More than dearth of teaching skills, lack of willingness to learn new things proves detrimental for teachers. By keeping themselves abreast of the contemporary trends and aching for learning innovative ideas, teachers are able to draw students attention. Things go awry for teachers when they deliver lessons without trying to know if students are really interested to listen to them. All of a teachers efforts should be directed towards keeping the interests of students alive and catering to the needs and requirements of students. This is how you also stop panning your lessons based on your whimsical ideas.
An example where my learning style is portrayed strongly is when I am given an assignment to complete. I prefer to have many sources of information when researching, and produce many drafts before handing in my completed assignment. In contrast, I am uncomfortable with the idea of having a deadline to reach as I fear rushing through information without studying it entirely. Overall, in my opinion learning styles impact immensely on an individual’s learning ability. The more familiar one is with his/her style the more successful they will be.
Some argue that this new technology promotes short attention spans and lack of appreciation for the historical arts (Source E). Without the correct guidance, this statement may hold true for some students, but if teachers recognize that technology, like anything else, must be monitored and used only in proper context, that danger disappears. Technology can even be blended with traditional learning in order to maximize efficiency. Students could be asked to read a work of classic literature such as Shakespeare and later be asked to post on an online discussion board about their interpretations and reading experiences. In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information.
Students take the views of teachers to suck up to them, which causes them to get lost in their own thought and opinion. This leads to the controversy on whether universities are teaching the students what they need to be taught and how effective they are disciplining the students. In William Deresiewicz’s essay, he expresses that solitude is the very aspect of leadership. Solitude means being isolated from human interaction. Leadership means having the
This shows that particularly for students we find that a lot of the time teachers tell us what to do or think unintentionally, so it can be hard to distinguish if our thoughts are truly personal or shared with, and from, the others around us. We even see this within the IB education; the IB education is designed to encourage individual thought (personal knowledge), yet the curriculum ironically sometimes results in the reverse as students can simply subscribe to shared knowledge for fear of “getting it wrong” and receiving poor
As it stands, my connection powers are limited because I do not use the correct conflict style and tone of voice during negotiations. This not only complicates my team dynamics, but also damages my ability to build bonds that benefit the mission. In future negotiations, I plan to hear the interest of the other party more than their position. From there, I can move to fuse the outlook of both parties to meet both our interests. Although correcting my conflict style is my first my solution, the next step is to challenge myself to teach the lessons I learn to my junior
The teaching-learning style conflict occurs when the learners’ learning style preferences do not match the teacher’s teaching style. There is no way for a teacher to adjust the lecture so that it suits all the students but a teacher’s task is to make it as richer as possible. The first step to adjusting the lecture to the learners is to get to know them. The teacher should be familiar with the learners’ needs and preferences. The best way for the teacher to get to know its students is through diaries.
However, considering that each student has an individual learning style, I have acknowledged that developing a flexible teaching style is vital to enhancing teaching and learning experience. Consequently, the feedback has prompted me to reflect on my practice. The student’s comment may not directly refer to my teaching method, however she suggested an approach that was different to my style. It was a struggle to change considering that the feedback was given in broad context. It felt like I was heading into a totally different and vague
On the opposite side of the spectrum, problem posing encourages communication. In this style of education, there is an evident student-teacher relationship in which both the student and the teacher are being taught. Students are being challenged by the teachers, but at the same time, there is a conversation involving feedback allowing the teachers to grow (Freire 222). These forms of education contrast dramatically, however there may be situations in which one form is more useful than the other, for instance in a STEM class versus a humanities course. While banking may have its benefits in some areas of study, it often leads to boredom and a lack of interest for students in an environment that should be fostering knowledge and thinking.
In addition to that, the teacher may speak or read too fast for the level of the learner`s understanding. As a result learners suffer from lack of knowledge while all the due requirements at school are provided by the parents such as fees. It therefore implies that while interpersonal communication is vital to teachers, the competence of the teacher may determine the academic progress. Conclusively communicating interpersonally is necessary to a primary school teacher as it enables them to fulfill psychological, social, influential and informative support upon learners and workmates. On the other hand it may also increase cases of child abuse, distort information through gestures and may also be affected by the teacher`s ability to communicate
Since it is difficult to remove tenured teachers, tenure encourages school administrators to take more care when making the promotions. In contrast, tenure promotes administrators to dismiss under-performing teachers before they achieve tenure (ProCon.org). Administrators try to be very careful when they promote teacher tenure, but there are many regulations to take into
This motivates me to become a part of the education field, because caring teachers are much needed in area like this. Teaching is a privilege because it is an opportunity to provide students with a blessing of knowledge that they may not be able to obtain from home. Minorities from low-income areas most likely do not live in the best conditions, therefore they need to utilize the classroom as a safe haven. Knowing that these student probably cannot afford to get a tutor for the SATs or even study properly because they do not understand the context, makes me want to be a teacher who would offer tutoring sessions for free, find
Often students do not know how to reach out, who to talk to or how to respond to a conflict. For this reason conflicts escalate, even though there are people who are able to train teachers and peers to handle such conflict in healthy way. The traditional school conflict resolution method, where adult decides the outcome for the student is becoming inefficient, so peer mediation provides the student with an opportunity to talk it out and resolve the conflict they. The students see the value n the program, they want to learn how to act when in conflict, beside just with anger and save valuable relationships. This peer mediation program would be effective by reducing violence and fights.
Benefits are 1) It causes leaders to collaborate amongst schools and districts resulting in promoting new teaching strategies and ideas to improve education for students. 2) It helps the leader gauge learning by the establishment of minimum teaching standards for all students at each grade level and 3) It gives the leader a method to identify non effective teaching practices and/or teachers. The cons on the leadership is 1) It forces the leader to condense content and teacher must cut and/or condense because of lack of classroom time, 2) It doesn 't give the leadership flexibility in consideration for learning disabled in testing scores 3) Because of the inflexibility and the condensation of the curriculum it leads to a loss of creativity and little depth of understanding in the
