Another way of the various ways of helping the homeless is by teaching to and about the homeless. “Tutor homeless children - A tutor can make all the difference. Just having adult attention can spur children to do their best. Many programs exist in shelters, transitional housing programs, and schools that require interested volunteers. Or begin you own tutor volunteer corps at your local shelter.
Today, both fathers and mothers have limited time for their children. For example, most parents are concentrating on their work so much that they don't even know what grade their child is in. Parents should at least spend one hour a day spending time with them. For example, in the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch shows that he is an attentive listener by listening
There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010). The very first strategy for helping children that become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, is to first build a trusting relationship with them while they are in your class.
That comment from his mother stayed with him for years to come. I do not want to be that person that says something negative that will never get out of a student’s mind. I want to be the teacher that they remember as always being helpful and who always encouraged them to succeed. I will also have to watch out for other students in schools that could be picking on the disabled student. Hopefully this would not be a big problem, but there are many
He stated and gave many examples to try and prove his point through. In many ways I agree with him, students should do what they are interested in, but some may be lazy and not do anything which is why they might need that help that teachers provide. At the end of the day I think teachers do feel like they taught at least one person something new that day which might help them out with their future college path or occupations. But, at the same time I disagree because I think most should attend school not just for their grades and their parents, but also for themselves. Just knowing what is going on around you gets you feeling
When children are forced out over and over again it makes them feel unwanted or that they did something wrong. Patricia George writes, “Shuttling children off to a strangers home for a period of days or weeks, only to be potentially shuttled off to another home… simply underscores the frightening and traumatic experience of seeing ones family fall apart” (George and Walker). Not only do children have to deal with the constant moving around, they also have to deal with complications such as sibling separation. Sometimes a family isn't always looking to foster or adopt more than one child at at time so social workers tear brothers and sisters apart. In some cases, siblings will never see each other for years or even ever
With the invitation to education most students wouldn’t achieve as high of a standard they are capable of. I believe this is a major part in education. Most teachers know the educational abilities of every student, but when they see that an individual isn’t reaching that mark they push them to do better for the benefit of the student. In both of these stories the teachers believed that the student could do better, and they tried their best to show the student what their capabilities are. One of the hardest parts in education for the students is to get the invitation from their teachers.
He also needs his teacher, Siobhan’s help in school to make every day skills easier for Christopher to understand. In time he goes from needing constant help to being less needy. He uses his sources wisely instead of simply seeking the immediate help. Instead he is selective with when he asks for help from the people he knows. He knows He becomes observant and knows when to ask for help.
Others think that they are giving their children all that they need and shouldn’t be getting paid for helping out because the parents already do the majority of the work. Parents and children disagree a lot about money whether it’s that the parents won’t buy them a toy or get them something from a vending machine. This problem causes many dissagrements between the parents and children. I think that children should not get paid for helping with the house work because they won’t get paid for house work when they are adults. I think that getting paid for chores teaches children that housework is something they should want to avoid and money isn't the best
Many parents, teachers, and other adults say that us student are being lazy, or dramatic that we really don’t have that much to do, they could be wrong in some cases, there’s alot more to us students than a teacher or parent can see. Stress is something that everyone has delt with, parents working over time to make sure they meet that deadline. Students have the same problem, except they have about 8 deadlines to meet in one day, just imagine having a two-page essay, a 100 question final, a 20 slide powerpoint, and another 50-question
