  1. The area I have chosen to cover for my Early years presentation is circletime. This is an area I have researched in detail and feel is very important for young childrens development

    Circle time is extremely good for children's development and has advantages such as: 'Circle Time provides the ideal group listening system for enhancing children's self esteem, promoting moral values, building a sense of team and developing social skills'. (Mosley, J, 1997, p33) The context in which I have chosen to set my situation and training is a school where circle time is rarely used. The school has a very high rate of bullying and children struggle to form friendships. The recent ofsted report states that PSHE teaching is unsatisfactory and there is little positive interaction between children whilst working in the classroom.

  2. Reflection on E111 Course. The major achievement of this course is my understanding of the in my role and responsibilities in dealing with children's learning. In TMA 01 I wrote that it is my job to support the childrens learning (TMA01, 2010

    I am now aware that this was the intention of the course and that without questioning and reflection my practice will not improve. The Open University study topics states that, "As a teaching assistant your role of supporting teaching and learning in the classroom may have evolved with time. Alternatively you may have been recruited to the role for that very purpose. Perhaps you lie somewhere in the middle, having joined the body of teaching assistants just as the role was being reviewed and bearing witness to its expansion and development."

    This small-scale research was undertaken to assess whether modifying the lesson timetable would have any impact on the learners attendance and achievement or in fact what if anything could improve attendance and achievements.

    Turner (2005:5) said: "Education is part of a wider social fabric of values, families and employment. What happens within education is, in part, dependant on what happens outside education, in homes, communities and workplaces." The college policy states, College expects all students to attend all classes punctually and to not knowingly miss class for anything other than illness or exceptional circumstances. This gives the students the best opportunity to be successful in their studies`. What is an exceptional circumstance surely the learners` thoughts on this vary?

    He is very quiet and self-aware, but does periodically come out of his shell showing considerable aptitude. Alex's preferred modality of learning is definitely auditory because he is able to process this information very effectively and retain what he has learned for future retrieval. He shows considerable difficulty with tactile modalities, which includes keyboards and certain types of paper textures, although he has learned to adapt by using a pen to turn the pages of a book. Alex also uses visual modality effectively by reading what is written on the white board and processes this information in the same manner he does auditory information.

  13. Investigating Methods for Increasing the Literacy Rate in Middle School Students

    It is not that students cannot read the words; they simply cannot comprehend what they are reading. In an Alliance for Excellent Education report from 2003 over 3,000 students drop out of high school every school day in America (Fisher and Ivey, "Evaluating the Interventions" 180). Obviously there is a problem with either what we are currently doing in the classroom or the manner in which it is being presented. B. What are we Doing? In most schools explicit instruction of reading skills begins at the elementary level and is gradually phased out throughout the middle school years, with high school students receiving little if any instructional support that builds further reading skills.

    The main components of ontology are concepts, relations, attributes, instances and axioms. For integration and extraction of meaningful information from accumulated biological databases. We have to define these components; such components can be interpreted as meta-data (domain specific, task specific or generic). The metadata provides a way to reduce both cost of integrating new data sources and the cost of access to integrated data sources. In result integrated data are easier to understand and allows complex queries and the number of site boundaries.

  16. This essay will examine the individual learning needs of a child with an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) called Mikail. The essay will explore the continuum of provision within the education system and also the continuum of needs with regards to Mikail

    The Learning Trust (2007) considers all children and young people to be on a continuum of needs. Where there is a continuum of need, a continuum of provision should be made available. A continuum of provision looks at the difference in provision for different learning needs and include mainstream, mainstream with specialist adjustments, co-located provision and advisory, support and outreach services. The continuum of needs was officially recognised within the Warnock Report (1978) which resulted in provision being implemented in the form of The Code of Practice and the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Need (DfE, 1994).

    personal satisfaction, goal achievement). In the classroom this corresponds to students achieving their target grades. During my teaching practice I have moved away from trying to impart knowledge on students towards assisting individual students fulfil their potential. In order to achieve this I have moved to see students' problems and needs through their eyes and then help overcome these problems. This works to support Rogers (1994), a key philosopher in the humanistic movement who said: - "The outstanding quality of the successful teacher is empathy - the ability to see someone else's problem through ones' own eyes and to communicate that understanding with clarity and care" Whilst at this stage of my development I would not class myself as a 'successful teacher' I believe I am working to develop the skills required to be successful.

  18. Reflective Report on Inclusive Resource

    Inclusion is focused upon by professionals, authorities and schools as special educational needs; however inclusion is a focus on a wide range of diverse socio economic backgrounds, differing ethnicities, gender imbalances with regards to attainment and also those who are described as "gifted and talented". Hence a more appropriate definition is "Inclusion is about the quality of children's experience; how they are helped to learn, achieve and participate fully in the life of the school." (DfES, Removing Barriers to Achievement (2004)).

"They who educate children well are more to be honoured than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well."


If you love empowering others and you have an insatiable appetite for learning, then a university degree in education or teaching could be your best next step. The Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree focuses on educational techniques, while a BA or BSc degree paired with qualified teacher status (QTS) training will put emphasis on the subject that youd like to teach.

Writing will be important in this field, both for your degree and for your career afterwards. Simply put: if you go on to teach, you will probably be required to mark essays. Study Marked by Teachers' collection of worked examples, and not only will you improve your own writing, you'll learn what teachers and professors should look for in a good essay.

Both of these degree routes will prepare students to embark upon careers within education and teaching, but some graduates may opt to pursue careers related to their specialised subject instead, or depart to enter jobs in areas like consulting, management, and HR.

  • Review and Evaluate your Recent Interaction with a Learner/Group of Learners with Reference to Theories of Teaching, Learning and Assessment

    "I am also aware that assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning. On reflecting on this lesson, I feel to progress in my teaching and to enhance the learning to take place I need to be asking more questions, continuously through the lesson (formative assessment). Since this lesson, I write notes on the learners work in forms of praise, I find this encourages them. I have since taken note of my learner's reactions and have noticed they are quite proud when reading positive comments. I do this even when noticing a slight improvement in their work. "Even if his or her work has not, as a whole, met the required criteria, it will be possible to identify relevant strengths. It is important for learners' motivation that they should be made aware of their strengths and successes, even if there only relative." Wallace (2007, PG 177) I feel that every lesson I gain more knowledge on how to become a good teacher. I realise that I am only at the beginning and I am only scratching the surface and still have a lot to learn. However, if I continue to reflect on my lessons and adjust them to suit my learners, I believe this will help me improve and enable me to be an effective teacher."

  • "Bad grades equals bad parents". Discuss this statement with reference to your own personal experience.

    "In my opinion, parents might have an effect on the grades of their children only in the very early stages of life. However, since examinations are done by the children and not by the parents their role is minimal. Later, especially from the secondary school onwards it depends upon the students themselves whether they want to study or not. Renzo Cordina Commerce 1a"

  • 1: Will give a brief introduction to Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.Section 2: Will highlight the common characteristics of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.Section 3: Will discuss ways how to deal with

    "Conclusion In general, one can say that emotional and behavioral problems need to be taken very seriously. As prospective teachers we need to be familiar with the above characteristics since it is very likely that we will be teaching students with emotional and behavioral problems. Most importantly, we need to make sure that we focus on the students' educational needs rather than on correcting inappropriate behavior. As teachers we must remember that our first concern is the students' educational growth. Researching this topic has helped me to become familiar with the characteristics of EBD. Presently, I am working as a supply teacher and one of my students has behavioral problems. Consequently, I hope that by applying what I have learned during this assignment will help me to better accommodate this particular student's needs."
