This naturally formed structure is not conducive to a cooperative, respectful, safe, learning environment. By careful observation, a teacher can learn valuable information and plot a strategic management plan, which uses the positive qualities of the hierarchy, such as student leadership, and rejects the negative qualities. While the teacher is observing her class, an equally intense reconnaissance of the teacher is being carried out by the students. With a thoughtful strategy, a teacher can change the destiny of her students (and herself), if she has the foresight and fortitude to commit to her plan of action. Self Management The students should be made aware of what their responsibilities are and exactly what is expected of them.
The one on one meetings allows the teacher to get to know about the interests, hope, and concerns of the student, and facilitate a relationship in which students feel they are emotionally and physically safe and, therefore free to engage in constructive discourser with their teacher (Brewster, 2000). A2) Self-Motivation Mr. Collet’s homework policy promotes self-motivation by making the students responsible for having done their work and meet the teacher’s expectations. This part of the policy would promote self-motivation for a 4th grade classroom because it would hold the students accountable for meeting the teacher’s expectation. This make a student want to do exactly as the teacher ask. Most students don’t want to disappoint their teacher and having to appeal to the teacher for not having the homework turned in on time, So they will make sure to keep up with their work and what is expected of them.
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.
Those involved in learning need to feel involved in the process. They need to feel like they are being supported in their learning and want to feel like the organization cares about what they are doing. Feedback also provides them with motivation to proceed. Feedback also allows the organization to learning what is occurring in the learning process from all those around the learner. In doing this, you can be sure that the learner in progressing as quickly as possible and really understanding what it is they are being taught.
A student needs to feel comfortable with themselves, others, and the teacher, so there can be meaningful discussion and interactions. Teacher and student relationships are essential to ensure a positive school/classroom atmosphere. Rules are stated in this manner, because teacher and student develop the rules together. This way student feels some ownership about how the class is run and is more likely to follow rules and procedures. CLASSROOM RULES: 1.
Wayson also spoke about teacher student relations and how to open your classroom for more effective learning. He talked about not embarrassing a student, but in turn seeking alternate ways of getting your message across. This is something that we have touched on throughout the course, but something I feel to be very important. I think its imperative that as teachers we think about what our actions have the power to do. At the elementary level, we are shaping how students feel about themselves which can affect them the rest of their lives.
Separation anxiety can be excessive crying when the parent leaves, throwing tantrums and are unable to calm down, or refusing to complete the work or participate in class. When a child is having separation anxiety, the best strategy, is to have them help you come up with a plan, so that they have a hand in deciding what the best course of action is. Furthermore, they know what to do when they start to feel the anxiety start to happen. You could have a classroom parent board, in which students and parents can communicate with each other. When the child starts to feel the anxiety, they can walk over to the board and read a message from their parents.
In my theory, an effective teacher must also be willing to change and adapt lesson plans based on the needs of the students. This requires good decision-making skills so that a teacher can chose what is best for the student and that will reap the most rewards. Test-taking is also important to this theory because tests must be appropriate for all learners. If we want students to pass, we must create test that are fair to each student and allows for strengths to be shown on the
The policy that is in place to keep the students and teachers safe at schools needs to be fixed, so that people are not being wrong fully expelled, and wrong fully accused of something. Kids make mistakes, and it is ok to be punished for a crime, but to what extent is okay? This policy is a good thing, it is good to try to keep everyone safe. We need to change the extent of punishment these students face when committing a very minor
Flunking students can be used as a positive tool by our education system. The consequence of flunking and holding students back alone can be used to motivate and encourage students to put full effort into class work. Most students fear flunking only because they’re afraid of what friends, peers and society will say or think about them; this is all wrong, the real fear should be failing and not being
