One important aspect to make students’ learning valuable is to focus the planning in setting objectives in terms of desired outcomes (knowledge skills, attitudes, values) that we want our students to develop. By developing clear objectives, students feel that there is a reason for learning. Also, it is important to provide feedback, because it helps students improve their goals’ achievement and solidify their understanding. Teachers need to communicate objectives, in this way students will be able to know what they are doing in class and what they are supposed to learn. Some recommendations for setting objectives in the classroom are: Set learning objectives that are specific but not restrictive: it is important to know the specific standards, benchmarks and supporting learning that students at school are required to learn.
Communication between teacher and students about the classroom management procedures for these two things are important so that students are informed and are able to take the initiative to gather what they have missed which can help avoid them falling behind. If tardies and absences are frequent, a teacher may begin to be concerned and question what could be the possible reasons behind it, whether that be an outside force in a student’s life or something that may be happening in the teacher’s own classroom. Establishing a relationship and reflecting upon oneself as a teacher to why the class might be having
Lack of recognition and a failure to acknowledge the talents and skills of students with such abilities early in their education can easily lead to negative consequences later in life. Gifted and talented students become depressed and frustrated. (This section is unwritten, but will contain the following aspects: - solutions to the problem with an emphasis on one specific solution - how the solution can be implemented to solve the problem) Part II: History of Gifted and Talented Problem Foremost, a topic of great controversy in the world of gifted and talented education is the very definition of the term “gifted and talented”. Some educators define it by demonstrated precociousness while others cite well-known intelligence tests like the Stanford-Binet as in... ... middle of paper ... ...ith depression.

Difficulties with learning and impaired school performance are just some of the implications that result from child abuse. Multiple researches shows that child who is a victim of maltreatment of any kind, scores lower on tests that measures the cognitive abilities and display lower school achievement when compared with peers from normally functioning families. This differentiation can be caused by the altered relationship between abused child and caregiver. In families where abuse is absent, and caring relationships are formed, child can develop a sense of worth and confidence needed to perform successfully in a cognition task presented. On other hand, child who is maltreated is often overwhelmed with the negative emotions and is lacking any motivation to succeed at school.
We certainly do need methods to assess a student’s academic achievement; the grading system, however, fails to measure students’ work accurately and instead becomes the sole focus of learning. Students often believe that the grades they receive reflect what they have learned, but as shown this is not always the case.

Many studies have been conducted in order to improve our education. Many have learned that because the ease of information to world wide traumatic events and individual events, trauma is the culprit and is holding back our students causing them to suffer academically and decrease the IQ of our students. While issues of intervention in classrooms and trauma may seem unwanted, Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and much of the critical theory related suggests a deeper link, it shows us that intervention is needed in the classroom setting. The article “The Effects of Trauma Types, Cumulative Trauma, and PTSD on IQ in Two Highly Traumatized Adolescent Groups” describes the correlation between traumatic type, PTSD and IQ. The hypothesis of this study was that the different trauma types have different influences.
Traits that are often attributed to children who exhibit these traits are hyperactivity, inattentiveness and disruptive. Teachers are twice as likely to overlook them, ask them fewer questions and be low in positive responsiveness (Webster-Stratton & Herbert, 1994; Shonkoff and Phillips, 2000). Children with behavioral challenges face far greater difficulties with social and emotional development. Other children will tease and ridicule them, or reject them entirely. These experiences bruise a child’s self-esteem and confidence, they are left feeling depressed and isolated.
There is a difficulty, therefore, in getting students to become motivated. How do you propose to motivate a group of students who feel that they cannot jeopardize their social status for doing well in school? Other reasons for academic failure range from student feelings of incompetence in learning the materials, to boring class subjects and busy work. To adequately solve the problem of academic failure, researchers are looking for ways to build a connection between identifying these students and reinforcing motivation in them. Causes and Effects of Adolescent Academic Failure: Lack of Motivation This category encompasses discussion of drug use, peer pressure, inadequate study and time management skills as well as adolescence itself, as they pertain to the causes and effects of each of these issues.
While the minority is placed in the lower tracked class, they are given the lower quality education that they do not deserve (Enns 2015). Nevertheless, according to Paton (2012), the mixed approach was thought to have a its disadvantage because it might put high-ability children at a disadvantage. Parents were scared that the lower-ability children would hold their high-ability children back academically (Paton 2012). Having said that, the parents are wrong, as it is not another child’s fault in why their children are not pushed to their full potential. It is the teacher’s responsibility to provide more challenging lessons for the more intelligent children.
Additionally they found that children that have lower academic success would become discourage and believe that their effortful engagement is without reward. The relevant impact and link to my argumentation is the ability to state that minority status is not cause for academic failure but rather effortful engagement on the part of the teacher in forming the relationship with his students. Ultimately, this is an exhaustive study, grounded in dense statistical analysis, while being recent and surprising i
