I am a visual learner and visual learners are those who typically learn through what they are able to see with their own eyes (Fleming). Visual learning students like to keep an eye on the teacher by sitting in the front of the class and watching the lecture closely. Visual learners have a tendency to describe everything that they see in terms of appearances. These learners love visual aids such as photos, diagrams, maps and graphs. Visual learners frequently are good writers and will commonly perform quite well on written assignments ( Ldpride.net, 2008).
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.
A successful teacher of beginning readers develop comprehension skills and helps to expose them to wide range of texts to build background knowledge. (Professional Development) In teaching reading a teacher must also teach many skills from decoding to vocabulary. Most importantly, a good reading teacher generates excitement and appreciation for reading. Learning to read is a hierarchical process, each skill building upon another. For example, learning to decode followed by fluency is the first step followed by independent reading, reading with absorption, and ending with critical reading.
They learn better by having things written down in a handout versus someone telling them how to do it. Being told how to do something instead of taking the time to show a visual learner through diagrams or pictures just causes confusion. Visual learners also perform better in class when the teacher writes assignments on the whiteboard and provide them with handouts. List of Preferred Learning Strategies A visual learner preferred learning strategies is through reading textbook, watching
In the essay my true love is reading the author explains her love for reading and the benefits of it in one’s life. She feels that “apart from studies, reading has laid a path for her self improvement and also helped her in stress relieving”. The author says that “Never underestimate the usefulness of reading. Even when I read to pass time, it is never time waste”(R. Afriye, 2008, p.54). By this she wants to say that reading is the thing we do as a hobby for passing our time, but unknowingly it is very useful and gives us so much knowledge about anything in very less time.
Background For background information, I am studying teaching in order that I can have an understanding of how my students are learning, and some experience of teaching, so that when I come to assess them for their NVQs I appreciate how they got to the point of submitting their workbooks to me. Roles, responsibilities and boundaries The simple way of describing my role as a teacher would be to say that I am there to ensure my learners get their qualifications (Wilson 2008:4), but the Lifelong Learning Sector covers more than just formal qualifications; many people just want to learn for the enjoyment of doing so, or an employer may have set up an internal training course without a nationally recognised qualification at the end. Learners could be aged 14 upwards and have many different learning goals. As a teacher I will do more than just deliver the lesson. I will have had to design the lesson and plan its delivery so that it holds everyone’s interest.
This will involve time management, reading the right learning materials, putting efforts in studies as well as knowing what teachers expect from you. In studying for this module, I was able to read the necessary and core reading books, by reading through the module guides and reflecting back on each lectures. Cottrell (2003) outlined that reflecting is a natural practice, where we reflect back on an event that we were inspired or uninspired by.
This started my brains to think this is going to be an awesome activity. • A detailed description of the audiences that will be taught this lesson Building on students’ existing knowledge of plot structure and of cycles in other content areas, this lesson invites students to use a circle plot graphic organizer to explore the structure of this type of story. The cyclical nature of the stories is an excellent match for discussion of prediction and sequencing skills. After exploring the features of circular plot stories in this activity, students write their own stories individually or in small groups. “Since prediction is an important strategy used in the reading process, the teacher can demonstrate this strategy by stopping at significant points [in the story] and asking, ‘what do you think will happen next?
If a person learns more on the intuitive side then the person may miss important details or make careless mistakes in calculations and hands on work (Blanchard and Thacker, 2010). If a person learns more on the sensing side the then person tend to rely too much on remembering and familiar methods and not concentrate enough on understanding and innovative thinking (Blanchard and Thacker, 2010). Sensor learners are more visual learners which mean they have to see how it relates to the real world. Intuitive learners are does not learn from memorization. In fact if you were trying to train a intuitive learner based on memorization, you will not be successful.
It represents a cluster of personality and mental characteristics that influence how a pupil perceives, remembers, thinks, and solves problems,” (Morrison, 2006:186). ELT practitioners must realize that there are many different learning styles, as well as personality types within the classroom and being assertive on identifying our students’ needs and developmental areas according to their learning preferences will lead them to acquire knowledge in a more natural way. For this assignment, I will describe and evaluate the differences in learners response to the activities developed in a regular grammar lesson based on their motivation, age and learning styles. I will also talk about the strategies that I will use to evaluate that learner’s progress has taken place and consider ways in which the quality of learning can be improved. II.
