Nursing 5347 Effective Teaching Strategies

Dr. Beeman

This assignment brought forth questions as to what type of teaching philosophy most represented the way I wanted to teach. Pondering over these questions led me to look back and remember how I best learned a subject and what type of instruction was given that kept my interest and made me want to continue learning that subject. Then I realized that I learned best in a pro active teaching/learning environment where a subject or concept was introduced and then having it broken down into layers going from the concept of simple to complex until I gained an understanding of what was presented. This type of teaching motivated me to want to learn more on the subject and this style of teaching is what I want to bring to my students. I want to motivate students to be pro active in their learning, empowering them to apply learned experiences into practice and gain a greater understanding of nursing as an ever evolving and scholarly profession.

Charles Reigeluth’s Elaboration Theory (1999), an instructional design, represents the teaching philosophy I want to employ. By its definition, it is a design theory that contends that concepts, principles or tasks to be learned should be organized and taught from simple to complex order, while maintaining the overall meanings and principles of the context presented, leaving open areas in which ideas can be integrated and elaborated on.

According to Reigeluth (1999), this theory has four values that make up its the concepts and principles: (1) it values and fosters instruction meaning and motivation by offering a holistic approach through sequences of instruction, (2) it promotes self directed learning and decision making, (3) it…...

Sheltered Instruction

...Sheltered instruction is an approach to teaching English language learners which integrates language and content instruction. The dual goals of sheltered instruction are: to provide access to mainstream, grade-level content, and to promote the development of English language proficiency. Sheltered instruction techniques were designed to be used by all students, however teachers must be sensitive to how languages are learned in order for them to be affective. Sheltered instruction differs from the traditional ESL classroom by focusing on subject mastery instead of focusing on English development. Sheltered instruction draws from methods and strategies advocated for both second language learners and mainstream classroom, instead of pullout ESL classes. Yet it still focuses on emphasizing the need to teach the students metacognition and content area terminology. In order for sheltered instruction to work effectively in the classroom, the teachers must first be prepared to administer the lesson. Many pre-service teacher programs are working to equip teachers with the skills they need to be successful. Beginning with pre-service teachers achieving a strong foundation of cultural psychology, language theory and acquisition as well as certified content knowledge in their undergraduate major, the courses incorporate multiple field experiences as well as pedagogical methods and cultural diversity instruction. Since the basis of sheltered instruction is to provide a......

Points will be taken off for a failure of your submission to comply with these instructions and provide complete information for your assigned country. (NOTE: links or web addresses are NOT sufficient unless you are specifically instructed. You must copy in the material requested.) However, I do expect there may be some discrepancies in what you are able to find. Do your best to find information that matches the instructions. If there are differences, find the closest match you can. For example, if you cannot find information for each of 3 consecutive years as discussed below, but there is information at some other interval – perhaps every 3 or 5 years, copy in 3 intervals worth. In addition, if for any of the items below you cannot find the requested information for your country, you may then, and only then, find the information requested for a country in the same region. For example, if your country is Vietnam and you cannot find the information requested for Vietnam for one item, you may substitute with the information for Thailand or China. One last note: references are not needed for these answers unless a reference is specifically requested.

...Instructions Your discussion questions are due by the end of the announced time period. Answer the questions below, and type your answers in the “answer box.” Copy and paste the answer box into the discussion board forum titled “My Mother Never Worked.” If you are working with a partner or in a small group, type the full name of each group member into the subject line of your post. Answer Box 1. Answer question one under Purpose and Audience. Write the thesis IN YOUR OWN WORDS. I believe that the point that the writer is trying to prove is that her mother was a hard worker throughout her whole life who never once stopped working regardless of the circumstances or obstacles that she came across. I think that her thesis was never explicitly stated because the telephone conversation stated her thesis well. She stated her essay with the telephone conversation and in the pause between the response of the lady from the Social Security Office she goes back in time and gives a little background of all the jobs her mom had. The writer had a specific question and the lady had a solid answer. At the end of the passage the lady answered her question and gave her the news that she wasn’t eligible for death benefits because her mother never worked according to their records. In my opinion the thesis was in some way written throughout the whole essay when she was explaining all the jobs and task her mom actually had because at the end of the essay you don’t question the...

