Her rude comments, laughing, and grading methods make me, as well as my other students, feel discouraged. No matter how much we studied, no on could ever do good in her class. Even if some teachers teach differently than others, all of them should want the student to feel confident about what they learned in the end. Mrs. Jones’s view is different in a negative way because she gets more joy out of watching students struggle than succeed. For these reasons, Mrs. Jones is the perfect example of a bad teacher whose policies and practices have detrimental effect on students’ ability and desire to learn.
Natalie A. Johnson-Leslie, the author of “Effective vs Ineffective Teachers Educating Our Children”, claimed that ineffective teachers have inadequate classroom and management skills. They cannot control their students and cannot keep their classrooms quiet. As a result, the atmosphere of the classrooms is usually too loud for the students to be willing to learn. Derrick Meador, a school administrator and the author of “Qualities of Bad Teachers”, asserted that the teachers are not motivated to teach their students. They do not put a lot of effort into their job.
Analysis is a very pitied assignment due to the feelings and attitudes students have towards them. Students merely don’t understand the point in why they are analyzing a topic they do not care for. In Graff’s essay he gives an example from a student by the name of Karen. Her attitude toward analyzing topics is incredibly poor and from the tone in the essay she wrote it is extremely noticeable that she believes writing an analysis is stupid. For example she writes, "It seems to me that we analyzed things that didn’t seem to have much to analyze….Another reason I do not like to analyze, though this may sound arrogant, is because it is not important to me(Gerald et al, p.2b, 2003)."
Instead, these kids are now very angry and resentful for being passed along. It was also noted that your environment should not be an issue because most kids do not take school seriously and the teachers should have been more forceful with the “F” word. This also causes the employers to be cheated out of what they expect from their employees. Employers are also being cheated because the teachers fail to do their job right. For example, if a student went to school to be a nurse and is passed because he or she doesn’t disrupt class and was a good student this cause them to get a diploma.
On top of that there is constant miscommunication between the principal and vice principal as to how you should teach your students. As a teacher you get so caught up in trying to do what they recommend that the students come second which than creates a passive learning environment. When that happens your students will let you know which they are very judgmental especially with your overall appearance as a professional. Even being labeled a good teacher you face obstacles like any other teacher but if you the teacher were to teach in a new and exciting environment you will have different results
No wonder how so many student finally attribute their difficulties to something inborn, organic: That part of my brain just doesn 't work"(158). Rose state that student 's in the vocational education program having already lost interest in classes they try so hard to contemplate with, instead they decide to move on and blame their inability to learn for the reason they can 't understand what the teacher is teaching them. "They open their textbook and see once again the familiar and impenetrable formulas and diagrams and terms that have stumped them for years"(157). From the beginning of their high year the student in the vocational educational program were set to fail. The school treated them as experiment by placing them into class room with inexperience teacher or not caring teacher.
If a teacher is not explaining an assignment in a way that a refugee student can understand, they simply lose interest. On the other hand, when students are unresponsive to a teacher they are considered “disrespectful” (Usman 112). Most of these classrooms struggles are due to miscommunication issues. Teachers should not assume that students are acting out. Rather, they should meet with parents and discuss how to deal with these issues (Usman 114).
In John Gatto’s essay “Against Schools” he states from experience as a school teacher that are current educational system is at fault (148). He claims that classrooms are often filled with boredom manufactured by repetitive class work and unenthusiastic teachings. Students are not actively engaged and challenged by their work and more often than not they have either already covered the concepts taught in class or they just do not understand what is being taught to them. The children contained in classrooms have come to believe that their teachers are not all that knowledgeable about the subjects that they are teaching and this advances their apathy towards education. The teachers also feel disadvantaged while fulfilling their roles as teachers because the students often bring rude and careless attitudes to class.
(346)” Many of classmates, including himself, did not care for the lessons being taught. The teachers were disinterested as much as their students in his class. Success still can be achieved even in the lowest level of teaching because it’s up to the student to do all of the assignments and be inquisitive. Without being inerter active success will be achieved
Students are often expected to sit quietly and adsorb the information the teacher is providing, despite if there is no interest in the topic or how the teacher is presenting it to the class. Because of this, students create a lack of interest in what they are learning and merely memorize what is required of them to achieve desirable grades. This practice is detrimental to students because they are not actually retaining any of the information being presented to them. Simple memorization of material is an ongoing problem with adult learners, with vital deep level learning failing to take place, creating apathy to be rampant in adult learning. With many students finding a lack of interest in their education, teachers and educators must a... ... middle of paper ... .... 20 October, 2012.
