The learners need to be considered which is of the greatest value for teaching and learning an explicit curriculum or an implicit curriculum. Implicit, or hidden, curriculum also refers to lessons that students take from teachers' attitudes and the school environment. This learning can be either conscious or unconscious. For instance, the location of a teacher's desk at the front of a classroom underscores his authority and positions him as the center of the class's attention. A school's rigid class schedule may make students perceive learning as an inflexible and authoritative process.
Culture influences each and every life stage of a person. Hence culture plays a very important role in his stage of education. In some situations cultural difference makes some constraints to students with diverse culture. It is essential a culture based teaching strategy to overcome these problems. Culturally Responsive Pedagogy is pedagogy which emphasizes the cultural background of the learner, can helps to overcome
According to Anderson & Madigan (2005), the first strategy or step that should be taken in creating a culturally responsive learning environment is teacher self-assessment. A teacher needs to assess their personal culture to learn how their own values and lifestyles may create biases towards other cultures. Once a teacher has familiarized themselves with their own prejudices, they can work on ways to embrace different cultures and create a learning environment that encourages success for diverse students.

Due to the fact that the curriculum, instruction, assessment, school funding, and desegregation aren’t made for ALL students to succeed we as educators must use what we know about our students, education, and history to inform our teaching. It is important to use the experiences and culture of our students (getting to know them) to make our instruction more relatable. In classrooms students shouldn’t feel like their stories aren’t heard. Educators must construct a positive classroom environment so that students will feel comfortable being themselves and taking risks with their language (ELL) which includes ALL students not just one population. This might mean making changes or adding to the existing curriculum.
You want to be patient with them and be consistent and have a trusting relationship with them because, if they are suffering depression, anger issues, then they think think that the teacher is gonna failed them. It is best to have a teacher tutor them for whatever is their weakness that needs to be worked on for the children. They want to help them as the best that they possibly can to help them pass, but we want them to know that we care about who you are and we just want to help you to learn something before you move on to the next grade and for the future. All children need stability to have
In addition to this, behavior management issues are of critical importance for the teachers of English language learners with special needs. Such teachers must know the needs related to children’s disability, possess cultural and linguistic knowledge. Unfortunately, in the majority of cases, lack of knowledge and little understanding about second language acquisition provide inappropriate educational services. Teachers do not fully understand the influence of native language on intellectual and cognitive development and the impact of cultural differences on students’ performance. Most commonly, ELLs with and without disabilities are often taught by teachers with insufficient experience and qualifications.
Students would believe this since they may feel that their teachers may give them so much homework with such a little time period. Some might even have sports events of other school related things that may not give them much to any time to do their homework. As this does seem like a problem, teens should work this out with their teachers rather than going against what their teachers would want. In other cases, students also say that they feel the need to cheat because teachers and students have high expectations for them and want them to get good grades, putting too much pressure on them. “Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers).
Classroom management is a term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students. It also implies the prevention of disruptive behavior. It is one of the most difficult tasks or aspect of teaching for many teachers. This single skill has heavily contributed to teacher stress and burnout (Gordon, 2002, Jepson & Forrest, 2006), overall teacher efficacy(Caprarait al., 2003; Edwards it al., 2002), students achievement and teacher performance in the classroom (Edwards it al. ,2002; Milner, 2002; Pavlov, 2007), and has commonly been a major concern of principals regarding new teachers (Principal Perspective, 2004; Williams).
ABSTRACT: Professional development generally refers to ongoing learning opportunities available to teachers and other education personnel through their schools and other means of social interaction. Productive professional development is mostly visible as vital to school success and teacher satisfaction, but it has also been maligned for its expenditure, roughly determined goals, and the lack of data on resulting teacher and school improvement that characterizes many efforts. With schools these days facing an attire of complex challenges from working with an increasingly diverse population of students, to integrating new technology in the classroom, to meeting rigorous academic standards and goals—observers continue to stress the need for teachers
Educators worried that Common Core assessment in the classroom would take away from instructional time for students. Teachers also wondered if in early education, children would be tested like older children through pencil/paper or computer-driven assessment. Another point brought out by teachers was if results of Common Core assessment would be used for high-stakes including accountability systems for teachers and programs. Lastly, there was the question of whether or not decisions about students, mainly retention in grade, may be based solely on the results of Common Core assessments. To answer these questions, Common Core researchers reminded teachers that assessment is an ongoing process and in order to improve teaching and learning, teachers must continually engage in assessment for the purpose of improving teaching and learning.
Effective communication is a vital part of your role as a teaching assistant. Children and young people learn to communicate through the responses of others, if they do not feel that their contribution is valued, they are less likely to initiate communication themselves. Eï¬€ective communication is a vital part of your role as a teaching assistant. Children learn to communicate through the responses of others: if they do not feel what they are saying is valued by others because they have not be listened to or misunderstood, they are less likely to initiate communication or contribute to class discussion. Children of all ages need to feel that they have a voice and an opinion and that they are valued.
