It also eliminates kids feeling bad if they can 't afford to keep up with the latest styles. I know some people claim that it suppresses individuality, but I believe that a child 's or anyone 's individuality can be expressed in many other ways besides clothes, such as through their hairstyle, their school work, and most importantly through their personality and interactions with others. Where 's the petition?! All for
Identity refers to how people define themselves and others and this can include factors such as age, social class, religion and personality (Jenkins, 2008). Identity can also be defined by race, this is particularly important for this study. Racial identity has been described in terms of a biological category (Spikard, 1992) and from a social dimension (Helms, 1995; Spikard, 1992). When described as a biological category race consists of individuals “physical features, gene pools and character qualities” (Spikard, 1992, p.14). Europeans used these features to group people hierarchically by their physical abilities and moral quality and Caucasians were the pinnacle (Chavez & Guido-DiBrito, 1999).
Juvenile Delinquency is a phenomenon that affects communities worldwide according to media reports, both print and electronic, where worrying images of youths involved in behavior outside societal norm has been highlighted. This issue has been studied by researchers locally, regionally and internationally where results has shown that delinquency has been influenced by a number of factors such as age, gender, race, family circle, environment, socioeconomic status et cetera. This research paper attempts to examine Juvenile delinquency and the effects of social structure on form (III) three students attending secondary schools in Trinidad. A structural functionalist perspective will be used based on factors that influence delinquency such as Poverty, Ideology of hegemony, and discrimination. This research paper draws on existing sociological research and classical social theories to examine juvenile delinquency, and to prove that juvenile delinquency in the schools are linked to social structure, within a sample of the entire form three student population.
Activist Malcolm X once said, “Education is the passport to the future”. His statement has been extended in the views of society as people continue to link education with success in life. To reach this goal a list of mandatory classes have been created in schools. Those in favor of conformity support mandatory classes because each student has an equal opportunity to learn the same content as their peers. However, conformity results in a similar educational track for all students.
Positive reinforcement is the result of behavior that increases the probability that the behavior will reoccur. Positive reinforcement is very common and is likely to occur in everyone’s daily life, from infants to adults. We all experience positive reinforcement and get rewarded for it and these rewards increase the chance that we’ll keep up the positive behaviors. According to edutopa.org, educators believe that the way to effective disciple is by building a relationship with that person instead of punishing them. I agree with this theory and also there are other ways to maintain a positive classroom management, such as: setting the classroom rules at the beginning of each lesson, checks in with all the students to make sure they’re ready, maintaining the student’s dignity, and also treating them equally with fairness.
things as simple as a seating arrangement promotes fairness. every student gets a spot to sit and no desk is any better than another. avoiding favoritism and prejudice is also a way to promote fairness in class. students notice when the same people are called on repeatedly. As a teacher it is important to make sure all students have access to learning.
The educational goals are rarely considered to be very important from the students’ point of view, although some field trips do achieve those goals. As identified by Greene, Kisida, and Bowen (Greene, et al) in their study “The Educational Value of Field Trips”, schools accept the potential for chaos, liability issues, and lost children because they recognize that their mission as educators goes beyond simple academic instruction. Rather, they seek to “also to produce civilized young men and women who would
When writing my educational philosophy I thought and thought about things that could help create a safe environment and how I will make every student feel physically safe, as well as, safe from embarrassment. I want every student in the class to participate and want to ask and answer questions without fear of being
Co-ed schools versus single-sex schools: which will provide a better learning experience for students? The debate over whether or not the genders should be separated in the classroom still stands today. In a society where both men and women have to work together harmoniously, a co-ed education initially seems to be the more viable option since it prepares students for real-world experiences. Although every student has different learning styles, a student would, however, ultimately benefit from the tailored curriculum and comfort of a single-sex educational environment. Students will have a more relaxed learning experience without distractions from the opposite gender.
Secondly I feel that from my experience of AEE, I have been made very aware of the intersections between ability, language and social class. I will take this area of diversity with me throughout my teaching as I feel that it is generally overlooked in schools. The language that some textbooks, exam papers and even teachers use is not suited to the students. The students are not at that level linguistically so I feel that teachers should be aware of this, and incorporate it into their teaching. This could be done by avoiding bias within chosen texts or the assessment techniques applied.
I think standardized test really help you recall everything you 've learned about. I think students take standardized test because it helps them remember everything they have studied about. The purpose is so they don 't forget what they were taught. I think they can be useful for helping you with future things you will learn about. I don 't think there are problems with standardized test I think they are good for refreshing your learning skills.
This gives the teacher and the paraeducator the opportunity to discuss the performance in real time. It allows them to view it and make suggestions immediately. Then these suggestions could be followed by reenacting the scenario implementing the new strategy suggested by the teacher. This also will help the paraeducator get a clearer picture of exactly what the teacher is wanting. While I agree that ongoing assessments should be conducted, it seemed to be a little degrading for the paraeducator that the authors suggest positive feedback immediately.
