I incorporate this learned experience daily and learn through each success and discovered area of improvement. Addressing my students needs using a variety of assessment tools has been a beneficial practice to help guide instruction. Students have different learning styles and their strengths and weaknesses are not always apparent using the same methods of assessment. Utilizing formative, standards(goal)-based, anecdotal, observational and benchmarks has driven my instructional programs. The combination of different assessments provides me with a multi-dynamic perspective of my students allowing me to better understand their strengths, weakness and academic needs.
I was effective when it came to thinking out of the box. Students learn differently, so I had to develop and utilize different strategies and techniques to influence every student. Moreover, what works for one student may not work for another. Therefore, teachers have to be creative and adaptive with their
Everyday, I was challenged my students to learn something new. It was important to me to make a difference. Throughout my training, I implemented various strategies for engaging students in small groups and rigorous lessons. My role as a teacher is to communicate effectively, be respectful, and have self-worth and confidence. I did fear making wrong choices throughout this field experience.
Many children at school are capable of hiding their learning difficulties by steering clear from reading aloud or writing very little (Reid 2013, p13).Not to mention, the Report of the Task force on Dyslexia (2001) states learning difficulties from dyslexia occurs across the lifespan of a person and can vary from mild to severe at different ages (Report of the Task Force on Dyslexia, 2001). It is extremely vital for teachers to be fully aware and trained in the area of dyslexia. Teacher’s use of differentiation in their subjects in the classroom is a strong fundamental in order to meet the needs of a student with a learning difficulty like
In Hector’s case, he was experiencing behavioral problems and as a result, it hindered his learning ability and his ability to socially interact with his peers. If Hector and his needs were not properly assessed, Hector might have never learned how to properly interact with others and inside the classroom. Thankfully with the help of the IDEA act, Hector was given full support in addressing his needs and improving his situation. Therefore, it can be said that it is important to address diversities in the classroom for no child is the same and they each require different forms of education in accordance with their skill and abilities. By considering the diverse needs of those in the classroom, many will have the equal opportunity to a better education and further development as an
While considering their approach to manage course, educators are persistently scanning for the system that is most valuable for most of their understudies. Teachers require their understudies to value the learning strategy, and they require the classroom to be sorted out and controlled. As needs be, the reasonable exchange of educator centered versus understudy centered preparing has been in the cutting edge of instructors' minds for quite a while. In spite of the way that numerous people have a specific considered which kind of preparing is perfect, there are both purposes of intrigue and disadvantages to each approach. The accompanying is a delineation of each approach, close by a couple points of interest and burdens.
So they not only teach academically, but they also “help students learn about themselves and the world while preparing them to face future challenges” (“Elementary School Teacher” Occupational 1). On another note, they also “are responsible for monitoring kids for any social, learning, or behavioral issues” (“Elementary School Teacher” Career 1). The description of the job also depends on what kind of teaching position is taken, which leads me to the different types of teachers. Some teachers major in one topic while others
Shorter as well as longer school days are being debated across the country. Although, shorter hours do pose some issues, there are many benefits. Public education should rethink how long students spend in school because students are overloaded, tired, and are not eager to learn. To start with, longer school hours causes students to be overloaded. After all, a student could have a hard
But when facing higher level of education, we are approached with countless challenges for learning from different aspects, it is then we adapt from our experiences and instincts of what level is required of us. “If a student fails to understand some aspects of a lesson in class, he or she must possess the self-awareness and strategic knowledge to take corrective action” (Zimmerman, 2000, p65). As Zimmerman exclaimed that we ought to be “self-aware”, to be self-aware is to comprehend and perceive our particular strengths and weaknesses to face these issues and adjust to be successful in tertiary education. As Zimmerman says, “this perspective focused instead on what students need to know about them self in order to manage their limitations during efforts to learn…” (Zimmerman, 2000). There are limitations for myself which are essential to be self-aware and obligatory to be deliberated in order to complete higher education.
They focus on broadly defined complex abilities that can be both demonstrated and observed. Learning outcomes may be presented separately to represent the cognitive psychomotor and affective domains but often cover a range of interacting knowledge, skills and attitudes that reflect the complexities inherent to the process of learning, and represent the essential, enduring and integrated learning that a graduate of a course or program should possess. (Harden,2002;Soulsby,2009) Learning outcomes are statements of what a learner is expected to know, understand and be able to demonstrate after completion of a process of learning." Teamwork is a general meaning for all kind of cooperation where people are acting together. Therefore teamwork can be seen as a tool for learning mediators to participate themselves in teaching process with learners or cooperate with other learning mediators.
I found it particularly difficult to differentiate a task when I don’t know the students I will be differentiating for and according to Chapter 4 of Teaching Humanities and Social Sciences “Each students learning is monitored through assessment and teacher observation to identify the student’s progress and any problems that might be limiting his or her learning.” (Gilbert, R., & Hoepper, B., 2016). As a result, I think to accommodate diverse learning needs well I will need to know the students I will be altering. However I think one of the best aspects of the humanities is that it is so diverse and is able to cater to different people and learning
From the class I observed I noticed that the teacher often used repetition as the way to get the students to learn and get the correct answer. She did not simply tell the student what was wrong or the correct answer when they were wrong, she simply just said that is not the correct answer try again. This taught the students that the correct answer will not always be given to them right away, that they must work until they get it themselves. This is a good example of enculturation in the classroom. The students are learning from the repetition of correcting the problem.
