As I reflect on what I have learned through the first half of the course, I am enlighten of the information that I have read as it influence me as a Therapist and an upcoming teacher. To learn about how to manage a classroom and recognize behaviors in a student to establish a successful classroom setting is always important to a teacher, but to actually read different strategies and discuss the information with other classmate to get a valid understanding in the information, improves my knowledge and capability to provide the information with both my clients and future classroom
I leant how to make a lesson plan with clear instructions, well-graded language and student centered. Even though they needed hard work but they worth it. What I have learnt from observing: Peer observations and video observations were a good chance to see the written theories we have learnt from the core components in practice. The things I have learnt are the following: • How can the classroom, the teacher and the activities affect the learners by setting a friendly and relaxing environment. • The role of motivation in helping the learners to progress in their learning experience.
“Every phase of instruction must be accompanied by a means of checking for understanding” (Fisher & Frey, 2008, p. 37). I have realized that assessing students’ understanding of the concept on which the lesson is based is a critical step in determining the flow of the lesson. A quick recap in the form of questions and answers works well for me to not only correct misconceptions but also improve learning as it helps the students connect the day’s lesson with previous learning. In my experience, all assessment may not count towards a grade but there should be feedback for learners as well as us facilitators to know where they stand with respect to achieving the lesson objectives. “Students achieve more when they have a clear picture of the expectations”
Questioning can also aid the educator by assessing the students’ comprehension and understanding, thereby allowing the modification of instruction if necessary (Chappell & Thompson, 1999). The form, content, and purpose of the que... ... middle of paper ... ...earned through this research that the questioning strategy I employ must be tailored to fit the goal of the lesson. My strategy must assess prior knowledge and constantly monitor student learning throughout the lesson. My use of proper questioning will facilitate deeper understanding of concepts and will enable the students to grow and expand their knowledge. References Chappell, M.F.
“The link between past experiences, student interest, and present learning is that we draw upon previous experiences and memories as we learn” (Slavin, 2006). It is the teachers responsibility to consider the past experiences of the student as well as interests in order ot make a lesson more appealing, engaging and interesting. By knowing the students background a teacher can better motivate and engage the student in new information. The students past experiences can help when building new concepts on top of foundational concepts. Students will learn more efficiently and smoothly if they have concepts to build upon instead of introducing unsystematic bits of information that become hard to connect and up confusing the student.
Reflection on developments Planning choices, staging and execution This was the main issue that hindered LS1 from being a successful lesson, however, after the feedback with my tutor, what I thought was my capacity to analyse the language aims was in fact the way I chose how to stage the procedure plan and how I did not take into consideration my students’ perspective of the class. For that reason, I decided to tackle my planning and staging more effectively in my LS2. By narrowing the focus of the lesson, as well as keeping my students’ interest, I could interact more naturally with them and fostered more opportunities for personalisation. Reflective teaching After LS1, I have consulted with other colleagues who have also taught the same
I feel that his analysis about learning about realistic activities and getting students to engage in each aspect of learning will allow the student to acquire more meaningful connections in learning. I do feel that when a student sees the relevance in what is being taught, they will be able to make meaningful connections and also progress both critical knowledge and also have more success at attacking the challenging parts. Perkins Theory of learning by playing the whole game is a fun way to conceptualize teaching while shaping the minds of our students. While using baseline experiences, teachers can challenge current thinking to entice their students. Giving students the end concept as a main focus, while putting all the pieces together, helps students engage in critical thinking aspects of learning.
Some teachers may not leave set work for the students to complete, which means the casual teacher will need to provide the students with highly engaging and interesting learning activities to minimise disruptions in the classroom and to help obtain appropriate behaviours. Turning Point Michele put in place a number is principles and practices to ensure an effective learning environment was established whilst causal teaching. Firstly, Michele took time to get to know the students, which helped to build positive relationships. Michele did this by talking to the students about what they already know and what their interests are. This discussion usually would lead to brainstorming activities and attentive discussions.

My mission is to provide an educational setting for each student that includes motivation and self-discipline and to instill a love of learning so that students will become lifelong learners. I will teach students problem solving and decision making skills so they can become self-sufficient adults as well as good citizens that will contribute to the community in a positive way.

Furthermore we learn about the different ways of counselling. In this class we learn about difference between career and job. Also we learn about different skills that we can improve on and should start using in our life. In this essay I will be analyzing the topics we learned in class, also I will be analyzing why we learned these topics and how these topics will help me or any counsellor is a good counsellor. I also will be talking about how I grow throughout the class.
