Some students may feel as if they aren 't “smart enough”, so decide to plagiarize in order to feel more intellectual. The lack of support for these certain students can make it even worse. Other issues that contribute to this issue are students thinking it will provide a successful future. Students are having the mentality that academic dishonesty will lead them to a successful future. In the article, “Academic Dishonesty in Online Courses: Considerations For Graduate Preparatory Programs in Higher Education”, Author, Steven Tolman (qtd. in Peterson 2009) states, “A cheating culture suggests that students are tolerant of cheating, believe in the necessity of cheating to achieve success, and they perceive everyone
King has provided his opinion about education is building character. Dr. King uses his words to create an audience awareness to think for yourself isn’t the same as you may call it critical thinking. Against the common assumption that colleges should teach their students “critical reasoning,” Dr. King argues that critical thinking alone is insufficient and even dangerous. Teaching one to think critically is no small task. Most students learn by constructing knowledge based on an engaged learning process rather than by absorbing knowledge from passive sources.

In the reading, “Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids,” Grant Penrod recommends that there should be a different way to socialize amongst other individuals. This entire description explains the personal burdens that the intelligent scholars undergo.

In this short essay, Robert Coles (1995) reveals his pivotal encounter with a student whose personal story of discrimination and unwanted propositions from fellow classmates challenged his perspective on both his current teaching methods and Harvard’s educational mission. Seated in a liberal educational philosophy, he acknowledged he did little to address the importance of connecting thinking to action in his own practice. Starting the essay with a prophetic warning from Ralph Waldo Emerson, Coles (1995) foreshadows his point that although a liberal educational philosophy may nurture intellect, it does little to foster character development when the link between knowledge and action is ignored. Moreover, through the philosophy student’s observance
Teachers usually ask for students’ opinions on not only the learning experience but also on the environment they’re in. For example, things like classroom decorations, lesson plans, field trips, etc. Even though student evaluations might sound appetizing for these kind of questions, once again they’re not. As a matter of fact, further on in Rojstaczer’s book he states that it causes “constructive criticism”. As we know, constructive criticism has a positive denotation when it comes to the subject but the main reason why student evaluations should be used is not for other things not related to the learning experience, but for a teacher’s performance so that it improves the learning
There was a time not even a month ago that an incident was brought to the attention of the author in which a close friend was battling the issues of unfairness in the classroom. The student was intelligent and smart, but they felt the biased opinion of the teacher against their education. The teacher would directly call out the student at inappropriate times and criticize the disadvantages of the student, without giving them an equal opportunity. The student tried relentlessly to improve the teacher 's view about them, but their futile attempts were blatantly thrown aside and the prejudice persevered. Upon the time in which the student had the opportunity to apply for more advanced classes to promote his education, the teacher boldly stated
Gregory Michie asks, “What has changed?” One possible answer is teacher disempowerment. Jaded and discouraged by the educational system, teachers who were once beloved may become burnt-out and disinterested in teaching, no longer motivated to make a positive impact on students’ lives. This teacher powerlessness has roots in systemic issues that rob teachers of control in their own classrooms. Yet the effects of these discouraged teachers manifest most strongly in their classroom, where students can receive the brunt of their frustration or apathy.
In the equivalent situation, while the children were valued as same as garbage during the time they cannot acquire an A, the parents may show their family cultural domination-academic is important and the one cannot achieve the aim will be punished- to their children directly or indirectly and thus they may attempt to resist this disadvantaged situation by misbehavior. According to Rolf Loeber and Magda Stouthamer-Loeber, the professor and associate professor of psychology in University of Pittsburgh, they investigated that authoritative parenting is a frequent but ineffective method using by the parents, who usually impose physical punishment for disciplining. In the consequence, the children’s delinquency will escalate by becoming much more outright or
Finding a magnificent way of motivating students to engage in a classroom can channel student energy into a positive learning. Though, students may tend to get shy away from sharing their thoughts on the subject when topics are controversial or taboo. In the usual way into the debate, there are two teams that are presenting a resolution or topic that they will debate, where each team will be given a set period of time to prepare an argument. Actually, there are several formats for the debates. Also, rules will definitely vary from one competition to another.
(Not passionate about ideas and books, just want the grade. JOB) Learning how to think also influences students to find what they are passionate about, that is more then grades. Without this passion, students cannot succeed as well as they want, and be happy. This lack of passion in elite student’s starts with a ‘mutual nonaggression pact.’ is created “so students want to do as little as possible.

What is exactly fallacy of ambiguity meaning as many people questions within their mind? In the book called “Thinking Critical Thinking and Logic Skills for Everyday life” by the author Judith A.Boss, the definition of fallacy of ambiguity is an unclear arguments or phrases with various definitions and grammatical structure which it does not support the conclusion. The concept is trying to say that people who has poor communication skills and language many fallacies. For example, Professor Raiff shows a picture and ask if the students can recognize what fallacy it is; one the image is on a teacher who told one of his student, “No, I said summarize the book…”.
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
This does not only include Madera High staff, yet school staff should start to pay more attention to who they think may be in trouble because school is basically a student 's second home and spend most of their time there. This is why school teachers have a big role in this. Based on this survey students think that the staff is not really of much help when in reality they should feel that they can seek help in them because teachers have a sense of authority and if the students trusted in the staff to tell them what is going on they could do something to maybe halt or change the course of how the bully impacts the student and end the problem or even yet a little advice on the part of the staff on what would be the right thing to do never hurts. There was a situation at Madera High school
