A good education can change anyone, a good teacher can change everything. This quote connects to ‘The Metaphor” by Budge Wilson and The Ron Clark Story by Rain Haines, because most of the students'' in these stories got the privilege of a good education but it’s the teachers that really made a difference in their lives. Good teachers that have a variety of learning techniques, are going to have a better outcome in their classrooms, resulting in more successful, lifelong learners. Teachers that have the ability to adapt to the students learning skills can completely change their grades.
The techs a shadowed during this observation were amazing people that share with me valuable information. During slow times they would help me with school options and where they went to school, and what they liked about it and what they didn’t. Everyone seemed very excited about my interest in radiology and was more than happy to answer any questions that I had. The techs I shadowed seemed happy to have me tag along in their exams and made sure to explain anything that I didn’t understand.
Dr. Dweck describes two ways to help students with fixed mindsets develop growth mindsets. First, you must focus all your praise on effort. Dr. Dweck 's research found that there are very few exceptions to this rule. In a wide variety of settings, she found that any praise of results, even in small and isolated tasks, changed the nature of the students ' motivation and their level of effort.
What measures student success? What is the measure of student success? These are two questions which plague society daily, and though there are other questions, these questions have formed the way the education system is run. Mike Rose’s book Lives on the Boundary, is a compelling account of the importance of education. He stresses the role a teacher plays in student success.
My first and second grade teacher Mrs. Shoemaker has been one of my biggest role models in my life. It wasn’t necessarily the math, science, history, or English that she taught us that made me look up to her although she taught us those very well. Her character is what stood out most of all. Mrs. Shoemaker was very good at one on one contact with my classmates and I. In a fairly good size classroom, she made each of us feel like we belonged and that we were all she cared about.
Interview with Alka (Mom) Alka found it easy selecting the most rewarding parts of being a parent. “One of the most worthwhile parts of being a parent is definitely watching my children grow and learn. There is no greater joy than watching my son and daughter grow into better human beings.” She stated.
Investigating an Academic Tug-a-war: PE and GPA Running a stimulating mile, performing relaxing exercises, and spending time with friends all sound pleasant and truly are as components of physical education. Students are given the opportunity to showcase their abilities or improve upon and learn new techniques. Physical education is imperative and provides many benefits to students. This class should continue to be counted in one’s grade point average, despite the recent arguments, proposed by opponents, which greatly lack evidence.
It also needed as much because by findings a complete teenager or person physical and mental is too hard, so this way just not only for promoting extracurricular activities to improve students’ knowledge, but it is for everyone respond on students. From the research that were made by correspondences from Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, students with more involvement with the physical education courses have shown a decrease of result in manner and behavioral issues, there also many positive effect that were shown on many student’s academic achievement. These were happened because when the behavioral issues decrease, the disciplinary issues also will decrease and as we know that a good discipline level can lead to a better way of academic and will gain them to a benefit learning
For example, if a boy loves to play football, and is good at it, he will have the opportunity to meet and learn to play with another individual. It doesn’t matter race, gender, or beliefs of the two people, they bond with their love for the sport/topic. Some people will say that PE is just a waste of time and that you just play games. Although you do play games, PE is actually teaching children/students how to be accountable, dependable personal. An example of this is in, The Values of Inclusive PE when it says that PE, “...reveals a culture of respect and community values…” Respect is a great benefit to physical education classes.
Change is inevitable in education as in all areas . Shifting perspectives within education and efforts of reform within it can be considered as educational change . The process of adapting or becoming used to the new ideas and meeting the needs of educational change require considerable efforts. This educational change can be a threat, opportunity, problem or neutral depending on our viewpoint.
My interview with Mrs. Coty was very enlightening. I’ve seen her in action, being her Practicum student, but actually getting to discuss some of these things with her was fascinating. It’s always important to know why someone wants to be a teacher. Mrs. Coty shared a genuine love of learning with me and a mission to help make math easy and enjoyable for all middle schoolers so that they can go on to conquer math in higher grades. A lot of the reasons that I want to be a math teacher line up with what Mrs. Coty said as well.
Also the practitioner would need to work in partnership with the parents at all times because the parents are the most important people in the child’s life and the parents of the children know their child better than you do. Also in a setting I attended before the practitioner and the mother of a chid liaised in order to put a sticker chart with rewards to help improve the child’s behaviour. The idea of the sticker chart came from B.F. Skinners theory which was positive and negative reinforcement: if children were rewarded for good behaviour then the behaviour is likely to continue. (Bruce T, Meggitt C, 2007). Communication would also be essential while planning for the children because if the child is involved with any other professional then the educational and milestone developments must be communicated between multi-agencies to ensure that everyone is aware of the stage the child is at in his/her learning.
With that being said, Common core developers have outlined the approach to assessing. To avoid layering on top of other assessments already being used, teachers and administrators will need to examine their assessment approaches so that testing continues to add to, rather than take away from teaching young children. To direct teachers in this approach, they would need to become familiar with the guidelines provided in the Common Core Standards. Next, in reference to assessment results being used for high-stakes such as grade retention, Common Core
First of all, if after school sports were taken away, kids wouldn’t be able to work on their social skills. Next, if after school sports were taken away that would lead to other extracurricular activities would not happen, like cheerleading and pep band. Finally, kids would not be able to get college scholarships for sports. These are just a few more negatives to this, but there are countless more.
