Freud's Stages of Psychosexual Development
Oral stage: Age Range: Birth to 1 Year
Erogenous Zone: Mouth * During the oral stage, the infant's primary source of interaction occurs through the mouth, so the rooting and sucking reflex is especially important. The mouth is vital for eating, and the infant derives pleasure from oral stimulation through gratifying activities such as tasting and sucking. Because the infant is entirely dependent upon caretakers (who are responsible for feeding the child), the infant also develops a sense of trust and comfort through this oral stimulation. * The primary conflict at this stage is the weaning process--the child must become less dependent upon caretakers. If fixation occurs at this stage, Freud believed the individual would have issues with dependency or aggression. Oral fixation can result in problems with drinking, eating, smoking, or nail biting.
The anal stage: Age Range: 1 to 3 years
Erogenous Zone: Bowel and Bladder Control * During the anal stage, Freud believed that the primary focus of the libido was on controlling bladder and bowel movements. The major conflict at this stage is toilet training--the child has to learn to control his or her bodily needs. Developing this control leads to a sense of accomplishment and independence. * According to Freud, success at this stage is dependent upon the way in which parents approach toilet training. Parents who utilize praise and rewards for using the toilet at the appropriate time encourage positive outcomes and help children feel capable and productive. Freud believed that positive experiences during this stage served as the basis for people to become competent, productive and creative adults. * However, not all parents provide the support and encouragement that children need during this stage. Some parents' instead punish, ridicule or shame a child for…...

...WHAT IS CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT?   Classroom management, as applied to teaching, involves everything that a teacher must do to carry out his/her teaching objectives.  It includes preparation of plans and materials, structuring of activities into time blocks, direct teaching of skills and subject matter, grouping   of  pupils to provide for the most efficient use of teacher and pupil time, plans for transition periods--changing from one activity to another or from one place to another--pupil involvement and motivation, and adequate control of pupil behavior. Good classroom management implies not only that the teacher has elicited the cooperation of the students in minimizing misconduct and can intervene effectively when misconduct occurs, but also that worthwhile academic activities are occurring more or less continuously and that the classroom management system as a whole (which includes, but is not limited to, the teacher's disciplinary interventions) is designed to maximize student engagement in those activities, not merely to minimize misconduct. What do good classroom managers do? |   | * They have a set of routines and procedures that they teach students. * They maximize the classroom’s physical space to facilitate easy teacher movement and proximity, as well as student movement and transitions. * They begin the year with a set of class rules or guidelines that they explicitly teach, monitor, and enforce. * They plan well (they don’t wing it). *......

...Something that will pique their interest in the topic and make them want to learn more. For the purposes of this paper, the concept at hand is the interdependence within ecosystems. The ecosystem the students will be studying is saltwater marshes, plants and animals. Teaching this concept in the classroom will be most successful using a combination of a Jigsaw approach coupled with a STAD (student team achievement divisions) approach. The key elements of both the Jigsaw cooperative learning method and the STAD method include breaking students into racially, socio-economically, gender and differing ability groups. In terms of the assignment of salt water marshes, there are three main areas of information to be assimilated: tidal changes, plants and animals. The initial step, in accordance with the STAD model, would be to provide a basic lecture of saltwater marshes, covering facts and disseminating information on each of the three main topic areas. This could include a basic lecture/presentation that included pictures, written information, and other various forms of initial information on the subject. Following the JIGSAW model and supposing a group of 30 students in a classroom, the process would then include breaking students into ten diverse groups, assigning each group of ten one of the three areas of research: tidal changes, plant life and animals. In accordance with the Jigsaw method, each group would then go into their “expert” group and study their assigned......

Flipping a Classroom

...The Flipped Classroom The Flipped Classroom A concept that has become popular is the "flipped classroom." A flipped classroom is a form of learning in which students watch a short video clip as a homework assignment at their own pace. The student can communicate with teachers and peers through online discussions about anything they may not understand. These videos are created by teacher, they are 5-7 minutes long providing information on the idea that a student would usually learn in the classroom. This allows the teachers to act as a coach or advisor during class, encouraging students to work collaboratively to complete activity. In the video, Katie Gimbar stated that the students are able to "pause, rewind, and rewatch" the video for a better understanding (Gimbar, 2011). This approach will lead to positive outcomes in the classroom. The idea of the flipped classroom is to allow more time for active learning, instead of the traditional lecture. "Educational technology and activity learning are two components of the flipped classroom. They both influence student learning environment in fundamental ways" (Strayer, 2011). The idea of a flipped classroom seems fairly easy. The teacher will need to have access to technology in order to record and capture the lesson they want to teach. The first step is choosing a screen casting software, such as Jing or Camtasia. This software will capture anything on you see on your computer screen, as a video, and lets you share it......

