NBT1 Task 1 Classroom Management Philosophy By Rebecca Skeens Introduction What makes a classroom a place of controlled, exciting exploration and learning? What is the difference between an unruly, chaotic, unsuccessful class and a wellordered, well-behaved, successful class? It is the teacher and her implementation of a well-thought out management plan. If left to their own devices, a class of students will develop and natural hierarchy consisting of the ruling few, their lieutenants, the foot soldiers, and the general peon population. This naturally formed structure is not conducive to a cooperative, respectful, safe, learning environment.
Often responsible for a curriculum area and/or specific areas of school management. Head teacher Has overall responsibility of the school, its staff, pupils and the education they receive. How does a team support the school According to an old cliché ‘there is no “I” in team’, which reminds us all of the importance of working together, sharing responsibilities and maintaining a balance of the different roles within the team. Common goals and beliefs in the team help us to- improve educational standards of the school by helping children in studies. encourage good relationships promote good community makes target achievement
Political Frame 1 Political Frame Kendra Kelly EDL/515 July 13th, 2015 Cynthia Spicer Political Frame 2 Political Frame School politics is often a touchy and avoided subject that plays a vital role in education. The political frame makes an organization competitive. It is a frame that places great emphasis on having power and winning. Although the political frame has the potential to be toxic in the field of education, it also has the potential of playing a positive role when the power is properly disbursed amongst individuals. The effective teacher leader can ensure that this proper disbursement takes place and that proper agendas are set, negotiations are appropriate and
NCLB set forth a certain criteria to be met, but allowed the states to determine how they would accomplish it. Therefore, each state handles assessment and accountability differently. This makes it hard to show success or failure of the programs. Supporters and critics alike can cite research that supports their opinion. My opinion of NCLB is it is flawed, developmentally inappropriate, ill funded, ←and→ leaving more students, teachers, ←and→ schools behind than ever before because The tests have turned into the objective of classroom instruction rather than the measure of teaching ←and→ learning.
Discuss a situation/s in which you experienced your own school teacher displaying qualities of an effective teacher. Group 4: If the principal of a school is ineffective in providing curriculum leadership and in instilling a culture of self-discipline among teachers and learners, there needs to be support in the form of social and professional services. Provide examples of ways in which the community can also play a role in transforming the school into one displaying an appropriate culture of teaching and learning and
Clinical Interview Self I. Introduction Teachers are consequential to the students’ future as they help educate children on important topics and skills necessary for their following academic years being the basis for the students’ knowledge and success. What students are taught in school by their teachers will eventually guide them in their future endeavors. A teacher’s main goal is for the students to succeed and master the course material. If a student can successfully complete the necessary assessment with a ‘good’ grade, the teacher assumes it portrays a student’s mastery over a topic.
I believe that students also need to learn about effective communication strategies primarily in school so that they can find ways to work together with their teachers and peers to find academic success. The successful methods of communicating that is learnt in school can be carried out in communicating with others out side of school as well. Within the classroom I encourage
Sanford and Evertson (1981) have similarly argued that classroom management is a major difficulty for “teachers and administrators in junior high schools” (p. 34). Offering a more positive learning environment in the classroom is not simple and research studies do not fail to reveal that the fundamental component in succeeding in managing it is in the teacher's capacities to oversee and direct the class.

When focusing on the various capabilities of students, it’s important to ensure that your teaching style is inclusive of all, and provides enough of support for each student. To demonstrate effective uses of inclusive practices, reasonable adjustments and curriculum differentiation I will use a case study of a student named Julie who appears to have dyslexia. Inclusive Practices Inclusive practices and teaching is all about ensuring that each student is taught in a way that suits their needs and abilities (Department of Education and Training, 2010). It incorporates various aspects such as including various teaching styles, identifying both educational and social needs, and being flexible within the various teaching and learning styles.
While this statements sound so simplistic, it’s really being lost in the world of teaching. While trying to keep up with testing standards and needs of students, we as teachers must make sure that we are not creating ignorant thinkers. As teachers we must accept that we don’t have all the answers and that just like students, we are constantly learning. When Dr. Wayson was speaking, I couldn’t
