She also mentioned that “it provides students a clear explanation of the importance of behaving with integrity and that expectation that our resulting action will increase trust and respect in the LA community” Vangelli believes that implanting honor codes, in school shall gain respect and the importance of academic dishonestly. It will “ensure moral action”, allows the students to know it’s wrong. It will gain respect in Rockville HIgh School because they won’t be worried about someone getting advantages of you. Someone “voted in favor” because she could feel “ comfortable taking an exam without worrying about someone looking at my paper where I could feel trusted visiting a dorm as a day student” Vangelli did this only because she wanted
Gatto also speaks about how boredom comes from oneself, and how we should always find something that interests us. First, Gatto states “Do we really need school?” This is where he starts explaining his opinion and describing his own experience about how schooling is not important. Then he goes on to talk about how school is only teaching us to become good citizens but not to truly educate ourselves and learn more. I personally both agree and disagree with Gatto. However, in many ways I disagree.
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.
Moreover, demographics and culture are not an excuse for students’ lack of achievement. (pg.80) Acknowledging and embracing a student’s racial or ethnic background is important, but it is just a piece of the educational puzzle. Effective teachers must be culturally responsive, with fine-tuned classroom management skills, and high expectations for all their students. It is crucial for an effective
It is necessary for a teacher to have the students organized and transitions smoothly, but all the other little details, if thought of, help to make for a great lesson. A strong, outstanding teacher must manage the class efficiently and have some level of structure. An outstanding teacher needs to be able to analyze data, set goals, but most importantly have an inner drive to learn more, achieve the goal, and constantly adapt and do better. Teaching is changing quickly, so we must change with it. We need to learn how the students learn and teach in that way.
In order to comprehend the curriculum, you must understand that there needs to be a balance between content and skills which is achieved through ongoing discussions with other educators. Among the instruction portion it is key to know that the purpose is not to cover the curriculum, but uses the instruction flexibly to maximize learning for all students. And most controversially is the topic of grades. Two key factors are reviewed; first, grades should never come as a surprise, second, grading doesn’t improve learning but merely summarizes what has been learned. A recurring line that Cooper emphasizes throughout his work is that schools and teachers must maximize learning for all students.
Do they seem like they want to be there? Or do they act like where they're at, is the worst place in the world? San Tan Foothills could be considered admirable and positive. I think this because of the atmosphere of the school. The teachers want to be here, they want to make sure that the next generation of this world, is smart, problem solving, and well informed.
This principle says you should not let this dictate your choices to help or not. By choosing to help to prevent something bad from happening, we will have a flourishing society with people who strive to help because they morally know it is the right thing to do. I think it is a challenge to reconceive a society in which everyone believes in this principle. Many people can be bias without even realizing. We can definitely educate children in school and stress that this principle can help impact people tremendously.
Due to the fact that the curriculum, instruction, assessment, school funding, and desegregation aren’t made for ALL students to succeed we as educators must use what we know about our students, education, and history to inform our teaching. It is important to use the experiences and culture of our students (getting to know them) to make our instruction more relatable. In classrooms students shouldn’t feel like their stories aren’t heard. Educators must construct a positive classroom environment so that students will feel comfortable being themselves and taking risks with their language (ELL) which includes ALL students not just one population. This might mean making changes or adding to the existing curriculum.
Salsada is one of those few people in my life who shaped me into the person I am today. He told me not to let underachieving get the best of me. He made me realize that school is not all about homework and the letter grades. It’s about the love of learning and the power of knowledge. Mr. Salsada reminds me of a great quote by Alexandra K. Trenfor, “the best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see”.
