Reflection Paper 1 About the explicit curriculum Vs implicit curriculum In order to clarify about preferring of explicit curriculum or implicit curriculum, the learners must be understood how both curriculums works as a field of education. Teachers designing their curriculum must consider how the environment of the classroom will impact students. A student will learn from what is taught in a class and from how that class is taught. That student will also take lessons from how her/his class and school are organized.
Introduction Hidden curriculum refers to the unwritten, unofficial, and intended lessons, values and perspectives that students learn in school. While the ‘formal’ curriculum consists of the courses, lessons and learning activities participate in as well as the knowledge and skills educators intentionally teach to students, the hidden curriculum consists of the unspoken or implicit academic, social and cultural messages that are communicated to students while they are in school. The hidden curriculum concept is based on the recognition that students absorb lessons in school that may or may not be part of the course of study. For example, how they should interact with peers, teachers, and other adults, how they should perceive different races,
As we dive into the realm of higher education, one may assume that the primary educational focus is placed on the teacher-student relationship. Teachers-students alike form relationships, as they embark down the educational pathway. It is this relationship that allows teachers alike to influence their pupils learning. In today’s society you can acknowledge that there are many influences that affect people’s perceptions of learning.
The primary vehicle for this is the teachers that deliver the curriculum in the classroom. These teachers are responsible for balancing the educational curriculum set by state or governing bodies, while presenting a worldview in line with their schools own vision and mission statements. Within this curriculum an opportunity will arise to explain metaphysical phenomena (Dowson 2014). Within this explanation, the worldview of the teacher will be conveyed, even if it is contradictory to the view of the schools (Naugle 2005, Sire 2014). In research conducted by Smith (2011), he commentated on the projection of young adults and the challenges they face.
In the Educational Leadership article entitle “The Boss of My Brain”, authors Donna Wilson and Marcus Conyers examines the explicit instruction in metacognition. Researchers stated that “explicit instruction in metacognition puts students in charge of their learning.” It was also stated that “meta-cognition supports learning by enabling us to actively think about which cognitive strategies can help achieve learning, how we should apply those strategies, how we can review our progress, and whether we need to adjust our thinking.” I believe this a unique teaching tool for teachers to implement with their students. With the use of metacognition, students whether they are struggling learners or gifted can learn how to use a variety of cognitive strategies to help improve their learning.
The purpose of this essay is to identify how important it is to have a diverse classroom setting. Students from all over the world enter the 21st century classrooms bringing a little bit of home with them. It is crucial that teachers are aware of what is happening and educate themselves in how to reach a student. Children are similar but different at the same time. Students learn in many different ways like for example observing, listening, demonstration, speaking and etc.
This chapter deals with the literature review so it examines the relevant literature in teachers’ nonverbal behaviors, social cognitive theory and the role of teachers’ nonverbal behaviors, and students’ perception on teachers’ nonverbal behaviors in EFL classroom. I divided this chapter into three major sections namely; Thematic Review, Theoretical Review, and Empirical Review. The section of thematic review presents the themes related to this study. Likewise, theoretical review discusses about the theory which provides the theoretical foundation for this study. Similarly, the next section reviews empirical studies to create the space for the present study.
LEARNING THEORY The showing and learning framework can't waive the instructors' commitment and the individual human contact between the understudy and educator. An adjustment in the field of learning frameworks must consider, information that has a place with the field of instruction and learning. Information including states of mind of the educators' and understudies, capacity, identity, mental and sociological procedures that go with a procedure of progress, the showing strategy, the learning objectives and additionally cost versus viability. Learning Theory is at the focal point of every instructive project.
The Education of Immigrant Children Introduction Each year there are a numerous circumstances immigrant children face in order to get the proper education they need. Researchers have recognized the importance of children education and have found a three-pronged approach on how to handle this issue by removing barriers and provide funds to postsecondary schools that will lead children to be successful in the future, improve ECE participation rates among immigrant children, and having parental and family involvement to help their kids more to give them a better understanding in school. The Problem According to researchers, immigrant children in school are affected in several ways, some ways that later on in the future they might not
