Teachers need to be self-reflective and to think about our own teaching. After each lesson I put the following questions to myself: Was the lesson effective?, What were my strengths and weaknesses?, How could it be improved? What follows are some of my reflections on various important items in my training period from the observations and own experiences carried out in the classrooms: -I have met lots of children in my internships and that is awesome for me. All the classrooms contain pupils with different abilities, different attitudes to English language and different styles of learning. I think that it is positive but also it is more difficult to respond to their different needs and interest.
After this learners will be asked to present what they have done to the teacher so that some correction will be made before it can be discussed by the whole class. He says this helps a dyslexic in such a way that it builds their confidence and self-esteem. They feel like they are on the same track with other learners hence they will be able to work hard every day to achieve their goal. For example, when it’s time for spelling he gives his learner words that are going to be discussed to go and do them at home. This means that parents will have more time to help the learner.
Today, learning advances happen constantly in society, education and technology; how can teachers keep up state with the art education to excel with these advances? Parents and teachers tell students from a tender age that they need a good education to excel in life, but they are not getting taught how to be successful outside of a classroom. Lifelong learning is known as “the continuous pursuit of informal learning opportunities throughout someone’s life to foster the constant development of knowledge need for the world we live in” (“Lifelong Learning”). Lifelong learning opens student’s doors to earn certifications that can better their career employment after high school. When a individual have a certification or qualification for a job
All teachers have expectations of the children within their class, and these notions of what children can achieve on a daily and long-term basis, can have both direct and indirect effects on the children. Additionally, the term ‘teacher expectations’, or lack of, has been known to inspire honourable resentment for teachers’ purported role in creating educational inequalities (Rubie-Davies, 2015 & 2018). Dweck (2015) reveals that, all too often, when teachers have a fixed-mind set about certain groups of children and decide they are not ‘capable’ of challenge because their intelligence is fixed, steps are rarely taken to help them develop their fullest potential. This echoes my mentoring class teacher’s comments regarding our low-ability group not being capable of understanding remainders in division. Teacher expectations can have profound effects upon children and their academic achievement, and there is a wealth of literature and research available to substantiate this belief.
Classroom Management A classroom teacher must be knowledgeable not only in the subject that he/she will be teaching but also in classroom management. Classroom management is not an easy thing to do. Teachers who were just new in the profession were always wondering how could they manage their students effectively or how could they manage their classroom adequately? Teachers who planned daily classroom activities are more likely execute their lessons excellently because students’ attention and interest were set the way the teachers expected them to be. A well
Classroom administration is the procedure by which educators and schools make and keep up suitable conduct of understudies in classroom settings. At the point when classroom-administration systems are executed successfully, instructors minimize the practices that obstruct learning for both individual understudies and gatherings of understudies, while expanding the practices that encourage or improve learning. Classroom administration is truly hard and numerous scholars discuss it and each is not quite the same as the other where every scholar has his/her own thoughts and considerations. Some of them are specified beneath. In Redl and Wattenberg 's theories, they incorporate gathering flow, poise, the delight torment guideline, and comprehension
One way of doing this is to monitor the progress of the students from low-achieving to high-achieving and making sure the student has the opportunity to grow. Another way is to use the data collected to help make the decision on what type of resources the student need to help them improve in the classroom. The teacher would also need to talk with the families and allow them to see the progress their child is making and celebrate the student's growth. Lastly, a teacher would want to make sure the student is always being challenged to improve even more on their
It was through this person and class, I ‘ve grasped that people learn in many different ways, and by embracing the importance of this learning style’s for myself as well as in teaching exerts a powerful influence on a child’s ablity to do well in school. The first major task was to discover the way I learn. This was hard for me I do not like to evaluate my self but in order to be a good teacher I must attain the abilty to self-evalute in order to grow. I took two days and really examined my learning style and came to these conclusions about myself: •
It is a person who dedicates time for other people and is happy doing it. For me to become a great teacher, I need to have cleared my aims or objectives, have effective lesson plans, needs analysis from my students and be able to continue learning and keep updated. I need to be organized. Strengths and Weaknesses During my first teaching practice, I was so worried about the time and about if students asked something that I did not to answer. Definitely something this is a big weakness, but we as teachers experienced this situation and I understand that is not wrong to don’t know something at the moment.
Or having enough knowledge on the subject you are teaching? For me being a teacher is being able to connect with the students both physically and mentally. That every time you go to their classrooms I am equip with the necessary skills of a teacher that I will be able to impart the knowledge they need to learn. At first I was nervous because they might not participiate because Im just also a student just like them. And that they may not respect and listen to me.
