Therefore, talking does not only affect the one who was talking but also everyone else in the class. When someone starts talking they don't understand what they are doing to themselves. They are actually making it harder for themselves to learn. Students that talk usually get points off and disciplinary action, such as writing an essay. This extra work puts the student further behind in all their classes and takes
Through my management eyes, I have seen obvious flaws in the educational sector which has birthed some great strategies that I believe with my sense of leadership coupled with my effective communication skills and perfection of my areas of growth will allow me to make a difference in organizational settings. I have valuable strengths. One of my strengths lies in the ability to solve problems and come up with effective strategies. I can observe a situation and discover the root causes that will then help me to determine a map for success for that particular problem. For instance, in the school where I work, I noticed that students were poor note-takers so I brought this to the attention of the administrators, and after observation I trained teachers and we implemented the Cornell Note Taking System, school wide.
I believe that a healthy teacher student relationship relies on respect , guidance and authority. The quantity of each component is held in a fine balance. If a teacher puts too much pressure on authority this gives the students the impression that the classroom Is a dictatorship which will result in loss of both respect and the guidance role a teacher has which will result in a negative classroom climate . In the first weeks of teaching through questioning students to assess their learning I found the same students were raising their hands each day I found this was unfair to the rest of the class so I then introduced what is known as the “name generator” this generator then chooses students at random to answer questions I found this a success . When using the name generator in one class there was a student who, rarely contributed to the group then one day her name was chosen on the name generator this student then took me by surprise and answered the question correctly by using the name generator it has allowed me to get a better understanding of each students capabilities without favouring one student over
Many people say to combine classes to cut teachers, but then your leading to overcrowded classes, and the students won’t have the one on one that some need to have an education that is successful. Education in America is needed for the future. This generation of students is the next generation for leading the country. Begging the government repeatedly for money isn’t the answer to help the education system problem. The government has its own problem to deal with, and that is to get this country out of debt.
Being an advocate and creating In-Sync environments for children with sensory issues is very important to me because I have been through the difficulties of helping teachers understand, not judge and work with my daughter that has sensory processing disorder. My advocacy activity is creating in-sync environments in the home and in school for children with sensory issues. It is bringing awareness to teachers and parents that do not realize the effect that it can have on their child and learning or even just coping in the world. A child with sensory issues views the classroom in a very different way as other children. We process the sensory integration information in our world simultaneously.
They also believe that school and the workplace have mainly similarities and so run them similarly, this is by using things like hierarchy, labelling and lack of responsibility. These things can be identified within both the working and school environments. The schools seem to be set up now to prepare kids for this style of work for when they get older. Although this does not count for people who seem to be able to climb the workplace ladder as you can seehis in both schools and work, also if the school was trying to teach kids obedience and how to be docile through the hidden curriculum then why would they teach subjects like philosophy and sociology that teaches you to question a lot and exposes the manipulation that occurs. Louis Althusser believes that there is a ideological state apparatus which reproduces the class inequalities and makes you believe that it is normal and just, this means that generation after generation the education system is failing their working class pupils.
They reinforce and instill a certain right and wrong into us. When we do something wrong, some kind of punishment will be given to us and this usually trains us to distinguish the basis of right and wrong. Teachers also are a big influence in our adolescent lives, an example to this would be when the teacher gives us a failing grade when homework is not completed on time and when you did not study for an exam. Eventually, we continue to learn in such a way throughout our lives, by having examples to learn from and larger authorities enforcing a right and wrong. In the long run, through these external sources, we start discovering what society and what media considers as right or wrong.
A third reason I should not talk in class without first being given permission is that most people find it hard to concentrate on their schoolwork when others around them are talking. There are times to listen and think and work quietly. It is at these times that I should not talk without being given permission first. Additionally, by paying attention to, and doing, my schoolwork instead of talking without permission, I will probably get better grades. When I talk in class, I bother everyone around me.
Rose’s example is further supported with the suggestion that certain children are being selected according to social class to achieve, by author John Taylor Gatto’s essay, “Against School.” Gatto was a teacher for thirty years in Manhattan; he suggests the general purpose of education is to control the population, a more cynical theory for the reasons our modern day schools exist. Further, teachers need to consider the curriculum in the schools our children attend; some curriculums can lead to boredom. Gatto provides arguments that teachers and children are uninterested and therefore unable to succeed in school. Similarly, author Jean Anyon provides a study describing how resources correlate with a school’s socioeconomic class in her essay, ”From Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work.” Schools don’t actually perform the function mainstream America expects them to. Every child learns
According to Thomas Sergiovanni "In democratic communities norms count more than rules"(1994, p.120). This made me think about what norms are and how teachers can implement norms and not rules. Kids do not want to follow rules but if they are doing something everyday and are expected to do something everyday then they start to feel a belonging to the class. "When students share the responsibility for developing norms and when their commitment to these norms is expected, they know they belong" (Sergiovanni, 1994, p. 121). Sergiovanni explains in his article ways that educators can get control of their classroom.
