My prior educational experience was in a public school. Elementary school went kindergarten through sixth grade, which I attended one school the whole seven years. Then you moved to the middle school which was seventh and eight, but it was connected to the high school which was ninth through twelfth. Also i attended a vocational school for child care my eleventh and twelfth grade year. After graduation I attended Edinboro University for one semester before transferring to Slippery Rock. Attending the schools that I did, it helped me realize I want to teach young children rather than older children based off of what I learned in child care. As a educator I will be open to different children's needs much like most of my teachers were throughout my school life. My parents views on school were grades came before sports and work. They were always hard on me about my grades and attendance, but this was because neither of them graduated. Going to college was a decision they left up to me but they strongly recommended it. Since I'm going to school for early childhood education I believe I will have a classroom that gives a child lots of room to explore new things. I will have stations set up for the children and teach in a variety of ways to help the children learn. I believe when teaching you should teach the material in a variety of ways. While some children learn visually, some may need to learn by doing that particular thing hands on. All children learn differently. Me for example, I learn better with hands on materials. When teaching the children the rules of the classroom I believe you should use a reward/disciplinary approach. What I used when I taught preschool was a stop light. If you went to yellow that was your warning, if you were but on red you would lose play time/recess. If the child was on green all week (they didn't get a warning or lose recess) they were given a choice of a prize from the prize box. This worked for the classroom I worked in because it was always a surprise on what would be in the box that week. We would always use something different, pencils, stickers, candy, little toys from fast food places etc. The physical environment of a classroom can have different effects on the behaviors of children. For example if there are a lot of distractions in the classroom the children may not pay attention to what's being taught. Also the setup of the classroom can also affect a child learning. Personally I would like to have circle tables do children can work in groups, a lot of children get I'm trouble for talking because most of there work is independent. I believe children feed off of each other and help each other learn. When it comes to the bond with children, I believe younger children need to feel a bond with there teacher in order to learn. Younger children want to be around someone who is nice and relates to what they like. I do believe there is a level that shouldn't be crossed but knowing your children and relating to them isn't crossing the line. When it comes to parents, I believe parents should be required to be involved in the classroom in some ways. Parents are the ones with there children most, and know there children better then anyone else. If you give parents the chance to be involved it can help the child in there home environment to continue learning. I think there should be opportunities for parents to come into the

The Teacher’s Style
Assigning homework serves in various educational needs; it serves as a intellectual discipline, and establishing study habits. Male teacher spend more time making sure the student is learning what is covered in class by assigning more homework; females tend to give out less homework, but their time is more emphases on going over the lecture. This…
1) What do you believe is your predominant learning style and why?
I believe I am a mixture of learning styles, however, my predominant learning style is Visual/Verbal.
I believe this to be true because I can easily visualise objects, pictures and words. Since I was a little girl I was able to visualise things like my notebook and most of my own notes in it. When in Primary School, I discovered it to be very helpful skill as I could visualise my notebook in such details that I could turn over…
this essay stated that I believe that having to change schools does not harm children for three reasons. Children at new schools learn how to make new friends. They learn how to get along with a variety of people. They also learn about different teaching styles. For these three reasons, I believe that having to change schools does not harm children.
Boring, mechanical ending.
-The conclusion restates the thesis.
-Instead of recopying your thesis and essay map, try, finding an original, empathic way…
Grand Canyon University: EED 470
January 7, 2015
Constructivism and explicit teaching styles almost appear to be opposites of one another, especially when used in the contexts of the classroom. The more I read about these two styles the more I thought that if a teacher could use both styles in a harmonious balance the students would have the greatest benefit. Not many students want to sit and listen to the droning lecture of a teacher. Memorizing facts, reading chapter after chapter…
A Look At Teaching Styles
Individuals have their own varies and preferred way of learning .In every course that you learn, ether on campus or online you should look for opportunities to connect to and to use each one of the two major styles of teaching. The two styles are Professor centered teaching and learner centered teaching. In this essay I will attempt to compare the two styles of the teaching that different professors use. I will compare each of the structures views on philosophy and…

VARK Analysis Paper
A learning style is how an individual takes in information, retains and process it and recall those information. A very common concept of learning style is that “persons differ in how they learn”. The difference in individual’s learning style started in 1970 and it has great effect in education. Knowing your learning styles develop coping strategies in your weakness and strengthen your learning outcome. Example: A teacher who utilizes various teaching methods can reach out to larger…
Beliefs about teaching and learning
I believe that teaching and learning is an individual unique experience for both students and educators. For students to benefit the most in their learning environment, teachers need to understand different learning techniques and styles. Some educators consider what they do a 40 hour a week job however for their goals and context to come across to their students they must consider what they do a lifestyle. If teachers are to be entrusted with the education of…
Task 12. Describe features of inclusive teaching and learning.
Inclusive learning makes sure that the learners always have the chance to be involved and included in the classroom whilst learning. It ensures every earner is treated fair and equal, and no discrimination occurs, so nobody can be excluded. Inclusion also includes behaviours and attitudes of both learners and teachers, and how words and actions can affect learners in the slightest ways. As we are all aware that every learner has individual…
