|How do you individualize your teaching? How do you handle the different ability levels of students in classes?
I neve talk down to my students but challenge them to come up to the level I expect of them. Some students can't or don't make the effort, and they just don't do well. Others, however, respond to the challenge and try harder than they have previously.
Planning. Use of peer tutors. Planning. Preparation before class (at home)
Each teacher is distinct and has a unique personality. Same pattern of teaching will not be following the same pattern.I will try my own methods for teaching, of course, conforming to the laid down syllabus. I will also try out metthod which I have found to be useful in my own education.
Just as teachers are having different proficiency levels,the students also have different proficiency levels.While students who are highly capable can pick up things quite fast, weaker students will need special attention. A teacher will have to handle both types of students in the same class.
I will use my ingenuity in dealing with different ability levels of students.
I thinkmy teaching is effective !
I try my best to make it as simple as possible. The best methode I adopt and which I found very effective is that , I explain every simple dout which I had when I was a fresher. I hv noticed that about 90 - 95 % of the students have the same doubts .
Letting students direct their own learning and learn at their own pace, with frequent assessments to track their progress.
I set a basic set of creativioty lessons for the beginner pupils and they all sit together. The more advanced pupils sit at a separate table and I encourage them to set their own goals. I then help them with technical aspects.
J'utilise beaucoup la théorie des intelligences multiples de Gardner. La multiplication des approches, des moments, l'alternance de travail en individuel, en groupe, etc. Je prends toujours le temps de savoir où chacun se trouve par rapport au sujet abordé.
Dealing with different ability levels in a music performance class is all about careful repertoire selection. Students are going to learn the musical concepts that are contained in the music the teacher picks, nothing more. Students can learn a concept like "shifting time signatures" in a piece of music without having to play something that is technically beyond their capabilities. Even elementary level performing groups can learn advanced concepts such as balance and blend, intonation, and phrasing with repertoire that is technically within their experience level.
I individualize my teaching with sectional and solo work. My students work not only on full ensemble music, but on individual solo, duet, and trio pieces. Playing as part of a duet teaches independence and self-reliance. I also arrange a lot of the music the students play myself, crafting the music to be challenging but accessible to the individual capabilities of my students.
I try to give the kids work where they are. For instance, I have had several groups of honors kids cruise through my room, and some were ready for very difficult material while others are less mature. I try to be flexible with time as well. If they need more time working on essays or something I give it to them. Fortunately, my classes are leveled so I get to teach to basically one ability level at a time.
I have a desire to offer different strategies and practices in teaching so that every student can experience success.
student interests guide student generated content in my course. i have the same expectations of all students in the course. I use rubrics, i use peer evaluation and self evaluation. Each and Every student gets individual feedback from me in multiple media throughout the course.
They can be in touch anytime they need through e-mail, facebook, twitter...They can visit me at my office. I talk a lot with students about their learning process.
I learn people's first names and use their names. I make notes of their introduction and call on their opinion in relevent situations. Ability is always a challenge, even with well defined prerequisites. I will ask class mates to help each other but I have no qualms about dividing the class up by skill level and giving them different assignments if the skill level difference is too great to bridge by and untrained instructor.
Teach individuals not classes.
Keeping the class size small so that those who need more instructor time, get it.
