For example, the most effective method would be, to respect the students and their feelings before they can respect you. Dr. Michaels stated that, “You will gain respect by knowing the emotional, physical, and psychological place of your students. “Show that you care.” This all leads back to students wanting to know that their teacher not only cares about their education but them as an individual. As an after school instructor, I have dealt with many cases where a students didn’t feel like they had to show me respect right off the bat. Which is something that I can understand, because children don’t really comprehend the importance of respect or manners, its something that has to be taught to them.
I did have some pressure from my parents to get good grades and to learn right from wrong. So the law of influence was a big thing because I wanted to be just like my parents. In my teen years, I was also using the law of influence because of how much I wanted to impress and get the approval of my parents. I guess through my whole life I was looking for approval from my elders in my life. I also wanted to grow up to do something to help people.
Gatto is saying that schooling is made for kids to adapt to; it has adaptive qualities, therefore there is a chance for everyone to succeed if they really want to, but it takes away from any individual thinking. Conforming is another evil of school because it makes us forced to learn things we really have no interest in and as Gatto states “its intention is to make children as alike as possible”(153). A lot of students use this excuse while they are in high school “when am I ever going to use this again in life” ill be honest I have said it before but I don't necessarily agree with these students because you need to build a base education before you figure out what you want your schooling to focus on. Kids change their minds everyday, I realized that I’m not quite sure I want to be an art major anymore, even being in the first couple of classes I knew it wasn’t for me
Cooperating with others means being able to work with others. JROTC helps me learn to cooperate with my classmates. By doing JROTC activities in class with other cadet, I’m able to learn to sharing my ideas and working together to achieve common goal. Leadership is the ability to influence subordinates in order to accomplish a mission. I have learned in JROTC that as a leader if I show my subordinates the values that I have such as respect, loyalty, integrity, honor, duty, selfless service and personal courage, then they will respond in the similar fashion.
Especially when I practice everyday you tend to learn fast. Another weapon I carry is for protection. It is the large, rectangular shield that curves around my body. This protects my whole body and stuff that may fly up in air. So don’t trouble yourself because I am very trained and protected.
Customized Learning Theory: Differentiated Instruction and Inclusion in the Classrooms Katie Wood Liberty University “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtains guidance,” (Proverbs 1:5, ESV). This is a powerful statement from God’s Word that should guide the role teachers play in their classrooms. “Good teachers know their subject matter and have mastered pedagogical skills,” (Slavin, 2009, p 24). Teachers who are willing to base their lessons off of research, in order to learn, will understand what it truly means to guide their students in the right direction. However, teachers cannot guide if they do not understand their students and how the students interpret learning in the classroom.
I have a fear of failing because I think too much of it instead of taking deep breathes and have positive thoughts that I can do this if I put my mind to it. My professional goal is to become a early childhood development teacher. I chose this career because I love working with children all ages. I feel that with my personality being social, I can interact with kids and/or people in my professional career and also in my personal life. Also if there ever come a time when I have to deal with a child when they are being rude, I would have to be patient with the child and also try to get the child to trust me.
WHAT KIND OF LEARNER AM I? One of the most prominent theories on learning styles is that by David Kolb, he proposes that learning is a cyclic process, it is whereby a student goes through a few stages that determines what learning style suits him best and how he likes to learn. In this essay, I will talk about David Kolb’s experiential learning cycle; I will explore the four stages of learning, his learner types and how my preferences relate to Kolb’s theory. I am a Diverger; therefore, I usually analyze a problem before giving my opinions. I like to investigate and see a situation from different angles, and I will support this by giving examples from past experiences, furthermore, I will reflect on how I can become a better learner.
* Tactile ~ Lastly I am a Tactile Learner. I learn by touching and doing. I understand and remember things through physical movement. I am a "hands-on" learner who prefers to touch, move, build, or draw what I learn, and I tend to learn better when some type of physical activity is involved. I need to be active and take frequent breaks, I often speak with my hands and with hand gestures, and I may have difficulty sitting still.
