The most important thing to remember about art is that any child can participate and there is no right or wrong answer to an assignment.
Students awarded Qualified Teacher Status need to “Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment” (DfES, 2012). According to a review by EPP (2004), Initial Teacher Education (ITE) is a crucial focus for action in the area of behaviour management as it provides a unique opportunity to establish the foundations for effective practice. Under jurisdiction, the United Kingdom Government has the responsibility to provide free, compulsory education for all primary aged children allowing children to reach the best of their abilities achieving their fullest potential (United Nations, 1989). I believe it is therefore the responsibility of all teachers to keep updated with current research to provide each and every child they teach, the best possible positive and safe engaging learning environments that they can. I believe that as a teacher you are not only a provider of knowledge but also a role model for a child.

This includes the rights to employment, to buy a house, to be treated as people with needs and wants that they should be encouraged to tell others about. Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (2005). The Mental Capacity Act was introduced as a means of ensuring that everyone should be treated as able to make their own decisions until it is shown that they cannot.

Concepts and skills in literacy in one language will only transfer if they have been completely learned. Cummins calls this the “threshold hypothesis” and asserts that native language literacy can only transfer to a second language when students have reached a critical threshold in their native language” (New York State Education Department, 2000). When educators are appropriately trained to inspire LEP students to achieve to their greatest potential in their native language, these students will build confidence and skills in the second language. Teachers need to be proactive in ensuring LEP students have full access to content material and literacy experiences to help promote meaningful problem-solving and
Stephen Freeman English 135 Professor McCarthy 2/16/14 Education Reform and the Effects on Special Education Education reform has caused much controversy in recent years especially in special education. It is often asked if special education will be able to keep up with the strict demands of the newest form of education reform. Special Education was created to give those individuals with an intellectual and/or physical disability a free and proper education just like those without any intellectual impairment. The controversy mainly lies in, but not limited to, the primary school educational system.

In tier 3, schools guarantees that all students in need of intensive support would receive this help in addition to core instruction and not in place of it. The authors believe Response to Intervention (RTI) is “our best hope for giving every student the additional time and support needed to learn at high levels” (Burns, Appleton, & Stehouwer, 2005). However, the article reference misconceptions the school and teachers have concerning the implementation of RTI and how RTI will benefits the students versus creating extra work. Therefore, the schools “are implementing RTI from a compliance perspective, doing just enough to meet mandates and stay legal. For some schools, their efforts are driven by a desire to raise test scores” (Buffum, Mattos & Weber, 2010).

Changes have been made in the whole structure of the NHS in order to facilitate IP collaboration. The introduction of the National Service Framework (NSF) e.g.
In fact, we argue that this type of instruction may inevitably consign children to a narrow, limited view of reading that is antithetical to their long-term success not only in school but throughout their lifetime. In other words, we believe that such instruction might actually undermine, rather than promote, the very goals of improving literacy learning. In contrast to this trend, this article highlights the key principles of early literacy as defined in the 1998 International Reading Association (IRA) and NAEYC
I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” This quote would suggest that if you involve your students where they do what you are trying to teach them then they are more likely to understand and learn. 4.
