This is normally a mark sheet, (see App 1), Sometimes the tutor will notice something important that wasn’t on their framework, and they can adjust their framework for the future. This flexible framework is the best way to ensure that everything the Tutor is looking for has been taken note of. Tutor observations are really useful for helping to support learners because it allows us to understand how each student learns, or what particular things they struggle with, for instance maths
In this situation, it is important that the Teaching Assistant report their concerns to the classteacher. The teacher can then implement strategies or interventions to help the child improve. The teacher may already be aware that the child has difficulties and the report made by the Teaching Assistant will contribute to evidence gathered by the teacher. A concern such as difficulties with reading could have a knock-on effect on their other literacy skills such as writing. It may also highlight underlying difficulties such as dyslexia or learning difficulties.
Planning - the teacher will ask her staff to look over her planning and to give an opinion on it, if the staff feel there could be any improvements then they will tell the teacher. Delivery - we would make sure all the equipment needed for the lesson is all ready for when the pupils come to do the lesson. The teacher may ask for one member of staff to work 1-1 with a pupil to keep them on task, and the rest of the staff to support the other pupils. We would take our lead from the teacher and listen to what she wants us to do. Review - we would review the lesson at the end of the day and talk about what we thought went well and what we thought could do with improving.
One of the key responsibilities I feel for a teacher is to provide information, wisdom. In order to share their knowledge and understanding of a subject or topic a teacher needs to have a deep understanding of the topic that they are teaching. However alongside this a teacher should not claim to know it all, and be willing to learn from their students. ‘Knowledge may be seen as a level of awareness, consciousness or familiarity gained by experience, learning or thinking.’ (Jarvis 1987). It is important that the teacher appreciate any input from their students, whether the answer is correct or not.
* Ensure that, in practical classes, all work must be seen as ongoing by your tutor. * Ensure that you follow the assessment instructions very closely and ask your lecturer if you are unsure about any aspect of the assessment process. How does LearningWiseScotland authenticate your work? LearningWiseScotland has a number of methods
They will need to plan how they are going to carry out the research and collect their results for use in Part 2 and Part 3. The research can be carried out during lessons or as a homework exercise. Candidates complete Part 1 under limited control. The work of individual candidates may be informed by working with others and work may be completed out of the classroom but candidates must provide an individual response. Teachers may give generic, informal feedback while the work is being completed but may not indicate what candidates need to do to improve their work.
Methodology The sources used to prepare this report include, books, internet sources, journal articles, newspaper articles and awarding body resources and information. The writer also refers to his own and his peers’ teaching experience, planning, delivery and evaluations in conjunction with information from classroom taught sessions. Further to this report the writer will explore and present an explanation in which theories, principles and models of assessment are currently applied to his practice. Discussion How different theories, principles and models of assessment can be applied when assessing learning. 'Nothing we do to, or for our students is more important than our assessment of their work and the feedback we give them on it.
Task 18 You are to select either a workplace task such as changing the toner in the printer and use the method described in this section to demonstrate the task to the learner, You should ask your teacher, trainer or a peer to observe your demonstration and give you feedback. You may wish to revise your learning plan based on the feedback that you receive. Task 19 Group training You will need access to a small group to complete this activity. This could be your existing work team or a group of peers if you are undertaking this unit of study in a class room. You are to select a topic from this workbook, such as identifying your learning needs, preparing a learning plan or performance appraisals and deliver a training session to your
It identifies any weaknesses in a student’s knowledge such as gaps and misconceptions the teacher would normally fail to notice. It will allow the teacher the ability to modify any lessons surrounding these misconceptions. It is very similar to a formative assessment since it allows the teacher to check on the student's progress and understanding. Through these interviews, the teacher can reduce misconceptions in the lessons and promote understanding of the curriculum which will help the student in their following academic
The opposite learning styles, involving listening and verbal skills, are more difficult for me. I would much rather learn how something works by using it than by listening to someone tell me how it works. When any of my teachers stand in front of the classroom and just reads form the text book. This type of teaching is my kryptonite, the words just pass right through me. To help me my learning process in class's like that i need to recreate the lectured material using my own visual tools and adapt my teacher's preferred teaching methods to my preferred learning styles.
