Royal Buckingham International School By Michael Marchenko Engaging, Inspiringand Motivating the Students
Royal Buckingham International School Introduction I have been working at the school for 2 weeks as a mathematics teacher and would like to share my findings on how to inspire and motivate the students. It can be done by involving the students and their parents in applying mathematics and science in real life.
Royal Buckingham International School Engaged learning is not a new concept. It can be traced back to the earlier years of the twentieth century when Dewey (1933) argued for active and engaged learning through inquiry. Engagement is often defined as the mobilization of cognitive, affective and motivational strategies for interpretive transactions with text (Bangert-Drowns & Pyke, 2001, p215).
Royal Buckingham International School Jones, Valdez,Nowakowski and Rasmussen (1994) defined engaged learning by giving the following concreteindicators: Engaged learners are responsible for their own learning, and find excitement and pleasure in learning. The tasks for engaged learning are challenging, authentic, and multidisciplinary. The assessment of engaged learning is performance-based and generative, and it has equitable standards that apply to all students. The instructional strategies for engaged learning are interactive and generative. The context for engaged learning is a knowledge-building learning community, collaborative and empathetic. The grouping for engaged learning is heterogeneous, flexible and equitable. The roles of teachers are facilitators, guides, and co-learners; the roles of students are explorers, cognitive apprentices, and producers of knowledge.
Motivating Children in General Young children develop attitudes toward learning from the significant others in their lives If parents or other adults nurture a child's self- confidence and curiosity, and provide resources that invite exploration, they instill the message that learning is useful and fun Children, who observe adults being enthusiastic toward education and coping positively with setbacks, will likely follow their adult role models and pursue knowledge as well as persevere when faced with failure
Through school attendance, children develop beliefs about their abilities and acquire skills to cope with new situations A teacher's perceptions of how children acquire information and their expectations for their students' academic success can have a profound effect upon children's motivation Educators need to believe that their students can learn and challenge them to reach their potential. Royal Buckingham International School
How can educators foster motivation in children? Provide a caring, supportive environment where children are respected and feel a sense of belonging. Believe that every child has the ability to learn. Involve children in making classroom rules and consequences that are clear and understandable to all. Emphasize children's strengths; do not dwell on their weaknesses. Get to know your students' interests, talents, goals, and the way each learns best. Treat each child fairly; exhibit no favoritism. Use consistent discipline and maintain an organized, calm classroom that is conducive to student concentration.
How can educators foster motivation in children? Vary your teaching methods and make the lessons interesting and enjoyable. For example, play a game like "Jeopardy" to review a unit or a form of Bingo to learn new words. Network with other teachers to plan and adapt lessons to meet the students' needs. Define work in specific, short-term goals that can help children associate effort with success. Assist students in seeing that failure is not usually due to lack of ability but to ineffective study habits. Teach children helpful study and time management skills. Help children understand that it is not always easy to develop proficiency in a subject; it takes time and effort. Make expectations clear and provide feedback and credit for work well done.
How can educators foster motivation in children? Refrain from offering nonspecific praise for little effort (see past article, Effective Praise).Effective Praise Never embarrass or ridicule a child. Assign homework that is specific to the educational needs of the child. Expect low-performing children to accomplish achievable tasks. Enhance the status of "doing one's best" and provide group recognition for effort and/or excellence. Emphasize cooperation rather then competition; support opportunities for students to help one another. Assist children in dealing with frustrations by helping them discover ways to cope with problems. Provide the opportunity for all children to lead a classroom activity. Avoid practices that discourage student initiative. Instead of offering help when none is requested or giving the answer, ask questions that encourage thought and offer suggestions of how to find a solution.
