I collected data that have researched on it and I looked at it from a sociological lens to understand the complexity of it. Relationship of Evidence to Standards & Competencies: One of the knowledge outcomes is Ethical standards and professional behaviour. Within this outcome are the continuum of teacher education and the life-long of the teacher. This formative assessment provides student-teacher’s feedback on their performance in classroom, which enabled improvement on teaching and learnings. It identified my strengths which were my relationship with my students, my effort put into my planning and willingness to try new approaches.
In accordance with Piaget’s theory, the learner interacts with objects and events available in the physical and social environment and therefore comprehends the objects or events using the process of assimilation, accommodation and equilibration. The learners, therefore, construct their own conceptualizations and use them to generate solutions to problems. This theory also suggests that humans create and construct knowledge as they try to bring meaning to their experiences. In the differentiated classroom, teachers should facilitate the learning process by organizing learning activities and using variety of aid material according to the level of students’ cognitive structure to enable them to construct knowledge through their
However, most probably my students are facing the level two, stage three and four. According to Kohlberg, at this stage they see morality as more than a simple deal that they can manage themselves. As their teacher, I can help them to identify ways to respond to the cultural rules and understand what is good and bad or right and wrong in a society. These can be taught to them through hidden curriculum. It might be difficult to make them understand all the rights and wrongs as their thinking might be affected by many factors around them.
The theories of learning have undertaken important developments over the years to determine how best an educator can develop their students to survive in the 21st century. The major advancements in education have focused its attention on learning that concentrates on skills and competencies (Dumont et al, 2010). “Learning is a process of active engagement with experiences and involves the development or deepening of skills, knowledge, understanding, values, ideas and feelings” (Museums, Libraries and Archives Council, 2008). Many theorists have realized that the classroom should not only be a particular set of education experiences that develop students academically but additionally to enhance their social skills, which are critical to work
It is a set of rules and regulations that teaches students on identifying the wrong and the right to do thing in schools in order to become a successful, honest and an accountable person in the future. In schools, there is a written document produced by some professional body to guide the teachers to maintain their ethical ideals when faced with ethical issues. It helps them maintaining good relationship among peers and stakeholders when an issues arise.Ethics in education is basically something that teachers need to know for the benefit of both the teacher and students. Somehow, there are challenges that the teachers faced in which teacher faced while implementing the
The results of this study may provide valuable insights for understanding teachers’ classroom assessment practices and needs for teachers in and other parts of the world. Information obtained in this study can also be used for decision making such as evaluating the effectiveness of classroom assessment practices that teachers adopt as they evaluate student learning. Findings from this study may also add to a body of knowledge to the exiting assessment theory and practice within the education system and act as a framework for developing teacher preparation and professional development in the use of classroom
The role of the leader-as-teacher is to serve as a mentor to their employees or colleagues. Leader as teacher is about fostering learning for everyone and help people throughout the organization develop systemic understanding, instead of teaching people how to achieve their vision. According to Senge (1990:353), teacher’s role is also to define reality for the organization, with helping people achieve more accurate, more insightful and more empowering views of reality. Peter Senge argues that, building on existing hierarchy of explanation leaders can influence people’s view of reality at four levels: events, patterns of behavior, systemic structures and the purpose story (Senge 1990:353). According to Senge (1993: 353), most of the leaders and managers tend to focus on events and behavior these two levels.
Teachers are instructed to use teaching strategies such as storytelling, role play, experiential learning, classroom discussions and reflection to instil values and equip students with social and emotional competencies and skills related to citizenship. These techniques appear merely innocuous and gimmicky. However, they are manifestations of a model that sees students as objects to be manipulated rather than as learners to
Through the understanding of the nature of the learners and the ways the learners learn, curriculum developers devise and phrase appropriate goals and objectives and make more appropriate choices in curriculum decision-making. The essence of social constructivism is that education is seen as a way of improving society. The constructivist curriculum lays stress upon social values - in a democratic society, for example: citizenship and socio co-operation. Knowledge is justified in terms of individual social needs, not in terms of customs and cultural heritage. Social constructivism is a philosophy that emphasizes the addressing of social questions and a quest to create a better society and worldwide democracy.
