In which, the students would engage more to learn about the new ideas or knowledge. Progressivists also believed that education should allow students to learn from each other to create a better society. The teacher’s role in the classroom is to keep in check that the students are on task but not under mind their new ideas while doing an experiment. The methods they use are student focused or orientated such as discussion, mental modeling. The students can engage with their peers and discuss their new ideas or own opinions with other without any judgement of being wrong.
Next time I did this lesson I would actually count how many thumbs were up and how many were down. In order to get a better observation of my students. The students learning was impacted by communicating to me, the teacher, how they felt about the lesson and how comfortable they felt with the material of the lesson. While doing the lesson I could tell the students who had their thumbs up were completing the lesson with no problem and the students with thumbs down were struggling a little bit. If students didn’t understand that material I would also try to explain the problem in a different way using working like bigger or smaller rather than greater than or less than.

In addition, cooperative learning helps students face criticism and criticize other students’ ideas (Greczi, 2014). Based on my own experience, I came across people who have a hard time trying to face criticisms from other people. As a teacher, I am responsible to create a learning environment where every student can bravely face criticisms from other student and at the same time giving criticisms to others. Because cooperative learning develops skills stated earlier, I believe that my students would benefit from my class if they learn how to manage and correctly appreciate criticisms.
Certain students have certain needs so that they can learn more effectively. Students need to be able to interact, have life like examples of what they are learning and each student has a different way of learning, which each teacher should uncover. This way today’s students will grow up to be someone in life and not wander around, lost in life. This is why teachers should try to connect with students to create a better learning experience. Many teaches today teach by putting up a powerpoint with lots of notes and making them copy it.
As teachers we plan our lessons and think to ourselves, "my students are going to love this lesson and will be able to understand what I am teaching", but sometimes that isn 't the case. You may plan a lesson in hopes that your students understand but it doesn 't go as planned. Every student learns differently and thinks differently and because of this we, as teachers must learn to differentiate our lessons. This may require us to change the way we deliver our lesson, change the activities for our lessons or even change the wording of our material so students understand. In this paper, I will be differentiating a lesson plan based on student readiness, student interest and student learning profile for content, process, and product.
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.

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.
Educational psychologists have long promoted the importance of metacognition for regulating and supporting student learning but the question arises; how understanding of metacognition improve the way a students learn? There are number of strategies through which they can improve their learning; firstly, pre-service teacher’s used the self-regulated learning (SRL) method to enhance student learning.

They use quasi-experiment because they want to see the action of retrospective learning in teachers to examine how this learning is helpful for pre-service teachers and is pre-services physics teacher is capable in teaching self-regulated learning (SRL) to their students. Those Pre-services teacher who scan both problematic and effective experiences develop more in their teaching SRL strategies.

I believe that in doing so, students will learn from their own mistakes. I believe students will react more effectively to being taught discipline so they can learn from their mistakes. I feel more comfortable adhering to the school-adopted classroom management plan; but I would have to ask my principle for a little room for my own twist on the program.
This will help build a community within the classroom and help my students to learn better. I will also work on my non-verbal communication because that is a key point while working with ELs. Since they may not know the language, you have to rely on non-verbal communication to get the point across such as a pat on the shoulder or a thumbs up. Non-verbal communication will help me learn about my EL student or students. Another way this will affect my decisions I will make as a teacher is be there to help the children, learn from your coworkers because they are there to help you.
Teachers make sure they do this by making time for their students, which means having personal meetings with them. When teachers use their own time to help students, it further shows how supportive teachers are. When students know they can depend on a teacher, the students then feel more comfortable in their learning situation and will be more likely succeed. To further emphasize this support of teachers to students, many teachers use a method of ‘Praise, Question, Polish’; which helps to critique students on a comfortable basis. By using this method, students also learn to become more independent when teachers show them, gradually, that students will learn to write better with the ease of criticism.
