LHRD 2723 Writing Leadership Supplemental Paper
I need support with this Writing question so I can learn better.
NOTE: Review the ‘Discovering how leaders develop’ lecture from this week before answering the questions below.
How leaders develop
According to leadership research, individuals develop primarily through challenging work experiences. A general assumption regarding leader development is that the more challenging an experience is for individuals, the more developmental value that experience offers to individuals. However, do you think challenging experiences can actually hinder development? In other words, do you think too much challenge is bad for development? Provide a specific example and explain your reasoning. Feel free to draw on the real-life leader examples that were mentioned in the lecture notes.
Education & Teaching Conducive Learning Environment Paper
I feel the best way to adapt lesson plans to reach all students is to incorporate all learning styles. For visual students to provide written notes, for auditory students to speak about visual notes, Involve students in conversation with you and each other about the material for verbal and social learners. The conversation must be one where all are free to have a chance to speak and their opinion is respected. For students that learn kinetically have a concrete object that refers to the said topic and pass it around through the classroom, for students who are logical and/or solitary learners have the written notes.
By involving all aspects of learning it allows each student to learn in their own way. It also gives the students the opportunity to involve their own views and cultural experiences, if any, on the subject, which gives the students a sense of community and belonging
The goal for teachers is to bring all students together in order to make the best learning environment possible for everyone. Initially, a teacher needs to know what each student’s learning style is. There are three different learning styles which teachers need to adapt their lesson plans around. The first type is an auditory learner.
These students “store information by the way it sounds, and… have an easier time understanding spoken instructions than written ones” (What’s Your Learning Style, 2011). The second type is a visual learner. These students “understand and remember things by sight” and are able to interpret and picture what they are learning in their mind, and learn best with visuals in the classroom (What’s Your Learning Style, 2011).
The third type is a tactile learner. These students are often called “hand-on” learners “who prefer to touch, move, build, or draw” what they are learning, and learn the best when “some type of physical activity is involved” (What’s Your Learning Style, 2011). I personally relate to this learning style as I can always retain the most information being hands-on.
