The team must be aware of the current state of the school and manage this effectively, be imaginative in trying new ideas/initiatives in a manner that can get the whole school behind their ideas. They will need to be diligent in tracking changes and update the progress with appropriate actions that need to be addressed. | Teachers | Teaching staff prepare lessons to ensure students are engaged and that effective learning for all abilities takes place within the classroom. They prepare assignments/assessments and mark work that has been submitted to give students feedback. They ensure that the information they deliver is current and correct to best of their knowledge.
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
This then allows the teacher to amend the way in which they are teaching or what they are teaching to accommodate the results. It also gives students a way of identifying the areas they need to develop. The benefit of formative assessment is that a teacher can continually evaluate the learner and put them on the correct path if they are making mistakes. Summative assessments are used at the completion of a course. It is often formal and demanding and under controlled exam conditions.
UNIT 012 Principles of assessment in lifelong learning Main methods of assessments in life long learning are: academic (knowledge) and vocational (performance). Dependent on the subject, the assessment method may need to be adapted, using and adapting both these type assessments will ensure that the students acquire optimum achievement during my lesson. To decide which of these is most appropriate, the assessment cycle will be used: • Initial assessment - used to identify if my students already know something about the subject to be assessed and the needs of my students (for example more support). • Assessment planning - used to plan the suitable types and method of assessment following relevant organisational guidelines. • Assessment activity - to determine this, the method could be assessorled like completing questioning or student-led like gathering evidence of competence.
When assessing an ELL students’ performance, there must be group work that will be close to the real world like problem solving and personal communication. The English language development is monitored overtime by the teacher’s observations and the student’s self-assessments. The assessments are used at every level of the learning process. Both the teacher and student will benefit from the initial results and the ongoing
Theory Question 4 Explain the ways in which you would establish groundrules with your learners, which underpin behaviour and respect for each other The setting up of groundrules should be made at the beginning of a course to make sure learners are aware of the boundaries and rules within which they are expected to work. Without groundrules being established classroom management may become an issue, which could promote disruption and ultimately affect the learning within the group. When discussing ground rules with learners, it is important for the tutor to establish a set of their own rules, which promotes their commitment to the learning of the group. Incorporated in my own ground rules would be; • Arrive on time to the class and finish the class on time; • To be organised and fully prepared for lessons; • Give everyone within the group equal
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.
The research design will then be introduced taking into account the theoretical frameworks and the review of the pertinent research. In this presentation, the qualitative study proposed is to learn the impact of educator perception on the impact of professional learning communities on student performance will be outlined. This will be followed with a discussion concerning the limitations of this study as well as precautions taken to protect those involved with the study. Theoretical Framework Organizational change and socio-cultural learning theories inform this study because they contextualize the problems with universal curriculum frameworks. It is through these theories that we will gain more insight into the issues associated with school system-wide leadership (Knapp, et al, 2008, p. 35).
Unit 307 (1.5) Explain how assessment for learning can contribute to planning for the future learning carried out by :- (a) the teacher Teachers should think about the strategies they use when pupils carry out formal assessed tasks. (Consider baseline assessment at the start of a topic to assess prior knowledge. If assessment shows lack of understanding, stop and address how to overcome understanding) Teachers must think about and plan their questions carefully. Feedback from pupils enables the teacher to assess whether the pupils completely understand what they have been learning. Teachers can analyse performance using tests or questioning the pupils after completing an activity.
Victoria Alcock Preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector level 3 Assignment 1 Describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries Would be in terms of the teacher training cycle. The role of a teacher/trainer can be a challenging one, not just for the teacher/trainer for the learner as well. As a teacher/trainer it is my responsibility to ensure that the learner/s are achieving to the best of their ability at a pace they are able to cope with.in my role as a tutor I have to: Identify needs when a new learner arrives to my sessions for the first time I will introduce myself and any other staff/learner that may be in the room. Once introductions have been done I will explain the course to the learner find out
