Introduction Personal Philosophy Good order is essential in a school if children are to be able to fulfil their learning potential. In the classroom, disruptive behaviour not only reduces children’s ability to concentrate and absorb information, but also unsettles children and causes immense stress for teachers. While the problem of classroom management in the school setting needs to be addressed, the definition of classroom management must be established.
Whether it’s in school or in the office place, we will always be interacting with others. As our school motto tells us, “respect is the key to success”. In order to make our school more successful, we must improve upon this aspect. The amount of disrespect towards students and teachers are unacceptable. In order to make school a more comfortable environment for everyone, we must take action and stop students from acting disrespectful.
Schools consists of varieties of teachers , who are responsible for teaching and caring for the students throughout the day. People may argue that schools should support both individuality and conformity to an extent. These two goals are completely contradicting to one another, the betterment of individuals and the betterment of society as a whole. I argue that schools need to focus on individuality more than any else. Schools fail to do this by enforcing dress codes, having mandatory classes and control of the school day structure.
Those messages of implied curriculum usually deal with attitudes, principles, beliefs, and conduct. Although implied curriculum is unavoidable, a student’s worldview can be deeply impacted by the implied curriculum in a school. In teaching character education, teachers are asking students to conform to a set of values they have chosen. Teachers must be extremely careful as they decide which values should be taught to students. According to Power and Kohlberg in their article, Moral Development: Transforming the Hidden Curriculum, administrators and teachers can change the hidden curriculum in a moral atmosphere and teachers and administrators should state moral values clearly and provide democratic environments for students (Power & Kohlberg, 1986, pp.
It is necessary for a teacher to have the students organized and transitions smoothly, but all the other little details, if thought of, help to make for a great lesson. A strong, outstanding teacher must manage the class efficiently and have some level of structure. An outstanding teacher needs to be able to analyze data, set goals, but most importantly have an inner drive to learn more, achieve the goal, and constantly adapt and do better.
Elisa, I found your post to be well thought out and answered the question asked. Informed consent is a must have when working in the school system. Per Ansaldo (2011) one problem noted with response-to-intervention (RTI) models, is that finding the student who needs extra help is easy, but identifying the teacher who may need assistance is not as easy. Moreover, focusing on the teacher being able to teach all learners should be more important than detecting students (Ansaldo, 2011).
Classroom administration is the procedure by which educators and schools make and keep up suitable conduct of understudies in classroom settings. At the point when classroom-administration systems are executed successfully, instructors minimize the practices that obstruct learning for both individual understudies and gatherings of understudies, while expanding the practices that encourage or improve learning. Classroom administration is truly hard and numerous scholars discuss it and each is not quite the same as the other where every scholar has his/her own thoughts and considerations. Some of them are specified beneath. In Redl and Wattenberg 's theories, they incorporate gathering flow, poise, the delight torment guideline, and comprehension
Because school is the dominant factor that affects the society for most of the aspects of the foundation of our knowledge and experiences that builds our critical thinking and principles, which is at the same time has the responsibility to guide our way of thinking for our future endeavors, it is righteous for these institutions to do something about it. I believe that through its integration in the education curriculum, teachers will be able to help their students critique, analyze, and evaluate the uses and effects of popular culture in our society as well as in our interpersonal perspective. Because as Peter Brown (2010) puts it, young learners above all have to be taught that, no matter what they’re studying – be it a blockbuster film, a Sims expansion pack, or an academic textbook – they need to scrutinize the facts as they’re presented and ask the right questions. Therefore, the integration of popular culture into education is their right so that it will help them weigh the importance it has for us and help them learn from it as well. In the end, the role and importance of popular culture plays a good part in the way we live today.
I feel that the consequence policy had appropriate consequences for different violations, I thought that having different consequences for different levels of offenses was a good idea for the elementary school. Consequences are extremely important for students to learn how to behave and what is and is not appropriate for them to do in school. The curriculum enforcement policy ties directly into my group (the curriculum committee). The curriculum enforcement policy had different parts that were incorporated into it that all passed, most of the policy focused directly on having the teachers collaborate with one another. As a future educator I agreed with the policy immensely, I feel that in order to have a successful teaching staff collaboration is key.
Something that has been prevalent in our society for the past few decades is the image of racism; whether it be through social media, films or magazines. Unfortunately, the images we have witnessed regarding racism are very negative. These images often show the group who is being the victim of this behavior too often be at fault; almost saying that because they are a certain color or from a certain culture that they are set up for failure based on their actions. This is the case in the movie “The Help”, where viewers watch black women become domestic workers for white women in the southern states during the civil rights movements. With the help of theorist Stuart Hall and Michael Omi and Howard Winant, this essay will intend to show that Hollywood
An effective leader recognizes that every student is unique. Our students come from different backgrounds and cultures that affect the way they participate in their learning. That leader encourages students to share their cultural and ethnic differences with others. Exploring these differences can lead to better understanding of the student population as a whole and allows educators to build classrooms and school communities that are safe, while fostering great environments for learning. She (or he) also understands all students perform at different ability levels, some students need to be challenged academically and some need increased assistance to reach grade level standards.
