This paper will attempt to explore the facts and professional opinions about the integration or segregation of public schools by ability level, and prove that more individual teaching will lead to improved learning. Inclusion is often talked about in the realm of special education and learning disabilities. Inclusion can be successful in these situations, sometimes, but more recently policy makers are putting gifted students into the discussion of inclusion. The same way the regular education students can help the special education students, it is believed that the gifted students can help the regular education students learn, and this will help them master the content as well. I believe this would be detrimental to the education of the “gifted” students.
Following these suggested practices will make teaching content easier. As a teacher, I will have to keep this in mind for all my students. Fostering an environment that cultivates and promotes the pluralistic society that we live in will be beneficial. It can help to combat the deficit approaches in education that stifle or suppress minority culture and language while promoting acceptance of a multicultural and equitable society. I hope to be able to work towards this type of classroom.
If we can adjust the school’s setting to be more individualized for students we can help meet their individual needs. This strategy will help foster relationships between students and teachers so they can gain a lasting relationship. This strategy would use more one on one instruction to help learn more about how the student learns and gain relationships by spending more time individually.

This could help improve the nation’s educational system if conducted properly. It would also help the students and the teachers to sort out their true priorities in the classroom.

It was a very toxic community to grow up in. This affected the youth in the community by not projecting their potential into their minds. To have a well-educated populace, we need to make sure we graduate well-rounded youth after grade school. I believe this can be achieved by following common-core guidelines, while also striking their creativity within the subjects so that they are retaining information, not only memorizing it. I will discuss my beliefs on the roles of the teacher, the children as learners, the curriculum, and the purpose of schools in society.
I have experienced both sides of this argument in my school experience and feel as though it could be both helpful and hindering. Technology in classrooms can be a distraction and a tool for plagiarism and cheating. On the other side, it can also improve learning by increasing productivity and performance, lowering school costs, and prepare students for life after school. Technology is something that will always be in our lives and because of this; professors need to implement it into classes. However, schools must do this correctly or it can have devastating effects on students.
I have realized that I have the power as an educator to promote good Student-Student relationships. I may not be able to make students become friends but I can at least help them get along. I can help them by being there if I see any issues with students and teaching them how to work through them. Also, having them work with different people and doing games such as ice breakers can form good Student-Student relationships. A Staff-Staff relationship is important as well.

Second, tutor needs help students gain skills to work in groups and some activities could help students increases sense of cooperation. Third, teacher needs help students manage some conflicts among students (Burke 2011:91). However, although working in groups might improve students` understanding and knowledge, it still not ensures these knowledges will be correct. So, information influence is quite important
While some of the assessments mentioned could be common assessments chosen by the school or district to gain insight into the effectiveness of instruction, the inclusion of authentic assessments is most beneficial to students and demonstrates learning in a context closer to that of a work environment (Rovai, 2004). Unfortunately, this particular course, according to this syllabus, relies heavily on quizzes and traditional tests and essays to form the bulk of assessment opportunities. While other activities, such as formative assessments, journaling and discussions are mentioned as possible avenues for scoring, they are given a very low percentage of the overall grade. This shows that they are not valued for their ability to show progression and mastery. If this is indeed the case, this puts the students as a
Before I took the course I thought I already had the general idea about teaching and this course was just going to go into more details about it, but I was shocked to find out that there were a lot of areas to learn and to cover. This course was a great help for me and has eased the way to my professional development. What I have learnt could be summarized in the following: The core components: The core components were very important reference during the teaching practice and observations, it was and will be like a textbook for me. Whenever I had any doubts about classroom managements, materials, presenting a target language or writing concept questions; the core components was always the first thing to use for help. I leant how to make a lesson plan with clear instructions, well-graded language and student centered.
