It can leave the participant feeling bad with seemingly no way forward. Verbalising and exploring a learners thoughts can assist them gain a positive perspective of their own work and ability and will also help identify problem areas, therefore providing both the teacher and the learner with the ability to develop e.g. asking a learner where they think they did well and where they think they could improve. Some situations in which constructive feedback is required can include; ongoing performance discussions, providing specific performance pointers, following up on teaching discussions, providing correct guidance, providing a learner with consequences of their behaviour. Clues at when constructive feedback is needed can be when a learner asks for your opinion on how they are doing, this can be a 'cry for help' from a learner.
Exercise 1.1 Specific ways I need to change to be a more helpful person is to always look for the other person first and not just for myself. I have a tendency to put myself first instead of others and I really need to work on this quality. I have great listening skills and make eye contact but I don’t move around when I talk so I feel that would make me a more helpful person also because they would not be bored.

The traditional system supporters say that learning consists of regular routine and “tough study”. Even if the final output of work or training is not understood, the guidelines must still be followed. The overall learning at the end will be useful irrespective of the student’s interaction or knowledge of objective – it is helpful if the learning was done with delight rather than being oppressed to the student. Many people are going against tradition as they say that a student must know the goal and objective in order to understand in a better way. The counter argument is that a student will learn as per his or her own understanding and a few concepts may be missed.
It has been found that peer tutoring is often best when the tutor is only slightly older than the student, as the material will be fresher in the tutors mind and the student will not feel so intimidated by their tutor. However, there are cultural differences, tutoring styles vary. In each of these strategies children or older learners provide scaffolding to one another and helps them through ZPD.

Reflection Paper Kyle Patterson Mrs. Eastman EDUC 111 Reflection Paper Before I registered for Introduction to Teaching, I had a misconception of teaching. I just thought that teaching was going to be an easy and fun occupation, but at the same time very rewarding. I also thought that I was completely ready to enter the field.
