Instead, the administration has adopted the ideals and principles behind “The Leader in Me”. The Leader in Me teaches students 21st century leadership and life skills and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader (FranklinCovey, 2009). The program has created 7 habits that promote a positive learning environment. The program is also aligned to several national and state academic standards. The program is designed to teach students about life skills such as responsibility, accountability, leadership and initiative.

For Graff, his inspiration came from the vast potential that he opened up when he finally appreciated what scholarship could be. “I had to be corrupted first in order to experience innocence (Graff 26)”. “Everyone is different. We all learn in different ways”. This has been cemented into the brains of every school boy and girl from early on and yet still, it has become prevalent to relinquish ones desire to be educated so one may conform to the habits of the culture around them.
This is help the teachers understand some of the difficulties that the students face in their neighborhoods, since most of the faculty and staff live in areas outside the school community. • Create programs to help students to overcome language, academic and behavioral barriers that sometimes interfere with students learning. I might also make sure that there were bilingual instructors on staff to teach foreign languages and ESL classes. • Include various programs, displays, and learning units on and about multicultural holidays. I would use this as a means to remove obstacles standing in the way of establishing a positive school
In the year 2000, culturally responsive teaching connects students’ cultural knowledge, prior experiences, and performance styles to academic knowledge and intellectual tools in ways that legitimize what students already know. By embracing the sociocultural realities and histories of students through what is taught and how, culturally responsive teachers negotiate classrooms cultures with their students that reflect the communities where students develop and grow.

The most important lesson that schools teach children is the truth about society and the real world. Schools play an important role in shaping, molding, and developing an individual’s perception of themselves and society. It is not until children enter the sphere of academia that they begin to experience the real world, where they learn how to interact with others and they learn how society interacts with them. Schools have an immense impact on a person’s view of self and society, which greatly impacts them for the rest of their lives. That is the major theme of the first three chapters of Carla Shedd’s Unequal City: Race, Schools, and Perceptions of Injustice.
It is in the hands of our current school administrators, teachers, and lastly students, to enact real change in hopes of achieving true racial equality. Racism and classism management in schools today What if you were not offered the same opportunities based merely off of the color of your skin? What if your peers thought lesser of you because of how much your parents made? It may seem like something of the past, but these manifestations of racism and classism continue to lurk among the depths of schools across the globe. These forms of discrimination are still common within school systems, and continue to affect the lives of many students(Expereiences of racism).
Benchmarks are “check points on where students should be at a particular point in time” (Arends, 2009, p. 107). This is where diversity plays a huge role because the student’s academic levels are on opposite ends of the spectrum and this can affect finishing rates. “Rules, procedures, and downtime activities are needed for students who finish early and have time on their hands. These include high-interest activities such as making available special reading material or educational games that students can complete on their own” (Arends, 2009, p. 427). It’s vital to a child’s learning experience that we as teachers watch what is going on at these stations.
The following are ways for me to utilize CRT in facilitating cultural and racial equity in my classroom: - Allow students to communicate in their language (L1) because it demonstrates the acceptance of their culture and identity. I have seen many educators deny their students of this right and I made sure in my current classroom to allow students to communicate in the language that they are most comfortable with. It is important for ELL students to use both languages because they may know a word in their L1 that they don’t know in their L2. - Make sure that bulletin boards, displays, materials, and other visuals in the classroom reflect the racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds of the students. Similarly, it is essential for students to use their real-life experience to connect school learning to students’ lives.
It is interesting to read and think about how the relationships we form when we are very young affects us. Becoming Attached is an awesome resource to have when you are looking for support on the importance of attachment. Belsky's model when drawn out and understood fits into attachment styles in both the parents and children's lives. I think with today's fast-moving society, the importance of attachment is weakening or unknown to others. Like the ending of the book says, we place more attention on achievement and power in children today that it causes a hindrance on secure attachments and also has changed parenting styles.
A lot of people try to help their depressed loved ones, but many of them end up making that person feel worse because they don 't know what 's good to say.

They feel sorrow, remorse and even pain themselves for what they have done. Even the ones who are totally scared can be the ones who like it just to not be picked on so much. Yet, not everyone will be that type of person. For the ones who don’t take a liking to Valley Forge, are the ones who don’t show respect for anyone, “As silence finally returned to my room, I moved my hand from my eyes and calmly spoke: “Man, if you don’t get out of my room…”(pg 87). They want to feel in charge all the time and anytime they want.
We are all human and many of us go through many life challenges. Just because we are their to help human trafficking victims this does not mean we will not go through many issues in our lives as well. We have to take this into consideration and understand every day will not always be the best day. With this said this is where we can collaborate as a team to help each other with our own battles as well.

Emergent bilingual students are not helped enough, misread, and evaluated too much in public schools, but with that said, their teachers have an influential role in their educational experiences. Curriculum and Instruction 312 is a basic explanation of the problems and possibilities that are relevant to this student population that continues to increase in size. The course has distinctly focused on community, racial, legislative, and academic matters associated with the education of young emergent bilingual students. It has presented an overview of numerous considerations that influence education and schooling for these students. We have examined concepts pertaining to language use and education, registers and varieties of English, curriculum
