However even simple factors such as giving specific rather than general praise, showing interest in things their child shows interest in and establishing routines that promote health, well being and regular study still do make a difference in the way that children view school and learning and the value they hold to their working relationship with teachers. Parents can help the school and their children develop is supporting homework expectations attending open days and parents evenings. Homework is set by teachers when they feel it necessary to check the understanding of what was taught in the lesson, or to expand their knowledge further. If parents are there to support, help and encourage this to be completed it creates a positive learning environment and teaches organisational and study skills that will stay with the child(ren) for life. Open days and parent/carer evenings allow direct contact between the parent and teacher, giving both the chance to discuss the students progress both at home and in school, along with any worries or concerns either may
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
The evaluation was divided into two broad categories Scholastic that looked at the areas which were subject specific and Co-Scholastic that included activities that were co-curricular like life skills, attitudes and values. The Scholastic evaluations was divided into Summative assessment to help analyse how much the students have learned after teaching through various medium like multiple choice questions, long and short answers , match the following , fill in the blanks and understanding diagrams in science . and Formative assessment to evaluate the students everyday learning situations during teaching to help identify gaps to help provide feedback to teachers to take remedial action which was done through various tools like observation, document analysis ,peer reviews ,self-assessment ,tests and the various techniques used were like projects ,assignments , activities , making of posters ,charts ,collages ,group discussions and seminars whereas the life skills looked at enhancing the thinking, social and emotional skills . The summative assessment are to assess skills like teamwork ,leadership skills , memory and understanding along with
There are multiple reasons why schools should continue to assign homework to students. Often, people think homework encourages responsibility and higher academic achievement for students. Others frequently think homework allows parents and teachers to see the progress of each individual student. Pro Point 1 - Brenna Homework encourages responsibility and higher academic achievement. It gives the students a better understanding of the content in which they are learning, leading them to get more out of school.
These strategies can include additional elements of a balanced approach. The reading of a book aloud in a classroom setting and pointing at words as the words are spoken aloud provides students with the opportunity to see the spoken word in written context. Konza (2014, 154) notes in some research, oral language is excluded as a key element in learning to read. Although research suggests that oral language difficulties can lead to reading difficulties, therefore it is an important element. Once students understand oral language teachers can commence with working on
Mind’s Eye strategy could be one of their best ways to solve this problem. This strategy can develop students visualization and improve students reading comprehension as the technique includes students memory and asking them to be more critical in giving their perception and prediction. According to Silver, Strong and Perini (2007) mind’s eye is a reading strategy that is used by the teacher to improve students critical skill of the words on the page into memorable images. When the students read about a text the students will combine their background knowledge with the information that is gotten in the text. In addition, Sejnost (2009) states that this strategy is started by the students who listen to the keywords which are mentioned by the teacher and then attempt to visualize what are they hearing by making pictures in their minds.
These include goal setting, organizational skills, time management, and strategies to learn new things. They are precursors to learning, skills or ability sets that are important for students to learn any content area knowledge. These are often discussed in the context of executive functions. Executive functions impacts a student’s ability to socialize with their friends, converse with their teacher and other staff members, homework completion and simply getting to and from school. Researchers have found that when children exhibit executive function, they are able to learn more in the classroom, because they can focus on the teacher and their work.
1.4 Significance of the Study By doing this analysis, the writer hopes that the findings would be very beneficial for teachers to evaluate the speech styles that they have been using. Furthermore, hopefully, this study could help teachers to improve their speech styles used in the classroom. On the other words, teachers will be aware of the importance of adjusting the speech styles to the target learner needs. Besides, the findings of this study can help the teachers to be able to understand how to use male speech styles and female speech styles in the classroom to motivate their
Qualitative data was collected through interviews, focus groups, student work, and a teacher research journal. After analyzing the data, it was revealed that multi-sensory education can lead to student motivation as well as provide an opportunity to use technology and make connections to the outside world. The findings of the study indicated that multi-sensory education can also help teachers to access students' needs and aid in fostering a positive classroom environment. Finally, using a teaching approach that targets the senses promotes the development of a student-centered classroom, and can encourage students, who may have been silent within traditional classroom to emerge and have a voice within the multi-sensory classroom. Teaching through multi-sensory approach has many implications for new teachers, such as this teacher researcher, who are seeking ways to actively and meaningfully engage students within the
Creating a viable classroom reading environment that supports students’ intrinsic motivation calls for supporting their autonomy as well. This involves supporting their curiosity and interests in reading, offering them some control over reading activities, and allow for their decision making in setting learning goals. To contribute in increasing individualized intrinsic reading motivation, teachers (Ediger, 2001) can design classrooms that contain different library books (in order to meet all students’ interests in reading) for all students to be provided with opportunities to choose their individual books. Homes also play an essential role in enhancing students’ intrinsic reading motivation through making reading materials available. Indeed, to build the grounds for which teachers can foster their learners’ intrinsic reading motivation, the following strategies (Hunter, 2005) can be of practical application in classrooms.
