They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
Page 32 of our classroom management book states, “Our goal as teachers should be creating an environment where children want to be and learn” and I could not agree more. I want my classroom to be a place where students’ thoughts and ideas are valued and where all voices are heard, in one way or another. I find the emotional environment of a classroom to be extremely important, especially in younger grades, because it can assist students in creating a positive outlook on school, for that year and for years to
He also states that during the process of growth and change, training is the easy part of effective professional development. Jacob Kounin turned his attention on a study of the practical problem of classroom management, from the standpoint of technology. But Fred Jones talks about tools for teaching implements response to intervention where it is a multi-level system that focuses on the prevention of learning problems. It is designed to develop capacity for identifying, adapting and sustaining effective instructional practices. Dr. Jones has developed methods of classroom management that are both powerful and affordable for all teachers.
Classroom management refers to the wide variety of skills and techniques that teachers use to keep students organized, orderly, focused, attentive, on task, and academically productive in class. Researches that were carried out over the past years tell us that the teacher is the most important factor affecting the student achievement. Teachers play various roles in the classroom, but the most important one is that of classroom manager. In classrooms where students are disrespectful, and no rules to guide behavior, chaos becomes the norm, and consequently both the teacher and the student suffer. In contrast, well-managed and well-organized classrooms provide an environment conducive to teaching and learning.
Communication with students I chose this criterion because teachers communicate with students for several independent, but related, purposes: they convey that teaching and learning are purposeful activities; they make that purpose clear to students, and they provide clear directions for classroom activities so that students know what to do; when additional help is appropriate, teachers model these activities. ---One example of a good classroom practise is: In the course of a presentation of content, the teacher asks students, “Can anyone think of an example of that?” 2. Using Questioning and Discussion Techniques I chose this criterion because it is important that questioning and discussion be used as techniques to deepen student understanding rather than serve as recitation, or a verbal “quiz” and because high-quality questions encourage students to make connections among concepts or events previously believed to be unrelated and to arrive at new understandings of complex material.---One example of a good classroom practise is: The teacher poses a question, asking every student to write a brief response and then share it with a partner, before inviting a few to offer their ideas to the entire
The findings in the study can serve as an additional guide to principals and school heads in their management and supervision. The result of this study could serve to improve programs for school advancement. The study can help promote a thorough consideration of the relationships of the variables in this research in enhancing a positive learning atmosphere. Teacher Education Institutions. Teacher education institutions can use the result of the study to consider the relevance of education students’ hyperactivity in their professional education subjects like in the principles of teaching.
Creating an environment where holding a high academic standard of learning comes from incorporating techniques that benefit the classroom as a whole. Observing educators during instructional times ensues reflection on one’s own teaching. The various teaching approaches in Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion series include effective ways to engage learners, manage behavior, and set high academic standards. Techniques such as “Cold Call,” “Everybody Writes,” “Strong Voice,” and “100 Percent” all prove that using routines in the classroom the learning process. If utilized, these systems advance the effectiveness of learning, and manage behaviors in a professional setting.
and design instruction that develops students' self-perceptions of their academic skills. And by large will lead a way for in making Quality primary education a dream come true. The present study titled ‘Teacher Efficacy in Relation to Teacher Motivation and Personality of Primary School Teachers is a survey study. In this study the researcher has made an earnest attempt to find out the relationship between Teacher Efficacy and its dimensions with Teacher Motivation and Personality of Primary School Teachers. This chapter presents the explanation and discussion on the above issues under the sub-title theoretical frame work, present status of the study, related to Teacher Efficacy, Teacher Motivation and Personality.
Within education, professional learners often rely on the leader to provide a framework and establish an environment conducive to a high level of intensity. Teachers within professional learning communities rely on leaders to help plan timetables, provide additional resources, and locate expert connections to support professional learning. It is in these way that servant-leaders are serving individual teachers and groups of teacher ongoing. One can also assume that through professional learning, servant-leaders in education will be equally concerned with serving students. Robinson (2011) confirms that through leading professional learning, student achievement will be significantly impacted (p.8-9).
Students go to their teachers for guidance and support, therefore it is imperative that teachers are good listeners and display their leadership skills. Being a leader also means you utilize proper classroom management techniques. The most important part of an outstanding teacher is having passion for what they do. This
