Explain how a learning support practitioner may contribute to the planning, delivery and review of learning activities for the following areas : * literacy skills * numeracy skills * ICT skills * problem solving skills A learning support practitioner will contribute to the planning of an activity by firstly gaining a clear understanding of what the learning objective is and what the teacher wants the child to achieve from the activity. The practitioner will then find out the ability of the pupils they are working with and if they require any extra or specialist help , this then helps the practitioner provide the correct materials and equipment they need for the activity. A learning support practitioner would also contribute to planning as they will identify if pupils they are working with are likely to finish early and so can arrange with the teacher and additional sheets these children may need. An important part of planning would be for the practitioner to be aware of how much time they have to do the activity and can plan the activity to suit. A learning support practitioner will also be required to provide the teacher with feedback of the activity and the child's performance , so the practitioners should arrange with the teacher beforehand how they should be providing the feedback.
Unit 001: Essay on the Roles, responsibilities and relationships in lifelong learning. This is an analysis of roles, responsibilities and relationships in Lifelong Learning; by defining them in the context of teaching, and explaining the importance of promoting appropriate behaviour in the classroom. I will explore teachers responsibilities for identifying and meeting the needs of learners by encouraging and enabling all learners to reach their full potential; roles and responsibilities in promoting equality and diversity; relationships between teachers and other professionals, identifying boundaries and reviewing points of referral to appropriate support persons/agencies to meet the needs of learners; responsibilities for establishing and maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment; and compliance with key aspects of legislation and codes of practice relating to the role of teachers. There are numerous roles and responsibilities are numerous that teachers will undertake daily. According to Wilson (2009), roles describe functions of teachers.
The Code of Practice suggests that children and young people and young people who are described as requiring School Action or School Action Plus provision or have a Statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) should have an Individual Education Plan (IEP). • An IEP is a tool to help plan for meeting the SEN of children and young people/young people and to help in teaching them effectively the emphasis is placed on the involvement of parents/carers and children and young people/young people. The Code of Practice identifies the information an IEP should contain: o The short term targets set for or by the children and young people and young people o The teaching strategies to be used o The provision to be put in place o When the plan is to be reviewed o Success and/or exit criteria o Outcomes (to be recorded when the IEP is reviewed) • IEPs should focus on: o Up to three or four key individual targets set to help meet the Individual children and young people and young people needs and particular priorities. Targets set in IEPs will largely relate to curriculum objectives: communication, literacy, mathematics, and all aspects of behaviour or physical skills. Targets can be set to meet more holistic objectives, such as the development of independence skills.
Assignment title: Part A, Research the teacher’s role in developing planning, teaching and assessment methods. Within schools, there are a number of issues with planning and assessment, initially ‘the planning and assessment has to affect the progress of the child positively and also has to be personalised between pupil and teacher,’ (Bottle, 2005; 87). In this paper the role of the teacher shall be assessed, as to their contribution in developing more pragmatic planning. The methods of teaching shall also be considered and how they impact on the educational development of planning and the children’s development. Particular reference will be paid to the assessment methods that are used in conjunction with planning and how they are implemented by the teacher.
PROCEDURES USED IN FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT Formative assessment includes a variety of procedures such as observation, feedback, and journaling. However, there are some general principles that constitute effective formative assessment. Key requirements for successful formative assessment include the use of quality assessment tools and the subsequent use of the information derived from these assessments to improve instruction. The defining characteristic of formative assessment is its interactive or cyclical nature (Sadler, 1988). At the classroom level, for example, teachers collect information about a student's learning, make corresponding adjustments in their instruction, and continue to collect information.
Question 1: Give examples of how you would plan activities. I would plan activities by: Following the agreed plan (e.g. curriculum/lesson/activity /Individual Education Plans or Individual Behaviour Plan) Identifying individual learning needs-type & level of support needed Specify intended learning outcomes for the pupils-the objectives of the learning activity Prepare for the learning activity-research topic Select resources for the learning activity Identify staff roles-the teaching assistant’s contribution to the learning activity Implement the learning activity-using the specific strategies for supporting the learning activity Observe & record pupils’ responses including achievements/difficulties Evaluate the learning activity Identify future learning needs Question 2: Describe your role in delivering learning activities. My role in delivering learning activities is: Preparing the learning environment to meet the individual learning needs of each pupil in the class Provide appropriate learning activities for individuals & groups of pupils Selecting & using appropriate learning materials Supervising an individual or group of pupils Maintain pupil safety during the learning activity Interacting with the pupils in ways that focus their attention on the learning potential of the learning materials, e.g. asking questions such as ‘what happens if you do....?’ Using praise & encouragement to help pupils participate fully in the learning Observing pupil responses during the learning activity Question 3: Make a list of things expected of you as part of your role in supporting an individual pupil or group of pupils.
It is used to help students with diverse needs learn using a core curriculum. Based on the readiness of students, there are three strategies for successfully implementing differentiated instruction. Regardless of their individual differences, students are expected to master the same concepts, principles, and skills. First, is the “content” of lessons it may be differentiated based on what students already know. The teacher may differentiate the content by designing activities for groups of students that address different areas of knowledge, understanding, and skills.
Baseline data helps the teacher decide how far the child is from where he or she should be. It also helps the teacher to develop objectives and instructional plans. Determining Effectiveness of Instruction Another critical aspect of monitoring behavior is to assess the effectiveness of the program. Keeping track of the student's behavior helps the teacher make decisions about when instructional changes are needed to help the child make progress on his or her individualized objectives. Communicating About a Child's Progress Monitoring student's progress on objectives facilitates communication in the classroom, with parents, and with students.
