Even parents complain when the students are given requirements to finish certain assignments online, for its a challenge for students to remain on task. Students have to be capable of concentrating on what needs their attention, such as their participation in classes, exercises, anything concerning their grades. It would also help if the teacher can use methods to refrain the students from using their cellular devices. Speaking of teachers, take note that at times it could be the teacher who gives the students an open door to not pay attention in class, especially a teacher who has favorites. It is true that teachers want their students undivided attention but there are some teachers that give little concern when their students are on their gadgets chatting, playing, or are on any social
In the several years of my education, I have improved significantly in areas I had done poorly on only years before. While I may have improved, I still have some downfalls and areas I lack in; this resulted in several experiences as a student that were made much more difficult for me due to my weaknesses. For example, my crippling fear of talking or speaking to someone in general due to a separate fear of people looking at me judgingly and looking down on me because of the person that I am. This of course is a concern for many people, not just students, but I didn’t just dwell on my uneasiness and instead used something else to drive me, my determination to do well when it comes to anything academically. This burning passion and love of learning is one of my strongest strengths, as represented in my results, that has helped me overcome such challenges.
So, this is the teachers’ duties to make the students pay attention to the lesson when the students feel so bored and lost their concentration during the lesson. Based on my observation, there are some ways to make the students pay attention to the lesson, they are: • The teacher would review the last material, and then she asked the students to memorize the last material about the name of the day and the month. • She said “please focus”
The most important thing that I learned was the fact that even through each students have their own needs, they all respected one another. When a student was talking, others listened and waited for their turn. When a student misbehaved in the classroom, other students did not seemed to judge him or her for it by rolling their eyes those that I saw in class before. The same thing apply to when someone needed something such as a rest. If a student got the answer incorrectly, others did not said “no” or roll their eyes, they simply waited for the student to retry again.
It was really complicated because whenever someone saw that I was down and they asked if anything was wrong, I would act like nothing had happened the rest of the day but inside, only I knew that I was being bullied in the sixth grade. I was miserable. The whole day that was all that I could think about. I could never get out of my head and it would distract me from doing my work in some classes that I had with him. He would throw paper balls at me in the class when the teacher turned her back.
Focusing on learning over results was what set these teachers apart from others. Rather than focusing on getting that "A" in class, these teachers helped me to focus on my own learning and well-being. They helped me maintain my grades, and I found that I was much happier with myself and what I was learning in school. Nevertheless, I have also had many teachers, where from my perspective, were not engaged in what they were teaching and as a result, I was not engaged in my learning. The quality of my work done in these classes declined, and before I knew it, I dreaded these classes.
Readman is Hamizah’s designated personal tutor. Hamizah met Ms. Readman every other week to discuss any issues related to her study in the university. Ms. Readman addressed the concern on Hamizah’s lack of participation in the class. Hamizah explained that she does not usually say anything unless a question is directed at her. Throughout her school years in her home country, Hamizah said that this is how other students normally behave too.
The one whole hour is not only for teaching but it also includes classroom management. Sometimes, I even spent more time telling my students to keep quiet or to stop doing unnecessary things during our class. The time consumed for classroom management is the time lost for teaching. As an aspiring educator, I should, at least, know why my students behave the way they do to minimize the time consume for classroom management. According to Corpuz and Salandanan, there are three possible causes why students misbehave.
One of the most simple answers I came up with was that schools and students have to change because if we don’t we may fall behind. When I say we have to change, I’m saying that we have to get rid of all those boring and unengaging ways of teaching. We have to create an environment that is motivated towards learning and not just getting a letter grade. Recent surveys suggest that “91 to 98 percent” of young students report that they get bored everyday which from Romeo Vitelli indicates that students don’t engage in class. Not because they are on their phone but because they are not interested in what the school is teaching them.
1. By the age of 3, I became tutor for my older classmates, teaching them how to calculate and read books. Yet at the end of our term, the tears burned out my face as I was the only person still stayed in this class, cannot move to the higher level due to not enough age. However, this tutor experience prompted me to be responsible for training new employees in any companies I have worked. 2.
