Clinical Field Experience B: Behavior Expectations/Trauma/Bullying

Clinical Field Experience B: Behavior Expectations/Trauma/Bullying

Details: Allocate at least 2 hours in the field to support this field experience. Part 1: Observation Request permission from your mentor teacher to observe another classroom in order to see various classroom management styles. Observe a different grade level or different classroom in the same grade level as in Clinical Field Experience A. Spend your first hour observing how the teacher incorporates group motivation and behavior expectations during instruction and/or group activities. Part 2: Collaboration Use the next hour to interview your mentor teacher about group motivation, how he or she sets behavior expectations, establishes safety procedures, and addresses trauma in the classroom. Below is a list of questions to ask your mentor teacher: How do you develop group motivation during classroom instruction? How do you set your behavior expectations in your classroom? In what ways do you communicate with the parents of your students regarding motivation, expectations, safety procedures, and trauma? How have you dealt with bullying in your classroom? Does your school implement any type of bullying curriculum? If so, describe it. In what ways do you prepare your students for safety in your classroom (fire drill, lockdown, evacuation, trauma, etc.)? What traumatic events (lockdown, evacuation, abuse, students’ family member passed away, etc.) have occurred in your classroom/school while teaching? * How did you respond with your students? Ask additional questions and follow-up questions as appropriate. Note: Do not use students’ real names mentioned during the interview. Part 3: Reflection In 250-500 words, summarize the interview, and how the teacher responded to bullying, trauma, and safety in the classroom. Reflect on how you will respond to bullying in your future classroom and when and how you will involve parents. What are some ways you can address bullying with the whole class? Research bullying prevention strategies and share two strategies. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice. Support your strategies with a minimum of two to three scholarly resources. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
