All my friends from previous years had parted ways, and we were all thrown into this giant fishbowl just trying to survive. There was a lost feeling that came with this new school. I started to withdraw, and everything began to suffer as a result. My personal and social life became non-existent and my grades tanked to an all-time low. Terje Murberg, in her article, “The Role of Personal Attributes and Social Support Factors on Passive Behavior in Classroom Among Secondary School Students: A Prospective Study” states “For those who display an inhibited and/or passive behavior, it can be difficult to attain full potential academic achievement and to make use of social opportunities that are available” (Murberg 1).
The article was published on July 10, 2007, on “The Daily Mail website”. A student’s behavior is related to many different aspect, wearing a uniform can disturb a pupil inside and outside school. Uniforms can reduce bullying especially in school. One of the struggles could be kids that criticize each other because they look different or they dress “terrible”. When pupils wear the same clothes, they aren’t picky and they do not stand out of the crowd.
George Boeree: Personality Theories B. F. Skinner 2. Fritz Redl and William Wattenberg: Group life and classroom discipline Learners are encouraged to understand their behaviour and actions and to know that these differ between individuals. Supports self-control. Uses pleasant or unpleasant situations to modify behaviour. Classroom discipline refers to the efforts of a teacher to help students learn to conduct themselves in a responsible manner (Charles, 2011).
Through the observation logs, students are seen to be inconsiderate towards their peers when “some of the students were talking loudly amongst themselves during the lesson”. Students are also very blunt when they speak to their friends stating that “we should also avoid eating food that are fried so that we can be slim and that will help us to get a boyfriend”. Such comments on their weight is extremely rude and disrespectful as this may be a sensitive subject for some individuals. During the in-depth interview, “a few students that was seated separately around the class was using their mobile phones” and “some of the students were talking loudly amongst themselves during the lesson”. Such behaviours that are blatantly portrayed is intolerable in a classroom setting as those individuals disregard the effect of such acts on their peers and teachers.
His negative behavior included, throwing food at others, yelling, screaming, and causing a scene over nothing. There was one scene in the movie where he was sitting at lunch with a couple kids. The other kids did not seem to have any problems. Peter then picked up one of the other students food and was not giving it back. Peter finally gave it back by throwing it at him.
Disrespectful behaviors can be used towards anyone older or smaller than you, in this short story, Charles showed extreme disrespect to teachers, “The teacher’s friend told Charles to touch his toes like I just did and Charles kicked him” (Jackson 75). Educators are in my opinion the hardest workers as they spend their dedicated time to help you be successful in the future. Teachers are there to help children learn, not to be used as human punching bags. As a matter of fact, discipline and respect is something all parents should teach their children before sending them to school, and after reading the story I feel like Charles parents need to take time on him. As I mentioned earlier character traits shape you as a person so always make sure you have more positive than negative traits.
There was also a need to a larger space to play in during break time. In one of the interviews, the students mentioned that during break time when all of the classes are outside, they feel as though there is not enough space for them to play around freely with their friends. They always have to be careful of others and usually when a mistake happens and one of the students gets hit by a ball or gets bumped they will result into violence because they feel that the other student did it on purpose. Goal My main emphasis was to bring about social change in this community (school). The goal of this particular project is to see which social contexts such as background, and what behaviours contribute that lead to children bullying others.
There are various reasons why teachers may not be as consistent as they would like to. For one, some teachers have an unfortunate habit of trying to convince students to behave rather than relying on their classroom management plan. For instance, when disruptive behavior is seen in the classroom, teachers are steadfast to discipline the students. Teachers will result to scolding and raising their voices to students rather than putting into effect their rules and consequences to serve its sole purpose (Ayebo & Assuah, 2017). Moreover, teachers are not 100% sure what does and does not constitute breaking their own class rules.
Differentiation during a lesson has now become an important part of behaviour for learning. Students need to be motivated and challenged at the same time during a lesson. This would greatly bring down the opportunity or chance for any sort of misbehaviour. Building on from the idea of lesson planning, a teacher has to be aware that they use positive and different use of questioning in the class to promote good quality thinking. (Rogers, 2015) To further highlight what Kyriacou (2009) states, there appear to be three central and crucial aspects to pupils’ engagement during a lesson.
You notice that one of your students has been showing certain behavior problems. He refuses to complete classroom assignments, gets out of his seat, and disturbs his classmates. Although you have attempted to talk to him about his behavior, he continues to cause disruption and refuses to follow classroom rules. You finally decide to call his mother when he hits another student in the classroom. The behavior problems of your student are examples of externalizing behaviors.
