This benefits the teacher, providing them with the children’s understanding, enabling them to plan future lessons, so that they can meet the needs of the range of learners in the class. Primarily assessment is the reason behind ‘raising children’s standards of achievement’ (Briggs et al, 2008, p.9). It prepares teachers to make lessons specific for the children, for example, obtaining resources and planning scaffolding. Throughout my placement I used assessment for learning. Using this assisted me in the planning of the next sessions in order to make work at their level and differentiate it.
The essential goal of education is to give children the knowledge and means to entire the workforce and achieve success (Carmichael, 2009). It is important as teachers that we welcome the diverse needs of all students. While it is fundamental that teachers are well-informed on the content they are teaching and are responsible to guide student learning, there is much more to emerging student learning. To develop students’ education, schools should provide a structure of classroom communities conductive to learning. School environments must be respectful, caring, stable, and stimulating atmospheres in order to enhance the learning environment.
Kindergarten teachers rate these motivational and social emotional skills as more essential to schools success than being able to hold a pencil or read. They would like for children to be ready for learning which incorporates being able to cooperate, follow directions, demonstrate self-control and “pay attention”. This theory is one several strengths that this article portrays. Not only does it depict the issue in social emotional development but it also provid... ... middle of paper ... ...by their peers. In preschool, the relationships children develop with one another can have an enduring impact on academic achievement, because they can provide more positive feelings about school and enthusiasm to participate in classroom activities, which can lead to superior levels of achievement.
I believe a classroom should be a sanctuary of learning in which the students know from the beginning what is expected of them and the teacher should discuss what is expected of her as a teacher. There needs to be an understanding amongst all involved with the children education. This understanding can lead to a fun filled adventurous classroom that encourages students to strive for the best. I believe when students and teachers are able to learn from each other, the learning environment can be successful. A successful classroom involves having an effective educator who believes they can make a difference in their students’ lives by believing in themselves as productive teachers.
Teachers are encouraged to develop these strategies and where possibly implement them into their teaching to help enhance student memory. This can be achieved by teaching specific memory recall strategies and when to use them, examples such as visual representations or asking the students to demonstrate what strategies they find useful, are all good ideas for teachers to take into consideration when trying to improve student memory. Strategies help students when it comes to studying what they have learned in the easiest most effective way possible; however theses strategies may become unhelpful at one point in time if a child is emotionally
Last but not least it is very important for teachers to make their students feel like with instructional and emotional support from their teacher that they will not fail. In the first article “The Journal of Educational Psychology” states that teacher-student interactions are very important and can change a students path in achievement. They suggest that when teacher-student interactions take place in a positive matter whether one on one, small groups, or the whole class, that these teacher-student interactions deliver the students with the correct support needed for their learning potential. Also, these positive interactions then can help set the student up for other positive paths in the classroom. Examples of these interactions are categorized into three realms of support: emotional, organizational, and instructional.
The teacher’s role should be to generate lessons and create activities that encourage students to be more open to their creative side. This is vital as it exposes children with varying learning styles to different ways of learning. By educating children, we need to prepare them for the life in a fast changing society where they can be responsive, fulfilled and innovative. The ability to use methods of teaching and learning within the curriculum is important when trying to make it possible. Countless amounts of schools have already been familiarising themselves with the importance of creativity and ways of how to teach, how to make the learning more holistic, more engaging and more creative.
This is in order to deliver high levels of teaching and learning. Teachers must also evaluate and reflect on the success of lessons in order to plan effectively and tailor the lessons to meet individuals’ needs. Furthermore, personalised learning is about knowing the needs of children, in order for them to become independent learners. Personalised learning also requires children to work together and learn from each other as this will help teachers to recognise the barriers to learning. Once the barriers to learning have been identified teachers can plan intervention techniques into lessons.
An elementary teacher establishes a student’s educational foundation through leadership and commitment, and in order to do so effectively, time and patience is a necessity. First, a teacher must engage in the students’ learning by inviting them to share their thoughts, opinions, and ideas, while actively listening and providing feedback. Furthermore, peer interaction should be encouraged to supplement the course material. Finally, teachers should explain concepts thoroughly and cater to each child’s learning style, while encouraging the students to envision new ideas and think “outside the box.” After completing the subject matter, performance should be evaluated to determine concept mastery and evaluate teaching methods. Psychology then becomes relevant because a teacher has to have a sense of behavioral management and should know how to appropriately handle emotional issues.
Overall, the classicist approach mirrors my belief of what an effective classroom embodies. My second and third approaches, respectively, are the executive and humanist approaches. In terms of the executive approach, I believe that is important for the early childhood educator to manage and direct the classroom to ensure goals are met and lessons are taught. This approach is more structured, and I do believe that children need structure to feel comfortable in their daily routine. Likewise, I see the importance of the empathetic, facilitating teacher and that the learning process should be centered on the student, actively learning and acquiring skills that allow them to
