A cornerstone provides a subtle yet paramount role in a building and ensures that REAch2 is a trustworthy, reliable and inspirational organisation, delivering the best possible learning experience. Just as years ago touchstones were used to test the quality of the gold they marked, so too our Touchstones find what is precious and set these things apart. They are used to express the values and ethos of the Trust and describe perfectly what we are known for and how we operate.

GDR "village teacher", a teacher teaching students of all age groups in one class in Jewish children with their teacher in Samarkandthe beginning of the 20th century. The objective is typically accomplished through either an informal or formal approach to learning, including a course of study and lesson plan that teaches skillsknowledge or thinking skills.
Different ways to teach are often referred to as pedagogy. When deciding what teaching method to use teachers consider students' background knowledge, environment, and their learning goals as well as standardized curricula as determined by the relevant authority.
Many times, teachers assist in learning outside of the classroom by accompanying students on field trips. The increasing use of technologyspecifically the rise of the internet over the past decade, has begun to shape the way teachers approach their roles in the classroom.
The objective is typically a course of study, lesson planor a practical skill. A teacher may follow standardized curricula as determined by the relevant authority. The teacher may interact with students of different ages, from infants to adultsstudents with different abilities and students with learning disabilities.
Teaching using pedagogy also involve assessing the educational levels of the students on particular skills. Understanding the pedagogy of the students in a classroom involves using differentiated instruction as well as supervision to meet the needs of all students in the classroom.
Pedagogy can be thought of in two manners. First, teaching itself can be taught in many different ways, hence, using a pedagogy of teaching styles.
For example, an experienced teacher and parent described the place of a teacher in learning as follows: The function of the teacher is to pressure the lazy, inspire the bored, deflate the cocky, encourage the timid, detect and correct individual flaws, and broaden the viewpoint of all.
This function looks like that of a coach using the whole gamut of psychology to get each new class of rookies off the bench and into the game. In primary schools each class has a teacher who stays with them for most of the week and will teach them the whole curriculum.
In secondary schools they will be taught by different subject specialists each session during the week and may have ten or more different teachers. The relationship between children and their teachers tends to be closer in the primary school where they act as form tutor, specialist teacher and surrogate parent during the course of the day.
This is true throughout most of the United States as well. However, alternative approaches for primary education do exist.
One of these, sometimes referred to as a "platoon" system, involves placing a group of students together in one class that moves from one specialist to another for every subject. The advantage here is that students learn from teachers who specialize in one subject and who tend to be more knowledgeable in that one area than a teacher who teaches many subjects.
Students still derive a strong sense of security by staying with the same group of peers for all classes.The California Guided Pathways Project will help 20 California community colleges implement an integrated, institution-wide approach to student success by creating structured educational experiences that support each student from point of entry to attainment of high-quality postsecondary credentials and careers.

1. Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate.
Students take a lead role in understanding and communicating their progress when they reflect on their learning in front of parents and panels of experts.
