Children’s programs should be based on children’s needs as they are going to grow, develop and mature in educators’ care and planned programs. Therefore, this is essential for educators to define their philosophy in education. Equality and Diversity It is important that an educator must consider the individual differences and design curricula that suitable for every child.
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.
Allowing them to be successful learners, confident and creative. Helping develop interests through play based learning, to construct their own identities of the world. Research demonstrates that children’s quality early learning experiences set them up for academic success and personal wellbeing later in life (Sylva, Siraj-Blatchford, Taggart, Sammons, Melhuish, Elliot and Totsika, 2006; Clarke, 2009). Linking each experience to one of the five outcomes.
One most important tip is for teachers should educate themselves and learn as much as they can about intellectual disabilities. There are some techniques and strategies that teachers can also use to support children educationally. First teachers must recognize that they can make a difference in student’ lives by finding out what their strengths and interests are, focus on them, and create opportunities for success. Teachers must also be concrete as possible by demonstrating what they mean rather than giving directions verbally and tasks that are longer in steps should be broken down into smaller steps and provide assistance when necessary. As it relates to student skills, teachers should teach life skills such as social skills and occupational awareness and exploration by involving students in group or club activities.
In-classroom therapy- An Approach to Lateral Thinking: For children with serious emotional, developmental and cognitive disturbances, effective treatment early in life is crucial to fully support two precious human functions: loving and learning. This therapy is a deliberately synergetic combination of Love, Education and Therapy of in-classroom psychological treatment for children. The possibility of creating a model program for all economic classes and those with varied problems is a gripping solution. Its techniques include individualized in-classroom psychodynamic psychotherapy for each child, briefings, debriefings and parent guidance- all of which take place within the context of an early childhood educational process.
However I do know that when a student is being assessed the teacher is not only learning about the student behaviors however that teacher is also learning about themselves and their behaviors (The Young Child Development from Prebirth Through Age Eight, n.d). When I am working with children this process have taught me to do more assessments and therefore I will be able to learn the child and know specific what the students are capable of doing and I would be able to provide materials and strategies according to their skills and they will be more effective with excellent
As a future middle school teacher, I will take into consideration all of the learning styles of my students to plan lessons and assessments for their benefit. I
The Love and Logic model is used by both parents and educators alike and it follows the confronting-contracting model of discipline. The goal of the confronting-contracting discipline model is to have students reflect on their behavior and its effects which is consistent with the goal of Love and Logic. The task of confronting-contracting teachers is to help strengthen students’ decision making capacities, while permitting students control to choose how they will change their behavior (Husu, 2014). Ultimately, Love and Logic is designed to nurture children as they grow, while giving them what tools they need to succeed in life. There are four major principles of Love and Logic with four
Hearing impairment (HI) is a serious issue in childhood development that may adversely affect a child’s academic performance as well as communication and social skills in life. The purpose of this research is to find out the most effective ways in classroom management for HI students to lead them to achieve their maximum potential in life. This paper will look at some behavioral problems among HI students as well as the challenges the teachers encounter in a classroom along with helpful management guidelines from professional educators. This paper will also tackle on some useful ideas on classroom accommodations and adaptation. Today, technology successfully improved learning experience for special education, especially for HI students who
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.
Itcan also be used to monitor readiness skills. When using CBM, the instructor provides thestudent with brief, timed samples, or "probes," constructed of academic material taken from thestudent’s school curriculum. In addition, the CBM graphs are able to provide you with greatinformation that can be shared with parents, teachers, and administration. CBM is an effectivetool when determine if a child should be retained or not. Progress monitoring is extremely important, and should be done frequently.
Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP) is important to understand prior to implementing creative activities in your classroom because from the reading I liked a few points on how young children develop and learn and what is known about effective early education. First, knowing what is expected at each stage of a young child 's development is important, and it informs decisions about the best practices. Another key factor is knowing exactly what is appropriate for each individual child. Watching children play can give important insight to their progress and ability.
Hilary Jo Seitz suggests that teachers can identify and learn about children’s interests, experiences, questions, comments and conversations. Then help, extend and encourage them to follow their interests. After that, construct a plan for an effective learning experience that are connected deeply to their interests. Teachers initiate this process through their observation first, then documentation. The documentation could be presented through children’s conversation, photos and work samples.
As a Special Education Teacher, I am committed to working with children who have challenging behaviors. My objective is to help students develop self-regulating skills and to be able to function as part of a group. I believe that every child should be given the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential of communication and functional independence in order to build self-esteem and self-awareness. Through the mastering of these essential skills, a student will gain the ability to reach their fullest potential in all aspects of their lives. My overall goal is to make difference in the lives of my students by providing an educational program that will maximize the abilities of my students and prepare them for a more independent setting to
OT therapists can evaluate kids abilities and help them grow to be developmentally appropriate for their age (Occupational Therapy). They know many ways to help children with their disabilities. They know how to specifically solve the child 's problem in many ways. OT ’s know what tools they need to use to fix the child’s problem to make sure the child will show improvement.
