself in the position of the children and set tasks and conducted fieldwork to gather information.By working from the children's point of view, I was able to understand how the teacher's words were being conveyed, and I was able to notice points where group activities could be developed successfully.
