“Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers). To improve this, teachers and parents need to be mindful of how their students feel and need to not push them as much. You could see why people might think cheating is okay and vital to succeed, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s wrong and that you should talk to your teachers about how you
I agree with the school motto, however, it doesn’t hold true in our school and can definitely be improved upon. There are many reasons why respect is the key to success. Throughout our lives, we will work with many people. Whether we like them or not, we still need to respect them in order to complete the assignment. For example, a teacher pairs me up with people I dislike.
Standard teacher contracts make it difficult to terminate employment, but a performance based pay contract makes it easier to remove a bad teacher. Teachers who are unable to get the job done are replaced by another teacher who may be able to get things on track” (Thought Co.) Others agree that if teachers were held to a higher standard, and had something held against them, they would want to be more involved. Having proof that a teacher is incapable of teaching students everything they need too, they will be able to weed out the bad teachers. Giving teachers an incentive to get it together, and start teaching their students to the fullest extent should be implemented in more schools. Students will be more successful in their studies, and overall become more successful in school.
We need to learn and understand what they are trying to educate us on so we will not be doomed to repeat the same mistakes that society has already passed through. What is the point of going to school and memorizing lessons that we will forget after the test if they don 't stick to our brains? We need to be knowledgeable, persistent, self-driven to make sure we ourselves understand the lesson at hand. Test affect a student 's self-confidence as well, if we pass it 's a win-win but if we fail we lose a little bit of hope we had about what we knew. We doubt ourselves and that is not a pleasant
An issue surfaced when Kath M. Newman, an associate professor of English at Carnegie Mellon University, stated that she was angry at her son about a test. She stated that these “high-stakes” test will not reflect his true abilities due to pressure. Some educators agree that the testing format from standardized tests are not ideal. However, there were other educators who disagree stating that these tests are needed to ensure that educators are doing their job and for student to absorb the material (Tony 8). What the standardized tests already ensure are the unbiased and reliable way in measuring a student’s ability and a teacher’s effectiveness in the classroom.
I had to go to the writing center a number of times just to understand what my assignment was really about. Overall, I learned that everyone has their struggles in college, not everyone understands it. I learned that even though I struggled every day in this class, I learned what I needed to work on the most and that was applying myself more. Not only have I discussed how I transitioned into the role of a college student, but I will always be discussing the processes I followed to be successful in English
She also mentioned that “it provides students a clear explanation of the importance of behaving with integrity and that expectation that our resulting action will increase trust and respect in the LA community” Vangelli believes that implanting honor codes, in school shall gain respect and the importance of academic dishonestly. It will “ensure moral action”, allows the students to know it’s wrong. It will gain respect in Rockville HIgh School because they won’t be worried about someone getting advantages of you. Someone “voted in favor” because she could feel “ comfortable taking an exam without worrying about someone looking at my paper where I could feel trusted visiting a dorm as a day student” Vangelli did this only because she wanted
Others may think the team could easily be just the general and special education teachers, but I believe that every member is crucial and dire to a successful IEP meeting, whether it be to mediate or to pitch in ideas. Another aspect that I really like and appreciate in the meeting is the inclusion of the child. This is important in my eyes because the student may think the IEP is made only to slow down or show that the teachers are against the student. The inclusion of the student in the meeting shows the collaboration of both sides of the classroom and with the student’s parents. Every step and piece of an IEP or IEP meeting is critical to the child, its learning, and the parents.
In the essay “In Praise of the “F” Word” by Mary Sherry, Mary is determined to get students to learn and confident that they can, if they are motivated. Mary states that “before a teacher can expect students to concentrate, he has to get their attention no matter what distractions maybe at hand” (Sherry 488). Students may have things going on in their lives that can keep them from being focused on learning or don’t really think it is important. Teachers along with their parents have to make it a priority to get them interested and learn the material, if they can’t they will only set them up for failure later in life. Mary indicates “This policy has worked in the past and can work again” (Sherry 489).
That too, the teachers have experience of teaching, so them proofreading would be very helpful. Also the parents knowing about it is important because our parents deserve to know how we are being thought. They deserve to have some control over our education, because they are the ones sending us to school. The people who made these stupid standards is the government. They are controlling how our education is, while our parents and teachers say nothing.
Teachers are giving students easy work to make them feel proud of their grade. Easy work isn’t going to change the student 's mindset. This will just make it harder for the student to learn new things, difficult things, as in this case they would want to give up and not try. Dweck also states, “Kids need to be given hard problems, instead of being rewarded for easy problems” (22). Difficult work is what needs to be given to students to help them learn and the process of making mistakes.
Tenured teachers stay longer at the school, which is great for the school, because turning over teachers is disruptive to the school. Tenure encourages the careful selection of qualified and effective teachers. While each state has its own regulations for how teacher tenure works, most are very similar. Each new teacher is given a probation period and during that period the teacher must prove that they are having a positive effect on their students. Since it is difficult to remove tenured teachers, tenure encourages school administrators to take more care when making the promotions.
Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy. She did everything should could for him so he wouldn’t go down the same path a lot of kids his age were going down. She wanted a better life for Wes. “Well, your grades obviously aren’t bad because you can’t pick this stuff up or because you are stupid, you are just not working hard enough” (75-76). Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities.
To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice. My parents dream include getting good grades while making the good decisions. One quote by an unknown person said “ Move out of your comfort zone you can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when u try sometimes”. As my parents dream of getting good grades, they also want me to learn new things. To be successful is going to be hard and challenging step with hard work.
Such as grading all the work assigned to the students. In conclusion failure is not the only way to motivate students. The student might accept failing and never learn the material, but if we offer kids study hall, workshops and a sit down meeting it might even change their outlook on school. As well as study habits let us give kids a chance, to the right path and allow them to succeed without failing in positive learning
