Punishment Alan Kazdin uses strategy writing to appeal to the readers who are most likely a parent or a child getting punished. Alan Kazdin offers parents classes, and, in these classes, he speaks about punishment. Alan Kazdin uses his opinion, due to his credibility from teaching the course he states a few good points in his class. Like even if spanking a child might make the parent feel better but, in reality it may not change the behavior of the child. A child has feelings and what Alan Kazdin is showing is spanking may actually have no effect except for, psychological effect.
According to Piaget, children should want to interact and socialize at this point—however, it was very hard for me to get KS to stand still and try to talk to me, while staying on topic. KS was more interested in playing games and socializing with himself—almost as if he were still in the preoperational stage of Piaget’s cognitive theory. The child was then asked by his parents to pay attention to me and listen to what I had to say—this demonstrated that KS had learned to apply some rules that his parents had laid down for the household. I then continued onward and used some of KS’ blocks, shapes, and stickers in order to test out if he could differentiate and classify these objects in order the way I asked
Within these tests, they measures students skills and problem-solving ability. A feature on these tests is the multiple choice which is graded by machines. Therefore, it does not subject to human subjectivity or bias (“Standardized Tests” 1). These tests do not only prove to be a way to measure a student’s ability without bias, but a way to ensure teachers are meeting the standards and needs for the students. An issue surfaced when Kath M. Newman, an associate professor of English at Carnegie Mellon University, stated that she was angry at her son about a test.
If I expect both an accurate view of student abilities and a comprehensive running record, it is my duty to practice creating effective questions addressing all levels of comprehension! My final thoughts about children 's reading and learning are about the nuances between students that are so important to note as a teacher. I did a running record for two students and the differences between the students were astounding. One student read without confidence, while the other student, facing a similar situation (uncertainty of words, no previous experience with the book, no knowledge of me) read confidently. I felt obliged to assist the struggling emergent reader, while I felt that the girl, a beginning reader did not need as much assistance from
Our students don’t always learn what we want them to learn, but they always learn something. Other than the curriculum, they may learn how to get the teacher mad, or how to avoid responsibility, either way, learning takes place. (Ben Johnson, 2011). To solve these problems, and the problems that the teacher made in this video, we must be a humanistic model teacher, build better relationship with all the students, make clear rules, create an effective learning environment, and setting the emotional climate for learning. In this case, the teacher makes some mistakes: First, we can see, they take the test, that means this is not the first time the teacher teaches these students.
Some people may be arguing that homeschooling is not necessarily advantageous because the parents may send their children to tuition centre after school if they cannot fully understand the lesson taught by the teachers in school. However, it is undeniable that the way teachers taught in school and the way the tutors taught in tuition centre is different, children may either get to know the lesson better or worse, getting confuse. Therefore, we strongly agree that homeschooling brings a lot of benefits to
On one hand, it is easy to see the potential ineffectiveness of the tests: some students may not take the assessments seriously, the curriculum taught by the educator can affect the level of preparedness, etc., and therefore the argument can be made that even if critical thinking skills are measured, the data gathered from the tests may not be accurate. However, the establishment of standards and a universal approach for educating allows for a tentative guideline by which one can measure the progress of the nation’s students from year to year and find common trends. Both Advanced Placement tests and the Keystone assessments, though drastically different in format, allowed me to test my knowledge in several subjects and learn where I ranked among my peers. Whether fill-in-the-bubble or multiple choice questions commonly found on standardized tests cause students to “analyze, evaluate, interpret, or synthesize information and apply creative thought to form an argument, solve a problem, or reach a conclusion,” is ultimately debatable. Nonetheless, alternate styles of questions such as open-ended responses and short essays are seemingly favorable substitutes for those who disagree with the current format of test
Vygotsky stated that children learn a sense of self through interaction with others. Piaget said that adults provide the stimulants and environment to learn but too much interference can damage a child's natural development. However, in Vygotsky’s theory he believed that this interaction is one of the most crucial parts of development for a child. Despite the fact that Vygotsky and Piaget both created speculations of subjective improvement, their methodologies still varied. Unlike Piaget, Vygotsky believed that the development of a child couldn’t only be examined on their abilities on their own, but rather on what they achieved with help (Beaver, M., Brewster, J., & Jones, P.,
I went away without realizing the misconception I had introduced to the learners. I then returned and used my misconceptions as a starter activity, only to find some learners challenging me as to why we breathe in other gases aside from oxygen. Vygotsky’s theory shows that as a teacher, you can encourage and facilitate classroom learning for pupils to build up on abstract ideas over a period of time. This will help to identify any misconceptions along the way too. (Vygotsky 1978) By doing this M1, I have come to realize how teachers can sometimes contribute to misconceptions.
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
Often students do not know how to reach out, who to talk to or how to respond to a conflict. For this reason conflicts escalate, even though there are people who are able to train teachers and peers to handle such conflict in healthy way. The traditional school conflict resolution method, where adult decides the outcome for the student is becoming inefficient, so peer mediation provides the student with an opportunity to talk it out and resolve the conflict they. The students see the value n the program, they want to learn how to act when in conflict, beside just with anger and save valuable relationships. This peer mediation program would be effective by reducing violence and fights.
This kind of classification process to help analyzing, filtering the most important information and to make the decision process faster. When working with the families and children, I have to make sure that my own bias so that it will not be against them. One of the incidents was happened in classroom. I was overheard teachers made a comment about one of a special needs child. I was very uncomfortable but I was not sure what to say.
My schooling and upbringing have reinforced the importance of honestly and integrity. This year, in AP Research, we spent a number of classes discussing plagiarism and how to avoid it — some students, in paraphrasing the ideas of others and forgetting to cite correcting, have accidentally committed the act of plagiarism. As a result, I have learned the importance of citing correctly. I have also learnt how to clearly distinguish to readers what points were products of my own thinking, and what ideas were created and presented by others. Putting in countless citations is laborious and tedious, but ultimately worth the effort: plagiarism should be avoided at all costs.
