By communicating with parents, I will be able to help them better understand what their child is doing in class as well as allow them to discuss any concerns that they may have (Liston, 2016b). VII. Conclusion Education cannot be defined as having only one purpose. The purpose of education is to provide academic instruction as well as develop well-rounded students so that they can take with them into the world what they have learned. Oftentimes, educational learning can be established through personal experiences that one is presented with.
“Every phase of instruction must be accompanied by a means of checking for understanding” (Fisher & Frey, 2008, p. 37). I have realized that assessing students’ understanding of the concept on which the lesson is based is a critical step in determining the flow of the lesson. A quick recap in the form of questions and answers works well for me to not only correct misconceptions but also improve learning as it helps the students connect the day’s lesson with previous learning. In my experience, all assessment may not count towards a grade but there should be feedback for learners as well as us facilitators to know where they stand with respect to achieving the lesson objectives. “Students achieve more when they have a clear picture of the expectations”
I will model this attitude by learning from my students in the classroom, showing that they have things to teach me. To make the best use of my classroom time I as a teacher need to know what strategies to apply to promote good classroom management. The following are the methods I would apply to my classroom: . Using rewards and reinforcements . Understanding my student’s level of learning
By doing so, I would be able to know what to erase or leave on it. It might take a while for me to have a tidy board, but I will make sure it looks understandable for my learners. After CELTA Once the course is finished, I will take the time to design a board organization template. This template will be used as guide for all my lessons and will help me to standardize the content of it. Obviously, I will take into account my students’ needs and the amount of information they can process at a time.
The goal is to transform teachers to become effective educators using different teaching models in the classroom. As educators, we need to understand that we never stop learning new ways on how to improve the education of our children; therefore, we need to acknowledge and implement new teaching models so we can make a difference in student learning. The similarity that I observed between the instructional and collegial model is that the coach first teach the lesson and the teacher observes the lesson and take notes. Then, the teacher teaches the lesson, and the coach observes and takes notes (Laureate Education, 2010g). Implementing Using collegial coaching, teacher can also learn from each other and provide positive feedback and reflect to make it better the next time.
I need to focus on the instruction that on the class that I am teaching to help them be successful. Another intelligent action, I would include in my classroom is feedback. I would include structure feedback in my lesson. At the end of instruction, I would ask the students what they have learn today in class. I would do this as a way to assess their learning and see what the students receive from the class lesson.
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.
As teachers apply themselves to becoming learners, then they can more aptly educate others. Teachers should not overlook professional preparation; however, they must also consider part of their efforts in scholarship to be constructing relationships with their students. In developing relationships with learners, Freire suggested spending time talking and listening to students in order to get to know them and to gain their participation in class. That admonition has been incorporated into practice by numerous other educators. While many of the strategies in Tom Daly’s book were simple classroom management tips (2013)... ... middle of paper ... ...imensions of reflection: A conceptual and contextual analysis.
Educators should help students to collaborate with their families and the community to improve their learning skills. In my future teaching practices, I would check if there are any bias in the teaching materials and the language used in a class, reflect the diverse backgrounds of the students, plan instructional activities at the beginning of class to boost students’ morale, self-esteem, and readiness to learn, and prepare a differentiated instruction to meet the individual needs of students according to their needs. I would develop a nurturing, supportive, non-competitive environment where everybody is the leader in the classroom. I would guide grouping of students for instruction and I believe that the best strategy to use is to group students in mixed
Instructional Style and Techniques Developing an instructional style in the classroom is important because it gives the student an idea of how they will be in taking information. As a teacher, my instructional style will be more of a student-centered approach to learning. I will still have the authority figure, but will allow the students to play an active role in the learning process. My role is to coach and facilitate student learning, along with the overall comprehension of the material. The student’s learning will be measure by both informal and formal forms of assessment, which includes tests, group projects, journals, and class participation.
