The diversity of student backgrounds, abilities and learning styles makes each person unique in the way he or she reacts to information. The intersection of diverse student backgrounds and active learning needs a comfortable, positive environment in which to take root. Dr. King continues by explaining, “Education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.” From back then to today’s society, kids are failing because they lack those morals that they need to succeed.
Video Response 3 Addressing a student’s needs plays a vital part in the student’s academic success. Understanding one’s needs requires that a teacher take the steps to understanding the child’s personality traits, interests, abilities, disabilities, and so forth. Students are more likely to grasp the interest of learning a specific subject if they feel that the teacher is kind and understanding, just as Trisha and Brittany’s teachers is. Brittany’s mother mentions that a significant change is notable in Brittany’s self-esteem and grades (Kirk, Gallagher, & Coleman, 2015). Trisha certainly associates her good grades to her relationship with her science teacher and identifies her teacher as helpful (Kirk, Gallagher, & Coleman, 2015).
In conclusion, John Gatto’s essay “Against School” is highly against the current educational system in the US and also in many other places that follow the same format that the US has acquired from Prussian culture. Modern schooling is hurting children more than helping them by causing them to fight each other for social standing. It is a brainwash for children and we must teach them to be adventurous, think outside the box, be independent, and develop an inner life so that they will never be bored, even in
Many children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), and the amount of those children being prescribed a medication for their disorder has grown largely in the last couple of years. This caused concern to arise in doctors; some of them went as far to say that most children diagnosed and treated for ADHD are really just immature and undisciplined (Koplewicz). Even if this is untrue, they say that the children would do better if treated with alternative options. Children diagnosed with ADHD are in serious distress, but not because of bad teaching or parenting. It is because their brains work differently than others, and they need to be treated properly.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Mrs. Cooke’s fifth grade class during my clinical experiences. Mrs. Cooke has a great rapport with her students and has very little difficult actively engaging students in learning. One of the “takeaways” from my visit references the students’ and teachers’ commitment to the principles of “The Leader in Me”. From a school-wide perspective, East Elementary School does not practice the traditional positive behavior interventions. Instead, the administration has adopted the ideals and principles behind “The Leader in Me”.
I. Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, more well-known as ADHD, is a disorder that affects 9% of children in the U.S. When left untreated, ADHD can lead the sufferer to be unable to cope in school or socially and possibly leads to depression. ADHD is a hyperactivity disorder with many symptoms that can be treated through therapy, emotional counselling, and use of medications. II. There is a plethora of symptoms when it comes to ADHD. A. Symptoms are separated into two categories, one is inattentiveness and the other is hyperactivity 1.
This concept mainly appears in children who suffer from a preexisting disability. In this sense, children who have ADHD are not able to receive the necessary treatment they need. Without that treatment, whether it be medication, therapy, etc. they will not be able to perform in school and other activities in the way that people without ADHD can. In order to be able to make an assumption about the preceding arguments, it is important to focus on the negatives of both over diagnosing and underdiagnosing ADHD.
In ADHD and me by Blake Taylor gives insight into how struggling with ADHD affects an individual 's life. Not only does ADHD affect the inhabitant but it affects those around them, such as their family, friends, or teachers/co workers. Some may think kids diagnosed with the disorder just seek to be disruptively freely, or not pay attention and be excused for it, however ADHD makes focusing harder for the youth in school, and complicates their social connections. Teachers may punish the child for disorderly conduct when in reality the child is trying to pay attention. When in a classroom setting, if a child shows any signs of complications with their condition they may be subject to bullying or be ostracized from the group.
ADHD affects behaviour and social development in that they get easily frustated, which could be the same children with Autism this affects there Emotional and social development. Dyslexia is a condition that affects learning literacy so what they think they are reading may not be what is actually there so they get stuck with understand letters they may
There is also a short story about Otis Orchards Elementary School on pages 133-134, and explains that the teachers there went through extensive training about how to help children dealing with trauma or problematic home situations. Wedge then goes on to talk about how the children at this school were better behaved and scoring higher on tests after this training had been implemented, essentially arguing that adverse personal lives should be properly dealt with at school in order to combat ADHD-like symptoms. Showing a real-life example of how this training was having a positive impact on children causes the reader
Thompson’s notion of the ‘virtual schoolbag’ is an important one for educators to know. Why? Thompson’s theory of the ‘virtual schoolbag’ provides educators with an invaluable metaphor for the unique experiences, knowledge, talents, interests, challenges and difficulties that each student brings with them to school every day. Children from some socio-cultural backgrounds naturally feel more comfortable than others in the school environment (Thompson, 2002, p.5), the ‘virtual schoolbag’ highlights this disparity and can assist educators to enact a more relevant curriculum, in an environment that feels more inclusive to everyone. Diversity must be celebrated alongside similarities in order to provide all children with truly equal opportunities
The work he produces in therapy has improved significantly, as he is able to produce legible handwriting in and outside the classroom. Dominic’s occupational therapist will be discharging him from occupational therapy, as well as declassifying him. His general education teacher reports that he is meeting grade level expectations in most academic areas. Furthermore, he interacts appropriately with his teachers and classmates. Overall, Dominic is a student who is functioning well academically and socially.
According to Lavoie:”About 10-20 percent of those with ADHD are the hyperactive-impulsive type. The most common type of ADHD, though, is a combined inattentive and hyperactive type” (Lavoie, pg. 45). The hyperactive-impulsive type is the one most commonly associated with academic troubles. This is also widely believed to be the more common type of ADHD. While the school system cannot mandate a parent place their child on ADHD medicine there is still a fair amount of pressure felt by parents/caregivers to do so once their child is diagnosed with ADHD.
