As a future teacher you want to improve the way history and societal views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders is being taught, to provide a better foundation of study for students. With this in mind creating an activity that did this and was in line with curriculum knowledge and skills was a challenging task and I realized that this
What have I learned about myself as a learner from this chapter? According to the beginning of this chapter, each person who lives long enough will become a part of every age group. Without choice, we must all go through the various stages in life and eventually join the ranks of the aged. Like other cultural groups, we feel, think, perceive, and behave, in part, based on the age group to which we belong. The study of age as a function of culture is important to educators because it helps them understand how the child or adolescent struggles to win peer acceptance and to balance this effort with the need for parental approval.
It is no doubt that nowadays, we see around us the wealth of diversity in our nation’s schools. Definitely I will see in classroom after classroom, students of all different races and cultural backgrounds study together. Therefore, it is no wonder that as an effective teacher, I will assure to be culturally responsive and advocate for my all students rights. However, it takes more than to be aware that we are a multicultural nation. In Chapter 3, page 71 through 74, provide me the four strategies to become a culturally responsive.
This paper focused on Model Residential School teacher’s awareness about tribal culture and critically evaluates importance of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy. Culture influences each and every life stage of a person. Hence culture plays a very important role in his stage of education. In some situations cultural difference makes some constraints to students with diverse culture. It is essential a culture based teaching strategy to overcome these problems.
They used their individual talents to accomplish the goal. The video emphasis the importance of involving everyone experiences not just a designated few. Teachers are faced with the challenge of making instruction “culturally responsive” for all students while not favoring one group over another. These are asked to demonstrate their understanding, when the teacher prompts them to use the materials provided
First, it requires that we need to make sure that all learners should participate fully in the life and work of mainstream setting. Second, it conveys a continuing progression of breaking down hurdles to learning and participation for all children and young people. Third, it suggests a right to fit in the mainstream or a joint undertaking by all the segments of the society and to eliminate discrimination and to work toward equal opportunities for all learners of education. Hence, Ozoji (2005) defined inclusive model of education as an education approach or program carefully planned to educate learners with sundry needs within the mainstream or school, irrespective of their weaknesses and
The needs of this group consist of having a breakdown of the lesson that includes hands-on adaptation of the lesson for all students with medical conditions that impair their processing of information. Other needs include audio for the visually impaired and visuals for English language learners and hearing impaired. At home interventions can help all students practice and build upon what they learned in the classroom and produce even greater connections in the minds of the students. All students in this Class Profile should begiven the equal opportunity to learn without prejudicial judgement but rather compassion and willingness to take their knowledge to the next level. Educators have the duty to justly serve these children in a way that only elevates them to accomplish tasks inside and outside the
Chapter 4 Creating a Safe Learning Environment This is an extensive examination of all of the considerations and steps required to develop a structured and effective school and classroom environment. Such an environment provides the best chance for all members of a learning community to explore their lessons in a safe and secure state. Introduction This essay provides a sequence of steps that allow the teacher to create a classroom rule to address inappropriate behaviours that disturb the learning of all members of the class. The need for such structure stems from the underpinning philosophy that students will only learn prescribed abstract content when their physical and social needs are fundamentally satisfied. When behaviours designed
Now, let me move on to my arguments. Feminism should be taught in class firstly because teaching it would exercise the rights of these children simply because the school should be giving them knowledge as much as possible and it shouldn’t only be about linear equations and etc., but they also need to know about the issues that are happening in the world around them especially because it affects them the most. They are the next generation thus, the values that they have learned now will affect the world in the future. If they are not taught about
Exactly, see I believe the reason there are benefits in my opinions on having inclusion in the classroom, because it teaches the general education compassion and willing to support their peers. For fact, they see them struggling. Though I believe the rare benefits to having inclusion in the class with change there are always challenges. Yet I believe the teachers will have the biggest change as they will learn how to manage a classroom with students that learn on different levels. “Part of the problem, I think, was that we were desegregating with- out any regard whatsoever for if that particular child belonged in that particular class” (Carpenter, 2008, p. 136).
This is something that everyone must show as it is a “process success criterion”. Two examples will be displayed. They will be modelled by the teacher, but he will try to obtain as much information as possible from the students. As asserted by Holton and Clarke (2006), conceptual scaffolding should be provided in order to move students through ZPD. By the time the model questions have been completed, the scaffolding will almost be completely removed and the students will be working independently.
According to Angelina Castagno ethnic studies professor at Northern Arizona University states, “Most teacher preparation programs focus on content/subject-matter knowledge, as well as procedural knowledge about how to manage one’s classroom and curricula”. Beginning teachers start off with just trying to command and manage their classroom than after that they begin teaching the content of their instruction. If you were to have a teacher preparation program just focusing on integrating the Dine culture and language your students would thrive better in the content knowledge. Should teacher preparation programs teach the pre-service teachers how to be culturally responsive teachers in Native schools? First of all, the article states that if
Responsive-Instruction.aspx ">Culturally responsive instruction requires that teachers consider individual cultural aspects when imparting knowledge and designing content. Culturally responsive instruction uses concepts such as gender, ethnicity, religion and social class to create dynamic learning environments that improve motivation levels and knowledge acquisition. Student engagement and motivation levels are directly linked to cultural values and behaviors. Certain cultural beliefs demand persistence, while others invoke a sense of enjoyment for certain tasks. Every culture has their unique conception and interpretation of academic progress, failure and success.
I feel that the consequence policy had appropriate consequences for different violations, I thought that having different consequences for different levels of offenses was a good idea for the elementary school. Consequences are extremely important for students to learn how to behave and what is and is not appropriate for them to do in school. The curriculum enforcement policy ties directly into my group (the curriculum committee). The curriculum enforcement policy had different parts that were incorporated into it that all passed, most of the policy focused directly on having the teachers collaborate with one another. As a future educator I agreed with the policy immensely, I feel that in order to have a successful teaching staff collaboration is key.
