The bringing together of practitioners and professional from different areas provides an integrated way of working and aims to provide support to children and young people earlier to ensure they meet the Every Child Matters outcomes. It is important for all these sectors to work together as this promotes the young person’s welfare, safety and overall development. 1.2 Analyse how integrated working practices and multi agency working in partnership delivers better outcomes for children and young people. Positive outcomes for children and young people are possible if the professionals working with the young person and their families can share and agree on the way the young person concerned might be assessed, planned for and how those plans are to be implemented. Both the young person’s family and most importantly the young person themselves can be involved in any plans to ensure that the young person can achieve their full potential, this also helps to make sure the young person feels valued.
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. Children are children. For the most part, their developmental patterns can be predicted. Understanding the different stages of development can give teachers insight to not only academic performance, but also behaviors. This paper will focus on the learning theory of adolescents, primarily middle school students.
By doing this you are creating a good example for pupils who will therefore learn from you on how to communicate positively with others. When communicating successfully with parents and staff you are then more likely to work as a team to ensure that pupils will be able to gain maximum benefit from learning, which is the ultimate goal as a teaching assistant. 1.2) Explain the principles of relationship building with children, young people and adults. In order to build good relationships with others it is important to have a warm, friendly and caring attitude to others. Others need to feel relaxed and comfortable in your company and feel as if they can bring up any concerns they have.
The potential of pedagogical documentation, By Jacinthe Nguyen Can learning be visible? Children’s and teacher’s learning’s processes visible through pedagogical documentation. Life is full of learning moments for children as well as for adults. But how can we illustrate this learning in a manner visible to others? In the Reggio Emilia approach, children are seen as active and competent learners; and the use of pedagogical documentation reflects this view through exhibiting, analysing and reflecting on children’s learning (Patterson, 2005).
For example, they can learn behavior management techniques and communication strategies. Involvement by parents also allows for a more effective parent/teacher communication. Input can be given as to what the child’s interests are, which better assists teachers in supporting and teaching these
Children will have more confidence and are more likely to participate better if they have strong and effective positive relationships with their teachers. In one example taken from http://panhandle.unl.edu/at_the_center_78: the author Carol McCloud talks of filling a childs “emotional bucket” with positive interactions. If we fill this with emotions of value, such as trust, confidence and encouragement, we are certain to extract the most from the children we interact with. It is the same for the adults we need to communicate with. We want to work productively and well together as a team for the benefit of the children we wish to inspire and to create the right decisions for all those involved.
KEEP emphasises that secure relationships are valuable for effective learning in children. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) include forming secure relationships and learning through play as key elements. In my setting I adopt evidence-based practice: by building on skills gained from personal experiences both from childhood and from bringing up three children of my own; by undertaking relevant training and by sharing information with colleagues. Evidence-based practice helps support positive outcomes for children in many ways including: to ask questions about injuries that can’t be explained satisfactorily (Baby P enquiry); the value of early learning through ‘guided play’ (EPPE project) and reflective practice and self-evaluation being important (SPEEL
The learning environment in a classroom should include the physical setting as well as an emotional setting. Incorporating how the student may feel or respond to the setting encourages learning (Lopez). Several steps may be taken in order to ensure a positive learning setting. Ensuring comfort, health and safety support a positive environment. Providing support, praise and feedback gives students motivation to learn, make mistakes and accomplish new things.
Showing children’s work to others is important for children’s self-esteem so they can see what they have achieved and it also can improve children’s motivation in the future. The actual environment has a large impact on a child’s learning. Children, who feel more engaged in their classrooms, will most likely be more receptive. It can encourage children to interact more with their environment. Teachers should praise effort as well as perfect work.
Security is one of the priorities of the school allowing more focus on teaching and student learning. The Parent Welcome Center provided warmth and a family type atmosphere with a place to sit and read to your child. The Parent Welcome Center also provided helpful information for the parents on childhood educational and parenting skills to broaden themselves. The classrooms are laid out for the teacher to help optimize the children’s needs and to improve teacher work flow. The resources for the children are at a higher standard for learning and motor skill development.
