The first observation was conducted on August 30th at 9:00 a.m., while the student was participating in the special education resource room. The observation took place for a total of 25 minutes. For the duration of the observation the student was seated at a small table working one-on-one with the special education teacher. Along with the student being observed and the special education teacher, two other students, as well as, two paraprofessionals were in the special education resource room during the observation time. One student and paraprofessional were working one-on-one at a small table, while the other student was sitting in a bean bag chair reading a book. The other paraprofessional seemed to be completing paperwork at small desk. The classroom atmosphere seemed to be warm and accepting with several seating options for students, along with
The Week 4 assignments are addressed on how to use the observational tools in order to evaluate the development and create the activities that promote young children 's development. For example, assignment 4.3 Running Record is one of useful observational tools that educators can use. It requires sensitive observation and writing skills in order to collect detailed information. By using the running record, educator can use the data to evaluate the development of the child and create helpful activities that will help the development of the child.
Play is when a child or anyone for that matter can be inventive, creative and be free to do what they want during play. They can do what they think when playing, getting across the way they feel. Play is possibly the one main process which can let your imagination roam freely and forgetting about reality. I will also be discussing theorists and their theories associated with play, evaluating and assessing it 's effect on practice. Children are greatly affected by their play, as it can increase their holistic development and general everyday skills. "Play is so critically important to all children in the development of their physical, social, mental, emotional and creative skills that
For the second ten minute observation, I observed was during the teacher during circle time. They do a 20 minute circle every morning and the children love it. For this observation, I would give the teacher a rating of 5 for responding to social cues. During the circle time, she would ask questions and let the children talk. She would pick on kids with their hands up and allow them to speak and she would also pick on the kids that clearly wanted to talk, where either trying to talk without raising their hands. She would let them talk and then she would tell them that if they wanted to be picked, to raise their hands and she can see that they want to talk as opposed to squirming where they are sitting. There were many more opportunities for
Windham High School will take the following steps in order to address issues that are a cause of concern based on the information referenced in the pages above. Procedurally, these initiatives will go into place starting in August of 2018 prior to the start of the new school year. Incorporation
I = Ideas Chapter 3 discussed how to meet the literacy needs of diverse learners. Linguistic diversity, cultural diversity, and cognitive and academic diversity were all discussed in the chapter and I have viewed each of them in multiple classroom settings. I observed a kindergarten bilingual classroom where instruction was
Observational learning is used by and influences everyone, even when people do not mean to do so. This learning type being the way it is with how it affects people can be utilized and Eureka High School does this in a few different ways. Some of these ways include: Teachers
Observation is the tool that practitioners use to obtain the necessary information that helps them to plan effectively for each child. Observations are considered to be an important part while working with the children. There are number of reasons why recorded observations are required.
The elementary school that I observed at, Orchard View Elementary, was located in Delray Beach, FL. The location was very accessible and right off of the highway. The teacher I got assigned to was Ms. Diann Johnson. She teaches a class for students in 3rd-5th grade. The class was held in a portable located outside the school, attached to another portable. The class was strictly self-contained.
Mrs. Canada is the first grade teacher that I observed, and the subject that she was teaching was reading. She had planned well-organized power points and crafting materials in advance, so she was prepared for the lesson. The two times I observed, the lesson that was being taught at both times was reading. Children in the classroom used a lot of previous knowledge for the lesson. Each lesson was different and had different instructions, but the material was the same.
According to Lewis (2009) in his book “Understanding Pupil Behaviour: Classroom Management Techniques For Teachers” mentioned that there are some effects if the teachers don’t know about the students’ characteristics such as stress and Post-Guru Syndrom. Stress happens when they feel unable to maintain an classroom in which students can get on with their work and teachers can teach without unnecessary interruption, it is usually part of failure teacher in managing the classroom misbehavior of students and Post-Guru Syndrom happens when the teachers become inconsistent to implement the appropriate technique in teaching for students and finally
A good teacher should know how to engage students in learning activities and be able to respond to diverse students needs in the classroom. The classroom observations I have seen these past week has shown me examples of good teachers. In all the classes I observed the students sat quietly and were always ready to raise their hands and answer questions. In my kindergarten class all the students were really into their assignments and wanted approval of their work from their teacher. A good way I saw a teacher trying to keep her students engaged was giving them a time limit for how long they had to do the assignment before they had to present their results or move on to the next activity.
For an educator to be successful at teaching their students, the teacher must be able to asses the individual students knowledge of a subject (Guskey, 2003, p6). The clinical interview is a useful tool for assessing a student’s individual knowledge, along with other aspects of the education process. An instructor who is conducting clinical interviews are will be able to recognize the students thought process and learning behaviors when it comes to solving a problem or explaining a process to complete a report (Ginsburg, 1997, p.147). Furthermore, the interview allows the instructor to recognize gaps in both the student’s knowledge and the instructors teaching methods. Consequently, the results of the clinical interview help instructors to ensure students are receiving the best possible education they can receive. More so, they can apply the knowledge they received to other aspect of the world even after finishing school. In this interview I will be exploring my knowledge of science using the phases of the moon. This task should point out the basic knowledge normally received in elementary levels of education, of how the moon rotates around the earth as it rotates around the sun.
