This would be different if the teacher was not trying to help the students and did not give good instruction, but if they did then they should not be at fault. If the student is misbehaving and not paying attention then that student may need more help or have detention to try and make up for the missed work. Also, if the student chooses not to do assignments outside of the classroom that is not the fault of the teacher.

This can be difficult sometimes especially if they are going through a hard time in their personal life.
Conclusion In the context where I am working now, it is not easy for to apply some concepts of classroom management and communication in establishing an environment of learning. The culture definitely plays a part on how students learn, behave and how they are disciplined at times. It is still a struggle to have buy-in from some parents as my procedures and strategies are in stark contrast to what they know. Divergent values from the parents, school systems and from me also presents as a constant struggle to keep the classroom conducive to learning while at the same time being respective to the culture. It is definitely a welcome challenge to find a good balance for me without compromising my professional values.
Living conditions can affect their education and achievement. School attendance becomes irregular and often leads to transfers to new schools. Failed attempts to make friends may lead the students to give up and not bother. Children often view each other as equal, no matter their economic status, but when they reach a certain age they become aware of those differences. A child of poverty may look at the way another student is dressed and feel insecure about themselves because their clothes aren’t as nice.
The size of a class does affect learning outcomes by a number of distractions a student may have, the individualized attention of the teacher to student, and the styles of learning that a teacher uses to make sure the student achieves a higher learning outcome. In every class, there are those students that do not want to listen, the ones that want all the attention to themselves or are just causing some type of disorder. Distractions come in many types and forms from talking, moving, doodling, or even throwing a piece of paper to another student. These types of distraction are what make students not want to listen to the teacher and are not able to learn to his or her best ability. When students are engaged in a conversation of their own, the rest of the students tend to listen to that specific conversation and not the subject that is being covered in the classroom.
For example, there can be a language barrier, or that they never attended school before in their previous country. It also could be that they have different social norms between them, their peers, and their teachers. An example of how a student’s culture background could impact their learning is just simply misinterpreting the student and their abilities. Students growing up from different cultural environments can be taught to not argue or compete with others. This may make the student refrain from speaking up during class or answer questions and may lead a teacher to believe that their student doesn’t know the answer or doesn’t understand the material, when in fact they do.
For the most part, students attend school because it is the law. A learning environment should have actively engaged students, who are eager to participate and show knowledge is being acquired on a daily basis. However, some students are bored and disengaged with academic struggles, due to non-active lessons. Certain life factors such as family problems, financial difficulties are all factors that distract and contribute to students disruptive behaviors. One of the most detrimental settings for a teacher in a class is classroom management.
If the school is extremely rigid and not provide freedom for the student can feel the will to expose your ideas or even discuss (with discipline and respect) someone’s ideas in class, this school will not be a place where the student liked to spend half his day. Another important point is to have well prepared teacher. The school must have trained and motivated teachers to work. They need to be people that encourage students to develop critical thinking and to make even the most boring of subjects an attractive theme to develop in the classroom. In addition, teachers need to have the sensitivity to realize when a student is going through a period of difficulties and help you overcome
Too much homework can lead to negative effects in learning. Together teachers and parents have a responsibility to make sure their students and children are staying on top of their academic responsibilities, but too much homework can have a negative effect on their desire to want to learn in the classroom. As long as there has been school, homework and the amount of it has been a controversy among teachers, parents, and students. All across America, the average school day for children ranges from the lowest number of hours being 6.24 to the highest number of hours being 7.17. Large amounts of homework assigned after that many hours in school could inadvertently turn the student away from wanting to learn, and even the ability to learn, and
It is a teacher’s responsibility to make sure that the student’s behaviour in the classroom is appropriate and well managed, but doing so can be a difficult task. There is often a divide in the classroom between those who want to learn and those who don’t seem too concerned about their education and as Churchill (2013) states “Don’t particularly want to be their”, this can have an effect on everyone (p.56). Students that lack respect towards teacher... ... middle of paper ... ...er’s should try to encourage and strengthen parents engagement in their Childs school experience, as the student is more likely to want to come to school and participate in work if they have the encouragement of their family members. Every single student has the ability to learn and reach their full potential if they have the right role models there to help them. All these aspects explain how it can be very challenging for a teacher to try and manage a classroom where every student has different learning abilities.
When children are disruptive in the classroom it can cause a lot of problems for their classmates and their teacher. Yet, in the long run, it's the disruptive child themselves who is most impacted, on both a social and educational level (Epstein, Atkins, Cullinan, Kutash, & Weaver, 2008). Behavior modification techniques should be used in school, to change the negative behaviors, and increase the positive behaviors seen in these children. Currently, the public school system has failed to have a universal discipline strategy, and many schools take a school to prison approach, to weed out the bad seeds that they are incapable of managing. Many of these students have been victims of po... ... middle of paper ... ...008).
