Utilizing instructional planning means being knoledgable of the national, state, and local curricula and standards. It means using all resources, strategies, and data to meet the needs of all students. Another sub area that is very important would be differentiated instruction. This means providing students with content that challenges then and helps them to excel to new levels. It also means acknowledging all the different ways students learn.
Since the parents are busy at work and nobody is helping the child with his work, parents and teacher can come to a term whereby to sent the child to school a little earlier so that the teacher can help the child in his work. This would definitely help the child to cope back with his work and also to feel more confident and happy, as he would know that someone else is there to support and guide him instead. Young children need lots of scaffolding from adults around them. Just as Vygotsky’s approach has stated that the role of early years educators is crucial in scaffolding young children to increase their zone of proximal development (Gordon & Browne 2011). These
The challenging moments only make you strive more and more to be creative and find a solution in order to engage the children. I also believe that I have gained confidence in my leadership ability and my understanding for different methods of teaching and learning in order to tap into a child's unique ability to learn. The role of a teacher is incredibly diverse and that role must be willing to adapt to the situation and circumstances. As a teacher one of the main roles must be to successfully motivate learners in a safe environment whilst also adhering to regulations in place.
It is necessary for a teacher to have the students organized and transitions smoothly, but all the other little details, if thought of, help to make for a great lesson. A strong, outstanding teacher must manage the class efficiently and have some level of structure. An outstanding teacher needs to be able to analyze data, set goals, but most importantly have an inner drive to learn more, achieve the goal, and constantly adapt and do better.
Typically, young children especially those in primary schools simply do not learn what they are taught unless there is reinforcement. Assessment is used by educators so often to link their teaching to students’ learning (William, 2013). However, if it is done without any sort of feedback, it might not be useful at all. Teachers assess with the purpose of acknowledging strengths and weaknesses in a child in order to formally or informally instruct the child making room for improvement (Mikre, 2010). It is also important for it informs individual learning achievements to students themselves, their parents and education institutes.
The point of investigating is to steer children away from right-answer learning and towards questioning (Nine Strategies for Effective Instruction (n.d.). To summarize, a teacher's purpose is to guide their students and be a role model that students can strive to be like in the future. As teachers, we should encourage the growth and commitment of our students so that they can flourish as individuals and as the new generations of minds. Considering the qualities and characteristics of what an effective teacher should be; the importance of educators can be easily assessed in society. The words and actions as an educator will have an enduring effect on the students and the adults they will one day
Teacher observation is most successful when the teacher and observer work together and reflect on the teaching behaviour. Critical Elements of Teacher Observation as Professional Development * Ensuring school leaders advocate and support teacher observation as a valid form of professional development * Building a community of trust among faculty * Establishing a school-wide commitment to the approach * Separating observation from the teacher evaluation
Due to the impression the teacher has left on the student, the student would feel positively reinforced every time he or she approached the teacher. This would encourage the student to continue asking for help all thanks to the fact that the teacher applies polite speech in his or her language. This would come in handy, especially when the student would need a recommendation letter for
I can also compare my strengths and weaknesses to make a personal development plan to provide myself with motivation but this can also allow me to deliver a high quality service to the children and their parents during transitions, such as; delivering empathy, coping mechanisms and education. Consistency is key and I will be consistent with my behaviours and delivery to help the children progress and reach their full potential therefore I will continue carrying out observations to keep parents informed of their child’s progress when beginning school and throughout the year. I believe I have learned from my chosen theme on transitions. Beginning my essay I was nervous writing about transitions and this scared me from investigating different transitions that occur for children and how to support them.
• 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.
If a student is not making adequate progress, they try other interventions or ways of implementing instruction to help students to progress. Outstanding educators are flexible and can think quickly, they are able to adjust lessons to meet the needs and address the learning styles of their students as necessary. An outstanding teacher is firm but fair when disciplining students. These educators are always aware of what is going on in their classrooms and monitor situations as needed to quickly and effectively keep things from getting out of control. Outstanding educators get to know their students, and show them respect and kindness.
This gives the teacher and the paraeducator the opportunity to discuss the performance in real time. It allows them to view it and make suggestions immediately. Then these suggestions could be followed by reenacting the scenario implementing the new strategy suggested by the teacher. This also will help the paraeducator get a clearer picture of exactly what the teacher is wanting.
What are the weaknesses of this assessment tool? It is critical that observations be free of bias and objective, a skill that needs to be developed and can be a challenge for some teachers. • How do you use the results of the assessment? Repetition and multiple opportunities for learning are important for all children, so offering different activities for learning concepts and skills benefit all children, there is no negative impact when providing activities that support skills repeatedly.
