Describe what your role, responsibilities and boundaries would be as a teacher in terms of the teaching/training cycle. The teacher’s role, responsibilities and boundaries are permanently changing, evolving and being assessed in order to give the best possible learning experience to all students. Using the teaching/training cycle can benefit your personal development if you refer to and use its principles. The first stage of the cycle is Identify needs, this begins with the initial assessment where we can determine the learners needs and the correct course for them to achieve.

Customized Learning Theory Angelique Young Liberty University Introduction There are many ideas and theories on what makes the best learning environment. Things to consider are teacher-student relationships, teacher-parent relationships, parent-student relationships and lastly, student-self relationships. Each relationship creates an environment that is intertwined with the other to create the best learning environment for the student.

By understanding the dynamic of these relationships, a teacher understands the development and learning of students and seeks opportunities to positively support not only their intellectual development, but also social and personal as well.
The chief characteristic of a thinking curriculum is the dual agenda of content and process for all students. Characteristics that derive from this agenda include in-depth learning; involving students in real-world, relevant tasks; engaging students in holistic tasks from kindergarten through high school; and utilizing students' prior knowledge. Effective communication and collaboration are essential to becoming a successful learner.

The data collected consisted of individual participant interviews, artifacts such as observing teacher’s guides, researchers’ field notes and observing teachers’ goal-setting documentation.
There are many reasons for conducting classroom assessments – assigning grades is an obvious one. Effective assessment allows teachers to monitor students progress toward achieving learning targets, determine whether instruction is effective, detect students strengths and weaknesses, diagnose learning problems, provide feedback, motivate and engage students, and prepare them for high-stakes tests (McMillan, 2011). Effective assessment therefore enhances teaching and learning as well as allows a means for providing information on student achievement and learning needs (McMillan, 2011). What assessment provides immediate information about how students are progressing in their learning and where they are having difficulties? Formative assessment, or assessment for learning, enhances student learning and achievement and helps teachers improve instruction (Wiliam, 2005).
I believe that students also need to learn about effective communication strategies primarily in school so that they can find ways to work together with their teachers and peers to find academic success. The successful methods of communicating that is learnt in school can be carried out in communicating with others out side of school as well. Within the classroom I encourage
I believe that as a teacher you are not only a provider of knowledge but also a role model for a child. Hook and Vass (2005) quote “Effective teachers teach not only the formal curriculum but also social and emotional skills too”. After extensive reading researching a number of theories behind the process of behaviour management in the classroom, I have
It is important to be knowledgeable of the school curriculum and age related expectations of pupils. Different pupils have different needs; supported students may have specific learning needs (ALN Register) and some may be capable of exceeding expectations of age and curriculum. K4. It is important to know clearly what the teachers aims and objectives and where they fit in the shceme of work.

Understanding is one of the most cherished goals of educating these students. Teaching for understanding can bring knowledge to life by requiring students to manipulate knowledge in various ways. For instance, educators must connect with each student and ensure they are connected to what they are learning. Therefore one may utilize different Educational Psychology perspectives in accomplishing this task.
