Unit LD 302 Support person-centred thinking and planning 1.1 - Explain what person-centred thinking is, and how it relates to person-centred reviews and person-centred planning. Person centred thinking is a set of values, skills and tools that can be used in person centred planning. It is the foundation in doing the plan to make it works. A person must have a set values or a thought that the centre of the plan is the owner of the plan and everything in it is for its benefits. 1.2 - Explain the benefits of using person-centred thinking with individuals.
That is when I realized that he wasn’t necessarily a “bad” student he was just a young child who needed motivation and someone who would just care. That is the meaning that I found within Dr. Michaels statement. How does a classroom teacher garner respect? There are many methods that a teacher can use in order to gain their students respect. For example, the most effective method would be, to respect the students and their feelings before they can respect you.
Once I get feedback, I keep the same general idea, but I go deeper and make it better by adding more details and better word choice. One problem I have that can be closely related to being an extravert is I typically have too many ideas and have trouble choosing what to write. My ideas are there and when it comes time to write it seems to vanish. Being an extravert has its advantages and I guess is better than being an introvert, sorry to you introverts. My second personality coding according to Myers-Briggs is S, or sensing.
‘Explain the ways you would establish ground rules with your learners which would underpin behaviour and respect for others.’ Setting ground rules within a group establishes what the tutor and the group can expect from each other in terms of social as well as educational expectations. An understanding of why each rule is in place will ensure learners and tutor feel more comfortable about its existence and helps to provide a good learning environment for all in the group. The delivery of these rules can be important when teaching adults as some learners’ feel more at ease having set rules or boundaries whereas others whose negative experiences of their schooling may feel an unconscious resentment. Rather than imposing a stated list of rules or laying down the law, asking for opinions and experiences, then drawing from that any expectations of the group can be a mutually beneficial way of establishing what ground rules should be made and more importantly why they are important or relevant to the group. This method is also a good way to encourage the exchange of ideas and opinions within the group as learners are more likely to relate to each other, discuss, and help each other further on in the course.
They are identified in a person but aren’t really the person’s number one choice. The preferred strategies are the strategies that help the person learn and cope to their needs. Identified strategies are there and also help but the person would prefer the other strategies over them. As discussed earlier, kinesthetic strategies embody actively engaging into the lesson. On the contrary, aural study strategies engage “attending classes, discussions, and tutorials, discussing topics with others and teachers, and using a tape recorder.” People who are good listeners and learn better by hearing have aural strategies.
Unit one also taught me to reevaluate how important certain priorities when it came to writing. I learned from the other unit one authors, Joseph M. Williams and James E. Porter, that when an essay is read by someone who is looking for grammatical error or plagiarism instead of content, they will often find the error and ignore the content. Although I do still know the importance of grammar and originality, this class and the grading style has let me put those constructs in the back seat until the editing process, instead of making them something I had to constantly worry about. I don’t believe that good writing revolves around grammar, but rather how well your words can convey a message to the intended audiences.
I can learn about information that is trying to be taught by using hands-on problem-solving. I am improving my ability to be become a thinker by finding time to reflect independently on new information and looking for opportunities to work independently. I try to be sensitive to individuals’ feelings by giving positive feedback. I present constructive criticism in a way that I hope others would not take offense to. Knowing others strengths in an online learning environment helps me understand how they think.
'Questioning enables teachers to check learners' understanding. It also benefits learners as it encourages enitgagement and focuses their thinking on key concepts and ideas.' (Kyriacou 1995 in Desforges 1995, pg. 126) I am of the opinion that the idea children should work in mixed ability groups is not always a viable option. I feel it is important to take into account the personalities of the children, as learning may be inhibited if one child is particularly domineering or intimidating.
It identifies any weaknesses in a student’s knowledge such as gaps and misconceptions the teacher would normally fail to notice. It will allow the teacher the ability to modify any lessons surrounding these misconceptions. It is very similar to a formative assessment since it allows the teacher to check on the student's progress and understanding. Through these interviews, the teacher can reduce misconceptions in the lessons and promote understanding of the curriculum which will help the student in their following academic
My Learning Style Essay The reason for doing this essay is to try and discover which is my best and worst way to learn and then to come up with a strategy for improving my ability to learn. The first thing that I need to do is research what different learning styles there is, after I have done this I can determine what are my preferred learning styles. I have always thought I learned better when I took a hands-on approach. This type of learning is called Physical (kinesthetic). After taking a short questionnaire, I also found that I prefer to learn with visual aids, such as pictures and graphs.
