Assignment 1 Task 1 Matthew Way Review what your role, responsibilities and boundaries as a teacher would be in terms of the teaching/training cycle. The Teaching cycle “Teaching and learning should be a structured process. Teaching and learning will follow a cycle and the teacher makes use of this to ensure achievement.” (Wilson L 2008:15) The teacher/training cycle is a continuous cycle ever adapting to teacher/learner needs. The cycle comprises of five processes Identifying needs, planning and design, delivery/facilitate, assess and evaluate. Within each of these processes a teacher has roles, responsibilities and boundaries. Identifying Needs “Each learner is unique and has individual needs. If the needs of our learners are discovered and met, the chances of success are greatly increased.” (Petty G 2004:496) Student’s need’s can be general requirements such as good heating lighting etc. When there is a new group of learners it is the teacher’s role/responsibility to identify the needs of each individual learner. This can be achieved through college enrolment forms, one to one interviews. Identifying needs such as learning disabilities is important at this stage as they may require extra support in class and this would need to be included in the planning and design process. Planning and Design Once the needs of the individual learners have been assessed it is the role and responsibility of the teacher to ensure that these needs are met. While planning and designing the scheme of work, lesson plans, presentations and handouts the learners general and individual needs should be included in all the planning. The teacher should include such matters as health and safety into the planning and design process and ensure students are aware of H&S matters such as fire drills etc. Lessons should be adapted to individual student needs where possible
