Homework is an important way for teachers to develop relationships with their students ' parents and other caregivers. Fig. 1. Percentage of the use of online activities among children (Christine A. Portier). Homework clarifies what students have seen in class.
Although every school term, there are parents, student and teacher meeting, the teacher has to distribute rightful time for each student to discuss the student’s performance rather comparing or choosing selective students in communicating. Teachers should try to handle the student’s problem in a friendly manner. As a result, students turn to act responsive and respectful toward the teachers. Teachers also have to spend time demonstrate knowledge based on the student’s individual stage like student’s background, interest, emotional strength and academic
This interview allowed me to ask my cooperating teacher some questions on how she deals with one particular student. I know that teachers try to do the best that they can to help all of their students be successful in their classroom. When interviewing my teacher, the student that she decided to base her answers off of is a student that is hearing impaired. The hearing impaired student is an excellent student that does well in class and his accommodations help him do so. Along with talking about the hearing impaired student my cooperating teacher also tells me about another student she has.
First of all, formative assessment allow student to gain opportunity on how to take responsibility for their own learning, as example, teachers designed classroom assessment for students, students have to develop an understanding on their own and address findings for the challenge they encounter, all these able to help students aware of their learning needs and interests. Teachers can help student in learning but at the end of the day, student is the one who need to do the learning. Student will have better performance in studies if they figured out their strengths and weaknesses on particular subject they need to work on. Besides that, evaluation such as teachers explain learning aims, give effective feedback and check their understanding after each formative assessment, these helps students in communicate clear and specific learning goals. By setting goal,
Through my experience as a Peer Academic Leader, I was able to hold two counseling sessions with each student per semester to provide myself as a resource. I learned how to adapt to the individual needs of students to provide them the best education. Like students with a communication disorder, many of my students would shy away from activities or tasks because of obstacles. Through these experiences, I watched my students gain the confidence to participate in activities and excel in academics to become successful individuals. As a future Speech Language Pathologist, many qualities that I possess can be improved by furthering my education.
I feel Rotation Questioning is another effective technique where the last student speaking calls on the next student to be the speaker. Rote Learning where the students are made to recall over and again and memorize have a major effect on students while learning multiplication tables and formulas. Think, Pair, Share is a widely accepted active learning strategy wherein the teacher gives a particular task and asks the students to find a solution on their own, then discuss it with their partner and then share the results with the rest of the class. I think Graphic Organizers of important facts and concepts have a long lasting effect on the learners. Group Work gives every student the chance to speak, to share ideas and information and to develop the skill of working with others.
Observations- These can be informal or formal. In an informal observation these can be things you notice throughout the school day and you can then feedback to the teacher in the classroom. A formal observation is particular things used to help you assess a childâ€TMs development. Some of these observations include 2 year development checks, learning journeys or diaries, check sheets or tick lists and milestone recording. If a child is causing some concern then formal observations will be used.
Observing a classroom helped me get an understanding as to why teachers have different teaching theories and management. Observing allows you to listen to what a teacher has to say to every question that is being asked and allows you to see what types of questions the teacher is asking. Observing allows you to see what is being acknowledged and what is not and what is being enhanced. It allows you to see how students are learning and absorbing what the teacher is saying and how it allows them to place it in their everyday life. Mrs. Kreglow observes her students thorough out the whole day and keeps notes using the ClassDojo app and sticky notes.
Every other Wednesday morning, staff have an hour and a half AIG certification training that takes staff through modules of readings, assignments, and in person discussions during the meetings. I am able to be a part of this training and work with my grade level team to learn the content and apply it through assignments, such as creating an activity choice board for students that have already mastered the required content. The next steps that I would take would be to continually look for ways to apply the content in the classroom and to share these ideas and lessons with other teachers. Though the training was thorough and provided a lot of helpful information, it is up to the classroom teacher to then find ways to apply these tools in the classroom in practical ways. In the classroom that I am currently placed in, the group of students that are identified as AIG are reading at a much higher level than their peers and need more complex content to challenge them.
ESL teachers and practitioners in early childhood and should continuously observe students progress for the purpose of evaluating the teaching strategies and to develop students interests in learning English. A meaningful participation of teachers is required with appropriate teaching strategies will develop students’ interest in learning English (Chumak- Horbatsch, 2004; Tabors & Snow, 2001). Students who are learn English in the classroom will benefit when their first language is valued by the school and teachers. Teachers and early childhood practitioners face challenges in teaching students who come to school without any English language background and also when families do not share the same language. Likewise to fulfil a student’s interest in learning they need sufficient knowledge to create learning opportunities for students to learn the core language in the classroom to a level which they can understand.
