During these peer interactions, the teacher can see how the children organise their learning and how they deal with challenges. Play also presents a number of opportunities for learning, whereby engaging with the pupils in their interaction the educator would pick up ways of how to extend their play and assess their learning in a more formative and indirect manner. Moreover, we also found that it is more effective to see the children in their naturalistic setting without being obtrusive, hence informal observations are key as not to disturb the children’s ordinary routine. Observing the children’s guardians could also be a window towards finding out what motivates the children to learn, Maccoby
Guidance and Redirection as a curriculum Guidance and redirection foster socialization and strengthen security by providing children with boundaries and choices with set limits and guide behaviour. When children are consistently led toward safe boundaries, they build trust (Erik Erikson- psychosocial theory). Redirecting behaviours teaches children what to do, rather than what not to do. As children make more positive choices, they develop their self-esteem. Use words with every child to state the class rules that help guide behaviours: “Hitting hurts – hands are for touching,” “No biting!
Educators will evaluate your child’s capacity to comprehend the coursework, successfully study and pass tests, meet in-class and homework expectations and adjust to different teaching styles. Additionally, your child must demonstrate that he is on track academically with other students in his grade level. Most children can catch up quickly if they’re behind a little bit, but the educators will evaluate any academic gaps and the placement options to ensure your child can successfully close the gap and fit in academically with his
Engaging in scientific method means you will have to observe. Through observation, an idea has been formulated already but still needs more research about it. Only then, you can form a hypothesis regarding all the collected data. To test the hypothesis' credibility is through experiment. If the results did align with the hypothesis, only then will it be considered as a verified data.
26). Even though we do not know the age of this child, he may very well be in school or attend a child-care center, and the connection between the child/parents and teachers could affect the child's behavior and development in either positive or negative ways. Our course commentary for this lesson states that parents who are interested in and involved in their children's school tend to have children who are better in school (Barry, 2012). To promote favorable development/behavior and relieve some of the parent's stress, the parents may consider how involved they are in school, and become aware of any issues that take place in school that may be a reason for the child not wanting to share. Having a better understanding on if this behavior is happening at home, or at school as well, may narrow down how often the behavior is occurring, and if there is something at school that is triggering the behavior to carry over into the home.
The students taking the test really benefitting from it. For example, " It helps educators become aware of children’s strengths and areas of their learning and development in which they may require further support and nurturing" (McLachlan). McLachlan is trying to explain with assessments given to the students it gives the teacher the opportunity to see each child 's strengths and each child 's weaknesses. Assessments tell the teacher what the teacher needs to work on again and what they do not need to work on. This is valuable for both the teacher and child because both are setting goals and developing the brain by the student is gaining more knowledge and getting tested to see how well they contained the material.
As the Child flows into Primary education, we can introduce the special needs assiatant.The special needs assistant is an invaluable resource for the child who needs a little extra help to get through the school day. The special needs assistant has responbilitly for assisting the child while the teacher takes full responsibility for the direction and content of the child’s learning. The role of the special needs assistant can also be valuable for initiating relationship and other social structures and encouraging a positive environment following into Secondary Education. Adults with Down's syndrome can take Further education and can also gain employment. Many young adults with Down's syndrome pursue further education.
their attitudes and learning style •Any patterns in behaviour. A high-quality learning environment (indoor and outdoor), therefore in order to observe children in naturally occurring situations and self-initiated play. In full-day care settings, there will also be opportunities for observation during daily routines, for example, as the child enters nursery, snack or meal times. The practitioners working with young children should always be aware of significant information that children communicate to us through their words or actions. Recorded observations- many observations are not all written down and much useful information will be exchanged verbally through informal discussions between practitioners and parents.
The net result is less wasted instructional time and a simplified way of timeline management. It also gives parents a good idea of how their children are doing as compared to students across the country and locally. This can also allow students’ progress to be tracked over the years. However, when this test is as a tool or indicator to evaluate education performance and to have some sort of accountability for schools and teachers. The problem arises when teachers have "added" pressure of making sure everyone succeeds because of these tests on top of the normal stress and pressure of educating their students.
“Equality is not always about treating everyone the same – it is about treating people in such a way that the outcome for each person can be the same.” (Equality and Intercultural, no date). As shown to us by the NCCA, (2007) When an environment in which both a parent and the school come together to develop and to encourage a success for a child, has a long-lasting foundation that will help both the school grow to become better but also have an impact on the child’s learning. A parent’s involvement affects the want of achievement and identity from the child. This is how patterns and amounts of involvement vary across cultural, economic, and community backgrounds and range widely in planes of development. Inequality in a setting has a major
