Even though the basic classroom consisted of some desks, a teacher front and center, and little ones eager for recess and masters of eye avoiding, it has evolved heavily with great detail. “Changing the physical structure of a classroom is one way to alter the environment of a classroom…support the interactive environment of group work, which allows students to control their own learning and presents them with direct feedback in the learning process.” ( Mary Ann Polityka.)

Classroom Management Philosophy - Classroom Management Plan Theoretical Introduction My philosophy of classroom management is that of eliciting student responsibility for their own behavior. I will as much as it is possible always include students in setting classrooms rules and consequences. I feel doing this is part and parcel of their education.

Technology provides many major benefits to society, proven by its dramatic advancement over the last 30 years, but it also presents the question- If we are choosing to make our lives easier by using technology, which in essence is what it is made for, are we really learning/ comprehending as much as we once did....   [tags: internet literacy, mobile technology, reading]

Constructivism in the Classroom - 1. Constructivism is a method that says students learn by building their schema by adding to their prior knowledge by the use of scaffolding (Rhinehart Neas).

Pro: By using a constructivist approach to teaching, students will be “fully engaged in their own learning” (Rhinehart Neas). This allows the students to make sense of what they are doing by relating it to the real world and where they could use the information in their future....   [tags: scaffolding, teaching method]
