MY PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION (INCLUDING CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT) Our personal teaching philosophy determines our approach to instruction; therefore, it is essential to have a profound understanding of our own belief system. Ones view of learning and teaching is also affected by the values we believe in. I personally believe that the goal of education should be to encourage students to seek answers to develop their schemas as well as to facilitate their development of knowledge. Aside from academics, I also believe teachers should focus on instilling values in students such as the need for trust, fair play, and the ability to take prospective, also a desire to grow older and have a positive influence on society. While teaching I would like to take
There are many more trends but I chose these because they appealed to me most. Being a teacher as a facilitator means learning about student’s cultures and using teaching approaches that accommodates all learning styles.

Culturally relevant and Responsive Teaching means displaying cultural competence, skills at teaching in cross cultural or multicultural settings. This allows students to relate content to their own
Due to the fact that the curriculum, instruction, assessment, school funding, and desegregation aren’t made for ALL students to succeed we as educators must use what we know about our students, education, and history to inform our teaching. It is important to use the experiences and culture of our students (getting to know them) to make our instruction more relatable. In classrooms students shouldn’t feel like their stories aren’t heard. Educators must construct a positive classroom environment so that students will feel comfortable being themselves and taking risks with their language (ELL) which includes ALL students not just one population.

Inquiry into Cultures Culture is defined as the customary beliefs, social forms, and material traits of a racial, religious, or social group; also: the characteristic features of everyday existence (such as diversions or a way of life) shared by people in a place or time (Merriam Webster). Culture makes people unique and without it, everyone would be blended together. Culture in my opinion is a great thing; however, with all great things come challenges. Learning more about other cultures would be a great way to overcome these challenges, and learning another language is a huge step in that direction. One of the biggest challenges brought about by having many cultures, is the misunderstanding between people of these cultures.
SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN DIFFERENT SOCIOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE ESSAY EDUCATION AS A SOCIAL INSTITUTION: Social institutions are an important element in the structure of human societies. They provide a structure for behavior in a particular part of social life. Education is one of the major social institutions that exist in the society. It establishes a goal of social equality and a common knowledge base among students. It is the realization of self potential and talents of an individual for the benefit and continuity of society and life.
Education is derived from the word ‘educare’ which means bringing up of children both physically and mentally. The encyclopedia of Britannica defines education as transmission of the values and accumulated knowledge of society’. Education is designed to guide the child in learning a culture, moulding his or her behavior in the ways of adulthood, and guiding him towards his or her eventual role in society. It is conscious social function which began when man started interacting with material reality with the purpose of moulding or changing it to satisfy his needs. Thus education embraces a multi- process by which culture and values are transmitted from generation to generation.
