Building a bank of “what if” scenarios is a valuable tool in building a solid teaching philosophy. * Discussing teaching cases allows teachers to reflect and think critically about a certain problem without actually having to go through the experience. Helping teachers prepare for possible situations that may arise in the classroom, is a huge benefit to teachers. Knowing ahead of time how to respond to a certain situation helps build confidence and reduces anxiety in the decision making process. Part 2 The Case of Jesus Gonzalez a) Key Factors This case is about a first grade student named Jesus Gonzalez, his family, and teacher, Mrs. Kiffen.
In Middle class schools students are expected to learn and follow the guidelines the teachers provide. Anyon analyzed that students in middle class schools must “follow the directions in order to get the right answers, but directions often call for some figuring, some choice, and some decision making.”(p128) Students should often figure out what the directions ask and solve the problem themselves. The teachers are there to give students the first step in order for them to succeed. Milpitas high is also an Affluent Professional school. In an Affluent Professional school students are encouraged to work and think independently, they are as Anyon said, “Constantly asked to express and apply ideas and concepts.”(p130) Suggesting that the
Stepping away from the situation until the child has calmed down; there are many things that can be taught early that will be more effective then teaching them at a required by the courts class at the age of 39. These skills contribute to positive social development because they teach children that emotions are okay to feel, and okay to display, but you have to display them in the correct way, otherwise they are not heard. 2. 鼎reate a supportive milieu in the class, school and community so that children reinforce each other for positive behavior. Teach children to care for and support each other during stressful times.�This step speaks for itself.
I want to experiment with what builds a sense of community, support, care, and motivation in my classroom and I assume this will take place in many forms. Torey sought out and found ways to communicate and build relationships with her students, some of the time these ways were non-verbal and rather based on feeling; I hope to create the same sort of atmosphere in my classroom, to have those important one on one moments with my students. This passage in the book also reminded me of a recent conversation I had with my supervising teacher about the hiring process. She told me that some of the best teachers have the worst interviews, but when she’s looking for a potential teacher she relies mostly on intuition; if she believes an individual truly loves children, she is much more likely to hire them regardless of their interview. (Of course the individual would have to demonstrate some basic competencies) The passage also made me think of the beauty of the teaching profession and how it really is difficult to explain to a non-teacher; there are so many small and large events that happen on a daily basis in the academic world that creates a world of amazement and appreciation for the growing
By applying this method, teachers will no longer have to deter from their lesson plans to force students to pay attention. Students will also benefit from the program, as they will no longer miss notes or assignments due to sleeping in class. This method can also provide use for students who do not follow directions, use a cell phone or other unauthorized electronic device, and those select students who fail to abide by the rules of the classroom. A dear friend of mine, of whom I hold in the highest regard, showed a less than enthusiastic reply to my “modest proposal.” He referred to my method as “unreasonable” and “overly exaggerated.” His main concern was that this method would cause more distractions in the classroom. He reasoned that the students would overreact to the shock and cause a disturbance.
The SLT gave me , the key worker the information on how to work with them in school plus the parents and carers information on how to work with them at home. When I finished working with them it was amazing to see just how much they had flourished – not just academically but socially too. Psychologists – When a child or young person isn't making the desired progress after all the interventions have been put in place the school can call in educational psychologists. Its not as scary as it sounds and they can help in many areas. We know by reading the past pages that the children and young people have many reasons why they may not
Once the teacher feels the students have a grasp on the concept the teacher will realease the students to work on some of their problems in the book. This is not a group assignment and students should work on the problems themselves. V. Reflective Assessment and Evaluation Asessment: Students will work on preselected problems out of the book while the teacher and instructional aide walk around and make sure they are on task. At this time students may ask for help if needed. If there is several questions on the same problems it’s a good idea if the teacher gets the attention of the class and works that problem on the board with the students following
If parents take much time at work for example the time spent by Chris in Iraq, their children may end up being poor performers in school which will impact negatively on their lives in the future. So they need to be able to attend to their work and to children too because they need support both in education and in the social perspective of growth. Parents are important because they take a large part in their children growth in the sense that they teach them most of the things about life. In socialisation process of life in which individuals are taught about, customs, culture, and beliefs, parents are the main contributors of ensuring their children are aware of those matters. It is because they are the close parties to them, and it is also their mandate to ensure culture is
Justin Beatty College Skills (1) A "self-regulated learner" are people who plan carefully before starting a task, select strategies that are most appropriate for the task, monitor their learning as they progress with the current task, and afterwards evaluate the results of their efforts. Self-regulated learners know what they need to do to successfully complete each task. (2) An "independent learner" takes the initiative for their own learning. During high school, your parents or your teachers often took responsibility for your learning. They often reminded you to complete assignments, study for exams, and if you did not succeed, they felt like it was their fault.
When it comes to Cognitive Behavioral interventions the behavioral concept is to incorporate systematic procedures for rewarding students for the reduction of aggressive behavior that they display to their peers, administration staff and educators and use their problem solving strategies instead of lashing out. The educator will use social reinforcements to praise and recognize which can include extra time on the computer, listening to their favorite song or even extra time in recess to show that their positive attitude and behavior is appreciated. We know that this won’t be easy or will not be picked up by the student quickly having positive feedback, rules and regulations set in place, proper modeling and even multiple practice opportunities. We cannot place the child in a situation that we know they are going to fail in just to prove a point and we have to keep in mind that every child is not the same and every reaction will not be the same as well (Etscheidt, S.,
