Guidance Counseling and Parental Involvement The elementary school counseling and guidance program is part of the total school program and complements learning in the classroom. It is child-centered, preventive, and developmental. The program encourages students’ social, emotional, and personal growth at each stage of their development. The purpose of counseling with students, parents, and teachers is to help students maximize their potential. The elementary school counselor also conducts guidance lessons; consults with parents, teachers, and other professionals; and coordinates student services in the school (Gartner, Larson, & Allen, 1995).
Effective communication creates a learning environment where students can learn according to their individual needs in a safe and accommodating environment. Think about your early childhood education (or your child’s early education), was it flexible to suit individual learning experiences or were children required to conform to the teacher’s methods of teaching? If you answered the latter, do you think the former would improve the quality of education? Pedagogues’ in all divisions of education should possess proficiency in different levels of communication, whether they are teaching primary or secondary students or university alumni, to be able to address a combination of the various age groups (colleagues, students, parents or superiors). Educators will face difficulties in providing a satisfactory level of education without the necessary skills to communicate effectively to these groups of people.

As educators, we first see characteristics of social behaviors in preschool. Most parents send their children to preschool to enhance socialization with children their own age. They do so in the hopes of giving a good foundation for social competence (Jalongo, 2006). Language development begins in preschool and is a tool used to create positive social behavior. According to Vygotsky, language is critical for cognitive growth.
This refers to a complex combination of hearing, observing, seeing, paying close attention, taking notice, and at the same time understanding what action is required in the situation and making sure that is genuine and empathetic. To develop class cohesion and to build a positive classroom culture requires an authentic ‘learning partnership’. This is enabled by cooperation of the curriculum and focus on planning and programming. A lot depends on the teacher’s abilities in creating the sorts of classroom connections that allow learning conversations between teacher and students and amongst the students themselves. These conversations allow for significant dialogue, which in term helps children make sense of their learning.
Formative assessment is effective in virtually all educational settings: content areas, knowledge and skill types, and levels of education. To work effectively, the learning environment the classroom must be supportive. (textbook)The teacher may facilitate such a learning context by first enabling students to take responsibility for their learning and to become engaged in the classroom, Students must feel comfortable and trust one another in order to provide honest and constructive feedback.
Positive Behavioral Supports and Interventions (PBIS) programs were developed to help children learn the valuable social and behavioral skills needed to be successful in school. Most of these interventions address teaching school-wide expectations and a shared vocabulary for reinforcing these expectations. Some students continue to have behavior problems and to create disruptions in the classroom. These students receive specialized interventions to improve behavior. The researcher's plan is to provide an intervention for students in the secondary level of PBIS.
ntroduction During this semester in the course human development and learning, the class has been learning about a range of ways that children develop and learn. This also develops the understanding of the human growth process in terms of different learning styles and what teaching strategies can be used. Learning about a child’s learning in primary school is vital in being able to successfully develop a range of strategies to benefit both student and teachers learning. Communication strategies to support learning, strategies to support inclusive student participation and engagement in learning, and organisation of the classroom and providing directions to learners managing challenging behaviour are all significantly important to uphold in
