The opposite learning styles, involving listening and verbal skills, are more difficult for me. I would much rather learn how something works by using it than by listening to someone tell me how it works. When any of my teachers stand in front of the classroom and just reads form the text book. This type of teaching is my kryptonite, the words just pass right through me. To help me my learning process in class's like that i need to recreate the lectured material using my own visual tools and adapt my teacher's preferred teaching methods to my preferred learning styles.
Often, the display should be the representation of the children’s own work. However, posters, published materials or good quality photographs can be used when the children’s own work is not available. The display should always have a clear title, a year group label and should have a short explanation of the task / learning objective. In order to enhance and enrich the displays, all the labels could be printed by school staff or children using their computer skills. It is also important that the class teacher uses a range of questions to draw attention to the display and encourage interaction.
During the lesson, students can utilize graphic organizers to identify, organize and assimilate key concepts and related details. A graphic organizer encourages students to actively seek out important details and helps filter out the non-crucial information. Students are forced to focus in on the areas of information that are important and in the process of filling out the organizer students are then able to make important connections between details. It also provides an outline that organizes the lesson information into a logical pattern making even more sense of the content increasing the student’s comprehension. Another benefit of utilizing a graphic organizer during a lesson is that it gives the
Teacher should set out the learning objective clearly because for the level 1 pupils especially Year Two pupils, without a clearly and precise induction set, the objective of the lesson will not be fully achieved. Teacher then asked the pupils what they know about pottery and when this craft is used in their daily life. According to Lorin Anderson (2002), "When examining instructional activities, one must ask, “What is the pupils supposed to learn from his or her participation in this activity? What knowledge is to be acquired or constructed? What cognitive processes are to be employed?” That’s why teaching and learning process require intentional planning and flexibility.
In life we come across many teachers. Some we will hate and some we will adore. It is required to develop some type of relationship with the teacher to succeed in the class, especially for students who continue their education after high school. Experiencing many teachers in life, students will come across many teachers. In truth, there are three types of teachers: Informative, nonchalant and friendly.
Also, Children learn cooperation, leadership, and communication skills. As a teacher, it is important for every student to feel comfortable when engaging themselves in various activities. The main difference between the two stories are Goodwille portrays her book to anyone wanting overcome their fears of creative drama, whereas Cameron’s ideas are focused on teaching people about creative drama in a spiritual way. It is important for students and teachers to understand why we use creative drama in the classroom. Not only does it break through the adolescent barriers and builds a cooperative group, it helps their learning process tremendously.
To address a behavior issue I believe that first you must understand the behavior and more importantly understand what its causes are. Jacob Kounin talks about in preventing discipline problems, which have to do with the subject matter of the classroom. Kounin emphasizes that teachers should make instructional activities enjoyable and challenging for the students. I believe if the students are
Assisting carers in developing their own teaching skill is extremely important as the carers knowledge is then taught to the resident. In my organisation there is a constant training programme with numerous courses that all relate to supporting people with learning disabilities. It is obviously important that the carer is taught the mandatory courses such as first aid etc but it is also discussed and organised in group meetings which courses will benefit individual residents, for example if we have 10 residents who are all interested in art, then it is important that a carer/carers are put on a art course to enable residents to be taught/involved in more
Education Professionals view on creative learning is broadly understood to be characterised by * Questioning and challenging * Making connections and seeing relationships * Envisaging what may happen * Exploring ideas and keeping options open * Critically reflecting on ideas, actions and outcomes Creativity is about helping children to explore different ways to express themselves through a range of arts and crafts such as drawing, painting, sticking, making things, chalking, music and creative movement, dance and role play. Creativity consists of traditional creative arts and developing the imagination and imaginative play through various activities such as role play and small world play. Creativity involves exploring emotions and expressions thus the focus of creativity in this term is only partially about creating an end product and
Promoting Literacy and Comprehension The ways of traditional teaching are a thing of the past. In today’s classrooms teachers are working hard to find new and exciting ways to engage the students, promote learning, comprehension and writing. However, even with the stimulating activities and lessons students will continue to ask the same question, “Why do I have to learn this? When will this ever be a part of real life?” Teachers must be prepared to explain to their students exactly how math, reading, science, and history will all be a used outside of a classroom setting and in the real world. For example, teachers should shine light on how studying algebra actually develops stronger problem solving skills and leads students into a deeper level of thinking.
