There are many different ways in which pupil learning may be affected, for example, being distracted too easily, easily influenced by others, concerned about what peers think, misbehaving to gain attention and arguing or fighting during break times. Explain the sorts of problems that might occur when supporting learning activities and how to deal with these. 5 3.6 There are numerous different reasons why support staff could have difficulties when supporting learners. They may be: The learning activity | Sometimes it may be a case of changing or adapting different strategies for pupils to work with so that they understand what they are doing, this may be if the teacher has set work that the student you are supporting isn’t capable or finds it more difficult to understand, you need adapt or deliver the activity in a way to help the child to understand. | Learning resources | When there is a lesson that requires different equipment to be used, make sure you know it is in working order, check you know how to use it, that it is functioning and that pupils will be able to use it.
Difficulty with reading and writing If a child is having problems with reading and writing this could cause concern. This could be recognised, as a child would be at a delayed rate to the rest of his/her peers. This could affect the child’s /young person’s behaviour/social development...Low self esteem and loss of confidence may be a result. With peers of the same being more advanced ridicule and bullying may result Learning to communicate is one of the main skills a child needs to help them develop in all areas. They can quickly fall behind from peers of the same age.
These rules are sometimes written in a way that they can be like targets for the children e.g. ‘I will walk quietly around school’ instead of ‘Do not run in school’. As rules like this could be difficult for younger pupils to understand, some schools have separate rules for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. For example, one KS1 rule could be to be honest to others while a KS2 rule could be to ‘try your hardest in everything you do’. In some cases, if the children do not understand a rule (this could be down to the way the rule is worded) then staff must discuss them regularly during class and assembly time so that the pupils can remember them.
Children are put into groups in order to give them the best learning potential and for their learning to be appropriate for their age and level of understanding. Some children can be easily distracted, so would work better in a smaller group with adult supervision to keep them on task and encouragement them to keep focused. Potential issues that may arise in group learning could be that some children may take over the group and always answer before others, which in turn not all children in the group get to put their opinions, idea's or views across. It could cause ineffective communication between the group if a few are not understanding the task or some may be shy and introvert. Due to the nature of working in teams, children can sometimes find that they are not working effectively, which negatively impacts on their learning, and their ability to progress.
Formative Assessment in tracking learner progress Formative assessment (assessment for learning) is engaged during a course or programme. This is the type of assessment used and it allows teachers to adjust targets and objectives to suit the student until they develop skills and become more confident. Formative assessment is usually informal (Formative informal) and can take place at any time during the teaching and learning process. Feedback from formative assessment will be beneficial to both student and teacher as it not only allows the student to recognize their success and look at areas for development but it allows the teacher to evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and look to improve on future sessions. Formative assessment is often seen as being motivational as it can be seen as a review rather than an assessment.
Actively encourage and support learners in becoming independent. Will lead learning “guided” groups, modelling concepts and language that the adult leading the learning has used. Will alter an activity or change the apparatus if an activity does not meet the learners needs to enable them to achieve or exceed the expected outcome. Are acutely aware of learners capabilities/prior learning/understanding and plan very effectively to build on these. The areas that I have assessed as “good” and therefore need improving are: Enable learners to access resources appropriately – I feel that I need to make more time to be able to show the children how they can get the best from the resources that they have available to them.
Most students try to avoid being lectured or get in trouble for something they can avoid. This is definitely extrinsic motivation that in turn create intrinsic motivation. Also, being able to see others students succeed around them can also motivate. If I don't care about my homework but I see that my friends do, I might be more likely to start caring about it
If you know the learning style of the student, it is easier to convey the message you are trying to convey. Teachers adapt to their students and help them according to their style learning. Knowing the learning strategies influence teaching and learning by allowing the teacher know what is going on and giving students a chance to understand the material. These learning strategies help both: the teacher and the student. References Roell, K. (2014, January 1).
By basing knowledge on how children develop and learn, it can help make more developmentally appropriate activities. The children would learn more, and you would be more successful as a teacher. *Appreciate and support the bond between the child and family. If you appreciate the bond between the child and family, teaching in the classroom
Is the knowledge credible and reliable to the student who is utilizing it? It would be most effective for students if a post-secondary information literacy component was one of many in a long program of instruction starting in primary school. The need for learning approaches that emphasize synthesis, and the central role of information in developing discipline-specific intellectual frameworks make the teaching of information literacy (Russell,
