More than dearth of teaching skills, lack of willingness to learn new things proves detrimental for teachers. By keeping themselves abreast of the contemporary trends and aching for learning innovative ideas, teachers are able to draw students attention. Things go awry for teachers when they deliver lessons without trying to know if students are really interested to listen to them. All of a teachers efforts should be directed towards keeping the interests of students alive and catering to the needs and requirements of students. This is how you also stop panning your lessons based on your whimsical ideas.
“Learning how to think,” means that people can think independently, originally, and abstractly. People are beginning to question the way people think in today’s society. The reason we are failing to formulate new ideas or think, is because young adults are educated to be disciplined at a specific area of study. They are not taught to be unique or to stray from the teachings of the professor, instead they are trained to conform. Students take the views of teachers to suck up to them, which causes them to get lost in their own thought and opinion.
The two main Characters, Dewey Finn (SOR) and Elizabeth Halsey (BT) are not the ‘ideal’, stereotypical teachers you would expect, both representing ‘bad teachers’. Hughes (2012) proposes that majority of teachers enter the profession to help improve the lives of children. However, this motive did not seem to be apparent on Dewey’s or Halsey’s list of reasons to teach. The suggestion here is that people believe teaching to be a ‘joke
Teachers need the ability to work together effectively in order to maintain a positive learning community. With merit pay he says teachers will be more inclined to work by themselves. Clabaugh says that lack of collaboration will stifle the education community. Outside factors play a role in a students achievement in school. Factors teachers just cannot control.
Mr.Fine also made it known that if we chose to become educators that we will not be paid as must as we deserve and deal with, but the reward of teaching our students the truth will be best rewarding feeling that is possible. A final point Mr.Fine showed my classmates and I was that schools is a part of this terrible system of socialization, classism, and white supremacy. The only way we can as people can fix is our
Social responsibility plays huge role in school culture. Teachers have less faith in students that lack social responsibility. When teachers don 't believe in the student’s success, it affects the teacher ability to teach and it affects the relationship between the students and teacher. For example, a teacher wouldn 't try as hard to explain a topic in class believing that the students have no ability to succeed. Also, teachers don 't take the student’s education as serious because they believe that there is no point of wasting time to try to explain something thoroughly to a student.
In the short story "Hidden Intellectualism" by Gerald Graff, the main idea is to bring acknowledgment to the idea that educators of schools and colleges should incorporate students interest into their teaching. In other words, Graff believes schools and colleges are at fault for not taking the opportunity to use "street smarts" for good academic work (Graff,2010). If Gerald Graff is right about educators needing to incorporate "street smarts" into scholarly works, as I agree, then educators should reevaluate their teaching methods. Students are becoming negligent of gaining knowledge of social interest because it is not encouraged by instructors. Therefore, the only topics students can converse with are related to school work (Graff,2010).
They explained that bullying only thrives on the experience the teacher creates for them. If teachers put more effort into creating a zero tolerance attitude toward bullying, the difference will be noticeable. The authors report, “Specifically, Hektner and Swenson (2012) found that teachers’ responses to bullying affected the level of bullying behavior in their students, and influenced the degree to which student bystanders were willing to intervene” (2014). The authors also go into detail on how teachers feel uncertain in their role. Some teachers view bullying as a normative behavior; if that happens it can lead to more bullying because the students know their actions don’t have consequences.
Today’s academic programs are always looking for ways to improve, many schools put an honor code in order, which is supposed to ensure every student’s safety and integrity of their work. Overall, honor codes do not benefit students because they create stereotypes for academic environments, therefore they should not be put in place. Stereotypes are simply defined as an over exaggerated idea of a person or group. There are two types of stereotypes, good and bad, good stereotypes are easily established by simply being a good person and are a lot to uphold. When that student can not uphold their great identity, they turn to cheating.
In Bridget Palmer’s journal article, “name” (2015), the author discusses the cultural problems that occurs between teachers and students, particularly in the middle east, providing some examples from our daily life. Palmer worked as English and linguistics professor in American University of Sharjah, where she conducted her study that is mentioned in the article. She is a professor that live in the Middle East, and connect with Arab understudies frequently as a piece of her life; which empowers her to get a firsthand look into the lives of one of the students she is focusing in her examination and have a superior comprehension of the members that are adding to the study.
