Inclusion of all students is important. If they feel intimidated in class they can come to me afterwards and ask a question in private. If they leave my class happy, I feel they have learnt something. It is very important for the students to know they have the support of the teacher and feel confident in the knowledge that any information given to the teacher is treated in
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
A critical evaluation of an aspect of the inclusive practices, evidenced in the case study (which will be provided), with specific reference to your own practice during school placement and your wider reading? Our understanding of diversity is broad – it encompasses gender, race, age, disability, cultural background and so much more. Inclusive practice is understood to be attitudes, approaches and strategies taken to ensure that students are not excluded or isolated from the learning environment because of any of these characteristics. As a teacher, my role is to ensure that all students feel welcome, accepted, safe, listened to, valued and feel confident that they can participate in all activities. Every child should be given every opportunity
In a classroom setting you have direct social interaction engaging with the instructor and other students. However you could be limited in learning by how the instructor teaches the material. If there is a subject that the instructor is not fond of they could gloss over it or make it sound not so important by the tone use to teach the material. In an online course an outline of the curriculum is provided but the learning technique is up to the student on how that material is learned. The instructor guides the student to learn for themselves but provides information along the way.
I will create this environment through an engaging curriculum, personable interaction, topic orientated discussions, and group work. Since my license will include an endorsement in Special Education my classroom management will include a focus on flexibility defined as the ability to respond to the moods, emotions and the capabilities of my students on any given day. Meeting the needs of my students, based on their individual need, will be a crucial part of my classroom management structure. I will accomplishment this by promoting self-management and self-efficacy in my students to the best of their abilities. Creating a predictable, consistent, and success-oriented environment will promote self-management in my students by creating, basic, daily routines with limited changes (Savage & Savage, 2010).
3. Having an inclusive class (with a wide spectrum of abilities) - Another problem which can happen when supporting learning activities, is making sure that the all children are engaged, involved and fully understand the task that has been set, when there is such a wide spectrum of abilities within the group you’re working with. This can be dealt with in several ways, such as splitting the class into ability based groups, encouraging high ability children to help those who are struggling to make them feel more included (this also helps to keep the class working on a similar
2. The strength of these philosophies lies in the fact they are all student centered approaches to teaching and learning. I most appreciate the prescriptive nature of the philosophies meaning that they all are attempting to increase learning and decrease behavior issues by establishing roles, routines, and norms of a classroom. I think if I can actively utilize the approaches above, I can create the type of environment that is helpful to both students and still be a place I want to work in. I do not expect that I can do it all the first year, but maybe over time I can bring in more research based applications of classroom management.
The key strategic purpose of the teachers is to prepare lessons to impart information and make them as interesting as possible to keep children engaged and to promote learning by leading discussion and encourage participation. They must ensure the classroom environment is supportive for all learners. Teachers should prepare homework and assignments to assess learner’s progress and feed that back to both students and families. Support staff roles refers to any school employee allocated to assist administrators, teachers etc. to address special needs within the school.
The staff specialising in the physical resource management are the care takers and cleaners who ensure that physical equipment is maintained to a standard for effective use throughout the school; care takers will fix and mend things that are broken with in the building and replace those resources which are beyond repair. This system of management of the physical resources allow the performance of the school to run effectively as the equipment to work and teach are maintained to a good standard and allow the school to function smoothly – teachers will be able to teach the lessons in a good environment with functioning equipment allow the pupils to learn effectively and gain the best possible results they can. Another Physical Resource is the chairs. These will help improve the overall performance of the school because this will allow students to work to the best of their abilities as it will bring some comfort to allowing them to concentrate and for them when they are learning in the classroom environment. Physical Resources such as classrooms are important in improving the overall performance because the tables allow the students to learn about the subject that they are taking within certain years of the school.
When attending lectures they are usually presented to a group at the same time and it allows for immediate questions and changes. Professors can distribute to students or recommend options for help for study aids. When doing group projects students can get together more easily to complete tasks. Students have hands on practice of processes and procedures with class work. The professors can select from a variety of assignments.
