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.
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. During the delivery of an activity, practitioners should be setting clear expectation and instructions. They may recognise that children are struggling or not understanding what they are asking them to do ; if this is the case practitioners should modify their delivery or the activity itself , in order for every child to take part. During the activity practitioners should be monitoring and observing in order to provide the teacher with feedback. A learning support practitioner will also contribute towards the
Actively encourage and support learners in becoming independent. Will lead learning “guided” groups, modelling concepts and language that the adult leading the learning has used. Will alter an activity or change the apparatus if an activity does not meet the learners needs to enable them to achieve or exceed the expected outcome. Are acutely aware of learners capabilities/prior learning/understanding and plan very effectively to build on these. The areas that I have assessed as “good” and therefore need improving are: Enable learners to access resources appropriately – I feel that I need to make more time to be able to show the children how they can get the best from the resources that they have available to them.

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.
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.
Involving young people in planning and reflecting on their own learning through assessment, evaluation and personal learning planning is essential and this is the responsibility of all practitioners regardless of the learning setting. Universal support will help young people to identify and plan opportunities for achievement through activities covering a full range of contexts and settings, whilst meeting individual needs and providing effective learning activities that address barriers across the curriculum in every context and setting. Additional Support Some young people will benefit from additional or targeted support, tailored to their individual circumstances. This could be at any point of their learning journey or, for some, throughout the journey. 1.2 explain the role of practitioners in providing impartial information and advice to children and young people 1 Young people are informed about how information, advice and guidance services can help them and how to access the services they need.
E1 One of the practitioner’s roles in meeting children’s learning needs could be to understand and work with other practitioners and staff. This can help to provide different learning opportunities to individual children because each child is unique as practitioners should take into consideration all diverse learning needs, for example there are many activities that could be changed to suit individual children. The practitioners’ role would therefore be to plan and resource an environment that is challenging and helps children learn in many different areas of their learning. The role of the practitioner in supporting the learning needs of children is they have to complete regular assessments on their development and learning to identify their progress and plan their next steps to help the children achieve further. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), (2012) states that the role of the practitioner is crucial in observing and reflecting on children’s spontaneous play, building on this by planning and providing a challenging environment which supports specific areas of children’s learning and extends and develops children’s language and communication in their play.
To successfully fur fill the requirements I as the adult will have to provide and make resources accessible so that I can interact with the children and observe and reflect on each of the child’s learning experiences. By doing this I will be able to see what the children enjoy doing and how I can keep the child’s attention and concentration. To use the child centred approach you will have to look at every child as an individual with different strengths learning styles and interests as well as adapting to children who have learning difficulties or disabilities, to achieve this I will have to research their
This could be related to learning or a disability. A SENCO will assess children and if necessary develop an Individual Education Plan (IEP), that will give everyone targets to work to for the best outcome for the child. These targets are regularly reviewed and updated, to see that progress is achieved. The SENCO will support both children and parents, involving both to ensure that the child is supported in the best possible way. Teachers The teacher is responsible for teaching the children with guidelines
This is known as the cognitive development theory, as children actively construct knowledge as they manipulate and explore their world. Piaget found that elementary classroom educators must plan and develop curriculum that enhances their students’ stage of growth. For example, McClenden (2011) stated that students in the Preoperational Stage should have curriculum centered on concrete physical situations because they are not yet able to conceptualize abstractly. Likewise, teachers need to expose students to a great deal of hands-on-practice and a wide range of experiences in order to build a foundation for learning and language. Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory of education also transmits to an elementary classroom and teaching strategies.
