Standardized tests prepare students for the stress, pressure, and competition of the real world that is to come in their future. The exams place pressure on students to study and comprehend the material. The exams may push students to compete with their peers and to help each other grow and do better on the tests. Although standardized testing can help students grow and be more competitive they also place a stupendous amount of pressure on students, which can lead to a severe amount of anxiety. Students have to deal with the pressure of This also places the added burden of constantly trying to do better than their peers onto students (Williams).
I must prepare the students for the next grade they are entering, so I must lay the ground work. Each year, a teacher builds off of what the students learned the year before. If I do not teach the students what they need to be taught, I am not only hurting the students, but I am also making the next teacher’s job much more difficult. They will have to go back and reteach information the students should already know. This becomes very difficult as they do not have a good gage of what they students remember from previous years and what all they need to start fresh with.
The ESL teachers can sometimes come in this regular teachers to see how the person is doing with the students. If they have difficulty, they can come with better plan or even ask this students how will be the best way to help them. ESL teachers should give their knowledge to this type of students because for be ESL teachers for this ESL teachers were not easy at first. I think, they needs to go to school and learn about everything. But this program do not send the regular teachers to go to school again and have a diplomat about it, but they have an ESL teachers that train them how to become a better teachers for all type of
Teachers must create lessons for different students because all students work on a different pace. Some students might get a certain lesson better then the other and they shouldn’t have to stay working when they have already mastered it. Teacher should be able to provide all the answer... ... middle of paper ... ...hey should be taught in a different approach to make sure they are receiving the knowledge provided to their other classmates. Over the course of these 14 weeks I would have probably answered these questions differently. I didn’t know the importance of the teacher and the responsibility we hold.
My ambition of course, is to be the teacher that every student loves and respects. Furthermore, I want to be the teacher that someone will look back at one day and say, "I am part of what I am because I had her for a teacher." Idealistic, yes, but if I don't believe in myself, and my students then I am defeating my whole purpose as an educator, and that is to make a difference in the lives of my students.
Compare/Contrast Philosophy of Education At the beginning of this semester I had no knowledge what a philosophy of education was, nor did I have one for when I become an educator. After thinking long and hard about what I wanted to happen in my classroom, what goals I wanted for my students and for myself; I came up with the following. My goal as an educator is to develop a strong personal relationship with each and every one of my students. I want my students to feel like my classroom is a second home for them and for them to come to me with any problem they may be facing. I want them to have be critical thinkers and have the fire burning passion to learn just as much as I do.
When students work hard all year only to find out they do not have to exceed expectations on a test, it eventually causes them to stop trying as hard. Because of the difference in classroom learning and the STARR, students cannot correctly adjust to the different learning process that comes with taking the test. Even though state tests are supposed to follow the same curriculum as the class room, they do not and cause problems for both teachers and students. While some may argue, students need to experience new learning habits, they would not agree if it were their children stressing for weeks before and after taking the test. At the end of the day, it is up to the parents and teaches to get rid of state mandated tests seeing as students have no power against it.
For students to be able to do well on standardized test they rely on their teachers. Several teachers interviewed said they spent hours of extra planning time and hundreds of dollars to create more interesting lessons. They said they must be supremely organized and strict enforcers of classroom rules. (Watanabe). Some teachers are pressured to the point that they make education all about the test and up to the test.
Classroom management is key for every teacher to master if they want to be successful with their students. In general, the term is used by teachers to describe the process of ensuring that classroom lessons run smoothly despite disruptive behavior by students; however, after many discussions with fellow colleagues and specifically this interview, I have discovered that classroom management is more than managing and appropriately discipline children, but is also about encouraging and motivating students in the classroom. In other words, the term implies more than the prevention of disruptive behavior. It is possibly the most difficult aspect of teaching for many teachers; indeed experiencing problems in this area causes some to leave teaching altogether. In terms of daily routines, it appears that she has an organized and simple layout for each day.
Now as a teacher, I have to administer the MAP test, and it is hard to teach my students the importance of the test. I think about how our 3rd graders will be testing the rest of their academic careers. They will test every year in various subjects, SATs, high school exit exams, and then college exams. Even after college, some students will be testing to get job opportunities. Educators do not like testing, but we also know they are needed in education.
