When looking at my teaching philosophy and how I want students to learn in my classroom it becomes very apparent that to achieve success I need to utilise effective behaviour management strategies and create a classroom community. If there is a climate of trust and respect within the classroom, students are more likely to uphold the class expectations and complete what they have been asked to do (Blance, 2003). To create a classroom where students trust and respect each other I will look at how Glasser’s Choice Theory (1998) and total behaviour can be used to minimise behavioural disturbances and promote self management. I will also look at how behaviour and learning are connected and how building relationships cam help promote internal control. I believe it is important that at the start of the new school year the teacher sets up a collegial classroom to maximise learning outcomes.
Cohen et al. (2010) wrote that assessment can be a major contributor to raising standards in schools in terms of teaching, learning and student achievement. In addition, if assessment is properly handled with consistency, reliability, validity and rigour, it can have a possitive effect on learning and can improve students' own understanding of how can they learn more effectively and improve. Although there are various types of assessment approaches, the three key ones that are used in Spanish language subject are the following: Assessment for learning or formative assessment, summative assessment and ipsative assessment or self-assessment. Assessment for learning The purpose of formative assessment is to find where students are in their learning.