How can educators foster motivation in children? Use tangible rewards sparingly. Keep in mind that they may negatively effect children's pursuit of learning for pure pleasure. Provide intangible rewards for unusual student effort or success. For example, a child may receive extra computer time, choose a book to be read to the class, assist the librarian, lead a class game, or eat lunch with the teacher. Remember that many low-achieving students deny the importance of studying and stop working to avoid the shame of having tried and failed. Understand that when students refuse to begin or complete their work, or copy from another child, they may be doing so to protect their self-image (see past article, Understanding Self-Esteem).Understanding Self-Esteem Establish a close working relationship with parents of children who are struggling. Together determine ways to provide a routine, decrease distractions, and help their child acquire good study habits at home (see, Guidelines for Educator-Parent Conferences).Guidelines for Educator-Parent Conferences Encourage parents to assist their child in forming healthy habits such as getting enough rest, eating well and exercising so that they will be ready to learn at school (see past article, Overweight Children).Overweight Children Realize that no teacher is perfect or does everything well. Discover your strengths (see past article, Coping With Stress -- Tips for Educators), learn from your mistakes, and concentrate on doing your best.Coping With Stress -- Tips for Educators
Combining theory with practice Royal Buckingham International School
Royal Buckingham International School Each chapter of mathematics has many important applications: symmetry is applied in physics (people get Nobel Prizes for that), combinatorics is applied in biology and physics; geometry is useful for navigation, guidance, control, design, and geodesy;
Royal Buckingham International School statistics is widely used in everyday life, finance, and science; algebra is crucial for any equation or general presentation of mathematical expression; equations are pivotal in science and real life; proportions are used every day; arithmetic is crucial while dealing with money.
Great people, achievements, and unsolved problems Royal Buckingham International School
Mind revolution will probably occur this century due to better understanding of human mind, creating new jobs in cognitive neuroscience. Royal Buckingham International School
Understanding the Nobel Prizes mathematics and trying to achieve the same can be very inspiring (Einstein,Nash, Black, Scholes, etc.) as well as other successful people such as Bill Gates. Trying to speak the same language with the most successful people of the world can motivate the students to overtake all the mathematics, science and computers curricular as quickly as possible and in the best possible way. Royal Buckingham International School
Students need to participate in the mathematics, science and computer competitions internationally to improve their knowledge and skills, and to get invaluable international experience, to win the prestigious scholarships (I won many prestigious scholarships allover the world and can share my experience on that). Royal Buckingham International School
I can transfer all my knowledge and skills to the students, which would guarantee prestigious scholarships, top quality education and highly paid jobs for many. I possess computer code for solving many problems of applied mathematics. Royal Buckingham International School
We can consider financial mathematics, fractals, string theories, M-theory, Big Bang theory, etc. applying all school knowledge, making them wider, deeper, stronger and better. Royal Buckingham International School
Corresponding clubs can help to achieve the goals. The clubs can be twofold: for those who want to get ahead beyond the minimum school curriculum and for those who are behind others and need to catch up, the former are the students with marks A and B and the latter are the students with marks C, D and E. Royal Buckingham International School
As Mr. Hawking says, people must colonize other planets to survive the challenges of the future. A Rocket club can help the students to master mathematics, computers and science better and quicker. We can design, make, and launch our own rocket in cooperation with LAPAN where work and have connections. Royal Buckingham International School
Dealing with things, which are interesting to the students Royal Buckingham International School
Students can be inspired and motivated by doing interesting things at school while learning (applications of mathematics, science and computers to music analysis, playing basketball and soccer better, predicting the results of the soccer games, computer games, studying the possibilities of UFOs, aliens, parallel universes, becoming a princesses, etc.) Royal Buckingham International School
I closely monitor the performance, effort and progress of every student and can recommend how to improve them; you can meet me at the corresponding clubs and during my office hours to tackle those. Royal Buckingham International School
In our rapidly changing world with constantly increasing competition the importance of good knowledge and skills in mathematics, science and computers is soaring. Royal Buckingham International School
Being a happy student requires successful learning and acquiring skills as well as avoiding unhappiness going through a lot of hardships in the case of failing to use the chance to learn well and to become successful. Royal Buckingham International School
Conclusions Primary school is crucial for the high school, university, and life in general. Successful primary school is the focus of this work. This needs support of the parents. Royal Buckingham International School
