It should provide them with feedback on their skill progression, motivate them to improve and contribute greatly to their overall development. It also guides the teacher, showing them both how and what the children are learning. This, in turn, enables them to adjust their lessons to account for all students in the classroom and self-reflect on their teaching practices for future planning. Given the wide
This is key because when ideas are made known to the classroom, it will spark healthy arguments and communication among peers. Teachers should form a classroom community and make known the goals that the students need to reach together. Setting high expectations for each and every student will lead to success. My thoughts on this are that if teachers would implement this strategy despite differences in students, then our schools would have higher success rates. Equity is very important in the classroom and my beliefs line up with this article exactly.
Bass (1985) asserted that transformational leaders use inspiration to communicate organizational vision and establish a strong school culture. It is based on this assertion that this theory was selected, as in communicating their vision, a transformational leader (principal) allows teachers and students to become informed about the significance of their efforts in accomplishing school goals; hence resulting in an underperforming school being reclassified as a turnaround school. In addition, this theory is selected based on the premises that a principal as a transformational leader has the potential to develop a personal rapport with their followers (Bass & Avolio, 1993); and with the establishment of relationships built on inspiration and personal attention, it will foster an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation which creates a turnaround school. The culture of a school and structures within the school which foster shared decision making are essential dimensions of transformational leadership. These are the dimensions that are uniquely aligned to the morale and disposition of the members of a school (Schein 1985) Transformational leaders will utilize practices that align with the vision, goals, and expectations that also give individual consideration to school members with the purpose of enacting change within the organization; hence, bringing about a turnaround school.
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.
Title : The Switch of Speech Style Used by Erin Gruwell in Freedom Writers Movie 1. INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the Study Language is more than just a tool for communication that helps the speaker to deliver the information to the listener, but rather as an important key feature on leading people (Baxter, 2010). In the education context, teachers are considered as leaders who “place their students’ learning as their primary goal and work within their own classrooms to improve student achievement” (Merideth, 2007, p. 3). As a leader in the language classroom, the teacher’s language product holds a very important role in the achievement of the students (Diaz, Lynne T. and Rico, 2004, p. 293). Language product used by the teacher is influenced
Since the lesson log was now implemented, the teacher required discussing the lesson effectively and efficiently. The knowledge of a teacher should beyond than to the knowledge of a student to make her/his activity effective. “Metacognition enhances and enriches the learning experiences (St.Clair.n.d).It will enhance their capabilities in teaching performance by using metacognition. It would help to the teacher improve their teaching performance and used a different strategies to make the lesson effective. They should know the new implemented lesson log to make it effective in the classroom setting.
In order to change the way their students learn for a good way, teachers have to alternate and change the skills they teach. By releasing their total control over students ' opportunities and wishes to learn, teachers as leader of school culture permit students to take more responsibility and obligation for their own learning at schools. There is no doubt that it is easy to say, arduous to do, yet necessary if we are going to change the culture of our schools and classroom for better condition. Therefore, the author would like to point on leaders role at school. Various things depend on principal’s choice.
Assessment also gives teachers useful information about how to improve their teaching methods. In classroom assessment, since teachers themselves develop, administer and analyze the questions, they are more likely to apply the results of the assessment to their own teaching. Therefore, it provides feedback on the effectiveness of instruction and gives students a measure of their progress. The purpose of classroom assessment is to give students the opportunity to show what they have learned rather than catching them out or to show what they have not learned. Through using appropriate classroom assessment strategies and techniques, teachers can increase their students' motivation and show them how well they have learned the
Being an “instructional leader” encompasses the main aspects of what is expected as a teacher, such as creating lesson plans and check on a student’s progress, but the main goal is to do so with intention. This means while it might be easier to teach from a book and save time by using another teacher’s lesson plans, the educator puts more effort into creating a lesson plan tailored to the strengths of his or her students. This also takes the educator genuinely understanding and being “involved in each child’s learning process,” (pg. 26). If the educator can get involved like this, then he or she can become a more effective teacher by creating activities that the students can be more involved in based off of how they
The implementation of inclusion in the classroom by the teacher was evident in the policies to be vital to its success or failure in the classroom. This requires school leaders to ensure their staff understand the impact and explain the significance of creating an environment where every student feels included so that the students will feel included, participate more and benefit in the classroom. Research by Cook et al (2000 as cited in Konza, 2008) found that when teachers show more interest, engagement and experience with inclusion they ultimately had a greater concern for students with special
I feel that the consequence policy had appropriate consequences for different violations, I thought that having different consequences for different levels of offenses was a good idea for the elementary school. Consequences are extremely important for students to learn how to behave and what is and is not appropriate for them to do in school. The curriculum enforcement policy ties directly into my group (the curriculum committee). The curriculum enforcement policy had different parts that were incorporated into it that all passed, most of the policy focused directly on having the teachers collaborate with one another. As a future educator I agreed with the policy immensely, I feel that in order to have a successful teaching staff collaboration is key.
I want to become an assistant principal for one simple reason, the children. I believe that all children can learn under the right conditions. With this in mind, I feel that instructional leaders are responsible for ensuring that the conditions for learning are embedded in the school’s culture. Although my role as a Learning Team Facilitator enables me to have an impact on the academic achievement of students through working with teachers, I believe that becoming an assistant principal will help me to be more of a driving force throughout the school. I possess several personal attributes that are essential in serving in the capacity of an assistant principal.
