She allowed me to supervise the students during activities, as well as help measure their reading comprehension over the months I volunteered. I was able to have a connection with the teacher I was paired with; however, the most important relationship was with each student. Each student has a unique personality, and or a different need, some varying from day to day. You must really have a compassion for teaching kids how to learn and grow or you will not succeed in the early ages of childhood
I plan to review my walkthrough notes with the teacher and provide her some examples or second grade samples for her to see what they will soon be required to do. I will also give her some scenarios to try with her own students. I hope the teacher will use my feedback as a tool in her classroom. I do not think she is not a well-rounded teacher, I believe she wants to help them and see them succeed, but it should done in moderation. I will also invite her to my class and see a similar math lesson that they are taught to gain ideas and see from a different perspective.
PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES We encourage conferences, including the student, his/her teachers, parents and a counselor in order to seek constructive solutions to academic problems. Parent- Teacher conferences are schedules every quarter to keep the Parents updated about their child’s progress. Conferences may be arranged through the Counseling Office. Individual teacher conferences may also be scheduled by contacting the receptionist to arrange the appointment with the concerned teacher. Parents can also contact the teachers via “CLASSERA”.
Zoharit also writes on the corner of the board the names of students that finish first, for extra motivation. When most students are done Zoharit checks their answers and adds questions on the board with the help of students. Zoharit writes an additional sentence on board and asks the students to write 3 questions that their answers can be found in the sentence (beginning with when, where and how many). The students are quite while working since doing the same type
Reflective Account Throughout a learning programme it is the responsibility of a Learning Support Assistant to supervise and monitor students in the learning environment and outside of the learning environment if this is necessary. This can be done in many different ways depending on the students’ needs and disabilities. Some students need the support from an Learning Support Assistant by having the task or assignment that they are working on read to them, sometimes more than once so that they actually understand what they need to do, others need to have their notes taken down for them because they struggle to take all of the notes themselves, they should always be encouraged to take their own notes even if they do not get them all. You may
What strategies would you use to assess the school climate with the intent of identifying and removing barriers to student learning? • School climate survey given to parents, students and teachers • Interviews with students, parents and teachers. • Monthly forums for parents and teachers • PTOs • Create an Advisory/Leadership Committee with members form the faculty, student body, parents and community (not just the principal, assistant principals and school counselors) to help make new policies to identify and remove barriers to student learning. Have monthly meeting with agendas and create action plans to be incorporated into the educational process that will benefit all of the students achievement goals. • Provide and maintain a safe environment for the faculty and students - this could mean that costly security measures have to be implemented, ranging from Security personnel to metal detectors.
What is particular interesting about this extract is the way teacher constructing her feedback and how the feedback is conveyed to the student after the presentation. Particularly, the feedback is delayed and substituted with an additional turn where the teacher does facework before moving onto her evaluation of the student’s
For example, use a KWL chart before reading and ask students to write what they know about the topic in the first column and then what they want to learn. This strategy in an efficient way for teachers because it supports them find out what students know before reading (Fogarty, 2007). For activating schema also I suggest to ask students to write something quickly about the topic, to measure their background knowledge about the topic and try to support them make connections between their background knowledge and their personal experience and then they can share information with their colleagues and learn from each other, so students will have input to understand the text better (Tompkins, Literacy for the 21st century, 2006). As I said visuals are very important for visual learners to learn. Indeed, I suggest to use a short video that displays something relates to the topic because students will enjoy watching it and at the same time, they will obtain some input that can scaffold them during while reading stage, according to Wright “Many media and many styles of visual presentation are useful to the language learner.
Be respectful to other student’s opinions and views, not everyone will have the same opinion on a subject that some students do. Show your teacher the proper attention while she is teaching, students miss out on useful information while doing other things during class. Secondly, do your work, assignments are all laid out for students in the syllabus and if you know you will not be able to show up to class work on the assignments ahead of time. The instructor allows students NQA coupons which extends the original due date of one
There are different strategies that can be used by the teachers for effective class management among which the most significant is clearly setting out the format of lessons. This is done with the help of setting objectives and aims, giving regular positive feedback, reviewing the learning outcomes and giving an in depth summary and final exercise to the students. While on the other hand, the teacher can also make use of rubrics for understanding the abilities of students. The teachers can also make use of self-reflection as the strategy for class management because it helps the students in analysing their own learning and development abilities. With the help of this strategy, the teacher would be able to determine the pros and cons of each
