Education will have to take account of the changing context created by technology and will have to respond with creative methods such as these to keep children engaged and stimulated. Teachers have to compete with many external stimuli for the attention of children. This method also allows for more individual support and differentiation.

Effective Strategies for Teaching English Language Learners

A review of ideas for English Second Language teachers!...

 


Via Trish Johnson
Marie Schoeman's insight:

This article focuses on effective ways teachers can help ESL students overcome barriers to meaningful instruction. Teachers can use strategies based on social interactionist theory, such as that of Vygotsky, to create classroom conditions that foster learning by modeling, scaffolding and helping students to construct understanding, with the eventual goal of becoming independent thinkers and problem solvers. The author identifies four loads as barriers to meaningful instruction: cognitive load, culture load, language load and learning load; and she states teachers must be skilled at lowering these barriers and sparking student interest and curiosity by developing a creative, wise and passionate curriculum.

Depending on the day, the attendance roster, and the phase of the moon, you might have to change up your plans or your schedule to accommodate your students. As they grow and change, your methods might have to as well. If your goal is to promote a curriculum or method, it will feel like a personal insult when you have to modify it. Make connecting with your student your goal and you’ll have no trouble changing it up as time moves on.

There are many effective ways that a teacher can use to help students in achieving their goals.  Teachers can use their knowledge in a way that will help students to succeed.  If teachers are clear with what they want from a student while finding an equal balance between being strict and too easy.  Teachers that are nice and that create a well rounded environment for the student will create a successful student.  These teachers will have the reward of being a successful teacher and having successful students.

Toilet Training and Inclusive Education - Children with Special Needs

Toilet Training and Inclusive Education - Children with Special Needs | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
Opportunities for inclusive placements in regular classrooms and community programs should not be limited when children have not achieved toilet training goals in preschool or on IEPs during their school years.
Marie Schoeman's insight:
There is no good reason to exclude children from opportunities to develop academic skills, unrelated self care skills, social or educational inclusion based on their challenges in toileting. Children with disabilities deserve our respect and the right to conduct themselves with dignity no matter what their age, developmental level, or academic placement.
