When it comes to punishers there is no set theory on which events will function as a punisher. Thus, if you ignore a behavior, it will not be the best approach for a parent to help the adolescent eliminate certain behaviors. In each situation there has to be a reinforcement and a punishing contingency. These factors influence how a contingency function as a Punisher, this rich history of findings about reinforcement and punishment effects in the laboratory, led to the application of these principles to help people with real life problems. (Cipani. 2004).
Identify the legal (citing specific education laws) AND ethical (citing specific OCT principles) issues. (1-2 pages) The legal and ethical issues in the Incapacity Case Study are based on the actions that took place while the teacher was in the presence of students and others in the school. The ethical issue violations include those of care, respect and integrity, while the education laws that are called into question are those of morals and absences
They focus on teaching children how to be self-disciplining and how to take responsibility for their actions¨ (hook 19). Some people are surprised that there are ways to discipline without physical punishment. hooks makes a very good point on other ways to discipline a child. That physical abuse harsh punishment is not the only way to punish or discipline a child. Another a quote from Bob Shelby, a man who was abused by his father as a
From my own personal experiences, some unruly children only respect a firm spanking with the law prohibiting this practice of parenting it can cause children to go down the wrong path because they don’t have the proper respect for their parents which is where children are supposed to learn respect for an authoritative figure. As the snippet of the comment from Allison, 2014 would suggest it is necessary to spank a child this is evident when the text states “Many of the parenting books that dismissed spanking as wrong pushed that a parent should reason with a child. However, science has proven that due to brain development, it is impossible to reason with a four-year-old.
They are predetermined harsh punishments for violation of rules. They address issues of violence, drug abuse use of weapons and disruption of school by students. They are a means of protecting students in school and maintain a conducive environment for learning. Schools favor such policies since they remove deviant students from schools and serve as quick interventions that send a clear message that such behavior is prohibited (Murdick, Gartin, & Fowler,
The article study states that, “YM assumes that the best mechanisms for reducing bullying behavior are changing an individual’s perceptions, attitudes, and self-efficacy beliefs (children believe that they can take action to stop bullying in their schools)” (Jenson at el., 2009, p. 363). This student centered module seeks to prevent bullying through the development of students social attitudes by helping them to cultivate healthy relationships with their peers, teachers and community. The study also focuses on moving students from what they call the “victim class” (students targeted by bullies) to the uninvolved class (students who are bystanders and help
That can be easily fixed by taking out those parts, but leaving in the negative and real world parts so children can learn about the real world early in life and they will learn the difference between good and bad actions. Books should not be banned; banned books can have an important lesson for kids to learn for the life they have ahead of them. Some people believe books should be banned from society, because some books have profanity. Correspondingly vulgar language is everywhere, children know
The accountability of the scores is meant to encourage teachers to adopt better and more effective methods of teaching, as well as to urge students to work harder. However the effects are more detrimental. Because of testing, students are more likely to be frustrated and discouraged at having to move so fast to cover all the ground needed. If a student is having a bad day or just is not a good test taker, all anyone can say is “tough luck.” The teachers will only focus on the select subjects tested on, and then only the select aspects they believe will be covered in the testing.
In conclusion, social promotion ultimately hurts students far more than it helps. Social promotion creates perpetual cycles of unpreparedness for students as they continue to fall behind in classes. The better solution for struggling students is extra help and counseling. If a student struggles in a particular subject to the point of failure, they should be given extra help and more broken down explanations of the concepts. Students should not be passed into harder classes when they couldn’t manage the previous
Much time, children misbehave for one or several reasons: they want attention, do not know right from wrong, or do not cognize how to show their opinions, or simply desire to find out how far they can move outside their limits. Even though spanking a child may be a fast way of discipline, the effects sometimes do not execute the goal a parent is trying to communicate. Yet, through means of nonviolent methods of study, such as short talks, time-outs, and taking away privileges, a parent can achieve cooperation and control; thus, teaching their child right from wrong by standing strong in punishment, which will carry through to a lifetime of lessons taken. Depending on the age of a child, a serious variety of discipline can occur from just talking with a kid. Through conversation, a parent or, anyone for that matter, can discuss the child’s misbehavior, help them understand what they acted was wrong and
These tests are putting too much pressure on a student, which can lead to anxiety causing them to mess up and fail or even drop out before they are given the test because they’re not good at tests and don’t want to try to get told they failed after 4years. Standardized tests are an unreliable measure of a student’s performance. Performance simply means an action or process of carrying out or accomplishing an action, task, or function. Why should I let a test tell me what I know? I feel like standardized test are more for the school then for us.
As Cathy Seeley explains in the article, Faster Isn’t Smarter: The Trap of Timed Tests, “Some students are good at timed tests and some are not. Students are also was prevented from finishing the test, something that causes some them a tremendous amount of stress.” Furthermore, the teacher was led to falsely believe that the student did not know the topic well. When students are put under tremendous amounts of stress, they often underperform because of the presence of anxiety. Indeed some of the students who completed the test and did well were those who indicated the most severe anxiety, talking about being “scared” when they were asked to take the test.
Zero-tolerance policies will teach children how society works - when you make bad choices, you will have bad outcomes. Parents and administrative claim that it’s important to keep these policies in schools because they help maintain a safe environment, while teaching students unacceptable behavior is (Sellors). “ Zero-tolerance policies remove difficult students quickly,” said Sellors. After these students are removed from a schools, it is harder for them to get into another school. Although some students who are expelled from school are offered an alternative education at disciplinary schools, those schools fail to provide a “meaningful education” (ACLU).
In "Counterpoint: School Children Should Learn To Defend Themselves Against Bullies," the thesis states “Dealing with childhood bullies is part of growing up. Children must learn to cope and defend themselves,” but what about those who cannot learn to defend themselves? This is where the adult that plays the role of the bystander needs to intervene, so that it is not a lack of action on their part. Bullying will never be completely over, but bystanders have the option of choosing to be hurtful or helpful, and they can choose to prevent bullying by being helpful. When it comes down to bullying situations bystanders need to choose to be the solution instead of the problem, because it is one or the
