We didn’t even know what racism was until the 4th grade. I was the only white child in the class, Mrs. Young was black and didn’t like me because I was white, which she told me repeatedly. She even failed me in spelling because she said she couldn’t read my “white girl scribbles”. After that I thought racism was something between blacks and whites. Then later that year I came home from school confused and upset about the new boy at school.
In 1960 she was the first black child to walk and go to William Frantz School an all white public school. During the time she went to school it wasn’t the best time of her or her families years. She was six when she first went there and the things she went through no child should have to face what was waiting for her. (6) The government had to walk with to school, because of the people who disagreed with this. People were threatening her and her family.
Higher value of mean test score for those identified as Bully by teachers in comparison to those identified as Non-bully for each Response category tends to imply face validity of the test. t -ratios for testing equality of means and F- ratios for testing equality of variances between bully and non-bully groups for different response categories are given in Table – 2 Observations i) Mean test score for the combined group declined steadily with reduction in number of response categories. Difference of mean scores between i-th and (i -1) th response categories (for i =5, 4, 3) were found to be significant. Similar trends were observed for the Bully group as well as for the Non-bully group. Mean for Bully group was more than the same for Non-Bully group for each response category.
29 Sept. 2016. In this video, Angela Leed Duckworth explains to us that when she taught 7th graders, she noticed that IQ was not the only difference between her best and her worst students. Her best performing students didn’t have good IQ scores and her smartest kids weren’t doing so well. After several years of teaching, Angela came to the conclusion that what we need in education is a much better understanding of students and learning from a motivational perspective. She left teaching to go back to school and become a psychologist in which she studied kids and adults.
Poor sanitation and hygiene is responsible for causing over 1800 deaths annually in children. One of the many practices applied to fight the epidemic is the game Health Guess in which children are lined up into teams and the instructor acts out a specific hygienic practice without the use of words, meanwhile the children are asked to determine the healthy practice and match it with the cards across the room. Once the kid finds the correct card, he is asked to return to the end of the line, hence the cycle repeats. In the end, the children are asked to reflect on the activity which is significantly vital as it allows the children to understand how to use these essential
Racial inequality is happening in schools, when police are on searches for suspect, and health care. By all means, U.S. citizens still live in a society where racial injustice is still prevalent; therefore, some people are denied equal rights based on race. To begin, racial injustice is happening in school and some students are not being treated equally. Taylissa and Jayla are two of only a few black students in the high school of just under 400 students in rural Nevada. According to the article “2 Teens Say No One Stopping Racist Bullying in Nevada Town” from US News, the author mentions, Taylissa's mom, Nancy Marriott-Tolliver and stepfather, Charles Tolliver, say Taylissa and her stepsister, Jayla Tolliver, both 14, have been the victims of repeated racial bullying at school ( ).
I love the idea of the eye color experiment. She constructed the experiment very well by picking out some of the flaws that the blue eyed kids had. For example, the teacher asked one of the brown eyed kids if his father had kicked him and he responded by saying yes. She then asked “Well do you think a blue eyed father would kick his kids?” This got the kids thinking about how realistic this situation was. Like “maybe this is real” or “Wow, we are better than the brown eyed kids.” Later on in the school day, one of the kids punched a blue eyed kid because he called him, who was blue eyed, brown eyed.
It kinda shocked me how schools actually want those students to fail based on their ethnic, racial, and sexual identities. Schools are known for helping all students achieve their academic career. There is also this one part where a student was interviewed and said that school staffs often watch students of color and treat them differently from whites. I feel like all students should be treated fairly and equally so that they can feel safe and comfort in schools and around their
I have one student that is very hard on themselves when they get an answer wrong so when teaching I try to make things as positive as possible. I have taught a Social Studies lesson, a math Lesson, and an English Language Arts lesson. The social studies lesson was a hard lesson to teach because they do not teach Social Studies in Raytown, the kids were unfocused and I feel like the lesson would have been better if they had an Idea about what was going on but I tied the best I could to build some background knowledge. The size of the district really shocked me seeing that there were 19 schools that served 9,000 students was a baffling number. Talking about massive numbers I wouldn’t was the child to feel like they are just a face in the crowd I want to make these children feel like they are an important part of
attaining girls did not put themselves forward to answer questions. Nonetheless, if a boy is low attaining he is stereotyped as a behavioral troublemaker. There are also studies which have also shown that when girls performed academically better than boys, a strong link was made to their background at home. For example, the kind of schools they attended from a young age, with whom they lived, and their parents’ occupation. Therefore, gender discrimination among school children needs closer investigation.
