Furthermore, make sure that students ' self-belief is enhanced and they must believe that they are able to learn and deal with failures in order to develop their confidence towards learning. Allowing students to enjoy learning by working with others will enhance their sense of competence because cooperation between the students among themselves is a basic aspect of the Reconstructivism philosophy. The most important thing that I must pay attention to is my relationship with the students because when students feel comfortable toward the teacher, they can be engaged easily in the
Teacher must integrate teaching strategies that will help students to assimilate knowledge such as supportive classroom environment, recognition of difference and connectedness to the wider world. This will boost up student’s confidence and contributes to their sense of function for being at school. Good teachers know the content, know how to give explanation, expect and demand high level of performance from learners. These teachers are great performers that rivet their students’ attention. However, great teachers engineer learning experiences that eventually make the students connect experiences with diverse areas of knowledge in a significant
“Formative assessment is a process used by teacher and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust on going teaching and learning to improve students’ achievement of intended instructional outcomes (Caroline Wylie and Christine Lyon, 2013).” I believe that formative assessments are essential for both students and teachers to inform instruction within lessons and they confirm how much students know about the lesson and how teacher can support to engage in their learning. I approve that asking better questions affords students an opportunity for deeper thinking and provides teachers to know the levels of students’ understanding. In my class, when I started the lesson with inquiring based questions by eliciting learners’ level of background knowledge, the students promptly gave feedback or response quickly to me. It was so notable that I could make
Hopefully, the findings of this study would help teacher trainers and educators to prepare would-be teachers for their future jobs. Providing teachers with sufficient knowledge about what they are going to teach can facilitate both the teaching and learning processes. A linguistically aware teacher understands how language works, anticipates and understands the student’s problems with language, pays attention to errors and other interlanguage features, can promote language learning by designing appropriate tasks in his/her classes. The language achieved by the students can show the relationship between the L2 teacher’s language awareness and the effectiveness of that teacher (Andrews, 2007). The following research question was posed to conduct the current
It also implies to be caring and understandable and above all enhance learning. An effective teacher should be able to provide effective teaching and learning process. Dealing with the tasks about “differentiated instruction”, “motivation”, “disciplines”, and “thinking skills” has broaden my mind better about what they are. During my reading for the assignment, I have been able to understand each theory which is link to the point mentioned above. Moreover, I have learned how to apply it during my teaching in classroom so as to increase positive response from my students.
Chapter One Theory of Teacher’s Pedagogical Preparation Sustainability 1.1. Introduction Peer observation of teaching or, as it is sometimes referred to, peer review is defined as the process of observation in which a university teacher sits in on a teaching session with the express intention of offering feedback as a critical friend. When officially implemented in a faculty or department, the constant objective is to engage a maximum number of teachers in raising their awareness to the processes, as well as, the content of teaching. The intent of this chapter which is devoted to literature is to clear up; hopefully, the opaque elements of the concept of peer observation of teaching and ultimately relate it discretely to the practical
Effective teachers, like good artists, use body language and facilitate their verbal behavior, leading to better understanding and learning of the subject matter by the students (Sprinthall,1994 as cited in Arif & Chaudhary, 2012). I do agree that effective teachers are good artists to create good learning environment for language learners. Birjandi and Nushi (2011) state “Posture refers to the body orientation, arm position, and body openness of interlocutors that can indicate their degree of attention or involvement, their status, and their intimacy” (p.
For example, I learned that the topic enhances the way education is delivered and experienced in a classroom. For example, teaching to be and active listeners, practicing speaking skills, reinforcing the classroom management should start from the minute the students enter into the class. I realized that selecting requires engaging activities to gain students’ interest. It enables students demonstrate skills in an non-threating environment. During the class, I observed the students interested in listening to their peer.
Rather, provoking in learners the willing to have an active participation for using the target language. In short, the type of discourse that the teachers employ it is the bridge to have a class where teacher and learners can interact each other switching opinions and ideas. In a monologic discourse initiates, the student responds and the teacher assess. On the other side, dialogic discourse creates an environment of conducting students into the target language. Finally, monologic means teacher-centered.
Discourse analysis a broad term for the study of the way of analyzing the relationship between the language and context. It is also called discourse studies. Discourse in classroom is the term that refers to the language that teachers and students use to communicate with each other in the classroom. The teacher’s instructions extremely affect to the students’ acquirement in classroom so a successful teacher is a person who can use their language to teach students and manage classroom effectively. It means that appropriate teacher discourse can create the harmonious atmosphere and promotes a more friendly relationship between teachers and students, and consequently creates more opportunities for interactions between teachers and students (LIU Yanfen & ZHAO Yuqin, 2010).
