Effective teachers strive to motivate and engage all their students in learning, believing every student is capable of achieving success at school and they do all they can to find ways of making each student successful. They personalize the learning for their students and uses techniques that have each student working on tasks that engage and challenge them to achieve their personal best. Teachers have a repertoire of effective teaching strategies and use them to implement well designed teaching programs and lessons. (AITSL (a), 2012). Planning influences what student will learn, because planning can transform the available time and curriculum materials into activities, assignments and tasks for students so time is the essence of planning.
In order to improve the area and society in which a school is based, is subject knowledge key to improvement of crime, economic welfare and wellbeing or are morels, values and communication skills a necessity. I think they are definitely a necessity and the remaining question is whether it is the role of the local school to teach these morels, values and communication skills or whether it is the role of the family in which an individual is raised in. It can be shown that schools are aware of this role from the following quote taken from (White, 2006) “The English School Curriculum aims to help every young person to live a fulfilling life and to help others to do so. It does this within a framework of democratic citizenship in which each person is equally valued and each person is free to make her or his own decisions about how she or he is to lead her or his life.” The Pastoral System The pastoral system is a curriculum that “combines all aspects of the school life which together contributes to the formation of the whole person” (ASCL, 2007). Before any statutory requirements were put into place, schools already recognised the importance of a citizenship curriculum.
It not only provides more opportunities and options but also more academic potential. It also adds value when it comes to securing certain top positions. These values are given to you for working hard and achieving the status of a successful human being. Schools teach you good morals on how to do an effort, how to work hard, how to achieve things, how to become an adult, and how to work with others and get results. “The choices you make now, the people you surround yourself with, they all have the potential to affect your life, even who you are, forever” (Xplore).
Good communication with parents and caregivers can build support for and strengthen the important work that you are doing in the classroom. The more you know about children's academic, social, and emotional development, the more able you will be to meet their needs. Information about how well the children are progressing helps you to plan your teaching. You want the children in your care to feel successful and confident, but you also want to offer experiences that will help them to develop further. In addition, through initial screening and by checking the children's progress, you can identify those children who need special help or who face extra
I have learned first-hand of the effect on people’s achievements and behavior from other’s attitudes and expectations. Developing a cultural content rich and diverse curriculum is key in developing student’s abilities to consider alternate perspectives and ways of thinking. Teachers play an extremely important role in a schools multicultural education. To ensure proper preparation for pre service teachers’ effective pre service multicultural education programs should be adopted. Soliciting parental support and involvement is a great way to encourage school and home communication.
Finally, educators with effective communication skills prove an ability to adapt teaching methods to suit the needs of students they are supporting (Kearns, 2012), and with appropriate delivery of good communication, student learning increases. When delivering student education, acquiring effective communication skills involving the delivery of high written and verbal skills, and literacy development is essential for teachers to aid children’s needs for learning, as this assists to prove social and cognitive development for children when the teacher collaborates towards educating children. Good communication skills from early childhood educators ensure children’s skills are enhanced when
According to Gravell, (2012:18), the main role of the Teacher is to help learners achieve their chosen programme. Gravell went further to explain that this can be achieved by using various teaching and learning methods whilst taking into account learners individual needs. As a Team leader in the Princes Trust I will wear many hats: friend, judge, mentor, different roles for extracurricular duties. When I say mentor it means many things from a role model to coach to confidant, someone I believe who encourages positive behaviour this could be with the use of more responsibilities in the class room. Helping them improve the skills this could be through communication for example being able to understand situations and resolve differences which will build trust.
Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Assessment is key to the learning process, whether it be to assess if a learner is capable of entering onto a course to assessing their development on the course. There are different types of assessments that teachers can use to gauge the progress of their learners. Here we will study the varying types and methods of assessment whilst analysing how to involve the learner in the assessment process and the importance of keeping records of assessments. When judging assessment types and methods it is important to establish if the evidence produced is valid and sufficient to meet the criteria, if it is authentic and if the assessment would produce the same results when assessed by numerous assessors. One way of dividing assessments into two different types is through the use of formative and summative classifications.
Running Head: DIRECT ASSISTANCE TO TEACHERS Direct Assistance to Teachers Teresa McNair Grand Canyon University: EDA 5551 May 9, 2012 Direct Assistance to Teachers “Direct assistance to teachers is one of the crucial elements of a successful school” (Glickman, Gordon, & Ross-Gordon, 2010, p. 288). Direct assistance provides one on one support which is necessary to promote the attainment of knowledge, interpersonal and technical skills needed by our teachers to be efficient in the classroom instruction and management. Within our educational organizations today, clinical supervision and peer coaching are currently two of the most popular forms of direct assistance used. Within today’s educational organizations, many changes are taking place which now puts majority of the responsibility on administrators. With this amount of accountability, administrators must ensure the academic success of their students through the effective use of supervisory practices.
What ideas and strategies must teachers develop if they are to have a classroom that is characterized by a high level of on-task behaviour? * Self-efficiency: Confidence in the ability to promote students’ learning and to achieve instructional goals. Teachers are more likely to engage in effective management behaviors when they believe they are capable of using those behaviors usefully. * Professional Knowledge: Instructional techniques, cognitive psychology and child development * Therefore we can define teaching as pre planned behaviour – founded in learning principles and child development theory and directed toward both instructional dilevery and classroom management – that increase the probability of effecting a positive change in student behaviour If students are to display appropriate behaviour in class, what preplanning is necessary for teachers? 1.)