Information Processing Theory

...There are many different theories of human memory, cognition, and thinking the most researched and articulated theory is the Information Processing explanations (Ashcraft & Radvansky, 2010; Bruning, Schraw & Norby, 2011; Sternberg & Sternberg, 2012) This essay will introduce Information Processing Theories and briefly explain the key concepts and explore the importance of these theories in relation to teaching in the classroom. The significance of these theories in relation to understanding childrens learning and development will be discussed and we will touch on how these theories can be beneficial in developing an educational pedagogy. The strengths and limitations will be identified and reviewed and the key concepts will be critically reflected apon. We as humans process information with remarkable proficiency and we accomplish problematic tasks such and critical thinking, faster and more accurately than some very sophisticated machines. (Halpern, 2003; Kuhn, 1999) Theorists have developed a systematic model of memory, according to Woolfolk & Margetts (p.250) the most common and universally recognised by research is information processing theory, this is a well-documented analysis for examining learning and memory. The information processing theory as defined as ‘The human mind’s activity of taking in, storing, and using information’. (Woolfolk A &Margetts K p.205) Information processing theory is a proposed system of how we: perceive, encode, store and retrieve data. ...

Content Based Instruction

...Content-Based Instruction (CBI) is a significant approach in language education (Brinton, Snow, & Wesche, 1989). CBI is designed to provide second-language learners instruction in content and language. Historically, the word content has changed its meaning in language teaching. Content used to refer to the methods of grammar-translation, audio-lingual methodology and vocabulary or sound patterns in dialog form. Recently, content is interpreted as the use of subject matter as a vehicle for second or foreign language teaching/learning. * | Benefits of content based instruction 1. Learners are exposed to a considerable amount of language through stimulating content. Learners explore interesting content & are engaged in appropriate language-dependant activities. Learning language becomes automatic. 2. CBI supports contextualized learning; learners are taught useful language that is embedded within relevant discourse contexts rather than as isolated language fragments. Hence students make greater connections with the language & what they already know. 3. Complex information is delivered through real life context for the students to grasp well & leads to intrinsic motivation. 4. In CBI information is reiterated by strategically delivering information at right time & situation compelling the students to learn out of passion. 5. Greater flexibility & adaptability in the curriculum can be deployed as per the students interest. Comparison to......

Differentiated Instruction Theory

...Differentiate Instruction Theory There are so many individuals that have different abilities, experiences, and learning styles. Differentiated Instruction is a theory that will help teachers be successful in having all students be successful at learning at their fullest learning style ability. “Differentiated instruction gives a variety of options to successfully reach targeted standards.” (Gregory G.H. & Chapman C., 2007) This type of instruction will help the students meet where they are and offer challenging, appropriate options for them to achieve success. (Gregory G.H. & Chapmen C., 2007) This instructional method is based on research that was created by Russian psychologist, Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934). “Sociocultural theory, drawing on the work of Vygotsky (1962), and later Wertsch (1991), has significant implications for teaching, schooling, and education (Tharp & Gallimre, 1988).” (Subban, P.) The four elements that teachers can differentiate are the following; the content, the process, and/or product as things that are differentiated in a classroom. With this ongoing assessment and flexible grouping it will ensure that this instructional approach can be successful (Readingrockets.org). “The content is what is taught. The way a learner interprets, adapts, and finds ownership is the process. The product shows the learner’s personal interpretation and what they know.” (Gregory G. H. & Chapmen C., 2007) Some examples of differentiating in a classroom is......

Elaboration Likelihood Model

...Elaboration Likelihood Model June 26, 2012 Why do these people have these jobs? Why is this text so disturbing? The Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM) The Elaboration Likelihood Model was developed by Richard Petty and John Cacioppo The ELM proposes two routes to persusaion. The central route involves careful scrutiny of message logic and arguments The peripheral route involves consideration of cues in the message environment such as source credibility and message design The ELM: Which Route do you Take? The ELM proposes that people will take the central or peripheral route based on several factors Motivation. If people see the message as relevant, they will be motivated to process centrally Ability. People must have the ability and be in a situation where central processing is possible The ELM: Outcomes of the Two Routes Messages processed through the central route will lead to attitude change that is relatively enduring, resistant, and predictive of behavior. Messages processed through the peripheral route will lead to attitude change that more temporary, more easily changed, and less likely to predict actual behavior Consider this handout as you work in groups Exploring the Peripheral The peripheral route processes the message without any active thinking about the attributes of the issue or the object of consideration. Recipients rely on cues to make quick decisions, including Reciprocation – in a social universe, turn taking and sharing......
