Did you know that praising your students and children for good grades is the worst thing you can do for them? It sounds counterintuitive, but Carol Dweck, Ph.D. has discovered, unequivocally, that it is true. Praising results sabotages effort! In her fascinating book, Mindset, Dr. Dweck explains all motivational challenges, wonderments, and mysteries according to two different mindsets: fixed and growth. A student with a FIXED mindset will: * Think that effort is bad.
Students’ education should not be sacrifice in order to support bad tenured teachers. Our kids deserve to have the very best teachers they can in the classroom, their future depends on it. In my conclusion, I think we need to have some form of tenure system because we don’t want teachers to be fired for political purposes and retaliation. Teachers should not have to worry what they say in the classroom they’ll be fired because of the principal doesn’t believe in their political point of view or because they disagreed with the principal. However, we don’t even need to have teacher who are poor performer to retain their job for life.
David Brooks successfully persuades his audience through his presentation of his claim, his persuasive writing style, and his usage of emotional appeals. The Other Education written by David Brooks identifies how society lacks the studies of non-scholastic curriculum. Yet, he defines curriculum as a broad term in this article. When thinking about scholastic aspects people ponder the thought of school subjects, however Brooks wishes that society would look past the direct studies. Brooks himself writes, “…Such and such classes, such and such grades, and amassed such and such degrees.” In making this repetitive comment, Brooks dismisses the importance of the syllabus-based education system.
All this joyful news of how standardized testing supposedly creates miracles of our knowledge, increasing student achievement, may be proven wrong or right, but that is not our deepest concerns. A student’s mental/physical health and future as an authentic learner is most at risk here. No matter how many cries from multiple students are heard, they continue to be silenced. Simply put, all standardized testing should be abolished for they are hurting students both in and out of classrooms. As students we deserve the ability to access authentic learning, however, with standardized testing heavily relied on, students are deprived of this interaction.
First off, the relationship between Lyra and Jordan College is healthy based on the daily support given to her and their .At the Jordan College, the scholars, Master, and Lord Asrial teach her manners. They told her to,“ Speak when you 're spoken to, be quiet and polite, smile nicely and don 't you ever say Dunno when someone asks you a question.” As a result, Lyra learns how to have good manners especially in front of the master. Overall, she becomes a better person because of the scholars. Without the scholars help, Lyra would always be embarrassed for making a bad impression in front of the loyal lords and masters. Also at Jordan, the people entertained her in many different ways.
It would prevent readers from understanding the word’s prior applications. When presented in Huck Finn, the presence of it allows students to be educated about the its negative connotation, both historically and in the present. One typical complaint by students and teachers is that the use of the word ‘nigger’ causes discomfort. Francine Prose of the New York Times claims this discomfort by learners can be transformed into a constructive lesson about tolerance through conversation. She writes, “The understandable discomfort the word ‘nigger’ causes students and teachers is part of a conversation; part of the point of reading that book in school is to have that conversation.” The original version of Huck Finn forces readers to encounter attitudes and behavior that would not be acceptable today, which could lead to a more constructive learning environment
Family is people that are the closest to these students, they should be more understanding, open and patient to listen to their children’s worries and problems about universities’ lives (“Coping with bad grades”, n.d.). Friends are another group of people that these students can talk to. Sometimes these students do not possess any help-seeking behaviors so parents and friends have to be observant and approach them first. They might be reluctant at first but if they feel that they can believe in the people they are talking to, they will express their feelings and worries about universities lives. After the talk, parents should understand the reasons why these students are having hard times at universities and feeling stress.
The student just wants to “Get in and get out.” with nobody being hurt or the wiser (162). I can relate to that mentality, and I’m sure that was Straub’s intention. He wanted to make students who don’t care, care. The contrast is apparent with the example of a good peer reviewer Straub provides right before the end of the essay. It helps to shed some light on ways that a past peer reviewer could have helped one of our works and ways many of us could have helped works we have peer reviewed in the past.
To resolve this, I would first wait for their conversation to be over, then I would ask to speak with him alone. I would directly address the problem and tell him that I am bothered by his prejudice against that student's racial/ethnic origins, and that I am worried how it might affect how he treats the student, and I would also tell him that joking about it to our colleagues might also influence their thoughts about the student. I would tell it to him in a respectable manner that doing so is unfair and disrespectful to the student, and since we should be role-models for our students, we should stop doing things like that. I would listen
Nowadays, some student keep complain how tired they are and how puss their advisor is, but they have forgotten that the tough road was chosen by themselves. It’s wise to appreciate such a great opportunity to learn from excellent scientist and study with intelligent peer. Also, having a good relationship with professors might gain a mentor for your
I nominate Dr. Nick Lynchard because he’s a very influential teacher and cares deeply about his students. When I tool Psy 101 with Dr. Lynchard he spoke about more than just his subject matter and focused on teaching us things about academia that nobody else does at this level. I’ve never been concerned about how my outward appearance or the way I carried myself would matter in meeting people or getting accepted into better colleges. He taught me about how to get in to graduate school and the politics behind that and what I could expect. He put great stress on the factors of cinching down and doing well in classes that I had little or no interest in and to fully submerge myself in the life on the fields I am interested well before I’m actually
Jennifer, I am glad that you feel better about the class. When I became overwhelmed about an assignment in my previous classes, I emailed my professor for guidance and a little support. The professors at Mid America are very understanding about the outside factors that can cause stress and sometimes it is difficult to concentrate on homework. Just remember to communicate with the professor if you are having a difficult time understanding something, which helped me out in most of my classes.
The student author of the editorial seems to respect the honor code Groveton expects from its students, yet the author assumes the code itself is solely responsible for the alleged reduction in cheating at the school. Citing a survey to further empahsize the aforementioned assumption, the author only invites more speculation on the topic rather than providing further evidence as intended. While cheating is a frowned upon topic in all universities, this editorial is rife with assumptions and fallacious deduction, rendering the argument weak and unconvincing. First, the reporting system for Groveton 's novel honor code and the "old-fashioned" system it replaced both relyed solely on a human witness for reporting. Teachers used to monitor students and the new protocol calls for students to monitor each other and report any instances of cheating.
Having an Honor Code will fracture the trust that students have with teachers. Would the honor Code really be worth all the examples of division among student body and faculty that I talked about. The answer is No, it wouldn’t be, because Fairmont Heights need a balance and it has it. Students keep to themselves and let other students do their own thing and deal with their own problems. The balance is key to the continuation of Fairmont Heights social order and without it, things would be much worse in the the eyes of students like
