Having attended Mr. Ebrahim’s presentation I have learnt that as teachers you will need to be improvise as lessons will not always go as planned. I will also need to be flexible in the sense that I will need to play different roles when I become a teacher eg: a nurse if a learner gets hurt. Mr. Ebrahim has been a teacher for 27 years so far n I have learnt that you will only get to know how to teach and handle your students through experience, so get to know who your students are and what their problems are this will help you decide how to approach them also get them to participate in the lessons gain the students trust n respect and in return they will respect you. Often it is the students with the behavior problem that have domestic and or personal issues so try and unpack and get them to talk about it and you might see a big change in them instead of shouting at them or sending them to detention. Mr. Ebrahim also mentioned that you should always be prepared for the lessons as students will notice that u are unprepared and take advantage.

These are a few of my strengths I am good at listening, working alone, getting tasks done, reliable, determined to achieve goals, like to be prepared. I really like structure and being organized.
Gaining more confidence is a change and learning to project my voice.
I think I have these strengths because I am now 26 years old I have studied before and worked for 4 years that I know who I am and what I want. I am now more driven to achieve my goals and have a better understanding of life and what is important.
As to the challenges for the future my mother was very strict on discipline. I ended being a bit shy and never speaking out of turn or being loud.

...Upon completing the Teaching Prospective Inventory (TPI) questionnaire the result gave me an interesting insight to views as a future educator. The results were as followed: Transmission (31), Apprenticeship (39), Developmental (40), Nurturing (33), and Social Reform (34). The results on the profile sheet are quite consistent with how I view myself as a person. My high overall scores in the developmental and apprenticeship make perfect sense due to my own development in education. As a mentor, student, and an athlete I have learned to understand the fundamentals of learning skills and truly comprehend them in order to use them effectively and pass the on the same skills along to others. I was in fact a bit surprised by my nurturing and social reform scores. I received a lower score in nurturing than I would have estimated, yet a higher score in social reform than I imagined. I figured I would have score higher in nurturing since I have 4 years of experience in the K-12 system, but when I received a higher social reform score it made sense. I spent a lot of time explaining to the children about what and why society needs them to be good people. Overall I feel the scores are truly reflective on the way I have learned and will teach children. I expectations for my student will be for them to understand the critical skills needed to be successful in their educational and future professional careers. I would also expect them comprehend the role education will play in their......

..., district level seminars, and material preparation, and I believe you make approximately 19 cents an hour.   And then people say, yeah but teachers get three months off for summer, and then we all clutch our guts and die laughing because WHATEVER, MAN. Like teachers leave on the last day of school and just show up on the first with a miraculously prepared classroom and a month’s worth of lesson plans. But seriously, thanks for the laugh. The amount of work and energy you pour into your work and our children is so astonishing, it is a crime that you don’t all make 150K a year. Since you couldn’t possibly do it for the money, we can only assume you love your job and love our kids. Can you understand how much we appreciate you?   You are doing far more than teaching our kids the building blocks of knowledge and learning; you are helping us raise our children. You provide a second environment in which they have to practice respect, obedience, teamwork, diligence. We tell them take initiative on your work and they are like this house is a drag, and then they come home from school and say I’m starting this project early because Mrs. Pulis says to take initiative, and we wonder if you have magic powers or if our children are just willfully obtuse. The answer is…yes.   That high standard you set for our kids? We freaking love it. Thank you. Thank you for insisting on kindness and respect, excellence and persistence. Thank you for sometimes saying, “This is junky work and......

... ability to bond with students is a crucial component of teaching because it encourages students to be more studious. Second, the teacher will also be able to teach students efficiently if he or she can relate to each student. To be specific, the teacher can adapt different teaching styles to each student accordingly if he or she knows each student well. I would like to talk about my personal experiences to illustrate this. When I first entered middle school in Korea, I had trouble understanding math concepts quickly. Fortunately, the teacher knew enough about my strengths and weaknesses that she noticed that I was struggling with comprehension. After school was over, the teacher volunteered to explain the concepts again slowly, and I was finally able to understand the concepts. Likewise, a teacher can better help out students learn if he or she is aware of each student’s tendencies and personalities....

