The Key Stage outcome of the framework emphasizes the need to build confidence and social skills in their early years to prepare them for lifelong learning (MOE, 2003). Hence, preschool programs focus on helping children in developing skills needed for school readiness to primary school. Teachers provide opportunities for children to experience real-life situations using pretend play to encourage higher order thinking and enhance problem solving and social skills (Lee, 2012). Schools arrange for visits to primary school, inviting Primary 1 children to talk about they experiences, reading stories about ‘starting school’ and teachers introduce routines of formal schooling. There is also collaboration between preschool and primary school to further cater the needs of children during transition process (Marjory,
There is an ongoing debate on whether this curriculum is beneficial or harmful to students. As the years have progressed it has been found that the school curriculum has a negative impact on a child’s development. Child Development Process To fully understand the way a child develops in school and how common core is matching that; the process in which children learn needs to be observed. Kathy Sylva, a professor at Oxford University, found that children develop best in preschool. The skills that are taught in preschool are the basic skills needed to develop.
Contradictions between teachers’ explanations and practices in classroom The interviews have demonstrated that every ELT ST participated in our research views that many teachers are not consistent with what they explain and how they apply them into practice during courses. For example, A2 student answered the second interview question (Interview II): as followed A2: Some teachers explain the theories really well in a way that we all understand because the teacher applies the theory. So it makes us understand the theory in class very well. While some other teachers teach and do not apply the theories into practice which
However, there are bigger decisions and politics involved. Teaching problem based learning will take time to introduce as a way of critical thinking. The confusion for students lies where there is no correct answer, the confusion for the teacher is knowing how to grade this type of work. The riskiest part of implementing this model may perhaps be the ethics involved. Involving ethics and morals into schoolwork may bring up an assortment of issues.
Teaching can be an occupation with many challenges. One of the greatest challenge is how to effectively transmit the knowledge and content to the students. This can be achieved in many ways in career and technical education. Two of the more common ways is through a traditional classroom lecture style, another may be through guided practice in the laboratory and there are still many other ways to deliver information to the students. A teacher designed lessons may appear effective on paper and even during delivery, but how can we as teachers’ gauge if the teaching method being utilized is truly being absorbed by the students?
Education commentators and reformers have perennially called attention to the challenges encountered by newcomers to teaching. Teaching in secondary schools involves intensive interaction with youngsters; the work of teachers is largely done in isolation from colleagues. Such isolation can especially be difficult for newcomers, who, upon accepting a position in teaching, are frequently left to succeeded or fail on their own within the confines of their classrooms. Other commentators go further, arguing that beginners tend to end up in the most challenging and difficult classroom and school assignments. Some have gone further to assail teaching as an occupation that cannibalizes its young.
Normally uncertified teachers are not prepared for how certified teachers are through years of schooling and training from education classes. Schools have always had the issue with the shortage of teachers because the types of education laws and issues that arise, which leads to about anyone stepping into the classroom (Sterling & Frazier. n.d). Uncertified teachers who have different educational backgrounds than certified teachers leaves the students not prepared or motivated to learn from someone who is not experienced in teaching (Sterling & Frazier. n.d).

Needs based on different situations in the classroom and of students with different backgrounds can also be met with the use of varied methods of assessment. This enables teachers to select from a broad range of different tools to help students reach their learning goals. Past research has indicated that there are many problems associated with teachers’ classroom assessment practices. These include teachers’ lack of an adequate knowledge base involving the basic testing and measurement concepts (Stiggins, 2005), limited teacher training in assessment and failure of teachers to apply and adhere to measurement guidelines they learned in measurement courses. On the other hand, teachers who develop useful assessments, provide corrective instruction, and give students second chances to demonstrate success which can improve their teaching and assist students to discover.
These problems need to be solve before it get worse and evolve to a bigger issues especially in kindergarten and primary school. But for me the problem which is usually found in an English class that have to be solve in early stage is that students are usually unprepared to learn in classroom. This problem might have been arise from some issues such as English not being their favorite subject, students don’t understand the lesson, laziness, translating word rather than phrases and also students don’t open up to teacher. As for the first issue which is English not being their favorite subject, there are solutions to this
