My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
Other pros of the honor code is it actually works in some cases. It gives students a feeling that they are trusted and cant let their professor down. The students as well have the peer pressure of their fellow students into doing the right thing. So if the majority of students respect the honor code, the rest will follow. In Source F it backs up my view with this statement “Unlike the majority of colleges where proctoring of tests and exams is the responsibility of the faculty and/or administration, many schools with academic honor codes allow students to take their exams without proctors present, relying on peer monitoring to control cheating.
Recently, another example of someone admitting their faults was seen. Ms. Shumaker, our vice principal, during an assembly claimed responsibility for some of the problems see through the new midterm exam policy and took action to try and correct it so as not to penalized for her mistake. This not most likely hurt her pride a little bit but the result was that students and faculty probably see her as more trustworthy and fair now and also students who would be affected by her mistake are now not punished for her actions or lack of them therefore. Her owning up to her mistake and then trying to fix it have proved her to be a good person. In my eyes she has shown herself more trustworthy and honest and I'm now more likely to trust her
However, she was able to provide a precise reason for that, saying that as it is still a good idea, since it concerns the issues of the whole class, but not individual students. In addition, she states, that however there is a vast amount of ready-made materials available, it would be better for a teacher to construct the test for his class on his own. There is also a very important issue to bear in mind. It is that it is crucial for a teacher not to ask too direct questions, so that students’ would not aim to reach expected or desirable results. The author could produce bright academic work, which is full of content.
I agree with Professor Marcus Crede’s assessment on grit as it 's nothing new in education terms, simply repeating what we’ve been told at school over and over to have grit and keep working, but the importance of grit has been exaggerated. For example, in the article Crede states “ People with monomaniacal obsession and super powers of dedication are not the only model for success.” Opposing Duckworth’s claim on the importance of grit, grit may have some effect on success, but you cannot correctly measure it, as some may not care about school and have grit towards something else showing on paper that they won 't accomplish anything big when in fact you can 't test that. The study’s done with grit are nothing new or groundbreaking as they
On the opposite side of the spectrum, problem posing encourages communication. In this style of education, there is an evident student-teacher relationship in which both the student and the teacher are being taught. Students are being challenged by the teachers, but at the same time, there is a conversation involving feedback allowing the teachers to grow (Freire 222). These forms of education contrast dramatically, however there may be situations in which one form is more useful than the other, for instance in a STEM class versus a humanities course. While banking may have its benefits in some areas of study, it often leads to boredom and a lack of interest for students in an environment that should be fostering knowledge and thinking.
The students would constantly test teachers to see how much they could get away with and once they figure out the teacher’s tolerance the reputation memo spread throughout the school. Teachers who were stern tend to have well-behaved classes with little to no disruptions whereas the friendlier teacher was constantly calling the principal and dealt with disrespectful students on the daily basis. It was remarkable how as a student I could tell the difference and determine which classes would be easy and which I would need to focus in just from the amount of politeness a teacher
One of the things that impressed me about Katlyn’s autoethnography was her honesty, especially when she talked about her denial about having anxiety. I also commend her for choosing to write her paper on this topic. There tends to be an unfair stigma associated with any kind of mental illness. I’m sure that Katlyn might have been a little fearful about talking about her problems in front of classmates who could potentially judge her for her struggles. However, I think that college students tend to be more accepting of people who struggle with anxiety and depression because many of us have struggled with some form of these issues throughout our college careers.
For instance, performance concerns, external pressure, unfair professors, and lack of effort. Those are just some of things that cheaters use to justify their cheating. Before you can end cheating you have to understand their thought process. “It is important to understand what motivates students to cheat because having alternative solutions to the pressures that lead good students to be dishonest may be helpful as you work to encourage your students
Bruce Scott stated that studying with other classmates can help improve a nursing student’s success. Although, this type of studying can be very beneficial to many students, there are definitely students out there that can’t study in a group because it could be a distraction to them, like myself. They would rather study and learn the material on their own because they can get more accomplished rather working together in a group. Another difference between myself and the author on the understanding of nursing is through stereotypes. The Author talks about how, “it is important for a nurse to be aware of the influence her own stereotyping has on patient care” (Scott, 2009, p. 23).
