Effective teaching should acknowledge the impact of factors such as attitudes, perception, expectations, abilities, gender, socio-cultural background and maturity on every learning experience. (“Principal of effective learning and teaching”, n.d.). The purpose of instigating variety of teaching strategies is to avoid monotonous diet of same teaching style which will cause even the keenest student to lost interest. For instance, using technology to achieve maximum success is very vital, educators need to be aware of the different types of learners and how they can address their needs through the use of technology. (Ktoridue, Zarpetea, Yinguo, 2002) Teachers share a significant responsibility in preparing young people to lead successful and productive lives.
Effective strategies and intervention are required to successfully change inappropriate behavior and foster appropriate behavior. Reinforcements are used to alter or eliminate undesirable behavior on the other hand, it is very important to encourage students to practice the desirable behavior to ensure that they are aware of what is expected from them. Teachers often spend valuable time correcting the inappropriate behavior and less time teaching acceptable behavior. As a teacher I think it is necessary and very important to assess and evaluate students
This essay will discuss my perception of the role of a teacher in the lifelong learning sector. It will cover a teacher’s roles, responsibilities and boundaries. It will also evaluate different methods of assessment and discuss approaches to embedding inclusive learning and teaching into learning activities. I have broken the essay down into several headings: Roles, responsibilities and boundaries Teaching and learning methods Assessment methods Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Functional skills in the lifelong learning sector. Background For background information, I am studying teaching in order that I can have an understanding of how my students are learning, and some experience of teaching, so that when I come to assess them for their NVQs I appreciate how they got to the point of submitting their workbooks to me.
Most teachers/trainers will be responsible for designing their own courses. There are some courses, however, which are prescriptive and have to be delivered in a set way; for these teachers, there may be limited opportunities at this stage of the cycle. It is the responsibility of the teacher to write the syllabus for the course while ensuring that the learning outcomes, aims and objectives for the course are covered in an appropriate way e.g. length of time allocated to each outcome, order in which outcomes are planned; possible delivery strategies; appropriate resources and assessment methods. This stage is about planning the course; these plans, however, are not ‘set in stone’ and changes can be made throughout the teaching cycle.
Running head: Benchmark Assessment EDU 536-Week 8 Classroom Engagement and Management This essay will give instruction of how a classroom should be managed. Classroom management may be influenced by a large variety of things. The classroom is where a teacher should be able to teach kids in a structured setting with few distractions. However, this is not always the case. There are many negative situations which often happen in a structured setting, such as the classroom, that causes teachers to have to do more than just teach.
Plan For Unit. This workbook will give you an outline of the content to be covered and the related text pages. It is not intended to be used alone but in conjunction with your text and teacher. It is expected that you will follow the workbook and read the related text, experiments and investigations before the lesson. It will be assumed that you have read the text and have some introductory knowledge of the work to be covered each lesson; failure to do so may affect your progress in class.
No matter how well designed the material, or instrument of delivery is, teachers must consider many relevant factors during implementation, and presentation of material; material and delivery must accommodate a persons learning style. Moreover, teachers must educate their students on learning styles and preferences, this will provide the student knowledge, which will enhance their learning and educational experience. Research continues to document, and show that students will enjoy learning, and will learn more when the material and teachers accommodate their learning styles and preferences. Much research has been conducted and published on how people receive and process information. Research has endeavored to ascertain and define how people learn in different environments, such as the classroom, and the work setting.
At the classroom level, for example, teachers collect information about a student's learning, make corresponding adjustments in their instruction, and continue to collect information. Formative assessment can result in significant learning gains but only when the assessment results are used to inform the instructional and learning process (Black & William, 1998). This condition requires the collection, analysis of, and response to information about student progress. The most common procedures of formative assessment include the following. Feedback.
1.1 Teaching Role and responsibilities in education and Training The teacher should be qualified to teach the learners, and be able to identify key aspects of related current legislation and know how to challenge discriminatory behaviour and attitudes. They should be well prepared for their lesson, be able to provide the correct resources and information relevant to the course and be knowledgeable about the subject or in the case of covering for another teacher, know where to find information in order to answer questions from learners. Teachers should make an initial assessment the needs of learners prior to starting the course in order to assess their suitability to the course there are delivering. Lessons should be prepared and sessions well planned. Establishing good ground rules at the start of the lessons are an important part of the teacher’s role to ensure everyone has clear expectations within the classroom environment, this helps to ensure appropriate behaviour and respect for others within the class.
Introduction. Covering all the aspects and selecting the appropriate activities to develop language skills when teaching, could be a very challenging task for ELT practitioners as a result of many external factors such as: academic program, text books, materials or even facilities, reason why: “Thinking things through before you teach helps to reduce feelings of uncertainty or panic and inspires you instead with a sense of confidence and clarity.” (Woodward, 2001). I agree with this as the only way we can help and create meaningful learning is to foresee the activities that best-fit our teaching context and based on our pupil’s needs and interests. For this assignment, I will outline the plan and activities that I will follow during my three next lessons in order to give my students the extra practice they need to develop their language skills by using the target language presented in this lesson. I will also get into detail for one of these activities to describe the way I will organize the task along with the possible difficulties that my pupils might have during execution.
