“Repetitive behavior involves repeated movements and verbalizations. These include motor movements, persistent attention to parts of objects and strict adherence to routines.” (Turnbull A, Turnbull R, Wehmeyer M, Exceptional Lives Special Education in Today’s Schools 2010). Now, with students who have autism it is very important to have a good simple routine and stick to it. And it is very important to tell them about a change at the beginning of the day rather than waiting right up until it is supposed to happen. Sticking to a routine will help things to not be so chaotic when it comes to transition time and telling the student about a change will help that student deal with that change before problem behavior can occur.
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.
Me Talk Pretty One Day Although language is one the basic ways human beings interact and communicate, the process of learning a new non-native language can be difficult and exhausting. In this process, the teacher has a vital role, which is why it is essential that the teacher have an appropriate attitude towards his or her students. How influential is a teacher? The short story “Me Talk Pretty One Day”, written by David Sedaris, is an excellent example of this. David Sedaris wrote “Me Talk Pretty One Day” in 2005.
Not all students learn the same way, therefore, teachers need to try different ways to to teach the material. Students also must learn to try different rules and strategies because the ones they are using may not be effective in solving their problems. Also, these children may have more problems working through these assignments because of their culture, the familiar cognitive landscapes, as Rose described it, have changed. The strategies and rules these kids have used before, simply won't work when applied to the new assignments that they are given. Could we also say that these new assignments are ineffective
Identifying non attendance could indicate a problem external to the teaching setting which may benefit from referral to other professionals or could point to students’ dissatisfaction with the teaching style which could be addressed by reassessing the teaching methods used in order to promote more inclusive practice. Assessment on the course forms an ongoing weekly record of how students are grasping lesson plan objectives and provides valuable feedback for both students and myself as their trainer. Monitoring student achievements, skills, abilities and progress through ongoing assessment, tracks their progress with feedback given to confirm that learning objectives have been met. Assessment also enables identification of any special needs that require more attention through setting targets for improvement in order to progress more effectively with the course. Recording special needs allows for assessment of the effectiveness of interventions implemented and gives students a measure of appropriate progress towards
| * Real discipline has teachers tell students what they are to do then have them repeat until they do it right. This helps students build a non-thinking routine. * Teachers set limits and expect students to abide by them. Students know what is expected and if there is confusion the teacher will explain but limits are not negotiable. | Weaknesses | * Listing procedures can be time consuming.
Trainers should help students in creating such presentations and taking questions .All these activities require more efforts. The trainers should design the course carefully so that they can achieve the main objectives of learning business English rather than involving games in them so that learners are helped not only in learning but also even in the future job activities. Disagreement:- In the teaching of business English as a foreign language, games are very important. Every new learner finds it difficult to cope up with learning of n w language initially and continuous classroom discussions becomes monotonous, slow and boring. Games make lesson learning fun.
and Jones H. (2002) p249 write specifically about children who have English as an additional language. They state that: “Children who speak English as a second language may need more encouragement and support when undertaking writing activities. Assistants and teachers should be aware that they make lack confidence and need to have more time to think about the task” Pupil B: This child found it difficult to understand the rules of the game, thus needing lots of reinforcement and explanation in order to support him. In order to make ‘Pupil B’ feel part of the group I asked the whole group to participate in recalling the rules of the game and break down each step. I also suggested to the class teacher that in future activities there may be pictorial instructions to help and support children understand the rules of the game.
Therefore you would need to try and make it more engaging and stimulating, perhaps by making it more difficult or time-consuming so the students really have to work to complete it. If the activities are taking longer than expected and you can see that the children are struggling, things again would need to be addressed and changed. Without evaluation the learning activities things would never change and learning would become incredibility boring. We all need to reflect on learning to make improvements for a better learning environment for children and young adults.
It focuses on using the Bottom up technique as discussed earlier which has proven its effectiveness over and over already. It connects the students background knowledge with the current information and this is the bases of understanding and learning. However schema theory is not perfect as it relies heavily on the students background knowledge and this can be problematic if the teacher does not understand the socio-cultural background of the students. "Thus, rather than attempting to neutralise texts, it would seem more suitable to prepare students by "helping them build background knowledge on the topic prior to reading, through appropriate prereading activities" Carrell
