The student could receive their education in a self-contained classroom, a resource room for part of the day, or in an inclusion classroom. When deciding the proper place, the IEP team will also take into consideration the student’s social interactions, meaningful academic engagement and increase the student’s motivation. Social interactions are a fundamental component of any students learning. According to Dalien (2016), a self-contained classroom includes smaller groups of students, one on one attention and creates a more close-knit environment.
We need to observe the children in classrooms and carefully listen to their life experiences. By teaching the students to embrace all cultures and learn about them, it will create a unity in the classroom. Students then will feel safe and comfortable in the classroom (Gollnick & Chinn, 2012). It is no easy task to incorporate cultural knowledge throughout teaching. You must consciously think about multiculturalism as you interact with students and plan lessons and assignments (Gollnick & Chinn, 2012).
In addition to teaching modifications, teachers must include the parents in the class room activities. Teachers should be familiar with the obstacles they may face when implementing the techniques. These methods also have future implications in the higher education setting. Professors may utilize these techniques in their lectures. Students who have had these practices integrated into their learning will also be better prepared for higher education and for the workforce (Dominick L. Sturz,
The first step that must be taken is adjusting the teachers learning and/or instructing skills. The teachers should be required to attend a class where they have the opportunity to learn the material better, thus allowing them a more beneficial way to interpret their skills to the students, so that the students can better retain the material. The teachers should learn what material is most important to teach, in order to help the student be better prepared for life, considering that most of their poverty-stricken students will not be able to attend college. If teachers focus their attention on the learning experiences of students, and make changes based on what they know about teaching that promotes learning, students will understand more of what they are learning, retain what they learn longer, and learn more than just the content (Weimer, 2011, Para. 5). Thanks to the classes, teachers would be prepared and would feel more comfortable with the material that they are teaching.
Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress. Working together is success” (Brainy Quote). From here, the concept of inclusive education, including students with and without learning disabilities as peers in the same classroom, originated. The aim of this type of education is to get students with learning disabilities involved in the society. Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places.
Today’s typical classroom is far more diverse and complex than ever before. With the ever changing standards, methodologies and strategies, teachers breathe life into them and navigate a lot of disparate personalities and various backgrounds, interacting with each other, in any way. (Sagor, R. 2000) Lately, there have been contentious discussions on the key issues of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, immigration and other dimensions of diversity and social dominance and its implications in education and schools. But one thing is clear: when diversity comes to town, we are all challenged to grow.
You want to be patient with them and be consistent and have a trusting relationship with them because, if they are suffering depression, anger issues, then they think think that the teacher is gonna failed them. It is best to have a teacher tutor them for whatever is their weakness that needs to be worked on for the children. They want to help them as the best that they possibly can to help them pass, but we want them to know that we care about who you are and we just want to help you to learn something before you move on to the next grade and for the future. All children need stability to have
In school environments, it is crucial for students to establish meaningful relationships with various teachers. When teachers talk one on one with their students it is critical to ensure that the students feel accepted and understood. One method to ensure those feelings is through enacting in polite speech. One who is rude and standoffish would give the students less of a reason to build trust and to ensure comfort, therefore teachers often partake in polite speech to build these relations. Once that relation is formed, the student can easily go to speak to his or her teachers for extra help if needed.
By analyzing students sense-making (Weick, 1995), faculty can have a greater appreciation of what their students are thinking when they first begin class. Faculty will also have a better opportunity of addressing student concerns such as cultural accountability and meeting their educational needs in a communication style that is effective and understandable to each
My view has changed some about how to perform better with diverse students in the classroom as well. For instance, to work with students and parents I will post daily homework assignments on the class website. This approach is helpful to students if they need to confirm the assignment given.
Describe how you would adapt the strategy or activity you identified to meet the needs of the student. To meet Julie 's learning needs, I will adapt the activities to engage her class participation in different ways, and simplify the lesson to fit her learning demands. I will give Julie a copy of reading material, so she can trace the text and follow my reading tempo when I am reading the text to the rest of the class. Because she is able to read text independently at grade level, she can also read the text by herself if she needs to review or revisit the content. Allowing Julie to read along helps improve her comprehension and brings an emphasis on her strength in learning.
How will I use the strategy? How will it be used within the longer lesson? This strategy can be used to evoke predictions and get students engaged in the text before beginning the reading. Students may be encouraged to share their ideas and predictions with a partner or with the entire class.
