Pedagogy is important because it demonstrate how the teaching and learning occurs. Students must build up their own understandings through teachers’ and their own considered learning experiences. Teacher’s subject matter knowledge and pedagogical knowledge are vital to good teaching and student understanding (Buchmann, 1982, 1983; Tobin & Garnett, 1988). In Shulman's theoretical framework, teachers need to master two types of knowledge: content and knowledge of the curricular development. Teacher must integrate teaching strategies that will help students to assimilate knowledge such as supportive classroom environment, recognition of difference and connectedness to the wider world.
Teachers using the preventive approach offer warmth, acceptance, and support unconditionally, not based on a student's behavior. Fair rules and consequences are established and students are given frequent and consistent feedback regarding their behavior.  One way to establish this kind of classroom environment is through the development and use of a classroom contract. The contract should be created by both students and the teacher. In the contract, students and teachers decide and agree on how to treat one another in the classroom.
Therefore a good and effective teacher’s evaluation process should be potent in order to promote, repeat and place students in various learning stages. In evaluating the students the teacher collects, analyze and produces judgments. Based on the results the teacher then decides on actions that must be taken into consideration, including changes in aims or goals. It is the source of data on which the teacher will base his/her judgments about improvements and “fine tuning” to be made. The habit of evaluating over time will help the teacher develop a well-founded professional expertise because of the way in which they test out and check what they did, and as a result they can be more accurately informed about what works and what does not.
Reliability talks about fairness and the condition in which an assessment is given. And lastly purpose, it is important to ensure that you as the teacher know the purpose behind your assessment tool. The purpose of an assessment can be diagnostic, formative – assessments for learning or summative – assessments for certification. Assessments must be used as tools to support learning not hinder it. During TE my supervising teacher asked me to moderate her cycle tests as she believed it was a necessary skill to learn.
and tend to not be disruptive to their peers. CMCD is to promote responsibility between the teachers and the students regarding the students’ learning (Freiberg et al., 2008). Consistency management refers to how the classroom teacher chooses to set up the environment within the classroom. This includes passing out papers, seating arrangements, personal space usage, taking attendance, and creating a positive environment for students to learn. Cooperative Discipline refers to letting the students take ownership.
The best way for the teacher to get to know its students is through diaries. Teacher should instruct its students to write their opinion on the course, to comment the teacher and activities done in the classroom, and to write any problems they have while encountering a foreign language. This way, each student will be heard and eventually taken into consideration when the lesions are planned. It is important for the teacher to state that no one will read diaries except him/her and that it is for the educational purposes only. Since all of the activities won’t suit all the learners, the variety is important.
Collegial interchange, not isolation, must become the norm for teachers. Communities of learners can no longer be considered utopian; they must become the building blocks that establish a new foundation for America’s Schools.” National Commission on Teaching, 2003 “Isolation is the enemy of learning. Principals who support the learning of adults in their school organize teachers schedules to provide opportunities for teachers to work, plan, and think together.” NAESP, Leading Learning Communities: Standards for What Principals Should Know and Be Able to Do I have reviewed a lot of literature for research with reference to my research questions and project aim. However, I have been inspired by the work of Peter Senge and his book The Fifth Discipline. I have shared the model presented by Peter that elucidates the disciplines of a learning organization.
ii. Summary Teachers should make it as their goal to make lessons more suited to the needs of the students that reside in the school. iii. Call(s) to Action Every person is different, it seems that this method of teaching isn’t going to go away anytime soon, so help our your peers and always remember that you might not be the only one that likes to learn a certain way. iv.
In education, the ultimate purpose of the teacher is to help students to learn, often in a school. The aim is a course of study, planning of lesson, including learning and thinking skills. All these skills referred to pedagogical skills of a teacher. The teaching profession demands full devotion towards continues learning. The effective learning depends upon quality of teaching which requires individuals who are academically able and who care about the well-being of children and youth.
