When teachers plan their lesson in a good way, they can provide their students with multi of resources that may help them a lot. With the help of raising questions, some guidance, flexibility, knowing how to stimulate the students and having their attention to participate will make the lesson perfect. Good teachers should make the lesson meaningful by using any possible mean to make the lesson easier and more interesting. They should prepare the methods in which they will explain the subject. If the material is not clear, an effective teacher can reproduce the material to suit his or her students (Moreno,
To apply formative assessment effectively in the classroom, teachers have to know about formative assessment principles so that they can optimize the opportunities for gathering evidence. In so doing, it helps improve students’ learning process. Black and William (1998a) “set out four main headings for formative assessment practice: sharing learning goals, questioning, self/ peer assessment and feedback”. o Sharing learning goals: teachers give students an opportunity to get involved in what they are learning through discussing and deciding the criteria for success, which they can then use to recognize proof of improvement. Hence, information about learning objectives as well as success criteria needs to be presented in clear, explicit language which students can understand.
In other words, formative assessment is used to assess students learning. I believe this the most effective way of assessing students because a teacher can modify teaching and learning activities to improve student's achievement in the process of
At school, teachers have to encourage students to take up extracurricular activities, as well as to excel in their studies. Hence, verbal ability, content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, certification status, ability to use a range of teaching strategies skillfully, and enthusiasm for the subject characterize more successful teachers. The effectiveness of teachers can be identified by different factors. Firstly, it is good to look at their performance at work, including what they do in classrooms and how much progress their students make on achievement tests. For instance, teachers can adopt various teaching
In classrooms, formative assessment refers to frequent, interactive assessments of student progress and understanding to identify learning needs and adjust teaching appropriately. Teachers using formative assessment approaches and techniques are better prepared to meet diverse students’ needs – through differentiation and adaptation of teaching to raise levels of student achievement and to achieve a greater equity of student outcomes. The principles of formative assessment may be applied at the school and policy levels, to identify areas for improvement and to promote effective and constructive cultures of evaluation throughout education systems. More consistent use of formative assessment throughout education systems may help stakeholders address the very barriers to its wider practice in classrooms. This overview shows how formative assessment promotes the goals of lifelong learning, including higher levels of student achievement, greater equity of student outcomes, and improved learning to learn skills.
USE QUESTIONING AND FEEDBACK TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE ASSESSMENT PROCESS UNIT 2, 6.4 LITERATURE REVIEW Harlen explains that there are two main reasons for assessing students: to help their learning and to report on what they have learned. He argues that researchers typically discuss these reasons as different purposes for assessment and “mistakenly as different kinds of assessments that are somehow opposed to one another” (Harlen, 2007b). How can they achieve the aim? When learners know and understand these principles, the quality of learning will improve. Sharing this information with my learners will promote ownership of the learning aims and a sense of shared responsibility between me the teacher and learner to achieve those aims.
Introduction Enhancing learning for students involves more than just being able to apply general learning and teaching principles or guidelines. In Educational Studies 1: Classroom Learning and Student Development, we have been learned about how students learn. Most importantly, it involves inquiry-based activities which familiarize us with the roles of teachers in promoting learning and catering for student diversity and individual differences. Throughout the past lessons, one of the most influential, inspiring theories is the theories of motivation to understand and improve educational processes, which means helping our students see the true value of what they are doing and giving them reasonable expectation of success in achieving it.
As Hornby (1995:10) stated to his works, the word ‘achievement’ means a thing done successfully, especially with effort and skill. Achievement in demonstration method to become effective and efficient can be accomplished by making a good effort in the teaching and learning process. In order to improve skills and abilities, both students and teacher should work together to perform a communicative and creative class. Good efforts such as making well-prepared lesson plan and providing appropriate media and technology for the teaching and learning process can help students to come up ideas and knowledge
Furthermore, make sure that students ' self-belief is enhanced and they must believe that they are able to learn and deal with failures in order to develop their confidence towards learning. Allowing students to enjoy learning by working with others will enhance their sense of competence because cooperation between the students among themselves is a basic aspect of the Reconstructivism philosophy. The most important thing that I must pay attention to is my relationship with the students because when students feel comfortable toward the teacher, they can be engaged easily in the
Since reflecting is a good teaching approach, is it really effective to the learning of the students in the College of Industrial Education. Background of the Study Reflective teaching or reflective method is like dependent learning it requires the learner to be aware of his/her learning. Study and learning of the students comes from the different approaches, strategies, methods and even principles. Learning is said to be the change in behaviour of the learner or a students. Therefor; reflective teaching approach may help to foster the learning of the students, and reflective teaching approach is not only for the students it also help for the teacher to further improve their teaching.
