Communication is a two-way process. It involves listening and speaking. Being empathic builds relationships with pupils, parents and teacher, makes them feel that you have seen their point of view. This will make the pupil, parent or teacher feel supported and understood and opens a matter of trust. When effective communication is missing, this can cause teachers to misunderstand or be ignorant of the child’s needs; further more pupils may not feel listened too.
Unit 1 Communication and professional relationships with Children, Young People and Adults. LEARNING OUTCOME 1 1.1 Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. Effective communication is important not only to pupils, but parent/carers and other adults we may have to deal with. Effective communication can only lead to beneficial support from parent/carers, therefore making communication between each other strong and effective. It is important for pupils that we model effective communication skills, checking and being clear on what we may say and how it may be interpreted, in order for pupils to understand school expectations.
The only negative I see in the self-contained setting is the fact that the kids are sometimes cut off from the general education students. Socializing and interacting with other students is very important during a student’s educational experience. This is the time where kids learn to be tolerant of other people’s differences and learn to work with others. The inclusive classroom to me should only be prescribed on a case by case basis. I feel it is a good idea in theory but in some cases it is just not a reasonable solution to me.
Summary of Chapters 1 & 2 Chapter 1 introduces the questions of what makes a good teacher and what should good education be. It basically explains the criteria they used define their variables, to select subjects, and to determine the validity and reliability of their sources. For the sake of the study described in this book, an outstanding professor was defined as one who is remarkably successful in helping their students learn in a substantial and sustained manner. In addition, they should be able to significantly influence the ways they think, act, and feel. The study also considered those who were able to motivate their students to learn and understand the material rather than just absorbing the information presented to them.
1.2 It is very important for all educational workers to have a positive relationship with the children or young people in order to gain their trust so that they are confident to speak to the workers around but also so that they feel comfortable in your presence which will then make them able to learn more. Children and young people can become shy and feel non worthy around individuals that do not notice their presence, if they feel this way then the child or young person will not
There would be far fewer discipline problems and behaviors requiring corrections and discipline if the student’s basic needs are being met within the classroom. Particularly with more challenging students, it is helpful to find what the student is getting from the misbehaving, that is, which goals or functions are being met when misbehaving and help the student meet their for appropriate rather than inappropriate behaviors. These are the students that need attention and interventions. To get in touch with and educate these students effectively educators need to be trained in appropriate instructional and structured strategies in order to implement modifications and accommodations for these students. Classroom teachers are not expected to know which are the best strategies and techniques to try or what are recommended practices for addressing the needs of our diverse learners without
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
Effective communication with parents ensures that they are confident in the school and their child’s learning, which in turn is passed on to the child. 1.2 Relationship building does not come by chance and effective communication is needed to develop positive relationships. You must show respect by listening to what other people have to say regarding their views and beliefs. Some individuals might have different values to your own and it is important to respect these values and consider them when communicating with these people. For example, with people from different cultures or with different religious beliefs.
For ELL’s to learn properly and utilize their affective filter to the fullest, the environment in which they learn needs to feel safe. For example, an ELL usually comes into a classroom not knowing anyone. As a future teacher I believe it is important for an ELL to learn right away that you are going to be their friend. The classroom must convey a level of comfortableness. Teachers must set this in place.
So, it’s the duty of the teacher try to figure out what’s causing students that they are not taking interest in their classes. If I were a teacher I would have followed the following steps as a teacher to make the content not boring and make students more active in the classroom. As a teacher I need to aware of learning, motivation, behavior, and development theories in order to relate to my students and push them to reach their full potential. It is my duty to see that all my students are being motivated this is only fair to the students. They deserve my time and full attention in regards to their
