During the first week of STEAM class we learned about rap and it's involvement with science by looking at the example of B.O.B. The lyrics triggers the listeners to think about what is being said and the reasons behind the words. We also looked at the art of freestyling. Freestyling is when you are speaking based on your prior knowledge about concepts. It is similar to public speaking in a way that you say what you know.

The 7 C's of Effective Teaching:
Challenging: pressing for effort and rigor
Controlling: promoting cooperation and peer support
Consolidating: connecting and integrating ideas to support learning
Clarifying: Ideas and lessons making success seem feasible
Conferring: eliciting students' feedback and respecting their ideas
Captivating: making learning interesting and relevant
Caring: nurturing productive relationships
Each one of the seven C's is an important addition into the classroom. From past research I found that challenging the students helps them with critical thinking and improving their abilities. The kind of controlling I would like to incorporate into my classroom is the kind that encourages students to give their all and cooperation into every class. I support students to consolidate by sharing their ideas to one another because each individual has their own point of view. Clarification is important in order to get 100% participation from everyone which is why I plan on urging my students to ask questions when they are confused or not understanding. I think that conferring is important in a classroom because it shows students that what they have to say is important. It is extremely important to captivate students when learning because this makes them intrigued to learn more and actually pay attention to what they are learning. Caring about students is the number one importance of being a teacher; by showing kids that you care it assists with their future relationships. The whole reason for teaching is to pass knowledge upon kids and ensure their bright and successful future.
