Partnership between parents and schools plays a crucial role in a childs development. A positive parent-teacher relationship helps your child feel good about school and be successful in school. It demonstrates to your child that they can trust their teacher, because you do. The partnership between parents/carers and the school needs to be a two way relationship, the parents need information about what and how their child is learning, and the teacher needs important feedback from the parent about the childâ€™s academic and social development. This positive partnership makes a child feel like the important people in his life are working together for the benefit of him/her.
Some pros that I could see in implementing this in the classroom is that students are getting early exposure to differences in color, language, gender and physical ability of people different from themselves. Students are also being exposed in a safe environment where they can continue to grow their knowledge on diversity. Along with exposure teachers are also able to share teachable moments with students through questioning and different activities. In contrast there are also some cons. One significant con that I can think of is that some of the topics may be sensitive and be too deep for students of such a young age to comprehend.
6. Explain how the ethos, mission, aims and values of a school may be reflected in working practices. Ethos is usually based on the character of the school, its’ philosophy or more commonly known as the atmosphere of the school, does it provide a safe and trusted environment that promotes and guides successful learning? Its’ building blocks are the values and beliefs that go towards making up the character of the school itself and is developed through various talks with the staff, the parents and also representatives of the community. The type of school can have an effect on its Ethos e.g.
She allowed me to supervise the students during activities, as well as help measure their reading comprehension over the months I volunteered. I was able to have a connection with the teacher I was paired with; however, the most important relationship was with each student. Each student has a unique personality, and or a different need, some varying from day to day. You must really have a compassion for teaching kids how to learn and grow or you will not succeed in the early ages of childhood
A good teacher evolves and changes over time. Lastly the author states that listening to their students is a gesture of grace. The author’s point is that being a good teacher is about learning the gestures of grace. believe the author is saying to be a good teacher you need to be open minded, able to understand their students, have high patience, be caring and kind, and be able to change and become
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.
Parents trust their children to be taught and educated at school, to be hoped that they will become good and qualified human beings. A teacher takes an important role in motivating the students to get their success in their life. A teacher could bring positive or negative energy to the students that someday will bring him to become a teacher to follow or to avoid by the students. The teachers also play an important role in
The benefit and purpose of school is to gain new knowledge and socialize with other people. The importance of school is taken to consideration as it helps you to meet the grades that you need to go further in life, and the skills/knowledge that can be accomplished and improved. School opens up a lot of opportunities for young people because it is the one place where they go to get new life skills and experience. School is somewhere where young people are able to practice their techniques/learning and form social bonds with other students. School is not just for learning but also for young people to help from in a way that they can also build their social skills and attributes when interacting with other students.
To make this both a better experience for me and the students at the elementary school it is important to consider how to communicate in a way that will help the students with diverse learning styles. Some of the students will learn by observing while others may learn from doing. Another thing to consider when managing the students and the activities is the different skill levels of the students. It is important to challenge the students that are more advanced while also challenging the students that are not as
Communicating regularly with their child’s teachers can motivate them to do extremely well in school, produce better school attendance and improve behaviour at home and in the school (Williams, 2010:1). In line with the above writers’ view on parent- teacher communication, most teachers reported that parental communication with teachers was crucial to enhance children’s academic progress and behavioural development through direct contact, but this is limited in the study areas. In contrast, most students in terms of parent-teacher communication reported that they were often concerned with the child’s academic failure and behavioural problem if happened at the teaching learning activities in the school through direct contact with parents able to speak with teachers. They also discussed with parents to solve children’s problems, and to inform children’s academic progress through face to face communication with subject teachers at the school. But most parents did not always respond to verbal and written notes that pass from
There are other ways you can learn in the classroom, you can learn from the environment that is around you. This process is known as enculturation and it can affect and even enhance learning. Repetition is what really affects someone in a culture. By seeing, hearing, and doing things over and over they start to become part of who you are. From the class I observed I noticed that the teacher often used repetition as the way to get the students to learn and get the correct answer.
According to Eccles and Gootman (2002), providing a safe space for the students is essential for positive development (p. 89). If students do not feel safe in the classroom, they are more likely to foster feelings of fear and insecurity (Eccles and Gootman, 2002, p. 90). When the developmental alliance creates a supportive relationship and a positive classroom environment, the student is able to grow and connect with the youth. This relationship can help translate to greater success in school because of the support of the developmental alliance and the classroom (Connected Learning: Inspiring Mentors and
This positive narration has two types of effects within the classroom. The students receiving the positive narration are more often inclined to continue the habits of getting right to work, the positive feedback establishes to them that they are doing exactly what should be done and it often seems to make a difference for the students. Second the positive narration acts as a catalyst for the students who may have been lagging or delayed in starting their work, as a simple reminder that there is a task at hand that they should be working on. Students seem to be appreciative of the positive narration as a way of justifying their proactiviness, many who have received positive feedback have created a habit of getting right to work in Lucas’
