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.
Their roles is to plan, coordinate, schedule, and evaluate curriculum and instructional outcomes within a secure, positive, and enriched inclusive classroom environment. Their main responsibility is to provide instructional schedule and long range plan information. On the other hand, special education teachers have to design their lessons plans to fit each of the individual’s needs. Their main role is to provide instruction and support which facilitate the participation of students with disabilities in special education classrooms, but also in regular education classrooms. Their principal responsibility is to serve as case managers and be responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of their students.
The education system has the power to create a huge impact on the development of a child with a disability. This impact can be act both positively and negatively depending on a multitude of factors such as parents, teachers, and the school district as a whole. To ensure the success of a child with a disability, Individual Education Plans or IEPs are often created so that the child can reach success at their own pace, and through a plan that works best with their learning style. An IEP plan is a constant work in progress. This plan is often formed as a collaboration from a number of individuals such as parents and teachers.
Inroduction In the following report the principles, benefits and challenges of independent learning will be discussed. 1.1 A classroom environment is very diverse. There are learners with different types of intelligences, cultural, social and personal backgrounds and learners with specific learning difficulties. It is important that a teacher recognize these needs and plan her teaching strategies in meeting with the learning objectives. This is where creativity and innovation enters; it is the ability to think beyond the obvious.
Goals made by students and teachers to achieve this developmental interaction determines the productivity present within every objective. In all three videos representing the multiple forms of student interaction, a classroom can be greatly impacted by the time dedicated to student interaction through engagement. Furthermore, between each student there is an eagerness to listen and learn from each other once given the responsibility to by a teacher. Preparing a student to be more comfortable and experienced in engaging in a classroom could be possible when they are designated with a role or a responsibility. A way, used in one video, to establish an unmeasurable amount of newfound equality in a diverse classroom is through a practice called tracking.
Each of these conditions (immersion, (demonstration, engagement, expectations, responsibility, employment, approximation, and response) support the teacher and student in learning and provide a context within which to learn (Rushton, Eitelgeorge & Zickafoose 2003). In relation to Brian Cambourne's conditions, I believe that establishing a positive classroom community is essential for creating a successful classroom. Students should always have a safe environment in which they belong and are actively engaged in their learning. The classroom should be a place where students are immersed in literacy and are provided with many opportunities to discover different forms of text in ways that apply to their world. Within my classroom community, I will model the skills required for language and the students will be active participants in their learning.
From a sociocultural perspective, the role of the teacher is significant in the enhancement of productive collaboration processes (Hämäläinen & Vähäsantanen, 2011). Through interaction and feedback, students learn from each other and help each other to improve on the quality of ideas during the construction and re-construction of knowledge (Looi et al., 2010). Decades of research illustrate the benefits of inquiry-based and cooperative learning to help students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in a rapidly changing world (Barron & Darling-Hammond, 2008). Teachers should create classroom environments to meet individual students’ interests and needs, design curriculum to ensure open-ended activities, and utilize real-life contexts for assessing and reporting learning outcomes. These strategies help students not only become more versed in creative thinking, but also situate them in an environment that fosters creativity (Hong et al.,2009).
For students with disabilities, schools need to take some necessary steps in order for a beneficial transition to take place. Schools need to provide students with resources such as an RA or SNA (Special Needs Assistant) to students or teachers that want or need one. They also need to provide specific framework for students such as IEPs etc., allow pre-entry contact for pupils and parents, and create a strong relationship with parents based on constant communication. If schools can effectively provide these resources for students with special needs, the transition from Primary to Post-Primary education can run smoothly and create great educational experiences for these
Communication skills Based on researchers study, communication is the vital component in the education of students with moderate general learning incapacities as it permeates the entire curriculum and is essential to all learning. Permitting the student to make the greatest possible use of their senses is necessary. Activities is one way of developing their awareness, interest and concentration are increasingly extended to encourage functional and enjoyable interaction with people and objects. The ability to gain control over the environment students opens up a world of opportunity to them. Development is an interactive approach that stimulates a desire in the student to communicate and acknowledges that every effort to communicate is cherished.
Helping students understand better in the classroom by using the Daily Lesson Log of every teacher. Teachers need to motivate students how to learn. This provides the researchers an insight to enrich his/her investigation and understanding of the problem. Lesson study is an in school teacher education strategy consisting of pre-collaborative work among teachers, lesson observation, and post collaborative work (Lewis, 2000) Collaborative team teaching technique (Ballao: 2003) each teacher has its role to play. If the Teacher A is conducting a review lesson to the class, Teacher B might be preparing the materials needed by the pupils in doing the activities, in other words, Teacher A and B have different activities would be done for every part
