What I Know Now
That I Wish I Knew In the Beginning By Osman Khan M.Ed INED
Graduate students should use the resources available on campus such as the Writing center, which offers direct one-on-one writing assistance and work shops. They are open to answer special concerns and inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And a shout out goes to Owl Purdue, which provides free writing resources, APA guidelines and examples, and instructional resources... https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
Reread (Proof read) Everything Before Submission
Short Poem I Just Wrote Called "Spell Check"
you and your unforgiving staggered red lines
scatter our documents as we write our essays.
The lines that for me are streaks of blood
my own blood,
drive me to madness
until I fix
or “ignore” words,
& those funny names of authors
that I know
The problem with the red and the green grammar lines...
they are generated by a computer -
1's and zeros 10101010101010101
no cognitive abilities
Well, not for a few more years anyway
But, for now,
Am I trying to use “your” instead of “you’re,”
or “there” instead of “their” or “they’re?"
I have learned
if we rely too intently on Spell Check to save us from our woes,
and if we think
just because we have have zero red lines
and that we're not bleeding
on our documents
we're all set and error-free...
we're all entirely mistaken.
Chalk & Wire
Students should be aware of the resources available on the KSU Chalk & Wire page because it provides the assistance required to submit assignments and upload videos. http://bagwell.kennesaw.edu/bcoe/chalk-and-wire
Here's a quick start user guide https://ep.chalkandwire.com/ep2_kennesaw2/QuickPreview.aspx?u=guest&t=&cus=160&pageId=552289&uu=CMPDRz2NzhqPz2Jd5V6HAzY/YbK3jjE35AqOgkaD0FBj6IZbi0FYPhgug==q~qIcDEmRDTYYiinnz1ywGaSA==&urlId=109564777
Implications of Language Proficiency Levels on SWDs
Go Hand in Hand
I wish those graduate students in the M.Ed INED attaining the ESOL Endorsement were exposed to making content comprehensible to language learners sooner.
- Specialization of Content and Language Objectives Because It Helps ALL Students
- Providing Relevant Supports
- Progress Monitoring to Reflect Upon and Modify Strategies and Interventions
Building on and Borrowing From Previous Assignments
Cohort (Companionship and Assistance)
Awesome Research Skills
Scholarly Academic Resources/Peer-Reviewed Journals
ERIC - Education Resource Information Center
Academic Search Complete
Professional Development Connection
Google and Wikipedia can be useful because they serve as a launching pad.
The Power of Books
-Cherish assigned text from previous classes, and refrain from selling them back to the bookstore because they'll help you in future courses or realms of discourse.
For Those Interested in Publishing Research
I wish I would have had a better understanding of the process that is required for conducting research through KSU in Cobb County Schools,
