Subject: Week 3 Assignment |Topic: Sept 10 | | |Author: James|Date: September 9, 2010 11:55 AM | |Dennis[pic] | | 1. Describe key features of multicultural education.

Operating without a text as of yet, the following most frequently used definitions of multicultural education, taken from A Synthesis of Scholarship in Multicultural Education by Geneva Gay, 1994 by NCREL's Urban Education Program as part of its Urban Education Monograph Series (sub-references include), proved helpful to me: • An idea, an educational reform movement, and a process intended to change the structure of educational institutions so that all students have an equal chance to achieve academic success. • A philosophy that stresses the importance, legitimacy, and vitality of ethnic and cultural diversity in shaping the lives of individuals, groups, and nations.

Promoting positive behaviour for learning in the classroom In this assignment, I am going to examine the approaches to promote a positive classroom environment for learning in a secondary school. In researching this topic, I found the main mediating factors in creating a positive environment for learning are the school’s leaders, parents, pupil-teacher relationships, classroom environment and lesson planning. My reason for choosing this topic is that I feel my classes are sometimes routine and a matter of learning material and I find it hard to motivate pupils. Initially with my class groups, I think I was too authoritarian, demanding perfect behaviour, silences during lessons, reprimanding pupils for small issues, signing journals, giving out punishments and collecting punishments whereby wasting class time. It leads to confrontations, arguments, poor relationships with pupils and negative environments in the classroom.
