Early Childhood Education Programs Amanda Daugherty ECE 312 Rhonda Taylor August 13, 2012 Early Childhood Education Programs Teaching in a classroom is more then just standing in front of a class telling kids what to do it is about coming up with a plan and putting into action to help the students. When coming up with a plan you need to look at a vision statement, mission statement, and a philosophy statement. In order for every one to know you are reasoning for teaching and what you stand for. In this we are going to learn what each of these are and how they work in a teaching plan. Vision statement: is what you see for the future of your company.
We use a quickscan, and VAK test which helps to determine the learner style, (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic). From the results we can evaluate the correct level and course for the learner to be on and also if additional support is needed throughout the course. Support must be in place before during and after initial assessment. For me I have a LSA in the workshop with me to assist with the learners who may require it. Within the teaching role of my subject it is important I provide a safe learning environment for all students, ensuring that they all engage and participate actively in practical and theory lessons alike.
PTTLS 7303: level3 award in preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector. Q.7 State the different assessment methods available and explain the ones you world use for your subject area, including reference to initial assessment records you would complete and explain why. The assessment methods available for teaching are as follows: initial assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment. Summative assessment is assessing whether the student can apply knowledge taught within the lessons, this generally is the completion of a module or course, you will know with this assessment whether the student has passed, this assessment is usually formal. Summative assessments are also necessary to give feedback to the student if the feedback offered is adequate this can be also classed as formative assessment.
After reading, evaluating the usefulness of each of the strategies on pages 248-261, choose the most helpful strategies to design your personal system for taking tests. Again, make sure you design this system for a specific class or classes. Be sure to write what the outcome of your actions would most likely be. Write only the strategies/actions you will actually do. A.
Teachers must protect themselves and the easiest way to do this is to follow the code of practice. The codes of conduct for teachers were reintroduced in June 2012: the code is there to guide teachers in their professional opinion and practice. There are four standards, respect, integrity, care and trust. Teachers need to register and be accountable for their skills and training and teaching under the code, by meeting 33 standards which cover the complexity and variety of teaching. Some of the standards covered are communication, equality and inclusion, pupil student development, school policies and curriculum.
THEORY ASSIGNMENT 3 – Explain how you would promote inclusion, equality and diversity with your current/future learners. Identify other points of referral available to meet the potential needs of learners. As a teacher, I must be aware of the students needs in order to promote equal opportunities and diversity and encourage an inclusive learning environment. The first step is to identify any barriers or boundaries that may affect an individual student’s participation in learning. It could be for example learning difficulties, travel issues or financial pressures.
Investigating Meaningful Teaching Interview The author had the privelege to interview two different teachers of which were educating different grade levels, ages, and classroon enviroments. This essay will summarize the interviews and reflect upon why the author wants to join the ranks of special educators, what the author learned during the interviews that solidifies his/her desire to be a special educator and the authors personal mission statement. The questions that were asked during these interviews ranged from opinions as to what is necessary for a meaningful and worthwhile teaching and learning experience, how is a meaningful learning experience for students related to the teachers' philosophies of education, why did the interviewee want to become a teacher, why does the interviewee continue to teach, what are two or three of their most rewarding teaching experiences, what are two or three of their most challenging, what changes would they like to make in teaching and why, and lastly, how can special and regular education teachers receive support to deal with the challenges described. Out of the six questions asked, both interviewees were simlimar in responses with two of the qestions. When asking, “What is necessary for a meaningful and worthwhile teaching and learning experience,” Mrs. Hagel’s response referenced the engagement in learning, objectives, and instruction, whereas, Mr. Walker expressed collaboration with the school (teacher, CST, administrators) and the parents are critical to the success of a child as well as a positive learning enviroment.
In conclusion, a multicultural classroom requires various teaching methods for students’ success. In order to successfully teach a class like such, teaching materials must be modified to involve and recognize each student’s culture. When a teacher shows interest in student’s heritage and culture, they are able to gain their students trust. This encourages and motivates students to learn in a diverse
For me personally, this was one of the reasons for choosing Walden University, as well as selecting my field of studies. I strongly believe that if we learn and embrace diversity our society can be richer and more powerful. This is something that I practice myself and encourage my children to
(Lazarin and Ortiz, 2012). CPS has also noted that testing students will become a major part of the teacher evaluation system. (isbe,net) These tests must be administered to the ELL student to fit their needs and match the standards set for their testing environments and individualized learning plans. The auxiliary staff aide the classroom teacher in developing a well balanced and most times an individualized program for the ELL students, CPS has to increase these 'human resources' to help the ELL student. Next I began think about the fate of the underperforming schools.
