Ecs 200 chapter 11 promoting and motivating

3 things that are new to me

1. Many students experience ripple effects in the classroom that influences success. This was something particularly true for my class and home life being able to learn from my others mistakes.

2. Research shows teachers self efficacy grows from students. This is interesting and probobly has to do with the fact that teachers need to have a good set of values and goals in order to know how to promote them to the students.

3. I learnt that there is factors that influence individual learning. Models are likely to perform actions they believe are appropriate to receive rewarding outcomes. One of the reasons why I agree is because without my own role models who promoted high grade goals I wouldn’t have had a high enough average to attend university.

2 things I connected with

  1.  I usually do not connect at the first page in the chapter but when The page addressed how you need to be organized and how students come to class with some bags and filled with overdue assignments, sheets and papers from last semester, I thought I still do this in University.  With this in mind I know that this is a problem that I will need to look at as a teacher and make sure that I am better self regulating in order to be a positive role model.

2. Self talk and self instruction is important to the student.  I use self talk as a coping mechanism myself and it helps me to plan and make goals for myself. I feel like sometimes saying these goals out loud makes them feel more realistic.

1 question I still have

1.  What happens if I do not have my own self efficacy as a teacher as we know this will influence my students. Who will be my teacher to help promise me to a better self.

3 things I found interesting

1. I think it is interesting there is research out in to find the different types of parenting styles. It’s interesting how in my mind when reading the different styles I can remember a parent from my community that is a pure example of that style.

2. Moratorium means identity crisis; suspension of choices because of struggle. I think how it’s interesting that now I have a name to call this struggle it makes it seem valuable to being aware of in my students so I can help guide them into choice that will be more successful in there future.

3. I think it’s crazy that girls already in grade 2 and 3 have experienced a time where they used rational aggression. They might just do it verbally by lashing out but this is something important to keep in mind so we can guide them to exspress there emotions in a different way.

2 things I have connected with

1. We learnt that girls tend to mature faster than boys and I connected this with the importance of recess because Maturation might be a leading factor in a child’s recessed play. The reason why I think it is detrimental it’s because when someone says they may lose their sense of imagination and instead of wanting to run around the lower playground imagining the ground is lava we usually see girl students trying to stay inside or not moving around and just socializing with friends.

2. My moms parenting was quite wishy-washy. Her parenting style was quite authoritarian. The reason I found this style wishy-washy is she never explained reasoning behind her rules. An example could be When one day u get in trouble for something and the next day u do it but u still get in trouble for not doing it right and the next day u do it right but there’s never a reward or reason that you know of to do the task.

 

1 thing I’m still wondering about

1. We learnt the many parenting styles but which one would be best for a child with a behaviour problem based on psychological research.

 

ECS 200 RESPONSE 1 (educational psychology)

3 Things I have learnt:
1: There are limitations on theory’s and they don’t always work and that’s why they are called a theory. Before this class I had the belief that Piaget was the only theorist I should be following now seeing Vygotsky in a different light has made me question my values.
2: That listening to Mozart does not make you smarter. This must have been a belief I learnt through the school system it was interesting to debunk this belief and see how actually playing an instrument can hep to our success as a student. This new belief has made me see an importance in learning an instrument and how bands and orchestras can be beneficial.
3: I have learnt from the book and in lecture how my belief systems connect more with Vygotskys than Piagets. The reason I believe I havethis connection for this is when I grew up I took on many of the same values and beliefs on who I surrounded myself with. I grew up in a mixed family so understand how a lot self building in myself came from people I looked up to that were not blood related.

2 Things I have connected with:
1: Brain imaging proved that students who are great readers are better at learning terminology and new words in books because they can draw connections to other words they have learnt versus those who are not exceptional at reading. I struggled reading as a student so I definitely agree this is not only accurate but it can also be seen in writing when a student is not an exceptional reader they sometimes do not have the best understanding on how to get their ideas across in a efficient manner.
2: Having a connecting to resilient students I believe will be beneficial to me as a teacher many students need to overcome challenges to learn and be successful. I have learnt from my life it is good to surround yourself with people who have goals and a healthy relationship with school because it makes you value school differently and I found when I do this I have a higher success rate even if I am facing challenges in my home life.
1 Thing that I am still wondering:

1: With the many theorist we are learning about how do we place our values and beliefs into a theory and follow it without becoming wishy washy when there is no set way in how we should teach the future.
