They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
WHAT IS IT? School-based management (SBM) is a strategy to improve education. By transferring significant decision-making authority from education offices to individual schools. SBM provides principals, teachers, students, and parents control over the education process by giving them responsibility for decisions about the planning, personnel, curriculum and action in school. Through the involvement of school community members in these key decisions, SBM can create more effective learning environments for students.
There are different ways of making our Anaheim schools better. Right now our schools may be doing good depending on how your perspective towards the schools is, but what if we could improve them? In order to increase student success at Anaheim schools, students must follow protocol called SSLANT. In Gladwell’s research essay, “Margarita’s Bargain,” he explains how SSLANT worked in the school he talked about, KIPP Academy. “In the classroom, they are taught to turn and address anyone talking to them using a protocol known as SSLANT.” This quote made by Gladwell shows how the students are taught to be respectful when talking to someone.
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
This can lead to many problems and if it is taken on a higher scale, it can affect the way that an entire school operates. When teachers only teach what is needed for the test and not what is important to the student or helps them individually learn, it changes the environment of a school. This also places importance on short term memorization and not persistence and actually learning the material. Standardized tests with high stakes, not just the STAAR, affect many aspects of a students life and education. If we think the most important part of an entire school year in regards to a students learning is one end of the year test, we might need to revisit the purpose of education.
Harpo Allen Middle School Scenario Reflection 1. Describe some approaches that could be used to establish a culture of high expectations for students and staff performances at Harpo Allen Middle School. • First, as a new principal, you will need to acquire an understanding of and appreciation for the culture of the school, then, use your leadership style (such as being a team leader) in order to gain the trust and respect of the staff and students. • Conduct a school climate survey of faculty, parents, and students to gauge how much of the learning process I taking place and what measures need to be incorporated insure that high quality teaching/learning is taking place for the entire school. • Create PLCs to promote high expectations among
This means an effective class and raised teaching standard which in-turn improves the overall motivation of the teacher. This results in a positive influence on the productivity of the teacher as well as have positive influence on the overall satisfaction of the teacher. To understand the importance of planning from an intrinsic viewpoint, it is important to consider the real advantages, which could be driving an increased teacher enthusiasm. A fully planned lesson allows the teacher to maintain focus throughout the lesson. As discussed previously, effective lesson planning can have a positive effect on the motivation on a teacher.

No longer can guidance counselors or schools counselors simply make sure students are in the right classes or just work with the troubled students or clients. The guidance counselors’ attitude, effectiveness being accepted on good faith is no longer valid (Myrich, 2003b). It is now part of the school counselor identity to be accountable to others the effectiveness of the program in measurable terms (Brott, 2006, p. 179). Furthermore, guidance counselors are expected to “fix all types of behavioral and learning problems of students from varied cultural backgrounds (Fall, 2001 a.p. 316), while addressing each student as a unique entity (Roberts & Mills, 2009), according to a research of Eric Davis, 2010.
This demonstrates my understanding of effective learning though appropriate instructional strategies because is displays how I implemented a variety of materials and technological resources to support my instructional strategies and reinforce student learning. It also conveys my ability to assess student’s through both formal (activity sheet) and informal (thumbs up) assessment techniques. These techniques help me evaluate the student’s strengths/weaknesses and the effectiveness of my instructional strategies. This particular skill outcome is important to early childhood education because implementing instructional strategies that reach the diversity of our students is going to promote overall student success. We, as early childhood educators, have to use a variety of strategies to discover more about the student’s developmental process and adjust our instruction in a way that will promote students to become self-directed
Testing and assessment are given to students to not only help them on a personal/ social level but also to help the school determine where their students stand academic wise. The counselors and administrators can use the results to implement programs to better the areas that need improvement in the school and also attain achievement
They do not agree that they have a responsibility to go over homework or assist their children at home. If their child does poorly in school they will blame the teacher for not doing their job. In contrast, parents apart of a higher social class tend to be more involved in their child’s school work resulting in high expectations of their children 's success in the classroom. Children become more self driven and motivated to complete their assignments and pass classes in hopes of not disappointing their parents. From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities.
Itcan also be used to monitor readiness skills. When using CBM, the instructor provides thestudent with brief, timed samples, or "probes," constructed of academic material taken from thestudent’s school curriculum. In addition, the CBM graphs are able to provide you with greatinformation that can be shared with parents, teachers, and administration. CBM is an effectivetool when determine if a child should be retained or not.Progress monitoring is extremely important, and should be done frequently. Continuingprogress monitoring grants teachers and schools to adjust and modify instruction to expeditestudent growth, success, and learning.
