I observed the teachers demonstrate to the students what they should do by going first. As the relay took place the teachers were encouraging the students by saying “you can do it.” Once the relay race was over the students went back inside and worked on independent work. On one side of the classroom, the kindergarteners were drawing pictures while the first graders were working on a math worksheet. Counting blocks were available to the students to use for this assignment. I observed the teacher walking around the room and working one-on-one with students.
It wasn’t until his teacher told him that he was different. The scene takes place at his elementary school when one day the principal walks into his class asking for all the white students to stand up so the protagonists not thinking anything by this stood up with his classmates. It wasn’t until his teacher called him out by his name and said: “You sit down for the present and rise with the others.” The protagonist was confused by this statement to he replied with “ma’am.” She repeats again, “You sit down now, and rise with the others.”(page 808). This scene describes the first indication that the protagonist is different from his other classmates. The protagonists now in shock goes home to find out if what his teacher said is true.
It causes great confusion in the minds of the kids. The second Lesson is the lesson of Class Position and how they must stay in the same class and not try to change.

Laurie makes up Charles because he wants attention from his teachers. When Laurie’s mom introduces herself at the PTA meeting, Laurie’s kindergarten teacher replies, “We’re all so interested in Laurie” (Jackson 3). The teacher was speaking for the other parents as well when she said they were interested. This depicts that the students’ parents must’ve heard stories about Laurie as a troubled kid at home too. Next, Charles’ mischievous behavior brings attention to himself during class.
(1981) was done to back up the empathy-altruism model. The scientist asked a classroom of students to watch a video about another student named Carol, who had broken bother her legs and is not having a very easy time catching up to her peers in terms of school work. The students were broken up into two groups labelled the high empathy group and the low empathy group. The students then received a letter from Carol asking to meet up and share lecture notes with her. “Some of the students were told that Carol would be finishing her work at home, and others were told that she would be in their class when she returned to school”.
In the film “The Emperor’s Club,” Mr. Hundert stated to Mr. Bell in the classroom in front of all the students, "Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, and drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever."

This week in field observations, I noticed that the students in the first hour were extremely active. Some of the students were getting up out of their seat to touch other students, and taking other students supplies to complete their assignment. The students also started talking about their future and how they planned on not having children. The teacher told them to stop talking and to focus back on their assignment. The next class was more calmed than the other class but, one behavior issue occurred from a student.
An example on how they are supported are when the teachers make Ender do unfair things no one else have ever done in the history of battle school. He also turns a bunch of amateur little kids into a squad and beats everyone they go up against, including young adults.

Ender and Beans conversation show the teachers at Battle School are just throwing random obstacles in Ender and his team's’ way while everyone else has the normal one game a day and didn’t have their first game for 15 weeks.

As she engaged the class in a discussion and wrote sentences on the board, Brennan appeared to pay attention as he stared at the board.
As soon as the alarm goes off, people begin to meander to class. Some decide to pick up books at their lockers, while others choose to chat with their friends in the halls.

The teacher will discuss further if this is the way he would want to be treated. Then, the teacher will implement specific praise. “Praise can be used to build positive relationships with students and assist in creating a supportive classroom environment” (Curran, n.d., p. 7). Most of the time children who treat others the way Patrick is treating others have deeper issues going on.
