Ch. 3 Major Concepts We find in our reading the essence of being a school principal and the many characteristics a principal must possess in order to be effective. This chapter speaks about school leaders managing every aspect of the school in order to ensure student success. Managing a learning facility that operates in an organized and safe environment can play a major role in the potential success of students.
Describe your experience working directly with college students in individual and group settings. As a senior consultant at the University Writing Center, Texas A&M, I have provided academic advice to over 350 students from all disciplines individually and in group-settings. Generally, I adopt developmental advising philosophy when counseling students. In a one-on-one session, I serve as a co-learner with active listening.
In Unit 3, in one of my sections, I had 3 A’s, 11 B’s, 4 C’s, 2 D’s, and 2 R’s. I feel calibrated, and I think that my grades have been fairly even throughout the semester. This particular section did a good job with the persuasive research essay, which is why this time around the class is “B” heavy. Typically, B’s and C’s are the most frequent grades given and I know that this semester the papers have overall been better than in previous semester. I think that this is perhaps because I have a better grasp on what I am teaching, and majority of my students this semester care – I have a lot come into my office hours to talk about papers, get my feedback, and do revisions.

“The behavior of difficult-to-manage students can be improved through providing interesting lessons on topics of personal relevance that permit active involvement and lead to competencies students consider important” (Charles & Senter, 2005, p. 131). This statement summarizes perfectly the idea that when students are engaged and learning about topics that are meaningful to them, their world opens up and they begin to see a purpose in what they are doing. According to Trevor Muir, a teacher and author of The Epic Classroom, conflict can motivate students and develop a sense of curiosity (T. Muir, personal communication, February 20, 2018). When students are presented with a real world conflict, they become motivated to find a solution. Project-based
There are many ways in which a classroom teacher can create a culture of positive behavioral support for students. The teacher can create these supports with or with out the school system having this policy. One of the most important ways for a teacher to establish this positive support is by having the expectations present for the students, so they understand what is expected of them individually, and with other classmates. If the students don’t know what they need or should be doing, and how they should be acting towards others in the classroom, then it may not be fair to the students if they get reprimanded. It also creates a negative environment when the teacher is constantly saying reprimanding the students, telling saying, “no” to everything.
Unit 731, officially known as known as ‘Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification Department of the Kwantung Army’ was built in 1935 in Manchuria (North-East China) during Japanese occupation. It was first referred to as the ‘Togo Unit’. Now often referred to as the ‘Asian Auschwitz’. The chief of the Unit was named Shiro Ishii, who convinced the Japanese Military to allow him to research and develop weapons that could kill huge numbers of people, specifically Biological Weapons.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Mrs. Cooke’s fifth grade class during my clinical experiences. Mrs. Cooke has a great rapport with her students and has very little difficult actively engaging students in learning. One of the “takeaways” from my visit references the students’ and teachers’ commitment to the principles of “The Leader in Me”. From a school-wide perspective, East Elementary School does not practice the traditional positive behavior interventions. Instead, the administration has adopted the ideals and principles behind “The Leader in Me”.
Philosophy is the way of life, the ability to look at what is happening around you and responding to it logically. Philosophy does not change situations but try to better and improve the situation at hand. According to Mastin,(2008) philosophy originated from the Greek word “philosophia” which is made up of two words, “phileo” which means love and “sophia” meaning wisdom. It is also a set of beliefs, norms and values that can guide, instruct and judge the way of doing things. Philosophy of adult education helps both the adult educators and adult learners to reflect on what is happening around them, to guide the adult educators in such a way that they choose the right approaches in order to persuade the adult learners to reach their goals.
I will be an effective teacher while providing a least restrictive environment (LRE) for my students. I will be supportive and open-minded to my students’ cultural backgrounds, while modifying individual accommodations appropriate for the students’ goals and academic achievements. Every student will receive an equal opportunity and be motivated to progress as an individual and a team member. Effectively communicating with students, parents and colleagues is one of the concepts most significant in helping an educator succeed. It is important to establish effective communication with the students, parents, and colleagues as soon as possible.
