Teachers have the ability to change lives. They will influence the students and they need to lead by example. If a teacher treats specific cultures differently than others, students will do that. But, if teachers promote diversity and inclusion, students will follow. Students living in poverty should not be targeted, bullied, or feel unsafe to come to school.
Teachers need to facilitate the learning process so that the children do not become bored. If your presentation is boring, how do you expect the students to react? Individuality comes from our cultural and ethnic, as well as religious backgrounds. Cultural hurdles can either influence or hinder educational process. For example, some social labels that carry into the classroom could hinder the student to achieve if they are continued to be labeled.
Argument for SAER When a student performs below standard, academically, beginning teachers often try to place blame on behavioural misconduct, rather than assessing the student’s overall performance and identifying any potential behaviours that could be deemed ‘at-risk’. By implementing appropriate educational programs (such as IEP’s, IBP’s and RMP’s), reviewing, monitoring and evaluating consistently, students who are at-risk will be able to reach measurable goals. By building a support network for the student and catering for the student’s specific needs teachers will be able to extend students both academically and socially. When students improve academically, isolation will diminish, thus creating less anxiety and emotional stress. Social improvement will enable students to work collaboratively and contribute openly in classroom activities.
Teachers must also consider the age group of their students and development level. In doing so, they are more likely to have their students critically think about their own actions and work within the rules, rather than against them. Discipline Models Canter’s Assertive Discipline model has many proponents and opponents. While it may be a suitable program for students of all ages, many who disagree with its premise feel that it does not provide a solution to discipline problems. They believe that students spend more time thinking about the consequences of their actions instead of trying to think critically about how to improve their behavior.
Some studies report that self-advocacy instruction should begin at the earlier levels while others do not pinpoint an age. Overall, research suggests that instructing middle school students on self-advocacy is extremely beneficial to their success. Another area that needs to be researched is involvement that teachers should have in this process. Although high value is placed on the importance of these skills and strategies in the classroom, teachers need to be more prepared to teach self-advocacy and help students with the IEP process (Mason et al., 2004). Teachers should receive more training in order to help students learn and express these skills.
The teacher it is the second most important because she/he will be responsible to accommodate every student needs, goals and educate them to succeed in their lives. Students should know why education it is important in their future, if they already know they would be able to keep their education until they have achieved their goals. It is important for the students to have the desire of going school, this will help them to learn and enjoy the school. They w... ... middle of paper ... ...that self-esteem has to start at home, and teachers have to make sure that every child has high self-esteem. A child that has high self-esteem will contribute more in the classroom than a child who doesn’t have self-esteem.
I think school district need to do a better job at training school leaders get the proper training and use teacher evaluations to benefit both the teachers and students. Teacher evaluations are very important. Most of the time, they have a negative feeling attached to them. Some teachers view evaluations as a way of them getting written up for what they are not doing and not as a way of growing and improving to help them teach their students. This also depends on how the principals frame and do teacher evaluations.
Collaboration between a general education teacher and a special education teacher is important to a student 's academic success inside the classroom. Students who require special services need general education teachers and special education teachers to be in sync on all matters education. This coordination by both teachers will give each student the best possible chance at a quality learning experience. Accomplish collaboration can be difficult because of varying reasons. Findings by Eccleston (2010) suggests that successful collaboration combines four traits.
The main argument put forth in this article is that Nolen believes that “we need to better understand the connections between teachers’ assessment practices and students’ motivation and engagement in terms of the social systems in which they exist.” (Nolen, 320). She goes on to discuss the significance of formative assessments providing feedback and how this feedback can be used to measure the gap between current and desired performance. This article took into account the “balance of multiple purposes for assessing and providing feedback”. (Nolen, 321). Nolen goes on to state how teachers provide useful information to students in regards to self-assessment but are often just as concerned with student’s emotional issues such as motivation to learn.

Lopez ENG132 12/11/2013 Differentiating Instruction • Introduction One issue facing the quality of education in today`s schooling is Differentiating Instruction, which is simply to change ones teaching methods to help cater to each individual student’s needs. Teachers can differentiate through content, process, product, and learning environment based on the individuals. Differentiation comes from idea about differences among students, how students learn, learning preferences and individual interests. In order to understand how students learn and what they know, pre-assessment and ongoing assessments are necessary. In the past instruction was delivered in a one size fits all method.
