I feel that they do not take my social identities into account because I am there to help. Also, because we do not really shed any light on cultural differences at the after school program, it is not something they really think about. I feel very different from my students one reason simply can be is that a lot of them wear a headscarf or some type of veil and I do not. I feel that I stick out like a sore thumb, but I do not feel them judging me. Also, I once saw a child, Rofaida, praying before eating her snack that we offer to them.
Most of professional recognise that reflective practice is engaging, thoughtful and structured activity to improve their actions in an event or situation, but how should they choose which type of event and situation to reflect on? (Walters, 2013). As a practitioner, there are plenty of reasons when engaging in reflective activity. The most fundamental in reflective practice is the need of improving and developing the teaching and learning (Rushton and Suter, 2012). It is only when practitioners learn best, and identifies how they have learned what they know, that they start to think consciously about how they learn throughout life (Jasper,
The communication between parents and children regarding school work is just about lost and teachers now teach towards the test. I honestly do not think that common core will drastically help a student be better prepared for college or a job after high school. Since it is still a new concept, there is no real statistical data to support how effective common core is. You should not have to worry about how good you do on a test, but rather develop critical thinking skills do better yourself for the
The behaviour we observed is models. In social life, children encompassed with effective people like parents, siblings, friends, tv characters and teachers etc. They attract to certain people and encode the behaviour and later imitate the behaviour interest to them regardless whether it is appropriate or inappropriate for them. MEDITATIONAL PROCESS: it is referred as a bridge between traditional learning theory and cognitive approach. Bandura believes that individuals are effective "informative processors" and always anticipate the connection between their behaviour and its outcome and such factor involved in the learning process to evaluate if the new response is accomplished.
Prior to attending the CPOA, students are required to send out a survey to peers, subordinates, and managers. This survey was valuable to me. A common theme is that I am caring and approachable – qualities I value as a leader. I was also told that I need to be more assertive. This is something I am aware of and will continue to work on.
As an educator we should know and understand our own culture identity which is the first step to become a culturally competent practitioner. From that we will get to know how our cultural experience has moulded our own life which made us capable to acknowledge how these features impact on others. A culturally competent educator can communicate delicately and effectively with people who have different languages, cultures, religions, genders, ethnicities, disabilities, ages and sexualities and this educator will attempt to provide services which are consistent to the needs and values of the families and children by acknowledging them, and responding to them correctly. An Educator need to improve skills, knowledge, attitudes, perceptions and practices
It entails a series of linguistic, ideological, and societal factors that are all intertwined and weaved into a unique and diverse perspective of the world. Meanwhile I believe it to be fundamental to appreciate, assimilate, and integrate into a societies culture in order to be a proficient and apt member of a community, it is also essential and beneficial for individuals to embrace, learn, and maintain any form of their self-identity. All aspects and experiences dealing with a person’s identity can contribute and serve as vital sources of knowledge, perspective, and decision-making. Unlike many of my friends, I took a different path and approach when it came to how I became part of the American community. I chose to hold on and cherish all factors of my cultural identity, including language, food, and traditions, and fused them with my newfound appreciation for American culture.
Making the right questions and showing your eagerness to study is a part of good communication which makes people inclined towards explaining and assisting you with their wisdom. To be able to gain as much knowledge as possible, we have to learn from numerous sources, and one of the best approaches is to learn from others’ experience. Attempting that requires us to showcase our will in appropriate manners and the other party to approve of us, which relates to the point that I mentioned earlier about how good communication can help us in establishing relationships, hence make people more open to share and help us. To sum up, I completely understand the value of communication in CA and have been preparing myself with the best I could so as to avoid and battle the potential hardships that I might encounter in the future. As a result, I find that my communication skills are not seriously lacking and hopefully I will not have to encounter major hindrances in forthcoming CA.
It has been the fault of the school district, school, and teachers as to why the students have a lack of global perspective. In talking to my students I found out that they think very little of competing academically with another country and how the use of technology impacts their ability to compete. Other than a social studies course, we rarely mention what takes place in countries other than our own and it is even more rare to talk about how these countries are using technology or their advancement in education. Not taking advantage of this platform with our students and colleagues eventually puts us all at a disadvantage because we limit our research for competing to neighboring schools and counties before we even look at things from a national
She mentions, “Locate a resilient kid and you will also find a caring adult or several-who have guided him.” This quotes strongly relates to me because I believe that if you really want to impact a student, teachers, parents or a community you must build a rapport and a strong relationship. In addition, Perry and Delpit (1998) mention in their book, “In order to teach you, I must know you.” This is a quote that I strongly relate to and maybe it is because my love language is quality time. Therefore, it makes complete sense and I can connect with this quote because I feel that in order for me to know my students’ I must invest time learning about them. In addition, a way of doing this is my learning about the students’ culture, traditions, and language. Once an educator learns about the students’ culture then they are able to incorporate it into their
