Time-outs can be effective, particularly with small children, when they are applied appropriately. However, if time-outs are misused, then they might lead to feelings of abandonment and unworthiness, blind obedience, and a lack of self-control. Moreover, according to the class notes, children are curious and have a drive to learn, and learning is intrinsically rewarding for them. In order to facilitate this learning and avoid punishment, we should try to create conditions that impede unwanted behaviors. It is important to note that if children feel that they are being manipulated or controlled by the rewards, their behavior will likely not change effectively.
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. When a student is welcomed into a neighborhood school it means to be a part of the school community and may now contribute in as many aspects of regular school life as desired. There are many benefits of inclusion into an age appropriate class and many schools are now incorporating the inclusive program into their school program and community. It is important to support the public education system and to fully incorporate
My students will develop a community that respects each other in the classroom as well as out of the classroom. Once these goals have been met I feel that the rest of the year will be smooth sailing! (Gallagher, 1999-2012). In the field of education, good classroom management is essential ( Froyer & Iverson, 1999) . Encouraging and establishing student self-control through a process of promoting positive student achievement and behavior is what every classroom needs.
These opportunities give the children confidence and promotes their interaction with each other. This has an impact on how each child behaves at the school. The school has the understanding that some children may be restricted and may not perform as well as others because of their different backgrounds or their learning capabilities. The school helps children feel content at the school by realising each child’s learning capabilities and provides extra intervention and other resources where needed and by promoting
To treat children equally a variety of unequal factors need to be taken into account in order to meet their entitlement as pupils. If my communications with the children are to be effective the factors that I must consider are: * The child’s age and stage of development * The context of the communication * Any communication differences In order for the communications to be pitched at the right level I need to know my pupils on a personal and professional basis, avoid any pre-judgements and fixed expectations and look for creative and individual solutions. a) The age and stage of development Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. When communicating with a child or young person I take into account their age, stage of development, ability and expectations and ensure my communicative approach is appropriate to them. Where necessary I adapt my style of communication and use appropriate communication systems that meet the child’s needs and abilities.
In my theory, an effective teacher must also be willing to change and adapt lesson plans based on the needs of the students. This requires good decision-making skills so that a teacher can chose what is best for the student and that will reap the most rewards. Test-taking is also important to this theory because tests must be appropriate for all learners. If we want students to pass, we must create test that are fair to each student and allows for strengths to be shown on the
Normally, (for numeracy and literacy) I support the higher ability group for Numeracy due to the 1-2-1 pupil I support, and the middle group in Literacy whilst keeping an eye on the other rest of group (just in case, but they are normally competent to work independently). When working with a table or a group, there will normally be pupils who are at different levels. That is why it is so important to be able to modify and adapt activities to enhance learning experiences. One important contribution whilst the learning activity is delivered is to ensure that learners understand the learning tasks and to reinforce the teaching points from the input. Being aware of the needs of pupils and the level of support they require, whether learning or personality needs.
Within pracitce Effective practitioners have a duty to value each child's indivudial needs and likes.children have to experience something before they get a true understanding of what it is like. Example. For the setting to be effective, practitioners must challenge and support children's philosophies of their doings, practitioners muct get involved in the childs thinking process. The practitioner can then be attentive of what the child shows an interest in andhave knowledge of whast the child understands. This can support the children's thinking and extend their learning.
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.
Help Improve Own and Team Practice in Schools Explain in detail how you would you would take note of children and young people's responses to your own practice: Take and note about you've interacted with children, how they've responded to you and if you can improve or better what happened in a similar situation in the future. It is always important to remember that children are not clones, some respond well to humour, some do not. Even sarcasm meant in the most light hearted manner to some children could be mistaken in some cases as a form of passive aggressiveness, therefore it is best avoided on a one to one basis. It is also important to remember that the people you are assisting are developing in life, some are more advanced than others and some are more sensitive than others. Children may laugh at bit of harmless humour delivered on a friendly manner if being spoken to as a group and it can also be helpful to speed their attention spans which will be on a varied level in every single class sometimes even on each end of the spectrum.
