Reflective teaching is a process of self- assessment and self- observation. Through reflective teaching, the teachers can explore and discover their own ideas and practices, which can make the teachers more proficient and skilled in teaching. Teaching is an intricate and highly accomplished process, and teachers must implement self evaluation (reflection) to make learning effective. The paper highlights the importance of reflective teaching and its impact on pedagogical process as well as language learners. It focuses on the teacher’s ideas; classroom practices to make teaching more refine and acquire a rich experience by amending the drawbacks.
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.
It also helps Board members to decide and plan the resources needed for making further progress. Assessment for learning enables a mutual learning between teachers and students. The most important of all is that information gathered through the process of assessment should be used to improve the teaching and
A more formal meaning of professional development is contribution and participation in courses, programs, workshops and other activities by the aim of developing and bring up-to-date professional skills (Schwartz & Bryan, 1998). Thus as Diaz-Maggioli (2004) defines professional development for teachers refers to a career-long process in which teachers fine-tune their teaching to meet student
Introduction It is important as teacher that we provide an environment that maximizes student learning. Thesis: A school designed a combined program between teachers. Mr Gino a secondary teacher decided to collaborate with Mrs Vans a primary teacher. Using this scenario, we can understand the significant contribution of Piaget and Vygotsky as well as their limitations. Influences of Cognitive Development Piaget’s major achievement is his understanding of cognitive development.
3.1) Theories of Behaviour Management Behaviour management is a tool, a system, generates learning environment to encourage positive behaviour and minimise the opportunity for negative conduct to occur. It is like modifying and change learner's action in a positive manner where the primary focus lies on maintaining order. Many theorists presented their views in their research work on the understanding of the nature of the behaviour BILL ROGER is an education consultant and author present his work on behaviour management, discipline, effective teaching, and stress management etc. and also lectures widely covers the topic to both the learner and the teacher for the challenges facing in leadership in educational premises. Bill Roger recommended
To capitalize on their coaching investment, organizations must work to nurture this type of pro-development culture. The importance of a coaching culture in promoting engagement with coaching has been highlighted by a number of authors (Cox, 2012; Gormley & Van Nieuwerburgh, 2014). Anderson, Frankovelgia, and Hernez- Broome (2009) surmised that a coaching culture with more trust and openness in the organization leads to more participation and transparent organizational decision- making. Further, this survey revealed the following range of organizational benefits from having a coaching culture: 1) Employee performance, 2) Engagement and retention, 3) Collaboration and teamwork, and 4) An improved ability to execute strategy and adapt to
It includes chapters that deal with relevant, contemporary aspects of the feedback process including peer feedback, online feedback, learner-centred feedback, feedback formulation, as well as feedback on specific skill areas. The various chapters present a blend of theoretical overviews, action research-based empirical studies, and practical implications. Therefore, the mixture of theoretical considerations, documentations, beliefs, experiences, materials, practices and advice are written with a teacher’s voice. There is sufficient evidence to support the selection of some of the methods of feedback in the treatment in my research, like, using scales in feedback. However, the volume needs to be tempered accordingly because it covers a range of maturities and language modalities outside the scope of my research, and it is not based on Japanese research.
Education professors must "talk the talk" and "walk the walk." College professors can assess preservice teachers' readiness levels, interests, and learning profiles within their college classes. They can then model differentiated instruction of education course content, classroom activities, and products based on the results of needs identified by these pre-assessments. In addition, college professors must "think aloud" and let the preservice teachers know what is differentiated, how it is differentiated, and why they chose to differentiate the instruction the way they did. Once the college students have experienced differentiation and understand how they differ as learners themselves, they can begin to understand how their future students differ from each other and what will be required in order to meet the various needs they will have in their classrooms.
• The design of the learning experience includes the possibility to learn from natural consequences, mistakes and successes. The Experiential Learning Process: A number of steps are involved in experiential learning that offer student a hands-on, collaborative and reflective learning experience which helps them to “fully learn new skills and knowledge” (Haynes, 2007). Although learning content is important, but experiential learning emphasis on the learning taken place through the process which is at the heart of experiential learning. During each step of the experience, students will engage with the content, the instructor, each other as well as self–reflect and apply what they have learned in another situation. The following describes the steps that comprise experiential learning as noted by (Haynes, 2007, para.
