In addition to Dweck’s article, you can further explore a similar idea in an article by author 's Michael Ford and Michael Opitz, called "Helping Young Children Discover The Joy Of Learning", In her article, Dweck states "It is the belief that intelligence can be developed that opens students to a love of learning, a belief in the power of effort and constructive, determined reactions to setbacks." (Dweck 2). Dweck argues that intelligence is developed and the more you apply yourself, the more you will achieve success. This argument is extended in an article by Michael Ford and Michael Opitz article "Helping Young Children Discover The Joy Of Learning" which they claim that "The theoretical foundation for joyful learning involves exploration of current thinking about motivation and engagement"(Ford, Opitz 2). A concern that teachers have is how to get their students motivated and engage in their learning on a day to day basis.
Because I was actively tutoring students I was able to improve my own knowledge of the course material and continuously learn and improve myself. National Honor Society also serviced
This helps the kids understand the severity of the situation a lot better since they had already learned about the KKK. The theory relates to PST numbers 1a, 1b, and 1c. These professional standards all have to do with knowing the material well and making the appropriate connections to other things. The second principle in the cognitive learning theory is “effective instruction encourages learners to coordinate their various mental processes” (Fetsco and McClure, CLT #2). An example of this theory being used in Codell’s classroom is when they celebrate “Cajun Christmas”.
I believe this type of well-organized schedule helps the children to know what is expected of them. Also, the hands on approach between the students and the teacher allows for individualized learning for the children. Finally, I found their purposely using open ended questions to encourage the children into thinking for themselves during the Choice Time to be an excellent teaching method. 2. Provide a descriptive personal or professional observation that is similar to the concept you selected from the video (use initials in place of a child’s name).
It is important that students receive instruction in both language English and Spanish to improve their academic knowledge at school. This program is successful for children because it is important learn two or more language in their life. Dual-language is the wonderful opportunity for children could communicate with other children and will have the opportunity to learn different cultures. Dual Language is a program to benefit the student to have very good communication with others students at school or when they visit their relatives in their parents country. In my opinion, it is a wonderful program because the children have the opportunity to learn both languages at the same time at the early age.
I bring a creative approach to teaching and planning, as creativity is an important part of who I am. I use a variety of resources and methods of delivery and learning to engage and motivate children. Whilst providing PPA, I had the confidence from teachers to alter plans and plan lessons using these approaches. These lessons received praise for my content and methods of delivery. I use first hand experiences to immerse and engage children throughout topics.
Hence, the bilingual pre-service educators' profile and training were crucial in terms of motivation, creativity and the lesson planning itself. During this bilingual implementation, it was evidence how the bilingual educators' behavior in terms of their charisma and compromise affected children's motivation. If children perceived that the bilingual educators were taking part of the activities by modeling, singing and dancing enthusiastically, they were more engaged and eager to participate in the activities proposed. Also, in the observations it was noticed that the emergent bilinguals were engaged through longer periods of time when they were exposed to colorful and creative material, as well as kinesthetic activities. Though their attention span may be extended at times and activities may vary in nature; it is recommended to follow a scheme of a settling and then a stirring activity where the layout is modified, given that they may get bored when sitting in the same position for longer periods of
Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements. By adopting these several motivational strategies in the classroom will affect the enthusiasm of the students in a positive way, thus promoting and sustaining
Because of the improvement in teaching along with many different classes that are made to help kids with their specific problems, students now understand concepts better. Not too many years ago kids with special needs and difficulty understanding what they were taught had to struggle with learning by themselves. Now with more classes and teachers to help the kids personally, the grades have gone up. Along with the classes, an improvement and a more frequent use of technology has given students even more ways of learning and understanding the curriculum. This is because “Many digital materials include features like adaptive quizzes, practice activities, animations and simulations, calendar functions and gradebooks.” (Bluestone 1).
Hi Tiffany, There are so many innovative ways we can use technology to better our experiences as educators. We can use technology to support diversity among many methods in which can be used. I love observing my students exploring with technology with many learning subjects. This experience helps them to become better communicators and problem solvers. Thank you Tiffany I wish you the best of your endeavors.
This demonstrates my understanding of effective learning though appropriate instructional strategies because is displays how I implemented a variety of materials and technological resources to support my instructional strategies and reinforce student learning. It also conveys my ability to assess student’s through both formal (activity sheet) and informal (thumbs up) assessment techniques. These techniques help me evaluate the student’s strengths/weaknesses and the effectiveness of my instructional strategies. This particular skill outcome is important to early childhood education because implementing instructional strategies that reach the diversity of our students is going to promote overall student success. We, as early childhood educators, have to use a variety of strategies to discover more about the student’s developmental process and adjust our instruction in a way that will promote students to become self-directed
Through these conversations students were able to develop a more concrete understanding of the concepts taught in the explore portion of the lesson. Dr. Bradbury also supports students’ engagement by providing real life connections of heat transfers to students’ lives, shown in 5:52-6:31 min and 9:19-11:26 min of the video. These real life connections Dr. Bradbury made can make abstract ideas such as heat transfer, more concrete because students can match experiences they have had in real life to the ideas being taught in class. Another area where Dr. Bradbury supports student learning is where she writes important concepts on the board, as well as
Having a firm grasp on the benefits and disadvantages of different types of argument in different situations is a lucrative ability, and through rhetorical skill practice in schools, many students can be able to develop the skills for themselves. Rhetorical analysis should be brought back as a staple in education because the class can teach people to become better-informed citizens, make better arguments at the right time, and can even improve grades in literature or analysis based
