We have to make the work that the children do challenging yet not to simple. We must push our children to reach for that little extra step in their cognitive thinking. We must try to get them to succeed just a little past their limit, but not too fa... ... middle of paper ... ...make sure that we are influencing our students in a positive way. The things that we say and do are easily absorbed by little ears that we do not think here us. Guiding our students through educational work is one aspect of being a teacher, however, the other half is helping them to build their character and understand good morals and values.
The surveys provided told me my teaching and management style places limits, but simultaneously encourages independence. I also encourage and guide students by asking questions and exploring options. This focus is on the students’ needs and to help develop their independence. As an elementary school teacher these methods would be very beneficial to the students, because it would prepare them for the independence that they would expect when going into middle or high school. Students would learn to think more critically and on the spot, which is very useful in the “real world.” The students would be able to voice their opinions freely, whereas they cannot do so as much with strict guidance and outlines.
His theory also mentioned that maternal deprivation can affect children's development in long-terms. As parents are children's first counter parts they have great influence on them especially their parenting styles. According to Baumrind's parenting styles children's behaviors are the reflection of how parents treat them. I believe that it is important to have a balance when we are dealing with children, I noticed that my parents are more of authoritative which gives me the freedom to enjoy my life yet the idea of working towards my goals.

My teaching methods will relate to more up to date techniques. I would like to do something different, take a little of each philosopher’s beliefs, and credit my own educational philosophies. I agree with Socrates’ belief that students should use good judgement in all their actions. I know elementary students are not going to be aware of good judgement entirely, but they should be taught through environment and experiences like Foucault. Foucault believes everything is determined by experience in what kind of life you will have and I do agree that experiences shape people into what they become later in life.
Generally, humans learn from their experience as soon as their eyes begin to see the reality around them after they are born. Their raw experiences from their parents, friends, school and the society, as they grow, develop their meaning perspective. Acting on their acquired knowledge, beliefs, moral values and emotional perspectives tended to shape their attitude and character that becomes the person they are. However, since their flawed meaning perspective have not been challenged to undergo transformation advancing in age, therefore, their flawed perspective created wrong values for them that somehow flawed their judgment and character as well. How can this personality problem be dealt with the use of Mezirow’s “Theory of Transformative Learning?
By using the tools of love and empathy, communication and engagement with your child this process can be a situation that you conquer together both coming out with a better character. Teaching your children the art of self-respect, respect for others will only come through teaching boundaries. Though we are usually desperate to see changes RIGHT NOW (especially with older children or teens), we must build a foundation day after
Early Childhood Education teachers know that our children deserve to learn the important lessons from us and to acquire important habits with our help. Teachers and future teachers want our children to grow up to be responsible adults. Also, teachers are trying to find the perfect way to deal with children with different type of behavior. Teachers have to deal with parents, giving them a satisfactory result of their child developmental progress and security. My philosophy of guiding young children behavior is to use the combination of collaboration, positive attitude, and patience.
This will guide them to realize how their actions and decisions will affect themselves and others. Discipline plays a key part in education. Respect from your students will make the classroom a better atmosphere. Rules should be established on the first day. Rules should be a thoughtful process so they can be carried out to be affective, but logical consequences.
Students who receive direct instruction on self-advocacy and are involved in their IEP meetings achieve more goals and improve their academic skills. Not only are academic goals met, but also they develop important self-advocacy and communication skills to help them as they go on to high school, college, and to find employment (Mason et al., 2004). Learning these skills at a young age help students cope with their learning disability and allow them to survive in any situation that life faces them with (McCarthy,
In the educational setting students learn manners, how to respect their peers and their elders. In fact, I feel that this is one of the more important purposes of the schools. Children learn how to interact with other students, and teachers. Especially in the early years, students are taught to be honest, and to share. While these are lessons that might also be taught at home, it is important to reinforce proper behavior at schools.
