A person spends between 12-16 years of life in an academic environment. Researchers are examining various theories as to why students may or may not be in school and in furthering their education. However, many people are beginning to feel that the parent(s) of a student are responsible for the academic success or failure of their particular student. One role that parents need to play in the success of their child is enforcing the lessons the child has learned in school at home. By doing simple things like going over the work and making sure the students comprehends the material, and by correcting his or her homework is a helpful way for the parent to enforce the school lessons.
When a shared set of beliefs— particularly a set that includes the core beliefs of high-poverty, high-performing schools—has not been established, the school vision is distorted or destroyed by the individual, pervasive beliefs within the school community. For this reason, it is crucial that the school principal believes and declares the belief that all students can learn. Creating a culture of learning By cultivating an environment of trust and integrity and demonstrating good leadership through effective communication, excellence, responsibility and the spirit of entrepreneurship I will set an example and develop the same qualities in my staff and students so they too will thrive when facing challenges. Monthly climate surveys will be conducted for staff to give me feedback on my performance as an administrator. I will take all comments into consideration and improve on any shortfalls I may have.
So how do you actually implement these strategies into your classroom? The answer might be to have a good classroom management and strategy plan. They would present it to their students the first day of school and then the students would know what is expected of them. Rules in a classroom are very important, the teacher teaches them to the students and the students should follow them without any consequences. Such rules could be: One-student participation or strategies to keep them on task.
When a student goes to a public school, the student can learn about the essential subjects from people who know what they're talking about that is if the student chooses to do so. At home school, there is only one (possibly two) teachers; no matter how skilled this teacher is, he or she cannot possibly compare to the diversity achieved in a public school. Another reason for a classroom setting is the benefit of learning within a group setting, some students will excel with this technique. Learning with peers can make all that gibberish in the text book
SCHOOL CULTURE School culture develops as staff members interact with each other, the students, and the community at large. If the staff members are committed to the reform introduced, then the culture will be conducive to change. In order for change to occur, schools should be places that stimulate and support teachers. This may involve a new outlook on school governance and organization. Traditionally, schools do not have the organizational capacity to formulate the goals and vision necessary to bring about an effective change in a culture.
Preventing Teacher Burnout Preposition 3 of the National Board of Professional Teacher Standards (NBPTS) states that teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning (Walden, 2008). This means that high performing teachers are expected to deliver effective instruction; engage students to ensure a disciplined learning environment; know how to assess the performance of individual students as well as the class as a whole; use multiple methods of measuring student growth and understanding and be able to clearly explain student performance to parents (Walden, 2008). Teachers, regardless of their level of commitment or dedication, face challenges at some point in their career that affect their ability to manage and monitor student learning (Kottler, 2005). Some to these challenges include constant bureaucratic restructuring; the nature of the system; feeling of indignity due to the lack of respect from parents, students, and the public (Nieto, 2003); backbiting and lack of support from colleagues; unsupportive friends or family; lack of adequate time and space to effectively perform duties; as well as personal emotional and insecurity issues (Kottler, 2005). When teachers find it difficult to deal with the demands of being a professional educator, burnout or rustout may result (Kottler, 2005).
An ongoing debate that seems to be at the center of much attention is whether community service should be mandatory in America's high schools. Numerous schools across the country have mandated that in order for their students to graduate, they must complete a predetermined amount of community service. This action though has been met with opposition from various groups who have denounced its mandatory enforcement. Proponents of mandatory community service argue that it helps build leadership skills in students and better prepares them for future jobs in which leadership is valued. It also serves as a symbiotic relationship between the volunteer and the recipient.
Dress Codes in Schools Kelly Mennillo Com/220 Due: 4/22/12 Kelly Munoz Some people believe that our schools should require their students to adapt to a dress code to improve student behavior, enhance students’ self-confidence, and reduce differences among socioeconomic levels. Others may say that policies enforcing dress codes, or requiring school uniforms violate students’ First Amendment rights, and suppress individuality. The argument over school dress codes and school-uniform policies continue to rage in the meeting rooms, administrative officers, and classrooms of public schools throughout the country. School officials place dress code policies so there will be orderly dressing amongst the students’. Dress codes are important, but they are troublesome at the same time.
Every couple of months when tuning into the news, it’s often heard of debates about public schools bringing in school uniforms. It’s often thought that the uniforms will solve multiple problems such as violence, behavior, and safety of the attending students. It is also said that it will help parents with expenses because they won’t have to keep up with the demands of expensive clothing from teenagers today. If your opinion made a difference in the decision of wearing school uniforms at your school, would you choose to wear them or be against the idea? Do you believe school uniforms make a difference in the lives of students attending schools?
