Only having had the perspective of a student, it was reassuring to see educators seeing a problem and actively seeking a way to fix the problem. Though testing is necessary with the current structure of evaluating students, there is a conscience effort to improve schooling for students. Hoping to stay teaching in Eastern Washington, I am excited to see teachers setting the foundation for change. I hope that I have the opportunity to not only help my students inside the classroom but also in a more political way that will help students that I am not teaching. Like many things that I’ve experienced in these last ten weeks of class, my thoughts on education have definitely been
The second solution that Bob states is that schools should teach all types of school models. Bob says that doing this will make kids much more intelligent because they will learn much more material. This is idea was supported by the “Knowledge Is Power Program”. Also Bob’s thought of doing this is that it will raise the scores of student’s tests. Teachers should learn how to make students more successful and incorporate it in their
There are different ways of making our Anaheim schools better. Right now our schools may be doing good depending on how your perspective towards the schools is, but what if we could improve them? In order to increase student success at Anaheim schools, students must follow protocol called SSLANT. In Gladwell’s research essay, “Margarita’s Bargain,” he explains how SSLANT worked in the school he talked about, KIPP Academy. “In the classroom, they are taught to turn and address anyone talking to them using a protocol known as SSLANT.” This quote made by Gladwell shows how the students are taught to be respectful when talking to someone.
After all, education should come first at schools. Schools don 't want to charge for sports, but many have to. " This shows that the schools spend more money on our school supplies so that we can learn but when it comes time to get sports equipment it 's time for parents to help. In the text, it said “ Gary Frisch, a school
The problem arises when teachers have "added" pressure of making sure everyone succeeds because of these tests on top of the normal stress and pressure of educating their students. I think there should be an increase in formative assessment testing after each concept is taught to see if the student is retaining the information and meeting the standards for his/her level which then helps formulate a realistic and effective
I also believe that teachers would have to alter their syllabi and classwork fastidiously to make sure each and every student would feel comfortable. As a student, I pay to go to school to learn to the highest of my ability. But there is no way that would be possible if trigger warnings and safe spaces started to dominate the academia around me. We must be able to find a way to help students outside of the classroom, while keeping classroom discussion open and honest at the most consistent
Education should not just be about our academics or else we will never get anywhere. It should also be about how to prepare yourself for real-world problems. In school, the teachers are focused more on our academics than our life problems. Although the school does teach us some of the basic life skills that we need, they do not teach us the most important ones that revolve around our lives every single day. “Though high school and college are excellent in
The matter of the fact is that we should never have let ourselves degrade to this point, but since we have, it is time to return. It is time to take drastic measures to have stronger school safeguards by having a stronger checking on school guests, having mandatory counselling for all kids or even arm teachers if need be. No parent should have a second thought about sending their kid to school, or spend sleepless nights thinking about their kids living at college. The National Association of School Psychologists had an article about ‘School Violence Protection’, giving a few tips on improving school safety. An important factor mentioned was to “monitor school guest” (NASP school violence protection).
For example from the article “School Uniforms- Pros and Cons” it says that there is less peer pressure to fit in when they’re not wearing the trendy brands and they’re all wearing the same thing. From the article “Pros and con” it states “Students always want to wear the “popular” brand of clothing and they talk about it too which gets them off topic” (Hertzler,1). By having school uniforms students will stay more focused on schoolwork instead of what the “popular trend” or brand is for that moment. Students like talking about in class what style or type of clothing they’re getting. Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class.
For years schools have bonded through sports programs, now they think they should get rid of them. Being a student in school is harder that it has ever been. The academic standards are so high, it can feel paralyzing. That's why it is so important for schools to invest in sports programs now and in the future. Schools should keep sports programs because sports relieve stress on kids and makes kids look forward to going to school.
First thing to remember, students are not protected from problems or disagreement, issue that happened at home also transfers to school or the inner conflict turn into exterior ones. Especially, as children are not quite skilled to resolve the disputes adequately, for this reason the peer mediation project is practical. Another key point, the traditional problem solving techniques, where adult interferes and makes a decision is to becoming less effective. Notably, students have the ability to solve their issue with proper mediation training. In fact, WJC uses different types of peer, ones that have more influence in the school community and the ones that have less impact, this way the students receive fair
Professionally, as I have written above, I learned more about a future role I can play in a school and different ways to be successful in that role. I gained a new set of eyes for looking at an elementary school. It is easy to assume that all children are nice because they are young, but sadly, bullies are everywhere. I also gained new perspective for day to day life. Just because someone is not outwardly struggling, does not mean that a struggle is not there.
In the article "The secret to Raising Smart Kids" I unaware of the complexities that came along with how to raise a child to have a passion for learning. Carol Dweck offers reasoning why students should be taught that success comes from effort, rather than how naturally brilliant or talented they are. Teaching professionals, and also parents should all become aware of the different types of praise can vastly effect a child 's mind set. Student should be welcoming towards a challenge rather than call it quits. This process of teaching students to rely more effort, and have more of a growth mind-set should become part of the teaching program, this could dramatically create a difference in the behavior of students struggle in school.
Kids that are spanked are more likely to kit others. Kids will follow in their parents footsteps. They were raised that way so they think it is okay. They don’t really know any other way to resolve a problem than by hitting. So if a kid gets into an argument at school they are more likely to hit their peers and other people.
They do not agree that they have a responsibility to go over homework or assist their children at home. If their child does poorly in school they will blame the teacher for not doing their job. In contrast, parents apart of a higher social class tend to be more involved in their child’s school work resulting in high expectations of their children 's success in the classroom. Children become more self driven and motivated to complete their assignments and pass classes in hopes of not disappointing their parents. From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities.
