t identifies two groups that are similar and comparisons are made- it seeks to discover cause and effect, avoids artificiality, can be used to study past events, no ethical problems . If studying labelling in schools which is a social process of teachers attaching positive or negative labels to students and students also doing this to teachers, this is best understood in the context of social interaction in the classroom. This would eliminate lab experimentation and would be favoured by interactionists using a field experiment approach. Main ideas concepts Some researchers have used laboratory experiments-Harvey and Stains, they looked at whether teachers had preconceived ideas about pupils of different social classes. The study indicated labelling goes on and that the labels are used to pre-judge pupils potential.
With my education I display Personal Reward, like David and probably most of the other boys at St. Matthews. I go to school not because I just want to go to be educated, I go because I am using the school, yes for education but for my own personal reward, for my future to get into a good university. The honor code used at St. Matthews can be tied into a few things we learned in class, one including morals. The boys follow the moral code and the moral code as been put into place because the school believes that it is what's right, it is a way the boys can achieve good, by following the code. The moral code is also a type of ethics called deontological ethics which is a philosophy by Kant saying that we tend towards doing the right thing because it is our duty, so it is the duty of the boys at school to follow the moral code, for example it is their duty to tell the teacher when they've seen someone cheat on a test.
What does he mean? Do you agree with him? He means that Amir is unique to other boys and never stands up for himself or fights back when he is getting bullied. Amir would rather read poetry than play soccer. I agree that Amir is different, but I also believe that his father shouldn’t treat him differently just because he doesn’t enjoy the things most boys his age enjoy.
Jim's father expect to much from his son without even noticing what could be the major problem. Of course many college students love to hang out with friends but that doesn't mean that it can affect there grades unless they are not focus on there work. When Jim's father stated that when he was in school he flew through without any problems. His parents are angry because his grades aren't getting any better. I felt like it could have been a better approach like finding out the real reason what is causing the problem.
Holden informs the reader of how he is receiving treatment in a mental hospital, describes some of the things he does not like about his school Pencey Prep, and discusses how he has recently been expelled from it. During his final days at Pencey Prep Holden becomes increasingly irritated by the people there such as his history teacher Mr. Spencer, his disgusting neighbor Ackley and his cocky roommate Stradlater. These annoyances push Holden’s mind to the edge, and he decides to leave Pencey Prep early and stay somewhere in New York City by himself for three days before he is expected to arrive at home (Salinger, “The Catcher in the Rye”). Holden’s trip to the city is an adventure filled with angry cab drivers, a heartless prostitute, and a series of Holden’s realizations and memories of life. From getting punched brutally in the gut by a hotel “pimp”, to conversing with nuns about Romeo and Juliet Holden’s trip reveals many inner aspects about himself.
I also think that not only should more states care but I think there should be some sort of funding for the school so that they can boost security, not just for their property but more for the students well-being. I also find that some schools don’t seem to care if their students are being bullied, they let it pass like it is nothing... for example my son has actually been being bullied and not just called names but the bullies would physically hurt him, and when he would tell his teacher or a yard duty what was going on they told him to suck it up and that there was nothing they could do cause he doesn’t know their name or what class/grade they are in. I know that it is not just my son’s school that does this because I have heard from several family members and friends from other towns and states that are having the same issue with their children’s schools. In my opinion more states and schools should care more about the children’s well-being; these kids are our future and what would happen to this country if most of the children end up growing up needing serious psychiatric help because they were bullied non-stop just for being different. Also the schools need to do a little more than just suspend the student that is bullying they should take a little more effort in getting these children help, suspending them isn’t going to do much all that is going to do is to stop the child from bullying for a day because he
Orwell claims that the only reason he was allowed at his school as a poor, lower class child was so that he could win a scholarship to an even better school. While this would make his school look good, it would also help him be successful in life even more. A child would not look at the long term consequences of this and could very easily see it as they were just trying to use him to make the school look better. Every school has social classes; it is not unique to just Orwell’s school. Snobbery is a part of everyday life and every adult knows this and has dealt with it.
As people would think, we wanted to throw the largest farewell party, but guess what” – takes a pause and chuckles, thinking of what’s coming – “The principal had a different idea; farewell parties within school hours were prohibited from that year on.” Looking all suspicious and rebellious continues with the story saying how they decided to stay outside after lunch and strike making it clear they were having the farewell party one way or the other. He continues: “the principal locked all the classrooms, confiscated our books, placed them in black garbage bags and let us know there would be tests on Monday. This day got to be remembered as “Black Bag Monday.” Even so, when asked about whether he regrets anything about those four years, Thomas though about it, got inspired, smiled and said “Absolutely nothing.” When summarizing his experiences and highlights throughout high school, Thomas was left speechless; “Highlight…Wow” when he finally reacted he said “too many years too many highlights but, definitely a big one was the party after high school graduation, when we realized what a family we had
*Non-Idians teacher they expect them to be dumb in class but smart outside of class. Living up to expectation in a classroom. He was expected to fail although failure is what was expected of him Sherman Alexie refused to do so. reading is a tool one can use to succeed in life. Like it or not, the importance of a good education cannot be stressed enough.
He also doesn’t like it when Scout complains about Walter taking all of the syrup. This shows he wants his children to be polite and have manners. Another point is that Atticus thinks his children should have a good education. This is shown in “In your case, the law remains rigid. So to school you must go.” This shows us that Atticus doesn’t want his children to be brought up like he was.
