Danielle Gallagher Unit 303 Support learning activities Outcome 1 Contribute to planning learning activities 1.1 Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities Although the class teacher is primarily responsible to plan, deliver and review all learning activities for the class, a teaching assistant can work alongside the teacher and make contributions that can improve the teachers plan, alter the delivery to make it more effective for pupil attainment and extend the teachers initial review. “Planning, teaching and evaluation follow a cycle which gives structure to the learning process” and is vital in my role as a teaching assistant. I aim to describe how I aide the teacher to plan and deliver lessons and how I give feedback to the teacher about individual pupils, in order for the teacher make improvements in her planning and to be able to target individual children that are struggling. I will also give an example at the end to show how I effectively assisted in planning, delivery and the review of a lesson. Planning - the teacher will ask her staff to look over her planning and to give an opinion on it, if the staff feel there could be any improvements then they will tell the teacher.
Additionally, assessments assist teachers in providing better service and support to build upon the children’s strengths and weaknesses through all developmental domains. With the use of assessments and records, teachers keep track of each individual child’s growth, goal accomplishments, and learning. In addition, as a teaching tool, assessments aid educators abilities to support and guide the children’s learning through designing appropriate learning environments, planning curriculum, and successful learning
Formative Assessment · Formative assessments are used to com pile an overall picture of a child on their strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement in any given curriculum area. This can also apply outside the curriculum area. · These types of assessment are done on a daily basis by both the TA and teacher. · Formative assessment are used by the TA in areas such as FLS, Springboard to assess what the child already knows and what areas the child needs to know and most cases the best possible way of teaching this.

h. To create an effective IEP, parents, teachers, other school staff--and often the student--must come together to look closely at the student's unique needs. These individuals pool knowledge, experience and commitment to design an educational program that will help the student be involved in, and progress in, the general curriculum. The IEP guides the delivery of special education supports and services for the student with a disability. Without a doubt, writing--and implementing--an effective IEP requires teamwork. 6.
SENCOs must also collaborate with curriculum co-ordinators at the school to make sure that the learning requirements of all children with SEN are given equal emphasis and priority. At both the School Action and the School Action Plus stages, a SENCO will work with the teacher to consider the child’s needs, and will take the lead role in getting further assessment of a child where necessary, by contacting the LEA.

Keeping records is a very important reflexive tool for both teachers and learners in the educational setting. Accurate records taken throughout a course enables both teacher and students to continually reassess the effectiveness of the teaching/learning relationship by giving an ongoing measure against which to view learning objectives. Records indicate whether pupils have learnt what has been taught and are making sufficient progress with the course; who needs more help or is ready for more extensive work by assessing better or worse progress than expected; and whether teachers need to refine any aspects of their teaching by assessing successes or shortcomings where teaching needs to be strengthened. Attendance data taken on a close protection course gives an idea of where students may fall behind with learning outcomes through non attendance. Identifying non attendance could indicate a problem external to the teaching setting which may benefit from referral to other professionals or could point to students’ dissatisfaction with the teaching style which could be addressed by reassessing the teaching methods used in order to promote more inclusive practice.
