The driving force behind our school is student learning. We are committed to provide quality education that supports all learners. Therefore, we must establish practices that support all learners. “In order to meet the need of all pupils, the school ought to share the same vision. We know that success for culturally- and linguistically- diverse students cannot rest with a single teacher.
I believe that all schools need to get back to the basics. Reading, writing, and arithmetic make up the essentials of education. We use these essentials everyday whether we notice or not. Essentialists not only teach the basics, but also teach other things like morals, respect for authority, perseverance, and consideration for others in their everyday curriculum. In this philosophy, the teacher serves as the intellectual and moral role model for all of his/her students.
This concept takes into account that all students are unique and have various strengths, weaknesses, and interests. However, rather than the teacher adapting curriculum to specific individual’s needs during planning the t... ... middle of paper ... ...n successful design of the inclusive class. As a new teacher setting up the learning environment using the described strategies will have its difficulties. However in order to alleviate any fears I possess it is important that I become familiar with existing practices of successful differentiated instruction, engage in professional development and discussions, build relationships within the class and beyond the school. In addition to this, one of the most important practices for me as a teacher is that of reflection.
My philosophy is that I should strive to provide authentic learning experiences through student engagement and collaboration. As an educator it is my responsibility to facilitate learning opportunities whether they come from direct instruction, student collaboration in the classroom, or involvement in community activities. In my opinion, all facets of the community should be accountable in public education. It truly does “take a village to raise a child” (Clinton1996) especially in the 21st century. I believe we are all teachers and we are all students.
Working with special education students, the learning styles in my classroom are extremely diverse. It is essential to take all the different learning styles in my classroom and utilize them in my lessons, in order for my students to be successful. Throughout a school day, I think it is important to have students use all their different intelligences, to make learning meaningful to every student. Piaget’s theory of constructivism states that humans create knowledge from their interactions between their experiences and ideas, and I relate strongly to this. Along with constructivism, the theory of discovery learning, from Piaget, Bruner, and Papert, is a theory I utilize in my teaching.
If a diversity statement were to occur between a student and myself, I will immediately seek the principle or councilor. If a student with special needs is addressed in a statement from another student, I will allow the principle to make disciplinary actions. Bullying will not be allowed in my classroom. I plan to follow and abide by my classroom management plan, my syllabus, and all school policies. I strongly believe that in order to have successful students; a successful, dedicated, and compassionate staff is required to help each and every student achieve their academic goals.
Lesson planning is a map to student learning, the resources teachers use influence student learning. For this reason, it is important to understand how to evaluate instructional material. There are many things to consider when choosing material resources this paper will examine the importance of the design, procedures, clarity, and efficiency when choosing lesson plans. When choosing learning resources teachers need to ensure that all students feel valued, and supported regardless of their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It is also important that materials chosen will help all students succeed in school regardless of their abilities, backgrounds, cultures, or linguistic differences.
In establishing a successful school it is pertain that all the staff have the knowledge about the different styles while leading, the main three are congenial, collegial, and conventional (Glickman, et al., 2010). Every school is classify by the leadership style and the decisions that are made, the instruction, the interactions with the stakeholders, or how the administration is done. Furthermore, will be analyze the supervision styles, the culture and the platform that will be follow. Supervision Style In the role of a principal are many factors that influence the style in the administration of a school. These factors can be the vision and goal, communication, teamwork, collaboration among all stakeholders (Glickman, et al., 2010).
As a teacher, there are a lot of responsibilities and commitments that a teacher must follow. Teachers can perform best when they use team planning, student/parent conferences, and classroom management. We also need the students to taken an active role in their own education with the help of parents and guardians. When I become a teacher I want my students to exceed the local and state goals on standardized test. My duty is to prepare students for the world that lies ahead.
In my opinion, it is an important resource for any teacher, new or experienced, who wants to help every student in the classroom learn and succeed. It has also changed my views about the teaching and educating paradigms. Earlier, I had an idea that one single and comprehensive technique could be applied on all the students. But having adopted ideas and concepts presented in this book, I came to know that modifications in teaching and instructing techniques is a must to do when it comes to really enhancing the level of learning.
