Instead of being punished if students where to pick their own classes they could focus more on the class that they already like and are good at and then continue to advance in that class rather than being held back by a class that they don 't understand. Schools should allow their students to choose their own classes because students would be more focused and would benefit more from learning about classes that will help them in their future. All schools from
In the future, I would like to be a school psychologist to ensure each student receives best support to learn and help teachers teach every student not just one. As I read the text, I wish that there were more qualified professionals available to these students because it could positively impact how the students view themselves and their
It also leads me to want to work harder to become more culturally aware, and diverse for my future students and willing to do what I can to break down barriers that may be created by students of different cultures or religions. My school also was not the kindest to those that may have a different sexual orientation which also upset me because I had been raised to treat everyone with kindness until I was given a reason not to. Just because students had a different color skin, different beliefs, or different love, never meant that one does not deserve to be treated like everyone else in the school. This portion of IDEA is crucial to me in the aspect of equality and living equally throughout society and in a school
Since then my only responsibility has been to take everything I can from the education that I am offered. I consider taking the education I am offered to be my responsibility to America because by studying for the tests, paying attention in class, and doing homework my overall education allows me to become a better person, it allows me to grow in knowledge and not make the same mistakes that were made in the past. To see all of the people in history who have failed, and not given up just because their experiment did not work for 9,999 times. Education allows me to be someone that can give to the world and our country instead of taking. It allows me to build character, to become a better person who can keep going and not give up in life, and be someone who can make our country even greater than it already is.
I also know that it is ok to like kids that you know are really great. I know that all educators constantly make changes to improve the lives of their students. So now I am asking for one more change, a change that is simple but not easy but could cause and astounding change for so many. All I am asking you to do is to stop asking students, “What did you do this time?” Assume that all students are in the right and if they aren’t work towards resolution and not humiliation. Let them know that .you don’t have to fit in “somewhere” to fit in at your own high school.
Students Justifying Their Mathematical Thinking No matter what subject you teach or no matter how you teach it, it is fair to say that teachers want the best possible outcomes for their students. There are no set guidelines on how to teach or no step by step structure which guarantees student understanding. However, there are methods of teaching which work better than others and it is our responsibility, as teachers, to research and apply these successful methods in our classrooms. One such method is the practice of getting students to justify their thinking and their approaches to mathematical problem solving. At first thought, this may seem like an easy approach and one which can be implemented straight away.
Rong explains, “In many cases, Asian American students are expected to succeed without particular attention, assistance, or support, despite their English language learner status.” Asians are perceived as the ones who will excel in any class, but what about the ones who need more assistance with their studying? Teachers cannot label all of their Asian students as the smartest in the class, they must take on each individual to find out their specific need in order to enhance the overall learning experience. Stereotypes give wrong conceptions to everyone; consequently, the labeling blocks students from reaching their full
However, conformity results in a similar educational track for all students. Schools should fully support individuality and give students a choice of what classes they would like to take. Full support of individuality can be accomplished by removing mandatory classes that can be repetitive such as the mathematical classes of Algebra. Other
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.
Everyone has the same right to study and to obtain enough education today, and it must be available to everyone equally. People say that is just the way it is, and they tend to think there are no problem with it if they do not suffer from any inequalities. In fact, however, there are some issues which must be resolved by society because some people are not able to gain access to third level education. This easy will discuss the reason why such inequalities of education exist, strategies to deal with them, and other issues from two aspects: financial circumstances and disabilities. Money is one of the biggest factors to obtain a good education.
After realizing that I did not want to control the behaviors of the students I started to work to make each student feel comfortable and safe. I worked to put myself in each students shoes and consider what would make me comfortable in their situation. I found that by respecting each student as an equal that not only would they respect me but also that they worked better with each other when they were comfortable. It has been easy for me to notice how vulnerable the self esteem of many high school students is and I work hard to help increase the self-confidence of every
The majority of students at Morris High were white or Asian, and the school had the latest computer technology, glorious landscaping, high teacher salaries, and offered students with a variety of foreign languages to study. The interactions that Kozol had with the students from East St. Louis were drastically different from those with the students of Morris High. The students from East St. Louis were poorly educated, as they had faulty grammar and vocabulary, struggled with the concept of time, and had inadequate social skills. These deficiencies are be observed through Kozol’s discussion with the children about the rape and murder of a young girl, who happened to be the sister of one of the children. The discussion Kozol had with the students from Morris High, on the other hand, was completely different.
English was not my second language, but I did know what it was like to learn a language and how frustrating it could be. Because of this, I want to be as much help to them as possible. Tenorio says, “It is not the awareness of racial and cultural differences that leads to prejudice and racism, but how people respond to these differences” (p. 26). Every student is different. It is up to me and every other future teacher out there to always be available to their students as well as to be open minded and
Teachers are giving you pratice test after practice test trying to get you ready for the real one when they should be trying to teach you what you need to know for those tests. In the classroom,there are more opportunities for people to learn at their own pace and in their own way,but when taking all of the test they are required to take,it makes it harder and harder for that to happen,”It has been suggested that performance assessments, popularized as an important component in educational reform movements, will reduce differences among groups because they provide students with hands-on opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of how to solve problems rather than requiring students to simply recall facts” (Shavelson 4). When people are in any classroom setting they would much rather learn things to help them in their future they just recall facts that have no relevance to their lives or career choices. Preparing and studying for a test that revolve around topics that have no purdance in your life as well as a waste of time and money,yes in school you have to learn some things that you most likely will never use but that comes with being in school,but having a whole test revolve around things you will not need is just a waste. So why waste all that when you could use all that time and money for things that
It is hard for ELL students to perform well on assessments that they are unable to read and/or comprehend. In my future classroom, I will make strive to use mathematics questions that are unbiased for all of my students. I will make sure that my ELLs understand the assessment and what is expected of them prior to giving the exam. I will also offer extra support for my ELLs in all subjects not only math. This will help ensure that all students in my classroom have an equal opportunity to be
