They are used to “judge” or “measure” the knowledge or skills that students learn in school. B. The problem with these standardized tests is that they measure all students on the same material, leaving out special skills the student may have. It also puts a great deal of stress on a student to know that they will be timed on these questions that require critical thinking. Furthermore, if students perform poorly, it falls back on the teacher and they could possibly lose their job.
According to Lewis (2009) in his book “Understanding Pupil Behaviour: Classroom Management Techniques For Teachers” mentioned that there are some effects if the teachers don’t know about the students’ characteristics such as stress and Post-Guru Syndrom. Stress happens when they feel unable to maintain an classroom in which students can get on with their work and teachers can teach without unnecessary interruption, it is usually part of failure teacher in managing the classroom misbehavior of students and Post-Guru Syndrom happens when the teachers become inconsistent to implement the appropriate technique in teaching for students and finally
This author show a serious tone to the reader because of the fact that teachers have the fear of losing their job which they make the living of off and just like doing and also the fact is that if the teachers classes are too hard the students could go around and advice other students to then not take the teachers class this what professor Rojstaczer states. The author makes the reader understand and capture picture of what it’s like to be a teacher and the things that they have to go threw. Also student have the right to give an evaluation of teachers online so if there is a lot of students that can say this teachers class was bad and no one want to take the teachers class then the Vice President of the class will have to look into the teacher and the class which can cause them to be
In his essay, Freire talks about education being similar to political oppression because students don 't get to take part. He believes that the student and the teacher should learn from each other, similar to the Montessori learning style. Montessori classrooms typically provide hands-on activities and they allow the student to be creative. When I was growing up I went to a Montessori school, and I can personally say that the hands-on learning helped me a lot because I think that I can learn better if I actually practice the task that is given to me. I think that students will learn better if they get to practice school work in class, instead of the teacher doing all of the work.
The worse part is that I have to peer teach the whole class. Next, I ask myself was what about roleplay? Role play is something that I try to avoid mostly. As I hated to stand in front the whole class, what more I have to "act". However, after attending the lesson I realized that I can do it with the help of my group mates, research, and self-confidence which was slowly gain after seeing everyone including my group member able to present and not being shy to act when we were doing our role play.
For this assignment, I will be choosing to reflect on Palmer’s book The Courage to Teach. He impressed me as from the beginning since he tells us that the emphasis of throughout the entire book is built on the fact that the identity and integrity of the teacher are the basis of good teaching rather than having good teaching technique since the identity and integrity of the teacher are able to connect with his/her students and hence, connect them to the subject being taught. She should make himself/herself available and vulnerable to “the service of learning”. Critical Reflection The first part of this book encourages me to find myself; it encourages me to have a strong sense of self. This should be done before I can teach students.
Exactly, see I believe the reason there are benefits in my opinions on having inclusion in the classroom, because it teaches the general education compassion and willing to support their peers. For fact, they see them struggling. Though I believe the rare benefits to having inclusion in the class with change there are always challenges. Yet I believe the teachers will have the biggest change as they will learn how to manage a classroom with students that learn on different levels. “Part of the problem, I think, was that we were desegregating with- out any regard whatsoever for if that particular child belonged in that particular class” (Carpenter, 2008, p. 136).
Punishment Alan Kazdin uses strategy writing to appeal to the readers who are most likely a parent or a child getting punished. Alan Kazdin offers parents classes, and, in these classes, he speaks about punishment. Alan Kazdin uses his opinion, due to his credibility from teaching the course he states a few good points in his class. Like even if spanking a child might make the parent feel better but, in reality it may not change the behavior of the child. A child has feelings and what Alan Kazdin is showing is spanking may actually have no effect except for, psychological effect.
More over, Francis discusses how the children are lacking the basic manners required to be successful and to help them down the road. It can be easily said that by following the famous quote, “treat others how you would want to be treated” can come into play with this. The controversy strikes between the parents and teachers, trying to be determined on who should be responsible when the parent’s child acts towards adults. To illustrate, Francis uses several examples to make sure that the content is clear to the audience. Author Ed Francis stated this by saying,” This reminds me of a time in 6th grade (1980) when three boys were giving a substitute teacher a particularly hard time and the substitute left and came back with our assistant principal.
While it is a bit of an exaggeration, students clearly feel that classroom-based speaking practice does not prepare them for the real world. Is why I choose to do small but very concrete steps on how to express a simple idea like What are the priorities on your life?, giving the example with my ideas on the board as the same time it was expressed, the students seemed to get the activity instruction clearly so they proceeded to wrote and then speak with a partner about they priorities they wrote down before. Research by Peter Skehan5 on Task-based Learning shows that giving student’s preparation time significantly increases the range of language used in the performance of the task, whereas the accuracy of the language is not as influenced. If this is so, then it seems sensible to give students preparation time when encouraging them to use new language.
