This gives children the impression that reading is dangerous, because they don’t want to make mistakes and lose the game. For example, when children are given reading assignments, such as reading aloud in class, they are forced to make mistakes in front of their peers, causing children to relate reading with feelings of humiliation. Coincidently, this has a negative effect on the student’s feelings and motives to read. They no longer feel the desire to read, because they have been pressured to overanalyze the text and draw multiple
Expository Text and Middle School Students: Some Lessons Learned Chris Street Voices from the Middle Abstract When students reach their middle school years, they are entering a very important phase where reading is essential to their education. However, this is a time when students are known for avoiding reading. This finding is based on the article “Expository Text and Middle School Students: Some Lessons Learned” written by Chris Street. According to the article, one of the solutions to engaging students with expository text is to treat narrative text and expository text differently. They necessitate dissimilar skills and teaching methods.
A Response to the Article “Why school should suck” Everyone at one point has to do something they don't want to do and school is just one of them. The article “Why school is supposed to suck”, was written by Marni Soupcoff. Her article discusses how schools are now making the “environment as gentle as possible” for students so school won't “suck”, and how that's not going to help students in the end. I believe that school should suck because it'll teach students responsibility and hard work. School has to suck because it needs “... to teach children the self-discipline and responsibility they will need to survive in the real world as productive adults.” Both these traits are key to have as adults and need to be pushed upon students during their school career.
There is an unspoken competition in open discussions in the classroom, along with underlying punishment for those who do not understand. The article shows children are placed on a pass or fail platform in front of their peers causing humiliation and pain. When they answer a question incorrectly, not only does the child know they failed, the whole class has watched them fail. Fear and public humiliation seem to create a block that causes a child to shy away from the unsure. This may not seem sensible but it is natural even in the brightest of children.
2011). I believe this is a negative aspect of his lesson and he should find another way to manage Susan and her outburst.Although I first disagreed with Mr. Scott, his lesson plan idea seemed to work for him. Mr. Scott had problems with students coming to class on time, and constantly asking for hall and bathroom passes, and constantly disrupting the class (Borich, 2011). The students also use to wait for Susan to answer the questions; “students sometimes wait to hear her ideas rather than volunteer their own” (Borich. 2011).
She provides the source of actual children that have suffered academically due to texting. She states in paragraph twenty-two, Reina Hardesty’s excessive texting, was making her grades drop . The author then tells us in paragraph twenty-four that after her parents limited Reina’s texting her grades were brought up. I think providing sources from not only professionals, but also actual people who have suffered, build the credibility of her argument. It does this by showing that it happens in real life, and not only in studies.
* Mood swings (Gollnick & Chinn, 2006). Warning signs of abuse * Bruises on body * Changes in behavior * Unexplained injuries or bruises * Changes in attitude * Seems to be scared of adult figures * Changes in emotions * Always sad or upset * Withdrawn from other students Being an educator we must look out for these signs in our students. If I had a student whom I seen these signs in, I would be concerned. I would observe the student in the classroom and see how he or she may act. I want to approach
Elizabeth Mauldin Amanda Thompson 1123 8A 06/05/2015 When I read this poem, I could sense the sarcasm and anger of the writer. The teacher had taken the time to prepare for a class so that the student obtained an optimal learning experience. They feel the student does not understand the importance of being in the class. Even the title of the poem is a clarification by the teacher to the problem of not coming to class. Anything is everything.
Full name : Nguyen Thanh Hang Class : 53NKN Response In their article “Coping with Procrastination” , Rebecca Moore Barbara Baker and Arnold Packer write “Often procrastination stems from a real or imagined fear or worry that is focus on not so much on the things you are avoiding but its potential consequences” . In the other words, because of their fear, whether it’s real or not , people postpone their works as they think they can’t do it well. I think the cause of procrastination is fear. In my first year in university, I ought to study English and it became my biggest fear. The fear that I would not be able to complete the task - or do it well enough, my task may attract criticisms or it may turn out not to have been necessary after all and I've spent hours of misery on it.
An example of Ms. Jansen classroom management would be bad dialogic instruction. Ms. Jansen attempt to build a dialogic environment by placing herself on the same level with the students is quickly undermined by the pattern of interruptions and hasty evaluations that characterizes the exchange. Thereby closing off the conversation with an evaluation (Nystrand 1997 page 76). In fact, we would maintain that the din was largely a result of the question-answer format. These students were quick to recognize that the teacher’s questions were inauthentic and quick to lose patience with them.
