Each part of the Conceptual Framework is essential and important to being an educator. Being a Reflective Practitioner means that the educator is prepared and knowledgeable in the content that is being taught. Some that is a Transformative Practitioner seeks to motivate students to learn and is creative with study materials. The Culturally Responsible Practitioner looks to all of the national, state, and local materials and standards to educate students. This individual provides order, commitment, and knowledge to students.
Because of this, they are encouraged to put an action plan in place for struggling students that provide alternative ways to learn concepts, in order to help that student achieve educational success. I think the main goal for both of these concepts is to encourage students to be interested in gaining knowledge in subject matter, and providing both an engaging environment for the student to learn in, as well as helping them to enjoy what they are learning as
However, this type of conversation requires the administrator to be very in tune with themselves and their responses. It encourages us to look at the situation from the other person’s perspective. Then, it wants us to “be open to learning, to really hearing the other person” (Styer). This is supposed to be enough to make us feel prepared to have a “Fierce Conversation.” We should constantly try to look at things from the other’s point of view. Following the conversation, it is expected that the subordinate and I have created a deeper, more respectful layer to our school-based relationship
It is necessary for a teacher to have the students organized and transitions smoothly, but all the other little details, if thought of, help to make for a great lesson. A strong, outstanding teacher must manage the class efficiently and have some level of structure. An outstanding teacher needs to be able to analyze data, set goals, but most importantly have an inner drive to learn more, achieve the goal, and constantly adapt and do better. Teaching is changing quickly, so we must change with it. We need to learn how the students learn and teach in that way.
The qualities I believe are necessary to be an outstanding teacher are leadership, content knowledge, classroom management, and the most important passion. It is important that teachers understand the content knowledge that is being taught; so they can they relay the information to their students. Classroom management and leadership in my opinion go hand in hand. As a teacher it is important to be a leader in the classroom. Students go to their teachers for guidance and support, therefore it is imperative that teachers are good listeners and display their leadership skills.
In this Capstone I learnt from it that is not only work in the individual it also works in a team or a group of people to encourage us to solve challenging problems, think critically and develop skills. For example, build a good relationship, well-communication, planning, research skills, media knowledge, public speaking, teamwork, self-confidence, target setting and so on. Competitive strategy is a strategy that develops student focusing on emerging understanding and the dynamic of an industry which is local issues. A process of reproduction, reflection and experiential learning are enhanced within solve problems, decision making, analysis of general critical, capabilities of creative thinking and so on. All of these will help us in our future
Often times, there are multiple factors that make it hard for the student to engage; therefore, it is important for the teacher to learn both how the student is feeling and, more importantly, why they are feeling that way in order to create constructive dialogue. As Scales notes in his article entitled, “Adolescent Thriving”, having a strong sense of individual passions, positive relational opportunities, and a sense of empowerment are all indicators of the well being and community engagement of adolescents, so the teacher must learn what the student is passionate about in order to engage with them (Scales 265). The questions outlined in Michael Nichols’ work “Take Your Time-I’m Listening” such as, “what’s the thing you’re most enthusiastic about these days?”,“what dreams and ideas do you have?”,“what is it you want to contribute?” and “what do you love to do and what are you good at doing?” are crucial starting points in the process of learning about the student and his or her passions (Nichols 144). Peter Benson communicates a similar idea in his Ted talk “Sparks: How Youth Thrive.” Here, he discusses the importance of finding “sparks” within the students for them to be on the pathway toward thriving, finding a purpose, engaging, and finding human connection, empathy, and joy in their lives and the things they do. In this approach, seeing the
In all IEPs there need to be goals set of for the student to work towards, which will help them meet the standards of the general curriculum, and aid in them improving upon their disability and hopefully reaching independence eventually. UDL is supposed to help the IEP team put together goals for the student to meet, specifically goals that are related to problem areas of the student, and that give the student a chance to learn what they need just like other students. This section in the IEP is very important because it lists out specific goals with great detail that Stacy must work on, including how she is supposed to meet these goals, how she will be evaluated for the goals, and what exactly has to be done in order for her to have completed the goal. These goals will really benefit Stacy because she will improve in the areas these goals are focusing on, and she will be able to keep up with the general curriculum in her own way without falling behind or struggling because of her learning
Educators are always trying to find ways to improve their instructional practices. A great way for educators to make instructional decisions is through assessments. One form of assessment that is used to determine what students known regarding a certain concept are diagnostic interviews. Diagnostic interviews are especially helpful for new students as well as lower achieving students to pin point students strengths and weaknesses. Diagnostic interviews can be used across all content areas and provide educators with an ample amount of important information.
It is because it is very important for a team leader to know everyone in the team. A team leader should know their team members well to guide them more easily or to arrange their task based on their expertise. As conflict occurs, as a team members also should get the whole story first in regards to the conflict. This could help to solve the conflict efficiently and effectively. In order to solve conflicts that occur between the team members, discussion of both sides of a perspective is a must.
There are many important steps in becoming a critical thinker. The first is to adopt the attitude of a critical thinker, next, to recognize and avoid critical thinking hindrances, third, identify and characterize arguments, forth, evaluate information sources, and lastly, to be able to evaluate arguments. Why is critical thinking important? Look at it this way. When students are given the facts that are required, they will memorize
It is prepared for students to self-assess if they meet each criterion, a vital self-scaffolding technique. Not only that but most often the criteria are linked one another, hence they formulate the learning. Holton & Clarke (2006) highly recommends to empower the students to develop their own problem solving skills, with this in mind, the first process success criterion encourages students to analyse the question and get a greater picture before they start solving it. This is transferable skill that can be applied with any
