Sherry goes on and explains why we think it is right to sometimes excuse students who cheat the system because they come from terrible environments, but then goes on to conclude that “most kids don’t put school first on their list unless they perceive something else is at stake.” I think this is why there is a UIL rule at a lot of schools with a “no pass no play” policy. Students who are involved in extracurricular activities then have a reason to strive to pass. Sherry believes that “people of all ages can rise above their problems, but they need a reason to do so.” This is where failure comes in. Sherry proclaims that we need to recognize that this fear of failure is a positive teaching tool. To make this tool work, teachers and parents need to accept that if the student doesn’t learn the material, they must follow through with their promises of flunking.
A parent is a helper to the teacher because they help with their student’s learning. By competing with the teacher for the child’s attention, the parent is doing the opposite thing to which they should be, they are facing off with the teacher, with the end result of confliction. He then has another break in his paper, which is used to switch to the view of a teacher. Keizer immediately goes to another contradiction. As a teacher, according to Keizer, one is an exception to the phrase “education prepares one to be privileged and prosperous”.
When Joe Clark first met his students he used pathos by telling the students who didn't get kicked out that if they do not pass the state exam they won't be welcomed back into the school. The staff had it coming for them when Joe scheduled a meeting after he found out the scores on the practice test, Joe used pathos to make the staff guilty for how poor the kids did on the test by blaming them for such low scores. Finally he used pathos to encourage his students to do well on the test, reminding them what they have been working for the whole time. Joe Clark persuaded his staff and students to work hard by using pathos to send an emotional
Some argue that this new technology promotes short attention spans and lack of appreciation for the historical arts (Source E). Without the correct guidance, this statement may hold true for some students, but if teachers recognize that technology, like anything else, must be monitored and used only in proper context, that danger disappears. Technology can even be blended with traditional learning in order to maximize efficiency. Students could be asked to read a work of classic literature such as Shakespeare and later be asked to post on an online discussion board about their interpretations and reading experiences. In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information.
If the teacher seems like he or she is mad then the student will want to fix it so he or she will not get yelled at. Teachers also though have to be careful on what they say even though they need to be tough. The articles main point is to describe why tough teachers get good results. I do agree on everything the article said especially this “now I 'm not calling for abuse; I 'd be the first to complain if a teacher called my kids names”. Teachers can still be tough without being abusive, teachers just need to be strict.
Farber believes that the grades create phony motivation and students only want to please the teachers. According to Farber, students only retain the material until they are graded on it. No longer having a grading system would leave students having no drive in school. Schools would no longer have a basic form of ranking the students and see how well they are doing. Students would no longer want to see the point in striving to be the best when everyone is ranked the same.
Lastly, kids are afraid of making mistakes because they are growing up in a world that pressures them to be perfect. Instead of scolding our kids after every mistake they make, we should train them to learn from it. Make sure coaches let them know to keep trying until they achieve their goals. Sports give kids great experiences and life lessons, as well as a start to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If kids drop out early, they will not get those benefits.
Just because they are in their senior year teachers should see if that person is capable to read spell or write. Another thing is the students who puts their effort into school and still are not able to understand the subject then that will be different. For example, students with special disorders are the ones that will fall into that category. One of the many night students that sherry teaches said “I was a good kid and didn’t cause any trouble, so they just passed me along even though I didn’t read well and couldn’t write” (1). This example, shows that instead of the teachers using a method that gives her the power that she needs, students do as they please without much effort.
Furthermore, I will explain that learning about the lesson and worrying about their own work, as opposed to others’ work, is the only aspect that matters. I believe I can focus students’ attention more on mastery goals by providing a comfortable environment where everyone believes that he or she can succeed, regardless if they learn differently from the person sitting next to them. I believe fostering mastery goals in the classroom is not an element I can nurture in just one lesson; I think I would need to begin implementing this concept at the start of the school year. Additionally, I will not use competition on the lesson because the students will be focusing more on their own personal work, and I think the challenges I present in the classroom can be easily accomplished if my students utilize a growth mindset and are intrinsically motivated to
It’s vital to a child’s learning experience that we as teachers watch what is going on at these stations. Our text clearly states, “Many students rush through the work at a center without really paying much attention. Teachers need to be alert to these problems and check the work of these students very carefully before allowing them to move on to a new learning center” or another assignment (Arends, 2009, p. 427). Late finishers are a little easier to address. Arends suggests that teacher’s should let these students have extra time on assignments either after school with teacher supervision, or at home for homework.
As the initiative is run through the school the child goes to, the staff of Healthy Harold do not care for any of the above factors as long as the students learn the correct information that is supplied on the syllabus. If the child does not speak English, the school will contact the Healthy Harold educators to warn them of the issue, they will then send somebody who can speak that language or if that translator is unavailable, they will send over a teachers resource that the teacher can read and help explain it to the child. Individual - Individual factors include a person 's genetic makeup, skills and knowledge. Health behaviours are modifiable actions that can affect health positively or negatively. Health behaviours such as eating habits, drug use and physical activity are important determinants of current and future health status for young people.
Grading doesn 't define you, don’t let a B- hurt you or affect you because everybody get bad grades every once in awhile. You should care because teachers get to grade them and give them the grade they deserve but they never to speak their opinion when it comes to them. Grading isn’t really a part of school, you go to school to learn not to sit there and be judge on how you are doing your work. You should care because it gives students the freedom to do their work and not be judge or graded with the work that they do. You will never know until you have been graded and you get grounded for a bad grade.
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).
The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education. Later in life you will not be able to simply copy another person or look to the internet to answer all your problems. If you go down that route you run the risk of your employer firing you based on your inability to complete the assigned task. Pelton’s punishment was necessary because in a way it is similar to the consequences you might receive on a job later in life. Within the student handbook for the Piper School District it clearly specifies that the punishment for plagiarism will be an immediate zero on the given assignment.
JD’s speech pathologists saw him during the school day for therapy, but were additionally responsible for educating all of his teachers about different accommodations that were needed for him to succeed. Group projects were a reoccurring difficulty in JD’s life. His mother and the speech pathologist made the entire school faculty aware of how damaging it can be to a child’s self-esteem to be left out of a group. I had never thought of this before. JD’s story made me aware that leaving students responsible for forming their own groups has the potential to do more harm than good.
