The blue eyed – brown eyed experiment in my opinion is indeed ethical. The issue at hand with this experiment is will it cause permeant future psychological damage. Jane Elliott conducted this experiment with her third-grade students which some would say it is too harsh of an exercise for a group that young; She wanted to teach her student that discrimination is wrong which have been a topic they discussed from the first day of school but felt the student would become confused with the fact she just honored Dr. king in the month of February and now she had to explain to them that he was assassinated because of discrimination. Jane Elliott agreed that this exercise can do Psychological damage if not conducted correctly but the benefits are remarkable.
Our educational system is failing us. The United States of America is supposed to be the “greatest” country in the world but statistics are showing that our government/educational system is failing us; children/young adults of the nation. Being a student of a middle ranked school in Arizona, I personally have had a first-hand feel for how good and/or bad teaching affects students. Just in high school I have had teachers that would just assign websites as our lesson and even teachers that sit at their desk for the whole hour; don’t even go over the mindset, homework, and maybe only show one problem so that we’ll know what the homework will be like. Until sophomore year I didn’t even know the differences between you’re, your, too, and to.
Standardized tests are tests that students take globally, and yearly. Students try to cram in weeks and years of knowledge in just to get prepared for theses tests. Is this is a healthy lifestyle for students? Schools should eliminate standardized tests. First, standardized tests cause stress among students.
Jane Elliot, an elementary school teacher from a small, predominately white town in Iowa, brainstormed an experiment focusing on racism and the effects of discrimination on individuals. After the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, Jane Elliot felt it was a perfect time to try this experiment when her students questioned why one would want to murder their “hero of the month.” To explain the reasoning of King’s assassination to the students, Mrs. Elliot created a two-day experiment to teach them a very important and unforgettable lesson on discrimination. Mrs. Elliot divided her class up based on the eye color of her students; the first day children with brown eyes were the inferior group that had to wear collars in order to clearly identify they were the “bad group,” while all the students with blue eyes were superior. On the second day the roles were reversed.
Charlie can’t choose if he is smart or not, it’s not his decision he finds out later in the book. One day in Spring Charlie’s teacher decides to enter him into a research project with more people with disabilities similar to Charlie’s. Charlie goes to the testing facility and does some test to see if he is eligible, and if he is what they are looking for. Charlie hopes and prays to be chosen, he knew he could not give up, even if his first set of test did not go as well as he wished. His prayers are answered when his teacher tells him that he is going in for further testing to make
The study was to see which cadets would stay and which would drop out. At the spelling bee, Duckworth wanted to see which kids would advance further in the competition. When it came to the rookie teachers, Duckworth wanted to know which ones would still be there at the end of the year and which ones made an improvement on the learning of the students. Duckworth states “In all those very different contexts, one characteristic emerged as a significant predictor of success. And it wasn’t social intelligence.
They were asked to reflect upon the documentary on if it was the participants fault or the Milgram fault on why they reacted the way they did. At the end of the questionnaire, there was a separate page on which participants were asked to leave their e-mail addresses if they were interested in volunteering as trainers in civil courage training at local schools. Forty-four percent left their e-mail address to be contacted about volunteering in civil-courage training in schools. students were more likely to leave their e-mail address and therefore more likely to get involved with a volunteering program when they had reflected on the Milgram experiment as represented in the film in terms of the personal responsibility of Milgram’s participants. In study one, we saw more negative affect after watching the film being related to an increase in feelings of personal responsibility this suggests an emotionally activating element of watching a film about the Milgram experiment.
This year, I applied to be a teacher's assistant with my favorite AP teacher, thinking it would be an easy credit. Little did I know, it would turn out to be an important learning experience for myself. The first week of school our conversations consisted of casual small talk. As time progressed I started to open up to him about problems in my life; my parents recent divorce, my long term depression, and my obsession with my grades. My teacher sympathized with me, telling me his own struggles growing up with his parent's divorce, his battles mental illness, and his poor grades.
“In a 2012 study titled Playgrounds and Prejudice, researchers from the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network asked a national sample of elementary-grade teachers if they included LGBT examples when teaching about family. Eight of 10 said no.” It has been six years from this from this study and stereotypes are still a prominent in the classroom. Racial or ethnic stereotypes, gender stereotypes, and Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, (LGBT), stereotypes are just three examples of the stereotypes that could be identified in a classroom. Ethic stereotypes are apparent the case study that 285 students were asked to read. To celebrate diversity, the school’s Diversity Committee sponsored a Multicultural Day.
There is an example used about cheating on a high-stakes test in Chicago public schools. The public schools that have the lowest test scores have a risk of being shut down, then the teaches with the lowest score could possibly fired. The teachers were given incentives to cheat, when the teachers would cheat it would inflate their student’s scores, the teacher’s could have cheated by changing the students answers or even giving the students the answers. The Chicago public school system had investigators look into repeated patterns on students answer sheets, whether is was repeated letter answers or just a spike in test scores from the previous year. In over 200 classrooms per year, teachers were cheating for their students.
The student that I chose to work with has 3 goals that I am monitoring. Each goal has 2 parts, so in reality, I am monitoring 6 things with his goals. Below is each of the goals and a summary of what I am doing with the student and how the student is responding to the interventions. Goal 1: In 36 weeks **** when given instruction and practice, will demonstrate his ability to interact with adults and peers by using appropriate communication skills while expressing his feelings, his needs, and seeking help in a positive fashion 80% of observed times. The student was not making progress using his current BIP, so as a team, we started a new BIP.
