Hanging out with the same gender for six hours a day without a glimpse of other people who could become their friends would only hurt students as personalities are all different. Most personality traits clash and fight with each other, and so people look to others that have the same traits or can easily understand them for comfort. One huge part of school is to figure out who
People in school such as teachers have noticed that many kids are unhappy because of dress codes and uniforms. Many kids have changed because of dress codes and because of wearing uniforms. In this, I feel like many kids are being changed by dress codes and uniforms. I think schools shouldn’t have to have a dress code and a uniform because dress codes and uniforms are a bad idea to have in schools. Many people find dress codes and uniforms offensive.
Moreover, the dress code makes students feel insecure about their bodies. Most—if not all—students who are affected by the dress code policy is girls, and since these girls are told by the dress code to cover almost their whole bodies, they are, inevitably, left with nothing but shame and insecurity towards their figures. “The limitations of the dress code, especially for females, can make a young woman feel insecure, concerned, or even ashamed of their natural feminine figure” (Martens, 2014). Additionally, since students are pressured to follow unreasonable rules inside the school,
There are various ways to deal with the racial dispute at classroom. Stereotypes play an important role in prejudice. The tendency to think about others in terms of their membership in various groups ar categories appears to be a key factor in the occurance and persistance of prejudicial behaviour. It is vital for a teacher to have a proper understanding and knowledge regarding the children and their behaviour in order to shape them as good citizens of the society. The main cause of racial discrimination towards a child in a classroom is may be due to the fact that the worlds of those children are distinct and they rarely intersect.
The author’s major thesis is racial identity so why are someone people are colored blind. Tatum uses her personal experiences and her being a professor. As her children was growing up they had to go through it with her own kids herself having to talked to them about race and how people may not agree on racism and she also use different things to use when she taught as a professor. Having to explain to your kids about racism is very hard because they want to be friends with someone of the different race. From pass experience I have talked to my son about not being prejudice and treat everyone the same.
John Hughes’s film The Breakfast Club (1985) resonates with certain modern-day stereotypes of high school students. The film also reflects on how much damage that social status and labels have on people, especially during adolescence. Hughes’s film breaks down the emotional barriers between ordinary high school students of different backgrounds through typecasting. As the actors take on the general roles of students that can be found in most high schools, the narrative of the story begins to drastically change as the characters are revealing their backgrounds with each other. As a result of using this technique, the film reveals the external and internal struggles that most adolescent children deal with in their lives.
But even with this new awareness, there are still black and white students who think that the fight is over. That it won’t get better than it already has so why keep trying. It makes me really question how we can break this cycle. I wonder if we could get parents to start teaching their children tolerance, acceptance and equality from birth, how different the world would look
In a school environment, prejudice is always a call for the worse. When we say prejudice it is most commonly known to be relating to race. In my experiences at school, there were cases of prejudice based on academic performance. Whenever a teacher would assign a group assignment students with higher averages would join together leaving those with lower averages to group with each other. This usually negatively affects many friendships since one may care more about their marks than their friends.
These two factors are also the sources of learning about gender itself. Teachers provide curricular materials that contain gender stereotypic behavior, and peers presents gender stereotypic attitudes and behavior. These stereotypes and prejudice will in turn be students’ guide to their own preferences and behaviors. According to National Center for Transgender Equality (n.d.), students who do not conform to the gender norms are often subjected to discrimination and bullying by their own mentors or fellow students. This event causes the students to feel limited in terms of their gender expression; thus, destroying their own self-esteem and isolating themselves from social
Students have mainly reported incidents of hate speech about their race, next ethnicity, then sexual orientation. This can affect school performance, and kids are more likely to express fear at school. Hate is making the already tough school system, even harder. Hate crimes have increased 62% on colleges campuses. Anti-Gay slurs are common, and students claim teachers seldom do anything.
There are different types of group structure which are “fixed member meeting, open ended, teenaged survivors of sexual abuse, residential groups as in group homes, and group in a school setting” (Shulman, 2014, p. 361-362). How does group composition and timing impact professional practice? Group composition and timing impact is very important in professional practices. Group composition and timing is important because if the group is too large everyone might not be able to share their opinions. If everyone is not interacting with the group this can cause the group to fall apart, because some people may feel like they are not apart of the group.
