My Educational Philosophy, Including Behavioral Theories - When looking at my teaching philosophy and how I want students to learn in my classroom it becomes very apparent that to achieve success I need to utilise effective behaviour management strategies and create a classroom community. If there is a climate of trust and respect within the classroom, students are more likely to uphold the class expectations and complete what they have been asked to do (Blance, 2003). To create a classroom where students trust and respect each other I will look at how Glasser’s Choice Theory (1998) and total behaviour can be used to minimise behavioural disturbances and promote self management....   [tags: Philosophy of Education, teaching, teachers]

My Beliefs About Teaching and Learning - I was extremely moved and inspired by the positive message and thematic undertones of the movie Radio. I have personally witnessed many children who have been subjected to discrimination and mistreatment. Needless to say, this had a direct impact upon their self-esteem and well-being. The story envokes the realization that anyone can be mentally liberated if they simply only open their eyes and behold the value of individuality. It is up to each of us to explore this meaning.

Personal Philosophy: Child Development and Teaching - Personal Philosophy Introduction Child development is divided into four areas of development; social / emotional, physical (motor), cognitive, and language. Typically children develop in a sequence of stages in each area. Although development normally follows the same series of stages, there are individual differences in what age each stage occurs. Development in part depends on the experiences a child encounters.

My Educational Philosophy - My Educational Philosophy To describe my educational philosophy, I needed to combine two philosophers into one making it my own. I plan to explain my philosophical view by discussing the purpose of public education in society.

I feel the overall purpose of education is to teach students traditional academic subjects such as math, reading and writing, social studies, the sciences, music, art, computer science, health, and physical education....   [tags: Philosophy of Education Teaching] 476 words

The Liberal Arts and the End of Education - The Liberal Arts and the End of Education ABSTRACT: An international conference that takes Philosophy Educating Humanity as its theme does well to revisit the liberal arts tradition. Although the liberal arts are most often assimilated to studies brought together as the Humanities, the old usage included the arts which employed artificial languages in mathematics, music, and astronomy, as well as the literature and letters of the various natural languages. The current conflation of liberal education with the humanities does violence to the historical tradition in education, reducing it to fluff in the eyes of tough-minded scientists who know that only numbers deliver objectivity....   [tags: Philosophy Education Learning Essayas] 3056 words
