William Johnson begins discussing how teaching special ed. students are a huge task already without adding all the new requirements from the school. The school system is constantly changing and dealing with new problems which than affects the teachers job. You become labeled a bad teacher all because you cannot handle the added problems in your classroom. On top of that there is constant miscommunication between the principal and vice principal as to how you should teach your students.
In the education workforce, special education teachers have a variety of different jobs depending on the types of students they work with because some students may require more than just an education. They need support in how to behave in class and how to function out in the “real world”, so to speak. Many special education teachers face unique problems and stresses with their jobs. Some of these may be violent outbursts from students, the student who don’t learn at a normal pace, and social awkwardness from students, which can make some group projects more challenging. To become a special education teacher, you first need to have a passion for helping others as well as meet several requirements.
Such is because various challenges emerge when beginner teachers are caught off guard. As they begin teaching, the reality tends to differ from what the beginner teachers expected. Various hidden demands and subtleties that are quite unexpected arise (Yunus, 1998). According to Eisenman, Edwards, & Cushman (2015), classroom management is the most popular concern that faces beginner teachers, with disruptive students and weak classroom management skills placing considerable barriers to becoming a good teacher. The result has been the placement of blame on failure of teacher preparation program in adequately preparing the teachers for classroom management (Eisenman, Edwards, & Cushman,
It also very difficult to fit career based classes into the normal school day schedule. Participating in internships and longer classes creates a schedule with holes, and has become one of the bigger obstacles (Kauchak and Eggen. Pg.199). Another set back that can be found in both schools is quality and quantity. For these schools to work the way they were created to, the teachers must be skilled in their profession enough to thoroughly teach it.
As a result, it affected student understanding and learning which left many students unable to fully grasp some of the concepts. This is obviously an ineffective way of teaching. Mohanna, Chambers and Wall (2008) tell us that a good teacher is adaptable and reacts to lessons on the spot. Unfortunately my assumption prevented me from doing this as I was always trying to cover the material that I had for the class. This is an assumption which I definitely got thr... ... middle of paper ... ... of a teacher that you realise how difficult it is to be an effective communicator.
It is not necessarily good or bad; however, reactions to stress can be harmful. Lack of time puts the stress on many students, and causes students to often procrastinate because they are constantly trying to meet deadlines and they don’t have the time to work on their assignments. Many students feel their grades are important; they need plenty of time to work on their work so they can do good. I can relate to them because if I get a low grade I get disgusted because I put a lot of time and effort in doing that assignment. But I think that a lot of the stress from school is caused, not only by the teachers, but also from the students to do well.
This can be troublesome, with such requirements teachers do not have the time to teach the students each standard thoroughly enough for them to master it before the test. This also poses a problem for the students, as a student you are learning what your teacher feels is important and maybe not what the state educators feel. Also with different types of students there are different learning methods, backgrounds, and cultures (Popham, James). And the tests do not take into account the other factors that can hinder learning such as a bad home life which needs to be considered if "no children are to be... ... middle of paper ... ...fluences higher level thinking, creativity and strategies for solving problems (Popham, James). Instead of getting the students to regurgitate information when it is test day.
Standardized testing puts a tremendous amount of pressure on students and trains them to think a certain way to ensure good test scores. Students may begin to search look for the fast and easy answer when doing school work, this is harmful to their learning and leads to bad habits that may be hard to
Because they aren’t happy with their salaries. Is it important to solve their problem? Absolutely yes, because the whole country is relying on schools to educate children and adults. That is, if teachers are dissatisfied with their job, the quality of teaching is likely to be poor and, in turn, students will gain poor education. Now, what are the areas that can be affected by poor education at schools?
Many educators do not go into further detail with their lesson. "Most teachers and professors in colleges have a set plan, and this is what makes higher education rigid"(Ruytenbeek, 2013). This is why most students find higher education tedious and difficult to grasp. This linear learning is a significant problem in our higher education system because it does not educate every student equally. Every student learns differently, and this linear model forces students to learn a certain way that they are not accustom to.
