She had a large periodic table on the wall so that it was easy for the students to see. The students seemed engaged and excited to learn. 2. The teacher I observed was Carissa Dickes. I thought that Carissa had wonderful classroom management strategies.
In other words, they often used the type of assessment that mainly focuses on the ability of the students to arrive or produce or demonstrate their own learning. They rarely used the assessment tools that focus on the product their students were able to come up with. There are many reasons why teachers are reluctant to use formative assessment in their classroom. Time shortage and large class size are one of the main reasons that teachers mentioned in their interview. Moreover, teachers decided their assessment types basing on its convenience for management.
Starting the year I felt very overwhelmed with the curriculum and seeked advice from a senior teacher, but still lacked understanding for myself. One of the most “hazy lessons” was a introducing ten frame lesson. We were learning how to use a ten frame by putting dot in it, and counting on. As the teacher I showed them the ten frame and put various numbers of dots in the frame and counted them. To start the lesson I did not gain the students attention and get them excited about this lesson, then I did not try to engage them in the lesson at all.
I made sure everyone understands and uses the grammar well. According to my tutor, despite the confusion, I created on MPF clarification. I achieved the aim of the lesson, and the language was well produced by the students. Thankfully, my detailed observation and awareness helped me to develop my lessons. Also, my friends usually asked for my feedback on their lessons.
The school is safe and welcoming to students as well as parents. Each class has its own classroom with adequate space to hold approximately thirty students. The classroom which the researcher used has fifteen students inclusive of a child with special needs. For this study, the participants were selected from a standard three class ranging from ages eight to ten years old. Often the classroom is frequently plagued by more minor kinds of misbehaviours which disrupt the flow of class activities which interferes with learning.
Teachers are faced with these challenges on a day-to-day basis and therefore need to slowly detach themselves from certain traditional teaching methods and attach themselves onto some modern teaching approaches which use technology in the classroom environment. There are a few step-by-step approaches teachers can use in order to step away from the traditional methods they are comfortable with, this will therefore all teachers to start creating advantages for their students as well as themselves instead of creating disadvantages by not incorporating technology in their lessons. Most teachers have a fear of incorporating technology in their lessons and that is why they tend to stick to their original teaching methods. This is step
But when all students are being taught the same thing there not all going to understand. I feel we need to try to individualize and specialize how these students are being taught. That way students aren 't saying to themselves “how come they understand but its not making any sense to me?” or “I am not fully understanding how to do this at all.” I can say personally that I have seen some schools taking action on this issue but not enough. This year in english we learned about a school that lets there students teach themselves. Sounds a little crazy doesn 't it?
According to Mariano & Kirby, “students in the multi-grade classes do not appear to learn more or less than their counterparts in the single-grade classes.” However, teachers who teaches in a multi-grade school will argue that their job is doubled and more technical been that they have received no training on such task. In addition, they said the curriculum does not cater for students in a multi-grade setting. Thus, when selecting teaching strategies they have to be mindful of the type of learners in the class, available resources which includes materials and the amount of time needed to do activities that are in the lessons. Even though teachers in single grade classes will oppose to the notion since they have to do the same thing when preparing lessons for their students. However, it is much more difficult in a multi-grade setting because one teacher has to attend to more than one
I’m only successful to cover one subtopic for today’s session. So, I’m not following my lesson plan that includes two subtopics need to be covered. Most of the students can understand what I taught them but it must be in slow pace learning. Moreover, I need to help them to recap back and memorize what they have learnt in math. For the next class, I need to talk loudly because students at the back can’t hear my voice clearly.
