Students are often expected to sit quietly and adsorb the information the teacher is providing, despite if there is no interest in the topic or how the teacher is presenting it to the class. Because of this, students create a lack of interest in what they are learning and merely memorize what is required of them to achieve desirable grades. This practice is detrimental to students because they are not actually retaining any of the information being presented to them. Simple memorization of material is an ongoing problem with adult learners, with vital deep level learning failing to take place, creating apathy to be rampant in adult learning. With many students finding a lack of interest in their education, teachers and educators must a... ... middle of paper ... .... 20 October, 2012.
On top of that there is constant miscommunication between the principal and vice principal as to how you should teach your students. As a teacher you get so caught up in trying to do what they recommend that the students come second which than creates a passive learning environment. When that happens your students will let you know which they are very judgmental especially with your overall appearance as a professional. Even being labeled a good teacher you face obstacles like any other teacher but if you the teacher were to teach in a new and exciting environment you will have different results
Aldrich also believes that students do not write enough. Writing is like any other skill, and takes practice to get better. Aldrich thinks teachers are not making students write more because, “they cannot write either, nor do they know how to teach other’s to do so” (184). This all leads to a very toxic cycle where a teacher who can not write teaches a student how to “write”, and that student becomes a teacher and teaches more students how to “write”, ultimately leading
It is important that education is properly enforced and easily accessed by all people. Poor teaching is implemented in the classroom today, such as boring lectures consisting of taking notes and regurgitating information. Because of this, people lack the motivation necessary to take advantage of their academic opportunities. In his essay “I Just Wanna Be Average,” Mike Rose writes about how during the majority of his academic career “[he] did what [he] had to do to get by, and [he] did it with half a mind” (154). Not only had Mike Rose done this, but other students follow in the same footsteps as if they are blind to how valuable education is and how it can empower a person.
It’s difficult to control yourself in the classroom if I were the teacher to be honest I will use punishment to the students but when I observed the class I learned how to be calm during the students are making misbehavior and overcome with this problem. Teaching is not an easy job because you have to arrange your time according to your topic but it’s impossible because students are always making misbehavior towards their teacher. I feel that I gained some strategies to be calm to the students’ misbehavior towards to the students and I learned how to make students more active in the classroom. And as a teacher we should arrange our time according to our topic and solve the problems as soon as possible so that we cannot lose time while solving the behavior problems and I try to engage with the topics and guess the students’ level and how to make my English level according to the students’ level. I learned how I should give the instructions to the students and how to manage the classroom.
They are also prone to make careless mistakes in their schoolwork. Another symptom of inattention is the high susceptibility to boredom and distraction (2008).

Teachers’ beliefs and their work contexts are the two key factors influencing how teachers make decisions. Teachers’ work contexts also consist of social pressures on teachers’ decisions, for example, through IEP teams, and interactions with parents and colleagues.
The students do not understand the values of education as Wayman passionately teaches, and do not realize the wonders of life as the narrator in the story tries to deliver. Moreover, Wayman’s flaw of leniency and the narrator’s lack of communication skills further widens the gap between the teachers and students. However, Wayman is able to identify his students’ misunderstanding, and be unaffected by their indifference, while the narrator blames herself for her students’ apathy toward the subject and completely get discouraged from teaching. From these points above, Wayman in “Students” is more effective as a teacher than the narrator in “Crow Lake.”
Joe wants to do well, but has been conditioned to have a fearful reaction after spelling tests are announced, due to errors made in the past. Mary does not care about the reward system (i.e., points), demonstrating that children learn in different ways. It’s important for teachers to provide opportunities for children to work with their preferred learning style. The second concept raised is the need for teachers to have a deep understanding and awareness of these learning styles, further taking this into account when planning and teaching. This concept is highlighted by the teacher’s recognition of inconsistent results within the class.

Plagiarism has made a bothersome nest in classrooms nationwide, yet Jaschik’s article provides English professors everywhere a solution to this problem. Through his solution this nest may be removed or at least substantially decreased in size. With the absence of this problem, English professors will be allowed to return back to the true functions of a classroom, which is to teach. Instead of students constantly worrying about punishment, they will be able to learn and know they are writing plagiarism-free paper.
The teachers in a classroom cannot teach what they would like to teach, but rather they are forced to teach what will be on the test. Often, when teachers teach what will be on the test, many students will begin to zone out and do other things, rather than listen to the teacher drill them with memorization for the tests (Willis 59) Teachers are graded based on how well their students do on these standardized tests, so they will teach only what is going to be on the test, to keep their jobs, or even get raises. Whenever this happens, students are hurt because they lose out on many opportunities to learn, and they even lose critical thinking skills. The testing curriculum often also places too many goals for students and teachers to reach, which will force them to move more quickly and not properly address every topic (Popham 71). Which, in the long run with further encourage only teaching the test, and nothing else.
