The people trying to get into their lockers take up a lot of space and the doors swing open into the narrow hallway, knocking students off their feet on numerous occasions. We have also tried to attach wheels to students but some students did not have the coordination to roll around on wheels around the school. Our last resort was to establish the hallways as moving ramps but that also failed to work as technology is not always the most reliable thing and students were constantly trying to break the newly installed
My 7th grade class was given a series of challenges to understand what it was sort of like to be a person with a disability. The hardest challenge was not using your dominant arm to put a shirt on and button it. It was hard being that I couldn’t button my shirt, but some of my classmates were able to button it up and down to get the shirt on and off. I was very sluggish being that I had to restart and make a new strategy to get the shirt on. I was frustrated with the activity where we were not allowed to talk at all, but we had to mouth it.
SHOULD SCHOOLS GIVE STUDENTS HOMEWORK? Do you ever feel so overwhelmed with homework that you wish it failed to prevail? Whether or not teachers should give students homework has evolved into a significant controversy that has been up for debate for decades. It has the potential to affect the lives of students in many ways. Homework is much alike to an ocean full of stress and frustration.
I knew that I should get to work on it when I took theatre because stress and nervousness on stage is probably the worst thing I experienced. My teacher took the class through meditation exercises. I did this in middle school but didn’t really feel the effect until I was older how much more helpful it was to me. Learning about the key ways of dealing with my stress really did help a lot. I did lots of meditation at night, especially the night before tests.
“Even the simplest task can be overwhelming at times.” This quote by Rhonda Bodfield sums up a rather large reason why I struggle in school and everyday situations. Anxiety is the feeling that something bad will happen. Unfortunately, some people experience anxiety every moment of every day and have a very hard time controlling it, which can lead to attacks. Most people only experience it in certain situations that are stressful to them, but not to a large degree.
There are stories flooding the internet of students who have been so weighted down by the amount of homework burdening them and that combined with the stress just caused their mind to seize up until they just broke down and cried. Personally, I used to love school and the concept of learning new things until I came to high school where it was such a high demand and there are other students like me. There are even students who are going through stuff like death of a family member, or risky family life, or even just have bad living conditions that have to learn to forget all those problems until that type of stress sneaks up on them. The fact that they don’t have any time to talk to anybody about their problems because they simply have no time causes them to internalize this pain until they eventually blow up mentally. Teachers usually argue that students don’t have enough time to complete work during the day, and that homework reinforces the things students learn in class.
One or two lab sessions per subject are not maximized and greater experience is necessary to execute the procedures properly in actual practice. Another weakness that concerns me is my lack of initiative. Sometimes I would wait until a certain job is assigned to me before I work for a number of reasons. One is that I am afraid that I might be bothering the other person if I asked for the job and what to do. Another is that I am lazy, and I need pressure to drive me into actually doing the task.
During elementary school, I rarely struggled with the difficulty or workload. When I tested in and attended Whitney M. Young Magnet High School for 7th grade, I was soon overwhelmed by the stress and workload. Because of how independent I was in grade school, I struggled with figuring out how to lessen the stress and deal with it. I rarely approached my parents, because of their lack of knowledge about my coursework. Even though my grades began to drop, I continued to believe that I could handle it on my own.
I struggled with reading and writing for several years due to being labeled with a learning disability. When I was in fourth grade a Special Education teacher would arrive in my mainstream classroom to take me with him into his miniature classroom. Throughout my previous years in elementary school several Special Education teachers had done the same, but it wasn’t until then I began to realize other students didn’t have to go. I went with the Special Education teacher several times a day, whether it was for assistance with the class work or testing modifications. It wasn’t until seventeen years later, when I applied for Hopkinsville Community College, that I was informed I had never been diagnosed by a Psychologist.
Part C - Disability affects development and learning because disability affects children's development in different ways. That can be physically and sensory, social, emotional and behavioural and learning or cognitive. So say a child with Hearing impairment affects language and communication in that they may struggle to understand words in a book and get stressed at trying to read aloud.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, commonly known as ADHD, is the center for a lot of controversy within the medical field. The common argument pertains to whether ADHD is over diagnosed or underdiagnosed. Evidence can be applied to support both sides, but when it pertains to children, studies tended to attest that ADHD is typically over diagnosed. The reasoning for this can be generalized around one idea: misdiagnosis. Symptoms that appear to be ADHD are: inattention, which can be noticed within a child’s school work; hyperactivity, noticing that a child has a hard time sitting still; and impulsivity, referring to frequent interruptions and lack of patience.
