The goal of the usage of this fact is to show readers this common term does not reflect real traits of smart people and can be treated as an insult because of that. It is one of the few examples of Fridman’s appeals to readers’ logic. The essay is based on general data; the author mentioned schools and universities promote negative attitude to smart students: “Nerds are ostracized while athletes are idolized” (Fridman). But he did not use any statistical or science data to support his position. For example, Fridman could provide data about scholarships and other types of funding for sports and other activities.
The change in the way the kids taught each other was evident. The blue eyed kids treated the brown eyed kids like they were less than them. The next day Elliot switched the roles. She made the brown eyed kids superior and the blue eyed kids inferior. She set up the same rules as the day before.
The experiment was executed well. Yet, there are unethical practices happened during the experiment. First, the participants were not fully informed about the experiment. The researchers did not explain to the participants the processes in conducting the experiment. The participants were not informed that they would be arrested by cops in their homes.
Jane Elliot Split her 3rd grade c lass into two different groups brown eyed group and the blue eyed group; before splitting them she asked them is being discriminating to others right and they answer the way she expected them to answer because it has been taught to them since they have been in her class, she then proceeded to ask them why was it wrong and they could not give her a clear answer she also ask them would they like to know how it feels to be discriminated against and they all said yes. She conducted this exercise for a total of two days she started the first day off letting the children know that the brown eyed students were more smarter and all around better than the blue eyed student. She then withness some of the sweetest kids turn into nasty discriminating adolescence they tease the blue eyed children every chance they could.
The first and most important display of diversity is when Mrs. Elliot splits up the class by eye color. The point of this was to teach students how little sense is made from treating someone based on an aspect of their appearance. A clear example of social justice in the film is shown shortly after the class is divided, when the blue eyed children were given extra recess time while the brown eyed students didn’t get any recess time at all. There was no clear reason why one group was seen as superior and given more privilege aside from the children’s’ eye color; this is an issue that is still seen often today. The whole documentary is about a social experiment involving discrimination.
In my opinion, attendance or participation policies are harmful and disadvantageous to students. According to the research of Karen St. Clair, the attendance of college students is linked to motivation, not attendance policies (Human Sciences Press, Inc.).
365). The teacher, along with the help of parents, can help to manage the disruptive behavior of young children through the use of interventions. This research looked into the effectiveness of a combination of teacher and self-evaluation strategies and school-home note procedures to deal with inappropriate behavior. The sample consisted of two male students Craig (5) and Nathan (6) both in kindergarten. Other participants in the study included a kindergarten class (18 students), one kindergarten teacher, and one assistant.
Introduction Hidden curriculum refers to the unwritten, unofficial, and intended lessons, values and perspectives that students learn in school. While the ‘formal’ curriculum consists of the courses, lessons and learning activities participate in as well as the knowledge and skills educators intentionally teach to students, the hidden curriculum consists of the unspoken or implicit academic, social and cultural messages that are communicated to students while they are in school. The hidden curriculum concept is based on the recognition that students absorb lessons in school that may or may not be part of the course of study. For example, how they should interact with peers, teachers, and other adults, how they should perceive different races,
He was also warned by fellow professors that publishing the details of such an unethical experiment might put his reputation and career in jeopardy. This violated the ethical obligation towards the participating children in the study, since this could reduce the benefits from conducting the experiment if its results were not used in appropriate cases where it would be useful. This also violated the principle of beneficence. The process of how the experiment was conducted may also have been unreliable, since Johnson may have had a biased opinion about it, as he himself was a stutterer.
Many factors influence one’s decision in doing and/or creating something, so, to what extent is it possible to still be original? Original is the idea that something was created directly by one person without the influence or imitation of someone else’s earlier ideas or work. In “Biographies of Hegemony” Karen Ho discusses the challenges that many Ivy League students face while trying to meet their institution 's expectations, as well as the heavy recruitment by Wall Street bankers on college campuses. In “The Naked Citadel” Susan Faludi, addresses the violence among students at the Citadel, as well as their lack of originality and suggests that the cause is due to the rejection of society. In “The Ecstasy of Influence: A Plagiarism” Jonathan
Gary Gutting and Mark Edmundson the authors of the essays “What is College For?” and “On the Uses of a Liberal Education” respectively expressed their opinions on how college isn’t what it used to be. Gutting said some universities don’t teach what they are supposed to; they make some classes compulsory so students end up taking classes that are unnecessary. In result when students are given these particular courses as they become disinterested and aim for average instead of learning the material. Gutting also points out lack of academic engagement is why people misinterpret the existence of the college.
She separates her students into two groups to see how they will change and try to react to the group. She separated them into categories of blue and brown eye. Each day she selected a different eye color to be the superior one. They would discriminate against their friend if they were superior. They were just doing what one was doing, or at least following what the teacher told them to do in this experiment.
Previous studies have revealed that some of them endure critical punishments in schools for minor mistakes. This study seeks to highlight challenges black women have to endure from young age in the UK. The study seeks to focus on their plight, their struggles and pain and strengths. This study will firstly carry out an observation on the struggles of these black children in schools. The researchers are to visit schools and institutions and carry out a survey on the number of black children in comparison to the number of white children.
Lanza during this class period was the modeling method. That is, since the classes were preparing for the PARCC exam, Mrs. Lanza had her students complete PCRs and then graded them as a group according to PARCC standards. This allowed students to see just how grades are determined for PCRs and why they are given the grades they receive, and encouraged students to think like a PARCC test grader. As a result of this teaching by modeling, students were able to see both good and bad responses and why they are considered as such. This allowed students to walk out of class having a better idea of how they will be graded on the PARCC and how they can work to specifically improve their writing
The text and lecture offers two opposing views on influencec and contribution of Stein work in literature. The professor refutes allegation made on Stein. In one school of thought, the text criticises Stein 's work. The text states the her work had less influence than contemporaries because of her obscure style, no punctuation and no historical significance on American literature, However, professor disagrees with those points and put a cogent case. First, The text mentions that Stein 's work was obscure and hard to read.