...A PAPER ON A SAMPLE OF COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH by Laelatul Mawadah 1301068385 I. THEORITICAL BACKGROUND Communicative language teaching (CLT) emphasizes interaction and problem solving as both the means and the ultimate goal of learning English or any language. As such, it tends to emphasize activities such as role play, pair work and group work. It switched traditional language teaching's emphasis on grammar, and the teacher-centered classroom, to that of the active use of authentic language in learning and acquisition. CLT is interested in giving students the skills to be able to communicate under various circumstances. As such, it places less emphasis on the learning of specific grammatical rules and more on obtaining native-speaker-like fluency and pronunciation. Students are assessed on their level of communicative competence rather than on their explicit knowledge. It is more of an approach or philosophy than a highly structured methodology. David Nunan famously listed five key elements to the communicative approach: 1. An emphasis on learning to communicate through interaction in the target language. 2. The introduction of authentic texts into the learning situation. 3. The provision of opportunities for learners to focus, not only on the language but also on the learning process itself. 4. An enhancement of the learner's own personal experiences as important contributing elements to classroom learning. 5. An attempt to link classroom...

...Although there are many things that characterize me as a new teacher, my teaching philosophy is based on a fundamentally optimistic view. I’m currently volunteering at the African Center. I teach basics English to refugees. I believe that all of my students, with the help of the right tools, will be able to overcome any difficulties that the study of a foreign language might present. I don't mean that every student who enters my class will be able to express him or herself equally simply as a result of how I present the lesson, but rather that each of my students will be guaranteed the opportunity to express him or herself to the best of his or her abilities. I believe that one of my best qualities as a new teacher is my ability to inspire confidence in my students so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves regardless of their level of ability. In my language classes, students are required to speak in English at all times: this is not always easy for those who are having their first encounter with this method of foreign language instruction. The first step, then, is to put the student at ease in such a way that even the most timid student is able to make the most of his or her time in the classroom. In my teaching evaluations, many students refer to the type of atmosphere that a language class should have, and to how the learning environment in my classroom allowed them to express themselves: "He created such an amazing class environment; no one was ever afraid...

...Teaching is often called the major factor in the society’s development. It is well known that there exist three main factors that influence the development of the personality. They are: heredity, social encirclement and education. Good and Bad Teachers Essay Parents usually use the term of education meaning to make great impact on the future personality of their children. Nowadays, when parents are very busy, teachers are the people who teach children what is right and what is wrong. Children learn to perceive the inner world through the teachers. And the way they perceive it depends on the teacher’s personal particularities that are transmitted to children through interaction and the knowledge that the teacher offers them. Therefore there is much more to a teacher than high professionalism. High professionalism in the field of the taught subject is very important, but when it comes to being a bad or a good teacher this is not main factor. A good teacher is a person who not just reproduces the knowledge he got or that brings up the interest to the subject. It is a person who finds individual approach to every student, taking care about the child’s adaptation in class, increasing one’s social status in class and making sure the children learn to take into account and respect the thoughts of other people. It is a man or a woman that can not “play” the teacher’s role but he in the first place “ a feeling human being” in front of the students, a person that can show emotional...

Online Teaching

...Online teaching provides students the opportunity to interact in learning environments by engaging in thoughtfully designed hands-on learning activities, collaborating with their peers at different levels, participating in online learning communities, and creating their own personal learning environments that help them build lifelong learning skills. Teaching online requires more time and effort than a face-to-face course because of the amount of work involved in creating a high quality learner-centered product; investing a considerable amount of time designing the course and provide pedagogical, enhancing collaboration, fostering reflection exploring new pedagogical approaches with the capabilities of different technology platforms. This class presented a framework for constructing innovative, learner-centered, online learning environments. It explored the ways to transform existing pedagogies to the online environment, and enabled the exploration and discovery of new pedagogical approaches, and encouraging participatory, collaborative, and engaging inquiry-based and social learning practices. Online teachers are key participants in successful online learning and in designing and structuring an online course. Through integrating technology into the pedagogical mix, teachers must examine the pedagogical potential of online technologies in constructing online learning experiences within their content areas. The course design processes showed variety depending on whether...

