I not only want them to succeed in subjects but also grow as individuals. I plan to use the progressivism approach in my classroom because I believe that hands on education in a very effective way of learning. It helps students to get a first hand experience to see and feel what it is they are learning. I also think that working with groups in their classroom is very beneficial to students. By interacting with their peers they will learn how to share their ideas, accept others points of view and learn how to develop relationships , which is a very important part of life that will help them to succeed in their careers.
Along with constructivism, the theory of discovery learning, from Piaget, Bruner, and Papert, is a theory I utilize in my teaching. For students with special needs, discovery learning provides an adequate learning environment in the general education setting. I believe that when students discover and create knowledge for themselves, it makes the learning so much more meaningful. To differentiate my teaching, I find the learning style that will ensure my students are most successful and incorporate them into my lessons. I give my students access to the information in more than one way, for example, if we are doing a lesson that is very verbal and interpersonal, I will also provide the information in a video for my students who are more visual learners.
I want to make my classroom a pleasant place for students to learn. In my field, I cannot go into my classroom lecture too much because the students will lose interest. I will give the students some information and directions they need to conduct the assignment and then allow then to start. I will be available for any questions the students might have and walk around to each to mentor their progress. I will try to keep myself informed of new information and changes in education as it pertains to my field of teaching.
Elementary Lesson Modifications I can modify my elementary lesson by incorporating constructivism principles. Throughout the whole lesson I can guide the students to aid their comprehension and understanding instead of constantly correcting them or giving them the correct answers. Scaffolding is another strategy I can incorporate into my lesson. By using it, I can correct errors and help students develop higher level thinking skills. This strategy is very effective in helping teachers guide the students to help them understand the new information and can be applied to whole group, small group and individual students.
I have to prepare a lot of teaching styles and activities during the teaching and learning process to become a good teacher and at the same time it will make my lesson fun and meaningful to the students. Besides that, as a future teacher also, I have to be creative in creating my lesson plan and make my teaching and learning process is fun and enjoyable to the students. For example, I have to create variations of activities in my lesson that can make the students become interested in something that I want to teach. In a nutshell, from the experiences of the strength and the weaknesses I had found while making the kits will make me a better teacher in creating my lesson plan and also in teaching profession one fine day.
As I stated in prior questions, the information I have learned have provided me with a understanding of how a teacher can be effective in their classroom by using the strategies suggested. There are some strategies that are beyond a teacher control, therefore, they will need to create a different technique, but keep in mind the information each theory to be successful. 8. What can I do from now until the end of the course, to make this a [an even] better learning experience? What I can do for the remainder of the course to make this a better learning experience is to continue to be involved and learn from my other classmate and instructor.
I believe that students must first gain knowledge and then apply it. I will help them use their knowledge by giving them activities that coincide with the curriculum I am teaching them. I believe that students learn best by being engaged in real-world activities and should be active in the learning process. I hope that my classroom will be a place where my students and I can learn from each other and teach each other. I hope to learn from my students as they learn from me.
Introduction This lesson plan is designed for students to learn in a creative way. This project will not only allow the students to learn how to work together as a team, but to allow them to gain knowledge to help them move forward in the course. During this project, the students will be able to construct the questions about the properties of each component provided. Later, the students will be able to respond with 80% accuracy. This lesson will allow them to enhance their thinking skills, which will help them identify similarities and differences.
Being a reflective practitioner means that an educator must take time to think about their processes in the classroom and the outcome of their efforts and find ways to not only progress but to improve upon current their methods. This helps to improve the quality of education for all students and allows educators to develop into more effective educators. Self-reflection and sharing ideas and concepts with fellow educators make for a more well-rounded and effective teacher. I personally like to work with other educators sharing ideas and insights. I learn from others as well as share my ideas with my peers.
Sometimes, they simply don’t care. However, that is a teacher's purpose: to help and shape their students to become better learners, so that they have a clearer understanding regarding a variety of subject matters. Someday, I actually want to become an elementary art teacher, which is why I researched this career. I chose to gather more information of what skills it takes to be a teacher and what you need to do to successfully fulfill this career. A typical day for an elementary teacher would go as follows: instruct students individually and in groups using various teaching methods, write lessons plans to meet students’ needs and interests, and constantly monitor student’s learning and behavior.
