2. Methodology. Once you have selected a model of teaching, think of the various teaching methodologies presented within this model that would be most effective for the student. (Be sure the methodology you select is from the Model of Teaching you noted in the previous response.) You may want to look up information about each of the methodologies noted in the PowerPoint so you have more information to help you decide. Which methodology would you select? Why? Support your ideas with citations from your text, Class Packet and from other videos and lectures for SPD604. As previously mentioned, I would choose the Humanistic Psychology Model of Teaching which is also associated with Rogers “Child Centered Learning”, to better serve Ray. Child Centered Learning emphasizes the active participation of the student while the teacher takes the role of coach. Essentially the classroom becomes a “collaborative environment, where the students are given choices of how and what they learn, encouraging them to find a direct connection between the instructional material and their own interests and real-world experiences” (Richmond, 2015). Ray is a visual/kinesthetic learner and should be able to use his interests as a motivation to connect curriculum to his own life. He is very interested in motorcycles; it would be useful to tailor a lesson or even an essay topic to encourage him to practice his writing skills. This method also promotes peer learning &

In order to have a personal theory regarding human behavior one must understand the different behaviors through the principals of psychology. Similar to a fingerprint, people are unique and their behaviors/personalities are all different. A person’s personality can have emotional impact in reference to the way they act, speak, react to different situations and the lives of people that they are involved with. Relationships can also be influenced by the way a person behaves and the personality they portray.
There are many types of Physical Education, but the one I am going to talk about today is Humanistic and Social Development, and how it relates to Physical Education. First off, the primary objective of early physical education programs was a person’s physical health. Humanistic and social development emphasizes self-awareness and choice as a basis for personal growth. With a humanistic approach, there is a connection between physical education and a person’s social and emotion well-being.
When I declared a psychology major during the second year of my undergraduate career, my objective was to attend medical school and eventually become a psychiatrist. I enjoyed the psychology classes in which I was enrolled and found them to compliment the premed curriculum I also wanted to study. I reasoned that a major in psychology would provide insight that could later be useful in my planned studies of psychiatry. Although I decided against going to medical school, psychology remained the primary area of focus of my studies with the ultimate career goal of becoming a clinical psychologist. While my long term professional plans include achieving a PhD and becoming a clinical psychologist. Pursuing a masters degree in
Personality is looked at everyday purposely and accidently. Whether you are judging how your new professor for the semester will be, or if you are studying your best friend for a project, personality is studied abundantly. While there are many ways to define personality, there is not a worldwide definition around. Personality is the unique combination of patterns that influence behavior, thought, motivation, and emotion in a human being (boundless.com). That is one of many ways of defining personality. When examining personality, there are four main approachable theories including: The Psychodynamic Approach, The Trait Approach, The Social-Cognitive Approach, and The Humanistic Approach.
In the education world of today, it is understood that one can only be effective in teaching by taking into consideration the different learning styles of students. In a classroom, it is expected that teachers would want their students to acquire a meaningful knowledge base, become proficient problem solvers and learn how to work productively with others (Biehler and Snowman, 2006, p. 370). If this is the case, teachers need to know how to be able to develop this situation in the classroom and make it more conducive to learning. Therefore, it would seem that they need to encourage students to converse with each other with group discussions and assignments, to make sure they are active in
There are many different theories of how people learn and in considering their application to how students learn and how teachers teach; educational programmes must be of holistic value. Learning according to the humanistic theory speaks to the holistic value that must be communicated through the process of acquiring new
Consider the variety of learners in your class who may require different strategies/support (e.g., students with IEPs or 504 plans, English language learners, struggling readers, underperforming students or those with gaps in academic knowledge, and/or gifted
The Humanistic theory is one that is easily applied to helping-careers due to its approachable and client-focused nature. Concepts such as the hierarchy of needs and person-centered therapy become essential tools for a future licensed clinical social worker. As a social worker, one must also be able to understand how this theory, specifically the hierarchy of needs, affects individuals and the way it influences the choices they make in their everyday lives. Additionally, focusing on families, specifically immigrants, includes interacting with people of different ages, understanding each person’s motivation needs, and findings ways to help them improve their situation through therapy. Lastly, a social work career may lead to a supervisor position
The focus of this paper is the person-centered approach, which is the understanding of personality and human relationships in psychotherapy and counseling in the areas of client-centered therapy, education of student-centered learning, organizations, and other group settings. Even though psychoanalysis and behaviorism have made major contributions to psychology, it has influenced the understanding and practices of the humanistic movement, specifically with the therapies for the different mental disorders. Psychoanalysis understands the unconscious behavior, behaviorism focuses on the conditioning process that produces behavior. Humanistic psychology focuses on the person's potential to act as a whole person in a nurturing environment by
An elementary teacher establishes a student’s educational foundation through leadership and commitment, and in order to do so effectively, time and patience is a necessity. First, a teacher must engage in the students’ learning by inviting them to share their thoughts, opinions, and ideas, while actively listening and providing feedback. Furthermore, peer interaction should be encouraged to supplement the course material. Finally, teachers should explain concepts thoroughly and cater to each child’s learning style, while encouraging the students to envision new ideas and think “outside the box.” After completing the subject matter, performance should be evaluated to determine concept mastery and evaluate teaching methods. Psychology then
Humanistic theory moved away from the Freudian premise of humans needing to "find fault and repair" and with Maslow (1943) as the conceptual founder, began to place emphasis on the positive, arguing that humans (once their basic needs are met) are essentially motivated by the ultimate goal of self actualisation; to realise their fullest potential and be the best that they can be. Additionally, humanistic theory promoted a more logical, pragmatic approach in studying the whole person. Issues were viewed through the eyes of the individual who was experiencing them, the focus being on positive and satisfactory outcomes rather than identifying the source of negative attitudes and/or
Humanistic psychology was created as a response to the limitations of the two forces already established, psychoanalytic and behaviorist psychology. One of the biggest differences between humanistic psychology and the other disciplines is that it views humanity in a holistic and optimistic manner rather than in fragmentations. One of the most significant and founding theorists of this humanism force was Carl Rogers. His contributions to the field, research on personality, and his psychotherapy techniques continue to expand and influence many researchers, psychologists, and counselors.
Historically, humanism finds its roots in the mid-20th century. Abraham Maslow developed his hierarchical theory of motivation in 1943. Carl Rogers published person centered therapy in 1946. In the 1950’s, Maslow and Clark Moustakas invited others to meetings among other psychologists interested in forming an association dedicated to a more humanistic perspective.
