STUDENT PREPARATION STRATEGY: GETTING
THEM TO READ

Bridge-in: I start my class by turning on my computer, greet my students, and ask them
about their day before i proceed for any activity. I give my students journal assignment at
the end of class period to be discussed the next class period. I start by asking students
individually to share with us what he or she learnt and how that subject concept can be
applied on his or her daily live. My students are always very excited to share and they
look forward to sharing the subject concept, because it's part of the grade determination.

Objectives: The objectives are for the students to understand and apply the principles of
human communication including perception, verbal communication, nonverbal
communication, listening and audience analysis. More so, students to understand how to
establish and maintain relationships through the use of interpersonal communication, and
to recognize how to communicate within diverse or multicultural environments.

Pre - assessment: I ask my students questions at the end of lectures to find out whether
they understand what i have lectured or not. So, this will enable me to know what to do
next.

Participatory Learning: Each student will be assigned to a group to research a specific
area of human communication, then each group will designate a topic, perform research
and present to the class.

Post - assessment: I do this step often to make sure students are in the right direction.

Summary: Students will share the general and specific purposes of choosing their
research topics.

ACP Reflective Essay

Sincerely, I am very glad that I was given the privilege to partake in this Adjunct Certification
Program, because it has enhanced my academic beliefs and my teaching values positively
and more purposeful. The knowledge I have acquired during the short period of this program
cannot be quantified to anything. More so, I have gained multiple insights such as BOPPPS
Lesson, Bloom’s Taxonomy that will help me to divide the way students learn into different
domains, planning and giving instructions to students in class room. I have also, gained
more insights in rubrics in terms of grading. Words may not actually be enough to express
how much knowledge, values, and insight I have acquired during this period of the ACP.

More so, as an educator, I have started incorporating the knowledge I gained from the ACP
into my class. The word bridge, I never understood what it actually signifies, this program
has enlightened me more about bridge, I start my class by engaging students in activities
that everybody in the room will participate and fill excited to continuing participating without
being drained. I believe that what I have gained in the course of this program will enhance
my students learning optimistically.

Additionally, ACP has made me a more effective instructor, by broadening my knowledge,
enhancing my teaching abilities, made me to realize my deficiencies, and has helped me to
meet up with the students expectations. This program is imperative to me as an instructor.
Doing the right thing in the classroom and with students are very vital both for the students
and the instructor. My teaching strategies have positively changed since I have started
Adjunct Certification Program. It has been awesome and students are very pleased with me.

More so, ACP, has positively impacted the way I think and act in the classroom. It makes me
to be enthusiastic towards teaching. ACP, has clearly taught me the word BOPPPS Lesson
which I had never knew before. I have known now that it signifies Bridge in, Learning
Objective, Pre Test, Participatory learning, Post Test and Summary. These have actually
helped me to make students understand the concept of the subject matter and able to apply
to their personal lives and professional career. BOPPPS lesson has also helped me to pre-
assessed students learning abilities, finding out whether they learnt or understood what I
have taught or not. Participatory learning helps me to assign students in group project work
where everyone in the group will participate and present a detail of the summary of the
subject matter and students will discuss how the subject matter applies to our current time.

More importantly, ACP has positively made me a more effective instructor, by helping me to
know how to apply different kinds of Instructional Technology Tour Notes in my class room
such as Plickers, simple tool that helps me collect real time formative assessment data
without the need for student device. Also, Nearpod App allows students to view and interact
with my lesson on their phone. All of these instructional technological devices enhance
students learning, I learnt how to apply those devices by attending ACP. These features have
made me more effective instructor.

Finally, my suggestions for further professional development opportunities, first and
foremost, I must commend and thank the organizers of Adjunct Certification Programs for
their great and awesome work. Also, the program was coherent and comprehensive. I am
very glad that I was accepted into ACP. I encourage ACP organizers to continuing doing the
great work. I want to also thank Dr. LaSalle, for his excellent job. Once again, thank you all.