...Classroom Management Philosophy ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------          The utmost valuable aspect that creates a good learning atmosphere is classroom management. Without a classroom that is organized and disciplined, learning is close to unmanageable. This is why I believe that it is crucial that a teacher begins a classroom with a well thought out management plan. I think that this plan should just provide a base for the classroom, and should be structured around anticipation, admiration, and stability.             Although discipline problems are expected in any classroom, prevention through set rules and an appealing curriculum can compensate many distractions in the learning environment. I think that as a teacher, an initial discussion of classroom rules and making your expectations clear from the beginning can help students understand what you want from them. Although I don’t think it is necessary to bombard students on the first day with regulations and state what isn’t allowed in the class, I think it’s key to stress what you want out of the class and that the classroom should be a positive learning community for all students.             Additionally, clear and concise rules, good teaching strategies can also help inhibit disruptions in a classroom. When students are engaged in motivating doings and enjoy being in class, there is less chance for outbreaks that disturb the...

Classroom Diversity

...Diversified Students Introduction Vernon-Feagans, Kainz, Amendum, Ginsberg, Wood, and Bock (2012) assert that: looking at an American classroom today, significant changes are notable. The number of students coming from different linguistic backgrounds and cultures has tremendously increased in most public schools. This has posed challenges to classroom a teacher as the bulk of teaching has increased with the accommodation of linguistic and culture diversified students (Gilbert, Compton, Fuchs, Fuchs, Bouton, Barquero and Cho, 2013). This therefore directly affects the performance of such a classroom in respect to methods of teaching applied. Henry, Castek, OʼByrne and Zawilinski (2012) states that: for an efficient and effective teaching of such a classroom, individual needs of each student in such a class need to be successfully met. This then calls for a thorough research on the incorporation of such diversity with an aim of improving on classroom performance (Utley, 2011). This research article being based on this need tries to give precise and easy implementable strategies to help in such a situation. It seeks to assist the teaching fraternity of diversified institutions manage to deliver effectively and with ease on their core mandate. This paper contains strategies for improving on performance in a linguistically diversified classroom. The outline of these pillars appear in this sequential order: acknowledgement of the diversity, connection with the students,......

Classroom Management

...Classroom Management Procedure/ Routines Paper Classroom management is the most essential key to a successful learning environment in the classroom. When effective classroom management strategies are not implemented you take away learning time from your students. There are many important elements to have a productive, self- sufficient classroom. One of the most important elements is establishing procedures and routines in your class. According to Harry Wong, the teacher is the decisive element in the classroom. Therefore, it is up to the teacher to establish discipline and procedures in the classroom to have an effective classroom. The most important element of establishing discipline in your classroom is establishing a discipline plan. A discipline plan is composed of three things; rules, consequences, and rewards. The rules must only contain 3-5 rules, no more than 5. Harry Wong explains that when we begin to give too many rules it becomes a dare to the students to break them. Having a plan is very important, when a teacher does not have a plan it will resort to yelling. Harry Wong states, “ If you don’t have a plan, than you are planning to fail.” According to Harry Wong the number one problem in the classroom is not the discipline, it is the lack of procedures and routines. Establishing Procedures and routines will allow your classroom to be a productive self-sufficient classroom. Therefore, in order to have discipline in a classroom you must have procedures......

Classroom Management

...Classroom Management Plan Description of Setting: I serve as teacher in first grade classroom at Hutchinson Elementary School. The school has more than 900 students of all learning abilities and includes grades 6-8. My classroom will be a place where students feel safe. The classroom rules, designed to assure safety, will be prominently visible in the room. By decorating the classroom with students’ work, the room will be welcoming to the students of all abilities and will make them feel more at home. I believe this is important, because it is easier to learn in an environment where you feel safe and comfortable. Below I discuss the different components of my future classroom in more detail: General classroom arrangement: * My desk will be in the back of the classroom. I will only use the desk for administrative duties, but never during teaching. During teaching, I will either be standing at the black board or circulating about the classroom. I believe it is important to be close to the students and to be up and about at all times, not only to discourage unwanted behavior, but also to show the students that class time is for class business. * The students are arranged in groups of three. This stimulates students to cooperate, but keeps it possible for all tables to face the board in the front of the classroom. It also creates wide aisles between the tables, which makes it easier to circulate about the room. * In the back of the classroom are five trays,......

Outddor Classroom

...The Outdoor Classroom develops gradually from the real needs of children, offers activities that are personally meaningful to them and fully embraces developmentally appropriate practices in early childcare. To nurture the whole child, early childhood education needs to follow the fundamental principle that children are learning everywhere and all the time and that develops by connected to the environment. Instead of developmentally inappropriate early academics, children need a broad variety of learning experiences and opportunities to grow in areas such as gross and fine motor development, social-emotional development, language development, and creative expression. Connecting back to nature and the environment can develop all these domain and skills. Mastery of the skills associated with these areas is critical for healthy development as well as later academic success, and requires an educational format that is very different from a traditional elementary classroom. Studies have shown that not a lot of classroom introduce environment or conduct environment into their lesson. The benefits of having environment are not just with academic success but also as well as physical, cognitive, Psychological and a better understanding of things. For physical benefits the children can experience is an increase in physical development, the ability and capability of activities increased. If the children have a set up of patterns for an healthy, active lifestyle fewer children suffer......

