Figure 1 is a summary of the students’ learning throughout the learning segment. I administrated this test as a pre-assessment prior to the lesson one and administered it again after the completion of lesson 3. This test is a compilation of students’ learning and it demonstration how they met the standards and objectives that were set out for them to achieve. The evaluation criteria in which this assessment and all other assessment in the individual lessons did was not altered. Even though the students have different learning needs, the assessment met all of the needs for all learners. Each of the 20 students’ pre and post-test scores are listed along with the averages of each and growth for the whole class. Students were graded based
Some reflecting strategies that I will use are note taking, remaining open-minded, and staying organized and detailed oriented. Another key concept is comprehensive planning. I will make it my priority to plan engaging lesson plans that promotes diversity and constructivism learning theory by building upon students’ existing artistic knowledge and life experiences through critical thinking and reflection during and after each lesson. I will implement a variety of lessons that incorporate individual and group settings that encourages students’ academic development and hands-on learning. I will be able to evaluate my student’s understanding and performance of each lesson objectives through formative and summative assessments, and the overall completion of the given lesson. Some examples of formative assessments are observation, using questioning strategies, and journaling. Some summative assessments examples are lesson rubrics, performance tasks, and art portfolios. Students will also be able to write a self-evaluation after each lesson, and comprehend new strategies and techniques through the collaboration of class discussions.
Education can be for both better and worse. Several different views of education are located everywhere in A Lesson Before Dying. While most people would say education is what helps people get somewhere in this world, being too educated can lead people to becoming selfish individuals. Whether it is about black v. white education, book smarts v. street smarts, or how education does not mean everything, Ernest J. Gaines novel is bleeding with ways on how education affects the events in the novel.
The article “Acting on Beliefs in Teacher Education for Cultural Diversity” by Gay (2010), who is a Professor at University of Washington in Faculty of Education, focuses on educating teachers for cultural diversity in classroom environments, which is frequently discussed but not a well-developed topic. According to Gay (2010), the society we live in has a huge impact on our lives, although we try to ignore or minimize its effect on educational area.

In this assignment, I will be writing on how to apply the principles of pedagogy in my area of specialism. Effective teacher uses diverse teaching strategies and universal approaches that suit situations, different strategies in different grouping of learners to improve learning outcomes, There are different teaching styles that suit different learners backgrounds and ability.

The virtual field experience video is an insightful way to determine the effectiveness of a particular teaching practice. This video allowed me to also analyze the content of the lesson and the characteristics of students whom the lesson was taught. I was then able to look at the student population and teaching method to determine best teaching practices that was used by this Dr. Bear. In reviewing the video on Dr. Bear and conducting a task analysis sheet on the content of the lesson itself, I was able to follow the teaching practice, which appears to be aimed at determining from onset the developmental level of the students as well as their general knowledge of the lesson to be taught. This is achieved by allowing the students talk amongst themselves and share information freely and then input the pertinent information related to the lesson on a chart.

I can consider my professional development experience in two parts: Before I became a teacher and after I became a teacher. During my teacher education at university I used to imagine myself as the teacher of that lesson and I used to try to draw some tips for my future job. I observed my teachers’ way of teaching, their rapport with students and their reactions. I always commented on why or why not they behave in that specific way and search for examples to be applied in my future job as a teacher. I believe that these observations provided me with some valuable and conclusive clues for my job. For example, one of my English literature teachers at university was the most outstanding example for me to be considered as an effective teacher.
According to Faculty of Education at University of Cambridge, dialogic teaching is a way of teaching where talk is an effective way to carry out teaching and learning.

School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. 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.
During my lesson, I did have to alter my instructional plan as I taught the lesson. Therefore, the reason that I had to change my instructional plan was because, my students needed for me to model the lesson concept more than I had planned. Furthermore, the students were able to effectively complete their individual work after I added additional time to model for them how to find the main idea of a piece of text.
