By applying the nine-step model for lessons, the educator ensures that they are creating an effective learning program, this is due to the structure of the model. The consequence of this can be a holistic style of teaching, which essentially encourages autonomy within the learners. However, as with every theory and model, there are advantages and disadvantages to using Gagne’s conditions of learning. The final edition of the book was published in 1985 so is considered out of date now, which could affect the reliability of the contents and model. This is primarily due to the rapid advancements in technology since the last edition was published.
This tells them how they will be assessed throughout the class. Step 4: Instruction, giving students input by summarizing definition 's and demonstrating basic learning skills. Also, demonstrating the application of concepts and skills with a demonstration; it 's better for the students if the teacher demonstrates. Step 5: Checking for understanding, this step is a guiding practice to have learner’s do exercises effectively and monitoring informal or observational assessment as previously demonstrating in step 3 and 4. additional assessments determine needs for re-teaching which makes the content of the lesson and its objective to stimulate the minds of the learners. Step 6: Closure, reinforcement to major points learned and help organize the students learning and cue’s them to know they have arrived at an important part of the lesson.
I know that the students in my class learned what I need them to learn from my writing lesson. Furthermore, the students learned what was intended and stated in the objectives. I was able to measure the student’s understanding using a rubric, the quality of the student’s writing, and from my small group observations. 2.Were the students productively engaged? How do I know?
This allows students to integrate new learning with previous knowledge. Consequently, students develop the ability to link movement skills to perform movement sequences. Disadvantage One disadvantage of skill theme approach is that since teachers need to observe students as to plan and design task for next relevant learning stage. It must be very time consuming to make specific and informed observation for each individual student. These assessment of skills is also dependent on fatigue and interest.
Through this knowledge, the teacher can presume how children of a particular age group will act, what they are capable of doing and what they are not likely able to do. Consequently, the teacher can devise activities rather confidently by taking all these aspects into consideration. At this stage, the teacher can take advantage of the windows of opportunity for the child’s growth. In other words, the teacher benefits from the sensitive period of a child’s development to provide him with enriching activities; the best period for the child to learn and develop further. In addition, what the children learn should be relevant to their environment and life experiences.
Moreover he or she should be able to adapt new practices to the needs of every student. I believe, the first step for every teacher is to attempt to build good relationships with students. Moreover, it is important to have good interrelationships with colleagues and administrators. Being able to establish respectful and caring relationships with colleagues can enrich the work experience. When I was in the middle school, my favorite teacher was the teacher of Ukrainian literature and language.
It should provide them with feedback on their skill progression, motivate them to improve and contribute greatly to their overall development. It also guides the teacher, showing them both how and what the children are learning. This, in turn, enables them to adjust their lessons to account for all students in the classroom and self-reflect on their teaching practices for future planning. Given the wide
As to me, I think the module video presents a variety of skills and concepts that help teachers in creating a well-managed and effective classroom that provides an environment in which teaching and learning escalate by setting clear and well-organized classroom rules and procedures. An effective learning can be maximized in a secure learning climate, where the teacher and her students feel comfortable. It is very beneficial that both, the teacher and the students must be encouraged and motivated; Students to learn and acquire the adequate knowledge, and teachers to facilitate learning. Effective teaching and learning are synchronized and can’t be accomplished in poorly managed classroom. A good example was introduced in this module is Mr. Jones
The school where I did my observation has a strong philosophy regarding how best students learn; it states that the teachers will encourage students to develop a critical thinking skill towards learning, so they can acquire knowledge that will help them perform at their best. The school also believed that teachers should allow students to become responsible in the learning process and this is done by allowing students to work Cooperatively. Students learn in different ways and therefore teachers should use creative methods when imparting knowledge using cooperative learning strategies (Hammond, 1996). Students were placed in groups at all times to accomplish the tasks that are given in class, this has helped the students to participate and do well in group presentations. In that it has promote a positive interdependence where each group member depends on each other to accomplish a shared goal or task.
We shared different beliefs in teaching and I found her methods to be very “by the book” and unengaging for the participants. Ghuman captures her way of teaching by describing the teacher being the ““academic” instructor who stood or sat at a distance from” the students, and the students are “asked to refer to instructions written on the board or to listen carefully to what they said” (2009). From being a student myself, I personally do not find learning beneficial when it is simply told to me. Instead of reinforcing the traditional teaching methods, I believe that students need to be active learners. Most people learn best when they are part of the learning process, have a voice in the discussion and can evaluate and reflect on their own learning.
