Module 4FD028 - Introduction The aim of this module is to show an understanding of the key concepts and approaches in Early Years provision and practice. By reflecting on how these are applied in practice, evaluating the impact on children’s learning and development and the practitioner’s role. The notion of ‘quality’ and the impact of one key concept on the child’s development and providing quality provision and practice will be discussed. Namely Transition from an Early years setting into a school environment for the first time paying particular attention to the role of the adult and the impact on the child’s well-being. In the developing field of Early Years, it is becoming more and more important for practitioners to have an awareness of the many topics that impact on the provision available to young children.
SPE 226 Educating the Exceptional Learner Benchmark Assessment Targeted Essential Learning Effective teachers implement lesson plans that utilize diversified strategies to meet the learning needs of students with varying degrees of cognitive abilities. Effective teachers are able to adapt instruction based on learner needs. (APTS 3, 9; INTASC 2; CEC 4, 7) Assessment Tool Selected Project a) Accommodations and Modification of Lesson Plan b) Report - Reflective Analysis Specific Performance/Task(s) • Implement lesson plans. (APTS 3.1) • Select and utilize best practice implementation strategies appropriate to different developmental levels. (APTS 3.7) • Implement differentiated strategies that address diverse learners.
• Importance of including parents/guardians in planning. Planning • Current influences on the planning and provision of learning opportunities. • Importance of planning and providing learning opportunities to meet children’s diverse needs. • Plans of curriculum activities • How planned curriculum can promote learning Role of practitioner • The role of the practitioner in meeting children’s learning needs • Reflective account how a practitioner can support the learning needs of the children. After the practitioner know the information and understands it, there next role is too use it to meet the children’s learning needs.
1.1 Describe how a learning support practioner may contribute to the planning delivery and review of learning activities; Within the role of TA we will at some point contribute to the planning, delivery and evaluation of learning activities alongside the teacher .When the planning of a lesson takes place there should be some opportunity to discuss the pupils work with the teacher. Planning, teaching and evaluation follows the cycle which gives structure to the learning process: PLAN Teacher ,put input,suggest ideas,own input and part of the planning ,take notes ,take part Evaluate,feed back to both children and teacher ,techniques written /verbal feedback Prepare,get resources ready,have a lesson plan ,adapt the resources ,clean up and check health and safety Prepare Get resources ,,ready,have a copy pre Observing ,taking notes to see pupils ability .compare notes Implement and support To do activity ,extra support ,managing behaviour ,encouragement. Most Ta,s are involved in the daily /short plans rather than the long /medium term .By knowing the LO TA,s will be clear on what is expected from the pupils and to what they are expected to achieve . If a TA has particular strengths in ascertain area which is being taught they may be asked to put forward their ideas towards the lesson plan. At some point you may be asked to work alongside the teacher with their long term plans and activities for the week .PPA may be set aside for this.
Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities for the following areas : * literacy skills * numeracy skills * ICT skills * problem solving skills A learning support practitioner will contribute to the planning of an activity by firstly gaining a clear understanding of what the learning objective is and what the teacher wants the child to achieve from the activity. The practitioner will then find out the ability of the pupils they are working with and if they require any extra or specialist help , this then helps the practitioner provide the correct materials and equipment they need for the activity. A learning support practitioner would also contribute to planning as they will identify if pupils they are working with are likely to finish early and so can arrange with the teacher and additional sheets these children may need. An important part of planning would be for the practitioner to be aware of how much time they have to do the activity and can plan the activity to suit. A learning support practitioner will also be required to provide the teacher with feedback of the activity and the child's performance , so the practitioners should arrange with the teacher beforehand how they should be providing the feedback.
FMSC 332: Children in Families Section 0301 s: h to adolescence. You will learn about the basic principles of child development and explore how the social world in which children and adolescents interact (e.g., parents, family, school, community, government, media, and cultural) influence learning, growth, and development. You will learn to apply these course concepts to practical and contemporary issues affecting children and families today. Course Learning Objectives: Upon completing this course, the student will be able to: 1. Identify context and theoretical frameworks to understand the developing child.
You should use these to cross-reference your work. Q1.Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the: a) planning, b) delivery, and c) review, of learning activities. Answer a) Planning: A learning support practitioner contributes to planning of the short term plans these are for the week or day and will incorporate learning objectives and state how the class or group will be organised. Contributing in your own way by putting forward suggestions of your own, particularly if you support an individual pupil. The teacher assistant and teacher should plan together so that you are clear from the outset what you will be doing and are given the opportunity to put forward your own ideas.
Before carrying out activities, you will need to have an awareness of the curriculum and stage at which pupils are at. As a member of support staff, as time goes on and the more experience gained, the more will be learnt about particular students and how they work best. It is ideal if support staff access school records about pupils learning to ensure they are up to date, familiar and prepared with supporting individual
UNIT 012 Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Main methods of assessments in life long learning are: academic (knowledge) and vocational (performance). Dependent on the subject, the assessment method may need to be adapted, using and adapting both these type assessments will ensure that the students acquire optimum achievement during my lesson. To decide which of these is most appropriate, the assessment cycle will be used: • Initial assessment - used to identify if my students already know something about the subject to be assessed and the needs of my students (for example more support). • Assessment planning - used to plan the suitable types and method of assessment following relevant organisational guidelines. • Assessment activity - to determine this, the method could be assessorled like completing questioning or student-led like gathering evidence of competence.
This assessment can ascertain as to whether the student has any background knowledge of the subject they are being taught and if they are applying for the correct level of education. Carrying out initial assessment can determine as to whether there are specific areas that a student needs to develop. ‘Diagnostic assessment is an evaluation of a learner’s skills, knowledge, strengths and areas for development. Formative assessments are ongoing throughout the course and a simple way of gauging how and what your students are learning. This then allows the teacher to amend the way in which they are teaching or what they are teaching to accommodate the results.
