As a teaching assistant you can give children and young people the tools to building relationships by modelling appropriate behaviour. To encourage trust and understanding, it is necessary to ensure that children understand instructions. Whether for an activity or a fire drill, any miscommunication of instructions can lead to misunderstanding and feelings of unease. When giving instructions it is important to make them simple and concise so that children can remember them. It is really useful to ask concept checking questions after giving instructions to ensure that everyone understands, and then if necessary, repeat the instructions in a different way.
The behaviour we observed is models. In social life, children encompassed with effective people like parents, siblings, friends, tv characters and teachers etc. They attract to certain people and encode the behaviour and later imitate the behaviour interest to them regardless whether it is appropriate or inappropriate for them. MEDITATIONAL PROCESS: it is referred as a bridge between traditional learning theory and cognitive approach. Bandura believes that individuals are effective "informative processors" and always anticipate the connection between their behaviour and its outcome and such factor involved in the learning process to evaluate if the new response is accomplished.
Students who are allowed to explore, empathize, question, hypothesize, conceptualize, experiment, and evaluate throughout their own learning become productive community members" (Hummell 5). Allowing children to learn to think critically helps them to solve problems and have a logical argument about something they believe is true. Applying critical thinking into schools gives a child a chance to make a difference. Also, Elizabeth McKinstry agrees with Hummell in challenging the next generation to think for themselves. McKinstry writes about how Common Core education helps children become more interactive in the world and teaches them how to apply the knowledge they have learned in life.
Both adults and children would be attracted to this story as a buyer. The child would be hooked in by the simplicity of the drawings as it is reflective of their own skill level. The title alone is enough to capture the attention of both an adult and child. “The Day the Crayons Quit” would strike curiosity in any passerby by posing the question, “Why DID the crayons quit?” The humor of the story makes this an entertaining read for both children and adults. This is the kind of story that parents would enjoy reading to their kids day after day.
I believe this type of well-organized schedule helps the children to know what is expected of them. Also, the hands on approach between the students and the teacher allows for individualized learning for the children. Finally, I found their purposely using open ended questions to encourage the children into thinking for themselves during the Choice Time to be an excellent teaching method. 2. Provide a descriptive personal or professional observation that is similar to the concept you selected from the video (use initials in place of a child’s name).
Skinner, and Albert Bandura contributed greatly to the behaviourist perspective of development. Behaviourists believe the child’s environment shapes learning and behaviour of each individual child like our human behaviour, development, and learning are thought of as reactions to the environment around us. This perspective leads many families, schools, and educators to assume that young children develop new knowledge by reacting to their surroundings. Many teachers and parents believe that young children learn best by role activities, such as reciting the alphabet over and over, copying letters, and tracing numbers. In the classrooms this shows effective as young children are expected to sit at tables and listen to their teachers speak or write on a white board.
The self concept is the basic representation in children 's minds of who they are and what they are like. Social learning theorists emphasize that the self concept is built upon the identification with role models, an assessment of self worth, and a preferred pattern in relating to the external world (Carver and Scheier, 1992). Children learn to interact through modelling and imitation of others, particularly role models. Anyone may be a role model for the child in early childhood whom the child admires. The influence of a role model can affect individuals’ personality, ambitions or interest.
Giving choices and allowing children to choose their daily activities helps to build autonomy. Hedrick (1996) suggest that providing choices for children is a fundamental aspect of high-quality early childhood curriculum. It is also cited in as one of the principles of developmentally appropriate practice which states, “Following their own interests, children choose among various activities…” (Bredekamp & Copple, 1996). As we provide children with choices in their daily activity, educators need to understand the importance of the choices given to children in their class. Such classroom set up reflects a child - centered approach rather than teacher - centered.
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 motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
Part B Introduction The importance of Geometry Children need a wealth of practical and creative experiences in solving mathematical problems. Mathematics education is aimed at children being able to make connections between mathematics and daily activities; it is about acquiring basic skills, whilst forming an understanding of mathematical language and applying that language to practical situations. Mathematics also enables students to search for simple connections, patterns, structures and rules whilst describing and investigating strategies. Geometry is important as Booker, Bond, Sparrow and Swan (2010, p. 394) foresee as it allows children the prospect to engage in geometry through enquiring and investigation whilst enhancing mathematical thinking, this thinking encourages students to form connections with other key areas associated with mathematics and builds upon students abilities helping students reflect
