Literature Review De Jesus (2012), begins by depicting what we should hope to see when we enter a classroom full of students; an instructor teaching and students undoubtedly working hard at learning, but in actuality, what we are more likely to find, is a teacher providing instruction with some of the students learning, while others are not. Why is that? De Jesus (2012) continues to say that everyone is distinct. Every learner varies in background knowledge, cultural, social, and cognitive development. Some are more visual learners, while others learn better by listening, yet others will remember and record data easier through hands on experience such as creating projects.
With issues ranging from class size, fixed budgets, how every student learns differently, students with special needs, advanced students to inequality among different levels of students it is a challenge for educators to overcome. • Differences Among Students: Students must be accommodated in their diverse educational need in order for the educator to be accomplished in their job. Students of the same age can be different in their willingness to learn, in their interests, what style of learning works best for them, their experiences, and home circumstances( Wikipedia). Some students are eager to learn while others are resistant to learning. There are also students who are adva... ... middle of paper ... ...on in today`s schooling is Differentiating Instruction, which is simply to change ones teaching methods to help cater to each individual student’s needs.
Differentiation should occur naturally and involve individual, class and group work to allow for the differences in all students and all subjects of study (Tomlinson, 2001). Probably the most important aspect of differentiation is the idea of challenging all learners at their level instead of giving extra work to those students whom learn the concepts quickly. Differentiation in Classrooms A struggle for many teachers could be the idea of implementing differentiation in their classrooms. Making twenty-four lesson plans for the twenty-four children in a class is not practical or appropriate. Children should all be learning the same basic ideas in differentiated lessons but how much as well as how a child learns is what will vary (Tomlinson, 2001).
Schools have developed new approaches to reach these previously underserved students while maintaining passing scores for the whole student body. To ensure academic success, teachers employ a multi-strategy approach to develop students of differing abilities and backgrounds. Every student is different in what skills and experiences they bring to the classroom; their personality, background, and interests are as varied as the ways in which teachers can choose to instruct them. Differentiated instruction has been an effective method in which teachers can engage students of various backgrounds and achieve whole-class success. When using differentiated instruction, teachers develop lesson strategies for each student or groups of students that provide different avenues of learning but all avenues arrive at the same learning goal.
Teachers that trust their principals and feel are taken into consideration will work harder to meet and exceed expectations. Honesty, communication, confidence and respect between leader and teacher will lead to great team work. As mentioned before, leadership styles take an important role in running a school. Unfortunately, many principals have not yet defined their leadership style and struggle to administrate their school. They are responsible not only of teachers and students, but of every employee in the school.
What are culturally responsive classrooms? A culturally responsive classroom is an environment where teachers and administration address the needs and interest of children so that the children can reach academic success. The way the curriculum is created and presented to the students is major. When students feel included and feel like their identity is being represented in their learning they become motivated and engaged. When the students do not feel included they become disengaged and feel as if their teachers do not care.
Every student’s learning experience is unique and extraordinary. Every student has a personal story, personal strengths, and personal weaknesses. Every student strives to be something different, has a different passion and feels passionless and hopeless at times. I believe that it is a teacher’s job and responsibility to constantly be a role model, give students a sense of encouragement, and do everything one can for a student to grow. All classrooms should be a space where every student feels appreciated.
Students may have a hard time in a traditional classroom where they are forced to work and their time to explore is taken away. Reading comprehension is one of the many important skills that students learn beginning from a young age. Education has shifted to be of more importance for all children, and parents, teachers, and curriculum developers need to have the best resources for helping students learn to be great readers. So, as the demand for school readiness grows, and the importance of reading comprehension is stressed, researchers can look at the school that works best. This can be done through direct comparison of reading comprehensio... ... middle of paper ... ...urnal of Wellbeing, 1(2), 214-225.
The students are not alike, but most of them have similarities. For a teacher she/he needs to find a philosophy that works for the majority of the class. It is great to have a variety of the philosophies in the classroom since every philosophy could help to every student. Education on a child includes many people during this process. The first people would be the parents.
