It is important to perform multiple assessments for students and track their improvement for concepts they are struggling with to see whether changes in how the information is being relayed need to be made or whether the student needs additional instruction outside of the regular class meeting time. The data collected in the response to intervention process is extremely important because rather than saying this student improved or this student still needs work on certain concepts, it can show you exactly which students are struggling and to what degree, and then it will help teachers within their intervention plan to assess whether the percentage of understanding for the student goes up or down throughout the assessment period. Having hard numbers to relate back to especially over a longer period of time is more effective in helping the teachers modify or adjust the plan to help the students show growth in their
Communication with students I chose this criterion because teachers communicate with students for several independent, but related, purposes: they convey that teaching and learning are purposeful activities; they make that purpose clear to students, and they provide clear directions for classroom activities so that students know what to do; when additional help is appropriate, teachers model these activities. ---One example of a good classroom practise is: In the course of a presentation of content, the teacher asks students, “Can anyone think of an example of that?” 2. Using Questioning and Discussion Techniques I chose this criterion because it is important that questioning and discussion be used as techniques to deepen student understanding rather than serve as recitation, or a verbal “quiz” and because high-quality questions encourage students to make connections among concepts or events previously believed to be unrelated and to arrive at new understandings of complex material.---One example of a good classroom practise is: The teacher poses a question, asking every student to write a brief response and then share it with a partner, before inviting a few to offer their ideas to the entire
Mind’s Eye strategy could be one of their best ways to solve this problem. This strategy can develop students visualization and improve students reading comprehension as the technique includes students memory and asking them to be more critical in giving their perception and prediction. According to Silver, Strong and Perini (2007) mind’s eye is a reading strategy that is used by the teacher to improve students critical skill of the words on the page into memorable images. When the students read about a text the students will combine their background knowledge with the information that is gotten in the text. In addition, Sejnost (2009) states that this strategy is started by the students who listen to the keywords which are mentioned by the teacher and then attempt to visualize what are they hearing by making pictures in their minds.
George Boeree: Personality Theories B. F. Skinner 2. Fritz Redl and William Wattenberg: Group life and classroom discipline Learners are encouraged to understand their behaviour and actions and to know that these differ between individuals. Supports self-control. Uses pleasant or unpleasant situations to modify behaviour. Classroom discipline refers to the efforts of a teacher to help students learn to conduct themselves in a responsible manner (Charles, 2011).
“The behavior of difficult-to-manage students can be improved through providing interesting lessons on topics of personal relevance that permit active involvement and lead to competencies students consider important” (Charles & Senter, 2005, p. 131). This statement summarizes perfectly the idea that when students are engaged and learning about topics that are meaningful to them, their world opens up and they begin to see a purpose in what they are doing. According to Trevor Muir, a teacher and author of The Epic Classroom, conflict can motivate students and develop a sense of curiosity (T. Muir, personal communication, February 20, 2018). When students are presented with a real world conflict, they become motivated to find a solution. Project-based
Cooperative learning model is an active process where students work in small teams/groups, each with students of different levels of ability, use a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Students have opportunities to actively participate in their learning, question and challenge each other, share and discuss their ideas, and adopt their learning. Ross and Smyth (1995) describe successful cooperative learning tasks as intellectually demanding, creative, open-ended, and involve higher order thinking tasks. In this model, it is essential to create a positive climate where interpersonal skills can be promoted so that positive emotions will be fostered among learners. Cooperative learning also helps the learners to feel empowered and respected to prepare them to face real
In the most general sense, it usually means encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to create more knowledge and then to reflect on and talk about what they are doing and how their understanding is changing. The teacher makes sure she understands the students' preexisting conceptions, and guides the activity to address them and then build on them. Dialogic teaching Dialogic teaching harnesses the power of talk to stimulate and extend students’ thinking, and advance their learning and understanding (Alexander 2010). The term ‘dialogic teaching’ is now in regular use but like all such terms means different things to different people. As developed by Robin Alexander since the early 2000s, dialogic teaching harnesses the power of talk to stimulate and extend students’ thinking and advance their learning and understanding.
These include goal setting, organizational skills, time management, and strategies to learn new things. They are precursors to learning, skills or ability sets that are important for students to learn any content area knowledge. These are often discussed in the context of executive functions. Executive functions impacts a student’s ability to socialize with their friends, converse with their teacher and other staff members, homework completion and simply getting to and from school. Researchers have found that when children exhibit executive function, they are able to learn more in the classroom, because they can focus on the teacher and their work.
The first reason listed by Jillian Mourning in her article is just that. Students are actively engaged in what they are doing when they are manipulating the technology to the desires of their teacher. A well designed lesson around the use of technology can use its inquisitive nature to help push student participation. Active engagement is what allows students to have their natural desires to know or learn something come from themselves. This internal drive will create lifelong learners and will lead to more engaging lessons in the future.
Abstract Flipped classrooms reverse the role of traditional teaching where in students gain exposure through learning material like videos, power point presentations and notes outside classroom and the class time is utilised for problem solving and discussions in order to master the concepts. Flipped classrooms encourage students to learn at their own pace releasing frustrations and undue burden on students to pace up. Those students who have to miss some classes do not lose the course content. It provides opportunity for active interactions among students outside class via an online course website , facilitates social learning and is successful in providing timely, accurate feedback required by instructor to keep track of class progress and render required help to students. The intellectually drilled-down personalised feedback reports of tests helps in identification of the weaker areas or concepts
