The Physical Education classes in Rio Linda High School have fallen victim to the distorted version of Physical Education. Staff members who teach the course(s) in Rio Linda High School do not focus on students as individuals anymore, but as groups of students. It is not their fault though, it was the way the were taught to teach. Standardized tests dictate whether or not a student will move up in the course, but in the time span before the tests, students just play games or sports and run. Group sports such as soccer, racquetball, basketball, and football have taken the places of truly beneficial individual sports that actually prepare students for their standardized tests.
Sports can also help kids learn to interact and take direct orders from adults and how to follow directions. To be successful on the athletic field and in life kids are going to need to be able to listen to given directions or orders and take them and apply them to whatever there are doing to try and be the best at whatever they are doing. Whether the kid listens to the directions or not will show on the athletic field because the end result will not be what was expected or the goal or task will not be met. One other benefit from sports is it builds leadership and communication skills that can help them in school and in life. To be successful in athletics you have to communicate with each other and to do so you need to be able to block out whatever else is going on and focus on communicating with teammates and working towards your goal.
She discloses that the boys in her class are quite vulnerable because they have learning disabilities. There was even a time when she had to teach two 16-year-old boys how to write their names. All the classes in Feltham prison have a maximum of eight pupils, which means each boy is getting more attention than if they were in a regular school. Dewar-Langridge say they are required to teach the boys 30 hours a week, which is more than the average full-time in college. Meeting parents during legal
Before the situation escalated, my teacher carried on with her lesson to diffuse the tension in class. Though the confrontation was brief, it sent a stinging and powerful message to the bullies; I was no longer fazed by their name-calling and degrading remarks as I had become impervious to any diabolical plans hatched by them. School was stressful but more bearable since the incident. I felt lighter and it was easier to breathe because I was no longer carrying my cumbersome bag of worries with me. That day, I felt that I finally caught the ball in the game ‘monkey in the middle’.
Middle-class children are more assertive when asking for things of the teacher to make their life easier or more comfortable (Lareau, 2002). Parents argue with schools on behalf of the child with a sense of entitlement. In Lareau’s study (2002) when a black middle-class child fails to get into the gifted program, her mother argues that results from a previous test which she scored higher in should be used to decide instead and she is successful. Some middle-class parents were forceful. They debate with the doctor and have an equal conversation.
Kenny continued to remind the students of these cues throughout the lesson. Kenny incorporated the skills of bumping and setting into his first activity. Half of the students were lined up on the right side of the net, and the remaining students were on the left side. The children on the right side of the net set the ball to their peers on the left side. The students receiving the set then proceeded to bump the ball over the net.
According to Pope every class where a test was given, cheating occurred (Palmer). She also added, “Students feel as if their life success depends on getting the top SAT scores and the highest grades” (Palmer). After Palmer talked to the children she found out that the students know that cheating is wrong and they wish they didn’t do it. The students feel that the most important act is getting good grades, “by hook or by crook”
Kids and young adults have not received the punishment needed to teach obedience and respect. Corporal punishment becoming illegal in different schools give students more freedom than needed as in disrespect and act out. According to Tim Walker, a journalist from Procon.org, On April 20, 2017, 76% of men and 65% of women agreed that a child should receive a good spanking . If this punishment were still legal to this day in schools, then today’s generation of youth would learn much easier why respect and obedience to adults and even other younger kids is important. Given that this punishment has been shown that it is a behavior adjustment, then this should give teachers, principals, or other staff members at any schools the right to spank students for the disobedience or the disrespect that is often being shown or given.
My earliest memories about science teachers are probably just getting into middle school around the 6th grade. I remember having a crazy science teacher do would sprinkle us with magic fairy dust to help us learn better but, my class going from elementary school to middle school was a big deal for our age group and she was still treating us like children when, in reality, we felt cool and much older to actually be up in the middle school. I remember the whole class often goofing around the whole time because we felt like the teacher made us feel young and we acted out for her treating us that way. The only thing I remember is how much this science teacher loved wolves and watching a live recording of a mother and baby eagles. I think I don’t remember much from this class because she never did anything too interesting with science that was cool to me or any of my classmates.
The researcher used a “Foreign Language Anxiety Scale” in her study and the findings show that 60.6% of the participants expressed a fear of socially negative evaluation as the major reason behind increases in anxiety when games were lost. The same argument, that using games accelerates children’s anxiety when teachers adapt games in the teaching of English, is also made by Zeng (2005). In the study, 803 pupils were asked to do a questionnaire survey as part of a multiple staged cluster sample. One of the results states those children’s motivation decreases and their anxiety increases because their classmates keep pushing them during games. From such research, and other studies conducted by Wu (2002), Chuang (2007), and Zeng (2005), it can be shown that playing games can increase children’s anxiety largely as a result of peer
