Mrs. Arling uses effective strategies by letting the aid, anna, know exactly what she wants done during the math lesson. She instructs the aid to help the students during the lesson, but not to give them the answer. She wants her to make check marks by the student’s name that she helped so Mrs. Arling can know who did the work by themselves and who needed some guidance. Mrs. Arling demonstrates “wittiness” by knows what is going on all the time such as; when Ricky’s shoe is untied, why Kyle isn’t playing with the others, when Margo is arguing, when Luke is upset both times; during the math lesson due to not being able to use the green color pencil and during snack time when Russell got two smaller pieces of brownies vs the other students only getting one large piece. Mrs. Arling could, keep her class calm and focus on the learning environment. During this study, I read Mrs. Arling taking the time to notice different situations going on throughout her classroom.
Erikson’s Stages of Psychological Development:
Erikson’s Stages of Psychological Development has 8 stages; Trust vs. Mistrust, Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt, Initiative vs. Guilt, Industry vs. Inferiority, Intimacy vs. Isolation, Generativity vs. Stagnation Ego, Integrity vs. Despair. The stage of psychosocial development that these students are likely to be in Industry vs. Inferiority, stage of Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development. The stage occurs during childhood between the ages of five and twelve. Children are at the stage where they will be learning to do things on their own. This is proved in the case when the math lesson is being taught, and Mrs. Arling has the aid to help the students, and check mark which student needed help. Mrs. Arling is aiding positive resolution in the different crisis for this stage because during the math lesson later that day she is wanting the children to do their own work so they can build competency and be confident in what they are doing for themselves. The students will start to pay attention more and the quality of their work all show. In addition to these strategies you can do to help this age group with psychosocial development would be to focus on achievement. They could relate a list of classroom chores that need to be done one a weekly basis; discuss and post these rules around the classroom.
