Lipman supports her claim by proving that statistically, disciplinary teachers are improving their students, students that don’t show grit are proven to seek failure, and the further teachers push their students, the more goals they’ll achieve. The author’s purpose is to express the ideals of strict teachers and to inform readers and students that teachers are hard on them for a reason. In order to indicate why students shouldn’t feel threatened or frightened by tough teachers, Lipman also shows that teachers are improving the learning environment. I strongly agree with the author’s claim on how tough teachers receive astounding results. A primary reason I strongly agree with Lipman’s claim is because she demonstrates certain statistics that show how strict teachers are improving their students more sufficiently.
In terms of Brennan’s locus of control, she has highly internal control. She greatly believes that you control what happens in your life; you control your own destiny. Internals are said to achieve more in school, become more independent, less depressed, and to cope well with stress. Clearly, this is the case of Dr. Brennan. She achieved highly in school, thus earning her a stellar education.
Mrs. Dubose won, all ninety-eight pounds of her. According to her views, she died beholden to nothing and nobody. She was the bravest person I ever knew’” (Lee.112). Even though Mrs. Dubose was Caucasian, Atticus indirectly taught Scout and Jem how to treat all people, including African Americans. They might not have realized it at the time, but Atticus was teaching them a valuable lesson: treat all people equally, no matter how they treat you.
Which means she is going to have to work very hard because she is very weak. Lupe ends up winning the championship, and she is proud of what she has done. I think that Lupe is a very admirable person. She is admirable because she is intelligent with the situations life throws at her and in school. A following reason, is that she is determined.
My instructor was going to watch me, and I told her that I feel unsure of myself. She talked through the procedure with me and with her calm demeanor and assurance I was able to perform that task with no problems arise. Her communication skills helped empower me with confidence needed to execute my task. If she not for her walking me calmly through that procedure I would have missed out on my education. I was lucky enough to do that task two more times and felt comfortable while executing that task.
Margaret Mead states, “But while we often rejoice in the success of people far removed from ourselves-people who work in another profession, live in another community, or are endowed with a talent that we do not especially want for ourselves-we tend to regard the success of people close at hand, within our own small group, as a threat." I cannot agree with this more, honestly. I think people tend to look at the people around them who are successful as a threat becasue they know they can be compared to them. For instance, a girl in high school who is extremely pretty will threaten all the other girls. That is simply becasue the other girls will feel like they will be compared to the really pretty girl.
She is clueless and will always be like that because she thinks very little of suspicious situations. She is being arrogant by saying things that make her seem to be more important and smart. When Alyss says this she is already smart enough to be a Queen.“Everyone thought she had made it up and she tolerated more teasing from children, more lectures and punishments from grown ups, than any 11 year old should
I was amazed by the courage of Jane Elliot, and awed by the outcome of her discrimination lesson as I watched A Class Divided. In the beginning, it was painful to see the children suffer from the experience of discrimination, but the lesson taught them a beautiful thing – the intrinsic value of human life and the dignity of every human being. I believe that with such profound a lesson, it was/is an experience worth suffering through. Discrimination is an idea constructed in peoples’ minds, creating concrete barriers that are difficult to overcome. Elliot, constructed the thought that blue-eyed, then brown-eyed, people were superior into the minds of her students, and it was powerful enough to cause a divide amongst the children.
I love my students, even and especially the mischevious ones, the quiet ones who have loud stories insides of them, the ones who hate reading, and the ones who are starting high school and the ones who are ready to move on. If you really knew me, you would know that: I take pride in being a teacher I believe that my children are my greatest work, even when they don’t seem so great in certain moments I really love my
I liked one teacher's style of dance and teaching style better than the others, however I knew one would excel me as a dancer because she would be harder on me. Coming into high school and being on the dazzlers, I thought going somewhere stricter, would be better. She understood that I would have to miss because of dazzlers and other school things. I am sure my other one would have to, but I had previously talked to the owner that was in town, along with other people on my team, so we knew she would work with us as best she
I was at a new school, and it seemed like everyone knew what they were doing except me. When I was having a particularly bad day, I always looked forward to fifth hour with Mrs. Dokter. Her no-nonsense attitude towards trouble makers and skills in sarcasm made her a delight to be with. On days when my stress levels were particularly high, Ms. Dokter would always know just what to say. For example, one day she announced that we would
Everyone has a story about his or her favorite teacher growing up; in fact, one would be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t have a boastful story to tell. Usually this teacher is, “super awesome,” because he or she allowed talking in class, always had easy tests, or perhaps slipped a few extra points to get students to that A. Although there are a few teachers at Mandan High School who fit that criteria, the teacher deserving of Mandan High’s Best Teacher Award is far from any of the aforementioned. Mrs. Saur deserves the award for Mandan High’s Best Teacher, not because she is the easiest or the most fun, but because her passion for teaching runs through every vein in her being. Few teachers have the capability to captivate a class’s attention the moment they walk through the door.
Many of her teachers from Garrison Middle School were vital to this process. Gaby said that she felt relieved and very happy when she found out she had made it. She had put lots of effort into getting excellent grades and having a spotless record. Gaby said that if she had not been accepted, she probably wouldn’t believe in herself as much or put effort into her schoolwork. This has changed her as a person.
Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy. She did everything should could for him so he wouldn’t go down the same path a lot of kids his age were going down. She wanted a better life for Wes. “Well, your grades obviously aren’t bad because you can’t pick this stuff up or because you are stupid, you are just not working hard enough” (75-76). Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities.
