I will have had to design the lesson and plan its delivery so that it holds everyone’s interest. I will also have a duty of care, act as a role model and afford pastoral care in some cases. I will have to assess the learners in order to identify their individual needs, and keep records of their progress. However, I also have a responsibility to see that the lesson delivery is done in a fair and equal manner, taking into account learners different
That meant the instructor should select learning tasks that are worth learning and develop this content in ways that help students to appreciate their significance and application potential to analyze the students and identify learning styles, such as active or reflective students. These learning styles can be categorized with the relevance portion of Keller's ARCS model because they assist in matching a student's motives. The first subcategory in relevance strategies is goal orientation. Relevance strategies highlight how the students' previous experiences and skills can be used to help them understand, learn new concepts, and link to students' needs, interests, and motives. This strategy can help teach the concept of writing academic summaries, which are essential to incorporating sources in argument essays.
The teacher should have the ability to check learners understanding during lessons. It is important that the teacher recognises learners may respond in different ways to feedback and should adapt techniques accordingly. Evaluation of the course is essential to ensure it is up to date and still relevant, that it meets the needs of the learners, and that objectives and learning outcomes are being achieved. Self-evaluation is also important to ensure teaching techniques are appropriate and that the
Student records, attendance, achievement and disciplinary details will be some of the information kept. By assessing need I can gather the information required to enable me to plan and design a suitable learning experience that can be delivered satisfactorily. My responsibilities are many and varied; from ensuring that the course delivers on its aims and outcomes to satisfying the students’ learning needs both from a course material perspective and any further assistance they may need to complete the course. By making good use of the assessment and evaluation parts of the TTC I will be able to ensure that I am meeting their needs and that the course is delivering the content and standard that is expected. Boundaries are ethical and course and student related.
According to Gravell, (2012:18), the main role of the Teacher is to help learners achieve their chosen programme. Gravell went further to explain that this can be achieved by using various teaching and learning methods whilst taking into account learners individual needs. As a Team leader in the Princes Trust I will wear many hats: friend, judge, mentor, different roles for extracurricular duties. When I say mentor it means many things from a role model to coach to confidant, someone I believe who encourages positive behaviour this could be with the use of more responsibilities in the class room. Helping them improve the skills this could be through communication for example being able to understand situations and resolve differences which will build trust.
Rubrics are a great tool to help students understand expectations for an assignment. By providing students with a rubric that clearly states expectations; they are able to see what is needed to receive the grade they desire. Rubrics can be used for all grades and ages. A rubric for second grade would be simpler than one for a college student but both give the student a clear understanding of expectations. They also can provide feedback for students on their strengths, allowing them to see for themselves where they need to make improvements.
Unit 001: Essay on the Roles, responsibilities and relationships in lifelong learning. This is an analysis of roles, responsibilities and relationships in Lifelong Learning; by defining them in the context of teaching, and explaining the importance of promoting appropriate behaviour in the classroom. I will explore teachers responsibilities for identifying and meeting the needs of learners by encouraging and enabling all learners to reach their full potential; roles and responsibilities in promoting equality and diversity; relationships between teachers and other professionals, identifying boundaries and reviewing points of referral to appropriate support persons/agencies to meet the needs of learners; responsibilities for establishing and maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment; and compliance with key aspects of legislation and codes of practice relating to the role of teachers. There are numerous roles and responsibilities are numerous that teachers will undertake daily. According to Wilson (2009), roles describe functions of teachers.
They also must understand evidence and information and recognize the need to focus on those aspects of the school's program that will yield important gains in student learning” (). At the same time, teacher-leaders collaborate with different educators to broaden their own learning, advance effective school development efforts through professional
Introduction. Covering all the aspects and selecting the appropriate activities to develop language skills when teaching, could be a very challenging task for ELT practitioners as a result of many external factors such as: academic program, text books, materials or even facilities, reason why: “Thinking things through before you teach helps to reduce feelings of uncertainty or panic and inspires you instead with a sense of confidence and clarity.” (Woodward, 2001). I agree with this as the only way we can help and create meaningful learning is to foresee the activities that best-fit our teaching context and based on our pupil’s needs and interests. For this assignment, I will outline the plan and activities that I will follow during my three next lessons in order to give my students the extra practice they need to develop their language skills by using the target language presented in this lesson. I will also get into detail for one of these activities to describe the way I will organize the task along with the possible difficulties that my pupils might have during execution.
