| * Teachers, students, and parents work together to achieve success. * Class rules are a collaborative process between students and teacher. * The win-win discipline considers the emotional/physical state of students when they misbehave. This helps teachers understand why a student misbehaves without accepting the misbehavior. | * Real discipline has teachers tell students what they are to do then have them repeat until they do it right.
To address a behavior issue I believe that first you must understand the behavior and more importantly understand what its causes are. Jacob Kounin talks about in preventing discipline problems, which have to do with the subject matter of the classroom. Kounin emphasizes that teachers should make instructional activities enjoyable and challenging for the students. I believe if the students are
Students must feel safe and secure in their class in order to learn and grow in education. In order to control these types of behaviors the teacher must first recognize the misbehavior and handle it in a professional manner from the onset. Students learn from example as much as from example. Teacher set the example. They can do this by putting a stop to the disruption and using it as a learning experience for all the other students.
TDA 2.6 TASK (3.1) (3.4) Describe why teamwork is important in schools 3.1 Describe why team work is important in schools. Outstanding, efficient and effective, teamwork allows the school as a whole to run effectively and achieve excellent results not only for you but also for others. It helps to build a positive relationship with those that are within your team. When there is team work, responsibilities and tasks are shared and are completed more effectively and also in a good time scale. In a school there are many other people to consider as your team rather than just the people you work with closely on a daily basis.
The teacher provided physical and mental safety from insult and diminishment. Mike Rose emphasized that a good environment actually would help students do better, “And there was safety to take risks, to push beyond what you can comfortably do at the present, ‘coaxing out thinking along,’ as one of Steve Gilbert’s student put it, bringing out our best interpretive abilities” (46). These democratic classrooms also showed the amazing respect of people toward another, especially toward students of different ethnicities. They respected each other’s background, their languages, and history. They helped one another study and made them feel comfortable.
It can leave the participant feeling bad with seemingly no way forward. Verbalising and exploring a learners thoughts can assist them gain a positive perspective of their own work and ability and will also help identify problem areas, therefore providing both the teacher and the learner with the ability to develop e.g. asking a learner where they think they did well and where they think they could improve. Some situations in which constructive feedback is required can include; ongoing performance discussions, providing specific performance pointers, following up on teaching discussions, providing correct guidance, providing a learner with consequences of their behaviour. Clues at when constructive feedback is needed can be when a learner asks for your opinion on how they are doing, this can be a 'cry for help' from a learner.
Likewise it is just as important to accept that getting things wrong is okay and to understand how we can learn from our mistakes. Circle time is a great tool to learn how to take turns and listen to others, philosophy sessions is an excellent opportunity for children to express themselves without the fear of being wrong, to realise that everyone has their own opinion and that we do not all have to think the same and agree with each other. Children in life need to be able to make informed choices for themselves. Children are taught through the curriculum and assemblies
As pupils may lose interest in lessons, it may cause problem for forthcoming activities you may break down activities that need doing and explain things rather than children losing interest from learning. Another example to control behaviour in your classroom is to set up an rewards system for children as this will encourage them to earn rewards and be recognised for their good deeds. Another skill that supports work with children is commitment and enabling yourself to work well in a team. To work with children, you must have a passion and be prepared to commit yourself to children and their work in order to help them learn and succeed. As working with children will not be easy in aspects of planning, teaching etc.
I feel it is important to take into account the personalities of the children, as learning may be inhibited if one child is particularly domineering or intimidating. It is also necessary to look at the subject being taught and be flexible in the grouping of children. I personally feel that for subjects such as Literacy and Numeracy, where there is pressure for academic success the children should be split into ability groups. I feel by working in ability groups, the children are still able to support each other and there is still a hint of Vygotsky’s ZPD theory being practised, as there is still a range of abilities within an ability group and the more able of one particular ability group, can support the others in the group. It is important to remember that no one child is the same as another, even if they are classified as being of similar ability.
In truth, there are three types of teachers: Informative, nonchalant and friendly. There are specific teachers for each students and it is the student's job to figure out which type of teacher is compatible with their way of learning. First off, an informative teacher is the type of teacher that gives students the most information and can be more intuitive as far as teaching. These types of teachers are, basically, for students who desire someone who is straight-forward and bestows facts as well as valuable details needed in order to pass the class. For example, if a student is in this specific teacher's class, he or she will be bombarded with material the teacher presents.
