Chapter six states that students with disabilities have a tougher time finishing their education rather than non-disability students. Another problem encountered in the classrooms is the teacher not letting the students have a voice especially when you expect them to follow the rules and daily routine. That type of teaching is called sham inquiry which does not educate the kids but just to keep them busy. Besides the sham inquiry there are different reasons for including students in regular classrooms one it’s expensive to have separate classroom and changes the instruction. People think that special education is very unique and only qualified individuals should teach those students but that’s not true.
Education produces stronger citizens, who are willing to work and provide tax dollars. As a teacher, I hope to help my students learn more about the world around them, and to help them recognize their own potential. I hope my students learn, grow, and develop both academically and socially. As a teacher, I will behave ethically by obeying moral standards of right and wrong. In my classroom, my students will learn many social skills.
Troubled schools cannot improve if schools in the "nicer" neighborhoods always get a disproportionate share of the respected and experienced teachers. Superintendents also know that pressing for fundamental changes in public schools might cost them their jobs. One administrator stated that "you can start something that might make a difference but you would never survive long enough to see it work out." Another said that superintendents "are constantly choosing between initiatives that might work but would get you fired and initiatives that are too weak to do much but might survive long enough to make a little bit of difference." Doing what is needed would require reallocating money and personnel and looking outside the system for new ideas and people.
Some of them find themselves as criminals or useless people so they did not feel their role to improve their countries and most of them do not take their responsibilities toward their children, which make the children consider as negative citizens. It is noticeable that the system of education is changing from time to time based on financial issues and how the world is growing. In the past, individuals taught the education system from the oldest member of the family to children, and their members were charging fees from the families that sent their children to them. Which meant that education was an important thing in all ages. Nowadays, the education is shaped to an official system run by professional people in governments and many countries invest high amounts towards education which makes evidence of how important it is in our current life.
I do not think being in Mrs. Sachs 's class was the best fit for him because she did not try to fit his needs. Mrs. Sachs is an incredibly strict teacher that does not tolerate students that are not at the standard curriculum. That would be hard enough for any student, but when a student is having trouble in school, that strict environment becomes more difficult. I think Andy would have shown more progress, if he had a different third grade teacher. Since being in the resource room, Andy has improved in various aspects.
Another reason I decided to enter the profession is due to the subject I will be teaching, social studies. The core subjects in social studies, history, psychology, and civics, are often taught improperly or not taught at all, by which I mean the teacher serves as more of a baby-sitter than a teacher. Teachers in the subjects who do bother to teach it often do it in a strictly lecture style with little if any classroom participation. In history this is understandable, although there can be some participation. In my opinion, the reason for the lack of knowledge in civics and psychology can be explained by the fact that students are only supposed to digest the information rather than participate in a mock government in civics or open discussions in psychology.
When employers do not take the critical time to hire the most unparalleled teachers, it seems as if teachers do not set high in importance. There are still many mediocre teachers hired around the world, which almost wastes the time of students. As Gladwell invoked, teachers may have the basic skills to be proficient teachers; however, only some fit the smallest, most essential skills. It seems employers do not hire teachers wisely, and it’s just luck that a perceived excellent teacher proves to be just that. For example, Gladwell interpreted a high school math teacher as being a superstar in the classroom.
Some stress triggers for me include uncertainty, constant changes, lack of control, and working with people who are not organized. I cannot handle constant changes to the way something is done. It causes me to feel uncertain and unsure of what I am supposed to do because I always want to do everything perfectly. If I cannot have some control over the system I feel very vulnerable because I do not trust most people with very important responsibilities, such as work projects. If I am forced to work in a team I get stressed out if anyone is unorganized.
In an earlier era, the nation’s professional educators believed that too much school would mentally and physically exhaust students and teachers. But in today’s middle class families it can be very inconvenient. With both mom and dad working it’s harder to give kids the attention they need. Wi... ... middle of paper ... ... still a wonderful time for many families and communities. Legislators need not pursue one-size-fits-all solutions to "fix" the school calendar.
Since some of them have inadequate accumulation about the science’s topics, teachers do not prefer to explain these topics much. For instance, according to a research, teachers account for the lesson of Plants and Animals’ comfortably, while ‘Electrocity’ is difficult for them because it is a complex topic (Pine& Messen& John, 2001). Other notion is that teachers do not know what kind of misconceptions teenagers may have (Thompson& Logue, 2006). If they do not pay attention to recognize their misunderstandings, it is like that a flimsy flat is built. Besides teachers, the school has a role in occuring of misconceptions.
