Teaching middle school students will not be easy and I understand that management and instruction of a classroom is one of the most important aspects to have a good learning environment. I will have to adjust my style of teaching to my students that pass through my class year to year. Knowing and understanding your students is how I am going to try to shape and structure my classroom because if the students are not responding it is something that I need to change about my style of
Planning of an idea timetable with perfect venue for all is also very challenging. Teachers are also complaining about unable to finish the curriculum and some of the assessments and feedback process can be time consuming. Despite the constraints faced, generally, we welcome the Holistic Development Programs as we witness the positive change in our pupils. Pupils are not just trained to take exams but learned soft skills that will help them to be an important asset for the society in their adulthood. We really look forward to the change of the education system.
I will have items on a bulletin board to show how well the children are behaving. I will give ... ... middle of paper ... ...elp me out in a lot of ways. I am planning to continue my education by going onto graduate school. I am hoping that furthering my education will have a positive effect on my teaching style. My mentor teacher will help me further my education in ways of them teaching me the ways of teaching in that school system.
It is important for my students to understand and value learning goals in the classroom. At the start of every chapter students will be supplied an outline of what they are going to encounter in the upcoming weeks. The outline will be broken down where the students can see their daily objectives, state standards, activity, and assessment. By providing an outline to the students “This not only provides students with an opportunity to examine and discuss the learning goals but also helps students to understand the learning process” (Jones & Jones, 2007, p. 250). Students need to be actively involved in the learning process both academically and personally.
Teachers’ principles shape their behaviour, interactions with students, and curricular decisions. I aim to become a teacher who can create an effective teaching by developing habits of mind. In order to do so, I would have to continuously reflect, observe, assess, and evaluate. Assessments for learning, as learning, and of learning are crucial when developing a deep learning. At the beginning of a year, I would see the baseline of where each student is at and observe his or her progress.
As a special education teacher, I must have a full understanding of my students (Danielson, 1996). I design lessons that are the instructional match for my students, modify grade level curriculum, and accommodate for different learning styles. I also try to choose books that would be interesting to my students and create math story problems around the activities that students participate in. Assessing student learning is critical to monitor instruction and to report student progress accurately (Danielson, 1996). The development of this component was a goal of mine during the first semester of this school year.
Formative assessment to inform instruction and guide student learning is being underutilized. Many students are not given feedback that is effective in helping them see where they are in regard to reaching the learning goals or that provides plan for moving them forward to achieve that goal. Students are not always given the opportunity to take an active role in the learning process by regularly assessing themselves and their peers as they work to achieve their learning goals. The purpose of this study is to determine how the use of formative assessment with immediate feedback using student response systems will impact student learning. This study will also investigate the effect that student involvement in self-evaluation has on learning.
Based on the inquiry of empowering professional development, many findings come into play. At times we feel as though professional development is worthless and a waste of time. Gusky also, addresses that at times why so many professional developments are inadequate. There are reasons why we feel that way and reasons of which we should not have if we were actually getting something out the workshops. A common goal must first be set in the mind of the participants thus leading to the building of professionalism of the school system.
As a student teacher one fear I had was having inadequate skills in managing a classroom. I realize that effective classroom management takes time and are only acquired with practice, feedback, and a willingness to make and learn from your teaching mistakes. I learned from this moment how good classroom management allows for an atmosphere that not only enhances student learning but can limit the
I said that I like to set up a routine within the first few weeks of school, so that the students know what to expect. I like to write the goals on the board for the students to know what we need to accomplish for the class period. I said my main way of managing a classroom was to build a routine and follow it. When talking to my teacher she mentioned to say that I will set up consequences and then always following through with those consequences. I thought her answer was a good.
