An important point I learned after reading Holler if You Can Hear Me by Gregory Michie is that teachers should care about their students because students will learn more if they know you care and then they will care to learn . Mr. Mitchie believes his students don’t care enough to learn about sexism, but the truth was that they were tired of spending 2 weeks on the same lesson. Mr. Mitchie will then get angry at his class and tell them that if they didn’t care to learn then he wouldn’t make them. In another instant a teacher named Miss. Reilly was tired of her class not listening to her that she threatened to quit, but a student named Samuel wrote her a letter and told her not quit. In another instant Mr. Shepherd was always
This section will examine the history of Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS). Then explain how PBIS is an important addition to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Followed by an in-depth look at what the three tiers of PBIS are and the purpose they serve. Finally the vital role of the school counselor is explored to see whether the counselor would be a good candidate to implement the School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (SW-PBIS) framework.
There are several methods of delivery for school-based interventions depending on the population that they wish to affect, which can result in varying levels of effectiveness. They can be delivered universally or can be targeted towards students identified as at-risk for particular disorders or problem behaviors (Franklin et al. 2012). In universal interventions, all students participate in the intervention, regardless of their level of risk. For example, Bierman et al. (2010) performed a study on a universal SEL program called Fast Track PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies), which was delivered to all students in the first through the third grade. Teachers received training and continued coaching to integrate SEL into their curriculum
The article written by Ashley Griffin and Hilary Tackie “Through Our Eyes: Perspectives and Reflections From Black Teachers” divulges a seldom insight at the roles and responsibilities Black teachers in America take-on in our current education system. It raises an important question about what can be done to attract more teachers of color to get into the education field, but more importantly what can be done to reduce the burden and stress held by Black teachers trying to relieve the plight of black students struggling in our schools.
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,
Since this speech went viral and got positive feedback from many, it is effective in reaching the intended audience, and has potential to create a true change in how teachers treat their students and the education system. Livingston presents a call to action for teachers and future teachers to help their students reach their full potential, help them with their obstacles, and foster equality in the classroom.
In September, the Questar III Board of Education adopted a policy to begin a program assessment and evaluation process for the BOCES. It is important to consistently and continually review our programs and services to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our students and districts, but also to ensure that we offer those services and products at the lowest cost.
You all are searching for your first job. You receive an interview and a few short days later your hired! You work for a month and receive your paycheck, and find that you are only making $7.00 and hour. The United States minimum wage is 7.25 per hour. As Americans we think that this number is truly outrageous. What Americans do not know, is how this measly number compares. In Mexico the hourly wage is below a dollar, Chile 's is $3.00, Estonia is $2.50, Poland, Turkey and Greece all rest at a steady $4.00. All these numbers are converted to U.S. currency, allowing you to see how these countries compare. Now think about working for hours on end, not going to school, barely seeing your family, and possibly living on the streets. This is Poverty. We don 't understand that teens just like us are trying to get jobs in other countries while trying to juggle school, family issues, and keeping up mental and physical health. Poverty is currently affecting teens by hindering the amount of schooling one would receive, and creating poor physical and mental
We are more likely to give out information to one another if we have positive relationships.
This semester, I observed in Ms. Scott’s fifth grade classroom at Thurmont Elementary School. There were about 25 students in the class, and there were more boys than girls. Ms. Scott’s classroom was a positive learning environment for the students. The classroom was very welcoming and decorated with bright colors and posters. In the front of the room, there was a “Wall of Encouragement” where the students could post messages. This wall encompassed the attitude of the classroom. During my observations, I usually observed the science lesson and then the beginning of the writing lesson.

Modern day classrooms were unheard and unseen of more than 50 years ago. If we were to travel back to the past and step foot in classrooms of that time, one theme would run throughout. More than 50 years ago, classrooms were segregated and spoke volumes about the oppression of the colored population. Before the Civil Rights Movement of 1964 and during slavery, classrooms were split up based on color and were limited resources depending on the color of their skin. (Graglia, 2014) Educating colored people wasn’t as important and in some states illegal. Many colored marched with pride for freedom over and over again. This was until May 17, 1954, when the famous case, “Brown v. Board of Education unanimously ruled “separate but equal” public schools for colored people and “white people” and that went against the constitution (Stallion, 2013). This case directly dealt directly with segregation between those of black color and those of white color. It allowed more students to study, work, and learn about each other together. As time went on, this also impacted students to keep studying and motivated students to earn higher education (Stallion, 2013). Assisting to the desegregation between colored people and “white” people, were many great public speakers. One man gave the famous, “I have a dream” speech and risked assassination (Tuck, 2014).
The article “Acting on Beliefs in Teacher Education for Cultural Diversity” by Gay (2010), who is a Professor at University of Washington in Faculty of Education, focuses on educating teachers for cultural diversity in classroom environments, which is frequently discussed but not a well-developed topic. According to Gay (2010), the society we live in has a huge impact on our lives, although we try to ignore or minimize its effect on educational area. There is a huge Eurocentric emphasis in the educational setting that affect students from culturally, ethnically and racially diverse backgrounds, and because of this she thinks that some major changes
