Respond thoughtfully to diverse perspectives, summarize points of agreement and disagreement, and, when warranted, qualify or justify their own views and understanding and make new connections in light of the evidence and reasoning presented.
What seems the most important? Creating a learning environment for students with exceptional learning needs requires a lot of modeling, encouragement, modification, praise, and reflection on what is working and what is not working.
I have found that some students need to know what they are working for, and it may not be the educational value piece we as adults are so often proud of. Each student, however, is motivated by something, and when that is identified and worked towards, progress may happen.
A learning environment can be really impacted in a negative way if philosophies of adults in the room clash, creating inconsistencies in outcomes.
Often our thinking about a situation needs to change in order for student behavior or results to change. I have found I learn best, when I know what is expected of me, and I know why I am doing a task. How have your perceptions of learning and teaching changed over the year?
By experiencing a different classroom, and student with more mild disabilities than I was used to, I realized anew that there is not "one right model" for setting up and running a classroom.
I have also Reflection seminar that the culture of any given Reflection seminar can be rigid, or it can be flexible. I believe the flexible model works the best for my teaching style. Also, I realized that good teachers surround themselves with people to draw from when they they do not know the answer to something, or need an opinion.
They are part of a team, and that team is crucial. What are your strengths as a teacher? I enjoy observing behavior. I people watch, and then I think about why they just behaved the way they did.
What preceded the behavior? Was the behavior reinforced in some way? In the classroom this is a strength when considering learning and behavior, as reflecting on events can lead to change.
I have an ability to scaffold curricula in order to target individual learning goals, and can differentiate instruction in a group setting to meet the different needs of the learners in the group. I am a calm person. This is great in the classroom when anxiety can often run high, adn unpredictable circumstances appear or rush up on you throughout the day.
I am a positive person with a strength in persistence. I like to reach the goals I have set for myself. I am keenly aware of my limitations, while at the same time enjoy the challenges of new responsibilities and journeys.
Give at least three ways you want to improve as a teacher and share how you plan to do that.
In order to further expand my cultural awareness and support my goal of expanding instructional techniques, I would like to become more fluent in sign language. I plan to achieve this by taking a class at a local community college in the next twelve months.
I would like the opportunity to further develop my skills in leading other adults, be it para-professionals, colleagues, or volunteers, through the sharing of information and giving guidance and direction. This will happen when I assume the role of classroom teacher, but until then I can share articles and books with others who may benefit from the information, and continue to advocate for students with exceptional learning needs both in and out of school settings.
I have an ongoing goal of becoming a better time manager. I really want to work "smarter". Efficiency with my time is crucial for reaching goals in a timely manner, and keeping stress levels down for a balanced life.
To work toward this goal I plan to read books on the topic and continue with reflections. Share a story that illustrates your insight about teaching students along the continuum mild, moderate, sever.5.
Share a story that illustrates your insight about teaching students along the continuum (mild, moderate, sever). Are you more confident? While student teaching this year I had a student in my class who was described to me as non-verbal. Reflection on my seminar ANAND 1.
