I can honestly say that the teacher in the classroom did a great job with her students and I will be walking away with a bunch of awesome strategies and resources to take back to my own classroom to help with teaching reading and language arts. During this journey and through all of my observations, the teacher and myself had the same goal in mind and that was to make sure that we were educating the students to the
This does not mean that parents have no rights to what happens to their child while they are at school but this allows school to guide student behaviors though discipline. This idea is called in loco parentis (pg. 378). This concept was once more important in schools than it is now but it has brought forth it idea that no matter the student, disabled or not, there needs to be a certain level of responsibility put on all students for their behaviors when they are at school. This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing.
The teacher may have genuinely been concerned with presenting too much information to students but through my classes at Sage, excessive stimuli is good of students with ADD because it gives them many things to focus on instead of causing behavioral problems. I want to have a classroom that has a lot of visuals and educational posters on the wall. Everything in my classroom will have a purpose and will be directly related to what I am teaching or be ongoing projects. I really liked Esme’s ideas and
I felt this way because both the generals’ men were fighting against the Confederates so they should work together. Once again general Robert Shaw put them together. The movie Glory made me think about the views of both the sides and made me realize that the Civil War was a really important event. from war and made fun of the colored men. I felt this way because both the generals’ men were fighting against the Confederates so they should work together.
Unit 2 3.5 Explain when and how to refer other adults to further sources of information, advice or support. If any other adults in our school, such as parents or staff, asked me for advice or support regarding a child, my first point of contact would be our SENCO (special education needs co-ordinator) leader. At my school the SENCO leader has a lot of experience so would know exactly where to send them for the specific help they needed. She is responsible for the day to day running of the schools SEN policy. A SENCO is also the person who laisses with the parents, teachers and any other professionals involved with the child.
I would want to have done the same things once I have my own classroom and I feel fairly passionate for students to understand and develop tolerance towards people who may be different than themselves. I feel that as teachers, we can take action to really mold our students to grow and be better individuals living in this world. I really do believe that issues in the matter of race/ethnicity and culture has to do with educating oneself of these things and practicing the basic matters a person should carry with themselves. I really think that these issues need to be discussed in depth when students are young and continuously because it is harder for one’s mind to see the wrong in something they believed was right for most of their
Geddes’ essay was effective overall and managed to get the point across. There is a transition throughout the essay, from the start of her childhood to growing up into adulthood. The reader is able to understand the respect that she has for her family and community in the beginning and then the harsh reality of the intolerance for diversity as she goes to school. In the end she does realize that she is good enough to go to post secondary despite what people may have said earlier. Believing in yourself and remembering where you come from builds character and you should not let anyone tell you otherwise.
It was hard to change the way she spoke, especially because she was raised speaking different language. More like anything, she wanted to speak like everyone else. Madera shows how crucial were teachers in her life. During high school years she met great English teacher who asked if she would like to write for the school paper. This gave her hope, possibly, one day she might also be able to talk correctly.
Watkins mentioned how she and her professional staff developed a plan and take provisions to handle the challenges they encounter. When I asked her to further touch on this topic, Ms. Rodgers handed me an outline of her classroom rules and reward program. She said that her staff is a major factor in enforcing these rules. She has two in class support specialists which I will ask her about further later in the interview. Ms. Rodgers mentions that the class rules and reward program play a major part in trying to prevent behaviors.
This seems to work but there are times I feel under pressure to offer support and guidance to them within both roles, this can mean disruption within the classroom so I have to encourage them to contact their own assessors with any queries they may have. My role as a teacher begins with the induction process, which includes all the necessary paperwork for the college, as well as the portfolio paperwork required. The process of supporting the learners with getting to know each other, feeling confident etc, as for many of them they are returning to learning after a long spell away from academic work, is vitally important in order for them to continue with the course as well as making their learning experience a positive one. In terms of the teaching training cycle, I endeavour to take this on board within my role, by beginning with assessing learner’s needs to ensure the
