Interpretivists favour this method, as they can get more detailed answers from the pupils. It is a flexible method that allows the interviewer to gain insight into why subcultures develop. This would be good when interviewing pupils from pro and anti-school subcultures, as they can speak about their own experiences, and what is important to them. Unstructured interviews can also be carried out in
They are identified in a person but aren’t really the person’s number one choice. The preferred strategies are the strategies that help the person learn and cope to their needs. Identified strategies are there and also help but the person would prefer the other strategies over them. As discussed earlier, kinesthetic strategies embody actively engaging into the lesson. On the contrary, aural study strategies engage “attending classes, discussions, and tutorials, discussing topics with others and teachers, and using a tape recorder.” People who are good listeners and learn better by hearing have aural strategies.
Firstly, overt observation is when the researcher would make all the pupils aware that they are being studied and makes sure they give their permission before the observation takes place. This makes their research ethical, however observer effect can occur which is where the truants may behave differently because they are being observed, giving unreliable results. The other type of participant observation is covert studies. This means the truants wouldn’t know they were being watched, so they are more likely to behave like they normally would, giving valid results, however this raises ethical concerns such as the right to withdraw and deception. A strength of participant observation when investigating truancy from school is results are usually valid compared with getting the students to fill out a questionnaire about truanting when there is no real way of telling if they are giving accurate answers.
If they feel emotionally secure they are more likely to participate in the play and learning activities. Children need to have a strong relationship with the staff to feel comfortable and secure this will help them to enjoy themselves and less likely to show unwanted behaviour. It is important for adults to ensure that they have effective communication with their students; this will help keep the children comfortable and will also gain their trust. Without trust and honesty the children may feel like you are unapproachable and may keep their problems and worries to themselves and this may affect their learning. It is important that children are made aware of what is expected of them within school with regards to their behaviour and interacting with others.
For example, the most effective method would be, to respect the students and their feelings before they can respect you. Dr. Michaels stated that, “You will gain respect by knowing the emotional, physical, and psychological place of your students. “Show that you care.” This all leads back to students wanting to know that their teacher not only cares about their education but them as an individual. As an after school instructor, I have dealt with many cases where a students didn’t feel like they had to show me respect right off the bat. Which is something that I can understand, because children don’t really comprehend the importance of respect or manners, its something that has to be taught to them.
By allowing certain behaviors to occur without consequences the teacher is sending the message that it is okay. This can cause the students to lose focus and a decrease in understanding of the lesson being taught. It can also allow chaos to reign supreme. Disruptions can also make other students feel threatened. Students must feel safe and secure in their class in order to learn and grow in education.
Poor communication Conflict can occur when communication has not been effective. This may be due to a misunderstanding or because information has not been passed on. To overcome this we should discuss the problem, find the cause and a way forward, so both parties are satisfied with the outcome. External factors When we work in school there may be a person who is under pressures of work load or other issues which are affecting how they communicate. If we know the person we can easily identify if there are behaving in an unusual way & we should ask if there is anything wrong or how we can
Students with emotional and behavioral disorders can often control themselves better if given the option to step away. Having a quiet area in the classroom gives them an appropriate choice. Encourage students to journal, which allows them to get in touch with their emotions and possibly understand the causes. Lastly, reward affected students frequently for positive behaviors, instead of correcting, because the student can easily get frustrated or angry with corrections (Schreiner, n.d.). Effective Teaching Strategies for Physical and Health Disabilities Physical and health disabilities cross a huge field of types of
Misbehavior is less likely to recur if a student makes a commitment to avoid the action and to engage in more desirable alternative behaviors.”(Kizlik, 2012). I believe that I have a more to learn about classroom management and policy, especially dealing with punishment and consequences. The use of praise in my classroom management style might be good. In the use and way I praise students matched the use of best practices of more seasoned professionals. I have linked praised with student performance and instruction.
Abstract Forming impressions of people can be biased from order effects. Those motivated to think are less susceptible to primacy effects compared to those low in motivation to think. Presented study revealed a reduced primacy effect amongst those who are motivated to think. Teachers and assessors alike, where marking exams are part of work life, should be aware of any bias impressions that can be formed of their students during exam marking. As Rosenthal & Jacobson’s (1968) famous classroom study revealed, teachers impressions of their students can affect the level of encouragement they give.