Teaching Methods

...Teaching method From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A teaching method comprises the principles and methods used for instruction to be implemented by teachers to achieve the desired learning in students. These strategies are determined partly on subject matter to be taught and partly by the nature of the learner. For a particular teaching method to be appropriate and efficient it has to be in relation with the characteristic of the learner and the type of learning it is supposed to bring about. Davis (1997) suggests that the design and selection of teaching methods must take into account not only the nature of the subject matter but also how students learn.[1] In today’s school the trend is that it encourages a lot of creativity. It is a known fact that human advancement comes through reasoning. This reasoning and original thought enhances creativity. The approaches for teaching can be broadly classified into teacher centered and student centered. In Teacher-Centered Approach to Learning, Teachers are the main authority figure in this model. Students are viewed as “empty vessels” whose primary role is to passively receive information (via lectures and direct instruction) with an end goal of testing and assessment. It is the primary role of teachers to pass knowledge and information onto their students. In this model, teaching and assessment are viewed as two separate entities. Student learning is measured through objectively scored tests and assessments.[2] In Student...

...LESSON 1 1. Which of the instructional materials enumerated in this lesson do you often use? Are there categories you have not tried? Why? Materials often used: A. Printed and Duplicated Materials I do use a lot of printed materials in teaching my pupils. I do find that my pupils do better when we are making use of the board but I do need an evidence to show how the pupil is doing to their parent or guardian and that is by means of printed materials. B. Non-Projected Display Materials I handle kids with different needs; one for example is that I have pupils with Autism. Those who are on the spectrum learn best with visual materials that is why the center that I’m in has a lot of instructional materials to choose from. C. Cine and Video Materials Most of the cases we have in the center are children with communication problem, from speech to language disorder. The use of videos is a good help in exercising their communication. With the catchy tune and the colorful or even funny images it’s with, it surely helps maintain my pupil’s attention. D. Computer-mediated Materials I do make use of the different computer program. I am thankful that there are lot of computer programs that I can download for free, from application to help mu pupils learn facial expression, to learning colors, shapes and alphabets to learning good attitudes. Materials that I haven’t tried: A. Still Projected Display Materials Most of the kids that I’m handling are...

...Teachers and Faith Jennifer Rawls Liberty University Teachers and Faith Teachers and Faith was written by Jonathan Eckert. Jonathan Eckert is a faith-based liberal arts teacher who believes that there is a place for teachers of faith in public schools. According to the author, teaching is not just a skill or a day of rigid routines. However, it is about knowledge and developing the child as a whole. Teachers help children learn their place in the world and how to interact in social environments. They have high expectations for their students because they know that Christ created them. Faith influences a teacher’s character; therefore, the teachers show love, joy, and integrity in their work. In this article the author gives a few accounts of teachers that were called to serve in different geographical locations and in different situations. In each situation they served their students with joy and love, furthermore, sharing their faith through actions. I agree with the author’s stance on respecting the legal and ethical boundaries when it comes to religion and public schools. There are many different cultures and beliefs in our schools. Therefore, families trust that teachers will not teach or thrust a set of beliefs they deem as the correct beliefs on their children (Eckert, 2014, p. 21). There are many ways I can show the Gospel of Christ’s love through myself without ever having to argue or preach to someone. One way is to practice godly character by being...

... the Italian Renaissance, but on future generations of Western art. The painting shows nude young woman, reclining on a bed in the luxurious surroundings. The painting represents the allegory of marriage and was a “teaching” model to Guilia Varano, the young wife of eroticism, fidelity and motherhood. The evident eroticism of the painting, in fact, reminded the women of the marital obligations she would have to fulfill to her husband. The erotic allegory is evident in the representation of Venus, the goddess of love, as a sensual and delectable woman staring at the viewer who could not ignore her beauty. The light and warm color of her body is in contrast to the dark background, bringing out her eroticism. The dog at the feet of the woman is the symbol of marital fidelity while, in the background, the house maid looking down at the young girl as she rummages in the chest symbolizes motherhood. The strong sensuality of the painting was therefore consistent with its private and domestic purpose, as a gift from husband to wife. The Venus of Urbino has so many artistic devices: the play of light on the girl’s body and Titian’s delicate chiaroscuro lends a sculptural quality to the nude and also intensifies the silk drapery of the bed and the tiles of the floor provide further linear perspective. It was certainly not common for pictures of an explicitly erotic nature to be commissioned to celebrate a wedding, although they would be intended for private viewing only. Titian...
