Teachers respect students who try hard and even if they don’t succeed; students should also respect their teacher. Teaching is not going to be easy from day to day, but being an educator you still have to do what it takes to encourage the students to keep up the good work. When a student isn’t doing well in a particular subject it is your job to make sure you have covered all necessary step in order for the student to understand. Students learn differently so when you find creative ways to get the lessons across to the students it makes you feel like you have accomplished something. Respect goes a long way in education.
It has been said that people do not care how much you know until they know how much you care. I believe that has a definite application in the field of teaching. A teacher who does not show his or her students that rules and regulations are for their benefit, not to stifle or di... ... middle of paper ... ..., it is the teacher's responsibility to be a positive role model, both on and off the school grounds. Teachers should strive to model integrity, kindness, and determination. I have a passion for teaching and a desire to be, among many things, a mend, encouragement, and inspiration to my students.
I. Domain Description In today’s culture teachers are belittled and expectations for them are high. On the surface a teacher may just seem like one person doing one job, but a teacher is someone who fulfils many different roles daily. One role is the role of a friend in which teachers are encouraged to build empathetic friendships to meet a students’ needs and keep them accountable in the classroom (2.2), this means learning about their home life, hobbies, and interests. TESOL teachers must have strong moral and ethical behaviors because they celebrate the different lives lived out by each student. Students from various backgrounds and cultures will enter a TESOL teacher’s classroom and they must use diversity to their advantage by not being
Groups, such as cliques, are formed with other kids, most likely within their gender, who can all relate to each other in some aspect. According to Patricia Adler in Socialization to Gender Roles: Popularity among Elementary School Boys and Girls, she states that “segregated sexual cultures have been observed as early as preschool” (pg. 169). They observed both genders in terms of popularity and the formation of these cliques and had regular kids (meaning that they didn’t have popularity status) comment on each factor that either helped or diminished the “status” of boys and girls who are popular or more popular than them. In studying about the factors that determined what would make specifically a boy supposedly popular in a school environment as opposed to what would do that for a girl, “Eder and Hallinan (1978) compared the structure of boys’ and girls’ friendship patterns and found that girls have more exclusive and dyadic relationships than do boys, which leads to their greater social skills, emotional intimacy, and ease of self-disclosure” (Adler, pg.
Many people have different ideas on what factors that really form how boys and girls are. Some people believe that boys’ and girls’ genders are defined by social construction. Social construction of gender means boys and girls are indifferent: boys will like dolls and girls will like trucks if they are instilled that way. On the other hand, some people believe that boys and girls are naturally different since they were born: they prefer to different things like boys like truck and girls like dolls. However, the idea about social construction is untrue.
As we’ve grown up, we have been taught that there are certain things that only boys can do and certain things that only girls can do. Things like the colors that children wear, the toys they play with and even the clothes they wear are stereotyped. Gender stereotypes affect both men and women, some in similar ways and some in very different ways. Many people don’t know what a gender stereotype is, how what we say about gender in Western culture differs from what is actually true, the stereotypes that are actually scientifically proven to be factual, or how some Native American tribes accepted tribal members differing from their biological gender. Behavior that is defined as masculine, things like physical strength, control over emotions and being a good provider, differs quite a bit from behavior that is defined as feminine, like dependency, expression of emotions, and nurturing and maternal instincts (Kazdin 430).
Power discusses how kids are constantly bombarded with different tv shows, toy commercials, and programs that depict only gender stereotypical examples (2). Blackstone further explains that children perceive these “messages as “real life” which shapes their reality, behavior, and expectations of their gender role” (2). The social construction of gender does not just happen once, nor does it stop with children. West and Zimmerman discuss how the pop culture stretches to books and magazines that portray stereotypical relationships between men and women (135). When people grow up seeing and having these gender roles shoved in their faces they begin to follow them and tend to judge people who do not.
Gender bias exists in all parts of a person’s life, but is very noticeable with a walk down the toy aisle at a local store. From Barbie to Tonka trucks, there is a clear difference in the way toys are created and marketed towards different genders. Why must girl toys be pink and frilly while boys get to play with weapons and build towers out of small plastic blocks? Is there a reason behind the steering of the genders into specific roles or is it mere coincidence? This paper examines some of the research into and the reasoning behind the gender bias in children’s toys.
As a result, this points out how strongly children are affected when they gradually imitate behaviors that the media is promoting. Throughout childhood, advertisements have the ability to target young minds, leaving children accustomed to damaging behaviors. Specifically, ad’s that promote toys obviously target the younger audience in ways that seem gender appropriate. According to the theory about social learning, not only can they learn through direct experience but also can experience by observation of same-sex models which is caused by television exposure. Authors of The Effects of Commercials on Children’s Perceptions of Gender Appropriate Toy Use claim “girls would be more influenced than boys by the commercials” and how “traditional commercials contained images of women as housewives, mothers, and sex objects, or women performing domestic activities, such as sewing” (Pike & Jennings 2005).
One good quality a teacher should have is, respect for the students. Each person’s ideas and opinions should be valued and not judged. They should be able to express themselves without feeling insecure. Another good quality is, having high expectations for your students. Each student should be encouraged to do their best and achieve goals that they may have never met before.
