“Preventative discipline” involves the development of effective teaching strategies, tactics, organisation and planning by the teacher. Understanding the power of words and what teachers model to the learner Rogers terms “corrective discipline” and lastly, “supportive discipline” is described as creating a positive and enriched learning environment that also includes the student in developing resolutions to discipline issues (Rogers p. 4). However, Rogers asserts, it is the teacher’s philosophical position, both implicit and explicit, that will be
In order to be an effective teacher, I believe that it is necessary to set clear expectations for your students. The use of a tools such as CHAMPS will allow my students to know what I expect of them for any activity that is being performed. As Eric Green states, “We can’t hold kids accountable for things we’ve never told them we expect. Behavior should be treated like academics. Students have to be taught the skills they need.” Thus, by having clear expectations, behavioral issues are often avoided.
Teacher educators and K-12 public school educational leaders recognize the need to provide specific culturally responsive teaching (CRT) training to pre-service and in-service teachers to better prepare these individuals to teach culturally diverse student populations. According to Brown (2012) and Gonzalez (2012), teacher preparation programs are training teachers in the use of CRT. For example, Gonzalez (2012) asserts that pre-service teachers need training in classroom-based assessments that address the learning needs of culturally diverse students. This study explored teachers’ lived experiences with teaching a culturally diverse student body and fills the gap in the literature on teachers’ lived experiences using CRTS with culturally diverse
On the other hand, the initiator is important in Darseni’s theory because learning only takes place when the learner becomes self-directed and reflective. There needs to be a focus on the self, rather than the product, therefore, effective learning can only occur when it stems from the individual. Further, learner initiated experiences are more effective in ensuring engagement. The different expectation of the role of the learner stems from what the theories consider as the goal of
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,
By providing a hierarchy of levels, this taxonomy can assist teachers in designing performance tasks, making questions for discussing with learners, and providing feedback on student work. This resource is divided into different levels each with Keywords that exemplify the level and questions that focus on that same critical thinking level. Questions for Critical Thinking can be used in the classroom to develop all levels of thinking within the cognitive domain. The results will be improved attention to detail, increased comprehension and prolonged problem solving skills. One way to challenge learners in the classroom is through the use of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
(Ritualo, 2000). This work would serve educators, particularly in assessing students, Supervisors and Curriculum Planners to find understanding the outcome of assessment (traditional and authentic) on science appreciative and learning conclusions of scholars. Classroom assessment practices are based on teacher beliefs, training, knowledge and skills in educational assessment. Understanding teachers’ classroom assessment practices remains pivotal for informed educational decisions that can be made about students’ learning outcomes. The results of this study may provide valuable insights for understanding teachers’ classroom assessment practices and needs for teachers in and other parts of the world.
In this study, the instruction followed the criterial tasks of the K-12 Curriculum. The teacher was a facilitator guiding the learners to arrive at the meaning of a difficult word. While the teacher acted as a facilitator, the learners were involved in an activity of identifying the meaning of a difficult word using speed drawing and kinesics. Lastly, the learning strategies used in this study is akin to that of the K-12 Curriculum which is performance-based. Speed drawing and kinesics as strategies in improving vocabulary retention are characterized by direct participation of learners.
The basic concept of learning is based on this theory. The mental processes as they are being influenced by either intrinsic and/or extrinsic factors, which eventually results in learning acquisition of an individual. Knowledge systems of cognitive structures are actively constructed by learners based on pre-existing cognitive structures. The teacher facilitates learning by providing an environment that promotes discovery and assimilation/accommodation. The cognitive processes are: observing, categorizing, and forming generalizations about our environment.
The problem or research question. The children have different learning styles, and these are ultimately responsible for the various forms of action of students to the process of mutual learning The importance of considering learning styles as a starting point in the design, implementation and monitoring of the teaching-learning process in the context of educational psychology and teaching itself is generally itself, which mainly concerns the work especially military school teacher Tcrn. Lauro Guerrero. Research on cognitive styles has had great importance for the methodologies applied by providing evidence to suggest that accommodate teaching methods favorite student styles, can bring greater satisfaction of these and also improved academics.