Classroom Confidence

...CLASSROOM CONFIDENCE Brandi Evans William Woods University The dilemma in Keep a Classroom Confidence (globalethics.org, 2014) involves a teacher, Tom, having to make an ethical decision regarding placement of a student in his class. The student has some behavioral issues that at times disrupt the classroom. This classroom has great harmony and much involvement from the parents. Some parents in the class were encouraged by an active mother in the class to go to the superintendent to express their concern of having this student in their children’s classroom. One of the parents tells Tom in confidentiality about the ring leaders plan to get the child removed from the class. Tom would like to go to the superintendent to discuss this specific student, but if he does he knows there is a chance he will have to give the name of the parent who informed him of the concerns and possibly disrupt the harmony amongst the parents involved in the classroom. As a public educator in the school system, Tom is bound to the code of ethics for his profession. There are two codes of ethics in particular that apply to Tom. First is the Code of Ethics for Educators, established by the Association of American Educators. It contains four basic principles relating to the rights of students and educators. (AAE, 2013) The second is the Code of Ethics of the National Education Association. Within the preamble, the NEA states “The educator, believing in the worth and dignity of each human being,...

...Classroom Design In order to have a successful classroom, it is important to have a plan on how you want to layout your classroom. There are certain elements that I believe are important to have in an elementary classroom in order to produce life-long learners. Students spend a lot of time in their classroom which is why I find it important for a teacher to plan the layout and make it their second home. My classroom will have resources and bulletin boards in order to help students master the required skills they need. One thing that I find works best in most classrooms is having the students placed in groups as I believe that students can learn a lot from one another. I would have my classroom in groups of four with four to five students, depending on class size. I believe that it is important to have a classroom rug because it is a meeting area where you can read to students, teach mini-lessons for readers and writers workshop and many other things. The classroom rug should be near the smartboard as many lessons now include technology to enhance the learning of the students. Along the walls of my classroom there will be bookshelves that will include different levels of books depending on the needs of the students. I think it is important to have a variety of books in order for students to develop a love for reading. Also, I would have a white board on my walls to teach whole-group lessons. In addition, on the wall of the back of my classroom would be a computer......

Technology in the Classroom

...Technology in Education: Beneficial or damaging? When you hear the words technology in the classroom or technology in education, what do you think it means? Can you picture students taking a virtual field trip to the Smithsonian from England? Do you envision classrooms filled with laptops for every student? What about students sitting in class reading books on e-readers? In the last couple of decades, technology in the classroom has come a long way from the blackboard, mobile TV carts, or the overhead projector. Some proponents to this new era of technology think it is beneficial while others oppose the advances it has made in education. However, teachers’ stance on technology is mixed. A great example of the division they have toward educational technology, is expressed by Ian Quillen in his article Can Technology Replace Teachers? Some feel technology is a great learning tool since today’s student is a technology junkie and learns better through the use of electronics, while others probably wish it was never developed. Due to budget cuts, teachers in the Eagle County, Colorado school district are being replaced by distance learning courses or videoconferencing. (Quillen, 2012). Those opposing this change feel it will not be as meaningful or as rich as face to face instruction. They feel online courses don’t compare to the discussion students can have with their teacher and peers and the opportunity to ask questions and hear the opinion of others is lost. This...

Classroom Tech

...Smart Technology for Smarter Kids Technology has proven to be a milestone in human development. It is only natural to want to incorporate this technology into our school programs and learning environment, and is now used as a means of instruction in the preschool, primary, and secondary classroom as well as beyond. Is it safe though, for the young, still developing minds of our future? These children, pre-school through primary, are around ages three- to eight-years- old. Many argue computers and other forms of technology have no place in the curriculum; whereas, the validity that teachers whom have incorporated it within the classroom feel it has enhanced the learning environment and overall, the students have developmentally progressed through documented developmental milestones at a faster rate than without the engagement of technology involved. Young children can be marked through developmental milestones; there are a known sequence of landmarks documented from childhood researchers and theorists. Exposure to certain disruption or not being correctly exposed to the applicable ideally guided assistance can prohibit these events from occurring (Feeney, et al, 2010). Technology exposure is inevitable though, especially within this twenty-first century. In addition to the introduction and development of literacy and numeracy skills and a strong emphasis on the shaping and improving of fine and gross motor skills, interaction and socialization are also key components......
