Hi, I've been asked to do a reflective account and need urgent help!
it's based on the following:
when I have had a proactive lead in supporting children and colleagues
how I accept new actions for activities to meet children's needs
how I show respect for children's individuality
how I treat all pupils equally throughout the school

Can someone please help and give me some examples. Thank you.

OMG - what a hideous task.

The first is probably the easiest. It just needs rephrasing. When have you helped children or colleagues without being told to do so? e.g. You helped a student solve a problem or did some reading with them, or you offered to make some resources or do some photocopying for a colleague.

The second makes no real sense. As a teacher you should be attempting to meet the children's needs without being actioned into doing it. It is a given. However, it is basically talking about differentiation. So how might you have stretched a higher ability child or helped support a lower ability child. e.g. did you break down a problem for a low ability kid or did you have some extension tasks of a HA kid.

As for the last one - well, in a classroom situation, you can use random name pickers to ensure all students get an equal shot at answering questions. You could do a mini-project on the difference between equity and equality and then get kids to either demonstrate or suggest ways of demonstrating these qualities. When questioning, you can get students to call out who will answer the next question and alternate between boy and girl etc etc.

Good luck with this one!
