Observation In Classroom

Good Essays
In the class I observe, the classroom management is nothing like an ordinary classroom you would go into. In a special education class, you will never know what is going to happen next. There are not many rules posted on the walls or written anywhere. When the students misbehave or do not follow the rules, a teacher will verbally tell the student not to repeat that action. The students do not understand right from wrong. There are not many consequences when a child misbeahves in the classroom. If they are acting out the teacher usually tells them to either go in the sensory room to calm down or put their head on their desk. If they are constantly misbehaving and not changing their attitude, the teacher will then warn the student they will not …show more content…
The students have a piece of paper on there desk of what their own schedule will look like for the day. From observing, I would say the student’s transitions are more like breaks between schoolwork. The teachers usually let the students take a break in between different activities. In my opinion, I believe that the breaks have a huge effect on the learning environment. From observing, I have noticed the breaks for the students between different activites are abused. There have been times where one of the students will take a twenty-minute break and the teacher begins doing something else. In my opinion, the student does not need that long of a transition between different …show more content…
All of the teachers get along great with the students. The teachers constantly are verbally interacting with the students. The teachers will always use postive words towards the students. For example, after each stuident does a problem correctly the teacher will always complement them on their hardwork. Whenever something goes wrong, the teacher will always talk it out with the student. In my opinion, the bond between the teachers and the students is great. I believe if the teachers and the students get along, the learning environment goes a lot smoother. When it comes to non-verbal cues, things can get a little hectic. The students give the teachers a lot of hugs and smiles. There are times where a student may get overwhelmed and begin to hit the teacher or pull their hair. This action can be either overly excited or angry. The teachers never take it personaly because the students cannot help it sometimes. These actions can lead to an ineffective learning environment because it takes time away from schoolwork. In the classroom, the students tend to not interact as much as a normal classroom setting would. Many of the students do not get along with each other. The only two students that interact with each other are the twin girls. The teachers try to keep the students separted because they usually end up physically hurting one another. In my opinion, the students do not have enough social interaction and the students do not

    They rarely participate in any activity, they fail in their academics, and they are usually the victims of bullying. I have seen and experienced personally how interesting lessons appear boring to these kinds of students. I was able to talk to some of them and they told me that they could not focus well because of the different issues that they were facing. Some also mentioned that they could not mention their problems and issues because there was nobody to listen to them. Teachers need to know their students better in order to understand them and make adjustments for them.…

    Being this is a student led students feel that it hurts there grade, and they are not as successful on the tests as they are when they have the whole. “Literature circles prevent students from fully understanding the text and cause students to perform poorly on tests because they usually turn to student play sessions due to the lack of leadership, in contrast to class discussions in which students stay on task and have the guidance of teachers (Fardous, 2015, para. 3).” Working in groups may also take away valuable time to teaching the lesson by students not knowing how to work in small groups taking more time for the teacher to explain how to work together.

The teachers in the classroom do not really ask questions unless they are do evaluations.

There are many demonstrations the teachers show the studnets while working with them.…
