Schools that students don’t feel safe in usually house students that aren’t interested in subjects that are being taught. They should maintain a well-educated faculty who is all passionate about what they do. If there is a lazy faculty, it will influence the students to become lazy. Schools need to produce the change that this world needs- well rounded, creative, knowledgeable individuals. An effective school in today’s society would have a strong basis on the common core, but make it so that the information is fun to learn.
As Bremner (2008) affirmed grouping children are used in schools, which can lead to disruptive behaviour and lowering self- esteem, stigmatising the low set. I agree, presume grouping children with additional needs as one, providing an opportunity for class to bully, demoralising and lacking social interaction with peers. As observed, often children with low ability are entrusted to a teaching assistant (TA) to support their educational needs. In addition, they are not provided with extra lesson plans, review or progress plan. Eventually, lack of educational attainment for a child, despite additional support has great impact on child’s moral and emotional development besides career and growth prospects.
Parents can be influential for their children, but it would be very biased because they control what the child is learning. Parents who do not allow their children to learn the same curriculum that public school attending children are learning are sheltering them, in a way; prohibiting them from learning the things that public school will teach them. “Improving students' relationships with teachers has important, positive and long-lasting implications for both students' academic and social development.” (Rimm-Kaufman). Students and teacher bonds are one of the most important bonds because if a teacher gets through to a student, then that student has a better chance of making it in the
To say school is bad for children is extremely inaccurate, many children look forward to this as their safe haven. In John Holt 's essay “school is bad for children” he argues that school prevents children from learning what they want and that it enables their curiosity making them become passive learners I found myself disagreeing with his arguments. Holt proposes ideas to reform the school system to make it more favorable for children in which i do agree with partially. School is one of the many things children need to succeed; getting students to work together more efficiently is great but taking students out of the school to learn along with removing compulsory school attendance and required curriculum is not the answer. More one on one
Violence, crimes, drugs, youth pregnancy are some of these consequences. Even though, amount of signs proves that these dangerous causes are the effects of not displaying social values, we still have people that are against to promote social values in schools. If society does not want to keep seeing these deceitful results because the lack of social values, we need to consider implementing social values in school. Teaching social values in schools will ensure in students to have a stronger self-esteem, to have self-respect and respect to others, and to be tolerance; consequently, it will prevent students in making the wrong decisions towards their
The Concepts The key concept raised in the case is that learning depends on an individual’s preferred learning style. Learning styles influence both individual motivation and experience in school (Pritchard, 2009). It is clear that Mr. Grammatack wants to cater for all of his students needs, as he is looking to improve his current approach. Joe and Mary are students who are not motivated by the approach used in the case. Joe wants to do well, but has been conditioned to have a fearful reaction after spelling tests are announced, due to errors made in the past.
Children with Dyslexia In life it is very important to have an education in order to succeed. Unfortunately, Children with Dyslexia have a harder learning. This makes learning and therefore education the child needs become challenging. Dyslexia doesn’t only affect the children but also the parents. Some parents have difficulty seeing an early sign of dyslexia in their children’s learning, and unfortunately because dyslexia requires a different learning style this lead for room for parents to make assumptions that are often errors.
Assessing the children based on selection and ranking closes out the needy students because they cannot compete with the able students and as such they end up in stigmatization. The special children therefore require different teaching methods which depend on the type of disability. Individual Education Plans (IEPs) help in identifying the student’s needs through the collaboration of the needy student, teachers, parent and specialists (Mitchell, 31). Necessity of inclusive education The inclusion of students with disabilities into normal classes leads to greater success. However, arguments are that teachers tend to spend more time with the special students hoping that the able children will work on their own.
Advantageous Actions in the Classroom Albert Einstein once said, “If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.” This quote is relevant because students should not behave well only because they are earning an award. The issue in the modern day is that students are not scared of being penalized. Children think it is amusing to get into trouble and the teacher gives children the wanted attention by making it a big deal. Rewards are causing students to be unprepared for their future lives, whether it is for high school or for college. They should not be used in the classroom because there are many depressing controversies.
Consequently, while telling a child how smart he or she is, we are sending a message to not take risks and just look the part. Afterwards, these children were given a hard task, which they performed poorly on, and they know longer liked the problems and did not want to practice them at home. Children also felt “dumb” and when given the initial task (in which they did well), they performed significantly worse. Lastly, their opinions of intelligence reflected that it was an innate capacity as though you cannot improve.
