Plan For Unit. This workbook will give you an outline of the content to be covered and the related text pages. It is not intended to be used alone but in conjunction with your text and teacher. It is expected that you will follow the workbook and read the related text, experiments and investigations before the lesson. It will be assumed that you have read the text and have some introductory knowledge of the work to be covered each lesson; failure to do so may affect your progress in class.
She asked what is the individual forum and the chat room forum. I explained to her that the individual forum is to post any private conversation or class assignments that are to be posted in that forum. And the chat room forum was for the students to speak about non related school work. She also had asked how could I tell what the other students were discussing, I let her know that each forums are used as a threaded discussion format. I also explained to her that if I posted a discussion question in a forum that my classmates could give me feedback on what they think about what I said.
Background For background information, I am studying teaching in order that I can have an understanding of how my students are learning, and some experience of teaching, so that when I come to assess them for their NVQs I appreciate how they got to the point of submitting their workbooks to me. Roles, responsibilities and boundaries The simple way of describing my role as a teacher would be to say that I am there to ensure my learners get their qualifications (Wilson 2008:4), but the Lifelong Learning Sector covers more than just formal qualifications; many people just want to learn for the enjoyment of doing so, or an employer may have set up an internal training course without a nationally recognised qualification at the end. Learners could be aged 14 upwards and have many different learning goals. As a teacher I will do more than just deliver the lesson. I will have had to design the lesson and plan its delivery so that it holds everyone’s interest.
Informal interviews are also done with candidates from day visits to courses by the IV. The assessors and staff utilise assessment through holistic approaches such as feedback wall, data upload to the centre and we have a standardisation meetings quarterly with the IV and once per year with the EV. This all collated by our centre manager Andrea. Other areas concepts such as Risk, equitable and being fair and transparent come through with our policies and procedures to link to the awarding body standards for the qualifications delivered. It also has a process for appeal and fairness that learners can refer to during the delivery if unhappy with a decision or outcome.
If you are reading for a class assignment retention is a necessity. It will help you in your class seminars, discussion boards, projects and exams. III. Formulate a plan A. If you only need basic understanding of what you have read you can: 1) Skim the reading material 2) Highlight the points you think are important 3) Take notes B.
It was quite apparent that she has sufficiently motivated the staff. Some of the staff members began asking their own questions and others contributed by answering questions raised from the SDC and other staff members. At the end, she gave a short written test for all the staff members to evaluate the teaching. The Instructional Method that the SDC used is a combination of a lecture with discussion method. According to Rankin et al.
This will involve time management, reading the right learning materials, putting efforts in studies as well as knowing what teachers expect from you. In studying for this module, I was able to read the necessary and core reading books, by reading through the module guides and reflecting back on each lectures. Cottrell (2003) outlined that reflecting is a natural practice, where we reflect back on an event that we were inspired or uninspired by.
With online learning if you have a question you can’t raise your hand, you have to send an email and wait for a reply. When you do online learning it’s up to you to keep yourself motivated, but in traditional institutions you have someone there to push you and encourage you. Instructors can foster intrinsic motivation by encouraging there students to do better, applauded them for something good. Let them be recognized for the re motivation. They can also make some of the class work into a game for the students.
The first step is pre teaching vocabulary in which teacher needs to introduce and review new vocabularies that relate to stories or information they are going to read. Then as they became more familiar with new vocabularies they will continue to build their vocabulary skill by making some sentences from those vocabularies. It is not their reading fluency increase but also their reading comprehension. Subsequently teacher must provide background knowledge in second step for example giving students some questions from general questions then slowly increase to the specific questions, showing some pictures about the material which students are going to read, allowing students to share about the topic. But before provide them with background knowledge teacher must measure students the level of prior knowledge about the material which is given to the students.
For some teachers who embraced this approach, handing the responsibility over to students is not an easy task. They have been used to an approach which has a learning content to be followed, mostly having prototype activities and answers to questions which can be found in books and other reference materials. That could have made the teacher a sage, an actor, and a fountain of knowledge in the past. But now, the process has to change. Paradigm shifting from traditional to modern is often described as a spotlight shifting from the teacher to the learner.
