Field Study 1, Episode 2 "The Learners' Characteristics and Needs"

  1. 1. My Tools Use the activity form provided for you to document your observations. An Observation Guide for the Learners’ Characteristics Read the following statements carefully. Then write your observation report on the provided space. Your teacher may also recommend another observation check-list if a more detailed observation is preferred. Physical 1. Observe their gross motor skills. How they carry themselves. How they move, walk, run, go up the stairs, etc. 2. Are gross movements clumsy or deliberate/smooth? 3. How about their fine motor skills? Writing, drawing, etc. Social 1. Describe how they interact with teachers and other adults. 2. Note how they also interact with peers. What do they talk about? What are their concerns? Emotional 1. Describe the emotional disposition or temperament of the learners. (happy, sad, easily cries, mood-shifts) 2. How do they express their wants/needs? Can they wait? 3. How do they handle frustrations? 4. Describe their level of confidence as shown in their behavior. Are they self- conscious? Cognitive 1. Describe their ability to use words to communicate their ideas. Note their language proficiency. 2. Describe how they figure out things. Do they comprehend easily? Look for evidence of their thinking skills. 3. Were there opportunities for problem solving? Describe how did they show problem solving abilities.
  2. 2. Learners’ Development Matrix Record the data you gathered about the learners’ characteristics and needs in this matrix. This will allow you to compare the characteristics and needs of learners at different levels. The items under each domain are by no means exhaustive. These are just sample indicators. You may add other aspects which you may have observed. Development Domain Preschooler Indicate age range of children observed Elementary Indicate age range of children observed High School Indicate age range of children observed Physical Gross-motor skills Fine-motor skills Self-help skills Others - The child loves to move around - He is still learning how to write. - He needs to be guided. - He loves to play a lot. - He loves to draw different shapes. - He can sometimes help himself. - She already knows how to dance. - She knows how to write poems, letters essays, stories, etc. - She’s doing all things by himelf.

  3. 3. My Analysis Write the most salient developmental characteristics of the learners you observed. Based on these characteristics, think of implications for the teacher. Example: Level Salient Characteristics Observed Implications to the Teaching- Learning Process Preschool Age range of Learners Observed  Preschoolers like to move around a lot  Therefore, the teacher should remember to use music and movement activities not just in PE but in all subject areas.  Therefore, teachers should not expect preschoolers to stay seated for a long period of time . Level Salient Characteristics Observed Implications to the Teaching- Learning Process Preschool Age range of Learners Observed  Preschoolers always want to play  Therefore, the teacher should not only focus on teaching academically but also he/she must give time for playing.  Therefore, teachers should train preschoolers to have confidence in the class. Elementary Age range of Learners Observed  Kids love to have some time playing sports such as basketball.  Therefore, teachers must help in promoting the value of playing sports to the students. High School Age range of Learners Observed  High school students like to talk and mingle with others.  Therefore, teachers should remember to have some activities that will help the students in socializing with others.
  4. 4. My Reflections 1. While you were observing the learners, did you recall your own experiences when you were their age? What similarities or differences do you have with the learners you observed? While I’m observing the learners, I remembered those days when I was at their age. There’s a lot of similarities and differences I remembered. The similarities are playing with my classmates, sometimes not listening to the teacher, running inside the classroom, etc. The difference is when I was a child, when I got warned by the teacher, I immediately behave unlike the kids nowadays who are so stubborn and not listening to what their teachers says. 2. Think of a teacher you cannot forget for positive or negative reasons. How did she/he help or not help you with your needs (physical, emotional, social, and cognitive)? How did it affect you? The teacher that I cannot forget is my teacher in EP when I was still in my first year high school. I cannot forget her because of the grade she gave to me in second grading. I don’t know why she gave me that grade. I’m really disappointed that time. It’s the first failing grade I get since elementary. It really affects me emotionally and socially, socially because after the releasing of grades, I didn’t anymore join any barkadas’ and be always alone instead. 3. Share your other insights here. Children are still developing and constructing knowledge so in terms of teaching, we should discuss topics that are relevant or appropriate to their cognitive level. Learners must not force to perform tasks that are beyond their current cognitive capabilities. This learning will be applied to my teaching profession someday in facilitating learning of the children soon I will become a teacher.
  5. 5. My Portfolio Which is your favorite theory of development? How can this guide you as a future teacher? Clip some readings about this theory and paste them here. Erik Erikson’s Theory : Psychosocial Development I choose Erikson’s theory because it is indeed true that personality is determined by experiences during childhood and adulthood. Development has a series or stages where it is determined by crisis. As a person grows up, she/she will acquire and construct knowledge and different characteristics that fit on his/her age depending on the stage he/she belongs.
