Collegiality among teachers plays an important role when ensuring that there is moral and emotional support during difficult times. Fullan (1991a), espouses that the school culture can determine teacher’s attitude toward change. How teachers are able to work with other teachers is critical, given that change requires a lot of interactions among teachers to learn something new and this is the foundation to good learning culture. Teacher isolation is not desirable as it means a fast burn out and stagnant teaching methods. It hampers development of ideas and impedes growth.
Social responsibility plays huge role in school culture. Teachers have less faith in students that lack social responsibility. When teachers don 't believe in the student’s success, it affects the teacher ability to teach and it affects the relationship between the students and teacher. For example, a teacher wouldn 't try as hard to explain a topic in class believing that the students have no ability to succeed. Also, teachers don 't take the student’s education as serious because they believe that there is no point of wasting time to try to explain something thoroughly to a student.
They could resent Jimmy for his behaviour and thus lead him to be more isolated and without any friends. Their learning will definitely be affected also because most of the time lessons are stopped to deal with the disruptive behaviour. Administration have the duty to ensure that the school is a safe and healthy environment for teachers and students. The promotion of positive behaviour in the classroom and school is necessary if these outcomes are to be
Classroom management is the process by which teachers and schools create and maintain appropriate behavior of students in classroom settings. When classroom-management strategies are executed effectively, teachers minimize the behaviors that impede learning for both individual students and groups of students, while maximizing the behaviors that facilitate or enhance learning. Classroom management is really hard and there are many theorists that talk about it and each is different from the other where each theorist has his/her own ideas and thoughts. Some of them are mentioned below. In Redl and Wattenberg 's theories, they encompass group dynamics, self-control, the pleasure-pain principle, and understanding reality.
Parents play an important role in their child’s education because they influence their child’s social and cultural development. Despite shaping their children, parents from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds do not participate in school activities (Hawley & Nieto, 2010). For that reason, teachers come to a conclusion that these families do not value education. However, this is a misconception because there are ethnicities that value education (Hawley & Nieto, 2010, p.71). The explanation for low parent participation is because they feel “unwelcome and uncomfortable in school” (Hawley & Nieto, 2010, p.70).
Allowing children to learn to think critically helps them to solve problems and have a logical argument about something they believe is true. Applying critical thinking into schools gives a child a chance to make a difference. Also, Elizabeth McKinstry agrees with Hummell in challenging the next generation to think for themselves. McKinstry writes about how Common Core education helps children become more interactive in the world and teaches them how to apply the knowledge they have learned in life. McKinstry said, "Their reality is not connected to a world outside the boundaries in which they live" (McKinstry 20).
Cooperative learning model is an active process where students work in small teams/groups, each with students of different levels of ability, use a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Students have opportunities to actively participate in their learning, question and challenge each other, share and discuss their ideas, and adopt their learning. Ross and Smyth (1995) describe successful cooperative learning tasks as intellectually demanding, creative, open-ended, and involve higher order thinking tasks. In this model, it is essential to create a positive climate where interpersonal skills can be promoted so that positive emotions will be fostered among learners. Cooperative learning also helps the learners to feel empowered and respected to prepare them to face real
Holistic teaching focuses on preparing the learner to meet any challenges they may face in life and within a work setting. They can learn about themselves, develop resilience and develop social and emotional development. A learner who feels confident and valued will be more able to absorb new knowledge and apply to real work settings and is more likely to continue their studies when they see it affecting them in a meaningful way. If as an assessor you are mindful to the learner as an individual and take into account their learning style and abilities it aids you in tailoring your teaching manner and methods that give all the best chance of success.
(Sugai et., 2000). In addition, a school must be aware what are the appropriate approach to apply in order to reduce significant behavioral problems. According to systematic in-school behavioral disorder intervention for children, schools also must be sensible that the problem of dealing with difficult behavior includes dealing with subsequent adult responses, because it maybe worsen the situation (Landrum, 1912).
What kind of kids like homework? Not a lot of kids. Homework should not be given by teachers, because, adults get angry when their work life goes into their personal life, so children should get the same respect. Another reason to prove my point is because 7 hours of school should be enough for teachers to teach anything. Although homework does teach your kid to work independently, having a family and a social life are important too.
First thing to remember, students are not protected from problems or disagreement, issue that happened at home also transfers to school or the inner conflict turn into exterior ones. Especially, as children are not quite skilled to resolve the disputes adequately, for this reason the peer mediation project is practical. Another key point, the traditional problem solving techniques, where adult interferes and makes a decision is to becoming less effective. Notably, students have the ability to solve their issue with proper mediation training. In fact, WJC uses different types of peer, ones that have more influence in the school community and the ones that have less impact, this way the students receive fair
I also think educators are having the trouble with the rules because this is something new and challenges to their teaching skills. Educators have to grade students work entirely different and try to make sure the rules are working for them and the students. I believe as an educator knowing that these standards will not help the students stay focus with the materials because the state I am living in, the students are learning from a textbook, which make them complain about it and be confused on the materials from the book. From listening to my child, I believe as a parent and an educator, I think that students are not going to progress at the rate that Common Core believes that they should. I also think that students will retain their grade level because all of these tests they are taking to move to the next grade.
