Another step is to have a list of resources nearby to provide support for the student. A club or community center could help the student better assimilate and cope with the change differently than I can better they could better understand the student’s feelings. Also, an important step is to have an open mind and self-awareness. No one is perfect and mistakes are likely to happen; therefore, both parties needs to have an open mind and understand that I could take time to find the “happy medium” of the cultures. Also, understanding the bias and racial issues that could exist in the school is important because it helps put the student’s cultural issues with context (Arrendonado, 2001).
If I didn't do this then the conversational aspect of the session would have degraded into a teacher-student relationship. Interpersonal skills also include the skills and attributes associated with emotional intelligence, or being able to understand and manage your own and others' emotions (Skills You Need, 2017). While in the classroom I made sure I listened as objectively as possible from a neutral open-minded state, this way I could really concentrate and focus on what others are saying when trying to avoid emotional involvement. Without good interpersonal skills it is often more difficult to develop other important life skills, therefore I am grateful that I got time developing these interpersonal
Rufus’s mom was a greedy and nervous woman at the same time. Most of the time, she would look for something to do throughout the day. So, she would use her power over the slaves and control them. Sometimes she would yell at Dana for no reason. The way Octavia E. Butler shows the changes in Margaret Weylin throughout the book, shows how our feelings can affect us and other people.
Instead of being punished if students where to pick their own classes they could focus more on the class that they already like and are good at and then continue to advance in that class rather than being held back by a class that they don 't understand. Schools should allow their students to choose their own classes because students would be more focused and would benefit more from learning about classes that will help them in their future. All schools from
This led to more tension as we tried to accomplish this project and left hurt feelings for multiple members of the group. If I had not gossiped or rather found one person not in my group to confide in, I believe the group may have gotten along much better and would have completed the assignment with less stress. One thing I learned throughout this group project is the need for cohesion. Though it isn’t always possible to choose your group members, especially with group projects for classes, it is possible to unite around a common goal and your desire to complete it to the best of our ability. Cohesion will lead to a sense of appreciation for all members and relieve a huge amount of stress for each
Arguing and getting into disagreements with people is something that happens to everyone, and though fighting with people isn’t ideal, there are a few ways to make the argument conclude quicker and with less damage to a friendship or relationship. There are many different healthy ways to deal with conflict, one being a happy, positive approach that Anne Frank, author of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, used. Others, like Winston Churchill, could use an approach that unifies people or brings them together so everyone can fight together and be stronger. However, there are also unhealthy ways of working through an argument, such saying that the best way to deal with conflict would be to think more with emotions than being rational. Others
While public education may not always be able to cater to everybody’s needs and design rules that would best meet all expectations demanded of it, there are a few things that could change with the way school is structured. Amongst the proposed changes includes the changing of school hours – pushed back and hour, longer breaks in between class, and less focus on standardized teaching with more focus on teaching the material in a way that invites critical thinking, problem solving, and learning to learn. These proposed changes are not pointless in nature and they could each have potentially beneficial effects on students in general. Considering that some of the top countries in education espouse similar ideas mentioned above (i.e. Finland), it
Students who read this book will be able to relate to it and learn something new from it. Through perspective is how we see things. Many people see the same situations differently. If we see it from a different perspective than our own, we can get a better understanding of why they did it. Through others, we could see that they have made many mistakes, but it is what they do to fix those mistakes that get them
I would like a chance to get to know my peers a little bit more. The more comfortable I feel in the classroom, the more willing I am to ask for help. It is also nice being able to schedule days to study with my classmates so I am looking to build a supportive community. The class did move relatively fast which is what made it somewhat difficult because not all of the students are on the same level. Sometimes assignments are harder than others because I may have not seen the material before.
Some teachers are trying to motivate students who are willing to have a better future many different opportunites in the world that will be worth it. The teachers that teach leadership are well appreciated because they seem to help students get out of all there comfort zone and some teach students to be able to talk in front of a large crowd. I happen to barley
I thought the meetings would be awkward for me, as I didn’t get along with strangers too often. However, this experience has taught me to give everyone a chance and for that, I am truly thankful. Then again, I thought that LA 111 would be able to help me adjust to that problem of mine and it did eventually. Participating in the class helped me later articulate what I had learned to my member where or when it was necessary. I realize now that it had been my fear of being alone in this that had kept me from joining programs like this.
Sometimes things and events get in the way, but it is important to be optimistic. Having a positive attitude is also something that wears off onto other people, including my students. People do not want to be surrounded by negativity, so simply try and look at the positive side of every situation. Reflective At the end of a lesson or day, I like to reflect on things I did well and things I didn’t do well on. By doing this it helps me to pick apart what was good and what wasn’t, so that I can better myself in the future.
I understand that it is a part of her role to demonstrate to me how to take care of a situation and it is her duty as a teacher to fix things as quickly and efficiently as possible, but I wish I could do more to help at those times. A part of this is not knowing how best to get the kids to follow my instructions and directions. However, to make things easier on me, I’d like to think that the students in my class have taking a liking to me and listen to me very well. Fourth, I can’t stand the times where I find myself sitting stationary. Most of the time in the classroom, I am up, walking, moving.
