They try to improve their score because everybody else has a better one than them so they feel they are not good enough. Should teachers be quitting due to the stress of testing? No, because they don't really go through as much stress as the students do when they are testing and the teachers should also be able to handle these things and not just quit because they think it is too complicated(Occupytheory). Does it affect the way teachers teach their classes? Standardized tests do affect the way teachers teach because they can only teach certain things and not what they think that the students might need.
This is because many students lack information about themselves and find it difficult to understand one’s personality and where one can actually fit in. Also, student do not know where and how to get the right information. Inconsistence information is also a challenge to student in taking appropriate career decision. In addition, the long term effect of career decision making difficulties is having job dissatisfaction. The joy of doing what one likes doing will not be there and the level of production will be low due to lack of interest.
They need time to grade exams and finalize grades from the previous semester, and they only have a short break between school years (Towler). By the time they do this, they might have less than a week to prepare themselves, their lessons, and their rooms (Towler). This is not an adequate amount of time for the teachers and it could impact students learning as well (Towler). Teachers also might have a hard time collaborating with each other because many of them are on different tracks (Towler). Students on different tracks might be learning completely different, or maybe even opposite lessons due to lack of collaboration between their teachers (Towler).
Additionally, it should be said that logic structure of the plan helps to present information in the most convenient and clear way which, in its turn, influences the level of understanding. With this in mind, is should be admitted that a teacher who work basing on this program is able to reach certain successes and help people to understand its main ideas. To evaluate a teacher`s experience it is necessary to keep in mind that the success of the process depends on the quality of the program and on the level of skills which a teacher has. However, it should be said that implementation of this plan showed good results. The thing is that the plan is rather simple and efficient at the same time.
Besides it works best in increasing student communication still and self-esteem; interestingly, it also helps some students who are shy to talk in public or with the teacher to be open and feel comfortable in talking and sharing. Not only improve student learning but peer teaching also facilitates the teaching since it gives the teacher more time in doing other research in teaching. By all these benefits provided by peer teaching, any levels of schools should bring in this learning approach to the classroom since it can provide students opportunities in explaining ideas and participating in activities in which they can learn a great deal like one quote from Jeff Adwood saying “Teaching Peers is one of the ways to develop
Parents sometimes don 't know how to do something and that can get very stressful. Also at times teachers don 't look at their email because they are busy with something else. When a teacher does not respond, some kids worry that they will get in trouble. This can be a very big cause of stress and a very common thing to stress about. If teachers don 't give out so much homework, that could be a very big stress reliever for some people.
Ill-prepared students slow down the learning process for well-prepared students and as a result the well-prepared students are unable to reach their full potential. Again, it is in societies best interest to make well-prepared students a priority over ill-prepared students because they are more likely to be beneficial to the community during and after their schooling is completed. This can not happen if students are being deprived of certain resources throughout their schooling. When unambitious students are put into classrooms it negatively effects the learning process for the rest of the class. Although there are cases of ill-prepared students changing their ways and mind set throughout their attending of university, it is not worth the risk of interrupting the
Race (2002) also added reflection is not helping only when the learning process is failing; it is equally useful to pressurize student teachers learning towards further distances and insights. Korthagen (2002) and Estrada & Grady (2001) also noted that reflection is valuable to solve problems in a rational manner in order to make both the practical and theoretical knowledge complementary to each other. Generally, reflection is an important and transferable skill to enhance student teachers’ lifelong learning in moving back and forth between the theoretical experiences obtained in the classroom and actual work area practices (Dewey, 1938; Luttenberg & Bergen,
Overall, there are many factors that influence school rules, such as power, gender, socioeconomic status and the moral beliefs of the rule makers. Students are often negatively impacted by the rules as they do not believe many of them are fair, and they have no say in creating the rules that govern them for the number of years they spend in school. School rules could be more beneficial if their origins and impacts were confronted. Students rarely question what rules they approve or disapprove of and where these rules come from, though doing so could change how the rules are understood and
The lower level classes would go over material at a slower pace. Going at a slower pace is not a good thing because then they won’t get to all the material that has to be covered. They also got less work done in lower class levels. This is why having classes combined with low and high will improve the amount of work being done for both. Not only does it make it fair if they are thought together, but also lower level students won’t feel as if they are not smart enough to be in a higher-level class since they are all mixed in one room.
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. I think this it is a good thing to praise someone but the examples provided made it seem as though the paraeducator would be receiving the same positive reinforcement that we use on the children. Other than this, I thought the article was great and that it could be used not only in a classroom with paraeducators but that it would also be effective in communicating new strategies to all teachers. I would suggest that this article be shared with teachers and paraeducators, but with administration at the district and school levels as
Many teachers also feel that the amount of data from the test is valuable and can be used to improve their teaching skills. There needs to be a baseline measurement because "We cannot fix what we cannot measure. And abolishing the tests or sabotaging the validity of their results only makes it harder to identify and fix the deep-seated problems
