We will also touch on the ever-changing assessment strategies that must continue to grow in order for these concepts to strategically aid student and teacher learning. In order to understand the true meaning of a multimodal system of learning we must also consider that just because there are new ways of teaching and learning this does not simply mean that we stop focusing on traditional aspects of literacy within our classroom. Linda Christensen touches on what she calls learning the “standard” without humiliation, where she states that students should not memorize standard rules of English “without asking the question of who makes the rules, who enforces the rules, who loses from the rules, and who uses the rules to keep some in and keep others out” (Christensen 176). The issue that many take with new forms of learning is that individuals may feel traditional modes of teaching will be long forgotten. Although multiliteracies focus on novel means in which students learn for example; computers, educational games, graphic novels, it is also about the content within
You have to acquaint yourself with new development in the field of Inclusive Education including intrinsic and extrinsic barriers to learning and development. In order to give support to a learner who has a barrier to learning, you should be familiar with the basic knowledge of the barrier. This should guide you to develop forms of support for learners with barriers to learning Assessment criteria: You will be assessed on you understanding of the various concepts and the practical application of the theory by explaining the support that you as a teacher can render in the classroom. Question 1 You are requested by the principal of the school where you are teaching to address the other staff members about Inclusive Education is and what intrinsic and extrinsic barriers to learning and development are. Write your speech making use of headings and subheadings.
For individual learning styles to be met, within a good learning sessions a teacher will ensure he/she takes a multi-sensory approach to teaching, this way each learner can work to the best of their ability. Initial assessment and contracting before any learning takes place will ensue that learner needs are highlighted, therefore suitable support and lesson planning can take place. Inclusive learning is also about promoting a supportive and motivating learning environment that addresses the needs and barriers of all learners. For example, learners with wheelchairs need have appropriate access to the classroom and other facilities. Task 13 Strength and limitation of teaching and learning approaches Strengths and limitation of teaching and learning approaches are when a teacher implements all inclusive teaching
The group does have purpose as they plan to create an after-school program which will improve school performance both by the students and the teachers. The group is structured as the Woodson Foundation and the school system will develop a new agency that will draw on resources from both organizations as well as a representative from the NCPIE. This is where the group comes up short from the storming stage as there is no leadership yet. They are still establishing ground rules such as: Will the new jobs be unionized? And Will the Woodson Foundation be able to use hard data?
(Include specific information pertaining to FBA.) Schools will always be filled with students who have needs. According to IDEA we must provide appropriate education to meet the needs of all students. These students come to us with leaning, behavioral, social emotional issues- some might be at risk and in need of strategies and supports. There would be far fewer discipline problems and behaviors requiring corrections and discipline if the student’s basic needs are being met within the classroom.
(2008, p.153). These two statements make sense because if a student feel's excluded and their needs are not met, then they will most likely not be motivated which may inhibit their overall development. Ann Gravells says in her book that ‘differentiation is about using a range of different approaches and resources to meet the needs of individuals and groups.’(2011, p.63). This means that teachers should endeavour to meet learning needs and create an environment where all students can be included in the learning process. This would involve planning, examining teaching methods and styles, effective use of resources and also how we, assess the students and ourselves.
To better understand this aspect of the role of the teacher, one would have to understand the teaching and learning cycle The teaching and learning cycle The teaching and learning cycle enables training to be effective if all the stages in the cycle if followed through. Identification of needs: As a tutor, my first role in the teaching and learning cycle would be to identify learners’ needs and the needs of the organisation. It is suggested that this is carried out before teaching starts. In an ideal situation, the learner would have completed some documentation that will provide the tutor some advance information on the learner. An example of this would be in a case of a learner who requires extra support i.e.
