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.
The responsibility to deliver the proper and unbiased learning curriculum lies in the hands of the educator. Although, generally the curriculum is approved and handed down by the state; the educator must possess the capacity to lecture the students in a proper manner. Students must not be treated or educated differently on the basis of religion, gender, or nationality. Every effort must be made by the educator in order to provide an environment which is conducive to the learning process. An educator should constantly be revising lesson plans and expanding their own knowledge in order to deliver an optimal learning experience for the students.
As a tutor working in the adult education sector it is beneficial for me to have knowledge of legislations applicable to teaching, such as The Data Protection Act (1998), which governs the protection of personal data of my learners. 2. Promoting equality and valuing diversity by understanding of creating a differentiation of all students, each individual are / students are different and have to be treated equally. 3. Evaluate own role and responsibilities in lifelong learning , follow the Teacher Training Method of Teaching ,Identify the needs by plan training, and deliver training.
Constructive feedback can be given through different ways. When a trainer is giving constructive feedback to a group, he should focus on the group performance and what they have achieved but also has to make sure he identifies what each individual has achieved. When giving direct feedback to an individual, he has to ensure he is specific about the targets they have met and what they still need to achieve (Gravells, 2013). Constructive feedback can be given formally, by writing or informally, verbally. This way of giving feedback should always be adapted to each learner.
In this write-up, I will seek to explain the ways in which I could establish ground rules with learners, which strengthens behaviour and respect for others. In doing this, I will be explaining what ground rules are and why they are necessary. How best they can be established and also ensure that students take ownership of rules by putting responsibility on them. Ground rules can be defined as terms which govern the working relationship between the school/teacher and its learners. According to Jo Budden “good classroom management depends a lot on how you establish ground rules at the beginning of the course”.
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.
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
CU3812: Understanding own role and responsibilities in lifelong learning 1. Summarise key aspects of legislation, regulatory requirements and codes of practice relating to own role and responsibilities My role is to understand my responsibilities within legislation, regulatory and codes of practise. The key regulatory bodies are the health & safety at work act 1974, equal opportunities and discrimination. My role as a tutor is to promote and adhere to these rules and to ensure that the people I deal with also understand these codes of practice. Other responsibilities are the Data Protection 1998, Safeguard Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, Every Child Matters and The Copyright Act.
CHARACTER EDUCATION AND ME 2 I agree that character education should be taught in schools. The question is what should be taught, and how should it be taught? Lickona (1991) stated that “good character consist of knowing the good, desiring the good, and doing good” (p.150). In order for schools to successfully teach character education students need to be exposed to, understand, internalize, and act upon universally agreed upon moral values (Lickona, 1991). I agree with Lickona (2009) when he said that “family lays the Foundation”.
If I have to sell a ‘product’, then it is one in which I must have my heart. Similarly, detailed and passionate knowledge of my subject is a given; as is the prerequisite of thorough research prior to and during the unit. Learning should be modelled, regardless of age or academic attainment. If I want commitment from my students, then I must do the same. Students need to see that there is equity in the classroom, including clear, consistent guidelines concerning procedures, expectations and discipline.
