However even simple factors such as giving specific rather than general praise, showing interest in things their child shows interest in and establishing routines that promote health, well being and regular study still do make a difference in the way that children view school and learning and the value they hold to their working relationship with teachers. Parents can help the school and their children develop is supporting homework expectations attending open days and parents evenings. Homework is set by teachers when they feel it necessary to check the understanding of what was taught in the lesson, or to expand their knowledge further. If parents are there to support, help and encourage this to be completed it creates a positive learning environment and teaches organisational and study skills that will stay with the child(ren) for life. Open days and parent/carer evenings allow direct contact between the parent and teacher, giving both the chance to discuss the students progress both at home and in school, along with any worries or concerns either may
I believe this is an ideal classroom setup. I have also included other things that should be considered while creating and setting up your classroom. Resources, pupils’ works and materials are placed near the door of the classroom so pupils can get what they need as they enter for the day. This place is also ideal for any handouts as pupils come in during the morning and from recess. Setting up a routine of having pupils gather their own work will promote responsibility on their part.
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).
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. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
We should pay attention to classrooms for young learners it should be a place where they feel cared and safe. It should be a great place to be, beautiful place and creative environment. Teachers have to use different pedagogical approaches. They should participate actively in their learning and to assist professional development. The
These things would include the use of anecdotal records, how to better control certain behaviors in the classroom and school, and getting parents to be better involved in the school program to increase the knowledge and quality of the classroom. The anecdotal records with give me a chance to better understand the child as an individual and know what they do best at and what they need to improve on as well. Controlling certain behaviors will allow me to have better class management and less discipline in the classroom. Lastly, getting the parents involved in the program will allow me to improve the program to benefit other teachers and the children, make appropriate and fun activities for the children to enjoy, and improve my knowledge for the
Gender Variation in my classroom discourse. Now a day, Education is becoming in one of the most crucial factors into an individual’s life where the society points out how someone behaves, acts and relates with others. It shows how talented and wise a person is. Into a classroom, there is a wide diversity among students where teacher should take advantage of it and might learn to manage it, understand it and respect it because learners come from different personal and cultural backgrounds. When a teacher comes in a classroom, he is getting immerse into an environment which its reality sometimes can be a big challenge to work with.
One example would be to add in a lesson that involves discussing a relevant topic with a partner or a group of people. This activity would allow students to think of the information in a new way that might help to reinforce the information. Another example would be to add a lesson that would involve the students creating a skit based on a topic that is covered in the course. Using these as well as other engaging and interactive lessons, Ditto could increase the amount that the students actively participate in the class. He would also be helping to increase the amount of information that the students retain, since the article by Elizabeth English says that one of the best ways to learn is by doing
Formative assessments are on-going and provide great opportunities for teachers to gauge their instruction as well as student to reflect upon their learning. Formative Table 1. Comparison of the Phases of SCIS and BSCS Learning Cycle Model SCIS Learning Cycle Model BSCS 5E Learning Cycle Model Exploration Invention (Term Introduction) Discovery (Concept Application) Engagement (New Phase) Exploration Explaination Elaboration Evaluation (New Phase) assessments also provide great chance for students to apply feedback from the teacher and their peers to evaluate and make improvements to their work. Whereas, summative assessments are designed to unveil student learning
Qualitative data was collected through interviews, focus groups, student work, and a teacher research journal. After analyzing the data, it was revealed that multi-sensory education can lead to student motivation as well as provide an opportunity to use technology and make connections to the outside world. The findings of the study indicated that multi-sensory education can also help teachers to access students' needs and aid in fostering a positive classroom environment. Finally, using a teaching approach that targets the senses promotes the development of a student-centered classroom, and can encourage students, who may have been silent within traditional classroom to emerge and have a voice within the multi-sensory classroom. Teaching through multi-sensory approach has many implications for new teachers, such as this teacher researcher, who are seeking ways to actively and meaningfully engage students within the
Posting classroom essential agreements puts ownership for respect in the hands of all individuals in the room. Respecting each other in the learning environment improves learning by allowing freedom to learn without fear of retaliation or embarrassment. It encourages small group work and empowers success in large group work collaboration. 7) Consistent Homework
If a student is not making adequate progress, they try other interventions or ways of implementing instruction to help students to progress. Outstanding educators are flexible and can think quickly, they are able to adjust lessons to meet the needs and address the learning styles of their students as necessary. An outstanding teacher is firm but fair when disciplining students. These educators are always aware of what is going on in their classrooms and monitor situations as needed to quickly and effectively keep things from getting out of control. Outstanding educators get to know their students, and show them respect and kindness.
