8 Ways of Aboriginal Learning by julian emsley on Prezi Too Many Students and Not Enough Time Student learning and growth can become obscured by three obstacles that teachers may feel powerless to address: class size, overall workload, and instructional time. These are genuine concerns, so let’s take a closer look at each challenge and possible solutions. The Class Size Challenge Large classes are a difficult challenge faced by many teachers. Having taught in urban, suburban, and rural schools, and having worked with teachers in these environments, I can say from experience that class size does make instruction and student learning a daily puzzle to solve. Differentiation solutions for navigating large classes: 1. 2. The Workload Challenge Workload is a different but at times related issue. Differentiation solutions that address this issue: Learning Profile Cards: Get to know all students from their perspective.

First Australians | Sections | Share Our Pride Local people may have a preference for how they are described, for example at a function or event. If you’re not sure of a person’s particular language group and can’t find out, it’s usually okay to simply acknowledge them as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. The easiest way to find out is to ask the person themselves – they will see this as showing respect and they’ll appreciate it. Connection with country is crucial to the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. For millennia, when Indigenous people visited the country of others, there would be rituals of welcoming to country. Usually a ‘Welcome to Country’ will occur at the beginning of any major public meeting. An ‘Acknowledgment of Country’ can be done by any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australians that are not traditional owners of the country you are meeting on, or by non-Indigenous Australians. Acknowledgements can be done at the beginning of any meeting.

4 Proven Strategies for Teaching Empathy Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy has the capacity to transform individual lives for the better while helping to bring about positive social change in schools and communities worldwide. In psychology, there are currently two common approaches to empathy: shared emotional response and perspective taking. Shared emotional response, or affective empathy, occurs when an individual shares another person’s emotions. Perspective taking, also known as cognitive empathy, occurs when a person is able to imagine herself in the situation of another. Here are some strategies our graduates around the world use with their students to help develop both affective and cognitive empathy. Modeling Teachers can be role models who, by example, show students the power of empathy in relationships. Teaching Point of View We use the numbers 6 and 9 to teach students about different points of view. Using Literature to Teach Different Perspectives

teach-ec This theme area introduces appropriate curriculum and pedagogy for teaching Indigenous children and demonstrates how Indigenous teaching and learning practices can be of benefit to all education participants. Resources found here present knowledge and appreciation of the importance and implications of full consultation with local Indigenous communities within these settings. Resources developed in community by community featuring ‘two-ways together’ and ‘both ways learning’ are explored. Further, the important concept of ‘Kinship’ and the understanding from a non–Indigenous perspective of this integral element of Indigenous life is explored by Auntie Patricia Doolan, President Aboriginal Education Consultative Group, Dubbo Region, NSW.

Five Ways to Encourage Participation in Class Discussion My twelfth grade class is full of lovely young people. I'm quite enjoying every one of them. However, when it comes time for class discussion, most of them clam up, look at their desks, and silently hope that John will answer my questions. The problem is that class discussion is my fave. The first month of school hasn't been an energy-filled one for me - a cold caught me and it was a nasty, tenacious one that sucked all of my energy. Here are some methods that I've had success with in the past: 1. 2. 3. The hope is that by encouraging them to extend each others ideas-or to refute them- online, they will be more likely to engage with each other during face-to-face discussions in class. 4. 5. So what am I doing to get my students engaged? John, Sophie and Kendra: I love ya, but your days of being alone on the stage are over! Follow Room 213's board my TPT Store on Pinterest.
