By doing so, “The adult can give comfort, support, and advice, even if they can’t solve the problem directly. Encourage the child to report bullying if it happens” (“How to Prevent Bullying”). Another way to effectively target bullying is to impose serious expectations for all students to follow. According to the American Psychological Association, “Teachers and coaches need to explicitly remind students that bullying is not accepted in school and such behaviors will have consequences.” Consequences like suspension, academic probation, and the inability to participate in school events are serious punishments for bullying another individual for an
Her threshold of patience will also be very low and could get easily angry with other students as well. On the other hand, the other students are also heavily impacted by Jimmy’s behaviour. Every child is entitled to an education in a safe and secure environment, which is free from frequent disruptions. When Jimmy displays challenging behaviour and disrupts the class often, tension will build up in class. They could resent Jimmy for his behaviour and thus lead him to be more isolated and without any friends.
There are many ways in which they have to comply, and the employer is responsible for the health and safety procedures and these will vary depending of the type of school, but they are required to carry out risk assessments and suitable procedures for any new situation which may increase the risks for example when on a school trip, comply with, complete and allow access to any appropriate paperwork which could be requested during an inspection under the Act, provide a school health and safety policy and ensure that all staff are aware and understand it. It is vitally important that all areas of the school are safe for children. This includes in addition to those mentioned above ensuring that classroom furniture, PE equipment and other specialised equipment such as that used in chemistry etc. as well as playground furniture are in a satisfactory condition in order to avoid any accidents while learning or playing
He asserts that the high levels of plagiarism would decrease if appropriate punishments and consequences followed the action of not giving credit where credit is due: “Teachers must be vigilant, and students who plagiarize must be punished swiftly and severely” (p. 103). Delvin believed that punishments should be severe as all students have been educated about the issue of plagiarism through scholarly institutions or common morals: “all students instinctively know… that it is wrong to steal someone else’s ideas, words, or facts” (p. 105). Delvin also claims that “[prohibited actions] begin to drop only when increased enforcement and stricter … penalties [are] enforced” (p. 105). Due to the students’ prior knowledge about the subject, one would expect that they would uphold to the regulations. However, as students still continue to plagiarize, the appropriate punishment for their actions should be strictly
Recent legislation requires schools to implement a Response to Intervention (RTI) model that is based on multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). The goal of RTI is to identify students early who are struggling academically or behaviorally and provide appropriate interventions to prevent these challenges from becoming more serious and detrimental to their success. Under the traditional system, students may not receive extra services until a problem becomes severe, and they meet criteria for a special education qualification. RTI helps schools identify children earlier using systematic and scientific universal screeners of all children. Therefore, RTI gives students who are at-risk the opportunity to receive less intensive intervention services,
Joe could have special treatment from the teacher because of this and other children may exclude him. This will affect Joe’s confidence and he may begin to resent learning as he can’t do what all the other children can. A way to keep Joe motivated and enthusiastic about school would be to adapt activities so Joe can also take part and make sure not to exclude Joe from the other children. You need to build up Joe’s self esteem, this way if anyone tries to bully him or make fun of him he will have enough resilience to stand up for
Imagine a classroom where students a caned for getting grades lower than a certain mark and after the exams are caned for falling below the pass mark. It is important to realize that this kind of environment would create fear within the children. Consequently, in this kind of environment where one is punished for not doing well in his or her academics, the student would not be comfortable in making mistakes which are all part of the process of learning. The studies done by Arif and Rafi similarly backs this up. In their research it can be concluded that the pupils who experience corporal punishment do not actually get better, but do worse than those who do not experience it
(Cipani. 2004). If you implement a punishment contingency towards a child's bad behavior you must supplement the reinforcement with punishment in which would be rewarding for the child. Conclusions Therefore, the six basic principles of effective punishment in which are most relevant for consideration when using procedures that may function as punishment to change any child's given behavior where explained how the factors influenced the given contingency to function as a Punisher. Eliminating bad behavior should begin at an early age for a child by implementing the correct punishment and keeping consistent with the behavioral intervention.
This gives the student environment the idea that they are not cheaters or vice versa. First impressions can be made many different ways, but every way makes a stereotype. Cheating in this type of environment raises the assumption of the people that are surrounding you, thus making it harder to get caught cheating. An example of a bad academic environment is someone coming to a conclusion about you by a first impression, but that isn’t going to change. Therefore, you have to abolish honor codes in order to have a true academic
Although school suspensions can be useful whenever a student misbehaves, the punishment can sometimes not even affect the student behavior against other students, limit students from learning new material and passing their grade, and could possibly affect their career life. The reasons that suspension can affect these things is because whenever a student goes home
The two extreme positions either rest on the argument that trigger warnings should be mandatory because victims should not be exposed to traumatizing topics while learning, or that they are detrimental because it coddle students. Both positions need to be examined in order to understand why one side weighs heavier than the other. First, some people argue that these warnings should be a mandatory part of the curriculum for the emotional well-being of students. Trigger warnings are a way for students to have control over an unjust situation where they might feel traumatized. Trauma in the classroom disengages the student and impedes their willingness to learn.
Asking about sensitive topics may make children, parents, teachers uncomfortable. To help reduce emotional or cognitive reactions, it may be important to specify that items are the same for everyone who completes the Conners. However, it is important note that all areas of difficulty need to be assessed even if they are uncomfortable to
The overriding issue presented in this scenario is one of bullying experienced by the less fortunate scholarship student on the grounds of his “scruffy” appearance. The NSW Department of Education and Communities (2016, 1.1) has a zero tolerance to any form of bullying within the learning environment, whether it be physical or psychological. This is exhibited within this scenario as the other students are misusing their more fortunate socio-economic position to bastardize this student who falls outside their circle of acceptance. However, despite their meaningful intentions, educators must take the appropriate steps to ensure that ethical conundrums do not present themselves, whilst bearing in mind both the students wellbeing and maintaining
at 670. Since Mr. Thelaw does not react the same way toward other students who respond to his questions in class, one could conclude that the language he uses toward Ms. Smartpants is not indicative of his normal classroom behavior, contrasting to Yurick, where the court concluded that the Supervisors’ language was considered normal to the work environment. See Id. at 671-672. Thus, Mr. Thelaw’s behavior would likely be considered extreme and outrageous.
If a child or young person alleges harm or abuse, it is important to be aware of the school procedures to be followed for reporting concerns about that particular child. Teacher should also know how to respond if a child discloses anything serious to them. • Listen carefully- If a child talks to me about a concern, or if the child tells me about their abuse I will listen carefully and compassionately to what they tell me. • Stay Calm-It is important to stay calm and not show any extreme reaction to what the child is saying. The child is taking a risk by telling me this so I should ensure that the child 's experience of telling is a positive one.
