The majority of teachers are not aware immediately when a child is homeless, but through positive communication and relationships, students will open up to teachers about their home conditions. Since homeless children experience isolation, an educator must be sure to establish positive relationships with these students from day one. The child must have feelings of trust and respect for his or her teacher. These students may already feel shameful and embarrassed about their situations, so the positive student-teacher relationships are pertinent to the child learning to trust and open up to teachers. Homeless children are bound to be more internalizing with depression and externalizing with aggression and physical harm than the average student because of the lack of stability.
This is a form of colorism, impacting a student education and wellbeing. Teachers can also contribute to colorism, there is always a student who feel the teacher have favoritism. The teacher may like Julia because she is Puerto Rican with straight hair whereas discredit Maya who is dark skin with an afro. Students are getting kicked out of school more and more based on how they look. "a study published in 2013, found that among the students sampled, African-American girls with the darkest skin tones were three times more likely to be suspended from school than African-American girls with the lightest skin tones.
Not only does ADHD affect the inhabitant but it affects those around them, such as their family, friends, or teachers/co workers. Some may think kids diagnosed with the disorder just seek to be disruptively freely, or not pay attention and be excused for it, however ADHD makes focusing harder for the youth in school, and complicates their social connections. Teachers may punish the child for disorderly conduct when in reality the child is trying to pay attention. When in a classroom setting, if a child shows any signs of complications with their condition they may be subject to bullying or be ostracized from the group. Some children report that they outgrow ADHD, but recent studies suggest that 30–60% of affected
One of which that many forget that crucially affect students is the class environment. Class environment is where students and teachers can communicate on a specific lesson so that students become more knowledgeable of that topic. Usually the two types of teaching methods that happen in class are banking and problem-posing. The banking method is where the teacher is superior to the students in such that the students do not interact with the teacher, but instead record what the teacher says. After recording the information on paper, they then memorize every information given to them by the teacher or on the board.
Despite one disadvantage of not wearing uniforms, the advantages of not having dress codes greatly outweigh the bad sides. Nevertheless, dress codes can even be uncomfortable: Resources say “School uniforms can sometimes be uncomfortable,” because of button down shirts, collared shirts, etc. Even though a student may be sweating, dress codes force them to wear pants. A large population of boys with uniforms don’t want to tuck their shirt in, yet the uniform policy makes them. Because of these horrendous policies, kids can’t even go to school without feeling normal.
Most schools would suspend both students right away. What if one student in the fight had a good home life, his parents punished him, and he never got suspended again, but maybe the other student’s parents did not care, he would just simply get some time off of school, and continue to act out. If all students were talked to about what they did wrong and punished inside of school, there may be a chance to drop the percentage of kids that get in trouble. Yes, it may not be the school’s responsibility to punish the kid, but if they do not and neither do the parents, then who will? Giving out school suspensions may give the student that needs to be punished the most, time off from school, which is what they would prefer.
Although school boards feel like it’s safer for the student to stay home, they should have in school suspension so they do their schoolwork but still get punished by not getting to go to class and see their friends. This means that they still learn new material and get punished for their actions at the same
My classmates are also territorial when new people join. Although they accept that this new person is in the class and they still include them into certain aspects of the class they do not immediately include them into the more personal activities that occur before or after class. It takes a bit of time for this to happen because first they wait to see if the new person stays in the class and then to see how this new person interacts with them. My classmates are very careful when they meet new people because they might impact the way the environment in the class is. All of my classmates understand that in class the environment is extremely controlled by the rules that are in place and by the coaches that teach the class.
Imagine you are sitting in a class, listening to your teacher introduce a new lesson to you and your classmates. You can hear his or her voice, and can see their mouth moving, but you’re having a difficult time piecing those words together in order to fully understand what is being taught. Unfortunately, many English Language Learners (ELL) tend to feel exactly this way in their classroom. There are times that they feel out of place, and that they don’t belong to be a part of their classroom and that they’re not understood, when the exact opposite is true. There is much discussion amongst teachers about ELL students and how to best educate and assist these students leading them towards academic success.
Stopping behavioral interruptions will allow more time to teach. Class management will also create a positive learning environment where students can state their own opinions without others bashing them for it. Secondly, bad teachers have bad people skills. Good communication is essential in a learning environment in order to progress as a student. A bad teacher rarely communicates or not even acknowledge other teachers, students, administrators, parents, and staff members.
They will talk about the way people feel when they are trying to listen and cannot hear, because he “calls out during class or gives unrelated or inappropriate information during class discussion when called on,” (Curran, n.d., p. 6) or how Zach and other students feel when he “teases Zach (and other students at times) by name calling” (Curran, n.d., p. 6). The teacher will discuss further if this is the way he would want to be treated. Then, the teacher will implement specific praise. “Praise can be used to build positive relationships with students and assist in creating a supportive classroom environment” (Curran, n.d., p. 7). Most of the time children who treat others the way Patrick is treating others have deeper issues going on.
In recent years there has been a greater population of students in schools around America. Though there is an increasing number of students there has been a decrease in numbers of public schools. In Chicago, New York, Detroit and many other cities across the country we have seen schools on top of schools closing down which has impacted many stakeholders most importantly staff and students (Vogt, 2013). Questions are raised on where will the staff and students go, how will the students be affected by this closure and many other important questions. There seems to be various views on school closures and if they have positive or negative effect on different stakeholders.
Teachers and teens can begin to change their school, not only for the students who live in poverty, but as a whole. Teachers can respect the student as they want to be respected, minimizing the sarcasm that controls classrooms. Students can become understanding to their peers, creating a harmony in a class atmosphere. Poverty may control the students home, but poverty has no grip on the students
