We use a quickscan, and VAK test which helps to determine the learner style, (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic). From the results we can evaluate the correct level and course for the learner to be on and also if additional support is needed throughout the course. Support must be in place before during and after initial assessment. For me I have a LSA in the workshop with me to assist with the learners who may require it. Within the teaching role of my subject it is important I provide a safe learning environment for all students, ensuring that they all engage and participate actively in practical and theory lessons alike.
Therefore they have a clear goal of learning and are very independent. My role as a teacher therefore is to be able to help my students develop the right strategies to be successful in life. However as a teacher I should be able to take advantage of any learning situations and tools that are available. Teaching should be done based on enquiry learning, meeting the learners needs and I should be able to differentiate instructions. It is the teachers responsibility to write syllabus for a course, making sure that all the learning outcomes, aims and objectives are covered in the right way.
For example I find it essential to discuss the day’s lesson plan and targets with my class teacher. This gives me clear guidance and an objective when working with pupils, of what support I need to give in order to achieve the day’s targets. In the school environment, I am aware that I am acting as a role model to the children. How I communicate with colleagues, parents and pupils will reflect on how children will then communicate. It is important to adapt the way I communicate, because different audiences require different communication styles so that I can be understood easily.
I will listen to what suggestions parents can make to help improve the classroom and make it a better learning environment. Philosophy: I am going to gather up students and parents and allow them to give me advice on how to improve the classroom. I am going to arrange the classroom so it is open and inviting. It will be a well-developed learning environment. Where I can teach the children how to read, write, and focus on what the need the most and not repeating what they already know.
PTLLS Level 3 Assignment 1 1.1. Explain own role, responsibilities and boundaries of own role as a teacher. “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” ― Benjamin Franklin The main role of a teacher is to teach your subject in a way that actively promotes learning and engages your students during every session. If teachers actively pursue creating a good first impression, offers support, is approachable and well versed in their chosen subject Students will enthusiastically learn and develop. To promote this learning Teachers should use the learning cycle – the cycle has 5 key stages that should be constantly flowing – In a teaching environment Teachers should always promote healthy boundaries.
Sessions incorporating visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles ensure student’s have equal rights to learning and provide the opportunity to re-evaluate what is already known while exploring aims and objectives from a different perspective. I teach cleaning classes where motivations and previous experience constantly change as better cleaning is experienced. My role is to create a safe learning environment to establish open trusting relationships. Recording changes by completing relevant admin ensures records are up to date in order to evaluate changes to forthcoming aims and objectives. The main responsibility of the teacher is to continually reassess development and changes during the course and create a seamless transition to ensure smooth delivery.
PTTLS 7303: level3 award in preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector. Q.7 State the different assessment methods available and explain the ones you world use for your subject area, including reference to initial assessment records you would complete and explain why. The assessment methods available for teaching are as follows: initial assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment. Summative assessment is assessing whether the student can apply knowledge taught within the lessons, this generally is the completion of a module or course, you will know with this assessment whether the student has passed, this assessment is usually formal. Summative assessments are also necessary to give feedback to the student if the feedback offered is adequate this can be also classed as formative assessment.
Critically evaluate theoretical approaches to understanding behaviour management as a process and critically reflect on how this impacts on your values and assumptions about effective behaviour management, supported by examples from your school experience. Introduction Behaviour management in the primary classroom is a topic discussed at length by all teachers in Primary Schools throughout the world and has also been researched extensively by academics. The management of children’s behaviour in the primary classroom is vitally important so that a positive learning environment is created. Forty percent of teachers spend more time keeping order than teaching (Johnson, 2004). Students awarded Qualified Teacher Status need to “Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment” (DfES, 2012).
By interrogating, for example, teaching journals, evaluations, student/peer feedback, personal goals/outcomes, and/or role model profiles, teachers can reveal aspects of their pedagogy that may need adjustment or strengthening. Self-reflection is the foundation for reflective teaching. Going further than self reflection to understand student experiences is, for Brookfield, "of utmost importance" to good teaching (35). Teachers can reflect upon, for example, student evaluations, assessment
Learning Style Inventory Paper Jennifer Lomibao Teaching and Learning Strategies-HSN540 Mary Dowell PhD, RN, BC March 26, 2012 Learning Style Inventory Paper Learning style refers to the unique way an individual prefers to learn. This reflects an individual’s predisposition to implement a particular learning strategy despite the specific demands of the class. It is worth noting that the learning styles are conventional modes used to process information by individuals. Because individuals have a unique way of perceiving, organizing, and retaining information, it is imperative that educators effectively design and implement teaching methods that enhance learning to these diverse learners (Billings & Halstead, 2009). Studies show that students perform better in the classroom when their learning styles match the instructional methods implemented by their teacher (Farooq & Regnier, 2011).
