• Allows teachers to focus on learning instead of discipline. • This takes away from teaching time because you are preparing rules and procedures. Kagan, Kyle, and Scott's "Win-Win Discipline" • It helps bring out the potential of the students even through disciplining them. • It is very clear for expectations that are passed to the students. • It stresses the importance of using the classroom to help the students overcome negative attitudes.
Encouragement is also important during all aspects of school life such as during lessons, their work, forming friendships and finding new things because this will help the children to try new things and to progress and move forward with their development and education. Secondary Schools- During this period of time in a child’s life it is important we do not intimidate or talk down to the child as this can really knock a child’s confidence, self esteem and could affect their professional relationship with the teaching assistant. Boundaries should be in place so children should know what is expected
• Don’t show any favouritism. 3.2.1 When developing a professional relationship with adults within a school it is important to: • Be polite and considerate and provide support to others. • Help teachers to prepare resources before class e.g. photocopying worksheets. • Help individuals who are unfamiliar with a classroom by showing them where resources are and give advice.
I then realized that the wall I had constructed to keep what I felt was wrong about my new environment away was simultaneously preventing the positive aspects from effecting me as well. At this point is when I regained my briefly lost self-assurance and knew that I was never any less competent than the best and the brightest at Jordan, but that I needed to study and apply myself (methods I had not always practiced so vigorously in the past). I opened my mind, and a true understanding for diversity found it’s way in. I understand now that regardless of the differences and even the similarities of a group of people should not justify the intolerance for one another. I also believe my experiences have enhanced my communication with those whose backgrounds, opinions, and/or lifestyles contrast with mine.
Analyse different ways in which you would establish ground rules with your learners, which underpin behaviour and respect for others. Ground rules are very important for the tutor to have within their classroom. With out the ground rules they will not be able to maintain order as this will give the students the ability to do whatever they like. When setting the ground rules it can be done by either the tutor or the students or both as this will give the students a sense of responsibility so therefore will less likely to break the rules. How the tutor should set the ground rules would be by putting the students into small groups or 1 large group and ask them to create a list of ground rules and them present this to the class and then rate
The results of these assessments are used to plan the support needed for individuals. This is essential for you as a tutor as you can plan future learning and assessment, and make sure you are not disadvantaging learners by placing them on courses that they are not able to achieve. Computerised Initial Assessments can provide mixed results, although it is explained that it is not a test, some students are obviously intimidated and find the whole process quite daunting. I have noticed this particularly in more mature learners as it is often assumed that people are now IT literate, and this might not be the case. Some student’s do not taking the process seriously, this is usually when they are with their peers and unfortunately this can skew the results.
Effective strategies and intervention are required to successfully change inappropriate behavior and foster appropriate behavior. Reinforcements are used to alter or eliminate undesirable behavior on the other hand, it is very important to encourage students to practice the desirable behavior to ensure that they are aware of what is expected from them. Teachers often spend valuable time correcting the inappropriate behavior and less time teaching acceptable behavior. As a teacher I think it is necessary and very important to assess and evaluate students
The difference between disequilibrium, and equilibrium and its impact in the classroom is as significant as Piaget suggests. If a student/person feels like they know how to solve a problem (or are at equilibrium), they will not want to learn about it. Although, if they are able to create a disequilibrium, or the inability to solve a problem by receiving constructive feedback and create competition, one will want to learn more about the subject/job and will hopefully retain a lot more information. An example of this can be seen in the classroom or workforce. There are many children in primary school who rely on their parents/peers to tie their shoes for them as they constantly have support in the area and have no motivation to learn themselves.
I believe that part on being culturally aware in the classroom teacher must build knowledge of what the student bring into the classroom. This concerns areas of the students’ life, students’ family, students’ community, and the students’ cultural background. In this we dive into a deeper level of commitment with our students giving them the message that we as teacher are not here just to be another authority figure, but we are here to be an understanding mentor that is aiding in the process of their growth. Doing so would call teachers to challenge their student on an individual level. With this challenge on the individual level, teachers should begin to learn the background of their students, with this new gained knowledge; know how to approach challenging each student in a different way that best suites the student.
My Philosophy of Classroom Management Classroom management is a term used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students. This term can also refer to the prevention of disruptive behavior. Many consider this as one of the most difficult tasks for new teachers. The basis for classroom management involves clear communication of both, the behavioral and academic expectations, as well a cooperative learning environment and proper time management. In order to successfully maintain proper order in the classroom, we must engulf a vast amount of actions, such as classroom climate, parental involvement, environment, student expectations, rewards and consequences, classroom procedures, and student motivation.
