Miriam D. Harvell Jan 14 th , 2021 SEC 510 Dr. Pollock Clinical Field Experience A: Classroom Management & Expectations! Mentor: Ms. LaKeisha Walker School: Martin Luther King Elementary School (Alabama) Grade: 2 nd School District: Montgomery Public Schools (Alabama) 1. According to my mentor, Ms. LaKeisha Walker, “knowledge is the most important aspect in education. She studies her students to determine their needs and interests.” This method of teaching requires patience, motivation skills, and management; these qualities are flourishing in her and me as well. Teachers must incorporate thoughts from the students. This enables the students to learn more efficiently because they are contributing to the lesson. The students and teachers are playing a role in deciding what is taught. Teachers have about 70% of the choice of what is taught, while the students should have about 30%. Teachers should teach by concentrating on the growth of specific skills, which include math, history, science, foreign language, and literature. Other subjects, such as art or music, should be taken more seriously after the other skills are mastered by the students. The curriculum should be developed around the main subjects and the needs and experiences of the students. Teachers are distributing knowledge and guiding the students at the same time. Teachers should teach by lecture and by questions from the students. The students can even walk around and talk with other students about a particular subject, and they can get suggestions from the teacher. Field trips, computer simulations, and interactive websites can make the students better understand subjects. Students must “soak up” the information they are learning and become problem-solvers. Once the basics are learned, the students will be able to apply what they have learned in real life (L. Walker, personal communication, December 27, 2020.) 2. According to Ms. LaKeisha Walker, “the definition of effective is producing an anticipated or expected result.” When effective is applied to teaching, it is teaching that results in students reaching all the goals they are set to accomplish through learning. Effective teaching does not have one written solution to the puzzle. Effective teaching requires the teacher to use a variety of methods to meet each student’s need in the classroom. Effective teaching requires flexibility. Effective teachers begin the job by evaluating the students first. After the evaluation is complete, the teachers decide which technique or information to use for teaching. The teaching requires constant evaluation, and it is adapted to the student’s level. A student may be on a different level than another student, so the teacher must teach differently. All students are expected to learn, and they
