Work Trip: Eastern Ranges School-Curriculum, Planning and School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (Day 2)

https://edufolios.org/kzagotsis/work-trip-eastern-ranges-school-curriculum-planning-and-school-wide-positive-behaviour-support-day-2/

The second day at Eastern Ranges was spent sharing and comparing professionally. We spoke about the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and the Victorian equivalent, Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL), how the teachers in both schools plan curriculum and School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support. SACE/VCAL I’m a primary school teacher, so admittedly my knowledge […]

https://edufolios.org/kzagotsis/mentoring-in-practice-video-observations-professional-conversations-and-vicarious-learning/

I’ve been lucky enough to be mentoring a Pre-Service Teacher during her final placement. I didn’t tell Giulia this while she was working alongside me, but my Research Project while at uni was ‘Do student teachers implement the theory that they’ve learned at university while they’re on practicum?’ I’d found….not really.

Creating a Tactile Schedule

https://edufolios.org/kzagotsis/creating-a-tactile-schedule/

Visual Comprehension Assessment T. is a student who finds it difficult to engage with the curriculum.  At the beginning of this year, even getting him from a seated position on the floor, to standing, to walking to the desk and sitting on a chair correctly was challenging.  Once I’d gotten him there, he would often […]

March 2017 Reflection Question: Culture of Learning

https://edufolios.org/kzagotsis/march-2017-reflection-question-culture-of-learning/

Describe the culture of learning in your classroom. How does your use of language, visual aids (classroom displays etc), modelled exemplars etc all send a signal to your students about your level of expectation? At the beginning of the year, the students who had transitioned from other classes showed less independence than the three students […]
