It is no easy task to incorporate cultural knowledge throughout teaching. You must consciously think about multiculturalism as you interact with students and plan lessons and assignments (Gollnick & Chinn, 2012). Every student should be treated equally, but as educators we have to remember that every student is different and learns in different ways. By treating the students equally it helps promote the student’s learning ability and the development of respect and acceptance.
In order to comprehend the curriculum, you must understand that there needs to be a balance between content and skills which is achieved through ongoing discussions with other educators. Among the instruction portion it is key to know that the purpose is not to cover the curriculum, but uses the instruction flexibly to maximize learning for all students. And most controversially is the topic of grades. Two key factors are reviewed; first, grades should never come as a surprise, second, grading doesn’t improve learning but merely summarizes what has been learned. A recurring line that Cooper emphasizes throughout his work is that schools and teachers must maximize learning for all students.
• Furthermore, Piaget also talked about Discovery learning. This relates to the idea that children learn best through doing and actively exploring. This shall suit my subject area as in a Physical Education class, much practice are involved, this will best suit my students to be engaged thoroughly in class. • According to Piaget 's theory children should not be taught certain concepts until they have reached the appropriate stage of cognitive development.
The purpose of writing this paper is to inform the reader of my Personal Improvement Project (PIP) goal. My goal is to quit procrastinating on everything I do. This goal will help me occupationally, mentally, and emotionally. Occupationally I will do better in school and at my job. Mentally I won't be stressed out about all the work i have to do and/or catch up on.
In addition to mastering the material the learner, develop other essential skills that will help them to become more rounded individuals. For example, the teacher wants to teach the student about germination would guide the students in the steps to planting and nurturing the seed then ask them to write each day on what they see happening. The writer agrees with this view because real life experiences can build further individualism within children which would help them to make life connections as they
They are not focused on teaching us what to expect when we reach the age of adulthood, they are focused on teaching us about the subjects appointed by the Department of Education (DOE). This is the issue we face every day with the school system because although it is great to have a better understanding in these subjects, they should also focus on teaching us how to prepare for the real world. I strongly believe that they should be teaching us how to save money, how to be a better candidate for a job application, and how we are are going to need to be independent. Education should not just be about our academics or else we will never get anywhere. It should also be about how to prepare yourself for real-world problems.
The teaching-learning style conflict occurs when the learners’ learning style preferences do not match the teacher’s teaching style. There is no way for a teacher to adjust the lecture so that it suits all the students but a teacher’s task is to make it as richer as possible. The first step to adjusting the lecture to the learners is to get to know them. The teacher should be familiar with the learners’ needs and preferences. The best way for the teacher to get to know its students is through diaries.
To design effective teaching environments, it believes one needs a good understanding of what children already know when they come into the classroom. The curriculum should be designed in a way that builds on the pupil's background knowledge and is allowed to develop with them. Begin with complex problems and teach basic skills while solving these problems. The learning theories of John Dewey, Maria Montessori, and David A. Kolb serve as the foundation of the application of constructivist learning theory in the classroom. Constructivism has many varieties such as active learning, discovery learning, and knowledge building, but all versions promote a student's free exploration within a given framework or structure.
Ethical Consideration In this research, I’m not taking any advantage of easy-to-access individuals (such as children in this case ) simply because they are easy to access. The aim of this research is to provide Grade 3 ESL educators with an appropriate material to asses and grow their students’ writing works. I already took permission from the school department to do my research, it was approved by the School Director to make sure I’m accurately represent what I observed, and what I was told. Limitations of the
Because until we do so, these children will not enjoy their learning experiences. Children will not initiate tasks unless they are motivated and confident that they have caused the outcomes. As children look for peer models, peer – learning should be emphasized. The study also recommends that teachers and adults around the child do not make judgements on their performances. Rather correct their mistakes in a creative manner.
Describe how you would adapt the strategy or activity you identified to meet the needs of the student. To meet Julie 's learning needs, I will adapt the activities to engage her class participation in different ways, and simplify the lesson to fit her learning demands. I will give Julie a copy of reading material, so she can trace the text and follow my reading tempo when I am reading the text to the rest of the class. Because she is able to read text independently at grade level, she can also read the text by herself if she needs to review or revisit the content. Allowing Julie to read along helps improve her comprehension and brings an emphasis on her strength in learning.
From personal study music to historical music from an era the class is learning about, music can either be a great motivator for learning or a huge distraction. There have been many studies done over the years about the effect of music and learning. Music is a great a tool for the classroom because it helps motivation, concentration, control over the class. Music helps students who are easily distracted to focus on their classwork.
I will share each rubric with my students before their final drafts are due so they know exactly how they will be evaluated and to clear up confusion or uncertainty. According to Carbery and Leahy, there are many well-documented benefits to using rubrics including: • Helping students learn more effectively • Students understanding the expectations of the instructors • Grades becoming more meaningful • Making is explicit what students are expected to learn • Facilitating self-evaluation • Promoting deep learning While I did use the state-provided rubrics as models, I made several modifications to each rubric in order to make them directly applicable to my classroom assignments.
