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
My case focused on the mental health and illness of a high school teacher who was influencing adolescents by her inappropriate behaviour in the classroom. The article Mental Health in Schools: How Teachers Have the Power to Make a Difference discusses the role that teachers have in promoting mental health awareness and how a teacher can intervene to assist a student in need (Meldrum et al 3). The content of my case relates to this article by citing the importance of awareness, identification and intervention when someone is suffering from a mental illness, and how an individual can take a stand to assist in the recovery of a mental illness (Meldrum et al 4). Additionally, the case that I have analysed relates to the safety of the school community members. As discussed in the Parents’ Guide to the Ontario Code of Conduct, the standards of behaviour directly relate to the issue at hand in the Incapacity Case Study, as it is stated that “School community members must not: give alcohol to anyone under the legal drinking age” which took place before the removal of the teacher from the classroom (2).

It is important to teach students about the classroom rules, schools rules, daily routines, learn to practice new skills in the classroom and out of the classroom, and now their school schedule and outside of school schedule. You want to be patient with them and be consistent and have a trusting relationship with them because, if they are suffering depression, anger issues, then they think think that the teacher is gonna failed them. It is best to have a teacher tutor them for whatever is their weakness that needs to be worked on for the children. They want to help them as the best that they possibly can to help them pass, but we want them to know that we care about who you are and we just want to help you to learn something before you move on to the next grade and for the future. All children need stability to have
As an educator, it is important that I create a supportive learning environment. To do this I must implement school, curriculum and legislative requirements. My school and system requirements include reporting unsafe and unexpectable behaviour on the detention board (4.4.2). Another school requirement that promotes student’s well-being and safety is the Keys to Success behaviour system. The whole- school approach is implemented in my classroom and on the playground.
This project will impact the school community in a sense that the school pupils will be more aware and be on the lookout for bullying and not ignore the bullying situation and report it with immediate effect. Bullying has become a norm in the school that even staff members do not pay much attention to it. This project will impact the community by helping the pupils and the school in making it a conducive area of studying; in a sense that with these bullying behaviours being identified the school will take greater steps in punishment and ensuring a safe environment for everyone. Pupils will no longer be in fear when they are at school; this will build the pupils sense of efficacy and also creating a sense of community and belonging in the school. Long-term contributions of this project will be due to the harmonious behaviours of the pupils, it portrays a positive external image to the rest of the community about the school at large which brings a sense of promoting the school.
It is essential for schools to ensure rules and amendments are concisely communicated to staff, parents, and students; ensure consistency and be unbiased with all students; ensure school officials rightly stress their concern about violence, drug use, and other criminal behavior among the student population and implement positive strategies with students to help them make better choices in life. In addition, the Fourth Amendment plays a major role in the community. It is importance for schools to develop a relationship with local businesses and community leaders; because school aged students are our future community leaders. It is also important for the schools to collaborate with community leaders such as federal agencies and universities to develop and implement programs, which address violence and other criminal behavior in schools as a prevention
When a rule is broken the student will already know what is the consequence for their misbehavior. These details both agree that if misbehavior is being displayed a consequence will be administered. (Kagan, n.d.) "Students ' ability to gain the teacher 's attention by behaving appropriately" (Tuckman & Monetti, 2011, p.466). "The key to Assertive Discipline is catching students being good: recognizing and supporting them when they behave appropriately and letting them know you like it, day in and day out" (Canter, n.d.). When a student displays appropriate behavior the teacher should recognize their action.
Teach students skills and knowledge that promote social and emotional competence and provide a foundation for reflective learning and non-violent problem solving. 3. Develop systemic interventions that will create a safer, more caring, and responsive school environments and, optimally, communities as well. Teachers would be encouraged to document students bullying behavior, enforce rules against bullying, and discuss the issue with students during class time in
The key feature of the RTI paradigm shift is using the proactive approach to replace the reactive one. The proactive approach emphasizes on preventing a problem before it happens by the use of intensive instruction. To fill the small gaps before it getting bigger, the RTI requires classroom teachers to instruct all children, rather than waiting for the large enough discrepancy to validating a child for special
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.
This article is from an authoritative source that provides a comprehensive overview of the benefits of block scheduling. Most importantly, this source addresses common objections to the block scheduling such as concerns with retention, academic performance, and class climate. This will provide me with counterarguments that I can later refute in my paper, making my paper more convincing to the administration.

It is true that the need for trauma counseling has been recognized in the United States after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. It is more important to recognize mental health issues in children, and to make it easier for them to seek help. Kohli’s (2016) article not only informs the public about how traumatic experiences affects on children’s brains, but also emphasizes teachers’ role as people in the front lines to identify children who need mental health care. By recognizing and addressing the mental need for children who are traumatized, teachers foster these children to create a foundation for growing up as healthy
