Storyboard Text

  • GRAMMAR PHONICS READING
  • I think you need to be placed in special education classes. You are in the lowest reading group, you did poorly on your STAR testing, and you can't even finish a simple worksheet!
  • Sob!!
  • She's mean!
  • OFFICE Principal Nice
  • Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela
  • When you Enter this room Learning is fun and Cooperation is expected. Our positive attitude and Mutual respect are part of Everything we do and say!
  • Today is a great day to have a great day!
  • Quiero mucho a mi nueva maestra!
  • Miguel was in Mrs. Mason's 4th grade class. In her class, students studied grammar rules and practiced accurate oral reading of basal reader selections during language arts.
  • "Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else." -Sydney Gurewitz Clemens
  • Miguel's parents knew that their son did not need special education services, so they held a meeting with the principal and asked if she could give Miguel another chance in 5th grade. The principal agreed to allow Miguel to stay in regular classes.
  • Test him and you'll see what a failure he is!
  • Miguel will do great! I believe in him! He is such a smart young man!
  • Miguel is now in the 5th grade. His teacher is Miss Picazo. She likes to conduct her class differently than Mrs. Mason would. She engages the children in lots of reading, writing, and group projects.
  • Mrs. Mason and Miss Picazo had two distinct teaching methods. While Mrs. Mason focused on grammar and accurate decoding of texts, this approach did not provide Miguel with comprehensible input. On the other hand, Miss Picazo's out-of-the-box activities made the English input comprehensible for Miguel. Because of Miss Picazo's style, Miguel acquired much English in a short period of time and his overall proficiency greatly increased.
  • Miss Picazo does not use the basal readers or worksheets, instead she teaches literature by using drama, art and music. In just one semester, Miguel's English has improved and has become enthusiastic in reading and writing in English.
  • Mrs. Mason became upset that Miguel had not been put into special education, and insisted he be tested with the basal reader tests. Despite the fact that he had not been working with the readers, Miguel's results showed a 2-year gain.
  • THE END
