Fs 1 episode 4 individual differences and learners interaction

  1. 1. FS 1 FIELD STUDY The Learner’s Development and Environment Episode 4 INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES AND LEARNER’S INTERACTION (Focusing on differences in gender, racial, religious backgrounds) Name of FS Student NOEL JABAGAT PAROHINOG_______________________________ Course Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education major in English Year & Section II- C__ Resource Teacher Mrs. Flerida Lawrence Demegillo, M.A. Signature _____________ Cooperating School Binalbagan Catholic College - High School Department _____ ____ Your Target At the end of this activity, you will gain competence in determining teaching approaches and techniques considering the individual differences of the learners. Your Map The learners’ individual differences and the types of interaction they bring surely affect the quality of teaching and learning. This episode is about observing and gathering data to find out how student diversity affects learning. To reach your target, do the following task 1. Observe a class in different parts of a school day Step (beginning of the day, class time, recess, etc Step 2. Describe the characteristics of the learners in terms of age, gender, social and cultural diversity. Step 3. Observe the interaction that transpires inside and outside the classroom. Step 4. Interview your resource teacher about the principles that she uses in dealing with the diversity inside the classroom. Step 5. Analyze the impact of individual differences in learners interaction.
  2. 2. Your Tools Use the activity form provided for you to document your observations. An Observation Guide for the Learners’ Characteristic Read the following carefully before you begin to observe. Then write your observation report on the space provided on the next page. 1. Find out the number of the students. Gather data as to their ages, gender, and racial groups, religious and ethnic backgrounds. During class: 1. How much interaction is there in the classroom? Describe how students interact with one another and with the teacher. Are there groups that interact more with the teacher than others. 2. Observe the learners seated at the back and the front part of the room. Do they behave and interact differently? 3. Describe the relationship among the learners. Do the learners cooperate with or compete against each other? 4. Which students participate actively/ which students ask for most help? 5. When a student is called and cannot answer the teacher’s question, do the classmates try to help him? Or do they raise their hands so that the teacher will call them instead? Outside class: 1. How do the students group themselves outside class? Homogenously by age? by gender? by racial or ethnic groups? Or are the students in mixed social groupings? If so, describe the groupings. 2. Describe how the learners interact with each other. What do they talk about?
  3. 3. OBSERVATION REPORT Name of School Observed Binalbagan Catholic College – High School Department ___ School Address San Gregorio, Village, Binalbagan Negros Occidental ___ Date of Visit September 16, 2010 ___ September 16, 2010 marks the day of our observation in Binalbagan Catholic College – High School Department. Our target on this activity is to gain competence in determining teaching approaches and techniques considering the individual differences of the learners in terms of age, religious setting, social and cultural diversity. I observed the class of Mrs. Amandoron in fourth year Almaciga. She discussed about the communicative skills in English as their main focal point because they were presently reviewing for the incoming NCAE – National Career Assessment Examination Test. In the room, the learners who are occupying the classroom were approximately 40 students. There are 23 males and 20 in females. Most of them are Roman Catholic in terms of religious setting. They ages 15 and above. Some of them are came from minority level and there are others also who were reared by an average level family. During the class hour, I was terribly impressed with students speaking about their interaction, for the reason that they are very participative and instantly responds to the question which asked by their teacher. I saw that there are group of students in the classroom who act as a leader and a little teacher; for they are the one who volunteer to make right the mistake of their classmates though they already know that the teacher is responsible for that. But I admired them not because of being a corrector in the classroom but for helping their classroom a good and interactive way so as to help the teacher achieved a better classroom interaction. Furthermore, the students who seated at the back and front part of the room are exceedingly supportive, cooperative, and participative and they show positive behavior inside the classroom. The interaction is still the same in terms of a students arrangement whether it is at the back or in front of the classroom. In addition, as what I have perceived, when their teacher called and asked them a question concerning about the topic they are being discuss, the student who previously got the wrong answer was helped by his classmates by merely raising their hands to call the attention of the teacher. He tried to help his classmate who are standing and currently think for the answer. This is only shows oneness towards the