Problem Prevention Plan: Six Grade Classroom Yvonne McCullum Liberty University My main goals for my six graders the first weeks of class will be to organize my classroom in a group/team setting environment. I will introduce myself and other students, review the class expectations for behavior, class procedures, syllabus, and a "get acquainted" game. Once this is done I will get to academics. I want my students to feel comfortable and love their new environment, a classroom that is fun and safe where learning can take place. My students will develop a community that respects each other in the classroom as well as out of the classroom.
Unit 44 Task 3 prouduced by Adaugo Nwanemuogh P3 & P4 In this assignment I will be writing my reflective entries related to my own contributions to work in my placement. I will also present a portfolio of evidence in placement. I did my placement in an early year’s nursery, where I was assigned to work with the babies and sometimes the two year olds. It is such a heart- warming experience working with the babies because it gave me the opportunity to learn the ways they develop, giving it a good and careful observation. I made sure I record every new development which I have observed, using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) it helps me set standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth.
The basic way of treating someone with respect is to ensure that their interest and welfare is at the forefront of all dealings and interactions with them. I have had a chance of working with children and young people with their families as a trainee teacher. I ensured that I understood what children wanted by asking their opinions and also giving them choices whenever possible. In communicating with the children and their families, I ensured I used their preferred names and gave them opportunities to raise issues of concern and ask questions. I gave the families a chance to give input on the child’s development plans and how well they felt the child’s welfare could be improved.
In Educating All Students: Creating Culturally Responsive Teachers, Classrooms, and Schools, Monica R. Brown establishes definitions for “students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CLD)”, “culturally responsive teachers (CRT)”, “culturally responsive classrooms (CRC)”, and “culturally responsive schools (CRS)”. Within these working definitions, Brown provides a framework in which she believes all teachers should strive to teach. The importance for being culturally responsive (CR) she asserts, stems from the supported research which says that “if educators were to make the effort to ensure that classroom instruction was conducted in a manner that was responsive to the students’ home culture”, then students would comprehend and retain information at higher rates with greater “improvement over time” (Brown, p.58, 2007). A “culturally responsive [educator] believes that culture deeply influences the way children learn”. When students feel that their home and community cultures are being recognized, they connect more with the content in the classroom, feel supported due to the conducive environment, and subsequently come ready to learn.
This will take into consideration the following ; what must be done by the candidate teacher to ensure professionalism in the ways I present myself and interact with others, what kinds of behavior I wish to see in my students now and in the future, what emotional and moral qualities will be promoted in the classroom to help develop students, what provisions will be made to encourage and enable students to conduct themselves in a responsible manner, and the tactics that will be used to intervene effectively when misbehavior occurs in the classroom (Charles, 2008). How I will present and conduct myself As a teacher, it is my responsibility to always give my students 100% of myself, as I expect the same in return from them. Just as students will be held to certain expectations, as their teacher they will also hold certain expectations of me. In an effort to always present and conduct myself in a professional manner, I will do the following: * Maintain an appearance that is professional at all times * Enthusiastically greet students at the door when they
Inclusion and the Common Core Introduction to Inclusion To fully participate in an inclusive education program in your school means to allow all students to attend general education classes that are accepting and supportive learning environments for all students regardless of any disabilities or exceptionalities.

These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The professionals teaching and supporting your child will make sure that the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs.
