According to Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (2001), interventions that took place obtained a holistic, whole-school approach where educational content was used to allow students to develop a social and emotional standpoint of the issue, bullying. The Australian Government also provided support and professional guidance to teachers and other school staff on how best to maintain a positive school climate. The Australian Government and council affiliates have suggested many campaigns to help with the rising issue such as ‘The Safe Schools Anti-Bullying Initiative (Safe Schools)’ (2015), a campaign aimed to help understand and address bullying by training school staff, sending professionals to give advice and support for school staff, and by promoting youth leadership. Bullying. No Way!
In order to develop a child’s identity in accordance with both the EYLF and an Aboriginal perspective whilst also supporting children’s awareness of Aboriginal cultures and practices through a curriculum that supports children in learning about the land, earth, plants and animals, it is also important how we as educators will support this knowledge to grow (McKnight, et al., 2010). According to Harrison (2010), Aboriginal history plays a key role not only with Aboriginal children but also with non-Aboriginal children and the importance that everyone should learn about the importance of Aboriginal history. As well as educators developing a curriculum that incorporates the Aboriginal community in their area so as to include local histories, local
ESA #6A Task 4 4(a) Review and evaluate building-based policies and procedures relevant to the protection of the welfare and safety of students, staff, and visitors within the selected school. Buckeye Career Center has a variety of policies and procedures dealing with safety of individuals on the property. The procedures, defined both in the public student handbook and the private safety plan, will be reviewed in that order. The first safety policy listed in the student handbook is the safety test. As BCC provides training in vocations that have inherent risks, all students must complete a safety unit at the beginning or school and pass a safety test for their lab with a 100%.
One of the two educational goals outlined in the Melbourne Declaration (2008) is that “All young Australians are to become...Active and informed citizens.” With this in mind, this unit of work is designed to foster student’s learning in the concept of introduced species. It will open students’ minds to some of the ideas and controversy surrounding introduced species today; what are some of the dangers, what went wrong in the past, how are we still feeling the effects now, how something in one country won’t necessarily work in another. The key outcome that this unit is based around is GE2-2 and it fits into the Stage Two curriculum under the content ‘The Earth’s Environment’. This unit will act as a precursor to students exploration of globalisation in Stage Three where in they will discover some of the wonderful things that can, has and will come out of it.
We communicate daily with *Jacks mother through a home/school diary. At the beginning of each new term the class teacher, along with members of the SLT and *Jacks mother come up with new targets for his IEP (individual Education Plan). (Book 1 ST8 2.2) Our school likes to follow the saying: “It is every child’s right to be heard, listened to and taken seriously and to be consulted.’’ We believe that every child is entitled to an education no matter what background they are from. We encourage our staff to listen to the suggestions and needs of our children and take all matters seriously, building an inclusive community on trust and self-worth. The Salamaca statement and framework for action on special needs education 1994 (UNESCO, 1994) also states ‘Each child’s learning needs are different’ (Book 1:ST6 CH2:PG157-158) As an inclusive school that is why we adapt our lessons, So *Jack so can cope.
However, any school event that includes parents have to be done and announced prior to the event. Therefore, emails, newsletters, sign-up sheets, or phone call reminders can be given a month in advance. (Scully, Barbour, & King, 2015) A great tool teachers can use to assist the parents with academic involvement is to always have an open door policy. Teachers should encourage all parents to volunteer or advocate for all students. Reminding parents that fifteen minutes you spent with your child or someone else’s might change the child’s outlook on their education.
Accreditation Agency: All Klein ISD schools are accredited by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The Texas Education Agency is the state agency that oversees primary and secondary public education. It is headed by the commissioner of education. The mission of TEA is to provide leadership, guidance and resources to help schools meet the educational needs of all students. The curriculum followed by TEA is periodically updated by the State Board of Education and is known as TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and skills).
High-quality early childhood education experiences have the potential to improve young children’s early academic skills and learning-related behaviours, especially for children from disadvantaged backgrounds (Burchinal et al., 2015). In an effort to address these issues and formally incorporate the early childhood sector into Australia’s educational system, the Commonwealth Government has, in recent years, introduced sweeping reforms designed to ‘professionalize’ early childhood education and care provision (DEEWR, 2014). These reforms were designed to replace the disparate licensing and regularity system previously administered by state and territory governments, which had impacted negatively on the overall structure of early childhood service provision in Australia (DEEWR,
It takes a “village” approach. Melania explains the importance of promoting peace, human rights, and human dignity. “If we do not advocate a love of country to our children and the generations to come, then why would our children grow up to fight for their country’s founding principles and moral truths? If we do not teach our children the importance of helping those less fortunate — wherever they may be — then why would they become caring adults who dedicate themselves to charity? If we do not ensure that our youth are to find a nation of community to reach beyond their own backyards, their own schools and their own town halls, then why would we expect to see a new generation of leaders with a moral conscience that includes all of humanity?” (Melania Trump) It is our responsibility as adults, to teach and enforce these lessons to ensure the success of our children and their
(Bismark, 2010) Article 23 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child demands for effective right to education in a way that is useful to the child attaining their fullest possible social integration and individual growth including his/her cultural and spiritual development(DCYA,2016). The challenge of cultural diversity and identity in the education
Hello Dr. Sweetman, Amy and Fadia, welcome to my poster presentation. Dr. Clark (2010) once said, “The power of one practitioner’s expertise is converted into fuel for effective consumer advocacy in the future”. I am going to demonstrate this power, which is essential to fulfill American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) Centennial Vision. My project is a program proposal. The purpose of this project is to provide training for elementary school teachers on the topic of teaching kindergarten to 2rd grade students with handwriting difficulties or any student at risk of difficulty with handwriting.
Conclusion Eliminating or minimizing bullying at Lakewood Elementary and placing the focus point on a more conclusive objective such as the point system will enrich these children with a sense of responsibility and amour-propae when it comes to behavior in school.

4a – After the delivering lessons, Miss Hannan assessed the instructional session and provided suggestions to improve upcoming lessons. 4b – Miss Hannan collaborated with the cooperating teacher for an efficient and effective process of recording and maintaining accurate assessment for each student. 4c – Miss Hannan described that parents and teachers are “ultimate teammates” in a student’s education.

I also provide parents with pictures and descriptions of all the different activities that we do in our classroom. I try to explain to the families about what their child liked and disliked about each activity. Another avenue that we like to do to keep families in the loop about what goes on in our classroom is our newsletter that we send out to parents that has information about their child and what we have done in our classroom. • CG 4.2 How do you ensure that you are aware of what 's happening in each child 's home life?
