The idea of helping a child succeed in life gives me the motivation to want to become a teacher. The first question a teacher must ask him or herself is, how do I help these students learn? There are a couple ways to go about educating students, but in my opinion, students must be challenged. The idea of a student using their problem solving skills and going through critical thinking processes is based on the idea of progressivism. Progressivism has some very important concepts.
Existentialism teachers focus on having the students answer the question in life instead of just a lesson. On the other hand, the role of the teacher in idealism is to be the rule maker, a moral guide. “The teacher’s role is to be a skillful questioner who encourages students to think and ask more questions in an environment that is suitable for learning” (Idealism, Martinez, para. 14). The teacher decides the lesson for the day based on the common core.
A teacher has to understand there a hidden issues that play a part in the students and has to build relationships with those student so he or she could help them anyway possible. The skill of flexibility is key because not every student is as intelligent as the next. Knowing that each student learns at a different pace and in different ways, teachers have to adapt to what will make student learn better and be successful. Even if it requires a little extra time, young students can’t succeed on their own, they need guidance in their lives. And as a future teacher it’s our role to be there and guide students down the right
Fair does not explicitly talk about identifying the strengths and weaknesses but she goes into how professional development for all teachers is critical to ELs and their learning. She states “having that understanding on how to work with those students, having those strategies of teaching and assessment and also just the cultural understanding of working with children from other cultures” (Fair, Video, 00:53). Understanding how to work with those students will help me become a better teacher by teaching different cultures. Once I get to know more about the student and their culture, I can make lesson plans based off what they like. I found what Osborn said to be the most interesting piece of advice.
Is this relationship among teacher and student that important to discuss and analyze? Does a student's education depend on the techniques of the teacher? Alternatively, do students have a responsibility to their own education? The relationship between the teacher and the student is both important and detrimental to a student's education. Educators and aspiring teachers need to know what kind of atmosphere they can create in a classroom.
In order to build and keep that student-centered quality that is so important to students’ success, teachers would appear to have an open posture towards their own teaching. But what shapes teachers’ attitudes and objectives for their own teaching? Teachers’ manners, and their goal orientations towards their own teaching, affect the way teachers maintain course objectives, design class activities, and regulate themselves when interacting with students. Using self-efficacy and goal orientation paradigms, Kucsera, Roberts,
1.1 Background of the Study Interaction between teacher and students are a part of learning language process. Teachers usually use the term ‘motivation’ when they describe successful and unsuccessful learners (Dörnyei, 2001). Teachers are seen as the role model who can motivate students. Therefore, teachers must be able to make students aware and enjoy while learning process in the classroom. In fact, motivation is not a simple process to do by the teacher (Dörnyei, 2001).
Teachers give their students’ knowledge to succeed in everyday life. I believe that teachers should play multiple roles, not just one. Teachers should be the motivator, the facilitator, the challenger, and the supporter in their students’ lives. Without teachers or some form of education, ignorance would reign the world. Each teacher has their own personal views on teaching, how students learn, classroom goals, and professional development.
A teacher must discover their role in every classroom. Are they a lecturer, imparting their knowledge and expertise on a subject onto new minds? Or are they a fellow learner, learning alongside their students and discovering new ideas? Teachers must also find a balance of professional and personal. Some teachers make the mistake of getting too close to students, thus being taken advantage of as the “cool teacher” which is a stigma of its own.
Explain to her what it is, making sure to talk about it big picture, but also with focus on the teacher’s role as well as the child’s role? A constructivist philosophy is when the students experience their knowledge by making or building through learning. For example, the teacher may give a long lecture in the classroom, but some students will learn and some will recall a little of the information. While, if the students are making something, then they pretty much will get what they learn. Another example is, instead of the teacher telling, she must begin asking.
