There are many more trends but I chose these because they appealed to me most. Being a teacher as a facilitator means learning about student’s cultures and using teaching approaches that accommodates all learning styles. It also means using resources in the student’s communities. Culturally relevant and Responsive Teaching means displaying cultural competence, skills at teaching in cross cultural or multicultural settings. This allows students to relate content to their own
Teaching is changing quickly, so we must change with it. We need to learn how the students learn and teach in that way. We need to work with the different programs and embed technology as much as possible. We need to try new things, accept that not all will work, but at least be willing to try. My favorite quality of a good teacher is the love.
In regards to managing my classroom using rewards and punishments, I believe that they can be beneficial to an extent for students. The overuse of rewards or punishments conditions them rather than intrinsically motivates them. If students are always being punished, they are only behaving in fear of consequence. When punishments are used in moderation, students are able to comprehend the reasoning behind the repercussions of their actions, and will then be more inclined to behave based upon their full understanding rather than the superficial conditioning
Additionally, the tasks need to be constructive and interlinked and provide a challenge to the students while also acting as a motivation factor. The adopting of effective teaching to match the personal strengths of the students ensures that a student’s learning outcome is achieved Holistic assessment should be encouraged to understand what the learner has captured on a learning
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. 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 teachers and I will uphold the ideal of “cause beyond oneself” and work together with the school community to achieve success through thoughtful and purposeful practice. A supervisor that is a student and teacher at heart will create meaningful relationships with staff and community, show genuine concern for the teacher’s stage of development and professional growth, and be a continuous learner by example. Building relationships will create a strong platform for change. Supervision reminds me of teaching in in many ways. Educators create classrooms that become democratic communities by valuing thoughts and individual needs.
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 expert Fred Jones identifies "three zones of proximity" and discusses how knowing what they are can help you "work the crowd" in your own classroom.
The second standard in the InTASC standards is Learning Differences. It is stated as follows: “The teacher uses understanding of individual differences and diverse cultures and communities to ensure inclusive learning environments that enable each learner to meet high standards.” In this rationale, I will explain why it is important to know and understand this standard and how it can help me be a better teacher. I understand that all students are different. I will learn everything I can about my future students, so I can know how to teach for them.
Throughout this course we learnt and discussed many different philosophies, theories and concepts that we as teacher may use in our classrooms. As a teacher, children depend on us to help them succeed in their learning environment. Teacher’s will not all choose to all teach from the same philosophy or theory approach; whatever we decide to use within the classroom, the main focus should be on the child’s abilities to learn. Children all learn in their own time and in their own way. It is up to the teacher to maximize each child’s individual potential.
As a future teacher, I will always have good intentions for my students. I will recognize their abilities and encourage growth while having a positive approach. I will teach in a variety of ways that is beneficial to my students. If they are having difficulties learning the material, I will change my teaching strategies until progress is achieved. I will include every student; the quiet will be heard, the misunderstood will be redirected and the gifted will be rewarded.
Beliefs: We believe that advanced education will empower students to become leaders and responsible citizens. No child is an exception, no matter what race, sexuality or gender you are. In Golden Valley Academy, we believe that an emotionally, physically comfortable and safe environment will be the most effective way of learning. Learning is an active and lifelong activity that is unique for each member of society so we are willing to mold our way of teaching to help our students residing in this school. Curriculum activities are important as well, they are there to provide students countless of pathways to success.
A leader guides activities as a role model, consider personal and professional values, as well as demonstrate a personal and professional code of ethics. They treat people fairly with dignity and respect. Legal and contractual obligations must be filled and laws and procedures should be applied fairly, wisely, and considerately. A key role in educational leadership is to create an atmosphere that everyone wants to be a part of.
Cooperative learning also creates self-confidence in each student by allowing them to be a part of a group and working together to create a common goal. - Direct instruction. With its structure, direct instruction can be one of the most powerful tools in providing instruction, for both children with and without disability. We use procedures that are grounded and systematic, providing sound teaching and learning principles. We ensure that our teachers are organized with the content needed to provide a cohesive learning environment.
