Inclusive learning should promote positive behaviour and conduct. A teacher needs to recognise that learner comes with different learning styles and needs. Maslow stated unless certain need are met the learner cannot progress. Malsow ‘s hierarchy of needs theory is: Learners needs have to to be met in order for leaners to be involved and focused on their learning. 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.
The teacher’s role is to promote learning using the children’s interests to develop the curriculum. This means the teacher is not actually teaching the class or leading the class like most teachers. The teacher is promoting the specific learning skills that they want the children to learn but allowing them to run the classroom while giving them guidance. Every child has different ways of learning and a style in which they like to learn. The teacher must ensure they are reaching all of these different types of learning styles.
Different people adjust to different strategies. Most people adjust to more than one strategy. We just need to identify which ones through assessment. How the Awareness of Learning Strategies Influence Teaching and Learning It is important for teachers to understand what a student is going through in their process of learning new information. If you know the learning style of the student, it is easier to convey the message you are trying to convey.
Supporting learning activities. TDA 2.10 1, 1.1 Planning helps structure teaching and learning. It enables us to look at what pupils have achieved so that they can progress to the next stage. Planning, Teaching and Evaluation form a cycle which should be followed and it is important to be aware of medium or long term plans for the class to ensure that any learning resources that may be needed are accessible. Through planning in advance you will be able to make preparations for the lesson and discuss any issues you may have or not understand with the teacher.
Appropriate Behavior Expectations Case Study Cindy Dean Instructor: Kristen Jaquez June 1, 2014 Appropriate Behavior Expectations Case Study There are some teachers that have special prospects for their students. One example is to follow directions in the classroom or anywhere. A teacher may tell a student to take a seat or even get in line; it is predictable for them to follow the rules. A teacher should not ever place hard problematic situations on their students, especially young children. You really cannot imagine children who range the age of seven thru eight to grasp the information as teenagers can do.
This is so the practitioner can act on the advice and put it onto the planning. This advice can have more experience in different aspects of the child’s life. This then helps with the care and learning needs of all children as if the child has a disability which affects their learning. The teacher will have to get another professional in that knows what they are doing to help care for the child and help with the child’s learning. This means that the child will be getting a full learning experience and understand the lesson because it is easier for them.
Wayson also spoke about teacher student relations and how to open your classroom for more effective learning. He talked about not embarrassing a student, but in turn seeking alternate ways of getting your message across. This is something that we have touched on throughout the course, but something I feel to be very important. I think its imperative that as teachers we think about what our actions have the power to do. At the elementary level, we are shaping how students feel about themselves which can affect them the rest of their lives.
An educator should constantly be revising lesson plans and expanding their own knowledge in order to deliver an optimal learning experience for the students. Incorporating guidelines to educate students without bias into a code of ethics ensures that students receive equal treatment in the classroom. An educator’s primary concern should be the physical and mental well being of the student. This being said, it is the responsibility of the educator to be vigilant of a student’s physical and emotional behavior while in the classroom. Child abuse is a dilemma that may be encountered when working as a professional educator in the school system.
Students must feel safe and secure in their class in order to learn and grow in education. In order to control these types of behaviors the teacher must first recognize the misbehavior and handle it in a professional manner from the onset. Students learn from example as much as from example. Teacher set the example. They can do this by putting a stop to the disruption and using it as a learning experience for all the other students.
In the story of “My Life is Average” by Mike Rose, he talks about how kids and people at a young age will only strive to a goal that you set. This talks about the relationship between a teacher and a student; it is the teacher’s job to make sure the students can comprehend the lesson they are teaching, but I also think it is the student’s job to be able to take all of the information in and retain it. Teachers need to be aware if their students are struggling with their education, while students need to stay motivated. What I perceive Rose is trying to say is that teachers need to keep high standards because they are responsible for the students that depend on it. I believe this to be relevant in every single person’s life.