learners and the teachers wherein the students participate actively. Before their class ends, their teacher told them to study their lessons and ended it with a closing prayer. The class had ended already but still my eyes don’t stop staring at the learners. I tried to grappled on my mind what should they next to do. After a short time of watching on them, I have already an idea on how they grouped themselves based on my observation. They used to form a grouped in terms of gender and by racial group. Gender and racial group because one student told me that they favor to choose a group by racial because they wanted to have a group accompanying person in school which is there remote neighbor in there place already. While grouping themselves they quickly talked more on their earlier topic, their group activity and even there assignments on the next day. *
  4. 4. Your Analysis 1. Identify the persons who play key roles in the relationship and interactions in the classroom. What roles do they play? Is there somebody who appears to be the leader, a mascot/joker, an attention seeker, a little teacher, a doubter/ pessimist? The persons who play an important roles in the classroom interactions are the teacher and the students. The teacher acts as facilitator and the student as learner. There are students who are attention seeker; they tried to caught the attention of their teacher as well as their classmates. There are students who appeared to be the leader and a little teacher; they are the one who teaches their classmates who have less knowledge on the subject matter. The teacher and students are also jokers in the classroom. The teacher jokes to break the monotony in the room. 2. Are students coming from the majority group accepted or rejected by the others? How is this shown? There are situations wherein the students that belong to the minority group (e.g. poor, black complexion, etc.) are bein g rejected by some of their classmates. This is manifested through group activity and class discussion and even during and after class hours. Some of the students who belong to the average group don’t want to have a groupmates who are in minority level. Others are also laughing their classmates when somebody commit mistake like for example wrong pronunciation of words. Probably, these kind of cases are found in every institutions in which this could affect the deterioration of self-possession of every students. 3. How does the teacher influence the class interaction considering the individual differences of the students? The teacher influence the class interaction considering the individual differences of the students by manifesting a fairly values inside the classroom. The teacher doesn’t discourage her students whenever responding her wrong answer from the question. The teacher doesn’t show biases according to her students performance and routine when they were inside the classroom. 4. What factors influence the grouping of learners outside the classroom? “Birds of the same feather, flocks together”. This is comparable to the groupings of the learners outside the classroom. The persons having common interest with one another are in one group. The factors that manipulated the groupings of learners outside the classroom are there gender, racial, ethnic and religious background. For instance, one student has a preference to choose a friend who has the same gender and racial group with him.
  5. 5. Your Reflections 1. How did you feel being in that classroom? Did you feel a sense of oneness or unity among the learners and between the teacher and the learners? While I am seating at the back of the classroom, observing, watching the learners, I feel an optimistic feelings that as if I am already a teacher of them. Within my mind I could sense the oneness and unity among the learners and the teacher because the learners intermingled positively to their teacher, when their teacher ask a question they responds it instantly without any hesitation and qualm to themselves. This is shown by the student who have a full self-confidence and trust to himself. 2. In the future, how would you want the learners in your classroom interact? How will you make this happen? In the future, I want that the classroom interaction to be very interactive and participative wherein the learners could express their ideas in varied modes and participate actively in every classroom activities. As a prospective teacher, I am the facilitator of the learning process, providing direction and feedback to the students rather than just instruction and I will focus instruction on the needs, preferences and interests of the learner. 3. How will you encourage the learners, regardless of religious, ethnic or racial background, to interact and participate? As a future educator, most likely I will treat my students fairly. I will inculcate in the minds of them the value of being just and respectful. If ever I ask them a certain question and respond me with a wrong answer. Ofcourse I will not discourage them so that they could feel the so called unity towards each other regardless of their religious, ethnic or racial background. Further, I will initiate to them that there religious, ethnic, and even their racial backgrounds are not the major concern of education and it is not a gigantic blockade to there success in participating within the classroom. The total achievement lies on their hands not on the system they have on their background.
