You want to be patient with them and be consistent and have a trusting relationship with them because, if they are suffering depression, anger issues, then they think think that the teacher is gonna failed them. It is best to have a teacher tutor them for whatever is their weakness that needs to be worked on for the children. They want to help them as the best that they possibly can to help them pass, but we want them to know that we care about who you are and we just want to help you to learn something before you move on to the next grade and for the future. All children need stability to have
1) One of the most important things that I noticed in Mrs. Terrett’s classroom that demonstrates an environment of respect and rapport is that she expresses high expectations for learning. The students exhibited respect for their teacher by quietly listening and following her instructions, and Mrs. Terrett checked on each student with care and attention. To assist the students who needed help or those who were making noise, Mrs. Terrett would simply talk to them quietly at their desk to show them respect and avoid embarrassing them in front of the class. 2) One of the routines that Mrs. Terret has incorporated into the beginning of each class is having the students write their math homework assignment in their school planners. As the students
Through all the CELTA course I have been observing and taking notes of many classes from my peers, trainers and experienced teachers. From those notes, this essay will focus on 4 specific areas. Those areas are error correction, setting tasks, pace, and concept checking questions. Observing a class from one of my peers I was able to take very good examples of error correction, including immediate and delayed error correction. During feedbacks, the teacher immediately encouraged self-correction whenever the students made a mistake using different techniques.
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.
The teacher will explain to the students the rules. When a rule is broken the student will already know what is the consequence for their misbehavior. These details both agree that if misbehavior is being displayed a consequence will be administered. (Kagan, n.d.)
It is at this meeting that the IEP team talks about the student’s strengths and needs and writes the IEP. The IEP includes specific goals and objectives as well as accommodations and modifications that the child needs to be successful in the classroom. It is also at this meeting that placement of classroom is determined for the student. The law requires that the student is placed in the least restrictive environment, which means the child must be placed in the setting the non-disabled peers to the extent that their needs are being met. The parent must accept and sign off the IEP for it to be in effect.
Supporting learning activities in year 5, I feel confident in the classroom in a supporting role. Mrs Shaw, the teacher, is very clear in what she likes me to do and I am responsible to get on with my tasks. If I do not understand something then I am happy to ask for help. I do my best to be of as much use as possible. 2.
The classroom management fit directly in with her methods of instruction, like it should. She we was very big on active learning and keeping the students hooked and involved. By touching base with each student, she challenged them individually and uniquely; mainly due to each of their disabilities or disadvantages. By giving them breaks every 5-10 minutes, especially the ADD/ADHD students, it kept them involved and gave them a goal. The breaks definitely go hand in hand with active learning because it gives the students a rest so that their minds can process the information that they just took in.
It has been an interesting process for me to learn how classroom teachers look at and use data, especially from standardized tests to drive instruction, and interventions to help students grow and excel in their learning. Being a specials teacher I do not get much time to sit down and talk with any grade level teams, however whenever I join the fifth grade team I feel like a member of their team and not an outsider. I enjoy the fact that they are a respectful community that listens to me when I share the informal data that I have collected in my tigers times class along with looking at NWEA and Iowa Assessment and other data to help group
He says he enjoys it because he gets to read a lot. Another child is interviewed about the directional method and she spoke about how today when she read, she read aloud with no errors as opposed to the day prior when she had three errors. In this video, a woman explains that this method does not target competition between peers, but it make the students more aware of themselves and the progress they are making. The teachers in this video seem to have patterns with how they instruct the classroom. They will provide auditory cues like
He allows the class to lead the discussion that empowered them to become involved in the learning process. The classroom was extremely respectful of other student’s opinions and even when they disagreed were able to reach an agreement. Questions were accepted and carefully considered in his classroom. The overall experience in his classroom is extremely positive. He promotes a positive learning experience and includes all of the students.
She addressed to her students that she would reward each pupil at the end of the week for good conduct and in return the student will be rewarded with a gift, but if the student doesn’t follow the rules she/he will then loose the opportunity to receive a gift. In order to involve the parents in the classroom the teacher would make calls to report the student’s progress and classroom behavior. I was able to view the teacher’s effectiveness by the students’ participation in the lesson. They responded to her
Coty’s philosophy of building a relationship with students is so on point. Her idea is that the more a student likes and respects you, the more they’ll want to behave and do well in your class. I remember a story from my father’s childhood where the only class he actually tried to do well in was because he really liked the teacher. Having a positive attitude, getting down on a child’s level, being silly with them, and letting them know you care are all great ways to build a relationship and thereby improve your classroom management abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Coty’s dissertation on knowing where students are going and where they’ve been in order to tailor your lessons to their academic needs.
