These students accepted that they did not have the same opportunities as the white children, even though in reality they were at the school with the same options. Two concepts used in this study included the Agentive and Interpellative approaches of Critical Race Theory. Interpellative Critical Race Theory puts an emphasis on an identity as singular and imposed, an example would be your one identity is only race. This concept separates each identity from the other. While, Agentive Critical Race Theory places the emphasis on multiple and mutable identities.
Educators need to use multiple sources to engage Hmong students so that information can be articulated accurately as to avoid confusions and misinformation. Yang also stresses the importance of finding credible sources and then filter the information from the collection of sources in order to allow Hmong students to expand their understanding and access to knowledge. Educators and professionals need to take precedence in ethical and responsible scholarships so that the information used to empower Hmong youths are accurate and avoid
Administrator and teachers view their role as exclusively teaching the students about academics and feel that speaking up about racial tension as “political” and they would rather stay calm and avoid controversial topics (Hardie, 2013). The school understands there’s racial tension, but they rather stay out of the situation to protect their selves and their character. Sweeping racial problems under the rug prolongs racism. The earlier the problem of racism’s identified and addressed, the quicker racism will reside. Rural schools ought to add diverse courses which educate the students on Malcolm X, the Confederate flag significances, and different culuture values.
Previous research suggests that direct interventions and discussions about race can help (Staiger 2006) (Hardie, 2013). A course in rural areas that educate the middle school, high school, and teachers on colorblind racism and how it occurs should be taught. This type of racism should be addressed early to stop the students from going through life being racist and not realizing they are doing it. They should learn that it is not right to judge any student by their skin color or
This results in a beautiful hybrid of empirical data, theory, and fascinating narratives that works to analyze how forms of subordination shape the Chicana/o pipeline, while also exposing how institutions, structures, and discourses of education maintain discrimination based on gender, race, class and their intersections. Ideally schools would provide equal education and opportunities for all children, but in reality racism, sexism, classism, and other forms of discrimination still exist, albeit more hidden, in our schools today. Rather than stressing academic enrichment, the elementary schools that Chicanas/os attend to focus on academic remediation and a deceleration of the curriculum. The primary curriculum itself generally excludes or minimizes Chicana/o experiences, while also reinforcing
So I do like the book because of the morality development fact, the overflow of racial comments and actions outweigh the educational value of the morality development. I do not think this book should be taught in today 's school system and i think we need to move on to better
Knowing their needs is important to adapt the practices and to respect them as individuals. According to the author (Raymond, 2012), the perception of the students about the services they receive determine the outcome of the education efforts. For that, the teachers ' role is to guarantee that the student does not feel inferior, unequal, wich would be the negative conotation of the special education placement (Raymond, 2012). Instead of focusing on their difficulties, teachers should focus on reducing the gaps with more inclusive
Coats mentions we must “move from the classroom as the locus of instructional delivery, to the student as the focus of instructional attainment.” His opinion, by this, is that focusing on individual students’ needs instead of engaging them in a full classroom is the best solution- using other means than instructional delivery is not only okay but appropriate. Rosenblum opposes this by saying we “internalize an ethos of caution.” He believes that instead of catering to the individual student, forcing them to learn different methods is a better way to go. Their points are strongly made, but contrast dramatically. According to both men, their methods have been applied successfully. Clearly, they believe that their approaches benefit the students.
The term stresses the flexible and meaningful actions through which bilinguals select features in their linguistic repertoire in order to communicate appropriately. Translanguaging is more than code switching, which considers that the two languages are separate systems and are switched for communicative purposes. For Velasco and García (2013), translanguaging is not a mere strategy, but rather it becomes a “framework for conceptualizing the education of bilinguals as a democratic endeavor for social justice.” Teaching practices that jeopardize this reality essentially undermine the right to learn of language-minority children. (Velasco, 2014, p.
According to Wagner, humanistic approach is primarily a reaction to the two major views of humanity which are the Freudian perspective and the behavioral perspective thus humanitaristic approach is the “third force”. Humanistic approach highly gives emphasis to the individual that learning how to learn is more important than acquiring factual knowledge. Teachers can play their role in helping the students how to learn and their thinking gives emphasis rather than teachers’ teaching determination. Likewise, the Multiple Intelligence (MI) theory is also a very useful model for developing any systematic approach for nurturing and training learners and respecting their individual needs and strengths within a classroom setting. According to Emmer and Evertson (2009) multiple intelligence aids teachers in easily creating more personalized and diversified instructional experiences.
Teachers have to be vigilant in asserting an effort to make sure that student 's study habits do not weigh in when calculating a student 's grade. Students who are underserved need to have an opportunity based on their achievements rather than what statistical data predicts in terms of success. Racial profiling will be an embedded divisive device that will keep minorities from that gleam of hope if we
Bias and the Law relates to my goals as an educator because it will help me gain a better perspective on which people with disabilities and special education are viewed in society. It also helped me realize why people believe special education can be too costly, burdensome, and infective. It also taught me the biases towards people with disabilities still exists, and why it can be a civil rights issues. Cultural Attitudes relates to my goals as an educator because knowledge on a family cultural beliefs can help me work with students with disabilities and their families on an individualized education plan that best suits their needs. It also taught me that every culture views disabilities differently some view it positively others try to hide
The disciplinary practices currently used in our school systems present a major issue on the quality of education in this country. Our education system should strive to implement disciplinary policies that foster a safe and supportive environment for every learner. Unfortunately the current zero tolerance policies have led to widespread disciplinary actions of school exclusion, which have not only been proven to be ineffective , but also have been correlated with increased negative academic and social consequences, especially for those of disadvantaged populations (Skiba & Losen, 2016). This paper will demonstrate the evidence showing the negative effects of the zero tolerance philosophy and suggest a new approach that social workers in the education field can implement to create a more inclusive environment for children from every population. The Problem Following the implementation of similar policies in state and federal drug legislation, zero tolerance policies were introduced into school
