When students see others doing this it quickly reminds those who may have forgot that they too need to place their homework in the basket. Mr. Collet is then able to quickly see who has turned in homework and who has not. He also has provided the opportunity to each parent to purchase a daily planner; the planner allows the student to write down daily homework assignments for each class period and parents may follow up by looking at the planner nightly to ensure that the work is getting completed. Mr. Collet also allows for the students to participate in deciding what homework assignments are going to be assigned. Students get to give the opinion on what is best for them to learn from by helping Mr. Collet collectively agree upon what material they will have homework on.
A1. Positive Social Interaction The homework policy of scenario two would promote best practices in positive social interaction in several ways inside a second grade classroom. In the homework policy, it is clearly stated that students cannot turn in late assignments until they discuss it with the teacher. This allows for positive social interaction between the students and the teacher. The teacher and the student would discuss why the homework assignment was late.
The principal and I did not agree upon the punishment for the student. After explaining the reasoning behind my decision not to suspend, the principal let the decision stand. I felt my decision would have a positive impact on the student. I also gave this student an alternative solution rather than running away from his problems at school. Another ethical issue occurred when the principal allowed the counselor to transport a student home to pick up homework assignments.
Most students don’t want to disappoint their teacher and having to appeal to the teacher for not having the homework turned in on time, So they will make sure to keep up with their work and what is expected of them. By having requirement like due date allows students to be mindful of prioritizing and time management. For teachers, building these bonds with students helps to develop an extensive repertoire of strategies, tools and methods
Some people deserve a second chance, but it shouldn’t be given to someone that doesn’t show effort towards school. If someone is failing a class you can’t always blame the student. You have to put in perspective that the teacher could be bad at teaching,or perhaps the student missed a lot of class due to being sick,or maybe the class is just too hard. So however, handing out extra credit could be tolerable to the students that show effort, and not to the students who mess around in class. One reason a student should receive extra credit to pass, is that they have trouble with that one specific subject.
Scenario 1: A teacher says, “Okay, everyone. You've done such a good job of turning in your homework this week that you don't have to do your assignment for the weekend. We'll do it Monday instead.” (a) What concept from behaviourism is the teacher attempting to apply in this case? The teacher in this scenario is using positive reinforcement in addition with the Premack principle, where the teacher is using a more desired activity (no assignment on the weekend) to serve as a positive reinforce for a less desired activity (Eggen & Kauchak, p 169). (b) What is the teacher's goal in making this statement?
Classroom Management, Engagement, & Motivation: Task 1 Ms. Smith’s homework policy applies the principles of best practices in positive social interaction by being clear in her expectations and allowing opportunity for communication and feedback. Ms. Smith’s homework policy promotes positive social interaction between herself and the student when she verbally explains her policy at the beginning of every year. She is clear with her expectations and reinforces them throughout the year. Sending a copy of the policy home to the parents and providing the student with their own copy promotes student-parent interaction as well as parent-teacher interaction. Ms. Smith encourages interaction when students fail to pickup graded homework assignments and need to ask for them after class.
Attendance will be taken at each class and will be used for student monitoring. You should treat class like your job; if you miss work you call your supervisor. If you will be absent for more than one class then you should call or e-mail me. I drop the lowest quiz. If you are going to miss a quiz, have a legitimate reason, and can make the quiz up in the testing center before the next class, then contact me before the end of the class by email or voicemail.
Every student procrastinates. We tend to put many things off to the side and do them later. But when that later comes, we are rushing to finish whatever assignment we may have, causing us stress to finish it on time, which may result in a bad grade in the end. As a student I can say I am one of these many students that procrastinate in school. Even though it seems as the easy way out, I need to stop this procrastination that has been with me or my future will not look too promising.
I am going to use some techniques described in this section such as scheduling early classes, studying in between classes and when I am studying, actually focusing. This quarter my latest class starts at 9 a.m., and my earliest class is 8 a.m. This already shows how I put this section into effect. I plan on scheduling my classes early like this for the rest of my college career that way I can get an early start every day. I try to study in between my classes during my two hour breaks on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so I don’t fall behind in my schoolwork.
