Letting a kid do whatever he/she wants to do can be dangerous for a school. Enforcing positive discipline on students can lead to schools being more protected, and that will make a student more happy and successful. In my paper, I stated the evidence last paragraph that said, “Positive School Discipline is integrated into the policies, programs, and practices of a school and is applied systemwide—in the classroom, school, and community—to create a safe, supportive learning environment for all students.” This evidence leads me to think that school’s who have supportive learning environments will be safer. People who believe kids need to be free in school, well, they’re wrong. Keeping students safe is the number one priority for most school’s staff members, and letting kids disregard the rules at school will be breaking that agreement, and will later lead to deeper
Research recognizes parent involvement as an important factor in the quality of a child's education. Joyce Epstein's School-Family-Community Partnership Model is an important model in research and practices surrounding parent involvement. As a framework for increasing parental participation in education, Epstein’s model recognizes six different types of involvement in regards to education. Through her work, Epstein encourages schools to develop activities that work within the six types, as well as instill these types in practices around the home. Parent involvement is as a major factor in improving the quality of a child's education.
To apply formative assessment effectively in the classroom, teachers have to know about formative assessment principles so that they can optimize the opportunities for gathering evidence. In so doing, it helps improve students’ learning process. Black and William (1998a) “set out four main headings for formative assessment practice: sharing learning goals, questioning, self/ peer assessment and feedback”. o Sharing learning goals: teachers give students an opportunity to get involved in what they are learning through discussing and deciding the criteria for success, which they can then use to recognize proof of improvement. Hence, information about learning objectives as well as success criteria needs to be presented in clear, explicit language which students can understand.
Samantaray (1971) researches on teacher effectiveness have established the fact that teachers attitude and teachers effectiveness are positively related. Examples of these attitudes include wanting to teach and “doing it from the heart” enjoying the work, being dedicated to the job and to the children. Positive attitudes towards teaching and one’s own performance can in my view significantly contribute to classroom success; there is also the positive interpersonal relationship which is necessary to foster a connection between the teacher and students. Participating in student activities, enjoy being with them, caring for them, being interested in them and trusting them displays a positive attitude. Hence the fact that research has shown that “Success in the classroom is mapped to positive behaviours.” Samantaray (1971).
Students should have a good understanding of the assessment marking criteria. The design of these marking criteria involves the discussion of learning outcomes. The implementation of self-assessment involves a lot of effort, reflection and planning on behalf of the tutor. Students should be made to perceive self-assessment as a natural process in their learning. They should be actively involved in its implementation and its importance in lifelong learning.
Value based education instils educational and cultural values among students and aims at achieving multi-faceted development of a human being namely intellectual, physical, spiritual and ethical development. The values incorporated in a value-based curriculum may include cooperation, responsibility, happiness, simplicity, unity, peace, respect, love, tolerance, honesty, humility, and freedom. The main purpose of holistic education is to prepare students to meet the challenges of living as well as academics. Education can be considered as a means to impart general and specific information; teaching skills and most importantly inculcate values. Education should be a process of acquiring true knowledge.
Good teachers will create good environment for learning, but it shouldn't be boring or blank. A teacher should know how to do a fun and interesting learning methods, it should be vital to student success and impact students. The more positive the environment the more students produce. This way could make the students produce more, hard workers and have high achievement, because that make students more comfortable and confident (2003, para, 1). Positive learning environment contain bright posters, cooperative learning arrangements and organized spaces.
Teachers’ attitude was found to significantly influence intention to use technology in inclusive education classroom. This implies that there is a positive relationship between teachers’ attitude and their intention to use technology. From the direct influences attitude have on intention, it is clear that teachers who believed in the use of technology would find it beneficial to use them. It is reasonable to conclude that when teachers have positive attitudes toward inclusive education; these attitudes reinforce their intentions to use technology and consequently, lead to participation of children with special needs in the learning process. Once these children are fully engaged through the use of technology there is every reason to suggest
It drives learning paradigm, which is aimed at student learning, and focused on what the student does. Eventually, besides providing a grade to students, it fosters their commitment by supporting active learning. Therefore, the evaluation process should be authentic, fair, valid and reliable. How to evaluate? The answer to the question how to evaluate heavily depends on what should be evaluated.
Unfortunately, this will make it harder for the schools to educate students as problematic behaviours are likely to interfere with the education process. There are some reasons as to why students behave inappropriately that lead to severe problems of student behaviour therefore there are also solution to demolish the students’ problems. First and foremost, parents play as an important role model to their children. But nowadays, many parents do not have the time or the skills required to teach their children the value of manners and respecting others. Parenting practices are another common cause of poor student behaviour, according to researchers at The University of Science and Technology in Pakistan.
