The way people learn is very different. Some people need a strict and tough learning environment; others need praising and soft words. The teacher is the most important object in peoples learning process. One bad teacher in a subject can ruin the whole subject for the student, where it before was their favourite subject. It is the teacher who explains the subject so the people studying ex.
According to Stipek (2002), a correlation has been found with children who are not doing well academically and their poor relationship with their teachers. Having been constantly reprimanded in class could begin a negative association between the two. On the contrary, those who have a nurturing relationship with their teachers have better attitudes with academics and performance. Tyler & Boelter (2008) affirmed this association between a positive student-teacher relationship and high academic gain whereas a negative relationship could result in decreased academic performance. Moreover, Walker Tileston (2004) stated that the classroom environment especially that of the teacher’s influences their act of cheating during exams, their decision on dropping out and the decline of the student’s motivation and academic success.
Journalist Mark Frauenfelder once wrote, “In school, we learn that mistakes translate into bad grades. This unfortunate lesson gets burned into our brains, and we go through life shunning challenges that might end in failure” (Frauenfelder 1). Students around the world are told by their teachers, parents, peers, and/or elders that if they do not meet a certain percentage or grade in their classes, they will not succeed in their lives. Students who do not have good grades are seen as less intelligent than students who do have good grades. This opinion gives students the impression that if they earn a bad grade in a class, they are considered unintelligent and are failures.
Bad teaching, Henry Adams is telling us, ruinz everything for everybody! But this is not what people think is happening, is it? A teacher is expected to teach truth, and may perhaps flatter himself that he does so, if he stops with the alphabet or the multiplication table, as a mother teaches truth by making her child eat with a spoon; but morals are quite another truth and philosophy is more complex still. A teacher must either treat history as a catalogue, a record, a romance, or as an evolution; and whether he affirms or denies evolution, he falls into all the burning faggots of the pit. He makes of his scholars either priests or atheists, plutocrats or socialists, judges or anarchists, almost in spite of himself.
4. The inferior organization of the teaching material. 5. The teacher being unapproachable, self-centered, biased, condescending and insulting. Through their research, they got the conclusion: negative teacher behaviors are regarded as the core of students’ demotivation.
I do believe that some teachers do in fact criticize a student based on their label, and the consequences for that reflect in the child’s progress in their class. Take for instance if a child was labeled as lazy, and the student failed to turn homework in, and instead of asking if the student needed help understanding the work, they just looked the other way and let the student fail instead of trying to help motivate them. I honestly think Karl Subban said it best when he stated, “the problem is when in the school environment, is when we start teaching the label, instead of the child”(The Pros & Cons, 2010). I feel this is exactly right, teachers should teach the students not the label each student has. Yes, labels are beneficial at times, however a teacher shouldn’t base his or her expectations for any particular student based on that
Ulug at.el (2011) further added that student generally describes teacher negative attitude as demeaning, revengeful, too controlled, uninterested, favoritism, being angry, not caring, being intolerant, not understanding and being inconsistent. 2.3.2 Student perception on what causes’ lecturer negative attitude (a) Poor professional training Teaching is lecturing that creates an atmosphere in which deep learning outcomes for students is encouraged and where superficial attitudes to learning are discouraged (Chireshe, 2011). Learning atmosphere should be made favorable for the student because it does not help much experiencing subject pleasure and having to deal with a stressful lecture, that leads to student 's being unmotivated. Lecturer 's destructive and unprofessional
These friends suffer ridicule of their teachers as well as their classmates. However, they affirm to reform the patriarchal and traditional system of education. They dislike the traditional teaching method, which was as old as the college itself. All the students take the subjects just to get good grades not to get knowledge. It means they give more importance to grades instead of knowledge.
A decision making process that is likely to raise some concerns is the personal tactic of decision making. This is where the school principal makes all the decisions in the school. As a result, teachers feel discouraged and unmotivated (Wong, Ormiston, & Tetlock, 2011) .Through scenarios like these ones, good teachers are likely to seek transfer letters, contributing to poor academic performance in the school. Dysfunctional structures are as a result of the poor decision making by the school leader, who in this case is the principal. Possible solutions to the problem of poor academic performance in schools begins with a proper plan that aims to restructure the school’s organizational arrangement.
Teachers are motivated when their reward is related or linked to their performance or contribution, and when it is perceived as fair and equitable. It is widely recognized that the motivations residing behind teacher’s action profoundly shape the nature and quality of those actions and their effects on young people. A de-motivated teacher is always absent from duty, arrive late at place of work, ineffective in class, hence cannot deliver up to expectation. He or she has low morale and as such may seek alternative employment opportunity, terminate employment and/or engage in corrupt practices. It is the student who suffers the end result of this behavior of the teacher as they get all kind of punishment from such teachers.
