Teaching assistants must be aware of all statutory frameworks that affect their own delivery of the curriculum, health and safety, child protection and any others aspects of school life whether it be social or academic. A. Equality of opportunity. Classroom assistants have an important role in ensuring pupilsâ€™ equal access to opportunities to learn and develop. Some pupils need additional or different support in order to have equality of opportunity, and classroom assistants are often employed to provide this for individuals or small groups of pupils. Sometimes, working under the direction of the teacher, classroom assistants will work with the whole class in order to free up the teacher to work with individual pupils who need special attention.
In every school there are set policies and procedures so that all people working within the school are aware and stick to the same rules. Consistency is imperative. All adults working in the school would be : teaching staff, support staff, lunchtime supervisors, kitchen staff, governors, after school staff and temporary staff. There are many policies in schools that children and staff should be aware of.
According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades.

We all have to recognize our problems and be there for each other, otherwise we’ll end up like Holden. Denying teachers from being able to discuss the book in a class setting, teenagers would miss the point and would think Holden was a foul person and had no
(1) Standardized Tests Are Ineffective Standardized tests in elementary and secondary schools are ineffective because they aren 't taken seriously, don 't accurately portray one 's intelligence, and they change the way students view themselves. When students take standardized tests, many don 't take them seriously which affects the data collected, creates a lack of school interest, and increase of stress. The purpose of standardized tests is to evaluate students individually and as a whole through academics. When students don 't try their best, their full capabilities and knowledge aren 't reflected by the test scores collected making it hard for educators to gage what needs or doesn 't need improvement.
Fairness, the idea of having impartial and just treatment or behavior without favoritism or discrimination. In 1984, a specific law, named “No Pass, No Play” rule had been passed, which contrasts the idea of fairness. This rule ensures that students who lack passing grades will lose their spot on their school team. Since this rule is in play, more students will feel they should cheat more in order to pass, along with this, more kids will become obese considering they may not be on outside teams. Finally, these student athletes, who do spend time focusing in school maybe only taking one hard class, (and maybe failing) but will still not be on the team, which does not represent fairness.
All students want in school is to get good grades and sometimes they will get desperate and being desperate leads to cheating. When students cheat all they think about is getting a good grade most of the time. Other students don’t care about school and they cheat. This can affect not only the student his/her self if they get caught but it can affect the class and how other students learn, because if one student sends out a test or homework than other students will have it and then pretty soon most students will have it and not have learned anything. There’s is no conclusion to cheating, because no matter what, students will cheat weather they know if it 's right or wrong.
Then they can identify students that are struggling with the class. “Critics contend that tests can contain culturally biased content that may be unfamiliar to minorities and recent immigrants. Moreover, for students with learning disabilities or who process information differently”(Beaupré). They say that the tests are not fair for students with learning disabilities and recent immigrants ,that do not have much understanding of the culture, because some questions are culturally based, so therefore students do not understand the questions and they do not get them right which affects their performance. Also also schools are cutting off material that is not in the test, forcing teachers to ignore content that is not in the test.
If you don't know what the 4th Amendment is, it guards against unreasonable searches and seizures. If students are tested for drugs they may get discouraged about life and want to commit suicide, or they might not try as hard in their school work. Student athletes should not be tested for drugs because it takes money out of their education. Student athletes should not be tested for drugs because it takes money out of their education. They should not test them because it costs so much for a test and to test a couple hundred student athletes.
Positive Behavioral Support System is a systematic approach to proactive behavior support in schools, to help school improvement and student learning (Sailor, Stowe, Turnbull III & Kleinhammer-Tramill , 2006). When you have a positive action to a child misbehaving, the action you take will affect him positively very much whether the child is in elementary school or in high school. It will affect every student in any grade level. We can effectively teach a good behavior to all students with our behavior. All children can exhibit appropriate behavior.
Michael P. Auerbach, a journalist that argues that school fees should not effect if you can play in sports or other school activities state's, “School administrators have begun charging fees for classroom supplies,school athletic programs,academic clubs, and other activities.” Which if you do not pay you do not get to participate. gTo me that is unfair. A kid that wants to be involved in a sport but cant just because of money. Michael P. Auerbach,a journalist that notices that, “In light of these current trends, most school districts in the united states have been forced to implement budgets that cut programs, reduce staff, and also close schools.”
Caught in the Action For my behavior modification project, I chose to eliminate the number of times that I would bite my nails. This project was taken over the course of eight continuous days. For the first four days, I tracked and recorded the number of times I was biting my nails during a half-hour time span and what situational factors and stimuli caused me to do this. Following the first four days, the next four days I chose a positive reinforcer that would help me from biting my nails.
