Even though I am not a doctor, my younger cousin is autistic and shows the same signs as this student. The teacher informed me that he was not doing well in class because he did not understand anything she was teaching. I asked the teacher why he was not in a special needs classroom and she explained to me how the student’s parents would not acknowledge the situation at home or in the classroom. The climate of this specific classroom is not suited for a child with special needs, if the child were in a special needs classroom, his learning would not be stifled but encouraged. An additional example as to what school climate is, is stated in “School Climate: Measuring, Improving and Sustaining Healthy learning environments,” by H. Jerome Freiberg, “School climate
The plus and the minus points of Home schooling Choosing the best school for the children is one of the most difficult tasks for the parents. To give a good and well mannered child to the society is depend upon the school he or she attends. Even though the home is the first place of a child which can learn the life, the school education helps to bring out a child an educated one with practical skills and variety of experiences in life. However, because of the present school society is corrupted, most of the parents are in a stressed mode. So as an answer, a new fact is coming forward through the parents and the education called Home Schooling.
. What we have now across the country is confusing, hard to navigate and, I believe, abusive of both teacher and student time.” this shows how standardized test are a waste of time for the students and the teachers since instead of the teachers be giving lessons, they have to take the little bit of time they have for their class to be giving test to students. Another example is “When you teach to a test or even prep for a test, educators are taken away from some of the good work they could be doing helping students learn”. Teachers take a lot of their time training kids for tests and to make sure they get the information they need in order to pass the tests given by the
The cost of Common Core is also costly to the school districts. Most teachers do not support Common Core either. I believe there needs to be some modifications made for student with special needs. Common Core is tailored to a student that learns at a normal rate. The creators did not take into consideration students with mental and physical
Cheating during examination is not the new phenomena in education field and usually happen at school and university. In the era of technology, there are so many tricks that student use to cheating during the examination. So this situation make the teacher felt hard to detect the student that cheating in examination. For example, some student in secondary school copy the examination answer from his or her friend. Bryce Buchman(2014) found approximately 75 percent of university student confess suggesting that probably even more than three quarters of university students have done something against the policy of examination to improve their grades.
Many ESL/EFL teachers struggle with teaching pronunciation. The textbook may have pronunciation exercises or the syllabus may require them. However, few teachers have any real idea how to convey this important information besides using the standard practice of listening and repeating sounds and words in isolation, whether the students are successful or not. Teachers are sometimes unequipped to deal with difficulties, besides asking for even more repetition. Students are disheartened because, no matter how hard they might try, they just cannot hear and produce the correct sound.
The children can often be segregated in the classroom and often ignored in the classroom. The other children may not understand the travelling culture and many will not be able to relate to living on a halting site with no running water or electricity. This makes getting an education even tougher for traveller children as they do not have the facilities to study at home. To solve the problem of discrimination against traveller’s teachers could plan a lesson on the history of the travelling culture. The children of the community could be involved in the project where they present what life is like in their community.
It is obvious that the teacher role demands a transition from being a student to being a professional teacher with the responsibility of leading and guiding students to gain knowledge as well as to develop their personalities for being good citizens, it is the transition from being a student’s of teachers to teachers of students. Thus this transition from a graduated learner to a teacher in real classroom has been characterized as a type of reality shock, in which novice teachers realize that what they were having at university and what they are facing during their first year of teaching is totally different “students’ achievements tends to be significantly worse in the classroom of first year teacher before rising in teachers’ second and third year” (Rivkin, Hanusheck & kain,
Through the demonstration of problem solving strategies, students’ higher-order thinking could be discovered. According to (Adi Badiozaman, 2006), teachers are far from ready to implement the school-based assessment into the education system. They do not fully realize the concept of school-based assessment and lack the know how in developing the assessment tasks. The major weakness with performance assessment is very time consuming for students and teachers. This means that fewer assessments can be gathered so if they are not carefully devised fewer learning goals will be assessed at which can reduce content validity.
