Teachers assist children with their problems in a positive way and teach them appropriate behaviors so they will understand what is acceptable and unacceptable. I believe that guidance is the part of early childhood education that helps a child develop and mold as a socially competent child. Guidance Strategies In my classroom I plan to have positive guidance strategies to help children develop self-control, assist them in making the right decisions, and encourage them to take responsibilities for their actions. An indirect form of guidance that I plan to apply in my classroom is establishing a positive classroom environment. A positive classroom environment will provide my students with a found... ... middle of paper ... ...ble to handle the stress and struggles that can come with the job.
Effective teachers shouldn’t wait for assessment results to determine what their students know or don’t know, an effective teacher should gather their own information through quality of instruction. Quality of instruction is the extent to which the instruction to be given is appropriate to the learner (Bloom, 1976, pp, 10-11) cited in (Squires, 2009). Effective questioning and use of assessment by teachers is ways that students outcomes can be achieved, teachers ask questions to encourage critical thinking skills, effectively assess the nature of their learning and building confidence within the students. Effective questioning builds students thinking by encouraging students to reflect on their idea and concepts and compare them with other pupils. Questions from teachers can help them understand what the students know and need to improve upon, this can help the teacher to set out and plan tasks for students to learn and develop in a certain subject.
Teachers are encouraged to develop these strategies and where possibly implement them into their teaching to help enhance student memory. This can be achieved by teaching specific memory recall strategies and when to use them, examples such as visual representations or asking the students to demonstrate what strategies they find useful, are all good ideas for teachers to take into consideration when trying to improve student memory. Strategies help students when it comes to studying what they have learned in the easiest most effective way possible; however theses strategies may become unhelpful at one point in time if a child is emotionally
An effective teacher will know and understand the Common Core Standards. A teacher should be able to bring their own life experiences into the classroom by understanding a remembering what might have kept us from learning. Applying rewards to students as we go through the learning process. Little bonuses are a plus when working, whether you are a student or working in the real world experiences. An effective teacher needs to know the goal and how to motivate their student to the end goal.
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
Fixed mindset students believe that intelligence is fixed and that one cannot improve their intelligence Growth mindset is the opposite. Those with growth mindset believe that “intelligence can be expanded and developed through education and hardwork.” (Dweck, 2010) One side of learners avoids challenges while the other side embraces them. By using UBD, DI and Standards-based in the classroom, teachers create challenges that students are able to work through and achieve success When a student works hard and achieves success, they will want to continue the success and keeping working hard and completing the challenges. Students begin to believe in
In order to perform to their best ability on their schoolwork, it is my opinion that it’s the teacher’s responsibility to provide the students with tools for success. “Many existentialist educators provide some curriculum structure,” (Kaplan 185). In my classroom, I will teach the students the importance of organizing thoughts and study habits that have helped myself or other students in the past. No matter their home life, chaotic or straight-laced, teaching them how to engage in their schoolwork in diverse environments. “The world is chaotic, producing anxiety and hurt.
This is where classroom management is important for a teacher as ‘the education process, which aims to form positive behaviour on the students, starts at this point’ (Behcet, 2012, p. 2901), the beginning to shape students and gain their respect before it is too late. There is no right or wrong, but finding and creating a system that works for the teacher and the class diversity will promote a positive learning environment for all students. This then relates to my professional practice as going into a new classroom that I am not familiar with and finding a system that works for me to help promote a positive learning environment. The purpose of this study is to determine teachers’ and students’ perspectives in relation to positive classroom management strategies. The following research questions will be addressed from both a teachers and students point of view: 1.
Standard #1: Learner Development. This standard requires a teacher to really understand his/her students especially through the ways they grow and develop. It is important for them to understand that every student is different and therefore, will learn in their own ways. The teacher then learns to meet the needs of all students specifically by creating learning experiences for all to comprehend. Differentiated instruction would be helpful in a classroom in order for the teacher to meet the needs of students who have differences when it comes to interests, readiness and learning needs.
The teacher in this philosophy must use all of their skills and introduce subjects to the children in ways that are intriguing to the students. The reason being is because in a Pragmatist model the curriculum is child-centered; it revolves around the child's interest. Therefore, the teacher's role is to bring that child into a certain subject by arousing their interest. The methodology a prag... ... middle of paper ... ...udents will feel.
