In this write-up, I will seek to explain the ways in which I could establish ground rules with learners, which strengthens behaviour and respect for others. In doing this, I will be explaining what ground rules are and why they are necessary. How best they can be established and also ensure that students take ownership of rules by putting responsibility on them. Ground rules can be defined as terms which govern the working relationship between the school/teacher and its learners. According to Jo Budden “good classroom management depends a lot on how you establish ground rules at the beginning of the course”.
Inclusive learning should promote positive behaviour and conduct. A teacher needs to recognise that learner comes with different learning styles and needs. Maslow stated unless certain need are met the learner cannot progress. Malsow ‘s hierarchy of needs theory is: Learners needs have to to be met in order for leaners to be involved and focused on their learning. For individual learning styles to be met, within a good learning sessions a teacher will ensure he/she takes a multi-sensory approach to teaching, this way each learner can work to the best of their ability.
Introduction In this assignment I am going to cover the role of the teacher, the responsibilities that they have in the education and training environment. I will also discuss how to maintain a safe and supportive learning environment for your learners. To end the essay I will discuss the relationship teachers have with other professionals who work in the education and training arena. The teaching role and responsibilities in education and training 1.1 Explain the teaching role and responsibilities in education A teacher adopts many roles within the learning environment and has many responsibilities. One of the key responsibilities I feel for a teacher is to provide information, wisdom.
Explain the functions of assessment in learning and development Initial assessment in identifying learner needs The Initial assessment (IA) process could be classed as the most important information gathering process. It not only allows the teacher to decipher if the student is enrolling on the correct course for them but also to collect details about the learners past educational experiences, upbringing conditions i.e. a care environment and any particular learning issues. The initial assessment can be both formal and informal. Formal IA may be application forms, references and other relevant documentation.
For 3.3, you need to write a minimum of 2 paragraphs explaining your own role and responsibility and those of 3 others in a team: 1) SENCO (Special educational needs co-ordinator) The SEN Coordinator (SENCO), in collaboration with the head teacher and governing body, plays a key role in determining the strategic development of the SEN policy and provision in the school in order to raise the achievement of children with SEN The SENCO will co-ordinate additional support for pupils with SEN and liaise with their parents, teachers and other professionals who are involved with them. The SENCO has responsibility for requesting the involvement of an Educational Psychologist and other external services particularly for children receiving support at School Action and School Action Plus. This also includes general SEN assessments, administration and parental support. The SENCO should have the support of the head teacher and other teachers to try and develop effective ways of overcoming barriers to a child's learning and ensuring that they receive effective teaching through assessing the child’s needs and setting targets for improvement. SENCOs must also collaborate with curriculum co-ordinators at the school to make sure that the learning requirements of all children with SEN are given equal emphasis and priority.
The responsibility to deliver the proper and unbiased learning curriculum lies in the hands of the educator. Although, generally the curriculum is approved and handed down by the state; the educator must possess the capacity to lecture the students in a proper manner. Students must not be treated or educated differently on the basis of religion, gender, or nationality. Every effort must be made by the educator in order to provide an environment which is conducive to the learning process. An educator should constantly be revising lesson plans and expanding their own knowledge in order to deliver an optimal learning experience for the students.
I would need to consider possible support that would be required in the classroom. I may do this by discussing any recurring issues with the learner such as tell tale Dyslexia traits and referring them on to the appropriate people. I would need to build a good, yet professional, rapport with my learners with built in trust. It is essential to have prior knowledge of your learners and take the time to work on their ILPs (individual learning plans). After the initial assessments, I would need to discuss with the group what they expected from me and what they expected from the course that I was delivering.
As working with children will not be easy in aspects of planning, teaching etc. it is important that you commit some valuable time to plan your lessons and spend your time wisely with children to help them learn. An example of this is preparing work for children of different abilities as they have different learning methods and some may take more time or require extra support due to learning difficulties etc. It is relevant for an early years practitioner to work well in a team as it is important to acknowledge everybody's contribution which is their right. You should adopt a ‘we’re in this together’ approach.You should also be aware of how to behave within your team and be supportive and co - operative.

To address a behavior issue I believe that first you must understand the behavior and more importantly understand what its causes are. Jacob Kounin talks about in preventing discipline problems, which have to do with the subject matter of the classroom. Kounin emphasizes that teachers should make instructional activities enjoyable and challenging for the students. I believe if the students are
