Giving the student self-monitoring charts will encourage the student to be more aware of taking responsibility for their future while establishing goals and creating progression charts. It is important for the teacher to reach out to his peers to find solutions to helping his/her student(s) learn in their own way to be more
I have gained patience when working with children and I believe it is a skill that is required in order for children to exceed their needs and to help a child during transitions to reach their full potential. Timing is key and with support the children will be able to emotionally adapt to attending school but also embrace new surroundings. Encouragement while children are taking part in activities in school allows children to gain self-esteem and confidence as they are being motivated which can give them a sense of achievement. Being a role model to the children is a personal skill as it gives me pride knowing the children are inspired by me and that they can learn from me by using their own initiative, being helpful to others and allowing the children to give suggestions on what they would like to do can keep them
There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010).
Significance of the Study This study has implications for educators, school districts parent and students. Parent engagement intervention and prevention studies occur in comprehensive schools but parent engagement research in an alternative education setting is minimal to non-existent. As a result of this study school districts will recognize a need to create and reengage parents in their students education as a means for student academic success.
According to Duffy (2004) it is important for the mentor to facilitate learning needs and assessment by giving the student the opportunity to reflect on their learning needs and assess themselves. It is also arguable that it is important for a student to identify their own learning needs and self-assessment but the mentor needs to adhere to assessment process in order to provide fair and accurate assessment (Walsh 2014). The most important role of a mentor is to assess the progress of a student accurately and identify the learning needs and problems which the student is encountering on a placement at an early stage. (Philips et al 2000). To assess accurately and holistically a mentor should be able to assess the student’s competency through measurable assessment tools and to do assessment process accurately (Embo et al 2015).
Piaget and Maslow: Teaching the whole child Exceptional educators keep their fingers on the pulse of what their students need, in order to teach them effectively. Examining Piaget and Maslow’s theories, and applying them to the classroom will facilitate achieving this goal. Considering Piaget’s focus on development, and Maslow’s prioritization of human needs, one can integrate these ideas into classrooms and lesson plans that are optimized for student success.
5. Dissolution – Don’t ever end. The “Five F’s of Group Process” (page 38) are: 1. Friendly phase – The introduction involves forming relations to get to know each other.
He talks of how by sending the student to school, the parent is now having to contend with a teacher for their child’s affection. This results in a conflict of interest. A parent is a helper to the teacher because they help with their student’s learning. By competing with the teacher for the child’s attention, the parent is doing the opposite thing to which they should be, they are facing off with the teacher, with the end result of confliction. He then has another break in his paper, which is used to switch to the view of a teacher.
From this point, I knew that the child could not perform at the optimal level of wellness for Piaget’s concrete operational model. So I had to take things down a notch. I decided to test KS using Piaget’s preoperational model instead of the concrete operational—hoping this model would prove more fundamental to the child; intriguingly, this proved to be KS ideal model. KS has a “schedule” (according to his parents) which he uses to keep up with the tasks of the day. KS checks this schedule when he knows that he needs to accomplish something.
Independence is when someone becoming an adult, where they can handle issues by themselves. This person is able to have their own ideas and opinions when they are making decisions. Many people have misunderstood the idea of being independent, they believe that living apart from their parents means they are independent. In the essay, “Invisible Labors: Caring for the Independent Person” by Lynn May Rivas, she states “Independence, after all, is not simply a passive status: it is something people ‘do’”(76). Being independent is not passive, where someone accepts what happens without any response, it should be a time where the person understands their responsibility and they are not influenced by others.
1) Discuss strengths in the profession and on-line program. I believe that my background as school teacher has allowed me to develop certain strengths that will benefit me as I enter the school counseling profession. Firstly, my communication style is versitile and enables me to appropriately instruct students, collaborate effectively with teachers, connect with parents, and rally support from administrators and stakeholders. Secondly, I am able to bring a creative, motivating, and caring spirit to the school environment, that fosters collaborative efforts among teachers, administrators, students, and parents to achieve the common goal of promoting the success of all students. Lastly, my experience working with underserved and underrepresented students in a Title I school has heightened the role as an advocate for students.
