For my assignment I have decided to choose a group which I have just finished taking for level 1 Hairdressing and they have progressed on to level 2 Hairdressing. This is within my current role as a hairdressing lecturer at Hugh Baird College which I have done since October. Within this group there are a couple of people who have support workers. There is one student within the group who has severe learning difficulties and is a more mature student. She also has many health problems which results in her having to carry an oxygen tank around for when she has any problems with her breathing due to her having problems with her heart. There is also another student in the class who has learning difficulties, she is very clever but just needs someone there for when she needs something explaining. She also has a support worker that comes in to give her support. This student has also been going through personal problems at home and has attendance issues. There is another student within this group who has severe dyslexia. She doesn’t have a support worker but the support people who are in there do give her help as she can have a tendency to give up, not to listen and just needs to be kept on track so by sitting next to a person that does have a support worker she gets the help from them. These three students have all had their level 1 qualification extended for a year were the rest of the group have progressed on to level 2 Hairdressing. Two of these students may progress on to level 2 but one doesn’t have the ability to be able to do this as the requirements are too high for her. The reason the course was extended for them was because they were struggling with the work that was required for this qualification, but as the col...

...nd understand the needs earlier. Sometimes I don’t make enough time to do this. I feel that if I took the time, researched the group and found out that if people did have learning needs within the group I could be more prepared. I do adapt things in the group but I feel that this could be improved throughout training and understanding the needs of these students and what works best for them. As mentioned above the training could help me to understand this more as I have never had to teach students in this way.
Overall as an organisation we are the best in inclusive learning and we just need to keep up to date with all the new information or support that is available and carry on what we are doing already. We have good support and resources in place and just need to keep these up to date with policies and laws and have the experience people there doing that for us.

- Teaching Physics I Reflection: Reflection on Language of Science. I have very little real teaching experience (8 weeks of contract teaching, lower secondary science). Yet even in this short period of time, I realised that one of the major hindrance to communicating scientific concepts is in the language itself. Through my observations in classrooms and insights from QCP520, I opined that two of the challenges that I find particularly important are the representation of abstract concepts and the usage of English as the language of science....

- The TV monitor can be an opening to adventures that students may never have the chance to explore. When I use cable television and video clips in my classroom my students get excited about what we are going to study. If a student is a visual-spatial learner the television or videos could be an excellent tool to use in order to meet their learning style. Alexander Golon explains “Visual-spatial learners are students who show advanced abilities with computers, maps, construction toys, and puzzles” (Golon).... [tags: Education Essay]

- I selected to do a small group math lesson. At this time of the year eighth graders are reviewing for Standardized Testing. One of the things they need practice on is their algebra skills, such as solving linear equations. The focus of this lesson was on solving linear equations with one variable. There are various standards that deal with solving equations, but for these students I narrowed it down to single-variable equations: Solve linear equations. The Alabama standard used from this lesson was 8.... [tags: property, terms, coefficients, equations]

- In this course I experienced an important change in my beliefs about teaching; I came to understand that there are many different theories and methods that can be tailored to suit the teacher and the needs of the student. The readings, especially those from Lyons, G., Ford, M., & Arthur-Kelly, M. (2011), Groundwater-Smith, S., Ewing, R., & Le Cornu, R. (2007), and Whitton, D., Barker, K., Nosworthy, M., Sinclair, C., Nanlohy, P. (2010), have helped me to understand this in particular. In composing my essay about teaching methods and other themes, my learning was solidified, my knowledge deepened by my research and my writing skills honed.... [tags: Education ]

- Teaching Critical Reflection The ability to reflect critically on one’s experience, integrate knowledge gained from experience with knowledge possessed, and take action on insights is considered by some adult educators to be a distinguishing feature of the adult learner (Brookfield 1998; Ecclestone 1996; Mezirow 1991). Critical reflection is the process by which adults identify the assumptions governing their actions, locate the historical and cultural origins of the assumptions, question the meaning of the assumptions, and develop alternative ways of acting (Cranton 1996)....

- Teaching is a lifelong learning process. It involves the learning of new strategies, philosophies, and methods. I can learn from colleagues, parents, classes, and from the students themselves. I want my students to take responsibility for their learning. I want to give them the tools to help become successful in their life. I think it is my responsibility to provide an educational environment that is encouraging and positive. As I reexamine my philosophy my belief that each child is a unique individual is strengthened.... [tags: Reflection, Teaching Techniques]

- Guided Teaching Inquiry “I think I notice things more. I notice how much children don’t listen to instructions. (…) it’s made me far more aware of their learning … but … you can’t tell if it’s affected your teaching really. I don’t think it has but it certainly affected the way I see their learning”. (Baumfield & Oberski, 1998, p. 49 cited Baumfield, 2006, p. 1)). In light of Baumfield’s statement it is clear that the way I teach affects the way students learn. For example, the learning intention was not clearly explained, or the process was not effective and the success criteria were not met.... [tags: teaching practice reflection]

- ... Students need to be educated, not only because they may be called upon to make important decisions that affect their societies, but because through their education they may be able to keep their government from becoming corrupt. Thomas Jefferson stated in his Notes of the State of Virginia that: “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositories.” Therefore, with an education, people are more likely to call upon their government if they see it turning against the will of the people....
