Caula Rogers Eng-105 English Composition 1 03/30/2014 Dr. Victoria Smith Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling Children with ADHD generally have trouble in school, only because school causes many trials for children with ADHD. ADHD is not a learning disorder; however it can cause children to have problems with learning. Furthermore, children with ADHD have an excessive rate of learning disorders and will have problems with other school-work like calculation and following a long with his/her teacher during direct instructional time. But with enduring and an efficient plan, the child will be capable of succeeding in the classroom. ADHD negatively can affect a child’s social and emotional behavior and the ability to control them in a positive manner in a school environment.
You really cannot imagine children who range the age of seven thru eight to grasp the information as teenagers can do. Another example could be to use your inside voice or may be quiet time when a teacher is doing a tutorial is being explained. The student must value other people who are trying to listen or even learn the materials that are being taught in the classroom. All age groups should learn to value others and the importance of being sociable. The vital abilities that each child must pick up are to understand necessary instructions.
The author says "there are appropriate times for noise" and the students should wait until those times to make as much noise as needed. Teachers must teach their students the ways of being quiet, i.e. whispering and not dragging your chair. It's the teachers fault if the students don't learn. Without these things a classroom will be in pandemonium.
Regular discussions with the class teacher regarding the scheme of work and knowing how they want you to support the class. K5. There are many factors that can affect the way pupils learn, different learning styles should be taken into account as they may differ from pupil to pupil. Ease of access is important for pupils who have needs that may affect their learning and it is important to make a suitable working environment. For example; a child with a visual impairment may need to be sat nearer to the board and have sufficient light, overlays and enlarged text.
Figuring out what motivates students both individually or in groups is a very challenging task for teachers, especially with the problems encountered such as large classrooms, packed curriculum, and standardized assessments that force teachers to teach to the average student, as opposed to each student. However, a teacher cannot fully engage each student until he or she understands what motivates his or her students. This is a prerequisite for formulating child-centered activities for learning. The teacher can then customize his approach or differentiate his instruction to cater to the needs of individual students, instead of a one-size-fits-all approach. Children come from communities, therefore it is also important for teachers to know a little about students’ social, economic and cultural background, and how these influence student motivation in the classroom.
From my experience in high school, students would disrupt the class, disrespect the teacher and do not bother to participate in group assignments. Children have been attending school for the better part of their lives and seem to get a little too comfortable in classroom situations. Acting out and disrupting the class is just another way to avoid work and, in their eyes, have fun in class. These students seem unaware that their entertainment is at other students’, who want to learn, expense. The disruption is a huge distraction for those who want to get an education and a good grade in the class.
Code of conduct. Most schools have a set of rules or a code of conduct that all children need to follow. It is very important that schools have set guidelines on how they expect the children to behave. This helps both the children and staff members. It is also very important that children are shown what is expected of them this is also very beneficial to behaviour management.
Every student has different needs and different talents. Each student comes to the classroom with a unique profile of abilities, knowledge, interests and learning styles. There are two basic factors that make students like or do not like some subjects; teaching styles, difficulties in some subjects and classroom environments. Firstly, students do not like some subject because of teaching styles. Some teachers are too strict.
Vocabulary can be very difficult, especially within the context of mathematics. Many words used in mathematics are also used in daily conversation with different meanings. The resulting confusion of multi-use words hampers student learning. Teaching vocabulary in mathematics is one key that has been seen to solve this problem but has received numerous criticisms from the educational field. Math teachers, feel pressured to cover a wide range of material in a short amount of time, may decide that adding vocabulary and reading instruction to the lessons will consume more of their time.
These schools both have class rooms where teachers and students meet for the sole purpose of formal interaction. There however can be problems where the teachers have to teach in and over crowded classroom. This is a problem because too many students mean that the teacher needs more time while teaching. There are always does that may not pick up on things as quickly as others; the larger number of pupils the higher the probability of such occurrences. Time is limited and so when a teacher spends time making sure that slow students understand what is being taught the rest of the class suffers academically.
