One of the key responsibilities I feel for a teacher is to provide information, wisdom. In order to share their knowledge and understanding of a subject or topic a teacher needs to have a deep understanding of the topic that they are teaching. However alongside this a teacher should not claim to know it all, and be willing to learn from their students. ‘Knowledge may be seen as a level of awareness, consciousness or familiarity gained by experience, learning or thinking.’ (Jarvis 1987). It is important that the teacher appreciate any input from their students, whether the answer is correct or not.
In this respect, the ultimate aim is to enable learners to understand how to take responsibility for their own development. Teachers can do this by planning and preparing teaching and learning activities that take account of the needs and well-being of individual learners as well as groups of learners. Some key aspects of a role as a teacher may be: carrying out initial and/or diagnostic assessments; clear communication with your learners, other professionals and stakeholders; promoting appropriate behaviour and respect for others; identifying and meeting individual learners’ needs; being aware of the support mechanisms available; being organised; being reflective, which means learning from successes as well as mistakes. What are my responsibilities as a teacher? As a teacher, my primary responsibility is to ensure that learners are enrolled onto the correct course, in terms of meeting their needs, abilities and aspirations.
Unit 001 1 Explain the roles and responsibilities of a teacher in relation to: a) Promoting equality and diversity in teaching b) Lifelong learning c) Identifying and meeting the needs of the learners d) Maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment e) Ways to promote appropriate behaviour and respect for others 1a) It is a teacher’s role and responsibility to promote equality and diversity. “Equality is about the rights of learners to attend and participate regardless of their gender, race, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, sexual orientation or age”. (Gravells 5th edition 2012) Equality is making sure that every student is treated in the same way and their needs are met in a way that supports their chosen learning experience. All students are entitled to be educated according their needs, regardless of any differences they may have. As a teacher it is your role to provide any resources needed including specialist equipment for activities and to use the correct teaching styles that will enable the learner access to their learning experience.
Evaluate own role and responsibilities in lifelong learning , follow the Teacher Training Method of Teaching ,Identify the needs by plan training, and deliver training. Followed by Assessment’s and feedback on Overall Evaluations. 4. Review own role and responsibilities in identifying and meeting the needs of learners. Initial assessment is to acknowledge the strength or weakness of each student and thoroughly learning about what is the best approach of learning about the students and the better approach or method of teaching the students, so they are able to understand. Target settings will also apply as a motivation for the students so they are able to understand the actual target’s that are required to be followed.
7302 City and Guilds 1) As a teacher my role in the classroom would be to provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment. I would need to do this by following health and safety guidelines at all times and ensuring that I had done sufficient planning for my lessons taking into account my learners own abilities and possible problems that may occur. I would treat all members fairly, with respect and dignity. This may mean spending more time with individual learners and planning activities with sufficient resources to appeal to all abilities and learning styles. I would need to consider possible support that would be required in the classroom.
The teacher assistant and teacher should plan together so that you are clear from the outset what you will be doing and are given the opportunity to put forward your own ideas. In the case of teaching assistants who support individual pupils, this can be particularly beneficial since they will be able to identify any difficulties with planned activities at the earliest stages and will also know in advance if they will need to find particular resources b) Delivery: How a learning support practitioner would contribute on the delivery of a learning objective,
An educator should constantly be revising lesson plans and expanding their own knowledge in order to deliver an optimal learning experience for the students. Incorporating guidelines to educate students without bias into a code of ethics ensures that students receive equal treatment in the classroom. An educator’s primary concern should be the physical and mental well being of the student. This being said, it is the responsibility of the educator to be vigilant of a student’s physical and emotional behavior while in the classroom. Child abuse is a dilemma that may be encountered when working as a professional educator in the school system.
To address a behavior issue I believe that first you must understand the behavior and more importantly understand what its causes are. Jacob Kounin talks about in preventing discipline problems, which have to do with the subject matter of the classroom. Kounin emphasizes that teachers should make instructional activities enjoyable and challenging for the students. I believe if the students are
Level 3 PTTLS ASSESSMENT 1 1.1Explain what your actual or perceived roles, responsibilities and boundaries are as a teacher in terms of the teaching cycle. I perceive that my roles as a teacher are to deliver effective training and supporting the learner either directly or indirectly and to maintain an inclusive, equitable and motivating learning environment. I understand that as a teacher I will be identifying the need s of learners, planning and designing resources facilitating teaching and learning resources, assessing learners, evaluating learners performance and my own CPD. I am responsible for the health and safety, moral and physical welfare of my students/learners. I am also responsible for catering for students with learning disabilities.
A critical evaluation of an aspect of the inclusive practices, evidenced in the case study (which will be provided), with specific reference to your own practice during school placement and your wider reading? Our understanding of diversity is broad – it encompasses gender, race, age, disability, cultural background and so much more. Inclusive practice is understood to be attitudes, approaches and strategies taken to ensure that students are not excluded or isolated from the learning environment because of any of these characteristics. As a teacher, my role is to ensure that all students feel welcome, accepted, safe, listened to, valued and feel confident that they can participate in all activities. Every child should be given every opportunity
